Climate change, high gas prices, high oil prices and dependence on "difficult" energy suppliers: There are many reasons why hydrogen and electromobility are among the undisputed topics of the future. Shares from these sectors are also among the absolute favorites of investors. But despite this, many share prices are currently on a downward trend. These include the shares of Nel ASA, BYD and dynaCERT. Is now the time to enter? There is an analyst recommendation for Nel, but the outlook for the quarterly figures next week is causing fear. BYD is shining with record sales and wants to take a division public. dynaCERT's technology for reducing CO2 emissions is being recognized more and more. The board expects a strong current quarter, and the discussion about climate targets in the transport industry speak for the Canadians.

    dynaCERT: Will the breakthrough come in Q4?

    Will dynaCERT achieve a breakthrough in the commercialization of its technology for reducing CO2 emissions in the current fourth quarter? If CEO Jim Payne has his way, the answer to that question can be "yes." At the 4th IIF virtual investor conference, Payne said that major announcements can be expected in the fourth quarter. Large orders are expected, he said (link to presentation). The fact that dynaCERT's technology works and is recognized in the market is shown, among other things, by an award from the Canadian Windfall Ecology Centre. Alectra Utilities Corporation, for example, was recognized for using dynaCERT's HydraGEN technology to reduce fleet vehicle emissions and fuel costs.

    Alectra is dynaCERT's reference partner. In a pilot program, Canada's largest municipal electric utility has been using 13 vehicles equipped with dynaCERT's patented HydraGEN technology since last year. The data obtained is promising. Thanks to HydraGEN, over 8,000 kilograms of CO2 have been saved, and diesel consumption has been noticeably reduced. Specifically, there were the following savings: Fuel -10%, CO2 emissions -9.6%, NOx emissions -88.7%, CO emissions -46.7%, THC emissions -57%, particulate emissions (black smoke) -55.3%. This makes HydraGEN an excellent choice for the transportation industry to meet its climate goals. Because, as Handelsblatt has reported, the industry is likely to face stricter targets. The plan is for heavy-duty transport to reduce greenhouse emissions by 55% by 2030. But this is taking too long for many. Based on a study by the Dutch research institute TNO, calls are now being made to tighten the targets. No matter what the new laws look like, retrofitting the existing truck fleets is likely to be key. Here, dynaCERT could help.

    BYD: IPO of chip division planned and large truck order

    Shareholders of BYD have been asking themselves for weeks why the share price is not significantly higher. After all, the Company has only been reporting positive operating news. After the Chinese carmaker rushed from sales record to sales record in the electrified passenger car sector and replaced Tesla as the market leader, a major order has brought another division into focus. Within this year, BYD will deliver 120 electric tractor units to Mexico. The first 5 have now been handed over to Marva. The Mexican transport company has the ambitious goal of building the first all-electric tractor fleet in Latin America. BYD is thus showing that it is much more than a carmaker but can also do good business with batteries, commercial vehicles and monorail in the future. BYD is also getting more and more involved in semiconductors. The semiconductor division, BYD Semiconductor, is even to be spun off and floated on the stock market. In order to prepare the subsidiary for the leap from the stock exchange floor, BYD is investing in the division. Together with Fortune-Tech Capital and other partners, it is investing in Advancechip, a manufacturer of digital signal processors and another chip company. Despite all the good news, the share is trading at EUR 25, far from its June high of around EUR 40.

    Nel ASA: Afraid of the numbers?

    Nel ASA is currently under severe strain. In operational terms, the Company is not getting off the ground with slow growth rates, and the price chart is also severely battered. In euros, the share is approaching the penny-stock level. Yesterday, for example, the Nel share was temporarily quoted at just EUR 1.03. The reason could be the upcoming Q3 figures. On October 20, the Norwegians will report on the past three months. A strong sales growth is doubtful - at least no major orders have been reported - and the losses are likely to remain enormous. Even a positive analyst comment cannot help the share price at the moment. Jefferies has reinstated Nel in its coverage, and the analysts recommend the shares of the Norwegian hydrogen specialist as a buy with a price target of NOK 19. Political support in the US and Europe, and high energy prices should help the entire sector. However, the share has not been helped by this commentary so far.

    Hydrogen, electromobility and energy efficiency are topics of the future. BYD has positioned itself firmly in several areas. The share is likely to benefit from this. If the commercialization of dynaCERT gains momentum in the coming weeks, the share price should also pick up. The Nel share is ripe for a rebound in the short term, but sales growth must finally pick up in the medium term.

    Who builds the best battery? Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, SFC Energy, IBU-tec - The entry is tempting!

    • Energy
    • renewableenergies
    • GreenTech
    • Batteries

    Three years ago, the Chinese battery market leader CATL presented its cell-to-pack technology to the world for the first time. A new battery with this design is now said to give e-vehicles a range of 1,000 km and super-fast charging in just 10 minutes. According to CATL, the "Qilin" battery is more powerful than Tesla's 4680 cells. CATL plans to begin mass-producing the new battery in 2023. Whether the promised distance will be achieved, however, depends on the size of the installed battery and the vehicle's aerodynamics. In Europe and North America, research and development is also being carried out at full speed because the market for e-mobility still promises growth of over 30% per annum. What is the current status in Germany?

    First Hydrogen, Tesla, Volkswagen - Hydrogen or battery drive, who makes the race?

    • Hydrogen
    • Electromobility
    • GreenTech

    The German Federal Ministry of Research and Education has big plans: the natural gas network is to be converted as a supply structure for hydrogen so that Germany is well equipped for the future. The Canadian company First Hydrogen is betting on hydrogen propulsion, launching its first production facility in Quebec. A call for leadership is being heard regarding Elon Musk and his car company Tesla. It seems that a blue bird and the desire for freedom of expression are taking up so much of his time that the share price is wobbling. The competition is not sleeping: Volkswagen is currently number one in Europe with its EV models. Who will make the race?

    Comeback stocks: Nel, Aurora Cannabis, Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • Hydrogen
    • Cannabis

    Gold, cannabis and hydrogen could be among the top trends of the coming year - also on the stock market. Due to full order books, Nel could be poised for a comeback in 2023. At least sales are already secured until mid-2024. Now, all that is left is to cut the loss to reach analysts' price targets. Aurora Cannabis has largely completed its turnaround and is also hoping for legalization in Europe and the US. Driven by a strong gold price, mining stocks have already jumped. Now exploration companies should follow. Tocvan Ventures is one of them. And with the gold explorer, investors can look forward to a regular news flow in the coming year. Are the three candidates comeback stocks in 2023?
