The energy and mobility turnaround is in full swing. Nevertheless, shares from this sector have also taken a beating in the stock market quake of recent weeks. Today we look at companies from this future market with current news. Alarm bells are ringing at Varta. A few days before the annual general meeting, an insider sells shares and generates an amount in the double-digit millions. At the same time, important news is imminent. Plug Power has recently seen a positive news flow. Nevertheless, the share has lost considerable ground - but according to an analyst, triple-digit price gains await. Such gains do not seem unrealistic for Altech Advanced Materials either if battery technology can be revolutionized.Read

Good news for oil producers such as BP, ExxonMobil and Saturn Oil & Gas: Goldman Sachs has raised its oil price forecasts and expects prices to remain high. The price target for Brent crude was raised from USD 125 to USD 140 per barrel. The reasons given for this are unresolved structural bottlenecks. The oil giant ExxonMobil shot up to a new all-time high in the wake of the news. For Saturn Oil & Gas, a takeover has come at the right time. The Canadian producer wants to double its production again. Nel is also likely to benefit, as the high prices for fossil energies are making it easier to switch to renewables. For BASF, however, the Goldman forecast is bad news, but analysts see considerable upside potential.Read

Hydrogen or battery, which is better? This question is often asked. The answer is simple: both technologies will play an essential role in the energy and mobility revolution. While batteries seem to be gaining ground in the passenger car sector, hydrogen has numerous other potential applications, such as commercial vehicles and ships. Plug Power and BYD put exclamation points on incoming orders and vehicle sales. At the beginning of the value chain are commodity companies like Nevada Copper, which has now suffered a setback on its way to becoming a copper producer. However, the price slide could also represent an opportunity for investors.Read

Asian stocks have been under pressure in recent months due to the Chinese government's strict Zero-COVID strategy with hard lockdowns like in the economic hub of Shanghai. Now they could benefit from easing and a stimulus package. In order to achieve the GDP growth target of 5.5% in 2022, the government in Beijing has put together an economic stimulus package. With 33 measures, private consumption - including the purchase of cars and household appliances - is to be boosted and investments in major projects promoted. It is not only Chinese stocks such as Alibaba and JinkoSolar that should benefit from this. The real estate sector in the entire Asian region should also breathe a sigh of relief and, with it, the Hong Lai Huat share.Read

BioNTech shareholders are in for a windfall. A dividend of EUR 2 per share is to be approved at today's Annual General Meeting. Also on the agenda is a share buyback program with a volume of up to USD 1.5 billion. In addition, analysts at Goldman Sachs have commented positively on the German biotech champion. Meta Materials shareholders are still a long way from a dividend. But the hot stock has announced exciting details about its fight against stroke. At Nordex, by contrast, supply chain problems, plant closures and cyberattacks dominate the headlines. But analysts see the light at the end of the tunnel - and rightly so?Read

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
