Born in Munich, he first studied economics and graduated in business administration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in 1995. As he was involved with the stock market at a very early stage, he now has more than 30 years of experience in the capital markets. In the historic dot.com year 2000, he trained as a CEFA analyst in Frankfurt and has since then accompanied over 20 IPOs in Germany.
Until 2018, he held various positions at banks as an asset manager, capital market and macro expert as well as fundamental equity analyst. He is passionate about the energy, commodity and technology markets as well as the tactical and strategic asset allocation of liquid investment products. As an expert speaker at investment committee meetings of funds as well as at customer events, he can still describe the course of the 1987 crash, one of the major buying opportunities of the last 33 years on the stock market.
Today, he knows that the profit in shares is not necessarily the result of buying cheaply, but above all of avoiding mistakes and recognizing in good time when markets are ready to let air out. After all, in addition to basic fundamental analysis, investing in stocks is above all a phenomenon of global liquidity and this must be monitored regularly.

Batteries are the solution to the climate dispute! Varta and BASF explode, while BYD and Power Nickel step on the gas!
After months of losses, battery-related stocks are in high demand again. Varta and BASF are leading the way with up to 50% gains! Varta is delivering initial results from its restructuring efforts, reigniting investor enthusiasm. The China market leader in e-mobility, "Build Your Dreams" (BYD), has also made decent gains since its spring weakness. The Canadian company Power Nickel is preparing to supply the battery market with high-grade nickel. Which share should be preferred now?Read

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has concluded her four-day trip to China. The conclusion of the visit is quite positive on both sides, even if Yellen openly admits differences between the two world powers. Relations between Washington and Beijing have deteriorated significantly in recent years over trade and human rights issues, dealings with Taiwan, and a host of other issues. However, the supply situation of strategic raw materials remains an important issue. We examine buying opportunities in the high-tech sector.Read

Hydrogen ahead of e-mobility! Nucera rises, Tesla falls - What are First Hydrogen, Nel and Plug Power doing?
The complete renewal of the energy landscape is gobbling up trillions. While the EU wants to spend at least EUR 300 billion over the next 10 years on e-mobility, wind and solar power, there are now already many private investors jumping on the bandwagon. Joe Biden's Inflation Act includes, in addition to some social issues, the energetic renewal of the superpower USA, which has been purely fossil-fuel driven for decades. In the hydrogen sector, the profitable H2 subsidiary ThyssenKrupp Nucera has ventured into the market. With a capitalization of EUR 2.7 billion, a clean start has been made. It will be interesting to see how strongly the parent company ThyssenKrupp can profit from the revaluation of its subsidiary. We analyze the opportunities in the volatile hydrogen sector.Read

666% rally in 5 years - can Nucera do even more? BioNTech, BioNxt Solutions, and Plug Power could be the winners!
The story of the Mainz-based biotech company BioNTech has set a precedent over the last 5 years. With a remaining gain of 666%, it still ranks among the best performers on the German stock market, even after a 75% price decline. Such movements usually take place on the NASDAQ, where it is easy for highly innovative technology or biotech stocks to raise the necessary growth capital. But not every stock market story is so positive. We go on a pearl diver's journey.Read

Many companies have set themselves the goal of contributing to offsetting man-made emissions and combating climate change. One proven means is gradual decarbonization, for example, in the energy-intensive heavy industry sector. The IPO of ThyssenKrupp's hydrogen subsidiary, Nucera, is important from this perspective because the newly raised funds will be used to advance green steel production. It is a German project that could set an international precedent. We take a deeper look into an emerging sector.Read

Forget the heating law - 100% turnaround opportunity possible with Deutsche Bank, Volkswagen, BYD and Cardiol Therapeutics
When the major indices perform, some stocks unfortunately fall by the wayside. This can be due to a lack of attractiveness or the impact of megatrends such as Artificial Intelligence or Digitalization. Deutsche Bank is well on track for 2023, Volkswagen's low valuation is bound to attract attention at some point, and biotech company Cardiol Therapeutics is poised for a big jump. We take a closer look.Read

In 2022, a total of 19.5 million people received the shocking diagnosis of "cancer". Current trends, unfortunately, suggest that this number will continue to rise in the coming years. However, thanks to growing research successes, there is hope that biotechnology will significantly increase the chances of survival for those affected. It is a matter of developing suitable active substances and launching modern therapies. mRNA technology has recently made a name for itself in cancer prevention. Innovative biotech companies are back on the radar of risk-conscious investors. We are on the lookout for doubling potential.Read

100% with Clean Energy! BYD, Regenx Technologies, BASF, Siemens Energy - Recycling is becoming a challenge!
As Western governments finally take climate protection seriously, the media has focused on the areas of energy, mobility, and health. It is clear to all participants that the changes in the world's climate will lead to undesirable developments. Glaciers are melting, the Earth's temperature is rising, and our oceans are already too warm for many species. Huge investments are being made in renewable power generation and modern mobility solutions. The high growth requires access to metals. Recycling also plays a major role because it conserves valuable resources and brings raw materials back into the cycle. Some companies are making a name for themselves, and shareholders can benefit from this.Read

Solar and wind instead of oil and gas - Shell, Saturn Oil + Gas, Lanxess: Germany focuses on decarbonization!
International energy policy is more disparate than ever. While the US, Canada, China, India, South America and Russia focus on exploiting their abundant fossil reserves, resource-poor countries like Germany and select European states are embracing renewable energies. This decision results from an existing shortage or is imposed in the EU alliance, but it fits argumentatively into the picture of rapid decarbonization, a main line of European policy. As a reminder, planet Earth is home to almost 8 billion people, while Europe has only about 700 million inhabitants. With 8.7% of the world's weight, activist climate policy is being pursued in this country. While the goals are laudable, the overall effect of the efforts is rather negligible. But the consequences for Europe's historically built-up prosperity will be considerable. What is important for investors to consider?Read

A lot of movement can be expected here: Covestro, Globex Mining, and Nikola - The focus is on 100% returns!
Greentech is politically promoted and booming. Many stocks are traded on the stock market with this fantasy. But what is really technologically feasible? Those seeking to switch from fossil energy to electric forms often overlook the sometimes poor efficiency in converting fossil primary energy sources to electricity from the socket. Truly green solutions are defined per se by applications that improve the overall energy balance of the goods moved or even achieve a net-zero impact. Access to cheap raw materials, especially high-tech metals, is a prerequisite for all endeavours. We look forward to interesting price movements in the sector.Read
