About the author

Green gold with environmental protection

Newlox Gold is focused on the processing of historical tailings from the mining industry. The company uses its assets to search for gold in the ground from previous mining operations before selling it on the market. This type of gold extraction protects the environment and cleans existing tailings.

This has the advantage that the demand for the precious metal can be met by additional supply. Environmentally friendly gold is not declared on the market as such, but the operational success of Newlox makes the world a little better. This is one reason why the business model is attracting interest from investors and the first projects in Latin America can be implemented.

Global production will decrease

The current gold price level has brought Newlox into the focus of investors and the trading volume has increased significantly in recent months. Interest in the company can be expected to continue to rise in the future as conventional mining is increasingly struggling with shrinking reserves.

Barrick Gold expects gold production to peak in 2020 at around 118 million ounces and then fall to around 65 million ounces annual production in 2029. Alternative procurement options such as Newlox will therefore become increasingly important. The company's shares are traded in Germany and Canada and its market value is currently around CAD 10 million.

Vegetable-based meat products

Beyond Meat has massively changed the food market. The use of meat in food produces a much higher emission of the greenhouse gas CO2 than the vegetable replacement. The special feature of Beyond Meat is that the company offers high quality and has been able to cleverly stage this with marketing activities.

Burgers, sausages, and meatballs made from vegetable ingredients can offer consumers a pleasure without hesitation. The idea is well received on the stock market and the value of the company is now almost EUR 8 billion.

Hydrogen in logistics

The US Company Nikola wants to change the logistics sector with hydrogen as an energy carrier. Trucks in particular need large quantities of fuel for their transport routes. Against this background, Nikola wants to conquer the market in this segment with vehicles and infrastructure components. With initial euphoria, the company ventured to go public.

In the meantime, Nikola's value has fallen significantly by over 70% from its peak. But its market capitalization still amounts to around EUR 6.2 billion. The value of the company has been questioned considerably in the course of short-seller attacks. It remains exciting to see when the mood turns again.

Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank, Bigg Digital Assets: Getting off to a good start after a lean period

  • Environmental Protection

October 2020 will be uncomfortable for many entrepreneurs and banks in Germany. The reason for this is that the German government's special regulation in connection with the Corona Pandemic is expiring, and insolvent companies will have to file for bankruptcy. The aforementioned occurs when 10% of a company's liabilities cannot be paid within three weeks. But there are also rays of hope.

NEL ASA, Newlox, Shell: golden profits with environmental protection

  • Environmental Protection

Future expectations for companies are valued into their prices on the stock exchange. Depending on the industry and business model, shares are either in high demand or 'out'. Conservative investors usually use valuation models to limit how much the value of a share can rise and under what premises. In practice, however, theoretical calculations can also be wrong, so they serve as a guide. The two classic cases are boom and crash. In one situation, the share price runs away from you and in the other case, the return comes under pressure.

  • Environmental Protection

Investors love business models that are scalable and can change the world positively. Patents and profitability are then decisive factors for the amount of price gains. However, some business ideas also require patience, which can still be worthwhile, as we can see from three examples. Hydrogen, proteins and environmental protection will accompany us in the coming decades and with the right companies, investors will probably be able to achieve above-average share price gains. However, the momentum of the various stocks may vary over time and against this background diversification is particularly important for a forward-looking portfolio.
