During the BRICS summit, it was announced that six new countries will join the alliance on January 1, 2024. These countries include Saudi Arabia, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Argentina, Egypt, and Ethiopia. This development might not sit well with the United States, as it could threaten the dominance of the US dollar. In addition, there are tensions with China over Taiwan. In July, the Middle Kingdom limited exports of rare earths. China has now added fuel to the fire by banning government officials from using iPhones. Before this, the US restricted exports of NVIDIA's AI chips to the Middle East. Tensions are rising, making it a good time to look at three companies affected by these developments.Read

BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics, Bayer - Tiger mosquitoes, and rising Corona numbers bring biotech back in focus
Corona infections are already rising, even though autumn has not even begun. Hospitals are already fearing a high burden during the winter. Gerald Gaß, the Chairman of the Board of the German Hospital Federation, advised high-risk patients, their close contacts and healthcare workers to keep their flu and COVID-19 vaccinations up to date. Due to constant stress triggered by crises and workload-related pressures, the number of heart patients have also increased in recent years. At the end of August, entire neighborhoods and streets in Paris were closed off to spray insecticides against tiger mosquitoes, which spread diseases like dengue and Zika viruses, among others. This is reason enough for us to examine three companies fighting these threats.Read

The EU is determined to advance green hydrogen in Germany, and to support this goal, the EU Hydrogen Bank was allocated EUR 800 million in March. The auction process is set to commence in November, led by the European Executive Agency for Climate, Infrastructure and Environment. Subsidy payments may go up to EUR 4.50 per kg of green hydrogen. Any entity within the European Union capable of producing a specific quantity of green hydrogen at the lowest cost is eligible to participate. By 2030, the EU wants to produce 10 million tons of green hydrogen and import about the same amount. Germany also offers substantial incentives; Sunfire GmbH from Dresden, for example, received a whopping EUR 162 million in subsidies. We therefore analyze three hydrogen companies.Read

Currently, there are several hotspots of crisis around the world. There is the war between Russia and Ukraine, the efforts of the BRICS countries to free themselves from the supremacy of the US dollar, and the smoldering dispute between the US and China. Relations between the latter have deteriorated in recent years, partly because the US fears growing Chinese influence. However, the BRICS nations are blessed with raw materials that the West desperately needs. The list of critical metals is long. This is also true for Europe, which has had an energy problem above all since the Ukraine conflict. Efforts are being made to solve this. We have picked out one company from each of the various focal points.Read

The future of mobility is rapidly moving towards electrification, with more and more vehicles on the road being powered by electric motors. The trend towards electrification is expected to intensify in the coming years, bringing numerous benefits such as improved energy efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Talk of an "electric future" is gaining momentum in this context. The combination of technological progress and growing environmental awareness makes it clear that the "electric future" is not just a vision, but rather an unstoppable development that will fundamentally change our understanding of mobility and sustainability. Which companies will profit from this transformation?Read

Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier for the future that can be produced from renewable sources such as green electricity. Hydrogen can be used in various sectors such as industry, heating, or transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy security. Transport, in particular, emits a lot of emissions, making it a crucial focal point for action. The German federal government has already adopted a national hydrogen strategy to promote the development and use of hydrogen. There are similar efforts in the US and Europe. We look at three companies harnessing the power of hydrogen.Read

The electrification of the world is an important step in reducing dependence on fossil fuels and achieving climate goals. Energy storage systems and batteries are essential to balance the fluctuating generation from renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. They can store excess electricity and release it when needed. One promising technology for electricity storage and rechargeable batteries is lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries, which are safer and cheaper than traditional lithium-ion batteries and have a longer service life. Moreover, the first automakers are exploring the usability of LFP batteries. The market for energy storage is growing rapidly. We take a look at three companies that stand to benefit from developments in the energy storage market.Read

Pharmaceutical and biotech stocks are among the most volatile sectors in the financial markets. Single news stories about new developments or product announcements can not only cause short-term price swings but also have long-term implications, increasing both risk and opportunity for investors. If a breakthrough drug is developed, old preparations can become obsolete - this is good for the innovative company but detrimental to established market participants. As an investor, it is advisable to select specific companies and anticipate directional news through some research.Read

While the FED will probably take a break after its last interest rate hike to 5.5%, the ECB could be forced to turn the interest rate screw further, as inflation is only slowly declining. From May to June, the inflation rate in Germany climbed to 6.4%, only to fall back to 6.2% in July. The banking crisis seems to have been overcome after the turbulence between early February and mid-March. An end to the interest rate hike could have a positive effect on the gold price. Another catalyst is the meeting of the BRICS countries on August 22-24, which could decide on a new gold-backed currency. For growth companies, higher interest rates are poison as borrowed money is now much more expensive. We have selected one company from each segment.Read

The world of finance is characterized by constant fluctuations and changes. This dynamic, which is a source of uncertainty for some investors, can also provide opportunities to profit for well-informed shareholders. One such approach to profiting from the ups and downs of the financial markets is the art of "Buy the Dip" - taking advantage of setbacks or downturns in stock prices to invest cheaply in promising companies. This approach requires a solid understanding of market behavior and the ability to distinguish between temporary price corrections and long-term value potential. We have selected three candidates where an entry could be worthwhile.Read
