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.

High voltage is the order of the day here: Rheinmetall, Hensoldt, Kleos Space, and Kion under power!
In the current environment, good advice is expensive. Some fundamental analyses provide the most favorable valuation parameters in 5 years, while at the same time, the depressive environment is causing one major sell-off after another. Not even a year ago, equities were even considered "no alternative" by banks and fund managers in pension provisioning. Although this is true in the very long term, this calculation only works if the portfolio management system above it correctly assesses the big waves and sets the proper risk ratio. When looking at individual stocks, it is worth first looking at some bombed-out shares.Read

Despite all the gloom, the capital market offers plenty of opportunities every day. The Varta shares experienced a crash of over 80% in only 12 months but could also swing up by 15% within 1 week. Such movements are part of a revaluation that many stocks are now undergoing. The experienced investor is not bothered by this because, fortunately, there are upward exaggerations as well as downward ones, and both provide buying opportunities. The only question that remains is whether the level reached could already be down. Fundamental analysis helps here, but chart technology also provides valuable clues for timing. We take a closer look at the following stocks.Read

Hydrogen - the fuel for transportation and logistics stocks: Plug Power, dynaCERT, ThyssenKrupp, and Daimler Truck with imagination
Hydrogen technology finally seems to be gaining momentum on the industrial side. Time and again, companies such as Plug Power or Nel ASA are reporting various orders from the private and public sectors. Unfortunately, conventional diesel drives still dominate the transportation and logistics sector. However, the exhibitors at the IAA Transportation in Hannover have quite different goals: They want to lead truck transport into a climate-neutral logistics era. This requires a willingness to invest and appropriate technological support. Fleet operators, meanwhile, are already shuffling their feet and waiting for the producers to give the green light. There are great opportunities for investors to be involved right from the start.Read

E-mobility and hydrogen: BYD, Almonty Industries, Thyssen, Nel ASA - Things are really starting to happen now!
In the current geopolitical constellation, the globalized world is showing its real weaknesses. For commodity-dependent Europe and especially Germany, the situation even presents itself as a medium-term showstopper for industry because as winter approaches, governments will have to decide where the remaining gas reserves may be drawn from. But if there is not enough, the decision will likely be made in the direction of the population, and the industry will then have to look for alternatives. Despite the cost of electricity, e-mobility seems to be finding its way, and hydrogen is also slowly getting off the ground. What does this mean for individual stocks?Read

At the moment, shares are becoming cheaper rather than more expensive. What is unusual is not the fact that prices are falling, what is disturbing is the phase of falling valuations that has now been going on for some time. In the current environment of rising capital market interest rates, refinancing is also becoming more difficult for companies, and it now has its price again. Volkswagen AG from Wolfsburg owns many stakes in valuable automotive brands. In order not to let the debt increase further, parts of the holdings are now being placed on the stock exchange. Not a bad way to fill the coffers again. What should investors look out for now?Read

Higher, faster, further: BYD, Infinity Stone, Porsche, Varta - The energy transition stock portfolio is wanted!
The words "energy turnaround" are used a lot in public. The majority understand it to mean the use of GreenTech to generate energy while avoiding dangerous climate gases. Unfortunately, the leaks from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is not in operation, are leaking the amount of gas into the atmosphere every day that the state of Denmark consumes in an entire week. This makes us painfully aware of how strongly warlike actions counteract efforts to save the climate. On the stock market, it is important to turn our gaze away from current events and toward a more peaceful future, where good ideas for sustainable change will also be rewarded. Which stocks belong in the portfolio?Read

Energy for the stock market! Siemens Energy, TubeSolar, Nel ASA, Plug Power - Green innovations are needed now!
Many innovative companies are working on sustainable solutions to reduce the colossal dependence on fossil fuels, sometimes with success and sometimes with less noteworthiness. For investors, it is important to note that most of the ideas have German engineering behind them, a testament to our high-performing education and training system. Some very creative start-ups go public quickly and boldly to refinance themselves. Other large companies are already long-listed and now have to watch their formerly lush valuations melt away in the sun. The selection of portfolio stocks is important, so it is always advisable to mix standard stocks with hopeful ones, which lowers the risks. We make a selection.Read

The daily analysis of stock market movements may not be an absolute joy for many investors at the moment. Nevertheless, in addition to numerous burdens, there are also bright spots. The warehouse logistics expert Kion is a long-term growth stock available now at 80% below its high. At rare earth explorer Defense Metals, initial drilling is delivering good results. GreenTech stocks JinkoSolar and Nordex should benefit from the boom in alternative energy generation for many years to come. As the saying goes, "Buy when the guns are roaring!" - they have been doing that for seven months now. Is the next rally already lurking around the corner?Read

The green wave keeps rolling! Siemens Energy, Nel ASA, Alpha Copper, Plug Power - Copper now at 7,800!
Not enough copper is being mined! Despite this, the price has recently corrected by about 25%. It is mainly due to the worse economic expectations for the coming years. The orders are therefore falling, and the price is also falling slightly. However, the warehouses, due to many strong basic trends such as electromobility, will soon ensure that there will be a renewed shortage. These recurring economic trends, the increasingly difficult supply chain issue and the now high-interest rates are causing high planning uncertainty. Ultimately, they also weigh on mine output locally. We look at the opportunities and risks of the green wave!Read

For the first time in recent history, an announced appearance by Putin did not take place. In the morning yesterday, the news finally rang out that Russia had been so afraid of for the past few weeks: Putin announced partial mobilization. It likely involves an additional 300,000 troops who will now go into mobilization. News about the war apparently only impacts the stock market if it also conceals economic news, because the market rose despite expected escalations. However, the consensus now seems to be that a sharp slowdown in economic growth is expected worldwide. Currently, many stocks are adjusting to a new view: interest rates are back, so capitalization models are recalculating, especially for growth stocks. Where should attention be paid now?Read
