Change of favorites 2019
Fewer diesel cars, more petrol cars - palladium is mainly used for the catalytic converter. Demand is therefore rising. This in turn meets with a chronically insufficient supply. That was the breeding ground to leave the other metals behind. Palladium was therefore the metal of 2018.
High demand from infrastructure projects and electromobility meets reduced inventory levels and difficulties in expanding supply. This could stand for the 2019 success story - that of copper. In fact, major projects are underway in emerging markets such as China and India, as well as in Africa, for example in the electrification of national economies and in logistics. Wherever electricity is involved, copper cannot be missing as an inexpensive conductor material. Demand will rise. All the more so as Europe and the USA are also likely to push stimulus programmes against the dangers of a recession.
On the other hand, potential production is repeatedly lost due to labour disputes between the workers in the large copper mines. Moreover, too few large new copper projects are being developed. Actually this mixture should support the today's favourable copper price in the near future. Copper could therefore already become a positive surprise in 2019. In turn, the shares of companies with copper projects would benefit strongly from this. For them, financing would be easier and the discounted intrinsic value would rise significantly.
Companies with interesting copper projects include Copper Mountain Mining and Aurania Resources. Copper Mountain Mining produces approximately 90 million pounds of copper equivalent per year at its 75 percent owned Copper Mountain Mine in British Columbia - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298604. The already approved Eva Copper project in Australia is 100% owned by Copper Mining and will produce an estimated 100 million pounds of copper equivalent annually.
Aurania Resources - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298721- searches Ecuador for copper and precious metals. Recent sampling has shown copper contents of four to seven percent. The Lost Cities Project is a combination of modern exploration and professional historical research.
