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.

Greentech sector buybacks - The stage is set for a 100% rally! Nordex, Defense Metals, SMA Solar and Siemens Energy
With the new EU Climate Law, Europe has once again raised its long-term target for reducing greenhouse gases by 2050. Instead of a reduction of 80% to 95%, the aim is now net zero emissions, i.e. "climate-neutral". This is to be followed by negative emissions in subsequent years. The idea sounds promising: emission reducers can offset emission sources! However, climate change generally requires the use of modern Greentech technologies that "produce" these savings. Those looking to reduce or replace fossil fuel consumption typically need large apparatus and innovations, such as various alternative energy sources converted into electricity. Europe, in particular, faces the challenge that most of the necessary metals are classified as critical, making it financially unrealistic to roll out innovative projects on a broad scale. Which shares stand out in this environment?Read

Rapid energy transition, metals remain in demand! JinkoSolar, Globex Mining, BYD and VW under scrutiny!
"Goodbye Hydrogen" - that is how investors in H2 stocks might title their investment success in 2023. On average, shares in the booming sector lost up to 85% in 2021. But the year is not over yet. Plug Power shares were hit hard last week, experiencing a sell-off of over 35% after the Q3 figures. The fundamental environment was ignored for many months, but now gravity is returning and sending overvalued stocks into the cellar. It is an environment for buyers willing to conduct some analysis. We help navigate the figures.Read

Green Energy in Focus - Varta, Siemens Energy, Power Nickel and Nordex - Find the next 100% gainer now!
That was a significant turnaround. While the DAX 40 index stood at 14,650 points at the end of October, it started its year-end rally at the beginning of November. On Friday, the index even broke back above the crucial 15,300 mark. There are now technical resistances to watch for upward movement. In the Greentech sector, there was good news from the corporate side: Varta is optimistic about the next quarter, and Siemens Energy is up 40% in 5 trading days. The Power Nickel share has been strong all year, and what about Nordex? All these stocks have the potential for a 100% gain – the question is, which one will take off first?Read

Ukraine, Middle East, BRICS - Is climate policy over? Nel ASA, Klimat X, SFC Energy and Plug Power with 100% chances!
The turnaround was sudden and very sharp. A few days ago, the DAX, NASDAQ and hydrogen stocks were in free fall, but the tide turned at the beginning of November. The DAX 40 jumped 600 points because the central banks on both sides of the Atlantic finally ceased tightening, and the first interest rate cuts are now expected in 2024. The hydrogen protagonists suffered losses of up to 70% in just 6 months - but Nel & Co have already made up a third of those losses. What is next for Greentech stocks?Read

Caution: New Corona wave ahead? BioNTech, Pfizer, Cardiol Therapeutics and MorphoSys on the performance test bench
Smouldering lawsuits from vaccinated patients experiencing severe side effects have caused investors to doubt BioNTech and Pfizer in recent months. Will the plaintiffs be successful in court? This is rather unlikely, as the vaccine manufacturers can always invoke the time component in the fight against the pandemic. After all, what the WHO and all governments wanted was delivered: A quick solution! Moreover, these vaccines were finally approved by well-known health institutes. The biotech investment segment will become exciting again as winter approaches. The infection figures with the new coronavirus variants are rising noticeably again, and around 15% of the population wishes to get vaccinated. Where are the opportunities for investors?Read

GreenTech shares are on the rise! Siemens Energy, Altech Advanced Materials, Nordex and JinkoSolar under scrutiny
After months of selling off, Greentech shares are making a comeback. By late fall, popular hydrogen and solar stocks had lost between 50% and 85% of their share prices from the boom times of 2020/21. Now, everything points to a rebound. Battery innovator Altech Advanced Materials is also coming up with good news. If everything goes according to plan, lithium-ion technology could soon see a dramatic increase in efficiency. We take a look at the bombed-out sector and where the opportunities lie for investors.Read

Hydrogen is back: Nel ASA, Plug Power with 50% potential. What are Shell and Saturn Oil + Gas up to?
Things have moved quickly. Last week, the DAX 40 index scratched the 14,600-point mark, but yesterday, it was close to the 15,200 hurdle in heavy trading. This is a dream situation from a chart point of view, as the market was able to bid farewell to the short scenario with the central banks taking a breather and presented an ecstatic rebound. Hydrogen stocks Nel ASA and Plug Power, which had been beaten up for a long time, made strong gains yesterday, while oil stocks Shell and Saturn Oil & Gas consolidated at a high level. How long will the hydrogen rebound last, and what is next for the energy sector? We do the math.Read

Surprise after Q3 figures: Deutsche Bank, Microsoft, Desert Gold, Siemens - Good Chart Technique and a boost from AI?
The ECB has paused its interest rate adjustments for the first time in 12 months. It is not surprising, as a declining economy is currently causing inflationary pressures to subside somewhat. Because of the numerous geopolitical conflicts, gold has surpassed the USD 2,000 mark again after a long consolidation period. And then there are the many quarterly figures. It is good for those who can keep track of them all. We look at new developments with Deutsche Bank, Microsoft's entry into the German corporate AI market, and the excellent opportunities at the explorer Desert Gold.Read

Lithium: The million-ton question! BASF, Standard Lithium, Edison Lithium, Varta - The Top List for 2024
Lithium-ion batteries are the most widely used battery type for electric vehicles and stationary energy storage. Estimates vary widely, but by 2025, we will need between 500,000 and 850,000 thousand tons of lithium, but in 2022 only 130,000 tons were produced. Against the backdrop of continued high global demand for e-vehicles, many high-performance batteries will be needed. Four gigafactories are currently being built in Europe, and the demand seems enormous. Each auto manufacturer has its own sourcing strategy, but there is currently a problem on the supply side because not every raw material is easy to obtain. Lithium is one of the most essential raw material components of a battery, along with nickel, cobalt, graphite and copper. Prices across the battery segment are under pressure due to the approaching economic downturn. What should investors look out for now?Read

Omicron or Pirola? Biotech shows doubling opportunities again! BioNTech, Pfizer, Defence Therapeutics, MorphoSys in focus
We had ticked off the Corona pandemic long ago. But if you ask your acquaintances, you may find one or two who have recently been infected with the "Pirola" variant. The official code of the virus variant is BA.2.86, and it was first discovered in Israel. The current infections are spreading rapidly across Europe and have also reached Germany. So far, the new Omicron offshoot appears less contagious than its predecessors. The new symptoms associated with "Pirola" include skin rashes, diarrhea, changes in the mouth and tongue, itchy eyes and surprisingly, sore fingers or toes. What is going on here? It is a reason to look again at BioNTech and some other biotechs. Where are the opportunities lurking?Read
