Steinhoff, Silver Viper, Nordex - To all the savers: Save your money!

Consumer prices in the USA rose to a whopping 5.4% in June. That is the highest increase since 2008. The Federal Reserve is challenged but continues to keep its feet still and continues with the ultra-loose monetary policy since, in their opinion, it is only a temporary loss of purchasing power of the US dollar. The European Central Bank is now following suit with its change in strategy, opening the door for further demonetization. Protect your assets and invest in precious metals for the long term.

    Central banks in a quandary

    Economic stimulus programs, historical national debt and economic growth on the one hand, and rising, rampant inflation on the other. The United States and Europe continue to maintain ultra-loose monetary policies with unlimited bond-buying programs and historically low-interest rates in favor of growth. The opinion of central bankers, or at least what is communicated to the outside world, is that the high rates of price increases were triggered by the economy's recovery after the Corona pandemic and would cool down again in the year.

    The truth is probably that the extreme debt levels and the extensive infrastructure programs, including the investments in the energy turnaround, make it virtually impossible to raise interest rates more sharply. That opens the door to a global devaluation of money. In addition to investing in fundamentally strong stocks, one should also secure one's assets by buying physical precious metals and shares in gold and silver mining companies.

    Consistently positive news

    Good chances of long-term asset growth exist with an investment in the junior explorer Silver Viper. Operating in the state of Sonora in northwestern Mexico, the Canadian gold and silver exploration company operates the La Virginia gold-silver project, formerly part of Pan American Silver, covering an area of over 6,880 hectares and owns 100% of the concession areas. In addition, Silver Viper, led by world-class mining specialists from the Belcarra Group, has signed an option agreement to acquire all of the shares in the Rubi-Esperanza claim group located within these concession areas.

    During the past year, 100 drill holes totaling over 27km were completed to submit a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, which was completed last month. It increased the project database from 53km to now 80km. The better than expected estimates indicated resources of 154,300 ounces of gold and 6,929,000 ounces of silver. Total inferred resources are 246,300 ounces of gold and 12.49 million ounces of silver.

    Silver Viper plans to take the next steps by exploring a zone called "El Rubi," located 4 to 5km north of the historic mining area. Here, exploration work indicates a significant zone with significant resources. In addition, the El Rubi zone is believed to be open both laterally and at depth and can be expanded with further drilling. With a CAD 6 million private placement already successfully completed, the exploration programs for the entire year are funded. In addition, Silver Viper could receive an additional CAD 8.3 million through the exercise of warrants at a price of CAD 0.65.

    The bride is being made pretty and should be an exciting takeover candidate if the news flow continues to be positive. The share price is at CAD 0.48, so there is still significant potential at the exercise price of the warrants.

    Steinhoff wants to know

    After a sell-off of Steinhoff shares to below 8 cents in recent weeks, shareholders' hopes returned on Friday. The reason: Steinhoff announced it is increasing its settlement offer by 66%, or EUR 269 million, to now EUR 613 million for injured parties from the "market" acquisition of securities, at Steinhoff International Holding NV and Steinhoff Ltd, and for Steinhoff International Holding NV injured parties due to contractual claimants.

    Due to the strong positive development of Steinhoff's business, the Company is now in a position to adjust the settlement offer upwards. However, the increase of the settlement amount does not apply to lenders or contractual partners of the old Steinhoff Ltd. in South Africa. The Company is trying to satisfy creditor meetings in the Netherlands and South Africa through the higher offer. We advise against an investment. Buying Steinhoff shares still resembles a gamble.

    End of the correction?

    There is already a lot of negativity in the share price of wind turbine manufacturer Nordex. Weak figures for the first quarter with disappointing margins and a surprisingly announced capital increase. Now, last week, a profit warning from competitor Siemens Gamesa followed, which shook the entire wind industry. After significant price losses, the Nordex share price returned north after briefly breaking through the support line at EUR 16.

    The reason for this was the announcement that 98.20% of all subscription rights in the capital increase had been exercised. In total, the capital measure flushed almost EUR 390 million into the Company's coffers. In addition, the major shareholder Acciona waived loan claims against Nordex for EUR 196.58 million in exchange for the new shares. There is currently no urgent need to invest in the Hamburg-based company.

    The issue of inflation and currency devaluation is likely to remain a dominant theme in the capital markets. By investing in gold or silver mining shares such as Silver Viper, it is possible to protect your capital. You can also protect your capital by refraining from investing in Steinhoff. At Nordex, too, caution is advised, at least for the short term.

    Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, BP - Commodities In the spotlight: Supercycle started?

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Silver
    • Commodities
    • Oil
    • Gas

    Global demand for commodities is reaching new heights, partly driven by increasing geopolitical tensions. The exchange of attacks between Iran and Israel is a case in point. This conflict, deeply rooted in religious and political differences, continues to escalate and could have far-reaching consequences for international stability and commodity markets. With this latest escalation of the Middle East conflict, security aspects in the global competition for important resources such as gold, silver and copper are taking center stage. China is demonstrating its hunger for resources. However, the price of oil has also risen recently. There has long been talk of a commodity supercycle. Perhaps it has now finally begun. Where should one invest now?

    Discount battle over: Commodities on the counter-offensive! Rheinmetall, Power Nickel, BASF and Varta in focus

    Since the bombing of Israel by Iran, the clocks are ticking differently in the Middle East. The next stage of escalation has been reached. If Israel now uses the right to defense as an opportunity to initiate something bigger, it is here: the conflagration. Gold and silver are shining as safe-haven currencies and pulling long-neglected commodity shares through the roof. Now is the time to keep the sails in the wind and ride the long-awaited upward momentum. In the energy transition, strategically safer jurisdictions that can safely serve the growing hunger for commodities are still in demand. We highlight a few opportunities.

    The cannons are thundering, and gold and silver remain in demand! Barrick, Newmont, Desert Gold and SMT Scharf in focus

    The overnight attack by Iran on Israel underscores the current geopolitical uncertainty. Regardless of whether there is further escalation in the Middle East, the world has already changed dramatically since February 2022. This includes shifts in investor behavior. Until the first quarter of 2024, shares in the artificial intelligence and high-tech sectors were bullish; now, defense stocks and precious metals are on the agenda. After decades of disarmament, NATO, in particular, is now facing a decade of rearmament, and private investors are expressing their restraint in consumption by increasing their focus on private security. This is reflected in the increased purchases of gold and silver. For years, precious metals have been stable guarantors of the daily dwindling purchasing power. We believe that the new valuation cycle in the commodities sector is only just beginning, which is why we are examining favorable entry opportunities.
