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.

Inflation is galloping, with so-called "steepening" occurring in the bond markets. A steepening yield curve is historically often accompanied by a peak in the stock market in the following 9-15 months after the yield curve reaches a cyclical minimum. The last interest rate low was reached in August 2019 at minus 0.50% in the ten-year range, and it even managed to stay there until October 2020. The DAX reached its all-time high in November 2021 at over 16,300 points, 13 months after the previous interest rate low, then followed a 25% downward correction to 12,400 points. If inflation and the rise in interest rates do not moderate, things look bleak for the stock markets. Selection, therefore, remains key!Read

The Ukraine crisis reveals a dangerous dependency. Central Europe is on Russia's energy drip. It is not easy to threaten Russia with sanctions when the oil and gas giant is also the leading supplier. For the primary supply of our population, any change in German-Russian relations is dramatic as long as we do not manage to build up alternatives. Of course, this cannot be done in just a few months but involves an investment cycle of the next 5 to 10 years. It will therefore be critical for the coming winter. The automotive industry has long recognized what threatens heating and district heating today. Move away from fossil fuels - towards batteries! Only who can build them?Read

The start of spring - and where to now? The mild flu outbreaks due to the Omicron variant and associated massive relaxations of Corona measures in many countries are weighing on the prospects of vaccine manufacturers in the short term. After all, there are no clinical bottlenecks, and the vaccination rate does not want to increase despite massive public campaigns. Mandatory vaccination is also off the table, and for the biotech industry and vaccine producers, this results in a need to keep researching other topics! Many diseases are more dangerous for us humans than Corona. We look at important protagonists.Read

The risks on the capital markets are increasing, as can be seen in the volatility indices. They were around 18 before the invasion of Ukraine and rose to over 35 by mid-March. The volatility index measures the range of fluctuation expected by the futures markets in the coming months. If we follow this indication, we could still be in for a tough summer. Possibly significantly lower again but, with the desired political easing, also a little upward similarly. However, investors need to be aware of the exploding inflation, the tight commodity markets and the supply chain problem. These are ongoing issues that will not pass anytime soon. The following values could provide some stability.Read

Ukraine is one of the leading export nations of wheat worldwide. However, the so-called "granary of Europe" does not primarily supply European countries because the main customers are mainly in Asia and North Africa. The most important destination for Ukrainian wheat in 2020, for example, was Egypt. The largest amount is transported overland to Odessa, where it is shipped. But now Putin has started bombing the important port city. Diesel and fertilizer are becoming scarce, so it is all the more important that there are Western specialists who are trying to secure a supply of food through special deliveries in fertilizer and technology. Where are the opportunities for investors?Read

Whether e-mobility, aircraft technology or renewable energies, virtually all high-tech segments seek suitable energy storage. The development driver is climate protection, which will put mobility and energy generation and distribution on a new footing in the future. In order to bring e-mobility to a level of efficiency similar to the most modern diesel technology, on the one hand, significantly more environmentally friendly battery production processes are required, as well as a massive increase in performance. The electric boom is thus creating an incredible pull for battery metals, above all, lithium. With a 500% increase in 24 months, the price of the white metal recently reached a new high. But producers are scarce!Read

Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, wallstreet:online, TeamViewer: Exploding interest rates - look at brokers and financial stocks now!
The ten-year mortgage interest rate perfectly replicates current inflation. Unfortunately, it must be said, home builders must have missed out if they were unable to secure the historic low interest rate from 2021. Throughout last year, the conditions fluctuated between 0.60 and 0.95%. Currently, there is even a 2 before the decimal point. With a credit sum of EUR 500,000 per year, interest is easily EUR 5,000 on top, calculated on the entire running time, the real estate investment increases in price by more than EUR 50,000. And that at prices, which had doubled alone in the last 7 years in the metropolises. Those who now have money on the high side consume it or try their luck on the stock market. Banks and brokers are now back in vogue!Read

Siemens Healthineers, Perimeter Medical, Siemens, SAP - After BioNTech, now the push for MedTech shares!
The most significant positive share price developments in the last 12 months occurred in the biotech sector, especially among vaccine manufacturers such as BioNTech and Moderna. The stock market overlooked that pandemics, and the fight against them, offer short-term profit opportunities. The great battle against widespread diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer or other previously incurable indications progresses steadily. Their diagnosis and treatment require many types of technology, devices, processes, analysis tools, and intelligent software. Some methods certainly deserve the attribute "disruptive technology". We take a look at some blockbusters in the MedTech segment.Read

In 2021, no stocks were under as much pressure as the Asian tech giants. E-commerce giant Alibaba, for example, lost a full 50% year-on-year, while other stocks such as Baidu and Tencent suffered high double-digit losses in some cases. The situation has calmed down somewhat in recent weeks. The Chinese regulator is also gradually realizing that the heavy monitoring of its industry is significantly slowing down the growth prospects of its economy. The mood of the American SEC also seems to be brightening again. A delisting of Chinese stocks is probably off the table. We have selected the best stocks.Read

Due to various public easing measures, the Corona pandemic is increasingly fading into the background. It has long been a hot ride for the stock market, especially for vaccine producers, but now investors are shifting their focus to other stocks in the biotech segment. After all, there are still many diseases that confront humanity with unresolved mysteries, and the field of human medical research seems endless. We focus on interesting stocks from the sector, which corrected strongly in the wake of the Ukraine downturn but are now trending north again. These trends are still in their infancy.Read
