Various sectors of the stock market are of particular interest to investors at the moment. Mobility is an engaging subject for people all around the globe. All developments are closely scrutinised, resulting in progress being rewarded by increased investor interest. When regress and uncertainty are detected, investors react like a shy deer and scatter. There are numerous opportunities to invest in and the time spent on shares is a critical factor, especially for stockholders. As always, it is worth taking a broad perspective.

The oldest currency in the world is in demand

In the Canadian province of British Columbia, Scottie Resources is looking for new gold deposits. The company's projects are located in the so-called Golden Triangle, a region that has made a name for itself with its numerous deposits. Scottie Resources owns the Scottie Gold Mine of the same name in the region, which has produced gold in the past. The company has now secured 24,589 hectares of claims in the Golden Triangle.

In a recent announcement, Scottie Resources has announced further airborne work to identify priorities for further ground exploration. In northern British Columbia, an area of 57 km2 is the focus of the surveys. The airborne geophysical surveys will provide interpretations that, in conjunction with sampling and geological mapping, will facilitate subsequent exploration.

CEO Bradley Rourke provides further details: "Scottie Resources continues to aggressively explore and develop the Scottie Gold Mine Project. These geophysical surveys will enhance our technical data and understanding for future drill targeting. Drill progress has been better than expected and over 4,500 metres has been completed to date. Drill results will be released upon receipt."

Is the comparison with Tesla justified?

The BYD shares are currently in great demand. This interest is driven by the analysts' assessments and the company's announcements. The company recently announced that it had received an order for 106 electric buses from the Finnish transport company Nobina. The major customer will operate 64 vehicles in Helsinki and 42 in Turku.

The Chinese group BYD is often compared to Tesla because the company serves the electromobility market with different vehicle models. Besides electric buses, BYD also offers limousines. The model 'Han' is said to have a range of up to 605 kilometres and to have 494 hp as a luxury version.

Does growth also work at a profit?

The US company, Plug Power, is a pioneer of the hydrogen ecosystem and can provide a variety of components for an infrastructure. In a growing market in which innovations are tested and, if successful, demanded in large quantities, there are attractive return opportunities for investors in well-positioned companies.

Plug Power's share price has already performed well, but this does not mean that the price rally must end now. Given that the company is already valued at over EUR 4 billion, investors need to bear in mind that at a certain point there is a growing interest in profitability and that the market capitalization must be competitive. It is a significant industry phenomenon that in the current situation, where there is little supply on the market, companies still do not make money.

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.
