Wirecard 2.0 for AI industry? Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, Desert Gold

It is currently little more than a sequence of events and backgrounds. Nevertheless, the video, published at the end of last week, has great explosive power. Is there a rigged game going on around one of the largest companies in the world? Are greedy hedge fund managers lining their pockets with dubious schemes? And above all, are these events sending us into a disaster compared to which the collapse of Wirecard is a non-event? We assess the situation, provide insights and point out alternatives.

NVIDIA, Defense Metals, Alibaba - Tensions between China and the US are on the rise again

During the BRICS summit, it was announced that six new countries will join the alliance on January 1, 2024. These countries include Saudi Arabia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Egypt, and Ethiopia. This development might not sit well with the United States, as it could threaten the dominance of the US dollar. In addition, there are tensions with China over Taiwan. In July, the Middle Kingdom limited exports of rare earths. China has now added fuel to the fire by banning government officials from using iPhones. Before this, the US restricted exports of NVIDIA's AI chips to the Middle East. Tensions are rising, making it a good time to look at three companies affected by these developments.

Meeting climate goals in conflict: Who benefits from China's raw materials dominance? Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, BYD

  • Mining

  • Electromobility
  • armaments

In the ambitious pursuit to meet climate targets, both political and economic players are taking a risky step. The rapid shift away from fossil fuels in favor of alternative energy sources is leading to a marked increase in the consumption of metallic raw materials that are essential for building renewable and energy-efficient systems. In particular, copper, cobalt, nickel and rare earths, whose imports come mainly from China, are experiencing rising demand. Moreover, with the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine, the defense industry's interest in these resources is intensifying. Producers of critical metals outside of China could emerge as winners in this development.

Attention gold breakout, sell AI stocks? NVIDIA, Globex Mining, and JinkoSolar - these stocks are calling for a party!

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • AI
  • Solar

Artificial intelligence (AI) stocks have recently seen gains of up to 500%. Fund managers worldwide jumped on the new megatrend, but now many investors are wondering what is next! We do not want to deny the revolutionary AI trends; they will dramatically change many things. But do these disruptive trends justify price-turnover ratios of over 40? NVIDIA, the main protagonist, recently managed to increase its market value to over USD 1 trillion. Yet, the Company only achieved sales of USD 26.9 billion in the last fiscal year, with profits falling by as much as 44%. This feels like an exaggeration that is probably not yet widely perceived. We take a deeper look.

Hydrogen losing, oil stocks gaining: Plug Power, Shell and Cashflow Monster Saturn Oil + Gas

  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

Hydrogen is considered the future, but is it too early for pure-play stocks to enter? Companies like Plug Power and Nel are expected to continue posting substantial losses for the foreseeable future. Both are valued in the billions, and both will likely have to carry out a capital increase before they reach break-even. By contrast, oil companies are earning brilliantly. Shell prioritizes margin over revenue, which is winning over analysts. Similarly, Cashflow Monster Saturn Oil & Gas is receiving praise from analysts. Their performance in the second quarter was slightly above analysts' expectations. Will the Canadians soon pay a monster dividend?

Gold rush mood at NVIDIA and Desert Gold - Concrete gold share Vonovia crumbling

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • RealEstate
  • AI

Stock market darling NVIDIA is behaving bullish again after a moderate decline. Over 50% of NVIDIA's buying comes from S&P500 heavyweights like Microsoft, Google and Amazon. All these companies invest heavily in GPUs to develop AI models. The rising importance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the increased use of GPUs in this industry contribute to the increased demand for gold and other commodities used in the manufacture of GPUs. Desert Gold, an exploration and development company in Mali, is benefiting from this trend. Its main project, the SMSZ project, covers 440 sq km and has proven and indicated gold resources of 8.47 million tons with a grade of 1.14 g/t gold. The venerable concrete gold real estate market is currently experiencing severe dislocation. 31% of project development volume in Germany is experiencing delays in residential construction. We look at what investors should do now to protect their portfolios.

Climate revolution hanging by a thread: Siemens Energy, BASF, Manuka Resources

Most people agree that the economy must become climate-neutral. However, despite promising technologies, the path to climate neutrality is not without obstacles. Handelsblatt newspaper now quotes a joint study by three institutes, according to which seven raw materials are needed to master the transformation of the economy. These include graphite, rare earths, nickel, cobalt, iridium, lithium and manganese. The scientific community also recommends that policymakers promote the entire value chains of key technologies. We look at what this means and where investors can look for opportunities.

Changing of the guard in the bull market - Deutsche Bank, TUI and Viva Gold can score!

The valuation on the capital markets has developed quite differently in recent months. The DAX 40 index is currently valued at a P/E ratio of only 12, but this ratio is almost 24 for the growth stocks on the NASDAQ. Some clearly state: "In the DAX, industrial stocks dominate, whereas in the NASDAQ, growth-oriented tech companies prevail." Technology stocks accelerate many times over, even in times of crisis, if the business model fits the times. Nevertheless, they are also subject to interest rate causality, i.e. if refinancing becomes more expensive, the return on equity demanded by investors also increases. In August, the 30-year US bond exceeded the 4.25% yield mark. Historically, this has often signaled a temporary end to the tech bull market. Many second-tier stocks appear to be unjustly neglected. We name three potential beneficiaries of an upward turn in interest rates.

GoviEx, Siemens Energy, Delivery Hero - Which stocks have the greatest growth potential

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Energy
  • renewableenergies
  • Food

Seamless energy supply has become a competitive advantage. France, for example, gets 70% of its electricity from uranium. With an outstanding uranium recovery rate of 88% in Zambia, GoviEx supplies the world with this valuable energy source. The Company focuses on the exploration and development of uranium deposits in Africa. Renewables, however, are not quite taking off for them. Siemens Energy is facing significant cost problems in its onshore wind turbine business. Damages to rotor blades and bearings could cost the Company up to EUR 4.5 billion. People always need to eat. Those who prefer ordering food in light of high electricity costs should look at Delivery Hero. Citigroup seems to have better information on the delivery service than current investor sentiment suggests.

BRICS Realigns: Gold, Silver and Bitcoin in Turnaround! Is this the starting signal for TUI, Desert Gold and Adyen?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bitcoin

The acronym BRIC was coined in 2001 by Jim O'Neill, the Chief Economist of the major bank Goldman Sachs. The now frequently used acronym represents the initial letters of the countries Brazil, Russia, India, and China. At the time, it referred to the four fastest-growing emerging economies outside the Western industrial community G7; later, South Africa was added as the "S". At the August meeting of the BRICS countries in South Africa, a further 40 countries registered their interest in joining, 6 of which were admitted directly by January 2024. Thus, a strong community of states is emerging, covering a full 30% of the world's GDP and 46% of the global population. They all share a common goal: to reduce dependence on the US and the US dollar - thereby lessening Western influence. There are even long-term considerations of a shared currency. A wake-up call for Gold, Silver, and Bitcoin.
