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.

    Copper massively missing - what to do? Nordex, Orestone Mining, JinkoSolar - Greentech shares in the focus of investors

    • Mining
    • Copper
    • Gold
    • GreenTech
    • Technology

    The energy transition in Europe can only work if critical metals such as copper, lithium or nickel remain available. For an almost complete electrification of road traffic from 2035 onwards, quantities of copper 3 to 7 times the current consumption are required. At present, however, hardly any new mines are coming on stream. It will therefore be exciting to see which copper source the EU will soon tap in order to supply industrial sites with the coveted metal. So the EU Council of Experts should urgently look for a few mining consultants and have the current decisions verified by the Fairy Tale Department. How do we manage it after all?

    What is next for gold? Since the beginning of November, gold prices have risen rapidly by over USD 300. Inflation figures in the US fell significantly during these months. Last week, therefore, all eyes were again on the inflation data in the US. Inflation fell in January, but not as much as experts had expected. Interest rate fears are already spreading again, pushing the indices down. If interest rates continue to rise, this will draw investors away from the gold market. However, state banks continue to buy gold. In January, Turkey purchased 68 tons of gold. We take a closer look at three gold companies.

    Copper on the rise: Kodiak Copper, BASF and JinkoSolar benefit

    • Mining
    • Copper
    • renewableenergies

    Global copper demand is estimated to double by 2035, requiring new mines, mine expansions and technological improvements at existing mines to boost production. One beneficiary of this boom is Kodiak Copper. Assay results from the recently completed drilling in late 2022 have increased the known mineralized envelope at both the Gate & Prime Zone discoveries at its British Columbia project. At the 6th International Investment Forum on February 15, CEO Claudia Tornquist will share more about this with interested investors. BASF is also taking steps to bridge the looming copper shortages due to high demand. A new cooperation is expected to accelerate copper mining. JinkoSolar, on the other hand, as a user of the highly sought-after metal, has struck another new deal. Hedge fund managers are excited.
