Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla - who has the best Mobility shares?

The Corona Crisis is omnipresent. The discussions about CO2 emissions and climate targets have given way to the pandemic. The streets are empty and the population stays at home. People around the globe are taking a break - or rather, they are being asked to take a forced break and avoid social contact. For the economy, the state of deceleration and standstill is a maximum stress test. Conveyors stand still. Supplies are stuck. The finished products cannot find a customer and salaries must continue to be paid. The German government wants to help quickly and offers support programs for salaries. The state basically distributes tax money that has to be earned sooner or later.

About the author

A sinking star

Daimler is one of the most renowned German brands. The listed automaker is feeling the full force of the Corona Crisis, and its shares are listed at around EUR 23.00 not far from the lows reached during the financial crisis in February 2009, when the company's shares changed hands for around EUR 18.00. Five years ago, Daimler's star was particularly high at over EUR 89.00.

Since then, the value of the company has fallen by approximately 74% to EUR 24.6 billion. The fall in value of the carmaker can be attributed to the consequences of the diesel scandal, and modern electric cars are becoming slow-moving items. The current slowdown in the economy will have a noticeable impact on the purchasing power of Daimler's target group. The company is obviously in difficulties at the moment.

Environmental protection and competitive advantage

dynaCERT with its hydrogen technology for retrofitting has a sales market which should start again quickly after the phase of curfews and trade limitations. Ultimately, users of dynaCERT technology can save up to 20% fuel with their existing diesel vehicles and generators while protecting the environment. Up to 88% less NOx and 55% less particulate matter is released into the atmosphere. Furthermore, CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 10%.

Trucks with average usage recoup the purchase costs within less than one year. Especially in the industrial logistics sector, savings of this magnitude are a clear competitive advantage. The company has been endowed with capital through the recent capital injections by Canadian billionaire Eric Sprott (CAD 14 million) and German automotive logistics specialist Dr. Jörg Mosolf (CAD 14 million). The price decline of 66% within about one month makes the shares attractive.

Second car for millionaires

Tesla is focused on the production of battery cars. Given the fact that the charging process of vehicles of this type requires a particularly powerful infrastructure in order to achieve practicable charging times, the car manufacturer is still struggling for general market acceptance. Last month, Tesla carried out a capital increase of USD 2 billion following a sharp rise in share price. In the context of the current Corona Crisis, this latest capital injection may ensure the survival of the company.

If the fears of a recession prove true, battery car manufacturers will face difficult times. The value of Tesla shares has more than halved since February 2020 and the company still has a market capitalisation of USD 78.8 billion. Due to the currently low fuel costs, there is also little commercial pressure for users of combustion engines to switch to a battery car. Hard times are coming for the corporate leader.

Varta, Saturn Oil & Gas, Plug Power - something for everyone's taste

  • Mobility

"Tastes are different" - this applies to many areas of life. In terms of money and investments, there is a huge range of investment methods and strategies. Shares, which climb new highs, provide buy signals in the chart technique and make further rising prices likely. Then there is the broad mass of securities, which must consolidate and again by good enterprise developments be kissed awake and then again to the climbing of new all time highs start. Here are three stocks for all tastes.

BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and dynaCERT - the cleanest diesel ever

  • Mobility

In a recent vehicle test, experts examined the BMW 520d, Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 and VW Golf 2.0 TDI models in city traffic, on country roads and autobahns. The magazine 'Auto, Motor und Sport' and the British testing specialist Emissions Analytics have tested the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx) in road traffic under real conditions and the results are surprisingly good. The advantages of electric mobility are fading.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - Electromobility threatens setback

  • Mobility

The world stands still. Only a few vehicles are still rolling on the roads. Trucks supply the supermarkets with food and those who can, take their own car for shopping or for the way to work to avoid the risk of public transport becoming infected. However, most people currently spend most of their time at their home or home office, as it is now called. The exciting question these days is: when can the old normality finally start again? But there is also enormous uncertainty about the personal economic situation. Will your company or your employer manage to survive? The need to buy a new car in such a situation should be close to zero.
