Ballard, Burcon, dynaCERT - stock market favorites with enormous upside potential

  • Environmental Protection

Investors love business models that are scalable and can change the world positively. Patents and profitability are then decisive factors for the amount of price gains. However, some business ideas also require patience, which can still be worthwhile, as we can see from three examples. Hydrogen, proteins and environmental protection will accompany us in the coming decades and with the right companies, investors will probably be able to achieve above-average share price gains. However, the momentum of the various stocks may vary over time and against this background diversification is particularly important for a forward-looking portfolio.

Opportunity before new highs

The dynaCERT share is currently trading at less than EUR 0.50 and is therefore only half as valuable as it was in February 2020, just before the Corona Pandemic. Three weeks ago, the experts at GBC Research raised the target price of the Canadian company's shares from EUR 1.30 to EUR 1.40 per share and confirmed the 'Buy' rating. The news of recent weeks has also been extremely positive. On the one hand, the company received another large order and on the other hand, which is extremely far-reaching, dynaCERT is now working together with the United Nations. The importance of hydrogen technology is of great social relevance, which this cooperation now proves.

More than 200 cities worldwide are already working with the United Nations in the context of the "United 4 Smart Sustainable Cities" program. The special feature of dynaCERT's patented technology after about 15 years of development is that existing diesel engines consume significantly less fuel due to devices for retrofitting and the use of hydrogen. In addition, emissions of CO2, NOx and particulate matter are reduced. The devices are used in vehicles in everyday traffic and generators for power generation. The advantage is that the air becomes cleaner and at the same time no replacement of the vehicle or generator is necessary. According to the company, the acquisition costs can be amortized within one year depending on use. So it is only a matter of time until there will be further reports of sales successes, which will also push the share towards new highs.

Health and animal welfare

The Canadian company Burcon holds a large number of patents for high-quality proteins that are of particular importance for the food industry. The replacement of animal products is becoming more and more important for several reasons: Firstly, the interest in animal welfare has increased in modern society and, secondly, it is becoming more and more difficult to maintain the supply of meat to a growing population around the world.

Burcon's Proteins will be able to supply companies like Nestle with proteins that can be used in food products as a substitute for animal products. This includes both meat and milk substitutes. The billion-dollar market will provide large revenue streams for Burcon in the coming years. Currently, the company is still in the process of completing its large production capacity, but it is known that the future is being traded on the stock exchange and the shares started the weekend on Friday at their highest level since 2017. Burcon's share price could multiply if the company's operations develop successfully.

Optimal political environment

Ballard Power is one of the most popular companies as a manufacturer of fuel cells for a hydrogen ecosystem, or at least the interest in the share as an indication of this. The company already had to cope with difficult times when nobody was interested in replacing combustion engines. Meanwhile, high government subsidies provide political support for the technology and its dissemination.

However, fuel cells, no matter what manufacturer they are from, can only offer a real advantage over internal combustion engines if the electricity used to produce the hydrogen comes from energy sources that are almost 100% renewable. As soon as a country or region has to use fossil fuels to produce hydrogen, depending on the energy mix, there may be a disadvantage for the environment. Given that this energy source still receives political support, it will probably only be a matter of time before the stock sees new highs again.

Encavis, dynaCERT, Verbio - continue to outperform with green stocks!

  • Environmental Protection

The awareness of protecting the environment and therefore reducing emissions is becoming more and more prevalent in society. Numerous industries are growing in the wake of socially, politically and fiscally motivated changes and demand sustainable products or solutions. "Green" investment has many facets. In the following, we present three companies that are dedicated to the topics of emission reduction and renewable energies. In the past, these stocks have been able to outperform the broad market enormously. Where is this trend continuing unabated?

dynaCERT, NEL, Plug Power - Who is working for climate targets?

  • Environmental Protection

The goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030 is Germany's contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement. The aim is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius by the end of this century - if possible, even to 1.5 degrees Celsius. To achieve this, emissions of greenhouse gases, i.e., primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), must fall significantly. So far, Germany is among the pioneers, having reduced emissions by around 31% between 1990 and 2018. A good start, but it is still far from enough. With Brazil, Australia and the USA, the leaders of significant countries, unfortunately, gave the rest of the world the cold shoulder. But the engineers of future technology do not care about the pronouncements from politics. They continue to research, for example, in Canada, Scandinavia and the USA - because the essential course settings happen now or never!

NIO, Tesla, dynaCERT - Mobilizing the future!

  • Environmental Protection

The good news for automotive suppliers is that electric vehicles still only make up a small percentage of the car market - at least for now. The bad news is that the increasing spread of electric cars is a significant challenge for automotive suppliers. Since these cars have far fewer parts than those with conventional combustion engines, manufacturers of exhaust and fuel systems as well as traditional transmissions are facing significant disruptions as e-mobility takes unexpected steps forward. The crux of the matter for electricians is still the availability of charging stations and the limited mobility radius. But this will soon change rapidly once the Corona aid pots are flowing into the green infrastructure.

Nevertheless, the e-vehicle is being fueled by government emission standards and incentives, especially in the USA, England, France, Germany and China. But the battery-powered vehicles will not pose a significant threat to the combustion engines until operating costs are about the same. In especially more impoverished areas of the planet and inaccessible zones, there is no alternative to the internal combustion engine; this is completely ignored in the public discussion. While the cost of e-cars continues to fall as technology improves, they are still far from being competitive. Nevertheless, if you look at the signs of the times, car companies have already invested billions in electro-related technology, so the course for the future is set.
