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.

Total sell-off in hydrogen! Nel ASA, Manuka Resources, Plug Power - Find the 300% pearl now

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Vanadium
  • renewableenergies
  • Hydrogen

The topic of hydrogen has been put on the back burner for the time being. Although the COP28 conference in Dubai showed a broad consensus on reducing greenhouse gases and avoiding fossil fuels, the OPEC countries, in particular, insist on their traditional right to continue tapping into the abundant oil wells. The observers conclude that everything remains the same; each does what it does best. The transformative idea of saving the world is collectively present, but if it can be solved with nuclear energy, then nuclear reactors will be built. This also highlights how the green-dominated traffic light policy on environmental issues is perceived internationally: Teachings from Germany are only smiled at. The topic of hydrogen was politically launched in Europe and has been traded on the stock exchange as a "world energy savior" since 2019; now, investors are sitting on a 90% loss. Is there still hope?

E-mobility boom 2024, when will the German vehicle market take off? BYD, Edison Lithium, VW, BMW

  • Lithium
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies
  • Electromobility

The last word in e-mobility has not yet been spoken. While BYD is leading the sales list worldwide, Tesla is struggling with important supplier parts and has had to halt production temporarily. German manufacturers have used the last two years to catch up on technical backlogs and are preparing to score points in the "electric world", too. Last year, buyers were offered a state environmental bonus on top, but this was cancelled before Christmas. Now, the market has to prove that it can survive with fewer subsidies. Where are the opportunities for investors?

Biotech: Corona is back! The doublers are lurking here: BioNTech, Evotec, Defence Therapeutics and Bayer

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Covid19

We had almost forgotten about Corona and the good old flu, but it is back in full swing. Governments are remaining calm and holding on to their regained liberalism. However, Spain is now resorting to drastic measures again to protect vulnerable population groups. A mask is to be compulsory again in all Spanish healthcare facilities due to the increase in respiratory diseases. Health Minister Mónica García had previously failed to convince the Spanish regions of the need to introduce compulsory masks of their own accord. In some parts of the country, hospital emergency rooms are under severe pressure due to high patient numbers. Biotech stocks are showing the first signs of recovery after the sell-off in 2023. We take a look at a few selected stocks with 100% potential.

Despite farmers' strike - rally with hydrogen and GreenTech ahead in 2024! Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Nordex and Siemens Energy

  • Hydrogen
  • GreenTech
  • renewableenergies

While the DAX and NASDAQ are soaring from high to high, some stocks are completely falling by the wayside. We are talking about countless GreenTech stocks that have missed the boat in terms of profitability. In the 2023 investment year, solar, wind and hydrogen companies suffered losses of between 50% and 80%. Investors responded to the lack of profits with a collective exodus and offset the share price gains of the last three years. The decisions taken at the World Climate Conference in Dubai could now be the starting signal for a medium-term rebound attempt. Those who analyze the situation closely may arrive at surprising insights.

Start of the year with GreenTech hype! Will BYD, Klimat X Developments, Plug Power and Freyr Battery deliver now?

  • GreenTech
  • Sustainability
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

The year 2024 will be the next test for GreenTech shares. In the past investment year, despite bullish markets, they were the biggest losers in the portfolio. Plug Power and Freyr Battery incurred the most significant negative returns, ranging from 70 to 80%, but BYD and Klimat X also saw a slight decline. However, with the resolutions passed in Dubai and new government climate protection programs, things could pick up again in the new year. But who can win the coveted government contracts? We analyze the opportunities and risks.

Berlin abolishes the eco-bonus, so what now for e-mobility? Plug Power, Prospera Energy, VW and Porsche in focus

  • renewableenergies
  • Electromobility
  • Oil

Investors who bet on green energy in 2023 took a big hit. Contrary to many forecasts for the future, the wind and hydrogen sector has yet to show any sustained positive development. Government budgets are simply insufficient to promote these still unprofitable forms of energy. Private investors want to see returns on their investments. State-of-the-art combustion technologies will likely remain available for years because they are efficient and work in all weather conditions. Those who experienced their electric vehicle running out of power on December 1, 2023, at minus 10 degrees with 1 meter of fresh snow can attest to the challenges. We look at titles that carry the essence of fossil energy approaches in their soul.

This is where the music plays: Top values wanted for 2024! Mercedes, Globex Mining, BYD, and NIO to the inspection!

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility

It was a challenging year for the otherwise popular automotive stocks. Berlin and Brussels no longer want combustion engines, but consumers do. Then, to top it off, the environmental bonus was also cut at Christmas. The traffic light coalition believes that e-mobility should now sell itself. Far from it, say the experts: combustion engines still account for 97% of road vehicles. Those in office are governing for minorities, as there has long been a lack of scientific facts and a lack of tact. But well, customers are voting with their feet, turning new vehicles into shelf warmers and buying their beloved diesel SUVs through the used car market. This market could even flourish over the next few years and demand scarcity premiums. Where are the opportunities for investors?

Donald Trump turns 2024 into a false start - This is where the action is: TUI, Lufthansa, Desert Gold and Alibaba

  • travel
  • ecommerce

"If I do not become president, the stock market is in for a bigger crash than the Great Depression of 1929," proclaimed Donald Trump, the former president and Republican aspirant, at the end of the year. The assessment makes for amusing and entertaining reading and contains an important message. The economy is sluggish, war is raging in many places, and inflation is galloping. Why are stocks still trading near their all-time highs? It is the interest rate fantasy because between 4 and 7 interest rate cuts by the ECB and the Fed are expected in 2024. This will allow countries to continue their bloated and debt-financed budgets, but it will not create prosperity in the long run. Despite Trump's gloomy forecast, we look at some interesting turnaround stocks.

Returns beckon here: The Biotech favorites for 2024! BioNTech, Pfizer, Cardiol Therapeutics and MorphoSys in focus

  • Biotechnology

The past year was a disaster for investors in the Biotech sector - no golden check as often seen before. Despite all the gloom, the key indicator, the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (NBI), has managed an annual gain of around 7% since the end of October, thanks to a fabulous 15% upswing. The index was temporarily down 12%. High capital costs made it difficult for research-based companies to refinance, and it is only now, with falling inflation rates, that interest rate hopes are reviving. The 10-year yield in the US fell by more than 100 basis points from 4.98% to 3.84% in a short space of time. Now, the industry senses a positive outlook again. At the end of the year, the positive environment helped some Biotech stocks shake off the negative trend and initiate a turnaround. Which stocks should we focus on?

The big turnaround 2024: Hydrogen with Nel, Plug Power, ThyssenKrupp Nucera and dynaCERT

  • Hydrogen
  • greenhydrogen

While the DAX 40 and NASDAQ indices are climbing to new all-time highs, hydrogen stocks are sinking further and further into the ground. But there is hope! With the exception of the OPEC states, around 200 countries have spoken out in favor of phasing out fossil fuels at the COP28 Climate Conference in Dubai. This should give the signatory governments a good opportunity to restart their state subsidy programs in favour of alternative energies in the coming year. Now is the time to re-examine the battered sector. Nel ASA and Plug Power have recently reported declining order volumes, while dynaCERT and Nucera are performing well operationally. We are looking at a sector that has the potential to gain several hundred percent in 2024.
