Uranium with exploding demand! Kraken Energy ideally positioned, hydrogen with Nel ASA and Plug Power in rebound?

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Hydrogen
  • climatechange

Some politicians are feverishly dreaming of making energy generation climate-neutral! Those who take a closer look at the matter realize that the speed of adaptation to more sustainable electricity production must be supported by sizeable public investment budgets. In Germany and the EU, so-called eco-taxes are levied on private transport, which are used to finance alternative energy generation. That is the green theory, as expensive environmental projects should benefit the general public. Because the EU recently gave nuclear energy the "green light" in its taxonomy, this form of energy is now coming back into focus. The protagonists of this view are the nuclear power supporters France, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic, with Germany notably staying out of this topic. Worldwide, over 50 reactors are expected to come online in the next few years, and what is needed for that is uranium. Which shares should be in focus now?

Defense Metals, Coinbase, Volkswagen: Critical metals for pioneering technologies

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • crypto
  • AI
  • Electromobility

The demand for critical metals is increasing rapidly worldwide. From growing digitalization to the increased use of cryptocurrencies and AI, from advances in medical technology to electromobility and defense technology - all these areas rely on these critical raw materials. Defense Metals Corporation is an experienced explorer in British Columbia whose Wicheeda project is designed to provide these critical metals. Forward-thinking companies like the crypto exchange Coinbase serve many users who use rare earth metals to power their hard drives for crypto mining. Volkswagen also requires this raw material because car consumers in China have very different needs when it comes to vehicle software than those in the European market. A new CEO for the subsidiary and software company CARIAD knows exactly what needs to be done...

Renk, Hensoldt and Desert Gold: Price gains with armaments and gold

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • armaments

German defense stocks are currently in high demand. Rheinmetall shares have already gained 40% in the current year, while Hensoldt achieved a performance of 35% in the first two months of 2024. The figures for 2023 only dampened the mood briefly. What do analysts say about Hensoldt's share price potential? Stock market newcomer Renk still has to establish itself. But the IPO is beginning to bear fruit. Gold shares should also benefit from the global uncertainties. However, the performance of Barrick & Co. in recent years has been disappointing. Desert Gold could become the surprise stock of the year. According to experts, the explorer was the talk of the town at the recently concluded Mining INDABA trade fair in Cape Town, South Africa.

E-mobility versus combustion engines: Tesla and BYD stumble, Mercedes-Benz and Globex Mining in Vogue!

  • Mining

  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility

The Tesla plant in Brandenburg is discharging polluted wastewater into the canals. Permissible limits for phosphorus and nitrogen are exceeded by up to six times. Elon Musk has not yet reacted to the accusations, as he is busy planning the expansion of his production facility. If the authorities were to take action here, the plant could also be subject to a production stop until the harmful sources are eliminated. Once again, environmental protection and the climate debate clash with the self-interest of foreign producers seemingly not on the radar of existing EU regulations. The water debate is nothing new. Since the plant in Grünheide went into operation, local communities have had to contend with a drop in the groundwater level because the plant draws an impermissible amount of water. For those finding Tesla unsympathetic due to these issues, look for other opportunities in the automotive sector!

Strong price targets! Super Micro Computer, Bayer, Almonty Industries

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • chemicals
  • AI

Is it time to invest in Super Micro now? Yes, say several experts. Despite the massive price rally, the AI share offers further potential. There are good reasons for this, and the target price is USD 1,300. There are also good reasons for the Almonty Industries share to perform well in 2024 and beyond. The Company focuses on tungsten, a scarce and coveted resource in Europe and North America. Sales and profits are expected to rise sharply, leading to a revaluation of the share. Analysts also see significant potential for Bayer shares. The spin-off of over-the-counter medications, including Aspirin, is expected to drive the share. However, there are some question marks.

BYD, Edison Lithium, Nikola - Electromobility continues to advance

The German government's decision to stop the environmental bonus has caused a drastic decline in new registrations of electric cars in Germany. After almost 55,000 battery-powered vehicles in December, the number dropped to 22,500 in the first month of the year. According to ADAC, citing data from the Federal Motor Transport Authority, the percentage share of electric vehicles in total new registrations plummeted from 22.6% to 10.5%. By contrast, the situation outside Germany looks considerably more positive. Around 1,120,000 new registrations were registered in the US in 2023, representing a growth of 54%. China remains by far the largest market, with 6.66 million electric vehicles sold, and the growth curve continues to rise at 24%.

Last week, all eyes were on chip giant Nvidia, which once again surprised Wall Street with a positive performance and a net profit increase of almost 770%. In Germany, Allianz also made headlines with a record profit and a significant dividend increase. In contrast, a report that could significantly impact the future of green technologies, with positive signals for the oil and gas industry, went somewhat unnoticed.

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Renk - Golden times everywhere?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Defense

The world is full of economic uncertainty and geopolitical tensions. These are ideal conditions for gold, which is still considered a safe haven. There are now several factors that point to a sustained upswing in gold prices. One factor is the increased involvement of central banks, which are increasing their reserves to an extent not seen for decades. Another factor is the discussion within the BRICS nations about introducing a new currency backed by gold as a counterweight to the dominant US dollar. Therefore, today, we look at two gold companies and shed light on Renk, a representative of the defense industry, which is also experiencing golden times.

The Canadian company Saturn Oil & Gas has announced its capital and operating budget plans for 2024. The main focus is on sustainable oil and gas production with high capital returns, a structured capital allocation and continuous rapid debt repayment. Plug Power is also gaining momentum and taking strong cost-saving measures to maintain its position at the forefront as a green hydrogen provider. Deutsche Pfandbriefbank (pbb) came under the spotlight last week as investors dumped shares due to its involvement in the US office real estate market. Is this bank a falling knife, or does this week offer a potential entry point? We provide the background.

Top news: BYD, Bayer and Globex Mining

Bayer shocked investors yesterday with the announcement of its dividend cut, which shouldn't have been much of a surprise. The Company is burdened with high debt, endless legal fines, and an empty pharmaceutical pipeline. In an initial reaction, analysts have lowered the share price target. BYD, on the other hand, is doing well operationally. Only the share price is not picking up. Will a share buyback turn the share price around? For those who want to profit from the commodity boom with reduced risk, then Globex Mining's stock is attractive. The news flow is strong, and those who act quickly can still register and follow the live presentation of the mining incubator at the 10th International Investment Forum, IIF, today.
