Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Investments

The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.

BASF, Manuka Resources, Varta - Buy when the cannons thunder!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Batteries
  • chemicals

That is Warren Buffet's motto, and the Oracle of Omaha has done very well with it over the past decades. In the biggest crises, the investor always made a bold move, while others waited rigidly in fear. This could also be observed during the last Corona Crash. Many waited for lower prices, or at least a retest of the lows, which never came. At the moment, it seems to be the case again that no one wants to buy shares, and this is precisely where the opportunity lies. No one can predict the exact low, but if you want to be there, you have to get in at some point. We look at three companies that have great potential.

BYD, Globex Mining, Newmont, Freeport-McMoRan - Copper with doubling potential

  • Mining

  • Commodities
  • Electromobility

The price of copper has lost around a third since March of the current stock market year. Investors are selling the metal, which is known as an economic barometer, due to global recession fears and concerns of a drop in demand. However, due to the great importance of copper with regard to the energy turnaround, the tide is likely to turn again soon. Mining companies and commodity traders are already warning of a massive shortage of the world's most important metal. Goldman Sachs expects the price of copper to reach USD 15,000 per ton by 2025, which would mean a doubling of the current level.

Nel, Steinhoff, Viva Gold: What is going on?

Is the rebound coming for the Nel share, or are all the dams breaking? At the moment, this is the situation with the popular hydrogen specialist. After the quarterly figures, Credit Suisse, among others, lowered their thumbs and the share is also clearly battered on the chart. The latter also applies to Viva Gold. Operationally, things are going well for the Canadians. Can a stabilizing gold price turn investors' attention to the low valuation? Investors have been debating for years whether Steinhoff is favorably valued or not. Recently, the share price jumped significantly. What is going on?

Allkem, Infinity Stone, FREYR Battery - Nobody can avoid these stocks!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • renewableenergies

The current energy crisis makes us painfully aware of how much we have slept through the restructuring of our energy supply in recent decades. The famous scientist Carl Sagan explained in a speech already in 1990, 32 years ago, why a restructuring of the energy supply makes sense completely apart from the effects of the greenhouse effect. Namely, reducing dependence on difficult supplier countries, increasing energy security by extension of fossil resources, and stimulating the economy by creating new industries. Now, finally, we seem to be on the right track. Shareholders can also benefit greatly - if they back the right horses.

Rock Tech Lithium, Edison Lithium, Albemarle, Allkem - Defying the recession

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility

Fears of a global recession continue to grow, with prices for commodities such as copper, lumber, cotton and even grains correcting sharply. In contrast, the lithium price continues to hold at a high level after the explosive rise at the beginning of the year. The reason for this is the continued strong demand from the electric car industry. In China alone, sales of electric cars amounted to 3.2 million units last year, and 5 million vehicles are expected to be delivered this year. In contrast, the existing supply of lithium resources is scarce. In addition to existing producers, the primary beneficiaries of this shortage are the exploration companies, which have already been able to secure attractive properties.

BYD, Varta, Globex Mining: Shares with diversification

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • Diversification

Diversification reduces risks. This applies not only to investments but also to companies. BYD, for example, sells not only cars but also batteries, commercial vehicles and more. The focus is currently clearly on the car division, but the Chinese group is also stepping on the gas in its foreign expansion in other areas. With more than 200 holdings in the commodities sector, Globex Mining is also broadly diversified, and its cash holdings alone now account for a good half of its market capitalization. In addition, there is positive news from the projects. Varta is trying to diversify with its entry into battery production. However, the Company is not making any progress in this. Perhaps there will be news at an investor conference next week.

German economy is in danger of crashing: E.ON, Globex Mining, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank in focus

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • climatechange
  • energycrisis

Germany's free-market decline continues vehemently. After using about 40% of imported gas for electricity in recent years, local utilities now lack real alternatives. Prices are rising dramatically, and gas, in particular, seems to know only one direction - up! The dependence on energy imports and the intended sanctioning is becoming a price driver for local utilities, electricity production and thus the entire economy. As yet, there is little evidence of the benefits of the said climate change; so far, only the cost increases are noticeable. Shareholders should be alert to which areas could soon be affected.

Analysts are bullish on BYD, less bullish on Varta and news from Infinity Stone Ventures

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • Lithium

In terms of sales figures, BYD has already overtaken industry star Tesla. But the share could not benefit from this due to the partial sales of major shareholder Berkshire Hathaway. After the price slide, it now seems to be regaining its footing. Analysts are bullish and see great opportunities for the Chinese e-car maker in foreign expansion, among other things. Experts see few opportunities at Varta at the moment, and the chart is battered. Most recently, an analyst reduced the price target to EUR 65. The newsflow currently offers little hope. Infinity Stone Ventures is an entirely different story. The specialist for critical raw materials in Canada benefits from the political environment and is expanding its lithium areas. More news can be expected in the fall.

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.
