dynaCERT, TUI, Varta - where is it worth investing now?

  • Investments

The Corona Pandemic has changed society and the economy in recent months. Topics such as social distancing did not exist in this extreme way before and has, for example, turned the travel industry upside down. As a result of government rescue measures, airlines and travel companies had to be provided with liquidity so that the systemically important corporations did not slip into insolvency through no fault of their own and much larger and more uncontrollable losses were caused by a domino effect. But a lot has also happened in the technology sector and there are exciting developments that can be lucrative for investors.

Partnership in the fight against climate change

The Canadian technology company dynaCERT has brought an innovation to the market that makes existing diesel engines more environmentally friendly. The technology uses hydrogen as a catalyst and can therefore reduce the emission of pollutants. In addition, fuel consumption is reduced and, in addition to environmental protection, an economic advantage is created.

dynaCERT recently announced that the company's HydraGEN (TM) units will now also participate in the United Nations program called "United 4 Smart Sustainable Cities". This means that dynaCERT is now an official partner of the United Nations in the fight against climate change in cities around the globe. Some 200 cities around the world have already joined the program, including capitals in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and North and South America. This partnership offers the company enormous sales and profit potential. The analysts of GBC see a price potential for the share of EUR 2.20.

Setback due to travel warnings

The German TUI Group clearly felt the effects of the travel restrictions and is therefore eligible to participate in the so-called Corona Shield of the German government. The largest aid package of the Federal Republic of Germany enables payments to be made via the state-owned Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW). In the second quarter of 2020 TUI has already received a payment of EUR 1.8 billion. Due to the ongoing precautionary measures the travel industry is still severely restricted and TUI requires a further credit line of EUR 1.05 billion from KfW.

Against the background that the number of Covid-19 infections is on the rise again in many holiday regions, the industry is still far from normal travel behaviour. The travel warning issued by the German Foreign Office for Spain was a severe setback for the industry, as destinations such as Mallorca are among the most popular holiday destinations.

Competence and growth

The shares of battery manufacturer Varta can benefit from the trends of cordless headphones and the electrification of mobility. The business with lithium-ion cells is booming and the company was recently able to adjust its expectations for the current fiscal year upwards. Sales are expected to increase by up to 129% year-on-year to EUR 810 to 830 million, exceeding the previous estimate of up to EUR 800 million.

With a market share of over 50% in rechargeable batteries for headphones, Varta's competence is undisputed and this market is extremely interesting due to its annual growth of up to 40%. Varta has received EUR 300 million from the German government for research and development and the first industrial application of next generation lithium ion cells. The analyst von Berenberg has raised the target price of the share from EUR 120.00 to EUR 140.00 and left the rating at 'buy'.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

K+S, Grenke, Desert Gold: When does uncertainty become an opportunity?

  • Investments

When shares make losses over weeks and months, shareholders hope for an end to the sell-off. Potential buyers ask themselves whether the investment opportunity has already arisen. But the end of a downward trend can always only be determined afterward and can hardly ever be determined exactly. Rather, investors must shed light on the background to a price decline to decide whether it is permanent or merely temporary. The K+S fertilizer group has already been selling off for many years - on a five-year horizon a loss of more than 80% has been recorded - but what is the reason for this?

Deutsche Bank, Daimler, Triumph Gold: What about these fallen angels?

  • Investments

When investigative journalists immerse themselves in the world of business, the name of Deutsche Bank is mentioned more and more often. Despite countless legal disputes and fines in recent years, the news flow does not end, the latest accusations being activities that observers call money laundering. The documentation surrounding the business relationship between Donald Trump and Deutsche Bank has cast what was once the world's largest financial institution, in a bad light. Although Trump had owed money to one department of the bank for a long time, another department of the bank lent money to the then dazzling real estate mogul to pay off his debts. Many investors would certainly not have thought that such a transaction, based on the principle of right pocket to left pocket would be possible at all. Deutsche Bank rejected a comment on the above-mentioned incident concerning banking secrecy.

Almonty, BASF, Bayer: where is it worth starting now?

  • Investments

The start of the week was marked by price losses. In Europe and North America, the leading indices closed in the red. The fear of further effects of the Corona Pandemic has dampened market sentiment. Given that the banknote presses are still running, the breather on the capital markets is again likely to be short-lived. At the time when a vaccine against Covid-19 receives approval, the economy will once again experience an unleashed boom - provided that people can and may want to return to their jobs. Which shares are worthwhile now?
