What does the future look like in German inner cities? If we take a survey of Hamburg residents as a blueprint, a lot will likely change in our cities very soon. Hamburgers would prefer to see their city centers car-free and promote electromobility even more strongly. So far, it is primarily city dwellers who are leaning toward the future. But as soon as e-cars paired with autonomous driving bring the surrounding areas closer to the centers, rural residents are also likely to renounce their diesel quickly. Don't believe it? Then let us convince you and find out how you can invest in tomorrow's trends today.

    Varta is visionary on the road

    Electric cars are cleaner and quieter than classic combustion engines, measured in terms of their direct pollutant emissions. What is more, the new generation cars are rolling computers. Some models, such as those from Tesla, are also already going quite far in autonomous driving. Imagine this technology advancing even further and regenerative energy sources being sufficient in the distant future to power these self-driving automobiles: The cost of mobility would drop significantly. Autonomously driving vehicle fleets could compensate for the poor infrastructure in rural areas and take people to the doctor or other appointments in the city. Always with them in the trunk: shipments of goods. Even if such visions sound like dreams of the future, a Tesla equipped with cameras around the vehicle shows that such services are certainly possible.

    When the car has become an indispensable multitool, just like the smartphone once was, even die-hard horsepower pros will not shed a tear for the good old combustion engine. After all, it is always more convenient to be driven than to drive yourself. The German battery manufacturer Varta has recognized that electromobility is a groundbreaking development, the end of which no one can foresee today. That is precisely why it is worth being part of it, Varta thinks, and the Company wants to take off with batteries in the next few months. The past year's hype did not exactly benefit the share - the advance praise paralyzed the value, which today is increasingly measured against the actual situation. It is characterized by falling sales and better earnings. The air is out at Varta - electromobility or not.

    Nevada Copper: Roller coaster to happiness?

    What Varta was a few months ago, the Nevada Copper share is today - a plaything for traders and always good for quick percentages - in every direction. To navigate around the stock, investors need to consider the overall situation. Nevada Copper has morphed in recent years from a copper explorer to a producer that aims to extract 5,000 tons of copper ore per day. In addition to an underground mine, the project includes an open-pit mine that will later be brought into production. Numerous delays and expiring credit lines have put the share under pressure in recent weeks. Most recently, the Company again raised fresh capital to further develop the mine in the US state of Nevada, where numerous automakers are pushing ahead with their e-car plans.

    Due to high demand for financing, Nevada Copper increased the total volume to USD 114 million from the initially envisioned USD 75 million. The accompanying dilution of old shareholdings recently put the share price under pressure. The stock, which underwent a 10:1 reverse split a few months ago, is currently trading near historic lows. Given the high financing volume and the extended credit lines, the stock should now settle down and be able to play to its strengths again in the medium term. Nevada Copper is a cyclical stock where timing is the difference between weal and woe. Meanwhile, fundamentally, things look good: The three analysts in Canada who cover the stock see a 12-month price target of CAD 1.75 - the stock is currently trading at around CAD 0.76.

    BYD: Well positioned for the future

    The fact that copper is likely to benefit from electromobility and construction and infrastructure projects is supported by the rising sales figures of companies such as BYD. In recent months, the Chinese have gained market share because they have had fewer delivery problems than the competition, thanks to their chip production. And this is backed up by steadily rising sales figures. In the medium and long term, the chip and battery divisions should end up on the stock market and thus release further potential at BYD. In recent months, China's worries weighed on the stock, but things are now looking friendlier again - the value has been showing a steep upward trend since the middle of the year.

    While BYD can boast an intact trend, the situation is quite different for Varta and Nevada Copper. While the German battery pioneer has to prove its ambitious plans, most of the hurdles at Nevada Copper should have been cleared by now. The share is a hot potato, but the fundamental situation around copper remains promising. The same applies to Nevada Copper's Pumpkin Hollow project in the heart of the e-car state of Nevada.

    Climate Crisis: Copper is the new oil! BYD, Orestone Mining, Ford, Nio - 100% acceleration in Greentech

    At the beginning of May, analysts at Bank of America declared a new "super cycle" for basic and raw materials. What they mean by this is that a whole series of important materials will be in great short supply for years. The prime example is the red metal copper. The price of the industrial metal has almost doubled in the past 12 months. It is currently quoted at around USD 8,350 per tonne, not far from the historic high of USD 10,750. During the pandemic, the metal briefly fell to USD 4,500. Currently, however, forecasts are once again pointing upwards. Bank of America expects the price to more than double again to around USD 18,000 in the next three years. We take a look at some hot stocks.

    ThyssenKrupp, Orestone Mining, Nevada Copper - Optimistic about the future

    • Mining
    • Copper

    • Silver

    Overall, copper is an indispensable part of the green transformation due to its excellent electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and reliability. It enables the efficient use of renewable energies, promotes electromobility and supports sustainable infrastructure development. Due to recession fears, the base price corrected strongly in recent months. In the long term, copper should make a renewed attempt to reach new highs due to high demand and too little supply.

    Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank - What happens after the US debt ceiling is lifted?

    In the US, the Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a compromise in the debt dispute. This means that the US can take out more loans, which will ultimately result in an increasing money supply. This could further fuel inflation, while on the other hand, it could boost the gold price. In recent months, the gold price has soared due to the turbulence in the banking sector and was able to mark a new high. Nevertheless, this is remarkable because the FED had raised interest rates significantly, which would typically have tended to argue for a falling gold price. If interest rates do not rise further or even fall, this would be another positive signal for gold. We, therefore, look at 2 gold companies and analyze Deutsche Bank.
