As the world increasingly focuses on transitioning to a low-carbon future, a complex picture of tomorrow's energy supply is emerging - a finely balanced mosaic of renewables, the gradual withdrawal from coal and the continued need for oil. Solar energy, wind power and hydropower form the backbone of renewables, and governments and companies worldwide are relying on their expansion to reduce emissions. At the same time, coal-fired power plants are on the verge of being phased out, as they are among the biggest emitters in the climate balance sheet. Despite the transformation, oil continues to play an important role in the global economy. It is an energy source that will still be needed in the long term for the manufacture of products, in transportation and in sectors where alternatives are not yet fully developed.Read

Against the backdrop of climate change and dwindling fossil fuel resources, the world is at a turning point that necessitates a redesign of energy supply. Hydrogen is emerging as the centerpiece of a future low-carbon economy, especially in the transportation sector. This sector, which is currently heavily dependent on fossil fuels, accounts for a significant proportion of global greenhouse gas emissions. In a world seeking sustainable, long-term energy solutions, hydrogen could provide the answer to some of the most pressing challenges of our time. Today, we look at three companies working to reduce emissions using hydrogen.Read

Commerzbank, Globex Mining, Vonovia - Interest Rates, Commodities, Real Estate - Where is the most potential?
When it comes to investing one's money, investors have various options. Personal preferences and different risk tolerances play a crucial role in decision-making. Should one choose the security of a bank with fixed interest rate products, or does one venture into the potentially lucrative terrain of the commodities markets, where choices range between gold, oil and many other options? The third option would be real estate, the ownership of which is equated with value stability and protection against inflation. Experts recommend a diversified approach across these different areas to cushion fluctuations. We take a look at an interesting company from each sector.Read

In an era where energy not only needs to be generated but also intelligently managed, batteries and energy storage systems are increasingly taking centre stage. They are the inconspicuous heroes of the energy transition that will significantly shape our understanding of sustainability. While renewable energy from sun, wind and water is increasingly feeding into our power grid, reliable storage solutions are the key to using energy where and when it is actually needed. We look at Altech Advanced Materials, a company offering two exciting solutions for the future, and examine BYD, the top dog of electromobility alongside Tesla. Lastly, we explain why JinkoSolar can benefit from future energy storage systems.Read

In the dynamic environment of the stock market, it is often significant movements in individual shares that attract the attentive eye of investors. Volatile securities lure investors with the promise of quick profits, but they may signal more than just short-term market fluctuations. When stocks start to move and deviate from their usual trading patterns, it can indicate fundamental changes in the business environment, industry-specific developments or macroeconomic turning points. For the savvy investor, this might be the opportune moment when promising entry opportunities reveal themselves. However, caution is advised: Only those prepared to look behind the scenes and analyze the factors behind the volatility can truly profit from market movements.Read

The new year has barely begun, and investors are looking for the winning stocks for the coming year. Investors should keep an eye on the critical raw material tungsten, which Almonty Industries produces. There is significant dependence on China and Russia in this sector. The areas of application are diverse and range from electric cars, which Volkswagen builds, to medical products, metal alloys, industrial applications, electronic devices and the defense industry, where Rheinmetall operates. In times of increasing conflicts and escalating trade disputes between the US and China, essential resources such as tungsten are increasingly coming to the fore. We look at which of the three shares could take off in 2024.Read

As the end of the year approaches, the savvy equity investor begins to optimize their equity portfolio for tax purposes. During this time, investors are particularly keen to review their investments and make strategic adjustments to minimize the tax burden. This approach, often referred to as "tax-loss harvesting" or "loss offsetting", involves the clever realization of losses in order to reduce capital gains tax due on profits made in the same year. This means that shares that have not performed so well over the course of the year are often sold off again in December. In the new year, the selling pressure disappears, and the shares can start their rebound. Today, we are looking at three potential candidates.Read
