Nordex, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Critical situation

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • armaments

Due to geopolitical tensions and the ongoing trade war between the US and China, the supply of critical raw materials is on high alert. Especially for the energy transition and the achievement of climate targets, materials that mostly have to be exported from the largest Asian economy are needed. Now, with the Minerals Security Partnership, MSP, an alliance of Western countries has been founded to establish a complete value chain within the partner countries. As a result, mining, processing and recycling projects from Western countries will be the primary beneficiaries in the coming years.

High-tech bottleneck: Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, JinkoSolar, Nordex: Strategic metals are more necessary than ever!

  • armaments
  • Technology
  • RareEarths

In addition to the increased risks for the energy supply with primary energy sources, there is also a growing shortage of strategic metals in the industry. These metals are needed in almost all high-tech applications and are difficult to obtain on the world market. The problem is that the leading producer, China, could turn to Russia at any time and slam the door on the West in terms of supply. Without these metals, however, many essential components would no longer be able to be produced. Some tech stocks have already reflected the difficult procurement situation in their share prices. What are the current opportunities and risks?

SPD's Klingbeil: Germany as a "leading power" - Rheinmetall, Kleos Space, Airbus

  • Space
  • Defense
  • armaments

Armaments were long considered the "grubby child" of the capital market. The trend toward ESG-compliant investments ensured that the defense industry was excluded from many investment instruments from the outset. But then came February 24 with all its consequences. In the meantime, even SPD party leader Lars Klingbeil has come out in favour of Germany assuming the role of a "leading power" in military and diplomatic matters. Although the connection between "leadership ordered" and "leadership received" in Germany under Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz is not so clear so far, the political mills grind slowly, as is well known - especially in Germany. It is a good thing that rearmament is an international trend - at least for investors. We take a look at three stocks.

But the business is going, insiders are buying shares, and analysts advise to buy.

Rheinmetall and BYD with new partners and Triumph Gold facing long-term buy signal

The stock markets are nervous due to the continuing unresolved geopolitical problems. The mood fluctuates between optimism and pessimism, and a clear trend is not discernible. Apart from the Ukraine war, the predominant issue is how to contain the sharp rise in inflation without stifling economic growth. When considering the current statistics, further interest rate hikes are poison for the stock markets. In contrast, the traffic lights for precious metals have been fundamentally green for a long time, but the prices of gold and silver are trending south.

Rheinmetall, Thyssen, Defense Metals, Airbus: Fighting the war with these blockbuster shares

  • Defense
  • armaments
  • RareEarths

The German government has reaffirmed the need for a powerful army and anchored the 100 billion euro special fund in the constitution before the Whitsun recess. The reason why the Basic Law had to be used for this was supposedly due to the budget issue because the red and green members of the government, in particular, do not want the general budget to be diminished by defense spending. Now it is here again, the reversal of the "peace dividend"; for many years, Germany in particular was able to profit from the reduction in defense spending. NATO welcomes the German decisions and now sees Germany as a paying "full partner" again. This also finally puts to rest Trump's demand for Berlin to contribute more to NATO peacekeeping costs. Where are the opportunities for investors now?

ThyssenKrupp, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Defense stocks as portfolio boosters?

  • armaments
  • Defense

The Ukraine crisis has been with us for over three months now. While many stocks went downhill at the beginning of the war, the situation was quite different for defense stocks. Here the quotations increased sometimes significantly. Of course, every investor has to clarify the moral question for himself. But if you want to invest your money in defense stocks, a few points speak in favor of an investment. On the one hand, there is the trend toward more defense spending, which has continued year after year since 2014. Second, confidence in Russia has been permanently shaken, and it will take years, if not decades, to repair the damage. We look at three companies that manufacture products for the defense industry.

Defense Metals, ThyssenKrupp, Allkem - Raw materials for armaments

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

Times of war have their own dynamics. Many sectors of the economy suffer from the uncertainties it brings. However, one sector can confidently be called a war winner because, without defense equipment, there is no war. The supplier industries are also among the profiteers, provided demand does not collapse elsewhere to a greater extent. In addition, the defense industry is increasingly being classified as sustainable, which opens up access to previously closed ESG portfolios.

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, MP Materials - Until the next bubble bursts

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

In every crisis there are winners and losers. Due to the numerous lockdowns of the past two years, shares such as Netflix, Delivery Hero and Peloton, in addition to vaccine manufacturers such as BioNTech and Moderna, are the winners. However, since Russia invaded Ukraine, defense shares, which were recently classified as "socially harmful", have become the new stars in the stock market sky. The call for rearmament by several countries is creating enormous valuation bubbles that are likely to burst again in the near future.

Rheinmetall, thyssenkrupp, Defense Metals: The scarce metals matter!

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

Some companies have been in the international spotlight since the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis. This is primarily because they are seen as having an important role in resolving and ending the armed conflict. It is generally assumed that the Ukrainian people can only free themselves from Russia's grip with international support. Thus, it is perfectly legitimate to make investments where no need has been seen in recent years. The peace dividend that has been withheld for years is likely now coming back into circulation - the Ministry of Defense is now rearming after years of consolidation! Who can profit from these orders?
