Since last Thursday, war has been raging in the euro, and the world has been spinning faster. Over the weekend, Chancellor Scholz announced a new defense and energy policy for Germany in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The German armed forces is to receive EUR 100 billion as special assets. In addition, according to Chancellor Scholz, NATO's 2% target is to be met in the future. Energy independence is to be increased by, among other things, two German LNG terminals. Finance Minister Lindner calls renewables "freedom energies." Accordingly, shares in Nordex and Rheinmetall were in strong demand on Monday. The price of gold also picked up, with Triumph Gold's shares posting double-digit gains.Read

The Ukraine crisis is currently shaking up the capital markets. But such a time also offers the opportunity to analyze one's portfolio and make changes where necessary. The assessments of analysts can help here. With TeamViewer, Allianz and Altech Advanced Materials, we present opinions on companies of different sizes and sectors. The figures and outlook of insurance giant Allianz have convinced analysts. TeamViewer's stock has recovered from its lows in recent weeks, but analysts are still predominantly cautious. When people think of German battery technology, they usually think of Varta. But there is also an exciting microcap. Game-changer potential is seen in Altech.Read

Growth stocks are having a hard time in the current stock market environment. The Ukraine crisis, rising interest rates and high inflation mean that investors prefer value stocks. Even the long-celebrated beneficiaries of the energy transition have taken a significant hit. However, the long-term positive outlook for the sector has not changed. Today we look at Nel ASA, Plug Power and dynaCERT. At dynaCERT, the correction has been going on for a year now, and management changes can provide new impetus. At Nel, the outgoing CEO is selling shares in a big way, causing renewed investor frustration. Plug Power, on the other hand, shows strength and expands into an exciting area through an acquisition and partnerships.Read

Tech is out. In uncertain times, investors turn to conservative stocks. This is the case at present. The environment is characterized by the Ukraine crisis, high inflation and rising interest rates. Numerous high-flyers from the technology sector have been brought back down to earth. At the same time, conservative shares from the financial sector, for example, are making a comeback. Deutsche Bank is one of them. The share has made significant gains in recent weeks. The same applies to the shares of Mercedes-Benz, where analysts see further room for improvement. In addition, the automotive sector is benefiting from a failed emergency motion by the Green Party. In recent weeks, water treatment specialist Memiontec has also held up well, and investors speculate on an upward breakout.Read

The Ukraine crisis, inflation and rising interest rates currently have the capital markets firmly in their grip. But even in these uncertain times, companies surprise positively, and there are exciting investment opportunities. For example, the shares of TUI and Steinhoff were up on Tuesday. News-driven gains. At Steinhoff, an important deadline for creditors expires in May. After two years of the pandemic, the desire to travel for Germans is greater than ever. The tourism group TUI benefits from this, and Lufthansa will continue to fly to Mallorca with the Boeing 747. The exciting real estate company Hong Lai Huat offers investors an interesting opportunity tomorrow, February 17.Read

The electric car is currently outpacing the combustion engine: around 350,000 pure e-cars were registered in Germany alone in 2021. According to the Center of Automotive Management (CAM), this means that the market share has almost doubled to 13% in one year. Germany is now the third-largest single market for pure electric vehicles after China and the United States. However, according to CAM, China is ahead with around 2.7 million electric vehicles. Nevertheless, due to global subsidies, the trend toward electromobility will continue, creating opportunities for investors. The winners in electromobility include battery and raw material producers such as Varta and Almonty Industries. Demand for hydrogen - and therefore Nel - will also increase. All three stocks have lost significant ground. But there are positive developments. Is it worth getting in now?Read

Lithium and gold stocks have little in common at first glance. The lithium sector has undergone a severe correction in recent weeks. Albemarle, for example, has lost around 30% in value. In the case of the 2021 investor darling, Standard Lithium, it was almost 50%. What lasted only a few weeks in the case of lithium has dragged on for months in the case of gold shares. Again, industry heavyweights like Barrick Gold and young producers like Alerio Gold are trading well below their highs. And this brings us to the common thread. Both lithium and gold stocks appear ripe for a rebound. The lithium price is trading near all-time highs, and gold is trading back above USD 1,800. In addition, Barrick has released top numbers. Alerio Gold and Standard Lithium are also worth a closer look.Read

Is Omicron the beginning of the end of the Corona pandemic? Not only stock market players are asking themselves this question. Because as it seems, the virus variant is more contagious but seemingly leads to less severe sickness. As a result, the shares of vaccine manufacturers such as BioNTech, Moderna and Valneva have recently suffered. However, there are positive things to report, especially for BioNTech. While the Mainz-based Company is optimizing its vaccine for the Omicron variant, there is also positive news from the USA. Not only the COVID-19 vaccine is in demand worldwide, but also diamonds. Most recently, Israel reported a significant increase in demand. Tiffany & Co. partner Diamcor is benefiting from this demand. JinkoSolar's share price is heading north again in the first few days of trading after the heavy losses before Christmas. The IPO of the subsidiary is taking shape.Read

Hope and despair can exist close to each other. The same is true for the stock market. In the case of Steinhoff, there have been positive reports in recent months. It seems that the German-South African group can be saved after all. Accordingly, the share has multiplied. The security of CoinSmart is still far away from this. But there are good reasons why the price of the crypto platform could rise this year. There was certainly despair among one or the other shareholder of TeamViewer in 2021. The Company has forward-looking software but has squandered a lot of trust. Read more here.Read

Even though 2021 felt like it was all about COVID-19 and vaccine manufacturers such as BioNTech, Valneva and Novavax, the energy and mobility revolution was one of the dominant themes. Evidence of this is the boom in e-cars in Germany. The Association of International Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (VDIK) estimates that one in four new cars in this country will be electric in 2021. There is a good chance that hydrogen, lithium & Co. will continue to electrify investors in the coming year. Here we present three companies benefiting from the megatrends but whose share prices have come back significantly from their highs: Hydrogen specialist Nel ASA, battery pioneer Varta and future tungsten giant Almonty.Read
