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.

100% opportunities with Nel, Plug Power, Royal Helium - Hydrogen is turning now!

  • Helium
  • Hydrogen
  • greenhydrogen
  • renewableenergies

How will the energy transition in Europe really unfold? Hydrogen is a tricky matter. The raw material is considered an alternative building block for a green future and, according to experts, could become one of the most important energy sources in the coming decades. Nevertheless, there is a lack of green energy sources for its environmentally friendly production. Even under the best conditions, producing electricity from green hydrogen still costs around twice as much as from oil, coal or natural gas. Since 2022, consumers have had to cope with cost increases of over 50% in energy and are unlikely to be able to use hydrogen in a meaningful way. The necessary decisions for economic implementation, therefore, lie with politicians. H2 shares have lost around 85% in the last 24 months. In addition to a technical rebound in hydrogen, investors should also take a closer look at the technical gas helium.

1200% with artificial intelligence, 100% with Bitcoin, and now comes Gold! Barrick, Desert Gold, Aixtron and Super Micro

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • AI
  • Bitcoin

The stock market keeps rising - this is indicated by the ever-new highs of prominent indices such as the NASDAQ 100 or the DAX 40 index. However, a closer look reveals some inconsistencies. For example, only 7% of all traded stocks are currently reaching new highs, while over 60% of all listed stocks are falling. In short, global liquidity is aggregated in just a few blockbuster stocks worldwide, while the rest are being left behind. Such bubbles occurred in 1999, 2007, and 2015, followed by a 25% to 50% correction. No one knows when it will happen again, but the party will likely last a little longer. Gold and Silver have been trending sideways at a high level for the past 3 years, but the yellow metal showed the first signs of life last week. What should investors look out for now?

Uranium with exploding demand! Kraken Energy ideally positioned, hydrogen with Nel ASA and Plug Power in rebound?

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Hydrogen
  • climatechange

Some politicians are feverishly dreaming of making energy generation climate-neutral! Those who take a closer look at the matter realize that the speed of adaptation to more sustainable electricity production must be supported by sizeable public investment budgets. In Germany and the EU, so-called eco-taxes are levied on private transport, which are used to finance alternative energy generation. That is the green theory, as expensive environmental projects should benefit the general public. Because the EU recently gave nuclear energy the "green light" in its taxonomy, this form of energy is now coming back into focus. The protagonists of this view are the nuclear power supporters France, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic, with Germany notably staying out of this topic. Worldwide, over 50 reactors are expected to come online in the next few years, and what is needed for that is uranium. Which shares should be in focus now?

E-mobility versus combustion engines: Tesla and BYD stumble, Mercedes-Benz and Globex Mining in Vogue!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility

The Tesla plant in Brandenburg is discharging polluted wastewater into the canals. Permissible limits for phosphorus and nitrogen are exceeded by up to six times. Elon Musk has not yet reacted to the accusations, as he is busy planning the expansion of his production facility. If the authorities were to take action here, the plant could also be subject to a production stop until the harmful sources are eliminated. Once again, environmental protection and the climate debate clash with the self-interest of foreign producers seemingly not on the radar of existing EU regulations. The water debate is nothing new. Since the plant in Grünheide went into operation, local communities have had to contend with a drop in the groundwater level because the plant draws an impermissible amount of water. For those finding Tesla unsympathetic due to these issues, look for other opportunities in the automotive sector!

Timing is half the battle! Watch out for defense stocks: Renk, Rheinmetall, Hensoldt, and dynaCERT in focus!

  • Hydrogen
  • armaments

Despite a red-green government, defense stocks are in demand again in Germany. After years of pacifism, Berlin's traffic light government is now firing up arms investments everywhere with conviction. The aim is to make the war in Ukraine a success for Europe by supplying weapons - an interesting experiment and an entirely new direction in the German political spectrum. The underfunding of the German Bundeswehr has been rightly recognized, and now an additional EUR 100 billion is to be allocated under the Basic Law. The stock market picks up on this trend and values the sought-after armaments higher and higher, and international exports are now more legitimized than ever. That is how quickly times change. This brings fantasy to the share price and a windfall for resourceful investors. Where do further opportunities lie?

Will GreenTech soon be back in vogue? Nel ASA, Klimat X, Nordex, and Plug Power are under analyst scrutiny!

  • Sustainability
  • GreenTech
  • renewableenergies
  • Hydrogen

Despite new record highs in global stock markets, the GreenTech sector has yet to show any gains. The hydrogen sector, in particular, which was hyped in 2020/21, has been struggling for the past three years. With share price losses of 70 to 90%, investors are hopeful that a bottom could be reached in the foreseeable future. We analyze whether this could already be the case and present an alternative in the form of Klimat X. Business is running smoothly here, and the CO2 savings are even certified.

Takeover fever in the biotech sector! Will MorphoSys now be followed by Defence Therapeutics, Evotec and Bayer?

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Innovations

It has happened: Novartis is bidding for MorphoSys. Once again, a long-lasting and persistent rumour mill eventually confirms itself. Those who remained loyal to MorphoSys despite heavy selling last fall have now made a profit of over 300%. If we turn the analytical magnifying glass on the sector, we can see that the speculative biotech stock market segment has started to move again since the challenging year 2023. Hopes of falling interest rates in the near future, along with several other M&A hopes, have led to steady inflows into listed bio-ETFs, resulting in fund managers having recently adjusted their weightings upwards. We analyze which stocks are currently making the loudest noise.

MorphoSys and Cardiol Therapeutics in upward mode, while Bayer and Pfizer are in slow mode

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

The biotech sector has made a very differentiated start to the new year. While the old favorites are barely moving, the second-line stocks MorphoSys and Cardiol Therapeutics are making a real splash. At Bayer, the bad news just won't go away, and despite a successful major takeover, Pfizer has not yet found its forward gear. After a rally of almost 15% in December, the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (NBI) has taken a pause in the current year. Now, everyone is waiting for the first interest rate cut by central banks. Inflation is already falling, and the negative economic data for the Eurozone is increasing. The ECB would normally be in demand. What should investors urgently keep an eye on?

Bear market in Hydrogen versus Bull market in Artificial Intelligence - Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Nvidia and ARM Holdings

  • Hydrogen
  • AI
  • renewableenergies

The stock market is relentless at the moment. While Nvidia has gained almost 50% in just 5 weeks, the stock market darlings Nel ASA and Plug Power continue to lose value. Small recovery attempts have been consistently sold off recently. No stone is being left unturned in this segment, and investors are eagerly awaiting the upcoming 2023 annual figures. Is there hope, or should we continue to write off hydrogen? On the other hand, some companies are making significant progress with a different business model, setting new records. So what to do? A brief update for active investors.

Combustion engine versus battery! BYD, Altech Advanced Materials, Mercedes and VW in focus

  • Technology
  • hightech
  • Electromobility

The year 2024 is going like clockwork for the high-tech sector so far. Anything smelling of "Artificial Intelligence" is being valued significantly higher on the stock market with relatively little scrutiny. In the DAX 40 Index, this has notably affected Siemens and SAP and the topic of armaments, which in turn catapulted Airbus and Rheinmetall into new realms. Things are even more dynamic on the Nasdaq, where Microsoft and Nvidia, in particular, are causing a sensation. However, e-mobility, particularly favoured by the Berlin traffic light coalition, is stumbling due to the abolition of the environmental bonus in December 2023. Customers are again opting for domestic combustion engines and Chinese e-imports. We analyze the current opportunities for investors.
