Keeping the economy moving requires energy. This energy can come from a variety of sources. Fossil fuels, such as oil and gas, have come under fire for their CO2 emissions. However, what is clear is that these energy sources will remain important for a long time to come. As a climate-neutral alternative, electricity from renewable sources is gaining in importance. However, this requires investments in storage facilities and transmission lines. We present three stocks related to the energy sector.

    Gazprom: Resistance ahead!

    Gazprom is a true giant when it comes to energy. The Russians hold around 17% of the world's proven reserves of natural gas. After the pandemic had a bit of an impact on Gazprom's figures and the controversy surrounding the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline, the situation has calmed down again. The pipeline is being completed, and it also became clear that Gazprom will also do good business with China in the future. The Company is building a pipeline through Siberia to the east to achieve this.

    The stock has been experiencing an upswing for a few days now. In the past month alone, Gazprom has gone up 7.7%. It shows that oil and gas companies will not disappear from the scene for a long time yet. Over the course of a year, Gazprom has gained a whopping 66%. Currently, however, the share is stalking a long-term high and could encounter resistance there. The stock is also attractive because of its dividend, but growth should be limited.

    Kodiak Copper: Forest fire danger averted - it continues!

    In contrast, the small Canadian Company Kodiak Copper offers enormous growth opportunities. The MPD and Mohave projects offer attractive potential in terms of possible copper production. Especially MPD is considered advanced and has caused a sensation in recent months with some spectacular drill results. Last year, the share price jumped from CAD 0.46 to over CAD 3 between July and September. The reason was spectacular drilling results. In the meantime, the share has corrected and is trading around CAD 1.45. In Germany, that is just under EUR 1.00.

    Although the Company has successfully purchased land and drilled further successful wells, the price has fallen back. Part of the reason for this is the recent high risk of forest fires in Canada. In the meantime, however, Kodiak Copper announced that it would continue the work that had been interrupted. There is still only a two-week delay in the schedule. As copper is urgently needed for power grids and charging stations for electric cars, investors should keep Kodiak's shares on their radar. The projects are promising and on the notepads of many market participants.

    Nordex: The valley of tears has been crossed

    A prominent company when it comes to renewable energy for many German investors is Nordex. That is because the stock has been known for price rallies and also crashes in the past. In the meantime, however, Nordex has arrived in calmer waters. The Company is one of the leading suppliers of wind turbines. In 2020, the Company slipped deeper into the red because of the pandemic. Nevertheless, it increased its investments. In the final weeks of the year, incoming orders showed that things were looking up again. The bottom has now been passed.

    However, the share price has not yet really got back on track. In the past three months, the share price has fallen by just under 8%. Nevertheless, the chart shows signs of stabilization above the EUR 15 mark. However, if the share price slips below this level, it could face new difficulties. On the other hand, good news should boost the value and drive it toward EUR 20. The stock fits the spirit of the times but is currently not so hot. Nevertheless, investors should keep Nordex on their radar.


    While stocks like Gazprom or Nordex gradually reflect new operational developments in the share price, stocks like Kodiak usually react more dynamically. A forest fire can quickly cause the share price to fall. On the other hand, good drilling results can catapult the share significantly upwards. Investors should take this cyclicality into account and adjust their strategy accordingly. Kodiak Copper can be a good choice given the energy transition and electromobility and the resulting hunger for raw materials.

    What the heat turnaround means for copper: Siemens Energy, Kodiak Copper, ThyssenKrupp

    • Mining
    • Copper

    Investors looking for the latest trends often focus on metals such as rare earths, vanadium and lithium. But if you want to get the future into your portfolio, you don't have to rely on exotic elements; copper offers the best conditions. As the British Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) has shown on behalf of the International Copper Association, the demand for copper alone for climate-related refurbishment will increase to 160,000t by 2035 from the current 40,000t. That represents an annual growth rate of around 10%. We highlight three companies around the trend.

    Kodiak Copper, BYD, SolarEdge Technologies - Copper driving the energy transition

    • Mining
    • Copper
    • Electromobility

    Goldman Sachs forecasts a gap of copper on the world market equivalent to about 8 million tons. The reason for the shortage is the high demand due to electrification in the areas of mobility, energy supply and renewable energies. Companies such as BYD and SolarEdge, pioneers of the energy transition, use vast quantities of the coveted metal in their technical solutions. In the last 10 years, the raw materials market has focused on other metals. Kodiak Copper, on the other hand, has taken advantage of this time and secured large areas of copper mineralization in North America, the drilling of which is promising. A strategic move that is now paying off...

    Next push in e-mobility: Porsche, Kodiak Copper, Nio and BYD in investors' focus!

    • Copper
    • Renewable Energy

    It would not be correct to project the important raw material copper purely onto e-mobility. Of course, global copper demand is rising due to many electrical engineering applications. But it is also falling in the wake of a slowing construction boom. If fewer houses are built worldwide, the copper demand will fall more sharply than repeatedly forecast. In principle, however, the trend for 2024 and beyond points strongly upward. Mobility will have to make a major move in the direction of e-mobility if the climate targets of the politicians currently in power are to be implemented - out with the combustion engine, in with e-mobility. In the medium term, this means three times as much copper is needed as in 2015. Which shares will come into focus?
