It is undisputed that the future belongs to renewable energies. New subsidy programs are passed almost weekly - especially in Europe. However, it is unclear whether now is the time to enter the market. Buy, or wait and see? Among other things, analysts do not agree on Nel ASA. After weak figures, JPMorgan has reduced the price target for the shares of the hydrogen specialist. And at Siemens Energy, too, opinions are divided. High inventory levels are a cause for concern. At the hydrogen company dynaCert, following personnel changes, there are again positive headlines due to a sales partnership and the hope for a share price recovery. Last week, the dynaCert CEO expressed confidence at an investor conference.Read

In weak stock market phases, the top performers of the future often emerge. The Plug Power share, among others, is currently shining due to its relative strength. The weak quarterly figures of the hydrogen specialist Plug Power seem to have been ticked off. Instead, the focus is on political support and a large order. The BYD share is also holding up excellently against the backdrop of the ongoing lockdown in China. There is a tailwind from Credit Suisse, and the new premium model is well received. At Almonty Industries, the CEO expressed confidence about the outlook at an investor conference. The Company is fully financed and will soon dominate the tungsten market outside China and Russia.Read

The swing market continues to keep investors on their toes. On Tuesday, encouraging economic data and the prospect of an imminent end to the lockdowns in China ensured a good mood and significantly rising prices. The speech by Fed Chairman Powell could not change this. Only one day later, the euphoria has already faded, and the statements of the central bank chief are being interpreted negatively. Powell had reiterated the Fed's determination to fight inflation. Therefore, operational impulses are needed for shares to rise again. BioNTech's stock got a small boost from the FDA's approval of its Corona vaccine as a booster shot for ages 5-11. But analysts are waiting for more. At Defense Metals, investors hope for more from today's CEO presentation after solid drilling results. At BASF, several analysts are reducing price targets at once and see possible additional costs in the billions.Read

Last week was disastrous for many technology stocks. In this environment, the Nel share showed strength and yesterday, it also performed positively in a relatively weak environment. That is because there is currently a tailwind for the hydrogen specialist from a wide variety of places: analysts, the European Union and even a king. At least analysts are also convinced of Aspermont. After the positive figures, investors are hoping for new impetus from the technology company's presentation at a virtual investor conference. At TeamViewer, analyst comments are mixed, but the price targets are attractive.Read

Is the rebound coming? After the heavy price losses of recent days and weeks, the market seems ripe for a countermovement. However, this would require a little more volume in the market. But then, especially companies that have not disappointed operationally should profit. BioNTech, for example, belongs to this group. The Company has published convincing figures, and analysts see up to 50% price potential. BYD's share price should also pick up speed again. Finally, the rapid shift to electric pureplay seems to be succeeding and HSBC has raised the price target. Gold was not a safe haven in the current correction. But it is worth looking at bombed-out stocks here as well. Desert Gold Ventures is one of them. The explorer has started a new drill program and secured financing.Read

The US Federal Reserve raised key interest rates by 0.5 percentage points on Wednesday to counteract rapidly rising inflation. After falling sharply in the run-up to the move, share prices worldwide subsequently rallied again. Yesterday, the DAX was back above 14,000 points. Analysts also commented positively on selected shares. For example, TeamViewer's quarterly figures were a positive surprise and analysts see significant upside potential. Goldman Sachs even sees a price potential of over 50% for Nel, and the hydrogen specialist has also landed the next order. However, more has to come. And in the case of the Asian media and technology company mm2 Asia, analysts see even more than 100% share price potential - partly due to the NFT marketplace. Elon Musk has now also discovered the hype surrounding NFTs for himself.Read

Rising interest rates, the war in Ukraine, lockdowns in China and recession fears: the current global mix is not conducive to rising share prices, but there is also positive news from companies. Among them is BYD. The largest Chinese manufacturer of electric cars has published quarterly figures and thus convinced analysts. In addition, BYD is celebrating the delivery anniversary of its flagship. The share of Altech Advanced Materials is also currently stepping on the gas. A study has confirmed that the planned production plant of the Heidelberg-based Company can be highly profitable. With the plant, Altech wants to stir up the market for lithium-ion batteries. BioNTech shareholders are still waiting for positive news - but there is hope.Read

Those who are currently betting on rising prices on the stock market need strong nerves. But some companies are worth a closer look. Among others, this applies to BioNTech. The Company is facing important deadlines, continues to earn billions with its Corona vaccine and has an attractive product pipeline. The analysts at Berenberg, for example, see doubling potential after the stock has bottomed out. Meta Materials has also formed a bottom formation, and at the same time, there was positive newsflow from the developer of revolutionary products. Varta shareholders have been hoping for this for some time, but in vain. The share is battered, and even the current financial injection cannot change that.Read

Chip stocks are having a hard time at the moment, although the market is undersupplied and will probably remain so for some time. This was also highlighted by figures from semiconductor equipment supplier ASML. Orders at the world's largest supplier of lithography systems to semiconductor manufacturers were around EUR 7 billion in the first three months of 2022, well above market expectations. In addition, ASML has indicated targets through 2025. The Company intends to expand production capacities in view of the high demand. Mercedes partner BrainChip should also benefit from these positive industry prospects. And, of course, industry heavyweights such as Nvidia and Infineon.Read

For many, hydrogen is a key factor in successfully implementing the energy transition. Accordingly, the technology is being promoted strongly. Since the start of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, hydrogen has again gained importance, and experts are overflowing with growth forecasts. First, in mid-March, the investment bank Jefferies published a forecast according to which the demand for hydrogen electrolyzers could rise to more than 400 gigawatts by 2030. By then, however, only 79 gigawatts would be available. So the supply gap is enormous. To fill it, hydrogen specialists like dynaCERT, Nel ASA and Plug Power could be in for golden times. And it gets even better. A new study puts the Jefferies forecast in the shade.Read
