The idea that automakers have no future is a pipe dream. The pandemic shows us: we want to see our loved ones regularly, make new contacts and interact with people. Our car is the key to getting us from A to B in an uncomplicated way. At the same time, however, this mobility must not spoil the next generation's future. Therefore, new developments around clean drives are important and necessary. We introduce three companies and outline the role they play in the mobility revolution.

    Ballard Power: Hydrogen pioneer in an exciting niche market

    Ballard Power is one of the pioneers when it comes to fuel cells. The Company was founded in 1979 and made a name for itself early on with buses equipped with fuel cells. The Canadian Company is now owned by the Chinese, which gives Ballard Power access to an important market. China electrified public transportation back in 2016. Ballard Power has also partnered with Western bus manufacturers, such as Alexander Dennis Ltd.

    While rechargeable batteries are gaining traction in passenger cars, Ballard Power's focus on larger vehicles and even ships could fill just the right niche. The stock gained 180% in a year but has also been weakening for a month. The reason is that hydrogen is increasingly being recognized as a future technology, which will probably only generate significant sales in years to come. As inflation is currently becoming an issue again, the market is discounting future sales and sending the entire industry down on the stock market.

    dynaCERT: When will the price target of CAD 2.20 be reached?

    The dynaCERT share has recently also suffered from the waning hydrogen hype. The Company is not about fuel cells but rather hydrogen-based conversion kits that make existing combustion engines more effective and environmentally friendly. The patented technology is already in use in some vehicles in North America. dynaCERT has primarily selected municipalities and companies as its target group. Buses can be made "greener," or heavy equipment, such as in mining, can score with fewer emissions. Companies are under increasing pressure to become more sustainable, especially in the mining industry.

    In recent weeks, dynaCERT has stepped up its sales efforts and is also looking to roll out its technology on a large scale. Earlier this year, Canadian analyst firm Haywood called the stock the sustainability opportunity for 2021 and set a price target many times higher than current levels at CAD 2.20. Since then, the price has calmed down. The Company continues to work in the background. The technology is interesting for the transition to e-cars or other alternative drives. Those who think anti-cyclically can get in without stress.

    Porsche: Strong brand, clear strategy

    Things are clearer at Porsche - the share has already risen sharply for this. The Company has strong ties to Volkswagen and therefore benefits from Lower Saxony's electrification strategy, which has been well received by the market. VW wants to map the entire supply chain around electric cars and their batteries. Porsche also already has electric cars on offer. The powertrains, which enable powerful acceleration, are a good fit for Porsche's vehicles, which have always been sporty.

    The stock has gained more than 60% in the last three months and is currently trading near its long-term high, just above EUR 90. Car manufacturers from Germany are currently in demand as never before. The market is rewarding their strong brands and solid market position and pricing in future fantasies surrounding electromobility. Porsche is a clear hold. Although the share has risen sharply, it is still good for triple-digit prices.

    Buy or sell? Nel, Zalando, Aspermont under analyst review

    • Hydrogen
    • Mining

    After the heavy losses of the past months, a countermovement seems to be starting at the moment. Whether this will turn into a real summer rally remains to be seen. Buy or sell is the question. Analysts see a price potential of over 50% for Nel ASA. Even though competition from China and India is increasing. Aspermont also appears attractive at the current price level. The latest quarterly figures were positive, and the positioning of the small-cap in the booming commodities sector is promising. At Zalando, analysts react to the profit warning, and the price targets are significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some advise buying the online fashion retailer, but not everyone.

    TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Lufthansa - The travel market is back - where are the share prices?

    • travel
    • Investments
    • Camping

    The travel market has changed dramatically since 2019 in light of the Corona pandemic. Due to the most extensive pandemic standstill in 2020, the capacities for flights, rail traffic and accommodation were adjusted downwards dramatically. Major cost reductions occurred primarily through de-occupancy and staff reductions. Travel companies cut their basic capacity utilization with partners to such an extent that many smaller operations had to pull out of the race, and large corporations could only survive with extensive state aid. Now, however, the situation has turned 180 degrees and demand for travel is exploding. However, this time it seems difficult to ramp up the reduced capacities in line with demand. We look at the opportunities of three typical industry players.

    Commerzbank, Triumph Gold, Bitcoin Group - Inflation alert! Which stocks bring returns in this market environment?

    • Gold
    • Crypto
    • Investments

    We have not seen such high inflation for decades. Looking back, it becomes clear that one cannot compare the situation back then with today. Back then, interest rates were at 12%, and as a saver, you could generate an increase in value for your money despite inflation. Today, interest rates are much lower than inflation. Putting money in a savings account will not bring any investor a profit. If you want to protect your money, the first thing that comes to mind is gold because it is considered crisis-proof. But nowadays, it almost seems as if cryptocurrencies could outperform gold. Alternatively, one can bet on stocks that cover these areas. We take a closer look at three companies.
