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.

    Since February 24 at the latest, a new era has also begun in Germany. While before that, it was still possible to avoid the energy turnaround somewhat, the war has changed everything. Fossil fuels are no longer just considered dirty, but also expensive. The energy turnaround that has been triggered is also shaking up the stock market. We present companies that could surprise positively and clarify how investors should best invest.

    High energy prices and significant increases in inflation and interest rates are causing headaches for investors. However, the stock market is punishing a number of shares too heavily. Despite the challenging environment, analysts identify several attractive entry opportunities. Stock markets always assess the future; the temporarily distorted perception of opportunities and risks opens up many investment opportunities for forward-looking investors.

    The strong dollar has weighed on the gold price in recent weeks. However, the strength of the US dollar is rather a weakness of the euro. While the FED raised interest rates to fight inflation, the ECB hesitated. While the ECB recently raised interest rates by 50 basis points, it was 75 in the US. In addition, the energy crisis in Europe, especially Germany, is putting additional pressure on the euro. For US exports, this is not good news. Therefore, the markets gratefully accepted Jerome Powell's statements. The chairman of the FED wants to slow down the pace of interest rate increases. The gold price also jumped in response. We look at three companies that should benefit from a rising gold price.
