BYD, Auxico Resources, Hensoldt, Rheinmetall - Prepared for the future

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

Russia's invasion of Ukraine at the end of February this year changed everything. While global stock markets fell into a state of shock, shares in defense companies boomed. With the arms buildup in the Western world, the future looks bright for companies that were still viewed critically before the war of aggression. However, in order to produce enough tanks, aircraft and other war equipment, the industry needs a variety of critical metals for which demand already exceeds supply.

Wind power is a crucial component of the energy transition. Rare earths are used to increase the efficiency of wind turbines and electric motors. Dysprosium and terbium, in particular, are in demand. But although rare earths are anything but rare, they are only found in a few regions worldwide. Scientists at Darmstadt Technical University have now developed processes to use rare earths more efficiently. We explain the technology and shed light on three stocks related to rare earths.

Rheinmetall, Saturn Oil + Gas, Amazon - These shares are growing in the face of crises

Tech groups like Amazon are laying off 10,000 employees to get back on track. Shareholders will be happy, and Amazon's Alexa department employees should quickly sign up with Indeed. The department is posting the biggest losses in 2022. Rheinmetall AG is off to a good start through the crisis. Thanks to the "ring swap" deal, the Düsseldorf-based company is now supplying the Greeks with fresh tanks. In turn, the Greeks give their Soviet-designed tanks to Ukraine's soldiers. Rheinmetall's share price has risen by 127.14% since the beginning of the year. Also among the crisis winners is Saturn Oil & Gas. With its numerous active oil drilling projects, investors have a broadly diversified portfolio at their disposal.

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, Nordex - Top opportunities in critical commodities

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

A quick end to the Ukraine conflict is becoming increasingly remote due to recent events. NATO's military buildup is giving the global defense industry a boom that will likely lift company sales to a new level in the coming years. An important building block for implementing weapons systems is the use of rare earth metals. However, China has a monopoly on the critical raw material value chain, a country that is itself in the midst of an escalating conflict with Taiwan.

High voltage is the order of the day here: Rheinmetall, Hensoldt, Kleos Space, and Kion under power!

  • Space
  • Defense
  • Inflation

In the current environment, good advice is expensive. Some fundamental analyses provide the most favorable valuation parameters in 5 years, while at the same time, the depressive environment is causing one major sell-off after another. Not even a year ago, equities were even considered "no alternative" by banks and fund managers in pension provisioning. Although this is true in the very long term, this calculation only works if the portfolio management system above it correctly assesses the big waves and sets the proper risk ratio. When looking at individual stocks, it is worth first looking at some bombed-out shares.

Nordex, Rheinmetall, Barsele Minerals: Turnaround potential!

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Turnaround
  • Defense

These three stocks have turnaround potential. Admittedly, investing is not easy in the current environment with inflation, rising interest rates and war in Ukraine. But challenging times offer great opportunities. Take Rheinmetall, for example: The stock has corrected by over 30%, yet the prospects are good and analysts also see a price potential of over 70%. Nordex has many problems of its own making, but here too, the industry environment is right, thanks to global investment packages for renewable energy. At Barsele Minerals, the gold price is a burden, but in the meantime, the market capitalization is well below the asset's value, and the recent capital increase was significantly oversubscribed.

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, MP Materials - The trend persists

And once again, the recently started upward movement on the stock markets is abruptly ended by new inflation data from the US. Consumer prices rose by 8.3% last month, the core rate by 6.3%. The figures were thus once again higher than economists' estimates, making further interest rate hikes more likely. Higher interest rates are a further burden on the economy. In addition, high demand is causing prices for urgently needed raw materials to rise further.

Defense Metals, Thyssenkrupp, Rheinmetall - New problems with critical raw materials

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

Many people are currently suffering from high energy costs, which are also affecting companies. Some of their products are becoming significantly more expensive as a result. Added to this is the smoldering trade conflict between the USA and China. Most recently, Nvidia was no longer allowed to export two of its chips to China. China and Russia are rich in raw materials and, in some cases, have a monopoly. There are already many critical metals whose demand can currently only be met by China. The most important of these are rare earths, over 90% of which are processed in China. The EU and the US are trying to become more independent but are encountering new problems. The critical metals industry urgently needs new skilled workers. In many companies, experienced engineers have long since reached retirement age. There is an acute need for action here.

Hydrogen, electromobility, armaments - they still exist, the trends that bring investors double-digit returns within a very short time. But where is the line between a bull market and a bear market rally? Instead of betting on yesterday's high flyers, investors can invest in stocks where scarcity and the spirit of the times coincide. We outline three possible investments and get to the bottom of the related stocks.

Rheinmetall, Kleos Space, Palantir - Is the Ukraine war spreading?

On July 27, the NATO Defense College presented a report warning of an attack by Russia on a NATO ally. According to the report, Russia could establish a military buffer zone. Initially, this would primarily affect countries of the former Soviet Union, first and foremost Moldova. In addition, analysts assume that Russia has not yet demonstrated its full military strength in Ukraine and can also quickly compensate for current losses. If the assumptions are correct, the war will continue for a while. We therefore take a look at three companies that should benefit.
