Climate change is on the global agenda. The cry for decarbonization of the economy is getting louder and louder. Climate activists call for an even faster transition, while politicians follow suit with ever shorter targets. The plans are in place, but implementation is still a long way off. The lack of raw materials, in particular, is likely to silence the theorists in the near future. In addition to lithium, one raw material is essential for the production of lithium-ion batteries.

    Graphano Energy - Rare player from North America

    In contrast to the lithium explorers, celebrated on the stock market for months and whose valuations are already equivalent to a bubble, it is relatively quiet around companies dedicated to the anode material graphite. But the material is as important as it is scarce, and demand is enormous. Analysts at the major Swiss bank UBS predict that if there is a 100% switch to battery-powered vehicles, demand for graphite will explode by around 264%. What graphite also has in common with lithium as a raw material is its dependence on China. Approximately 70% of graphite production takes place in the Middle Kingdom.

    In contrast, there is hardly any production of the urgently needed material in North America. Graphano Energy is one of the few exceptions that the US government could encourage with its program to "secure all North American supply chains for all materials of strategic importance." The Company's vision is to extract graphite with its state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly mining technology and bring it to market in battery-grade form. In this regard, the Company's Lac Aux Bouleaux project is adjacent to TIMCAL's Lac des Iles graphite mine in Quebec to the south, a deposit producing 25,000t annually. The infrastructure is first class, and in addition, the metal is widespread in the region in the Grenville Province rocks. It has been commercially mined in a number of deposits between Mount Laurier to the north and the Ottawa River to the south.

    A Phase 2 exploration update was recently submitted. A total of 190 samples are being assayed in the laboratory, with analytical results of 50 samples released. Among these, graphitic carbon (Cg) varies from 0.34% to 23.5%. 19 samples contain over 10% Cg, 12 samples between 5% and 10% Cg and the remaining samples below 5% Cg. Luisa Moreno, Chief Executive Officer of Graphano Energy, is optimistic about the results going forward as ongoing prospecting has led to new graphite discoveries and potential drill targets. Once assay results are complete, plans for the next drill program and a resource estimate should be announced.

    Graphano Energy's stock trades in Frankfurt at an attractive long-term entry level due to a steeper pullback.

    BYD - Rough wind

    A rough wind is blowing against listed Chinese companies at the moment. After US authorities recently published new rules for dealing with foreign shares, shares of Alibaba and NIO went down. The risk of delisting for Chinese stocks remains because certain reporting requirements are being demanded, which the Chinese government will almost certainly oppose. In contrast to the bulk of Chinese stocks, the electrical engineering company BYD held its own to some extent with a price loss of around 4%. Nevertheless, the regained mark of EUR 33 should be observed more closely. Should the title slip below it again, a next stronger stop would only be found again at EUR 29. On the upside, breaking the resistance at EUR 35 would generate a new buy signal.

    Heidelberger Druckmaschinen expands electromobility

    The chart of the SDAX company Heidelberger Druckmaschinen is school-like. After peaking at EUR 2.88 in mid-November, a short consolidation phase back to the support area at EUR 2.40 followed. The share is now preparing to mark a new high.

    The latest news is encouraging and promises considerable share price potential for the future. Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG is significantly expanding its range of products in the field of electromobility by acquiring the charging station technology of the energy company EnBW. According to a spokesperson, the parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The Company aims to attract a new customer base with municipal utilities, local authorities, and companies with public charging points. Sales of the new charging points are scheduled to start in the middle of next year.

    The energy transition is underway, and the electrification of transport is picking up speed. However, a significant supply deficit for the necessary raw materials such as lithium and graphite is looming for the next few years. Graphano Energy is one of the few players in North America and should enjoy strong demand. Shares in Heidelberger Druckmaschinen are also likely to be in demand due to the e-mobility strategy.

    Scarcity threatens energy transition - BYD, Canadian North Resources, Encavis

    • Mining
    • Lithium
    • Batteries
    • Electromobility

    Critical raw materials are becoming increasingly important with the global challenge of climate change and the need to drive the transition to renewable energy. However, these raw materials, which are essential for manufacturing technologies such as solar cells, batteries and electric motors, are limited and often difficult to access. Securing a stable and sustainable supply of critical raw materials is, therefore, one of the key challenges of climate change.

    Defense Metals, Rock Tech Lithium, BYD - Shares for the energy transition

    • Mining
    • RareEarths
    • Tungsten
    • Lithium
    • Electromobility

    The energy transition is a major challenge for the world, as it requires transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy. In order to switch to renewable energies in the long term, large quantities of critical raw materials such as rare earths and lithium are needed. However, these raw materials are important not only for the energy transition but also for numerous other applications in modern industry. Rare earths are particularly important for the production of powerful magnets used in electric motors and generators. Lithium, on the other hand, is an essential component of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. Today, we look at three companies that can help drive the energy transition.

    The banks are sputtering again. The somewhat more mature investors can well remember the horror year 2008 when the spectacular collapse of the small investment bank Bear Stearns occurred in the first half of the year. In May 2008, JPMorgan Chase had to take over the ailing institution in a night and fog operation. But that was just a preliminary flurry of activity. Lehman Brothers finally delivered the huge bankruptcy on September 15, 2008. That was the financial crisis's historical beginning, which only ended 7 years later. Now they are back, the troubled banks and the emergency takeover of Credit Suisse by UBS. What is next? That is the big question! After Corona and the Ukraine war, a recession combined with a banking crisis could be heading our way.
