Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - state-subsidized share gains

  • Investments

The German energy transition and the change in mobility can be summarized in one sentence: maximum effort for minimum success. While the impact of the German population on global environmental responsibilities is marginal, the financial burden is enormous. The introduction of battery cars has already failed and is now only getting off the ground thanks to unprecedentedly high premiums on a new purchase. The original selling point that battery cars are better for the environment has failed miserably. The federal government is now engaging in damage control and appealing to subsidy hunters. On top of that, the acquisition is now sweetened with a state-subsidized charging station. Speculators are rubbing their hands.

Competitive disadvantages due to politics

When politics interferes in the economy, it threatens to incur costs that often have to be borne by taxpayers. In Germany, citizens and companies are already paying the highest electricity prices, and there is no end in sight. The reason lies primarily in the levies and fees for building a grid with renewable energies. Only 45% of the electricity in Germany comes from renewable sources.

Electricity does not originate in the socket

The shutdown of Germany's safe nuclear power plants means that consumers are becoming more dependent on neighbouring countries. As long as coal-fired power plants are still allowed to be on the grid in Germany, they will fill the supply gap caused by the loss of nuclear energy. Energy suppliers have received hefty compensation from the Merkel government for shutting down nuclear power plants.

A drop in the bucket

Subsidies for battery cars are putting Daimler and Volkswagen and their suppliers under increasing pressure. While Berlin-Brandenburg's political celebrities celebrate the construction of a Tesla plant, families in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg are left out in the cold, as the government-initiated transformation causes job losses and uncertainty there. More and more new names of battery car manufacturers are appearing on the stock lists, benefiting from subsidies from various nations and giving shareholders a share price firework display.

Environmental protection comes first

The earth is our planet, and it must be cared for - environmental protection is, therefore, a top priority. Against this background, it is abstruse that politicians are using taxpayers' money to promote a technology that will create more electricity demand and significantly change the procurement of raw materials. The overexploitation of Mother Earth becomes a burden for the people affected. Also, battery disposal is a problem that will assume significant proportions in the coming years. How will the quantities of pollutants from the batteries be disposed of and who will pay for it?

An environmentally friendly alternative

A viable solution that makes an uncomplicated contribution to environmental protection comes from dynaCERT. The Canadian CleanTech Company has brought to market a hydrogen technology for retrofitting diesel engines that significantly increases efficiency and reduces emissions of pollutants. The Company is working with the United Nations, and well-known investors, like Eric Sprott, are already invested. Until there are viable alternatives to diesel engines in many areas of transportation, the dynaCERT technology will be more than just a bridging technology. CO2-based tolling may be another market opportunity for the product.

Alibaba, Memiontec, MorphoSys - Now the rally after the sell-off!

  • Investments

The regulator's pressure is getting bigger and bigger. China has tightened the thumbscrews on technology giants and especially their online education companies - triggering a stock market quake on its own stock market. In some cases, well-known tech stocks lost double digits, even though the affected areas only affect fractions of annual sales. Government regulation of the USD 100 billion-plus education market is likely to weaken confidence in China's stock markets for the long term. And the fact that China's trade relations with the US have also reached a low point does not make things any better. Are there still opportunities?

Barrick Gold, Mineworx, TUI: Summertime is investment time

  • Investments

Invest or consume? Given the difficult months many of us have had, it would be understandable to unwind now: sun, beach and sea beckon despite rising numbers. But it may also make sense to think more long-term in the face of rapid change. Central banks are allowing more inflation and the printing press continues to run fast. Especially in the current summer lethargy, this can be an opportunity for people with foresight.

What is next for the global stock markets? Several experts are already passing around price targets of 20,000 points for the DAX due to a lack of investment alternatives. At the same time, the bear camp sees the bursting of the bubble, which was created by the massive financial injections of the FED, coming our way as early as this summer and predicts a crash of unimagined proportions.
