For investors, rising share prices are a confirmation of a successful investment decision. However, experienced market participants also know that from time to time it makes sense to take chips off the table - in other words, to realize profits. It is both important and difficult to assess the market potential of innovations. If a share has doubled in value, it does not necessarily mean that it will only be half as attractive from now on. In the context of social trends, topics can generate investor demand for a much longer period of time and more intensively.

About the author


Ballard Power and the fuel cell

Geoffrey Ballard founded the company in 1979 and has been involved in the development of fuel cells ever since. In 1993, the first bus powered by hydrogen technology and fuel cells was introduced. A lot of time has passed since then.

In the first nine months of 2019, Ballard achieved sales of USD 64.44 million. Compared to the previous year, this represents a decline of around USD 3.5 million. Bottom line, the company increased its loss from USD 15.85 million to USD 28.78 million compared to the previous year. On the balance sheet, Ballard still had USD 153.36 million available to spend. At the current share price of EUR 10.17, the market value is EUR 2.44 billion.

dynaCERT makes diesel green

Over the past 15 years dynaCERT has developed a hydrogen technology that is now ready for series production. The innovation from dynaCERT is primarily suitable for retrofitting diesel engines, and not without reason, because there are already around a billion diesel engines of all types in use worldwide. The devices produce hydrogen on demand with commercially available distilled water and add it to the combustion process. This increases the efficiency of the engine and reduces NOx emissions by up to 88%, as well as particulate emissions by 55% and CO2 by 9%.

The purchase of dynaCERT's technology not only protects the environment, but the purchase of the device can pay for itself within one year due to fuel savings of up to 20%. The company is going on a sales offensive this year and at a price of EUR 0.58 per share dynaCERT is valued at 205.51 million EUR. The advantage of this technology is that it can be used immediately and is scalable without significant effort.

NEL ASA provides the infrastructure

The Norwegian plant manufacturer NEL ASA has focused on the production of hydrogen. In connection with the development of a network of hydrogen filling stations, the expectations of the company and its future prospects are correspondingly high. There are more than 14,000 filling stations with gasoline and diesel in Germany. It is probably currently considered possible by market participants that NEL will be involved in the construction of filling stations around the globe.

In the first nine months of 2019, sales rose from EUR 36.42 million to EUR 39.39 million compared to the previous year. In the same period operating losses rose from EUR 13.54 million to EUR 19.12 million. At the current share price of EUR 1.125, NEL is valued at EUR 1.50 billion on the stock exchange. In January 2020, the management successfully used the valuation level for a capital increase of EUR 84.55 million and provided the balance sheet with fresh liquidity.

BASF, Bayer, Enapter: From top dogs to young guns

  • Hydrogen

When it comes to chemical products or other engineering services, the Germans are not easily outdone. Although emerging companies worldwide are sometimes hyped on the stock market, in practice, the motto is often still: Germany first! But it's not always dull corporations like BASF or Bayer that cause a sensation - there are now also innovative players from Germany, like Enapter in the hydrogen sector.

NEL, dynaCERT, K+S: Where analysts see 280% potential

  • Hydrogen

Innovative technology brings returns to investors. The best example is the share of the Norwegian hydrogen specialist NEL. In the past twelve months, the value has increased by more than 250%. The reason: The mobility revolution is underway and many experts see hydrogen as the next big thing. However, billions in investments are needed to produce, store and distribute hydrogen - and that's precisely what NEL shareholders are speculating on. Trees don't grow to the sky on the stock market and every trend comes to an end. In the case of NEL, however, pessimists have been caught on the wrong foot in recent weeks. As soon as the chart showed a warning signal and the share price hesitated for a moment, the stock surged ahead and marked a new high. How long will this continue?

NEL ASA, dynaCERT, Everfuel - Is the hydrogen bubble bursting?

  • Hydrogen

The valuations of most hydrogen stocks are skyrocketing to immeasurable heights. Compared to the current balance sheet figures, this seems irrational and unjustified. Only the future forecasts in terms of sales and profits are used as a benchmark. Much is reminiscent of the year 2000 and the new market, when shares such as Gigabell or Metabox were maneuvered into orbit, only to fall from the sky like shooting stars a short time later.
