The stock market is not a one-way street. Some investors have recently experienced this firsthand. Because in the "ups and downs" of sentiment, new trends are constantly emerging. The biotech sector, for example, has been falling for more than a year, and the charts keep reaching new lows. In 2020, cannabis stocks made a splash, with the related index, POT, increasing tenfold since 2018 to about 1100 points. However, yesterday it reached a new all-time low with 45.5 points or a 95% loss. Currently, investors are trying to ride the wave of "Artificial Intelligence" (AI), with stocks like, Nvidia, Microsoft, and Palantir all performing well in 2023. A new megatrend is underway here that, according to experts, will continue for several years. How long this boom will yield returns is unknown, but these stocks are currently performing strongly.

    Grid Metals - First resource estimate still in the second quarter

    Today, anyone looking at high-tech products is encountering a shortage of important metal elements. Due to increased investments in various Greentech solutions such as wind and solar plants, e-mobility or new energy storage systems, a lot of copper and lithium is needed. Both are scarce or can only be extracted regionally and at great expense. Large mining companies are therefore dependent on the help of exploration companies that search for these metals in sometimes remote regions.

    The Canadian company Grid Metals (GRDM) has specialized in the exploration of lithium, nickel, copper and PDM metals with its projects Donner Lake, Mayville and Makwa, northeast of Winnipeg (Manitoba). Final drill results have now been released from the completion of the Northwest Dyke winter drill program on the Donner Lake lithium property. Visible spodumene mineralization has been observed in all drill holes within the core area of the dyke, with apparent thicknesses of up to 10 meters at a depth of 185 meters below the surface. Lithium (Li2O) grades vary from 1.13 to 1.60% over lengths ranging from 14 to 262 meters. From these results, management will prepare an initial resource estimate, which is expected before the end of the second quarter of 2023.
    Robin Dunbar, CEO of Grid Metals Corp. comments: "The results indicate strong continuity of mineralization in the core area of the dyke, with the pegmatite remaining open at depth and to the south along strike." GRDM's share price is currently hovering between CAD 0.14 and CAD 0.18. With a good resource estimate, it could go high soon.

    Nvidia - Welcome to Apple's Trillion Dollar Club

    After Nvidia managed to rise to USD 420 by the end of May, the valuation of the popular AI stock reached the trillion-dollar mark. This makes the chip specialist another member of the "Trillion Dollar Club", formed in 2019 by the remarkable rise of Apple's stock. For a while, even Tesla was in on the action. However, the share lost more than 65% of its value at the end of 2022 and had to say goodbye to the club. Currently, Microsoft, Amazon and Alphabet are still in the running.

    Nividia has more than tripled in value since mid-2022, leaving the keen observer wondering what the enormous increase in value is all about. Artificial intelligence applications need a huge data analysis platform, and Nvidia can provide just that. The surprising explosion in demand in the data centre segment hit the market like a bomb because this business is likely to grow even faster in the future due to the AI boom. However, other related technologies could also potentially lead to a paradigm shift. Areas such as IoT applications Smart Home, machine learning, and automated driving are gaining prominence.

    After a minor correction, the Nvidia share is once again on an upward trajectory, equipped with sufficient dreams of the future. After a low of USD 376, it stood at USD 392 yesterday. On the Refinitiv Eikon platform, there are 49 assessments of the share, with no negative ratings. The median 12-month price target is USD 456 representing a modest 16% increase - not exactly a lot for an outright stock market darling.

    Deutsche Telekom - Under the wheels

    According to the news channel Bloomberg, Amazon is reportedly working on its own mobile phone offering at bargain prices for its Prime customers. This report brought a 10% plunge to Deutsche Telekom last week, marking the steepest discount since the Corona crash of March 2020.

    In terms of customer retention, an attractive contract would indeed make sense. Providers could be the major US network operators Verizon, Dish and even the telecom subsidiary T-Mobile US. It is strange that the US subsidiary wants to torpedo its own business model. Because as a result, the profit margins for mobile phone contracts could come under significant pressure and ultimately also affect the profits of the German "parent". Amazon immediately denied this. The massive sell-off of the Telekom share may also be due to chart price patterns at the turn of the millennium, which recently caused the DTE share to form an SKS formation. This picture would give rise to a correction potential of up to EUR 17.50. Only after that could it return to old highs of over EUR 23.

    At the moment, however, the trend is bearish, as the battered price could lead to further selling pressure or even attract short sellers. The experts on the Refinitiv Eikon platform are relatively certain, however, that a target price of EUR 25.60 could be achieved. The share is currently trading at a P/E ratio of 10.8 and offers a dividend yield of 3.7%.

    The price fantasy on the NASDAQ is mainly fuelled by high-tech and AI stocks. Since leaving the downward trend at the beginning of 2023, the index has already gained a solid 34%. In nominal terms, it is now only 1,400 points behind the DAX 40. The party will likely continue for a second round.

    Last week, all eyes were on chip giant Nvidia, which once again surprised Wall Street with a positive performance and a net profit increase of almost 770%. In Germany, Allianz also made headlines with a record profit and a significant dividend increase. In contrast, a report that could significantly impact the future of green technologies, with positive signals for the oil and gas industry, went somewhat unnoticed.

    Will GreenTech soon be back in vogue? Nel ASA, Klimat X, Nordex, and Plug Power are under analyst scrutiny!

    • Hydrogen

    Despite new record highs in global stock markets, the GreenTech sector has yet to show any gains. The hydrogen sector, in particular, which was hyped in 2020/21, has been struggling for the past three years. With share price losses of 70 to 90%, investors are hopeful that a bottom could be reached in the foreseeable future. We analyze whether this could already be the case and present an alternative in the form of Klimat X. Business is running smoothly here, and the CO2 savings are even certified.

    Bear market in Hydrogen versus Bull market in Artificial Intelligence - Nel ASA, First Hydrogen, Nvidia and ARM Holdings

    • renewableenergies

    The stock market is relentless at the moment. While Nvidia has gained almost 50% in just 5 weeks, the stock market darlings Nel ASA and Plug Power continue to lose value. Small recovery attempts have been consistently sold off recently. No stone is being left unturned in this segment, and investors are eagerly awaiting the upcoming 2023 annual figures. Is there hope, or should we continue to write off hydrogen? On the other hand, some companies are making significant progress with a different business model, setting new records. So what to do? A brief update for active investors.
