dynaCERT, Mkango, Saturn Oil & Gas - Future Issues for Investors

  • Mobility

The future is traded on the stock exchange and exciting topics as well as scalable business models have a good chance of increasing in popularity with investors. Energy is an important topic in the future and against this background, companies that have positioned themselves in this environment are particularly attractive. Various international companies have positioned themselves well and are gaining in importance on the German capital market. The dialogue between management and investors, analysts and media representatives provides insights and creates trust.

In recent years, the Canadian technology company dynaCERT has developed a solution for diesel engines that reduces fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Users of diesel engines in vehicles, locomotives, generators and trains can retrofit the hydrogen technology with the name HydraGEN.

The acquisition of a HydraGEN unit usually pays for itself within one year, e.g. for freight forwarders. Environmental protection, which is economically attractive and uses existing vehicles, conserves resources and is therefore an attractive bridging technology. The Federal Motor Transport Authority has issued a general operating licence for HydraGEN and the German logistics service provider MOSOLF would like to support the distribution in Europe. The focus is now on sales figures.


Mkango focuses on rare earths in Malawi. The portfolio includes four licenses and the Songwe Hill area is currently the focus of exploration and development. A current feasibility study will collect data to enable further development of the area and debt funding. The cost of the feasibility study will be borne by partner Talaxis, who will receive 49% of the Songwe Hill license.

Following the feasibility study, Talaxis may receive a further 26% of the license by assuming costs until production commences. Mkango had approximately CAD 11 million in cash on its account as of June 30, 2019 and currently has a market capitalization of CAD 20 million. The value driver for the Mkango share will be the size of the neodymium and praseodymium deposits, which have yet to be confirmed.


Saturn Oil & Gas is a Canadian oil producer focused on the Viking Formation in Saskatchewan. The company announced last week that it plans to drill four more wells and commence production before the end of the year. The company has already successfully commenced production with over 30 wells. By mid-year, Saturn Oil & Gas had generated sales of over CAD 10 million and profits of over CAD 2.8 million.

In view of the fact that the price of the WTI grade has stabilized at around USD 55 per barrel in recent weeks, the netback margin is currently expected to be around CAD 55. The worldwide demand for crude oil is unchecked and currently amounts to around 100 million barrels per day. Against this background, the company is an interesting growth story with production in Canada and the strict environmental regulations there.


In the coming weeks, three important events for analysts, investors and media representatives will take place in Germany. On 8 and 9 November 2019, the commodities scene will meet in Munich for the 'International Precious Metals & Commodities Fair'. This year's 'Deutsche Eigenkapitalforum' of Deutsche Börse AG will take place from 25 to 27 November 2019 in Frankfurt and this format has established itself in the past as one of the most important investor formats in Europe. Finally, the 'Munich Capital Market Conference' will take place on 10 and 11 December 2019.

During these three events dynaCERT and Saturn Oil & Gas will be available for discussions.

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.

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

  • Mobility

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.
