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 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.

Alphabet, Aspermont, Palantir - Big Data in a new dimension!

  • Digitization

Information today spreads in a matter of seconds and is immediately converted into cash by machines with corresponding trading algorithms. It usually takes a few minutes from the original company message for the relevant news services to filter and analyze the information content accordingly. That is because the analysis of a message is, per se, only possible after a professional check. Modern systems with artificial intelligence work with keywords that evaluate the respective characteristics of the news according to an internal scoring and forward them to the decision-maker at lightning speed. We take a look at some of the protagonists in the big data analytics sector.

SGL Carbon, Millennial Lithium, Standard Lithium, Blackrock Silver - Millions of batteries needed!

  • Silver

If current trends in Germany remain valid, the share of electric vehicles in new sales will shake the 25% mark in the next 5 years. In a recent forecast, the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) predicts new car sales of around 480,000 battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrids this year, representing a good 15% share of new registrations of an estimated 3.3 million passenger cars. The assumption is that battery and plug-in hybrid vehicles will each account for around 50%. By 2025, according to the forecast, the e-vehicle share will rise to 27% of new sales, of which about 65% are expected to be pure electric vehicles. The scenario for the battery industry is thus set.

Microsoft, Daimler, Mineworx Technologies - Market leaders on the rise!

  • Investments

The claim to market leadership can be made by the Company that can demonstrate the largest market share in comparison with the other market participants. The measure of market share is based either on market volume or market sales in units. Some typical attributions are the market leader in Germany, the European market leader or the world market leader in a relevant product sales market. Of course, market leadership is not indisputable, especially from a subjective point of view. A broader focus is needed to determine who sets the tone.

Pure Extraction, BallardPower, JinkoSolar, Siemens Energy - The makers of the future!

  • Hydrogen

The most efficient ways to generate energy are being discussed almost daily. With nearly 8 billion people on the planet, we need to put energy-intensive mobility on a viable and sustainable footing. The shift to post-industrial economies and rapid changes in information technologies, for example, have greatly simplified the coordination of work. In terms of jobs, there is potential for greater flexibility and dispersion, according to Eurostat. The relationship between home and workplace is being redefined. Mobility and energy concepts that adapt to the new forms of work and production are therefore in demand.

Defense Metals, Varta, Nordex - Scarce metals are the new gold!

  • RareEarths

Whether gallium, chromium or rare earths - many metals are indispensable for modern technology. Where supply bottlenecks or shortages threaten, researchers have now determined the criticality of 62 elements in the most comprehensive analysis to date. As it shows, the supply risk is particularly high for the metals needed for the highly specialized tasks in high-tech devices. Iron, copper, nickel and tin, and almost all other metals of the periodic table, make our modern civilization possible. Most technical applications would not exist without them - from cars and computers to televisions and cell phones. How do companies deal with fragile supply chains and shortages?

Enapter, NEL, Plug Power, FuelCell - Hydrogen under cross-examination!

  • Hydrogen

The sharp rise in prices for heating energy and fuels keeps Germany's inflation rate at a high level. With an increase of 2.3% compared to the same month last year, inflation slowed slightly in June, but it had risen in each of the previous five months, reaching 2.5% in May, the highest level in almost 10 years. The efficient production of hydrogen and its industrial utilization would make our energy supply affordable and environmentally sustainable in the long term. Unfortunately, current technologies are still costly and not suitable for mass production. However, hydrogen remains a hot topic on the stock market. We take a look at the main actors in the H2 thriller.

TeamViewer, wallstreet:online, Deutsche Post - The digital winners list!

  • Digitization

When the dot-com boom took off at the turn of the millennium, many immature and unpromising business models came onto the market. Every idea needed a stock market listing - then the techno-crash followed and many of the companies had already disappeared again. The Covid pandemic triggered a surge in digitization - some new achievements now determine the working world of every individual and change society as a whole. The successful business models show their strengths primarily in the areas of life that are now in the foreground: Distant Working, Fintech and Delivery Systems. We take a look at the cards of three protagonists.

BYD, Plug Power, White Metal Resources - Watch out at the platform edge!

  • Commodities

At some point, the market must also consolidate! Almost daily, the S&P 500 had climbed to a new high in recent weeks. Despite individual inflation warnings from the central banks, the shares continued to climb blithely: "The trend is your friend!" - and so it is not a big deal to have to give up 2%. The time had come yesterday - investors took cover for the time being. Now it must be seen whether strong trends can withstand a temporary downturn. We look at three interesting stocks.

K+S, Theta Gold Mines, Varta - Explosion in construction materials and raw materials!

  • Commodities

The price rally in essential commodities continues. An acute shortage of building materials has caused some sharp price increases on construction sites. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office, in May 2021, solid structural timber increased in price by 83.3% year-on-year, roof battens by 45.7% and structural timber by 38.4%. The increased prices of wood and steel and industrial metal are driving up construction costs: reinforcing steel in bars was 44.3% more expensive in May 2021, and reinforcing steel mesh cost 30.4% more than a year ago. The main reasons for the rising lumber and steel prices are likely to be rising demand at home and abroad during the Corona pandemic and problems in the supply of raw materials. By comparison, the producer price index of industrial products rose 7.2% over the same period - the most significant monthly increase in 25 years. Who are the beneficiaries of the shortage rally?

Crazy times - Boris Johnson is abandoning all Corona rules because he wants to free the people. In Germany, vaccine doses are now being destroyed daily because registrations for the vaccine administration are canceled en masse. In dealing with people, politics often comes up against indefinable limits; certain adjusting screws have been turned too much and too far to steer and control behavior from above. The desire for life is now visibly apparent; the shopping streets are filling up, some products are simply out of stock or unavailable. Everything is in short supply - and because of rising prices, the manufacturers of luxury goods are looking forward to the new livelihoods who have learned in lockdown that pure possession of money does not make you happier.
