Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, Lynas - Time is running out!

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

Heavy weapons for peace. Tanks, submarines and fighter jets for Ukraine, whatever the cost. This scenario is the bitter reality right now and is being promoted across the board by Western politicians. It may not sound very understandable, but in order to guarantee peace, the world continues to arm itself. Companies in the armaments industry, now declared to be sustainable investment opportunities, are booming. With the seething conflict in Taiwan, tensions are again on the rise. With its raw materials, such as rare earth metals, China has the power to act. The West is frantically trying to reduce dependencies, which is impossible to achieve in the short term.

Almonty Industries, ThyssenKrupp, Volkswagen - Tungsten: The raw material for high-tech applications!

  • Mining

  • Electromobility

Tungsten is a rare and valuable metal with a high melting point, hardness, corrosion resistance and good electrical and thermal conductivity. It is widely used in industry, national defence and high-tech applications. An important use of tungsten is in alloys, especially steel, where it increases the melting point, hardness and wear resistance. Now applications could be expanded even further. Researchers have developed a cathode material made from a molybdenum tungsten niobate alloy that can be used to charge electric cars in minutes.

Shares ready for takeoff: Nel, Plug Power, BASF, Almonty Industries

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Hydrogen

The New Year rally is on! The Nel share has gained around 20% since New Year's Eve. There was a tailwind from Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck, including a major order from Germany. Analysts see further upside potential. This also applies to BASF. A US analyst sees an opportunity for a good 30% price gain for the chemical giant. BASF should benefit from the current sharp decline in gas prices. The agricultural boom is also playing into the DAX company's hands. Almonty Industries wants to benefit even more from the boom in electric mobility in the future. To this end, the Group intends to become one of the leading tungsten producers. The mega-mine in South Korea is scheduled to go into operation in the current year, 2023. Financing by the German KfW has been secured, and analysts see a share price potential of over 100%.

E-mobility - Tesla in crisis! BYD, Almonty Industries, Mercedes, Porsche - Who is the best performer in 2023?

  • Mining

  • Electromobility

The year 2022 ended with a sell-out at Tesla. Not that the shelves for Tesla vehicles were ransacked - no - the Elon Musk share advanced to the negative leader in the car performance list with a 70% loss. First, there was the egocentric's Twitter takeover, which could only be contested by sales in Tesla shares. Then many funds followed the downward trend, selling heavily until just before Christmas. The news of the construction of a Tesla infrastructure in Turkey helped the stock to a quick revival at the beginning of the year. But who has the best cards among automotive stocks in 2023?

FuelCell Energy, Almonty Industries, SFC Energy - Fatal effects

Even now, commodity prices, which have risen exorbitantly in recent years, are correcting due to fears of a prolonged recession. In the long term, the super-cycles in critical raw materials needed for the energy transition and innovative technologies will likely continue. That is because there is already a threat of supply bottlenecks for the required industrial metals. For investors, this scenario offers a unique opportunity.

Almonty Industries, Rheinmetall, Apple - Asia and Africa push business

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Defense

Almonty Industries is creating the first underground LTE security network for mine workers and production equipment in cooperation with Korea Telecom. The technology will enable work at the Sangdong Mine to proceed more safely and quickly. Tungsten is used in smartphones and other applications. As one of the largest smartphone producers, Apple is expanding its business in India. 5% of iPhone production is to be handled from there. This is a consequence of the lockdown experience with China. Armaments giant Rheinmetall, on the other hand, is enjoying an order from South Africa.

Debacle for e-mobility? BYD, Varta, Almonty Industries, Nordex - Farewell from the Qatar desert!

The German national soccer team has experienced its next World Cup debacle and attracted even fewer interested people to their TV sets than during the first World Cup elimination 4 years ago. Even during the third-round preliminary match, TV figures remained comparatively low. The DFB women thus retain the viewer record in 2023, which is nice. E-mobility could also suffer a significant setback in 2023 because if electricity prices continue to rise and availability falls, charging stations could have to be taken off the grid. According to the ADAC, Switzerland is planning a speed limit of 100 and driving bans on non-essential private trips with e-mobiles to prevent the risk of blackouts. The decision will be made in the National Council on December 12. But the stock market is still betting on Tesla & Co - who are the profiteers?

Almonty Industries, ThyssenKrupp, Varta - Earning from growing tungsten demand

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • renewableenergies

In 2021, 79,000 metric tons of tungsten were mined worldwide from existing mines. In 2015, production was still 89,400 tons. One might think that demand has declined and production has been cut back, but the opposite is true. According to the British Geological Survey report, demand will increase between 3% and 7% per year and will soon exceed available supply. But now, demand could increase significantly in the short term because US Department of Energy DOE researchers have found a way to charge electric cars in 15 minutes. This involves using a molybdenum tungsten niobate alloy as the cathode material instead of graphite. So we take a look at three companies around tungsten.

Batteries: The new premium class - BYD, Almonty Industries, Varta

When it comes to everyday products, we all have clear ideas about prices. For a long time, the EUR 2 mark, for example, was considered an average price for a piece of butter. But as soon as it becomes more expensive, it is worth a headline in a newspaper with big letters. It is a different story with cars or other high-quality products. Thanks to high-quality workmanship and technology, customers are willing to pay more than the actual market prices. In economics, the difference between the high price and the market price is called producer surplus. We present three companies that want to skim off this producer surplus.
