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.

E-mobility - Tesla in crisis! BYD, Almonty Industries, Mercedes, Porsche - Who is the best performer in 2023?
The year 2022 ended with a sell-out at Tesla. Not that the shelves for Tesla vehicles were ransacked - no - the Elon Musk share advanced to the negative leader in the car performance list with a 70% loss. First, there was the egocentric's Twitter takeover, which could only be contested by sales in Tesla shares. Then many funds followed the downward trend, selling heavily until just before Christmas. The news of the construction of a Tesla infrastructure in Turkey helped the stock to a quick revival at the beginning of the year. But who has the best cards among automotive stocks in 2023?Read

New COVID outbreak in China: BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics, CureVac and Valneva shares in focus again in 2023
The next COVID wave is rolling towards Europe. Representatives of the EU states therefore want to discuss a unified approach on Wednesday due to the latest development in China. The main issue is how to deal with entrants from China. A spokeswoman for the Federal Ministry of Health in Berlin said that the situation is being closely monitored and that the EU partners are also being consulted. At French airports, arrivals from China are already generally tested for the virus. Italy and Spain have also reacted with corresponding regulations. The German government sees no reason to do so so far. Is Germany too slow again, or is prudence the order of the day?Read

Top Asian Picks for 2023 in place of Tesla: Alibaba, Alpina Holdings, BYD, JinkoSolar: Invest in the best!
The Asian tech giants have not yet been able to break away from their downward trend in 2022. After losing almost 50% in 2021, e-commerce giant Alibaba again lost more than 15% at the end of the year, while other stocks such as Baidu and Tencent also posted double-digit losses. In the US, the once so-popular stocks were quickly removed from the funds. Currently, only die-hard fans are likely still invested. Fortunately, the tense situation has calmed down somewhat in recent weeks, and even the Chinese regulator is gradually realizing that the heavy monitoring of the digital economy is slowing down the growth prospects of its own economy. Some analysts have already downgraded Chinese GDP growth by a full 1.5 percentage points from 2022 to 2025. However, Asia can still score points in an international comparison. Where are the opportunities?Read

As we approach the end of the year, it is difficult to separate the real economic opportunities from the current war and crisis scenarios. The forecasting institutes are also poking around in the fog with their statements for 2023, with a still conciliatory economic development at the zero line being defined subject to falling interest rates and declining inflation. Under the sword of Damocles of a possible gas crisis starting in March, however, all predictions turn negative because Germany as an industrial location is already struggling considerably with the energy and electricity price increases. So how do you select a top performer for the portfolio?Read

Goodbye Tesla shares - Now bet on the hydrogen rally 2023: Plug Power, First Hydrogen, Nel, Ballard Power
Tesla is experiencing a continued decline in demand in China. According to internal plans, the assembly lines at the production site in Shanghai will be at a standstill for almost two weeks in January. The US electric carmaker plans to produce at its main factory at the beginning of 2023 only, from January 3 to 19. Around the Chinese New Year, Tesla will stop the assembly lines. Tesla did not give an official reason for the surprising break. The Company, founded by Elon Musk, has yet to respond to press requests to comment on the production cuts after Christmas. The share has now lost 40% in 4 weeks and continues to go down unchecked. Last Saturday, Tesla had already largely stopped production in Shanghai for the rest of the year. The prospects for electric car makers are clearly darkening, and we look to alternatives such as hydrogen.Read

Hydrogen shares - Environmental technology to take off in 2023: Plug Power, dynaCERT, ThyssenKrupp and Uniper
As we look ahead into the new year 2023, hydrogen technology could positively contribute to the energy transition for the first time. The key factors are the stroke rate, the price and the quantity that can be generated in an environmentally friendly manner to industrial standards. Plug Power, one of the market leaders in modern fuel cell systems, will bring H2 technology to market in large-scale production. Canada's dynaCERT is already delivering good H2 augmentation systems, and Germany could once again become an engineering hub. Where are the opportunities for investors?Read

Is the e-mobility gold rush coming to an end? Volkswagen, BYD, Alerio Gold, Deutsche Bank - What is going on with Tesla?
Elon Musk had a calculated fortune of around USD 280 billion at the peak of the Tesla share. After the crash of the miracle share and the purchase of Twitter, he is now said to own around USD 150 billion less. According to calculations by the analysis firm Factset, Musk still holds around 14% of the shares in electric car manufacturer Tesla. Here alone, there is a gaping loss of over USD 100 billion. New at the world's top for the first time is a Frenchman: Bernard Arnault, the 73-year-old CEO and co-owner of the luxury group LVMH. According to the US magazine Forbes, he has a total fortune of USD 186 billion - and thus passes Musk and Buffet. Has the "climate wonder weapon" electromobility already seen its horizon?Read

Fossil energy supply is becoming more and more expensive. The political end of the supplier and raw material giant Russia creates a dangerous undersupply, especially for Central Europe. The current winter, but especially the next one, could pose problems, and the industry will probably have to calculate significantly higher input costs in the medium term. Products are becoming considerably more expensive to produce, so selling prices on the shelves are also increasing. The inflationary spiral will thus continue to spiral upward, and consumers' purchasing power will decline. GreenTech solutions are more in demand than ever for the purchase of low-cost energy. So which stocks to watch out for?Read

Crisis, crisis, crisis - we do not want to hear any more about it at Christmas time. After the relief rally, the stock markets have gone back to sleep. It was turbulent until September, and then the correction was over for the time being. But how much "good" is already priced in for next year? Will there be a quick end to the war, can the inflation rate also fall, and what will interest rates do in 2023? Many unanswered questions that will likely only be answered gradually. The shares have to achieve a fair valuation from this mixed situation - perhaps that is why the correction is not quite over yet. Where are the best opportunities for investors?Read

100% turnaround opportunities for 2023: TUI, Uniper, Desert Gold, FlatexDEGIRO - The New Year's Eve bangers!
Despite all the gloom, the capital market offers plenty of new opportunities every day. Although the DAX is holding up well at the end of the year, many shares have crashed and remain at the bottom of the charts for the time being. But there are some glimmers of hope. Many investors sell poorly performing shares at the end of the year in order to benefit from the tax write-off of losses. The lucky investors even have a few profits to offset and like to smooth out the underperformers at year-end. Shares in Uniper, TUI and FlatexDEGIRO have slumped between 40% and 90% this year, but there are bright spots for 2023.Read
