E-car surprise in China: Mercedes-Benz, BYD, Grid Metals

  • Mining
  • Electromobility
  • Lithium
  • Nickel
  • Commodities

E-cars? Yes, please! At least, that is the case for Mercedes CEO Ola Källenius. He sees his company clearly focused on the electric drive - regardless of technology openness. This seems to be paying off at Mercedes: In the first quarter, the Swabians sold almost twice as many e-cars as in the previous year. But how far can this growth go? What do the absolute figures say? We make the comparison and outline investment opportunities.

Opportunity-oriented investing: Barrick Gold, Canadian North Resources, Steinhoff

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Lithium
  • Commodities

Inflation in the US is rising less quickly than expected - but what is the gold price doing? It remains at a high level. The reason is that the situation in many currency areas remains tense. The Eurozone, for example, is still far from inflation rates with a five before the decimal point. Investors should therefore continue to keep gold and commodities on their radar. We show which investments could be worthwhile.

Battle for scarce raw materials - Nordex, Orestone Mining, Glencore

  • Commodities

The battle for raw materials has become increasingly intense in recent years due to the energy transition. The increasing demand for renewable energies to reduce global dependence on fossil fuels and combat climate change has led to increased scarcity. Metals such as copper, lithium, cobalt and rare earths are crucial for the production of batteries, solar cells and other renewable energy technologies. Competition for access to these raw materials has political, economic and social implications worldwide.

Mercedes-Benz, Canadian North Resources, Rheinmetall: Canada leads the way in raw material supply for electromobility

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • PreciousMetals
  • Investments

The energy turnaround is prompting German carmakers such as Mercedes-Benz and defence companies such as Rheinmetall to further expand their search for precious metals. In particular, the Stuttgart-based DAX-listed company has chosen the treasure-rich country of Canada as a cooperation partner for the guaranteed supply of nickel, lithium and cobalt. For explorer Canadian North Resources, such agreements are ideal as the Company pushes ahead with its 100% owned Ferguson Lake nickel, copper, cobalt, palladium and platinum project: further drilling is promising.

  • Mining

  • Banking
  • RealEstate

March was a dark month for the shares of Deutsche Bank and Vonovia - the prices of both companies fell by more than 20%. In recent weeks, the uncertainty surrounding banks and real estate companies was too great. At the same time, the gold price rose significantly and even surpassed the USD 2,000 mark. We look at what the contrasting price movements mean and where laggards can be found.

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities

In recent weeks, two major banks, Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse, have caught the attention of investors as both institutions struggle with various problems. These developments have rekindled fears of a possible banking crisis, prompting investors to seek safe havens. One of the winners of this development has been the price of gold, which has surged in recent days. So today, we look at two precious metals companies and Deutsche Bank.

Goodbye banks - the Greentech rally is on: Shares of BYD, Canadian North, Mercedes Group and BMW are in focus!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • GreenTech

Blunt, clear text - that is what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change had promised, in case governments still did not get it. The latest "State of the World Report" is clear. Hesitation is a thing of the past. The message: action is needed now and must be taken worldwide. This is the conclusion of the so-called synthesis report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was presented yesterday in Interlaken, Switzerland. Leading scientists have spent the past week wrestling with more than 650 government representatives to lay things out as transparently as possible. The conclusion is quickly formulated: Full throttle for the Greentech industry!

Nervousness is back! Investors worldwide fear a new banking quake, and not just since the SVB settlement in the US. But the situation is anything but clear-cut in other respects as well: surprisingly good economic data and recalcitrant inflation could cause interest rates to rise further - and trigger renewed turmoil. We highlight three safe bets from yesterday and today and explain where an investment might still be worthwhile.

Running out of fuel? BYD, Porsche, VW, Globex Mining - Metals in demand!

  • Mining
  • Gold

  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • Metals

In benchmarking, anyone who sees electromobility at the forefront cannot ignore a powerful battery. In the last 3 years, there have been no real leaps forward in development, but at least power compression in lithium-ion technology achieved a doubling of the range and, in parallel, also lowered the previously long charging times. This made an electric vehicle suitable for long-distance travel for the first time, even though faster discharge must be expected in winter due to non-engine services such as heating. But technological development continues, and BYD, as one of the world market leaders, sets technological standards. Which stocks are the favourites in the sector?

Raw materials revolution from Africa: K+S, Globex Mining, Freyr Battery

Lithium, cobalt or even manganese - what reads like the list of ingredients for the mobility and energy revolution is available in abundance in Africa. However, China has been a major player in Africa for years and was already investing heavily when Europe was still seeing golden times for combustion engines. In the meantime, however, that has changed: As Handelsblatt reports, more and more African countries want to do their own thing regarding raw materials and turn from exporters into processors - for the countries of Europe, this is an opportunity.
