Nordex, Manuka Resources, American Lithium - The profiteers of scarcity

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Lithium
  • Commodities

Besides the raging war in Ukraine, the discussion about the energy industry of the future accompanies us daily. It has already been decided that renewable energies such as wind power and photovoltaics will be the way forward. Likewise, the move away from the internal combustion engine to battery-powered electric motors is in the bag. But the implementation problems will be with us over the next few years. Where will producers get the raw materials that are already in short supply? Another critical issue is energy storage. Here, too, there is an increasing demand for a raw material that is currently produced primarily in Russia and China.

K+S, Alerio Gold, American Lithium - Which commodity stocks offer the most potential in the supercycle?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Lithium

Commodities will outperform the other major asset classes, equities, bonds and currencies, in the new year. Goldman Sachs has been predicting a commodities supercycle for some time. Of course, not all commodities will perform equally well. There is a supply problem in some areas. In the US, for example, experts are critical of corn or soybean inventories. Therefore, we look at three companies and shed light on whether the commodity produced could experience a boom in 2023.

Commodity stocks poised for a comeback? Barrick Gold, American Lithium, Globex Mining, Standard Lithium

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Lithium
  • Commodities

Inflation is weakening, and the interest rate cycle is nearing its end. This argues for a comeback of gold mining stocks. In any case, the gold price is already pointing in the right direction. Now heavyweights like Barrick Gold must follow. Explorer shares offer disproportionate opportunities. However, Globex Mining is an interesting alternative for those who shy away from individual risks. With more than 200 investments in the commodity sector, the Canadians are positioned similarly to a fund. Currently, the cash balance alone corresponds to half of the market capitalization. In addition, there is positive news from the projects. The lithium sector is also starting to recover. Companies like Standard Lithium and American Lithium are recovering from the sell-off at the end of the year. In addition, takeover fantasy attracts.

Rheinmetall, Globex Mining, Brenntag - Just before the breakout

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Defense

The themes of the past year are likely to continue to dominate the markets in 2023. Despite excellent prospects, shares from the renewable energy and electromobility sectors corrected strongly and are currently trading at attractive long-term levels. Due to strong demand from this sector and the strengthening of the defense sector since the Ukraine conflict, commodity producers benefit in turn. In particular, companies from the Western world are likely to move closer into focus here.

Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, Rio Tinto - Commodity supercycle continues in 2023

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities

2022 was the year of energy commodities. Goldman Sachs expects commodities to continue to deliver the best returns for investors in 2023, with increases of over 40%. Goldman Sachs has been predicting a commodity supercycle since late 2020. In 2023, the price of Brent crude oil is forecast to rise to USD 105 per barrel in the last quarter, and the price of copper is forecast to rise from around USD 8,400 to USD 10,050 per ton. The main argument is the low level of investment in the commodity sector, which is unlikely to meet demand. Therefore, today we look at three companies from the commodity sector.

Infineon, Manuka Resources, Barrick Gold- The acquisition wave is underway

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Commodities

In times of inflation, rising interest rates, skyrocketing energy prices and global recession fears, the consolidation process will likely accelerate significantly in many industries next year. Capital-intensive, as yet unprofitable companies with an innovative business model face major challenges if they are to retain their independence in the future. Larger groups are already digging in their heels to prepare their portfolios for the future. Especially in the precious metals sector, increasing acquisition activity has been observed in recent weeks.

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Iamgold - Takeovers on the rise

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Investments

The record year 2020, with highs of over USD 2,070 per troy ounce at the base price, filled the coffers of the large gold producers. Due to the correction that has been going on for 2 years, smaller and mid-sized mining companies lost more than 80% of their value, making them attractive takeover targets at a cheaper level. Recently, there has been an increase in acquisitions, which are likely to increase further in the coming months. A particularly high level of activity can be observed on the African continent at the moment, as the latest example shows.

Bayer, BioNTech, Auxico Resources: 200% price gain possible?

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • RareEarths
  • Biotechnology

With lower than expected inflation in the US, the year-end rally has picked up speed. Could the recession be off after all, or at least short-lived? This would likely boost the stock market in the coming year as well. Today we look at three stocks with potential that benefit from global trends and less from developments in Germany. In the case of Bayer, Bernstein Research has outed itself as a super bull. The global agricultural business should continue to run strong. Auxico Resources is positioning itself as a trader of rare earths and critical raw materials. Revenues are expected to jump significantly in the coming year, and analysts say the stock could triple. BioNTech could finally break out of the sideways trend it has been in since early 2022. The new combination vaccine and the cancer pipeline give hope.

Climate protection & energy crisis: BYD, Mercedes, Globex Mining, Volkswagen - Invest in metals!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • GreenTech

Those who want to switch from fossil energy to electrical forms of use forget the sometimes poor efficiency in converting fossil primary energy forms to electricity from the socket. Truly green solutions are defined per se by "GreenTech" applications that improve the overall energy balance or even reduce it to zero. A prerequisite for all efforts is access to inexpensive raw materials, especially high-tech metals. These are copper, iron, nickel, silver, and, as the scope of applications expands, silver, platinum and gold. By the fall of 2022, green power yields were between 43 and 66% of the grid capacity. Fossil fuels had a share of only 15 to 20%. Winter has now set in, and trouble looms as the fossil component is more than uncertain for Europe, and solar power yields are falling. Where is the solution?
