Since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, the travel business has come to a standstill and the supply of various food products and everyday items has been characterized by bottlenecks. The meat industry is struggling with infections among its employees as a result of the relentless price war. The easing of measures continues to increase and the pie is being redistributed in many parts of the economy. Opportunities for investors.

    Support in case of desire to have children

    Memphasys from Australia is active in the medical field and helps couples who wish to have children with artificial insemination. The company has developed a device called FELIX, with which high-quality sperm can be obtained from the man's seminal fluid through biological separation to increase the chances of success of a pregnancy afterwards. Memphasys serves a growing market with this solution, because more and more often couples wait until it is almost too late to have a child by natural means or until accompanying support is needed.

    In connection with the Corona Pandemic, this trend may be supported because the economic insecurity of the general public is increasing and the pressure to earn money is growing. The market value of Memphasys is approximately AUD 50 million and in the second half of 2020 FELIX will be launched in various markets around the world.

    Meat replacement on the rise

    In recent weeks there have been increasing reports about working conditions in slaughterhouses. Due to price pressure, employees from low-wage countries are often employed and housed in mass accommodation. The consequences are a high rate of infection among the employees, because quarantine of infected employees cannot be ensured and it is usually too late by the time an infection is noticed. Burcon NutraScience will be able to serve a market with its plant proteins that will have a competitive advantage through the replacement of ingredients derived from animals.

    Whether it's convenience foods or cappuccinos, Burcon's patented proteins will enable the company to scalably serve the meat replacement trend of the future. The company is currently working on building production capacity. Burcon's market capitalization is presently around CAD 140 million.

    Winners of Isolation and Social Phobia

    HelloFresh was definitely able to benefit from the changes and measures in daily shopping in the past months and the share price increased significantly. How sustainable the sale of ingredients and recipes in boxes will be will be shown by the publication of the financial statements in the coming quarters. As purchasing power declines, customers may be forced to economize and in connection with the flattening of the risk of infection by Covid-19, people will also go shopping in supermarkets again. It remains to be seen whether HelloFresh will hold a market value of EUR 6.4 billion.

    Start of the race to catch up

    The stock market value of the TUI travel group suffered considerably in the wake of the Corona Pandemic. With a market capitalisation of less than two billion euros, the value of the company is only slightly above the government support of EUR 1.8 billion. As an industry giant and a responsible brand, TUI is the first and the strongest beneficiary of the easing in the travel business and the increase in demand for travel. The curfews of recent months certainly do not alleviate wanderlust and the desire to travel. TUI's shares are likely to rise again in the coming days, weeks and months in the favour of investors and on the trading floor.

The share price of Block Inc., the mobile payment provider originally launched under the name Square Inc., also climbed to dizzying heights. After a sharp correction, things could now be on the up again with the tailwind of good figures.

    At least in Europe, "normality" seems to have set in in everyday life - that is, concerning Corona. However, cautionary voices are already pointing to the winter season and the associated threat of new mutations. Nevertheless, given the Ukraine war and the major security-political tensions in the world, nothing is "normal." Investors should be vigilant in following geopolitical developments and not miss out on the opportunities that continually present themselves at the corporate level.
