Last generation upswing 2023? TUI, Lufthansa, Alerio Gold, Aurelius - opportunities upon opportunities!

  • Mining

The year 2023 has shown its friendly side in the first weeks. Despite highs in the indices, however, there is light and shade. For example, the Association for Consumer Research (ACR) recently found in a survey that consumers in Germany are entering the new year with significantly more confidence in economic development. This means that the ACR consumer climate index has risen for the fourth time in succession. The propensity to buy things nevertheless remains at a very low level. The new purchases indicator thus fell by 2.4 points to minus 18.7 points. Uncertainty in the face of crises and inflation remains very pronounced, with many households expecting significantly higher heating bills in the coming months. Many are putting money aside for this, which is now not being used for other expenses. However, shares are being bought, and we give a few examples.

The best cards for 2023: Amazon, Aspermont, flatexDEGIRO, TUI - Which stock will take off?

  • Investments
  • Fintech
  • Travel

Crisis, crisis, crisis - we do not want to hear any more about it at Christmas time. After the relief rally, the stock markets have gone back to sleep. It was turbulent until September, and then the correction was over for the time being. But how much "good" is already priced in for next year? Will there be a quick end to the war, can the inflation rate also fall, and what will interest rates do in 2023? Many unanswered questions that will likely only be answered gradually. The shares have to achieve a fair valuation from this mixed situation - perhaps that is why the correction is not quite over yet. Where are the best opportunities for investors?

The big catch-up - China Big Tech: Alibaba, Deutsche Bank, TUI and Desert Gold turn up the heat!

Investors increasingly look at the big losers in heavily sold markets because the size of the markdowns identifies potential for the future. Often shares fall because of the general market weakness, but sometimes the operating business also weighs heavy. At the end of the year, there is also "tax-loss selling", especially in North America. We look at some stocks that have suffered significant losses but could now take off again.

Study shows how young people consume - TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Amazon

Back in the 1980s, sunburn, cheese hedgehogs and bocce ball on the beach were simply part of the package for vacationers. Today, a vacation can be a bit more than that. Individual experiences and new cultures are in demand. As a study by the payment provider Klarna shows, young people, in particular, save significantly more than older generations in relation to their income. The most common savings goals are vacations, housing and pensions. Reason enough to take a closer look at some consumer stocks and their prospects.

Pathfinder Ventures, TUI, Meta - What is worth investing in now

  • Camping
  • RV
  • Travel

The prices of tech stocks such as Meta, Alphabet and even Microsoft fall during periods of high-interest rates. The US Federal Reserve has strengthened the dollar, but exchange rate fees for internationally positioned companies are hurting profits. One complimentary to tech is the Canadian company Pathfinder Ventures. It operates state-of-the-art camping resorts in beautiful Canada and has seen a 47% increase in bookings for winter vacations. The 47% occupancy rate also represents a 9% increase over last year. Far from the buzzing server rooms and flickering office ceiling lights, families can relax in the great outdoors without sacrificing WiFi and other modern conveniences. Camping is the ideal alternative to package tour companies like TUI AG. The latter is currently cleaning up its board because the aftermath of the Corona pandemic is still ongoing.

Shock inflation, what is left in the wallet in 2023: TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank

In addition to an inflation rate of almost 10%, the first increases in utility costs are now fluttering into citizens' mailboxes. As already feared, the extreme increase in the cost of energy and electricity is putting a heavy strain on monthly budgets. Whether there can still be a vacation in 2023 will be decided by the length of the Russia conflict, which has kept fossil energy prices high so far. As investors can easily see, the high oil and gas prices are contributing to negative effects in almost all sectors; especially in winter, the supply situation in Central Europe is likely to be very tight. Which stocks should investors watch out for now?

Up and away! Lufthansa, TUI, Viva Gold, Aston Martin - Turnaround stocks take off!

The warlike activities in Ukraine now seem to be entering a critical phase. It appears that the resistance forces have been able to wrest important sections of land from the Russian aggressor. While we should not dream of a quick end to the war, a spark of hope remains. With inflation data remaining high, investors are predominantly looking for stability. Wildly fluctuating stock and crypto prices have become daily companions, and even real estate markets are no longer immune to corrections in the face of rising interest rates and skyrocketing construction costs. Thus, the focus is on stocks that have already endured a long period of suffering.

Sellout completely exaggerated! Lufthansa, TUI, MAS Gold - Shares, 100 times cheaper than Plug Power!

Rising commodity prices have recently pushed inflation in Europe above 8% and caused equities worldwide to fall into sellout mode. With ongoing geo-conflicts, economic forecasts for global growth are now becoming even gloomier. The travel market is suffering from high prices and ongoing staffing shortages. A war-torn environment is also not really an appetizer for exciting long-haul travel. Hopes are therefore pinned on a near end to the war in Ukraine and subsequent normalization of our daily lives. Which stocks could then benefit very quickly?

All investors have probably experienced this phenomenon at some point or another: Operationally and fundamentally, companies are making really good progress. But the share price does not get going. We explain whether this is a warning signal and how investors can deal with such a situation. Today we look at the travel group TUI, which currently has little travel fever priced in, the steel group ThyssenKrupp, which is suffering from the energy crisis, and Barsele Minerals, where a valuable gold project is not yet putting its horsepower on the road.
