New stock favorites? BYD, JinkoSolar, dynaCERT

  • Hydrogen
  • GreenTech
  • Electromobility
  • Solar

Hydrogen, electromobility and solar energy are without doubt among the absolute industries of the future. The growth prospects for the coming years are excellent. However, companies from all these sectors are currently struggling on the stock market. Today, we take a look at new and old favorites. BYD's preliminary quarterly figures were compelling, and analysts are giving their approval. JinkoSolar is evolving into the number one in the solar sector, and the Chinese can be pleased about new orders. There is also positive news at dynaCERT. The hydrogen and emission reduction specialist could even be on the verge of a game-changer.

Hydrogen bull market ahead? Are Nel, Nikola and First Hydrogen shares ready for entry?

  • Hydrogen
  • renewableenergies
  • greenhydrogen

This year's sell-off in shares related to the energy and mobility transition sectors is tempting investors to enter. This is because the market trend remains positive. For example, the promotion of hydrogen in the US and Europe has taken concrete shape. The EU, Norway and the UK alone want to multiply electrolysis capacities from the current 143 MW to 138 GW by 2030. So, it should only be a matter of time before the next hydrogen boom. Robert Campbell is also confident, stating: "We are entering a renewables supercycle." This comes from the CEO of First Hydrogen at the International Investment Forum. The Canadian company is developing hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles and is approaching a significant event. At Nel, the focus is on the upcoming quarterly figures, among other things. Can the Norwegians perhaps surprise? Nikola has reported a milestone, but the stock has given up almost all of its gains from the summer.

Turnaround for Plug Power stock? Barrick Gold and Manuka Resources are also on the rise

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Hydrogen
  • Vanadium

Is this the turnaround for Plug Power? After all, the stock has gained about 20% in the past few days. Looking at the longer-term price chart of the hydrogen pioneer, this is only a small success, but at least it is a start. Barrick Gold's stock has also seen an upswing in recent days, and the outlook for the fourth quarter could give the gold company a further boost. The CEO of Australian resource company Manuka Resources has expressed optimism that the stock will soon reach higher prices. "For a company that is already producing gold and has two projects fully funded, we are extremely cheap at a valuation of AUD 25 million. So we should have seen the bottom," commented Dennis Karp at the recent IIF virtual investor conference. Where does this optimism come from?

Stocks for bargain hunters: BYD, JinkoSolar and Desert Gold

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Electromobility
  • Solar

What do renewable energies and gold have in common? Despite attractive future prospects, shares from both sectors have taken a beating in recent months. Often for no apparent reason. This opens up opportunities for bargain hunters with a bit of patience. For example, with shares like JinkoSolar and Desert Gold. Both companies are historically cheap. JinkoSolar has just reported a new sales record and wants to grow further. Desert Gold lures with an almost ridiculously low valuation of its gold resources and continues to drill. A rebound or takeover beckons for patient investors. And BYD? The Chinese are on track to displace Tesla as the world's No. 1 e-car manufacturer. Nevertheless, the stock is stuck, and in Europe, the EU is investigating illegal subsidies.

  • Biotechnology
  • Innovations
  • Technology
  • Travel

Alarm at Tui and Deutsche Lufthansa. Both stocks are influenced by the terrorist attack in Israel this week. While the oil price is surging, aviation and tourism stocks are declining. The Tui share had already been trending weakly before. Even the leap into the profit zone could not change this. And what do analysts say? Meanwhile, Defence Therapeutics shone with positive news on a cancer therapy. As a result, the biotech share gained yesterday, offering further potential for price increases. Plug Power's share price rose by a good 7% yesterday. What is behind this?

Buy biotech stocks now? BioNTech, Morphosys and Cardiol Therapeutics in check

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

In times of high interest rates, the wheat is separated from the chaff, even in the biotech sector. After all, young research-based companies, in particular, have a high demand for capital. But at the moment, all companies are being lumped together. This opens up clear buying opportunities because some have full coffers. BioNTech belongs to this group. Thanks to the COVID-19 vaccine, research is fully financed. The same goes for Cardiol Therapeutics. The share of the Canadians is one of the summer's high flyers, and the recent price setback offers an entry opportunity. The analysts' price target is over 300% above the current level. And what do analysts say about the German biotech veteran Morphosys? Goldman Sachs has tripled its price target.

Battery vs. hydrogen! Buy Nel ASA now? Or is FREYR Battery or Altech Advanced Materials better?

  • Innovations
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

Should investors bet on battery stocks over hydrogen stocks? At least when looking at investor darlings like Nel and Plug Power, the answer to this question seems to be "yes" at the moment. The Nel share, in particular, has been hit hard. In local currency, it is trading at its lowest level since the beginning of 2020. Is there hope for a rebound? Or are investors better off betting on battery newcomers like FREYR Battery or Altech Advanced Materials? In terms of share price, Germany's Altech has been the best performer this year, and at the recent Capital Markets Day, management expressed confidence that it would soon take the battery market by storm. So, what is the current status of hopes for hydrogen and batteries?

BYD unstoppable. Sell Varta shares? 200% with Almonty Industries?

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

Electromobility and the energy transition offer numerous investment opportunities along the value chain. Take BYD, for example. The Chinese company is increasingly becoming the e-car market leader. Could they soon even dethrone Tesla? That should make the stock interesting. And what about Varta? The battery manufacturer disappointed investors last year. Is the stock attractive now? Analysts continue to take a critical view of the Company. Almonty Industries is a different story. After the latest half-year figures, the experts at Sphene Capital advise buying. From 2024, sales and profits of the tungsten producer are expected to grow strongly. According to the analysts, the share could triple.

Stocks for climate change: Nel ASA, Nordex, Klimat X Developments

  • renewableenergies
  • climatechange
  • recycling

While climate activists face criticism for their actions at the Brandenburg Gate, the fight against climate change is gaining momentum with stock market investors. For the courageous, there are always exciting opportunities to enter the market. But there are also problem children. Nel ASA has caused little joy among shareholders in recent months. Can the hydrogen pureplay now herald a turnaround? Nordex is also currently working on a turnaround. With success? Those who entered and exited both stocks early enough could reap significant profits. Such an opportunity could still be ahead for newcomer Klimat X Developments. The specialist in CO2 certificates expects the market to increase tenfold within a few years. So, is it time to invest now?

EU investigates BYD! Share staggers. BASF and First Phosphate bet on the battery market

  • Mining
  • phosphate
  • Electromobility
  • chemicals

Alarm bells at BYD. The European Commission is investigating the extent to which Chinese e-car manufacturers have received unauthorized subsidies for electric vehicles and can now flood the world market with cheap vehicles. This is weighing on BYD shares, which should actually benefit from the ongoing IAA. In contrast, First Phosphate reports another success. Following the preliminary economic evaluation, tests have now shown that phosphate rock from the Canadians is of high quality and suitable for producing lithium iron phosphate batteries. German chemical giant BASF is also expanding its activities in the battery sector. After setting up a plant in Germany, it is now moving to the United States. But analysts are currently skeptical about the stock.
