The world is continuously changing and fast. Since the Corona pandemic, it has become clear to everyone that one needs to adapt to the circumstances. Companies that adapt and innovatively expand their business models for the future will come out on top. Others that cling desperately to old structures and technologies will disappear, regardless of the industry.

The clever alternative

With the invention of dynaCERT's "HydraGEN" technology, all fleet operators should breathe a sigh of relief. Instead of investing millions in new fleets, the patented hydrogen-based electrolysis system makes it possible to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 20% for large diesel engines. Currently, the Canadians' system is intended only for heavy machinery. In addition to trucks, the sales team deals with logisticians, heavy construction equipment, mining equipment, and diesel generators in ships and trains. In the long term, according to dynaCERT CEO Jim Payne, every owner of a diesel engine worldwide should be persuaded to use the Canadians' system.

Intelligent software inspires analysts

In addition to "HydraGEN," dynaCERT has programmed intelligent software that is already being used in test runs in more than 400 vehicles. With "HydraLytica," it is possible to record and analyze fuel savings. The fleet manager can also add fleet management, route planning, driver safety, and load management. Analysts at Haywood Capital Markets are enthusiastic about the technology, which has been in development for 16 years. They have placed the Company on their list of top picks for 2021. The experts' target price is CAD 2.20. Yesterday, dynaCERT was still quoted below CAD 0.90.

Now is the time to harvest

The largest financial community is growing up. Until December 2019, the wallstreet:online group, under the leadership of the innovative Company founder André Kolbinger, was known to aggressively plow the market of financial sites. As a result, the Company grew organically, and through acquisitions of sites such as finanznachrichten.de, boersennews.de, and Ariva.de, became the undisputed number one in this segment. After reaching a critical level, establishing an online broker was put on the table. This plan was implemented by December 2019, in time for the beginning of the Corona Crisis.

The zero Euro broker

Increasing trade activity during the lockdowns and the strategy of offering trades starting at zero euros brought in more than 70,000 account openings and over EUR 2 billion in assets under management as of the end of December 2020. Smartbroker is to be linked even more closely with the Company's own stock market portals in the long term. In the best-case scenario, the reader will find analysis, news item, or a chart on a specific share on wallstreet-online.de, finanznachrichten.de, or ariva.de and can trade immediately from the portal. Group sales across all business units are expected to increase between EUR 24.5 million and EUR 29.9 million in 2021 (previously estimated around EUR 26 million). Operating profit is expected to grow to EUR 5.0 million, from EUR 3.6 million in the past fiscal year. Smartbroker is part of wallstreet:online capital AG, in which wallstreet:online AG, in turn, has a stake of around 43% and is to hold the majority in the future.

From "Zero to one"

That's what star investor Peter Thiel must have thought when he invested five percent in Canadian mining Company Rock Tech Lithium this week, with an option for another five percent. Rock Tech Lithium wants to raise USD 400 million to build a lithium refinery in Germany. Company officials say they are in advanced discussions with investors and see Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt as possible sites for the refinery. Elon Musk, a companion from their PayPal days together, is building his Gigafactory practically in the neighborhood.

Cooperation with big players

It was also explicitly mentioned that Tesla could be considered as a strategic partner. A cooperation with Volkswagen AG, which maintains its e-car plant in Zwickau, is conceivable too. In addition to Thiel, the British hedge fund manager Alan Howard threw his hat into the ring with a minority stake. With just under 20%, the enterprising series founder Christian Angermayer is on board too. Rock Tech Lithium's share price has increased more than tenfold since December. This investment story is more than intact.

Steinhoff, Upco International, ProSiebenSat.1 - Facing a turnaround?

Are the stock indices at the turning point? Although the DAX once again reached new all-time highs this week, there was a lack of momentum to confirm them. A correction is already underway in tech stocks. The market for smartphone payments is also on the move. The Corona pandemic has reinforced the movement away from cash to contactless payment methods. The winners are companies that link multiple business areas.

What does lifestyle and wellness encompass for you? Being active? Being pampered? Or a good meal followed by an espresso or a cigarette? The latter has become much less popular with Germans in recent years; the smoking rate has more than halved since 1980. Instead, the trend is toward greater health awareness: light and healthy food, natural supplements and gentle medicine. This trend can be observed worldwide and is continuing successively without any dependence on the economic situation. Because one thing is clear: people are saving money on their health last. Ideal conditions to now look at the securities of the following three companies.
