Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, K+S - Hype or sustainable?

  • Gold
  • fertilizer
  • Defense

Already during the Corona pandemic, clear winners and losers could be identified. Vaccine manufacturers multiplied, and companies related to online trading also performed better than the market. In the current Ukraine crisis, however, the signs are changing. Suddenly, defense stocks, which were frowned upon a short time ago, are all the rage. Fertilizer companies, benefiting from the sanctions and the resulting supply shortages, are also gaining favor with investors. But how sustainable are the current increases? Gold mining stocks are also doing very well, but in contrast to Rheinmetall, Hensoldt & Co., they are performing much weaker.

Adler Group, Amazon, Almonty - Free fall and strong growth

  • Tungsten
  • RealEstate
  • Defense

Investing in real estate is becoming increasingly volatile, whether as a landlord due to higher energy prices or as an investor in the Adler Group. In the latter case, auditor KPMG did not put an audit certificate on the 2021 annual financial statements because it remains unclear how the loss of around EUR 1 billion came about. The share slid into the basement, and four board members resigned. A look across the pond at Amazon, and Amazon Web Services, in particular, shows what can help a balanced portfolio mix. Boeing, the Seattle-based company, has gained a significant customer in the aviation industry. In this industry, the rare earth metal tungsten is in great demand. Thanks to its high density, it protects against radiation and is used for this purpose in the sheathing of aircraft. We take a look at what investors should watch out for now.

Defense Metals, Gazprom, ThyssenKrupp - Winners and losers

  • Defense
  • RareEarths
  • Military
  • Oil
  • Gas
  • Steel

A brave Ukrainian woman hunts down a Russian drone - with a well-aimed throw through a jar of pickled tomatoes. For defense, every means is justified. But there is also a more strategic way to invest in companies that supply raw materials for military technology - and without conflict for investors with a sense of justice. The German economy, on the other hand, could be in for a real shock if Gazprom makes good on its threats and shuts down Nord Stream 1 as a result of the sanctions. Germany is one of the biggest buyers of Russian gas. ThyssenKrupp is also benefiting from the current situation. It becomes quite clear what the Group is really gaining from right now.
