2023 was a challenging year for pharmaceutical and biotech companies. After the boom years of the Corona pandemic, many companies went into a tailspin. But not just vaccine manufacturers were hit; others were dragged down too. The markets are currently volatile. MorphoSys has seen a peak gain of 145% since the beginning of the year - but is currently only up 35%. Cardiol Therapeutics has also gained over 140% and has recently consolidated. The share is currently up 74% since the beginning of the year. Only Bayer's performance curve is pointing downwards. The share is currently worth 34% less than on January 2. We look at where the rebound will start first after the consolidations.Read

At the end of October, the mood among investors was gloomy. Many indices were under pressure and had lost more than 10% of their value. Since October 28, the mood has changed, and the markets have rallied significantly. One of the reasons is undoubtedly the Fed's interest rate pause. After three weeks on the upswing, the indices are approaching new highs. Nevertheless, there are still stocks that have not yet been able to benefit from the upward trend. We have picked out three interesting stocks that offer plenty of long-term potential.Read

The mobility landscape has changed drastically in recent years. Traditional internal combustion engines are increasingly being replaced by more environmentally friendly alternatives such as electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cells. These changes will also have far-reaching implications for transportation, altering how we move. Which technology will prevail? We look at three companies with different approaches to the topic and assess which companies are well-positioned for the future.Read

For a long time, hydrogen was considered a real alternative to fossil fuels, especially in freight transport, as refueling times were significantly shorter than electric trucks, and the range was often greater. However, this requires suitable infrastructure and a sufficient supply of green hydrogen. Plug Power aims to provide this infrastructure. However, the Company may run out of money before achieving this goal. This creates opportunities for providers of alternative solutions, such as dynaCERT's HydraGEN™ technology, which enables fuel savings and reduces emissions. Daimler Truck could also benefit from the current situation with its electric trucks. We take a closer look at all three companies.Read

When Plug Power, the largest company in the new hydrogen technology, announces that it will likely run out of money in 12 months, it is a bombshell for the entire industry. If the big player cannot become profitable, there appear to be technological problems. The rollout is likely to take longer. But the energy problems worldwide still exist. This increases the opportunities for solar energy, the oil industry and possibly wind power. We look at one company from each sector and examine their future prospects.Read

Despite several interest rate hikes, the price of gold has recently risen to over USD 2,000 again. Even though the latest increase coincided with the attack on Israel, this is unlikely to be the reason for it. Instead, the high demand from central banks is responsible for the steady gold price. Within the first 9 months, the central banks bought a whopping 800 tons of gold. That is a new record. The geopolitical tensions could also turn more and more private individuals into so-called gold bugs, who are making provisions for crises and assuming that gold will continue to rise in the long term. As the Fed has paused interest rates, this could give the gold price a further boost.Read

BioNTech and Bayer under pressure - Defence Therapeutics, on the other hand, with good results. Where is it worth investing?
There are currently big losers in the pharma and biotech sector among the companies that were the biggest beneficiaries of the Coronavirus Crisis. Sales at Pfizer/BioNTech are plummeting, and the entire sector is under pressure. In addition, there are patent disputes and increasing cost pressures from health insurance companies, especially in Europe. There are also high bureaucratic hurdles in the EU, meaning that more and more specialists prefer to emigrate to North America. Bayer's pharmaceuticals division is doing well, but the Company is struggling with the legal disputes surrounding the Monsanto takeover. In contrast to the first two companies mentioned, the news from Defence Therapeutics is consistently positive. We examine where it is worth getting in.Read

Phosphate is an important nutrient for plants and animals and is used in agriculture as a fertilizer. It is also used in the food industry as an additive. Recently, however, the raw material has been needed in the high-tech environment. Battery manufacturers have an increased need for phosphate to produce lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are already used in some electric vehicles. The phosphate content in these batteries contributes to their stability and durability. If this technology becomes standard in all electric vehicles, demand will increase dramatically. So today, we take a look at fertilizer producer K+S, introduce a future producer in First Phosphate, and look at how Volkswagen is progressing in the area of electromobility.Read

Nickel has undergone a remarkable transformation in recent years and has become a key component of electromobility. While the demand for environmentally friendly vehicles is steadily increasing, nickel is becoming increasingly important as an indispensable component in batteries. Nickel contributes to achieving higher energy density in batteries, which translates into greater driving range. It also allows for a reduction in the amount of cobalt in the batteries, making electric vehicles even more environmentally friendly. Therefore, we look at a future nickel producer and analyze Mercedes-Benz and BYD in terms of opportunities and risks.Read
