BASF, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Shares that depend on rare earths

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The Ukraine crisis has shown us how dependent we are on Russian energy imports. The German government now wants to step on the gas pedal even more for renewable energies. The problem is that new technologies such as electric vehicles or wind turbines almost always require rare earths. But rare earths are not only needed there; the defense industry needs these raw materials to optimize steel or as magnets in a wide variety of weapons technologies. But rare earths are also present in the household, in smartphones, notebooks and many other technological devices. Today we take a look at three companies around rare earths.

Turn of the times! Stock winners and losers: Rheinmetall, Ximen Mining, ThyssenKrupp

  • Gold
  • armaments

Disputes surrounding the Ukraine war are taking on various dimensions drawing wide international circles. After China, India's role in the conflict could now also increase. According to reports by Deutsche Welle, there have been lively exchanges between Russia and India in recent weeks. India is seeking a permanent seat on the UN Security Council and has recently begun to buy Russian oil. Cooperation between the two financial systems is also conceivable. That would give Russia access to the capital markets again.

Rheinmetall, Hensoldt, Kleos Space - These stocks have the Ukraine perspective!

  • Space
  • armaments

No one would have thought that the sense of peace and security that Europe has built over the past 75 years could dissolve in just 4 weeks. The war in Ukraine is taking on unimagined traits, with threats between East and West intensifying at what feels like 24-hour intervals. With each verbal attack by Joe Biden, communications become tighter and more threatening. What will our world look like after another 4 weeks? We do not know. At any rate, the capital markets are trying to price in the consequences of the war. They are still relatively optimistic, possibly even too positive, considering the enormous inflationary pushes and the still unclear economic effects. We look at some price outliers in this explosive environment.

Defense Metals, Hensoldt, Rheinmetall - Special boom for the defense industry

  • RareEarths
  • armaments

The war in Ukraine is giving the defense industry more weight. But what is the focus? Defense, deterrence, or war of aggression? The shares of industry representatives have recently benefited significantly from higher defense budgets and orders. What one thinks of this from a moral point of view is another matter. On a more sober note, stronger demand and earnings growth lay the groundwork for higher share prices.

Analysts enthusiastic about S&T, Rheinmetall and Phoenix Copper - TUI share under review

  • Tourism
  • Copper
  • armaments

The shares of S&T and Rheinmetall were among the day's winners yesterday. Austrian IT services provider S&T gave a positive outlook for the current year and fended off Viceroy's short attack. The loss of sales in its Russian business is expected to be partially offset by orders in the armaments and cybersecurity sectors. The guidance from January was raised slightly, and the dividend is also expected to increase. Analysts were pleased and the stock gained more than 10%. Rheinmetall shares benefit from positive analyst recommendations, with the price targets increasing up to EUR 210. In contrast, Jefferies is not convinced by the share of TUI. Phoenix Copper is benefiting from the commodity market. The experts at SISM Research see more than 100% upside potential for the commodity explorer.

K+S, MAS Gold, Hensoldt - Shares around fertilizers, gold and armaments on the upswing

  • Gold
  • armaments

Even in times of crisis, there are always winners. In the case of the Ukraine crisis, these are the fertilizer producers due to the lack of wheat from Russia and Ukraine. With their fertilizers, wheat producers are trying to at least partially meet the excess demand. Gold managed to break out on the upside after the war began and is still considered a safe haven. Last but not least, of course, the defense industry is benefiting from the war drive. Today, we take a look at one company from each sector.

Rheinmetall, Triumph Gold, Siemens Energy - Safe havens despite the crisis?

  • Gold
  • armaments
  • renewableenergies

The Ukraine crisis finally broke the camel's back. Previously, neither the announcement of interest rate hikes nor galloping inflation could move the stock markets to a proper correction. With the beginning of the Russia attack on Ukraine, the indices have lost significant value. Mutual economic embargoes weaken each other, and in the end, the consumer will pay the bill. But as in every crisis, there are winners. Weapons manufacturers are suddenly booming, the price of gold has soared, and renewable energies are being given extra support to ensure independence from Russian energy imports. Today, we look at one company from each of the three sectors.

Rheinmetall, Diamcor, Hensoldt - The scenario escalates

  • Diamonds
  • armaments

All the diplomatic attempts to resolve the situation in Ukraine peacefully have failed. Russia is already in eastern Ukraine with its troops, and the police are reporting fighting throughout the country. In his televised speech launching the war against Ukraine, Russia's President Putin threatens the West with a massive counterstrike. The markets fall into deep red territory. By contrast, the defense industry is benefiting alongside precious metals and oil. Orders should thus continue to rise over the next few years. After the expected sanctions, energy prices are also likely to explode, so there is no end in sight to the inflationary spiral.
