If you want to be successful on the stock market, you have to back those shares with prospects. Although an intact upward trend suggests that a story will be well received on the market, the fall height also increases with the price. Investors have recently had to experience this pain, especially with shares in the field of electromobility or hydrogen. Even vaccine hopefuls such as BioNTech have lost ground. Let us show you how the trend stocks are faring and which sector is only at the beginning of its trend!

About the author

BYD and the fear of the future

BYD's stock lost over 20% last month. The Chinese electric carmaker has recently had to contend with a considerable downturn. With its battery cell production and access to numerous critical raw materials in China, it is perfectly positioned to profit from the trend. But after a 275% return in one year, every share is ripe for a correction.
The current inflationary trends are weighing on companies with a high growth perspective in particular. The reason: future profits could be lower as a result of inflation. Prices for raw materials in trend industries such as electromobility are also more likely to rise. This upsets the growth models, as increasing costs lead either to lower margins or higher prices. While BYD remains promising for the future, the stock is currently in correction mode - investors should not hope for better times but actively manage their trend stock portfolio.

BioNTech: Good products, weakening share price

Investors in BioNTech may also see a reason to act: The share recently dropped significantly and lost around 17% in one month. Over the year, the return is currently "only" 145% - the former trend value has become a reality. Yet fundamentally, things do not look bad for the Company from Mainz: The Corona vaccine from BioNTech and Pfizer is proving to be effective and suitable for preventing transmission of the virus. Epidemiologically, this is good news. It is not without reason that government advisors in Germany have recently been calling for younger people with many contacts to be vaccinated with BioNTech. The general competence around the mRNA process also speaks for the Company. The products are good, but the share is currently no longer a trend value.

Kleos Space: Satellites as data collectors

So, where should speculative investors move to? An attractive alternative is the share of Kleos Space. The stock has been stable for months and seems to have found a solid base. These are good conditions for a sustained rise in the share price, and this is all the more true given the extremely exciting investment story. Kleos Space operates satellites, collects data with them and sells them to companies and government organizations. Four satellites were launched into orbit at the end of last year. This summer and next December, more satellites will go into orbit, the Company announced yesterday.

With the help of a global network of satellites, Kleos Space wants to analyze data, such as radio activity, and make it available to its customers. In this way, for example, piracy or even illegal border crossings and smuggling are to be effectively prevented. Kleos Space also wants to make its data available to NGOs. Even with the satellites currently orbiting the earth, it is possible to monitor prominent regions. For this reason, Kleos Space has already signed twenty contracts and letters of intent with customers. These include the military, government agencies and companies.

Analysts see a 90% chance

Kleos Space itself has little competition outside the United States, citing high entry barriers for the space business. On the one hand, satellites must be developed and data collected processed, but on the other hand, entering the market is very costly. Kleos Space has successfully raised capital in the past and is already known to professional investors. Since a data subscription is expected to cost between EUR 60,000 and EUR 300,000, the Company, listed in Australia and Germany and headquartered in Luxembourg, expects to see rapidly increasing cash flows. Kleos Space is an exciting investment story. If the business takes off as planned, the Company can operate without much competition and make money for a long time. Analysts at First Berlin see a potential of up to AUD 1.15. Currently, the share is trading at AUD 0.60. Those who want to be in on the next trend early should analyze the value thoroughly and consider an entry.

Palantir Technologies, Kleos Space, Airbus, Boeing - Profits from air and space travel

  • Space

Regardless of the discussion about who has now crossed the border into space, all tourist space flights have one thing in common - climate neutrality probably does not play a sustainable role for the initiators, given the manageable demand and horrendous ticket prices. After all, the wealthy travelers are in the minority, so an "anti-climate flight" can also be justified with the service to progress. Even the operation of a V8 engine in a Ford Mustang surely teases out a suitable justification for the operator's action. How about this one: permanently maintaining a classic car saves thousands of tons of CO2 compared to buying a new battery-powered vehicle. That is probably correct, so hopefully, the Mustang in question will last the next 30 years. We turn our attention to flying business models.

Three themes combined: big data - artificial intelligence - satellite technology. Cathie Wood, a world-renowned fund manager, is the CEO and CIO of ARK Invest, which runs the three highest-yielding equity ETFs of the past three years. According to the Wall Street Journal, her latest product, ARKX Space Exploration, raised a whopping USD 536 million in its first five days of trading. Cathie Wood's newly launched and exchange-traded fund, which focuses on investments in space exploration, is thus well on its way to becoming one of the most successful fund launches in history. The figures far exceed the industry average of all ETFs, which raised an average of USD 100 million in the first 3 years. We take a closer look at possible target investments for the fund.

BYD, Kleos Space, SAP - The oil of the future!

Data is an extremely important raw material in today's world. Big Data, the evaluation and processing of large amounts of data using artificial intelligence, will almost certainly become one of the hype topics on the markets in the next few years. The development is still in its infancy. However, the enormous growth rates and the need for intelligent data for almost every industry can already be seen in the few listed companies, such as the US data analysis specialist Palantir Technologies. In addition to Palantir, which currently has a market capitalization of almost USD 50 billion, there are smaller players with huge potential.
