Learning from the Stock Market Sages

What do stock market legends like Warren Buffett and Marc Faber do right? For their secret to success, there are four frequently cited principles:

  • Buy only what you understand!
  • Think long-term, trade less frequently!
  • Buy cheap and sell at a profit!
  • Avoid buying anything that can be easily destroyed by careless management mistakes!

Especially in times of increased dependence on raw materials, the products of Noble BC perfectly align with these requirements. But which elements are currently trending? Which ones will be in demand in the future? Where will the gap between supply and demand be difficult to close? And for which elements will production costs rise, as it becomes more challenging to extract them?

The experts at Noble BC provide answers to these questions. They provide their customers with daily updates from the fields of science and technology. Learn more about the individual metals, their properties, and their uses!

Progress Drives Demand

Throughout history, epochs have been named after specific metals. We all know about the Copper Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age. These names originate from new metal processing techniques that led to more efficient tools.

Could we be living in the Indium or Germanium Age today?

Critical metals determine the speed at which the expansion of the 5G network takes place. The availability of rare earths will determine if it will be possible to produce climate-neutral electricity by 2030. And the planned switch to electric cars by then depends on contemporary solid oxide fuel cells with scandium oxide.

Opportunities for High Returns Lie in Critical Commodities

What does it mean when commodities are deemed “critical”? In general, elements of the chemical periodic table are considered critical when a country’s domestic production is insufficient for its supply. The consequence is then the dependence on other countries, such as China. We witnessed something similar in 2022 during the situation with Russia. Oil, gas, and grain became scarce. The same applies to technology metals and rare earths. High demand meets a limited market with very few suppliers.

China Controls the Export

Currently, China is the main exporter of rare earths and technology metals. Nearly 90 percent of rare earths and about 70 percent of technology metals originate from China. If China reduces its exports, it leads to a shortage of these critical commodities. However, scarcity is also the key to profit, as scarcity is almost always associated with rising prices.

Pursuing Value Appreciation with the Current NEX

The value appreciation of technology metals has already been convincing in the past. Those who invested 10,000 euros in technology metals on January 1, 2021, received 18,295 euros in return on July 10, 2023. The graph shows the performance of NEX (Noble Elements Index, depicted in green) compared to gold, silver, the DAX, and the S&P 500. The trends illustrate how successfully the critical elements of Noble BC have performed in the past. The graph is regularly updated by Noble BC, so you can always see its current status.

Physical Assets Provide Real Security

At Noble BC, commodities are real tangible assets. Customers actually purchase the metals physically and become their unrestricted owners. Investing in critical metals offers unique security. Inflation or currency changes cannot affect the value of technology metals and rare earths, as they are indispensable to the industry. Investors cannot lose these assets due to mismanagement because they invest in a commodity purchase, not a business model.

Technology Metals Resemble Real Estate as Assets

Technology metals and rare earths can be compared to real estate. There is only a limited number of them, and owning one can generate earnings solely through its value appreciation, just like with real estate. And that’s exactly how it works with technology metals and rare earths. Just like with real estate, there are prime pieces in critical commodities. For their customers, Noble BC has selected five technology metals and five rare earths (see brochure). These are currently and will continue to be essential commodities for the industry.

The Pre-Investment Market of Critical Commodities Offers Special Opportunities

Currently, there is no stock exchange for technology metals and rare earths in Europe. However, this could change very soon, as interest in these elements is growing. Once major investors take notice of this asset class, a huge market could emerge for these commodities. Technology metals and rare earths could then be traded in large quantities and for substantial sums.

The Commodity Bull Market Has Only Just Begun

As an investment, technology metals have already experienced significant price increases in past years. The Bloomberg Index shows how commodities as an asset class have recovered after the COVID-19 crisis and have been gaining value since then.
