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.

    Altech: researchanalyst report sees game-changer potential

    Altech Advanced Materials AG could revolutionize the market for lithium-ion batteries with innovative approaches. That is the conclusion of a recent study by researchanalyst.com. The experts took a closer look at the Heidelberg-based Company and see game-changer potential. Altech is working with partners to increase battery performance by more than 15% and extend their service life by up to 30%. To this end, research is being conducted into anode coating with high-purity aluminum oxide (HPA) and silicon enrichment. If the Heidelberg-based Company succeeds in further increasing the proportion of silicon in the anode, performance increases of 50 or 100% are possible. Initial results are promising: laboratory tests have shown stable results with significantly improved properties. Modern batteries generally take years to develop, but Altech could quickly be on the market using a so-called drop-in technology.

    The next stage is to set up a pilot production site and prove commercial and industrial production. If that succeeds, then "customers should be knocking on the Company's doors," analysts said. A 14-hectare industrial site in Saxony has already been acquired to build the pilot plant. The plant is expected to produce a capacity of about 10,000t annually. Initially, 120kg per day of the lithium-ion battery material will be produced for testing and qualification by customers. The knowledge gained will be used to optimize the plant design and process parameters for a full-scale production facility. The analysts conclude that Altech could shake up the battery market with its innovative approaches to optimizing performance. With these prospects, the current market capitalization of just under EUR 6 million does not seem too high.

    TeamViewer: Unable to convince analysts

    TeamViewer's stock has recovered from its lows in recent weeks. However, the majority of analysts advise against buying the stock. The disappointment over weak figures, the expensive marketing deal with Manchester United and changes in management over the past year are still too great. The Company provides cloud-based software that enables users to collaborate online and provide remote support globally. Services range from remote support of customers or employees to location-independent control, monitoring and managing equipment or complex machines and instruments, to workflows supported by augmented reality. Yesterday, Goldman Sachs confirmed its "Neutral" rating with a price target of EUR 16.50. The management of the software company pointed to the continued solid corporate business and did not rule out possible acquisitions. In February alone, seven analyst firms have spoken out on TeamViewer. Five of them recommend holding TeamViewer shares. Only DZ Bank, with a price target of EUR 20, and Warburg Research, with a price target of EUR 26, recommend buying. Both analysts view the announced share buyback as positive. DZ Bank sees TeamViewer as significantly undervalued compared to other companies in the sector.

    Allianz: Analysts convinced by figures and outlook

    Analysts are much more optimistic about the future prospects of the Allianz share. Since last Friday alone, there have been five buy recommendations. In the same period, two analysts have confirmed their hold recommendations. Previously, the German insurance travel had convinced with positive figures. Allianz increased operating profit by 25% to EUR 13.4 billion in 2021. Although profit fell by 3% to EUR 6.6 billion, this takes into account provisions of EUR 3.7 billion, of which EUR 2.8 billion came from legal disputes in the US. In the current year, the DAX-listed group aims to achieve an operating profit of between EUR 12.4 billion and EUR 14.4 billion. Of the analysts, Berenberg is particularly optimistic, with a price target of EUR 269, while JPMorgan sees "only" EUR 240 and advises holding the share.


    After the share price crash, TeamViewer's recovery has lost momentum, and analysts are cautious. Allianz convinces with figures and outlook. If the pilot plant works, Altech could shake up the huge battery market.

    Infineon, BrainChip, Daimler, Volkswagen - High-tech stocks at their best!

    • Electromobility
    • AI
    • Innovations

    The global automotive business is operating according to new laws. That is because e-mobility is a done deal, and if politicians' pronouncements are anything to go by, combustion engines will be history from 2030. As a result, the prerequisites for the industry are also changing because intelligent and powerful chips remain the basis for the further development of future mobility. Supply chains and Chinese reliability are still a problem, and high raw material prices will not make the new vehicles any cheaper. Innovations could be an effective means of combating the erosion of margins. Who is ahead in the market of high-tech players?

    All eyes on Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank - but Aspermont has the greatest leverage

    • Investments
    • Technology
    • Mining

    The two best-known German banks are currently in demand on the market. Why? The interest rate turnaround means that the typical bread-and-butter business with loans is profitable again. Business picks up when banks have room to manoeuvre with interest rates in positive territory. Also, the increasingly weaker environment for corporate financing at the upper end of the risk scale ensures that banks take on a more critical role as traditional intermediaries. We take a closer look at Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank, but we also have an exciting second-tier stock on our list that could become an insider tip thanks to its unique selling propositions and growth potential.

    Plug Power and BYD shares are strong: when will Almonty Industries take off?

    • Tungsten
    • Electromobility
    • greenhydrogen

    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.
