BYD, NIO, Nikola, Nevada Copper - The Tesla hunters step on the gas!

The appointment of the candidates for chancellor in Germany has led to a significant increase in the Green Party. While at the same time, the current government parties have been punished. For consumers, this means continued tax incentives of the highest magnitude for so-called "environmentally friendly technologies," which, in addition to solar panels and wind power, include above all battery-powered mobility and hybrid vehicles. The German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) is subsidizing the purchase of electric cars throughout Germany until the end of 2025 - this year, the bonus is particularly high. This environmental bonus supports not only the purchase but also the leasing of electric cars. One half of the subsidy comes from the manufacturer, the second half from BAFA. The stock market likes to hear this, and the manufacturers' shares are selling like hotcakes. It seems that this bull market can start again with every political statement.

    BYD and NIO - Hot on Tesla's heels

    Can BYD and NIO get past their competitor Tesla? The decisive question will be battery technology because it is one of the core elements of electromobility. Only in recent months has the public become increasingly aware that the Chinese car manufacturer BYD also has a lot to offer in this area. Soon, the division could be listed separately on the stock exchange. If not now, when?

    BYD is currently restructuring its battery business because it wants to sell its power units to other car manufacturers in the future. As announced at the Shanghai Auto Show, the medium-term goal is to manage an IPO in the next 2 years. The market should be greedily waiting for such Tesla competitors. Specifically, the offshoot Shenzhen Pingshan Fudi Battery, also known as FinDreams, has taken complete control of BYD's battery business. Just a week ago, FinDreams announced plans to massively expand its production capacity. FinDreams is a technological spin-off of BYD from 2019.
    NIO Ltd. is also several steps ahead. The Chinese electric vehicle startup had unveiled the new ET7 model, as the first NIO electric sedan, in early 2021. On April 1, 2021, the first body then rolled off the production line at the plant in the technology metropolis of Shanghai. Well-known and very financially strong investors back the Chinese electric vehicle producer NIO, and the Company is also a pioneer in battery swap systems.

    The strong sales growth for BYD and NIO in China is likely to continue in the coming years, as the demand for vehicles with alternative drive systems remains enormously high. In the first quarter of 2021 alone, around ten million registrations of such vehicles were reported by China's Ministry of Public Security - a new record. The share of cars with purely electric drives was just over 80%. Good for BYD and NIO - both shares are currently coming out of the woodwork again after a sharp price correction.

    Nikola - 90% crash - what is next here?

    Nikola Motor Company is taking a different green approach. It calls itself the first truck manufacturer to use a hydrogen drive. The name, by the way, was chosen specifically to tie in with Tesla's success story. After last year's scandal with manipulated marketing videos, however, the stock took considerable damage, and the founder and CEO resigned as a result.

    But Nikola also wants to get its hands on the Biden billions. Biden recently unveiled the second of three stimulus programs, an infrastructure package for bridges and airports. It provides for investments of USD 2.25 trillion over eight years. In addition, there are tax breaks of USD 400 billion for renewable energies. In total, it is estimated that about another USD 1,000 billion could go toward climate action. A cake that will be divided among many suppliers.

    Nikola stock had hit the ground running at over USD 90 and a capitalization of nearly USD 40 billion in 2020, until its value plummeted by 90% due to subsequent scandals. Currently, the stock is trying to stabilize at around USD 11, with a low of USD 9.37 in early April 2021. Let's see how things go here. Trust is good - but a precise selection of investments is probably the better advisor.

    Nevada Copper - Steady progress in mine expansion

    Nevada Copper is a beneficiary of the global electrification wave. Already 70% of the world's copper production is used in electrical products, and according to the latest studies by economic institutes, this share could become even larger. The reason is that copper recycling can no longer make up for the deficits on the supply side. The real reason for this misery goes back to the extensive mine closures between 2010-2015 when the copper price abruptly crashed from USD 10,000 to below USD 5,000. That is precisely where it was again in March 2020, when everyone believed in the pandemic-related end of the world.

    Far from it, because increasing digitalization and the trend towards environmentally friendly transportation drive the price of copper more and more. In 2021, the USD 9,500 mark has already been approached twice, and the next time the breakthrough to the top could follow.

    Nevada Copper is sitting on an extensive resource with underground and Open Pit potential in the immediate vicinity. There has been no new production facility in North America in the last 10 years, so international attention to Nevada Copper's Pumpkin-Hollow project is high. Currently, the underground mine's equipment features are being upgraded weekly. These include improving ventilation, increasing safety measures, and ultimately increasing the production rate, which has now reached about 4,700 tons of rock per day. The average copper concentrate content has also been increased from 24 to 26%. Stable production of 5,000 tons per day is expected to be achieved in the third quarter.

    NCU shares are currently trading very high on the stock market, with huge interest from the investment community. The price fluctuates between CAD 0.18 and CAD 0.21, which certifies Nevada Copper a capitalization of CAD 380 million. The project is progressing. One should not wait too long with an entry.

    Globex Mining achieves several deal highlights: The exploration company receives CAD 2 million in cash from Agnico Eagle for a land purchase, with further opportunity for a growing asset. Over 23 months, an additional CAD 6 million is expected to flow to Globex Mining. Then follows an option agreement with Tomagold Corporation on a Canadian gold property at Gwillin Lake near Quebec. Total payments of six figures are due over the next four years. In addition, shares in Tomagold will be transferred to Globex Mining. While German Foreign Minister Baerbock was more conspicuous for flight mishaps, the Lufthansa Group achieved an adjusted EBIT of around EUR 1.1 billion in Q2/23. The subsidiaries SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings and Lufthansa Technik also posted record results. Furthermore, Rheinmetall is also taking to the skies - now supplying drones to Ukraine.

    Low inflation in the US has given new impetus to the bulls. Not only are growth stocks benefiting from the hope that the interest rate cycle is coming to an end, but also gold. Thus, the gold price reacted on Wednesday by jumping to over USD 1,960 per troy ounce. Top-tier gold stocks such as Barrick also responded positively. Exploration companies have significant catch-up potential, including Viva Gold. The Company is favorably valued and has again reported positive drill results. The fact that the interest rate cycle is nearing its end is also evident in the chemical industry. Most recently, BASF issued a warning, and there are sell recommendations. On the other hand, there are buy recommendations for the Nel share.

    Climate Crisis: Copper is the new oil! BYD, Orestone Mining, Ford, Nio - 100% acceleration in Greentech

    At the beginning of May, analysts at Bank of America declared a new "super cycle" for basic and raw materials. What they mean by this is that a whole series of important materials will be in great short supply for years. The prime example is the red metal copper. The price of the industrial metal has almost doubled in the past 12 months. It is currently quoted at around USD 8,350 per tonne, not far from the historic high of USD 10,750. During the pandemic, the metal briefly fell to USD 4,500. Currently, however, forecasts are once again pointing upwards. Bank of America expects the price to more than double again to around USD 18,000 in the next three years. We take a look at some hot stocks.
