Who builds the best battery? Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, SFC Energy, IBU-tec - The entry is tempting!

  • Energy
  • renewableenergies
  • GreenTech
  • Batteries

Three years ago, the Chinese battery market leader CATL presented its cell-to-pack technology to the world for the first time. A new battery with this design is now said to give e-vehicles a range of 1,000 km and super-fast charging in just 10 minutes. According to CATL, the "Qilin" battery is more powerful than Tesla's 4680 cells. CATL plans to begin mass-producing the new battery in 2023. Whether the promised distance will be achieved, however, depends on the size of the installed battery and the vehicle's aerodynamics. In Europe and North America, research and development is also being carried out at full speed because the market for e-mobility still promises growth of over 30% per annum. What is the current status in Germany?

First Hydrogen, Tesla, Volkswagen - Hydrogen or battery drive, who makes the race?

  • Hydrogen
  • Electromobility
  • GreenTech

The German Federal Ministry of Research and Education has big plans: the natural gas network is to be converted as a supply structure for hydrogen so that Germany is well equipped for the future. The Canadian company First Hydrogen is betting on hydrogen propulsion, launching its first production facility in Quebec. A call for leadership is being heard regarding Elon Musk and his car company Tesla. It seems that a blue bird and the desire for freedom of expression are taking up so much of his time that the share price is wobbling. The competition is not sleeping: Volkswagen is currently number one in Europe with its EV models. Who will make the race?

Comeback stocks: Nel, Aurora Cannabis, Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Hydrogen
  • Cannabis

Gold, cannabis and hydrogen could be among the top trends of the coming year - also on the stock market. Due to full order books, Nel could be poised for a comeback in 2023. At least sales are already secured until mid-2024. Now, all that is left is to cut the loss to reach analysts' price targets. Aurora Cannabis has largely completed its turnaround and is also hoping for legalization in Europe and the US. Driven by a strong gold price, mining stocks have already jumped. Now exploration companies should follow. Tocvan Ventures is one of them. And with the gold explorer, investors can look forward to a regular news flow in the coming year. Are the three candidates comeback stocks in 2023?

BYD, Auxico Resources, Hensoldt, Rheinmetall - Prepared for the future

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • RareEarths
  • Defense

Russia's invasion of Ukraine at the end of February this year changed everything. While global stock markets fell into a state of shock, shares in defense companies boomed. With the arms buildup in the Western world, the future looks bright for companies that were still viewed critically before the war of aggression. However, in order to produce enough tanks, aircraft and other war equipment, the industry needs a variety of critical metals for which demand already exceeds supply.

Advances in the fight against cancer: Arcus Biosciences, Gilead Sciences, Defence Therapeutics, BioNTech

  • Biotechnology
  • Covid19
  • Cancer

Research studies from 2020 show that 72% of Germans fear cancer. However, very few people want to admit to these fears. But precisely because the subject is a big taboo, it is worth looking at the latest achievements in research. Many companies worldwide have long been fighting the epidemic - and making astonishing progress. Just recently, a US biotech announced encouraging study results. Other companies have yet to launch promising studies. We provide an overview and outline opportunities from an investor's perspective.

Biotech stocks in focus: Morphosys, Evotec, Bayer, BioNxt Solutions

  • Biotechnology
  • Cancer
  • Investments

Biotech stocks have struggled in 2022. In Germany, BioNTech has overtaken the previous heavyweights Morphosys and Evotec in record time. Morphosys shocked investors with data on its Alzheimer's hope. Analysts lowered their thumbs, and short-sellers discovered the stock for themselves. Evotec has been quiet this year. Analysts think the valuation is attractive, but meeting earnings guidance in the current year is not a given. BioNxt shares have jumped recently, and if the positive newsflow continues into 2023, a re-rating is possible. At Bayer, the pharmaceuticals division is also developing positively. Conclusion: investors should position themselves for the biotech year 2023.

Profit now from the energy transition - Rock Tech Lithium, Power Nickel, Shell

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility

In the past, the internal combustion engine was at the center of the automotive industry, but this is now to change as quickly as possible in order to achieve the specified climate targets. Electrification is the magic word. However, there are high hurdles to overcome in implementing this. For example, it is still not certain whether the battery metals required for this, such as lithium, cobalt, copper and nickel, are available in sufficient quantities. Demand for the critical metals already exceeds supply. The beneficiaries are undoubtedly the producers of the scarce goods.

What to buy cheap? BYD and Uniper, BASF and Manuka Resources are on the rise

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • chemicals

Even if BYD delivers close to 100,000 vehicles to Sixt in the next few years, this is not a guarantee for rising share prices. After all, major shareholder Warren Buffet is divesting his Chinese hobby horse. Does he know more? Is it a portfolio decision, or does he want to preemptively counter possible geopolitical surprises related to Taiwan? We do not know. The fact remains: Buffet has a lot of followers, and that is forcing the BYD price further and further down. Meanwhile, BASF reports good numbers and pushes further north with a seasonally firm DAX - who would have thought? We dive a little deeper.

After turbulent months on the technology stock markets with high markdowns, a bottoming out is taking place across the board. While many companies are reporting better-than-expected figures, investors are also buying oversold companies whose quarterly figures were below analysts' consensus. Due to the still high fluctuation range, high trading profits can be expected.

Hydrogen from Qatar: Nel, Plug Power, dynaCERT and ThyssenKrupp, winners in H2 fever!

  • Hydrogen
  • greenhydrogen
  • GreenTech

"The accelerated expansion of hydrogen supply chains is central to the transition to sustainable energy." Economics Minister Habeck welcomed the planned cooperation between German companies and Emirati producers of hydrogen. For this purpose, there is a new research cooperation between the Fraunhofer Institute and the Ministry of Energy of the United Arab Emirates. Of particular interest to Germany is the production, storage and delivery of green hydrogen to the EU. Whether the FIFA World Cup will help to deepen industrial relations in this field is not certain. But what is important is that hydrogen technology is finally gaining momentum worldwide. We take a look at the protagonists in the round-up for important investments.

Wind power is a crucial component of the energy transition. Rare earths are used to increase the efficiency of wind turbines and electric motors. Dysprosium and terbium, in particular, are in demand. But although rare earths are anything but rare, they are only found in a few regions worldwide. Scientists at Darmstadt Technical University have now developed processes to use rare earths more efficiently. We explain the technology and shed light on three stocks related to rare earths.

Almonty Industries, ThyssenKrupp, Varta - Earning from growing tungsten demand

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • renewableenergies

In 2021, 79,000 metric tons of tungsten were mined worldwide from existing mines. In 2015, production was still 89,400 tons. One might think that demand has declined and production has been cut back, but the opposite is true. According to the British Geological Survey report, demand will increase between 3% and 7% per year and will soon exceed available supply. But now, demand could increase significantly in the short term because US Department of Energy DOE researchers have found a way to charge electric cars in 15 minutes. This involves using a molybdenum tungsten niobate alloy as the cathode material instead of graphite. So we take a look at three companies around tungsten.
