The start of the week in Germany has been mixed. At 15,937 points, the German benchmark index DAX is almost unchanged from the close of trading last Friday. No impulses are expected from the U.S. today, as the stock market there remains closed for the holiday. The MDAX last traded at 34,667 points (+0.24%), TecDAX at 3,563 points (+0.53%) and SDAX at 15,872 points with 0.07% in the red. Detached from the indices, investors have special opportunities today in individual stocks.

    Bet on a reverse movement?

    Unilever is one of the heavyweights on the stock exchange and, with 4,900 executed orders, is at the top of the most traded shares on Tradegate. The share is currently trading at EUR 44.055, down 6.56%. Those who bet on falling prices at the beginning of that trade were able to achieve a good performance, as the share starts the day at EUR 47.20. The share of BioNTech is also lighter today and was last quoted EUR 169.30 about 1.5% in the red. With over 4,000 executions, the stock ranks second most active company on Tradegate today.

    More than one million ounces of gold creates stability

    Canadian gold company Desert Gold Ventures surprised the market today with a positive announcement. The company has identified deposits of approximately 1.07 million ounces of gold on its lands in previous exploration and drilling programs - split into Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources of 310,300 ounces and Inferred Mineral Resources of 769,200 ounces of Gold.

    Desert Gold’s President & CEO Jared Scharf commented, “The publication of this initial Mineral Resource is a significant milestone for the Company and represents a great starting point. We believe, that with more drilling, the Company will be able to significantly expand on these resources and develop new resource areas like the Gourbassi North West discovery. We expect a busy 2022 as we work towards a 20,000 metre plus drill program with high expectations of the results.”

    Desert Gold's shares are up 3.96% to EUR 0.1025. The market capitalization is currently EUR 15 million, hard to imagine that the valuation will remain so low permanently.

    Time for bargain hunters? Plug Power, Varta and Pathfinder Ventures

    • Investments
    • Camping
    • RV
    • Electromobility

    Growth stocks are currently under particular pressure. But this can also create opportunities for bargain hunters. Perhaps in the case of Varta? The share has crashed sharply after a profit warning. Now, the first analyst has upgraded the share from "sell" to "buy". But even his reasoning does not sound like a new growth story. Plug Power also tends to live on the hope of growth. While the new production facility is technically a milestone, it needs more. In contrast, things are going well at Pathfinder Ventures. The still unknown tourism company is profiting from the camping boom in North America, and its valuation is anything but expensive.

    The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.

    The energy crisis is pushing utilities to the brink, the election victory of the radical right-wing party Fratelli d'Italia is putting a strain on the EU - and what are banks doing in this context? Weeks ago, Germany's top banking supervisor Raimund Rösler warned that the rapid turnaround in interest rates could also overburden some institutions. We look at banks, gas traders and a possible laughing third party.
