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.

Coca-Cola, Beyond Meat, The Very Good Food Company - Green Food, Blue Planet!

  • Vegan

To eat vegan or live consciously, let's say, is a decision that more and more people are making for themselves. According to estimates, there are between 700,000 and 1.3 million vegans living in Germany alone. In addition, there is a steadily growing number of so-called flexitarians who do not yet feel that they belong to be veganism; however, their food plan contains a heavily reduced amount of animal products. Even insects are included in the discussion of veganism so that vegans also do not (should not) consume honey from bees. Political and social change is progressing, and people's daily habits are changing accordingly. We look at the approaches of modern food producers.

BHP, Glencore, NewPeak Metals - Scarce, scarce and sold out!

  • Commodities

Whoever tries to order an e-bike from the Internet these days sometimes gets the delivery notice: "Due to missing components delivery delayed indefinitely!" Reason: The container ship "Ever Given" in the Suez Canal, shipwrecked, is still fully loaded at the Egyptian quay walls and is waiting to continue its journey. However, the insurance issues have not yet been resolved because the accident caused considerable damage to the canal structure. The riparian states admittedly do not want to pay for the restoration. It may therefore take some time before the insurance sum is paid. Moreover, on the ship are also bicycle components of the manufacturer Shimano, so European bicycle manufacturers cannot deliver!

FuelCell, NEL, Enapter - Hydrogen on the rise again!

  • Hydrogen

It was quiet around the hydrogen stocks for a few months. Although we see high stock market turnover, the prices tended to move sideways. Yesterday there was good quarterly news from Plug Power, sales are increasing, but the loss continued to grow because of their high investment costs. The whole industry was caught in the downward trend, but in the last 4 weeks, there was a small revival of the stocks. The independent research organization SINTEF from Norway forecasts a massive market for hydrogen with a demand of over 100 million tons by 2050. We take a brief look at the protagonists' cards.

Varta, BYD, NIO, Tesla, Almonty Industries - Battery becomes next billion-dollar topic!

  • RareEarths

The extent to which reality sometimes diverges from stock market trends is especially noticeable in hotly traded stocks. Early last week, it was the postponement of CureVac's vaccine launch that caused the stock price to lose 50% briefly. Then on Friday, there was the virtual AGM of Varta AG. The mood was very good in the run-up and the share reached a 5-month high of EUR 142. But then there was a correction of over 10% and the price found itself yesterday at EUR 127. The reason: premium manufacturers like Porsche are now going into battery research themselves. This opens up a competitor for Varta among the intended customers - they certainly had not bet on this, but the battery issue is a billion-dollar thing!

Porsche, Gazprom, Teck Resources, GSP Resource - The raw materials rally continues!

  • Copper

There was a minor decline on Friday. Rarely could the DAX in recent weeks get caught up in a correction. But on triple witching, it fell from the morning onwards and lost a full 2% to 15,420 points over the course of the day. The all-time high at 15.808 is now a bit removed, and the sidelines also had to give up a bit. The S&P 500 had its first bad week since the significant May correction. However, the chart technicians are still calm; it was probably just a correction in the uptrend. Commodities were largely spared from the correction, Brent and WTI oil at highs near USD 74 and 71 respectively, and copper still just under USD 10,000.

Carnival, TUI, Desert Gold - A total upswing or is it all over again?

  • Gold

It is probably one of the strangest travel waves since we could remember. For months we Germans could not leave our own country's borders without great effort; the ski season in 2020/21 fell victim to the COVID pandemic almost completely. Now we experience amazingly low incidences, which probably would have come even without lockdown...but let's take that as a given because some action had to be taken as public proof of action, after all. Now travel is possible again with good conditions for the vaccinated and a bit more cumbersome for recovered, healthy and non-vaccinated. Exciting to observe: How are the travel companies doing now?

CureVac, BioNTech, Novavax, XPhyto Therapeutics - The Covid giants and the sellout!

  • Biotechnology

How quickly the tide can turn in the environment of the Corona pandemic can be seen in the vaccine manufacturers and test providers. BioNTech's share price has been rising steadily since the start of the vaccination campaign in Germany, and minor reports of potential side effects are hardly disturbing. In the case of test provider NanoRepro, the bull market of recent months is turning into a total sell-off, with the share losing over 70%. And then there is the Tübingen-based biotech Company CureVac. Delays in approval and a shock on efficacy send the share down by a whole 50% in one day. We take a closer look at the situation.

Nel ASA, Plug Power, Deutsche Rohstoff AG: Oil explosion or hydrogen hype?

  • Oil

Brent prices are going through the roof! The stock markets have to digest their COVID trauma, and China is hoarding oil and other commodities to satisfy the upcoming boom. Many consumers worldwide are waiting for the delivery of their long-ordered products. Problem: Shortages of raw materials and chips are causing massive delivery delays around the globe. Then there were events like the blockade of the Suez Canal or the restrictive stance of OPEC. One would like to keep prices high; at least the Federal Reserve recently sounded the alarm: 5% inflation in a monthly rate! Warning shot or starting trend?

Varta, Apple, BYD, EuroSports Global - The stock market stars of electric mobility

  • Electromobility

The number of companies focusing on the electric mobility sector has been rising sharply for the past 2 years. Different business models and the majority of the companies are suppliers to larger integrators. Then there are many followers and startups that still want to harvest a piece of the future pie. For many ideas, time is ticking - time to market is the keyword - because the race for ready and in-demand products started about 5 years ago. Those who are just starting out today could be too late to market once the lengthy and costly development and testing phases have been completed. Apple and Google are investing billions to be part of it. We deal with a few of these protagonists.

SAP, TeamViewer, Siemens Energy, QMines: These are the buy signals!

  • Commodities

A tick higher every day, letting off some steam in between, but then closing at all-time highs again. This is the current stock market trend, which presents itself daily. It continues to be the stock market darlings and large standard stocks that move up. The NASDAQ has done a 4-week ride again, as it has done for the third time in a year. A 1000 point correction is followed by a 1500 point rise to a new high. Those who are not there just watch; even harder it hits the shorties, who again were not allowed to experience a bear market. The miraculous money multiplication thus continues. We look at interesting titles.
