Memphasys, Merck, Novartis - Solutions for the desire to have children

  • Artificial Insemination

Many couples around the world long for their own children, but for many people, family planning by natural means is not possible. Modern medicine can help in the development of a pregnancy by means of artificial insemination, the so-called in vitro fertilisation, also known as IVF procedure. In this context, egg cells are taken from the woman and artificially fertilised with the man's sperm in the laboratory. If successful, embryos can then be transferred to the uterus. The need for artificial insemination in couples varies between 16 and 25% depending on the region - a large and global market.

Ballard Power, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - higher, faster, hydrogen!

  • Hydrogen

The mobility of the future will be a mix of different energy sources. New technologies will make conventional combustion engines even cleaner and more efficient and, where it makes sense for the user, technologies with electronic drive motors will also be used. However, the German government is also attempting to influence the market by subsidising battery cars, a technology that is already being phased out in China. This political actionism from the Chancellor's Office is bypassing the market, and car manufacturers in Germany are noticing this too. A total of 57,533 purely electric cars were registered in 2019 until November - of a total of 3.6 million newly registered passenger cars.

Rent cap keeps Vonovia & Co on its toes: MOREH offers 6% fixed interest rate with commercial property

  • Real Estate

The discussions surrounding a rent cap in Berlin and other cities have repeatedly caused uncertainty among shareholders of real estate companies such as Vonovia in 2019. No improvement is in sight for 2020. Anyone who focuses on commercial real estate is not affected by this. For example, the real estate portfolio owner M Objekt Real Estate Holding GmbH & Co. KG, MOREH for short. In the summer of 2019, the company issued a corporate bond with a fixed interest rate of 6.00 percent with a semi-annual payment and extensive collateral. The security with a term of five years can be traded on numerous German stock exchanges. MOREH is a classic real estate portfolio holder with a focus on commercial real estate in Western Germany. Experts consider the MOREH bond to be attractive and have invested.

NEL ASA, Saturn Oil & Gas, VARTA - which stock will be the top performer in 2020?

  • Investments

If it runs, it runs! This or something similar is how the demand for the stocks of trend themes can be described. Last year, shares of hydrogen companies were in great demand. Also the interest in energy storage was very high. But what did not work at all was the extraction of energy raw materials in the traditional way. A backlog demand has emerged, which will pay off in 2020 according to experts for investors who are there in time.

E.ON, EnBW or RWE - who is restructuring Germany after Merkel?

  • Central planned economy

The planned economy is de facto the opposite of the market economy. In a market economy, the free market decides what is produced and offered in what quantity and type of products and services. In a planned economy, the state determines what is to be implemented - or rather: implemented - in what periods and how. The disadvantage of a planned economy is that plans are often implemented inadequately and with delays. In the past, communist governments have worked with the system of the planned economy, but due to the lack of success the states have failed economically. Under German Chancellor Angela Merkel, patterns of planned economy are increasingly becoming apparent and economic challenges are growing exponentially. At the turn of the year, the problems in the energy sector, among others, increase intensify.

BMW, Daimler or Volkswagen - who gives up first?

  • Mobility

Ludwig Erhard, the second German Chancellor and economist, said in the 1950s the much-quoted sentence: "No state can give its citizens more than it has taken from them before". A conscientious government should therefore strive to keep the delta between tax revenue and benefit to the taxpayer as small as possible. In this context, government subsidies are always a sensitive issue. The economic sustainability of government support for technology and innovation must lead to industries and companies learning to stand on their own two feet and the market regulating demand. The solar industry in Germany is a prime example of how tax money can be wasted. No well-known German company in the solar industry has survived in competition with Asia. Is there any reason to worry that German electromobility will suffer a similar fate?

Lynas Corporation, Mkango, Ucore Rare Metals - who will benefit most from the U.S. Army?

  • Rare Earth Elements

The market for rare earth elements is dominated by the People's Republic of China. Worldwide production of rare earths in 2018 was around 170,000 tonnes, of which 120,000 tonnes came from China. This shows how much the global industries have become dependent on a good relationship with China. In 2010, following a diplomatic dispute with Japan, the People's Republic restricted exports, which caused prices for niche metals to skyrocket.
