Ballard Power, dynaCERT, Tesla - the strength of innovations and solutions

  • Innovations

On the capital market investors find an infinite variety of possibilities to invest their money. There are listed companies that have a history and are valued on the basis of compliance with prospects and fundamentals. And then there are innovative companies that attract capital regardless of all valuation parameters because they have a product that solves problems and arouses desires. If the product is also scalable, then the potential of the shares is often exorbitant, depending on the market size.

Ballard Power with hydrogen

The Canadian fuel cell manufacturer Ballard Power has experienced a veritable price rally over the past 12 months. During this period, the company's share price rose from below EUR 2.80 to over EUR 9.50. The shareholders were able to achieve a return of over 230%.

The market capitalization is now quoted at over 2 billion EUR. The topic of hydrogen in modern mobility is gaining more and more interest and based on that investors are looking for investment opportunities that are active in this field with scalable products.

dynaCERT makes diesel greener

Also located in Canada is the innovative company dynaCERT. After more than 15 years of research and development, the experts for hydrogen technologies were able to bring a device to series production readiness with which diesel engines can be retrofitted. The advantage of the technology is that the consumption of diesel can be reduced by up to 18% and, in addition, emissions of NOx, carbon dioxide and particulate matter are also significantly reduced.

As currently circa one billion diesel engines are in operation and the use of dynaCERT's HydraGEN technology not only offers high savings in fuel consumption but also protects the environment, the share price could increase from below EUR 0.17 to over EUR 0.72 in the past 12 months. With a market value of EUR 230 million, the company is still a lightweight compared to Ballard Power.

Tesla and the battery car

Tesla from the USA is a prime example of a new trend. The manufacturer of battery cars has been the focus of reporting for over a decade. The founder at the top of the company is Elon Musk. He is driving Tesla's innovations forward and his announcements are causing euphoria and imagination on the capital market. It's hard to imagine that Tesla today would have a valuation of over EUR 81 billion if Tesla had been led by an employed CEO over the past ten years.

Musk is there with passion and emotion, and this is the only way to keep the company continuously alive with new cash injections. The share price increased by over 60% from EUR 290.00 to EUR 475.00 in the comparison period. Ten years ago, Tesla shares changed hands at less than EUR 15.00, which clearly shows how enormous the potential of innovations and trends can be.

Burcon NutraScience, dynaCERT, NEL ASA - which technology makes investors rich?

  • Innovations

At the moment the stock markets are on a downward trend and the majority of shares have moved away from their recent highs. A healthy attitude towards life can sometimes still enable you to find a lucrative opportunity in a difficult situation. Those who have so far failed to position themselves in the hot future topics of energy and nutrition can once again strike at prices that were possible about a month ago. An opportunity like time travel. A second chance for investors is obvious.

BMW, NEL ASA, IWATER GROUP - TODAY RECOGNIZE THE TOPICS OF THE FUTURE

This week, the German government decided to create incentives to buy e-mobility with higher subsidies. For example, government support for the purchase of a new car was increased from EUR 4,000 to EUR 6,000. The large car batteries of the electric cars, however, can lead to an extended problem of electronic scrap at landfills all over the world due to a lack of recycling methods and infrastructure if solutions are not worked out at the same time.
