Commodity prices 2021 – are commodities ETFs worth it?
Commodities are among the most important materials in our everyday lives. Products are made from them, for example, or they serve as energy carriers. Raw materials such as copper, palladium or nickel play an important role, especially in the electric motor and electric drive segment. Anyone thinking of solar energy is very well positioned with silicon. The demand for many commodities has developed strongly in the 2010s and 2020s. This means thatsignificantly more raw materials are now being bought and used than was the case in previous years. The type of raw materials used has also changed. 20 years ago, for example, copper was significantly cheaper and less expensive than this material is today. The price of oil has taken on a special development in 2020.
Due to the corona pandemic, it was the first time in history that the oil price developed negatively. In April 2020, the oil price was so low (current oil price development) as it has never been before. The price per barrel was sometimes between minus 10 and minus 25 US dollars - a historically favorable time to buy commodities of this type. At the same time, the shares of the large oil companies were also listed at comparatively low prices.The oil price saw very positive developments in 2021 from the perspective of investors and sellers. Due to funding limitations and a simultaneous increase in demand from industry, end customers and consumers, sales increased. Ultimately, the companies benefit from this and the prices of the shares have climbed sharply. A BP share that could be bought in the middle of the crisis at a price of around EUR 2.20 to 2.60 is currently trading on the market for around EUR 3.40 to 3.60. This development can also be observed in the papers of Exxon Mobile or, for example, Lukoil. Higher prices, higher demand and many other circumstances contribute to the fact that commodities generate more sales and companies' profits increase again.
For the coming decades, attention should not only be paid to the price of oil, but also, for example, to raw materials that are necessary for electromobility. Anyone who invests properly here at the right time can definitely have a good hand and select high-quality corporations. The companies that are not only dependent on oil, but also includeother energy sources (eg solar or wind) in their portfolio, could definitely have good ones in the next 50 to 100 years carry out developments.
Anyone who does not necessarily want to invest in raw materials, but is looking for a secure and attractive basis, should think about things that are consumed by mankind and that can also play an important role in the future. Tobacco or tobacco products could be one of them, but they don't have to be. According to many investors, tobacco is a phase-out model. This applies above all to the western world - but does not have to apply to all regions worldwide. The consumption of tobacco products has been greatly reduced over the past 50 years. Nevertheless, the tobacco companies manage to increase their profits significantly and also to involve the shareholders.Imperial Brands is one of the companies that has paid attractive dividends for a period of more than 20 years.To reduce debt, the 2020 dividend was significantly reduced by a third. However, an increase in the distribution is to be expected in the coming years. The yield from the dividend is currently around 9%. Dividends should also increase in the coming years if the company can continue to grow its sales.
Classic cigarettes are still consumed very heavily worldwide. However, consumption is declining sharply in many countries. Only Africa is sometimes seen as a growth market for many tobacco companies. In Europe and North America, the figures are generally developing negatively. In Asia, on the other hand, the market for smokers is traditionally very strong.Japan Tobacco or the Chinese tobacco companies, which are state-owned, achieve high sales. Alternative products such as tobacco heaters or evaporators contribute to the fact that profit margins can also be high in the future. Numerous companies and competitors of Imperial Brands rely on other tobacco products, which of course cannot be easily identified in a highly competitive market.
In addition, people's health awareness has changed significantly. Many young people do not start smoking and many older people make the jump. Many smokers also develop cancer, which means that the number of users is falling significantly. In general, however, the corporations manage to increase their profits significantly, for example through price increases, and still achieveattractive returns. How long this game will continue and how the new products will develop on the market is currently still completely open.

Corona 2021 – vaccinations and the stock market!
There is no question that vaccinations can have an impact on the stock market. The vaccination rate is particularly high in Great Britain. At the same time, the prices of numerous securities have been rising for several weeks. Shares in bus companies are almost twice as high as they were in the middle of the crisis. Thetravel industry is still in the middle of the crisis and many companies are fighting for their own survival. Nevertheless, there are first signs of improvement. Many people working in the travel industry are getting hopeful that some kind of normality will return in 1-2 years. With increasing vaccinations, everyday life will return and the prices of many companies will rise. The travel industry should definitely benefit, but it may be a few months to years before full normality is restored.
