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.

    Furious debt mania, a thorough portfolio check is necessary! Allianz, Blackrock Silver, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank in focus!

    From one high to the next - it is not just equities that are booming in Europe, the US and China; it is mainly debt. First Corona, then Ukraine, now Israel - there is no end to the flood of borrowing. Armaments are now being financed on credit, while the accompanying recession is draining the coffers. Real estate is becoming a hot topic: New builds are hardly affordable for families, and old buildings are swallowing up thousands of euros in green-tinted renovation costs. The Federal Constitutional Court has now put a retroactive stop to the creative spending culture in Berlin, and a new budget plan is necessary. Keeping a clear head as an investor in this environment is challenging. We look at the opportunities in the financial sector, but perhaps precious metals will also be the anchor that saves the day.

    Climate change is increasingly threatening our lives, with few areas worldwide considered safe. Sea levels are rising, and polar ice is melting. Many regions are experiencing severe storms and increased rainfall, while others face growing risks of heatwaves and droughts. Since the Paris Climate Agreement at the latest, countries have been stepping up their efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This has created a market that experts predict will increase eightfold by the end of the decade.

    Deutsche Bank, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Enthusiasm for gold is back

    Despite several interest rate hikes, the price of gold has recently risen to over USD 2,000 again. Even though the latest increase coincided with the attack on Israel, this is unlikely to be the reason for it. Instead, the high demand from central banks is responsible for the steady gold price. Within the first 9 months, the central banks bought a whopping 800 tons of gold. That is a new record. The geopolitical tensions could also turn more and more private individuals into so-called gold bugs, who are making provisions for crises and assuming that gold will continue to rise in the long term. As the Fed has paused interest rates, this could give the gold price a further boost.
