    Omicron displaces worries

    BP's stock is trading briskly on Tradegate today, gaining 1.70% to EUR 4.52, moving well away from the December 2021 low of below EUR 3.80. The European competitor Shell can record a price increase of 1.43% to EUR 21.56 and is also traded briskly. Within one month, the value of the share has risen by over EUR 3.00. The Corona pandemic seems to have lost its fright with the Omicron variant.

    Experts recommend share as a buy

    The share of the Canadian producer Saturn Oil & Gas was able to record a phased price increase of over 30% in the past four weeks. The share increased from a low of EUR 1.99 to a peak of EUR 2.70. Currently, the company's share price is unchanged from the previous day at EUR 2.50. Saturn was able to generate EBITDA of CAD 17.2 million in Q3 2021 with revenues of CAD 48.5 million. The company's market capitalization is around CAD 88 million at the current price of CAD 3.49. The analysts at GBC Research recently gave a price target of CAD 12.17 and the experts at Beacon Securities see the value at CAD 10.15 - both agree on the rating: BUY.

    After the European elections: Is it all happening now? Nel ASA, Kraken Energy, Siemens Energy, ThyssenKrupp and Nucera in focus

    • Mining
    • Uranium
    • renewableenergies
    • Energy

    Europe has voted, and the Green parties have suffered historic losses! Now, the energy debate is coming to the fore again. While Germany is focusing entirely on green energy in the future, other countries have long since turned the challenges of the time into action. Nuclear energy remains a "zero-zero solution", making France, the Czech Republic and Poland the biggest climate protection exporters in the EU. This is because many new state-of-the-art reactors are being built here. The electricity market is huge, as Germany alone will have to shut down its gas and coal-fired power plants over the next few years due to the CO2 reduction commitments from the Paris Agreement. This threatens to create a supply gap that can only be filled with alternative energies, nuclear power, or hydrogen. What should investors focus on now?

    Share price rise! Nel ASA, Rheinmetall, Almonty Industries - Which momentum share is running out of steam?

    • Mining
    • Tungsten
    • Defense
    • renewableenergies
    • Energy

    Will the Rheinmetall share end its consolidation and rise to a new all-time high? The chances are good. The armaments group is receiving one order after another - most recently from the German government and Lithuania. Analysts believe the share has around 30% potential. The Almonty Industries share has gained around 30% in recent months. The momentum for the tungsten producer is likely to continue. In China - the number one producer country - prices are rising to a 10-year high, and production is falling at the same time. This could hardly be a better time for Almonty to commission a new mine. The share price momentum at Nel ASA seems to be running out of steam. Or can the latest news provide support?

    Siemens Energy, Carbon Done Right Developments, ThyssenKrupp - Benefiting from the decarbonization megatrend

    The world faces the challenge of mitigating climate change and developing clean energy sources. Companies offering innovative solutions for a sustainable future will gain a competitive advantage in the long term. For energy-hungry industries in particular, it is difficult to meet all demand through clean energy generation, and so carbon credits are needed to offset CO2 emissions. Using CO2 certificates offsets emissions and thus makes a valuable contribution to climate protection. We take a look at Siemens Energy, a clean energy producer; Carbon Done Right Developments, which produces CO2 certificates; and ThyssenKrupp, which aims to convert its steel industry to hydrogen energy.
