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.

Things are getting exciting for shareholders of Nel ASA. The hydrogen pioneer will publish its figures for the first quarter tomorrow. A current buy recommendation does not help the share price. At least the expectations for the figures are anything but high at the moment. Is there anything positive to report on the order book? Plug Power recently placed an order with a competitor. In the battery sector, Volkswagen has caused a sensation. The Wolfsburg-based company has announced its intention to build its largest battery factory to date in Canada. The Canadian government is subsidizing the project and expects thousands of new jobs at VW and its suppliers. The latter could include Canadian North Resources. The Company is currently developing a vast area and has already found copper, nickel, cobalt, platinum, and palladium there. Another drilling programme has just been launched. It is hoped that lithium will also be found.Read

Changing of the guard in the world's largest car market: for the first time since the 1980s, the Volkswagen brand is no longer number 1 in China. BYD sold more vehicles in the Middle Kingdom than VW in the first quarter. And while BYD sold only electric models, the German manufacturer also sold combustion engines. If the world's largest car market is to be a blueprint for Europe and the USA, Volkswagen, BMW & Co. are in for hard times. But the latest sales figures also show that demand for batteries is not going to collapse any time soon, as one or two experts predicted for this year. Those who want to bet on the raw materials for batteries should look at Manuka Resources. The Australians also have a second hot iron in the fire with gold projects. And what is the German battery pioneer Varta doing? Next week should be exciting.Read

What is going on at Plug Power? Hydrogen shares are not among the investor favourites at the moment, but all dams are breaking at the US company. The share is now trading below USD 10 and EUR 9. Is an improvement in sight? The situation is different at SMA Solar. The share price of the German solar company is higher than it has been for 10 years. This year alone, it went up more than 60%. Time for a breather? The Almonty Industries share has taken such a breather in recent weeks. However, the tungsten producer is doing well operationally, and analysts see almost 200% upside potential as the Company faces a milestone.Read

Gold and silver continue to develop strongly. The prices for the precious metals are shooting upward this week. Price targets for gold ranging from USD 2,500 to USD 3,000 are creating a good mood. And new all-time highs are also expected for silver. Meanwhile, shares in the sector can also profit from this. Barrick Gold looks very interesting from a chart perspective, and analysts will probably have to adjust the assumed gold price upward in their earnings forecasts. The second sector giant Newmont, on the other hand, has opened the takeover carousel. Therefore, it should only be a matter of time before the explorers also jump on board. Blackrock Silver, for example, has exciting silver and lithium projects. And all of them are in the US. Experts also see initial entry opportunities in "concrete gold". After the sell-off, analysts recommend investing in Vonovia real estate shares.Read

The TeamViewer share has put on an impressive rally in the past six months. Since October, the stock has gained almost 100% and is trading at over EUR 15. From JP Morgan's point of view, this is too much. The analysts expect little growth momentum and recommend the share with "Underweight". The target price is EUR 12. In contrast, the shares of Infineon, HelloFresh and Aspermont are recommended as buys. HelloFresh and Aspermont, in particular, did not participate in the tech rally of the past months and have catch-up potential. Experts even see more than 100% price potential.Read

Electromobility is unbearable. The US electric pioneer delivered 422,875 vehicles in the first three months of the year. This figure slightly exceeded analyst forecasts of 421,000 units. In the Gigafactory in Grünheide, 5,000 electric cars are coming off the production line every week, making about 250,000 per year. If Tesla has its way, there could be 1 million e-cars annually in a few years. But Tesla is not the only winner in electric mobility. BYD is also convincing in terms of sales, and analysts are raising the price target. More e-cars also mean more batteries. First Phosphate wants to profit from this. Once the current capital increase is completed, there is an opportunity to get in. A cable manufacturer should also be in a good position, but unfortunately, shareholders at Leoni face a total loss.Read

Are we currently seeing a change of favourites in cleantech stocks, particularly in the hydrogen sector? With Plug Power and Nel ASA, investors seem to be losing hope in profitable business models. Yet Plug Power has just reported a record. In contrast, First Hydrogen is going from strength to strength. While the commercial hydrogen vehicles are currently being tested in practice, the next generation of vehicles has been presented. Analysts continue to regard the share as undervalued. SMA Solar is increasingly becoming a cleantech powerhouse. The solar specialist is expanding its product portfolio in the smart home market and wants to get involved in the hydrogen sector.Read

Concrete gold? Real estate stocks are currently in an absolute panic. The share of Germany's industry leader Vonovia recovered somewhat yesterday, but an end to the downward slide is not in sight. Analysts are also skeptical. The range of price targets is broad, and there is already speculation about an (emergency) capital increase. So buy or sell? The Plug Power share could also use some buying. From a chart perspective, the situation is critical. Fuel cells for smaller forklifts are now being offered. The situation is different at Barrick Gold. The group's share is about to break out to the upside. Price targets for gold of USD 3,000 provide for a good mood. Tocvan Ventures should also benefit from this. The gold and silver explorer published news about its project in Mexico yesterday, and the stock is waking from its slumber - there appears to be further air to the upside.Read

Being active in a market of the future is no guarantee for success. Shareholders of Varta had to painfully realize this in recent months. The German battery group has indeed reached an agreement with banks on restructuring. However, there can be no talk of a liberating blow. According to analysts, the share could continue to slide. Experts are also somewhat cautious about Nel ASA. The hydrogen specialist's chart does not look rosy either. In contrast, dynaCERT could be due for a revaluation in the current year. Experts believe the Greentech company has set the course for a commercial breakthrough in 2023.Read

Will the price of gold rise to USD 3,000 per ounce before the end of the year? That is what investment professional Leigh Goehring thinks is possible. He is a managing director at Goehring & Rozencwajg, manages a commodity fund, among other things, and expects a "decade of inflation." If the forecast comes true, gold stocks will at least be an attractive portfolio addition. In addition to industry heavyweights like Barrick Gold, explorers can be worthwhile as leverage to the gold price. One such explorer is Desert Gold. The share of the Canadian company reacted yesterday with a price jump of over 10% to a project update. In contrast, the outlook for "concrete gold" remains challenging. Vonovia, for example, was once again downgraded by analysts despite the significant share price losses of recent months. At the same time, there are also positive comments.Read
