ThyssenKrupp, Power Nickel, Varta - Is nickel becoming scarce?
Nickel is a versatile metal that plays an important role in various industries. One of the largest applications of nickel is in stainless steel production, where it provides hardness, corrosion resistance and heat resistance. Nickel has also always been a crucial factor for batteries. Since the rise of electromobility, the metal has gained even more significance. Due to its ability to store high energy densities, it contributes to improving performance. Using it in the cathode achieves higher capacities and longer lifetimes, which is essential for electric cars. Given the growing trend towards electromobility, nickel is becoming an important raw material for the energy transition.Read

Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Paving the way for hydrogen technology
Germany has shut down its nuclear power plants, and now the expansion of renewable energies is to be accelerated. But what happens to the surplus electricity when the sun shines all day? In order not to overload the grids, the energy is given away to neighbouring countries. In the future, it will be turned into green hydrogen that can cover the energy needs of industry and the transport sector. On May 25, the Federal Cabinet passed an amendment to the Energy Industry Act that defines the legal framework for a future hydrogen core network in Germany. Hydrogen technology will not only prevail in Germany. We, therefore, take a look at three international hydrogen companies.Read

Barrick Gold, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank - What happens after the US debt ceiling is lifted?
In the US, the Democrats and Republicans have agreed on a compromise in the debt dispute. This means that the US can take out more loans, which will ultimately result in an increasing money supply. This could further fuel inflation, while on the other hand, it could boost the gold price. In recent months, the gold price has soared due to the turbulence in the banking sector and was able to mark a new high. Nevertheless, this is remarkable because the FED had raised interest rates significantly, which would typically have tended to argue for a falling gold price. If interest rates do not rise further or even fall, this would be another positive signal for gold. We, therefore, look at 2 gold companies and analyze Deutsche Bank.Read

TUI, Manuka Resources, PayPal - Which turnaround candidate has the most potential?
Currently, the focus is on whether the US can reach an agreement in the debt dispute. If this does not succeed, there is the threat of a default that could shake the markets. This could push the gold price further up, which has already benefited from the banking crisis. But regardless of these uncertainties, some stocks are waiting for their turnaround. Shares such as MorphoSys and TeamViewer have already achieved it and, in some cases, more than doubled in value within a very short time. We have picked out three companies that also have this potential.Read

Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, Volkswagen - The battle for the battery of the future
The energy transition will not succeed without batteries, and electromobility cannot be implemented without them either. South Korea plans to invest USD 15 billion in the development of solid-state batteries for electric vehicles by 2030 in order to secure a long-term competitive advantage in the global market for electric vehicles. China is already the pioneer in electric cars and batteries for these vehicles. Experts in the American automotive industry fear a dependence on China for batteries and their raw materials. Since the automotive industry has embraced electromobility and the energy transition is being pushed forward faster, the field of battery development has become tremendously important. Therefore, today we will look at three companies dealing with this issue.Read

Plug Power, Almonty Industries, Rock Tech Lithium - Exploiting shortages
The Ukraine conflict has shown how dependent Europe is on Russian energy exports. In the future, green hydrogen should close this gap. However, the dependence of Western countries is not limited to the energy market. There are several critical raw materials for which the majority of the supply comes from China. Rare earths and tungsten are particularly noteworthy. Tensions between the US and China are increasing due to the Taiwan dispute and the activities of the BRICS countries. There are also shortages of refined lithium in electromobility, i.e. lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide. If investors want to profit from these shortages, they should bet on companies that are not caught between the fronts.Read

BYD, Orestone Mining, SMA Solar - Copper is the lifeline of the energy transition
Copper is an essential component of the energy transition. It has proven to be a key material for the production and operation of electric cars and solar plants because it is conductive, flexible and durable. It is also used in many other applications. The copper price has been in an intact upward trend since July last year. Copper serves as a leading indicator for the economy, and even if the price has recently come back a little, experts expect a further increase in the 2nd half of the year. Electric vehicles are on the rise worldwide and especially in China. The Middle Kingdom is hungry for raw materials. In the past few months, more gold has been bought. Today we look at three companies for which copper is important.Read

Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, Deutsche Bank - Gold in rally mode
The turmoil in the banking industry has recently hit Western Alliance Bancorporation. With the demise of Silicon Valley Bank, the gold price gained momentum and is heading for its all-time high. The constant increase of the money supply by the central banks and the threatening insolvency of the US support the gold price just as much as the gold purchases from China. In April, China collected another 8.1 tonnes of gold, about 10 tonnes less than in the previous month. In Q1, gold purchases by central banks were at record levels. Good for gold producers and explorers. We look at two today and see if Deutsche Bank has recovered after the turmoil.Read

MorphoSys, BioNxt Solutions, Pfizer - After the pandemic is before the pandemic
No sooner has the Corona pandemic officially ended than the West Nile virus is knocking on Germany's door. According to Christian Drosten, it could spread in Germany via the mosquitoes that transmit the virus. Experts are already predicting the next pandemic, but when it will come remains uncertain. But other diseases such as cancer, malaria and antibiotic resistance are also on the rise. These diseases are exacerbated by food production and ageing populations, especially in Western industrialized nations. It is here where biotech and pharmaceutical companies are needed to alleviate people's suffering. We look at three such companies today.Read

Mercedes-Benz, Canadian North Resources, Varta - Shortage of battery resources
Electromobility and the energy transition are essential to creating a more sustainable future. However, we need raw materials such as copper, nickel, cobalt and lithium to achieve these goals. These resources are an obstacle for many companies. Therefore, car companies are trying to secure access to these scarce resources to secure supplies for their production. In some cases, they are even developing their own batteries. The best example is Volkswagen, which wants to build 6 battery factories in Europe. So today, we look at Mercedes-Benz, analyze a possible supplier with Canadian North Resources and conclude with Varta, Germany's largest battery manufacturer.Read
