The stock market is diverse and investors are always looking for companies that have potential and are close to a breakthrough or can demonstrate continuity. Much has changed during the Corona Pandemic and, if you look at it closely, we are still in the middle of it. There are still some countries in the world where high rates of infection are observed. For this reason it is important that a vaccine is developed to stop the spread of COVID-19. By then at the latest, other industries will wake up from their slumber and it may therefore be worthwhile to invest in time.

Good ESG Oil from Canada

The Canadian oil company Saturn Oil & Gas was taken over by a new management team around three years ago and has since been successfully built up. In 2017, the oil price was at times around USD 45.00 per barrel of WTI, only 10% above the current level. In other words, the team around CEO John Jeffrey learned to cope with such conditions early on. In 2019, the company was able to report an annual profit for the first time since its foundation - Saturn Oil & Gas earned almost CAD 1 million. The first quarter of 2020 also closed with a profit.

The crash on the oil market in April 2020 has caused a lot of unrest in the industry, but at the same time it offers opportunities for M&A activities. Saturn Oil & Gas has already announced in news releases that the acquisition of projects is currently favored. It is therefore to be expected that there may be a corresponding development in this context. The oil price of WTI has already stabilized in the past weeks and a price increase of the Saturn Oil & Gas share could also follow. Those who invested in the restructuring three years ago can still look back on a book profit of around 50%. Since then, most other oil producers have recorded a sharp price loss.

On the trail of a vaccine

Biopharmaceutical New Technologies aka. BioNTech, stands for a next generation immunotherapy company that is pioneering the development of therapies for cancer and other serious diseases. BioNTech claims that it combines a variety of modern therapeutic platforms and bioinformatics tools to rapidly advance the development of novel biopharmaceuticals. BioNTech works with world-renowned partners from the pharmaceutical industry, including Genmab, Sanofi, Bayer Animal Health, Roche subsidiary Genentech, Genevant, Fosun Pharma and Pfizer.

The company is also actively engaged in research to develop a vaccine to contain the Corona Pandemic. ""We are pleased to have received FDA fast-track status for two of our vaccine candidates. Together with our partner Pfizer, we will work closely with the FDA to accelerate our clinical development," said Özlem Türeci, Chief Medical Officer of BioNTech. "The FDA's decision to grant fast-track status to these two COVID-19 vaccine candidates is an important milestone in our efforts to develop a safe and effective vaccine against SARS-CoV-2," said Peter Honig, Senior Vice President Global Regulatory Affairs at Pfizer. "We look forward to continuing to work closely with the FDA throughout the clinical development of this program, called Project Lightspeed, to evaluate the safety and efficacy of these vaccine candidates.

In pole position in the travel industry

The travel industry has been severely affected by the restrictions during the Corona Pandemic. Due to its size, the TUI Group was able to rely on government support and maintain its business operations and customer service. Even though the current situation is severely restricting the holiday season, the slow return to a new acceptable normality also seems to be leading to more travel activities by the public again.

A great deal still needs to happen before the share price can return to the level of the fourth quarter of 2019. The decline in economic strength in Europe will lead to more worries and restraint. However, as soon as a vaccine is available on the market or a significant decline in the spread of the Corona Virus becomes apparent, the share is likely to regain the favour of investors.

RYU Apparel, Plug Power, Netflix - strength and weakness!

  • Investments

The stock market is alive and kicking. With a new app called Reddit, 2.4 million users with an affinity for stocks are currently clicking through various discussion channels and, with self-imposed herd instinct, buying new stocks on the price list. Formerly inconspicuous stocks such as AMC Entertainment, BlackBerry or Nokia then go through the roof with crazy turnovers. A humble statement from management often follows this: "We can't explain the attention in our stock!" - but even after the announcement of such words, the turnovers go down only slightly, and sometimes the price gains even build up. Hard-nosed hedge fund managers learn to fear when they sell completely overpriced stocks short and are subsequently steamrolled by the bull community. With GameStop's move yesterday, Melvin Capital was hit; the short community around Tesla has probably long since given up.

GS Holdings Ltd., SAP SE, BB Biotech AG: Great services for society!

  • Investments

The world is moving ever closer together. In the fight against the pandemic, the demand in the service industry is higher than ever. Distance and isolation, however, are the current opposing elements of daily life for everyone. However, for all areas of life, the service industry must continue to function under certain basic conditions. The guidelines are regulated. The adaptation of business models to the new rules of everyday life is taking place quickly, and companies and private individuals are taking the best possible route. More than ever, online presence, network availability, and a high level of service are among the guarantees of a functioning society. Asia is ahead of Europe in many respects, but when it comes to technology, biotech and medicine, the Western nations are currently still ahead!

Saturn Oil & Gas, Exxon Mobil, Nokia: A world without oil is still a long way off!

  • Investments

Many wish for a world without pandemics, without diesel on the roads, and ultimately without oil. However, a wonderful green picture exists only in the heads of ecological idealists, who forget everyday life and its many consumer products. Oil has been a raw material of many basic chemical industries for more than 200 years, far away from the primary petrochemical industry. Today, only 46% of the crude oil extracted goes into fuel production. In comparison, 54% is used in medicine, the cosmetics industry, in the manufacture of plastics and rubber substitutes, cleaning agents, or simply as a tar product in road construction. Therefore, it already needs a broad discussion on how to recreate standard processes and products that have always required crude oil's consistency and viscosity.
