The US-Department of Labor did not have good news to share yesterday. Although the number of initial applications for benefits from the US unemployment insurance scheme decreased in the week ending September 26, seasonally adjusted, it still amounted to 837,000, which was then corrected upward to 873,000. Compared to the previous week, this is only 36,000 fewer than previously reported. 11.77 million people now receive unemployment benefits in the USA. The gold market has known for a while now of the huge hole in the public coffers, due to the economic slump of over 30%, created by the pandemic. The latest market correction is complete, and it is heading north again at rates of over USD 1,900.00.

    SIEMENS - separation of the energy sector successful

    The spin-off of the Siemens energy division must be regarded as successful. The former division became independent at the end of September. With just under 730 million shares and a current share price of EUR 22.74, the market capitalization is still EUR 16.6 billion. That would even be enough for the DAX, although the parent company is already listed there. The new MDAX aspirant has 90,000 employees and achieved a turnover of EUR 29 billion at last count.

    Siemens shareholders were able to profit twice over because the long-standing conglomerate discount has now been reversed to some extent, for the better, as a result of the corporate splitting. On the one hand, they now hold an additional share in their securities account, which will pay regular dividends, and the spin-off effect of around EUR 11 billion was significantly less than the new share is now worth. This is how we work in the interests of our shareholders - thank you, Siemens!

    NEL ASA - Share price cooling after the Nikola-beating

    The scandal about the alleged fraud at Nikola also dragged the hydrogen company NEL ASA into the depths. Since the beginning of September, the price went down by 33%, which had previously reached an annual high of EUR 2.17. The reason was doubts that the network of hydrogen filling stations in North America, which was already believed to be "sold", would not make it into NEL's books so quickly after all.

    Nevertheless, the figures which were presented at the end of August were not that bad. The turnover in the second quarter increased by 21% to NOK 149 million compared to the previous year - which, converted to Euro, only amounts to 13.6 million. With the level of awareness of the stock exchange, the order backlog at least increased by 75% to a good NOK 1 billion. However, the North American order must be considered a blockbuster given the still low turnover. The loss of this order is therefore likely to harm the NEL share for long term.

    BLACKROCK GOLD - spin-off fantasy also driving the price of gold mines

    The Board of Directors of Blackrock Gold Corp. is currently evaluating a proposal to transfer the company's Silver Cloud property located in northern Nevada, to a newly formed subsidiary (SpinCo). Following the financing of SpinCo, the shares will be distributed to Blackrock shareholders. Similar to Siemens, different issues are separated from each other, as the separate valuation is usually above the price for the group. Blackrock Gold will focus in the future on the Tonopah West property, also in the US state of Nevada. Five weeks ago, a 1.5 metre interval of approximately 3,600 grams silver equivalent per tonne was identified in drill hole TW 20-001. This is excellent mineralization that makes a mine look profitable.

    Andrew Pollard, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "With gold hovering near all-time highs and our Tonopah West property dominating the show, we see this as the perfect backdrop to unlock value for investors by spinning out what was once our flagship property, Silver Cloud, into a separate, discovery-oriented public company. (...)."

    The company's management is currently considering granting Blackrock shareholders one SpinCo share for every three common shares of Blackrock. Blackrock's share price has increased sevenfold in 2020 and is currently consolidating at a high level. If the spin-off goes smoothly without objections, a significant price increase is still possible with a tailwind from the precious metals front.

    BioNTech, BYD and Desert Gold: Shares for the rebound

    • Gold
    • Electromobility
    • Biotechnology

    Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.

    Barrick Gold, Edgemont Gold, Rio Tinto - Are gold stocks taking off again?

    • Gold

    With the start of the Ukraine crisis, the gold price skyrocketed, but since March 8, we find ourselves in a consolidation. The 200-day line is currently holding, and it could go up again from here. But let's look at the reasons for the weakness in the gold price. On the one hand, there is the strong dollar, which naturally puts pressure on the gold price, and on the other hand, bond yields in the US are climbing again. After the FED announced on May 4 that it would not raise interest rates by more than 0.5 percentage points, which was originally feared, the gold price jumped again. Demand for physical gold remains high. We look at three companies in the gold sector.

    Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

    • Gold
    • fertilizer
    • Defense

    Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.
