Many studies show that small listed companies, so-called small caps, generate higher returns over more extended periods than larger corporations. A broadly diversified small-cap portfolio, when combined with mid and large caps, increases returns and reduces risk in the overall context. Thus, small caps should not be a side issue when it comes to investing. We present three exciting and promising German small caps.Read

Hydrogen as an investment topic is on everyone's lips. No other chemical element has such a large occurrence in the universe (outside the earth's crust). But it could also be lucrative to look at the second most abundant element in the universe: helium. Helium has the lowest melting and boiling points of all elements. It is used in low-temperature technology, especially as a coolant for superconducting magnets, e.g., medical technology for MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) equipment. We present investment ideas associated with helium, ranging from the noble gas extraction to its use in certain products. Which stock has the most potential?Read

Energy supply and mobility are two crucial areas in our everyday life but also in the economy. Long misunderstood, hydrogen technology has finally moved into the spotlight, providing new answers to urgent questions. Hydrogen can be used universally, is easy to store, and can be converted back into electricity. But wherever there is potential and growth, there are occasional exaggerations. That is a normal course of events in the stock market world. We are convinced that the growth of the industry will continue sustainably and dynamically. We show you how to position yourself correctly now.Read

Lynas Rare Earths, Defense Metals, Arafura Resources - Rare Earths: still in time to get in before the boom!
China has dominated the rare earths market for a long time. A supply shortage in the People's Republic and a substantial increase in demand can lead to a massive price increase of the commodity group at any time. These price increases are then often reflected in the share price of relevant players. Rare earth metals are in demand in a wide range of industries and to close the emerging supply gap the production of rare earth metals must be increased outside of China. We present three opportunity stocks that will benefit from industry trends and scarcity prices as producers or prospective producers.Read

Steinhoff International, Blackrock Gold, Halo Labs - Watch out: Something is up with these penny stocks!
Stocks below the 1 dollar or euro mark, so-called penny stocks, are often sweepingly pigeonholed. Of course, there are some ailing companies or bankruptcy candidates among the penny stocks. When assessing the risk structure, it is also helpful to look at the nominal value. If this is only cents or fractions of cents anyway, then it is relatively "normal" that many companies are quoted in cents range. For investors and traders, however, the commitment in penny stocks has a decisive positive side effect. The mere fact that the share certificates are visually cheap makes them easier to buy, which increases trading volume and price movements. Thus, information that has not yet been adequately understood by the broad market and incorporated into the price is an excellent opportunity to make money. We present three penny stocks that should continue to gain in the near future.Read

The growth in the areas of electromobility, renewable energies and the multi-faceted technology industry is leading to a substantial increase in demand for raw materials. If expert forecasts are to be believed, demand will significantly exceed supply in the coming years, which can only lead to the conclusion that prices will continue to rise. Copper and lithium are good examples of this. Linked to the topic of energy are also the challenges regarding new storage media. We present three promising companies for which demand and growth play into the cards.Read
