For more than twenty years, the Cologne native has been intensively involved with the stock market, both professionally and privately. He is particularly passionate about national and international small and micro caps.
He first came into contact with the stock market and shares during his banking apprenticeship. After completing this in 2000, he gained his first journalistic experience in the editorial department of a financial portal. During his subsequent studies in business administration, he also worked in the area of investor relations.
Since then, he has remained true to the capital markets and is excited to report on every newly discovered interesting story - as well as on long-standing success stories.

Warren Buffett loves oil stocks. This year, he has invested billions in the industry. Chevron and Occidental Petroleum are among Berkshire Hathaway's seven largest holdings, and together they are even number two in the portfolio after Apple. Buffett likes business models with high cash flows and stable demand. And oil stocks offer both. This also fits with the statement by Goldmann Sachs that despite the high investments in renewable energies, the share of fossil energy has remained stable above 80% in the last 10 years. If you want to do it like investor legend Buffett, you should look at oil stocks such as BP, Shell or the almost ridiculously cheaply valued Canadian newcomer Saturn Oil & Gas. However, the German K+S is also hooked on oil, and the share is trending friendly.Read

E-car specialists like BYD and Tesla have had them for a long time: their own gigafactories. German automakers have long neglected their own battery production. It is surprising because, with electromobility, energy storage is becoming the heart of every car. Here in Germany, Porsche is now stepping on the gas and accelerating the development of its battery production. This could become a model for the entire VW Group. Unfortunately, German battery hopeful Varta is again not involved in the project. The Company seems to be making no headway in its search for partners. No matter who builds the batteries, companies like Infinity Stone Ventures stand to benefit. The specialist for critical raw materials is currently stepping on the gas in its projects, and the positive newsflow should continue.Read

Rarely have there been as many global crises and challenges as there are right now. In addition to the war in Ukraine, there is Corona, an arguably inevitable recession, and the energy crisis - not to mention long-standing challenges such as the fight against cancer and climate change. Companies want to help solve these problems, and BioNTech is one of these companies. The Wiesbaden-based Company was not only successful in the fight against COVID-19. They are currently taking on cancer. And the CEO has recently been very positive. Almonty Industries wants to help reduce dependence on raw materials from China and Russia, and one Company has already given it long-term purchase guarantees. And Plug Power wants to help solve the energy crisis and fight climate change. The recent numbers have disappointed, but analysts see upside potential. We look at the current performance of the three problem solvers.Read

Climate change, high gas prices, high oil prices and dependence on "difficult" energy suppliers: There are many reasons why hydrogen and electromobility are among the undisputed topics of the future. Shares from these sectors are also among the absolute favorites of investors. But despite this, many share prices are currently on a downward trend. These include the shares of Nel ASA, BYD and dynaCERT. Is now the time to enter? There is an analyst recommendation for Nel, but the outlook for the quarterly figures next week is causing fear. BYD is shining with record sales and wants to take a division public. dynaCERT's technology for reducing CO2 emissions is being recognized more and more. The board expects a strong current quarter, and the discussion about climate targets in the transport industry speak for the Canadians.Read

Buy or sell? It is not only the BASF share that is currently the subject of clearly differing opinions. While the gas price brake plans on Monday caused euphoria among investors and correspondingly rising prices for the shares of the chemical company, analysts from Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley continue to express pessimism. Experts are similarly cautious about the prospects for TUI. UBS even sees the share of the tourism group on the way to becoming a penny stock. Analysts are more optimistic about BioNTech, but the share is not making any headway at the moment. In contrast, experts see massive upside potential in the biotech gem Cardiol Therapeutics. Cash is now equal to market capitalization, and drug development is making progress.Read

Bear market rally, or is the worst over? Either way, equities are trending in a friendly direction this week. This applies to value as well as technology, corporations and small caps. And analysts see further upside potential. Goldmann Sachs, for example, recommends Deutsche Bank shares as one of the sector favorites. But analysts at RBS have a much lower price target. In contrast, analysts see a price potential of over 400% for the space company Kleos Space. The Company is well financed, and in the coming year, sales could increase fivefold. Like investors, BASF's share price opportunities are also hotly debated among experts. The assessments range from sell to buy. The decisive factor for the operating development and the share will be how the gas supply situation will be in winter.Read

Hydrogen stocks such as Nel, Plug Power and First Hydrogen made significant gains yesterday. Nel is benefiting from a million-dollar grant from the US Department of Defense, and the stock is fighting a downward trend. First Hydrogen, the year's top performer, is also driven by European expansion, its own fueling station network, and a compelling presentation at an investor conference. With the positive industry sentiment, the share prices of Plug Power and ITM Power are also picking up - in some cases, by double digits. Whether as a drive system for vehicles or as a substitute for natural gas, experts believe that hydrogen has a bright future. Governments are promoting it heavily, and companies are also making progress.Read

The profit warning was a shock for Kion shareholders. Accordingly, the share price halved to EUR 20 in September alone. Now analysts are also slashing their estimates. The price targets for the forklift manufacturer are falling accordingly. Berenberg surprises with a high price target for the BioNTech share. At the same time, the analysts emphasize their hope for a continued generous dividend. Shareholders could thus be kept in good spirits until the next blockbuster. The roadshow of Aspermont in Germany has probably also created a good mood. At least the share price has jumped. The current consolidation could be an entry opportunity. Analysts see a price potential of over 200%.Read

Growth stocks are currently under particular pressure. But this can also create opportunities for bargain hunters. Perhaps in the case of Varta? The share has crashed sharply after a profit warning. Now, the first analyst has upgraded the share from "sell" to "buy". But even his reasoning does not sound like a new growth story. Plug Power also tends to live on the hope of growth. While the new production facility is technically a milestone, it needs more. In contrast, things are going well at Pathfinder Ventures. The still unknown tourism company is profiting from the camping boom in North America, and its valuation is anything but expensive.Read

Is the rebound coming for the Nel share, or are all the dams breaking? At the moment, this is the situation with the popular hydrogen specialist. After the quarterly figures, Credit Suisse, among others, lowered their thumbs and the share is also clearly battered on the chart. The latter also applies to Viva Gold. Operationally, things are going well for the Canadians. Can a stabilizing gold price turn investors' attention to the low valuation? Investors have been debating for years whether Steinhoff is favorably valued or not. Recently, the share price jumped significantly. What is going on?Read
