TeamViewer, Silver Viper, Nordex: Please board - the train is departing!

Uncertainty and high volatility! After months of upswing on the capital markets, an uneasy feeling is setting in among investors due to some imponderables in China. The coefficient of fluctuation, expressed by the VDAX and VIX, skyrocketed from values around 17 to 25 early this week. It does not mean much for ordinary investors, but the cost of hedging increases for institutional investors, and those who want to lower the risk a bit have to adjust the investment ratio accordingly. All this is still happening in a relatively stable environment because those who want to get out can still sell at good prices. Where should one look closely now?

TeamViewer - Entry into the education market gives hope

The online service provider TeamViewer is making its way through challenging terrain. In the middle of the year, the Company surprised with new marketing ideas and was promptly punished by the stock market. The reason: Excessively high costs are increasingly worsening the margin situation. The share broke through the 50, then the 40 and finally also the EUR 30 mark. Yesterday, the share reached a new low for the year of EUR 25.8 - what can be expected here in the medium term?

To expand the product portfolio, the Company now also offers a solution for online teaching. The product goes by "TeamViewer Classroom" and is a fully data-protection-compliant solution that does not use third-party providers. The aim is to meet all data protection requirements of the Ministries of Education and comparable authorities in other European countries from the outset. During the pandemic, many schools in Germany had been using solutions from US providers such as Microsoft, Zoom, and Google for their online classes, even though several data protection officers expressed massive concerns. TeamViewer's new platform is a good match for the US providers because the content is available on German servers and data centers. That means that everything runs according to European DSGVO guidelines.

At the beginning of the Corona Crisis, TeamViewer benefited from strong special demand for home office solutions. Since then, the Company has invested a lot of money in growth, but this has put pressure on net profit. Chart-wise, the share price is now at the level of March 2020. In the hope of an approaching turnaround, one should, in our opinion, build up stocks here, as the potential is huge for years to come.

Silver Viper Minerals - Precious metals from Mexico

Times of uncertainty play into the cards of precious metals because no investor wants high volatility in his portfolio. Stabilizers here are usually the gold and silver stocks because they are not dependent on the current economic cycle. On the contrary, they provide necessary confidence in cases of upheavals or political shock waves. After all, whatever happens to the major monetary systems, gold and silver (including platinum) have historically shown themselves to be value-preserving assets in most shaky market periods.

Silver Viper Minerals' gold-silver project is located in Mexico, specifically in northern Sonora, the leading gold-producing state. The "La Virginia" property operated there had previously belonged to Pan American Silver. The management of Silver Viper had a suitable offer ready near the lowest silver spot prices and bought the asset equipped with good historical drilling. The junior explorer, managed by Belcarra Group, currently operates a property of 6,880 hectares, with drilling for 2021 fully funded.

Currently, the Company is focusing on exploration in the "El Rubi Zone", which suggests high mineralization based on preliminary sampling. The potential of the entire property is estimated at resources of about 400,000 ounces of gold and 19.5 million ounces of silver, which would be an industrially recoverable scale. We will see what the results deliver in the end.

With the current correction in the silver price to around USD 21.50, producers and explorers are coming under some pressure. However, Silver Viper can maintain CAD 0.47 and is also excellently positioned in the market segment.

Nordex - New momentum from politics

The so-called green stocks should see an easing after the German elections. After all, the preliminary election results point to a prosperous future. After all, the expansion of alternative energies is likely to peak under Green-Red leadership, which should primarily benefit a wind turbine project developer such as Nordex.

However, Nordex has been struggling with considerable margin problems for months. Given the global turmoil on the commodity markets and the heavily strained supply chains, one challenge is managing the current orders volume without delays. In some cases, Nordex's customers have to push their project plans forward by months because key components are still not available. As a result, sales are being prevented, and new business is being depressed.

Following its major capital increase in the summer, Nordex AG has not yet delivered any share price performance in 2021. Before the financing round, the share price stood at over EUR 20, but the share has now been hovering around the EUR 15 mark for weeks. However, long-term investors cannot complain because the share price is still over 50% in the green on an annual basis and has tripled since the Corona lows in March 2020. Keep watching!

In highly volatile stock market times, investors look for stability. TeamViewer and Nordex always provide good entry prices for a turnaround in stormy times. Silver Viper is an explorer that can adjust its issues to current conditions. When silver turns, you are in a prime position here.

JinkoSolar, Silver Viper, Volkswagen: The time is ripe

  • Silver

Observers call silver the precious metal of the energy transition. Why? Silver is in solar plants, sensors for wind turbines, electric cars and infrastructure for 5G. The latter mobile communications standard is needed to make many devices smart and is thus also a mosaic of the energy transition. We present three stocks that are directly or indirectly related to silver.

Steinhoff, Silver Viper, BYD - Buy when the guns are thundering!

  • Silver

Right now, it is not an easy time for silver fans. After Reddit traders joined forces at the beginning of the year and shot the precious metal not "to the moon", but at least to a high of USD 30.06 per ounce, a sharp correction started, which has led to around USD 22 as of today. Technically, there is still room to go down. Still, from a fundamental perspective, silver is a clear long-term buy because the white metal can support in crisis and is also crucial for producing renewable energy.

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, Millennial Lithium - Rally Ahead?

  • Silver

A rally in silver was already predicted at the end of last year. The reason was the corona-related 5.9% drop in production. It is the most significant decline in over 10 years, and thus there was a shortfall in supply. In addition, there is strong physical demand, which you can see well on Reddit if you search for "Silverbugs". There, people proudly present their hoarded silver stocks. Since the panic selling at the beginning of August, the price has already risen by 11%. High inflation could give the silver price a further boost. For lithium, on the other hand, the rally is already in full swing. The lithium carbonate price has more than doubled since the beginning of the year. We analyze three companies from these sectors today.
