  • 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.

Hydrogen share Enapter: German engineers are turning up the heat

The Enapter share has caused a sensation in recent months. Still trading under the name S&O Beteiligungen, the share has been on a roller coaster ride, bringing many investors quick profits. Enapter has set itself the task of producing green hydrogen using German technology. With its electrolyser, which is modular in design, Enapter wants to produce hydrogen in a climate-neutral way and turn the hydrogen industry around. The goal: to be able to produce hydrogen even more cost-effectively and efficiently. The next generation of the electrolyser is already in development. According to Company sources, the finished product could be presented in the first half of 2021.

Several patents protect Enapter's technology. When asked about the Company's competition, representatives point to the patents and its technological lead, which is between three and five years over the competition. Starting in 2022, the Company wants to ultimately bring its horsepower to the road and mass-produce its electrolyser. It plans to open a factory in North Rhine-Westphalia that will produce up to 100,000 electrolysers a year. Even if the stock still has to be considered a hot potato, the German hydrogen stock with its technological edge is definitely one for the watch list.

BASF wants to become leaner after the Corona year

Investors do not have to remember BASF's name. The stock is an evergreen on the trading floor and has provided generations of private investors with reliable dividends and the odd share price gain. But 2020 was a challenging year for BASF. The pandemic hit the Ludwigshafen-based Company, margins fell and high fixed costs weighed. From a whopping profit in the previous year, BASF plunged to a bitter loss of EUR 2.30 per share after nine months of the fiscal year 2020.

But low figures are no reason for the global corporation to resign. The Company has reviewed its processes and put some areas up for disposal. The Group wants to become leaner and more agile. These measures will pay off in the long term. Although there is little imagination in the stock currently, investors can keep the value in mind, also thanks to the dividend yield of 5% - a watch list is not necessary with BASF.

Bayer: little can shake this big ship

Bayer is just as well-known as BASF. Only two hours further north and also on the Rhine are the Headquarters of the chemical Company. Although Bayer was also affected by the pandemic in 2020, there were only a few write-downs. At least there was some legal progress around the permanent construction site "Monsanto takeover." Like BASF, Bayer is also restructuring but is a few steps further along the way.

The market leader's shares have recovered over the past three months, achieving a return of around 10% in this period. However, the stock is only likely to gain further momentum above the EUR 58 mark. Since Bayer also offers a dividend of around 6%, it is also suitable for long-term investors. With German quality companies such as BASF or Bayer, investors will not make any mistakes even with the DAX around 14,000 points. However, if the portfolio is a little more dynamic, private investors can also add some of the bold challengers to the established top dogs. Thanks to German technology, Enapter is about to become a household name in the field of green hydrogen.

NEL, Enapter, Plug Power: Hydrogen? It's just getting started!

  • Hydrogen

If you look at the prices of selected hydrogen stocks, you might think the hype is over. But the big players in the industry are only now jumping on the bandwagon. Bosch, for example, has decided to really take off with fuel cells for trucks. The aim is to establish the technology in China. Here, a large market is waiting, which could also be groundbreaking for other sales markets. Specialized companies from the hydrogen sector could profit from this - after all, large industrial companies such as Bosch are always interested in new technology.

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, Everfuel - What is next for hydrogen stocks?

  • Hydrogen

Without a doubt, hydrogen will remain one of the most exciting topics on the capital market in the coming years. If the current German government has its way, Germany will become a global pioneer in using new types of climate-friendly hydrogen energy. Berlin is thus pumping a total of EUR 9 billion into this industry of the future. What happens after the correction? Do the sharply fallen values turn upward again, or do you continue to reduce the inflated valuations? And are there alternatives?

Nel ASA, dynaCERT, FuelCell Energy - Hydrogen, the second wave!

  • Hydrogen

The hydrogen hype is entering its second wave. The reason is undoubtedly the current draft resolution of the Joe Biden package in favor of the global climate goals. This package contains an investment sum of several hundred billion US dollars to lower climate damaging emissions. The market will decide whether battery or hydrogen technology will play a greater role here; the only important thing is that the funds for the start of the research projects are released quickly. Time is pressing because the pandemic has put many industries on the sidelines. The transport industry, in particular, depends on the sale of goods, and in the future, this should take place without any negative environmental impact.
