After months of selling off, Greentech shares are making a comeback. By late fall, popular hydrogen and solar stocks had lost between 50% and 85% of their share prices from the boom times of 2020/21. Now, everything points to a rebound. Battery innovator Altech Advanced Materials is also coming up with good news. If everything goes according to plan, lithium-ion technology could soon see a dramatic increase in efficiency. We take a look at the bombed-out sector and where the opportunities lie for investors.

    Siemens Energy - Price slump offers good entry zone

    Siemens Energy's Q4 reporting date this year promises to be extremely exciting. The Greentech high-flyer share was able to advance to EUR 24.80 until the end of May, boosted by the investment plans of the Berlin traffic light. Then, the problems at the Spanish subsidiary Gamesa became increasingly transparent, and in June, the first announcements were made about a pending EUR 4.5 billion write-down due to significant quality defects.

    Despite management's swift commitment and the announcement of a drastic quality offensive, the share price came under increasing pressure until the end of October. Rumors of an impending financing gap circulated and pushed the price down to EUR 6.45 at high volumes. Some analysts considered the fall in the share price to be exaggerated, especially given the importance of the energy technology group for the energy transition. An EUR 8 billion guarantee from Berlin was also quickly on the agenda, and the share price started to rise again. Most recently, it increased by a remarkable 50% in just four trading days.

    From an analytical point of view, Siemens Energy will end the fiscal year ending September 30 with a loss of just under EUR 5 billion or a minus of EUR 5.14 per share. According to the experts on the Refinitiv Eikon platform, earnings per share should rise again to EUR 0.37 and EUR 1.19 in the next two years. If these analyses hold true, the share would be valued at a P/E ratio of 7.5 based on 2025 estimates. With a market value of just under EUR 35 billion, the price/sales ratio is only 0.2. With a medium-term horizon, feel free to pick up a few shares; the downside risk is now manageable.

    Altech Advanced Materials - Good prospects for CERENERGY®

    The Frankfurt-based holding company Altech Advanced Materials has good news to report. This Greentech stock has also lost a good 30% since July without any visible reason. Research and development efforts are ongoing and require substantial funding, which the Company has now raised in full through several successive capital increases and the placement of a convertible bond. After full payment of the deposit, the new 4.237 million shares from the last capital increase with WKN A32C3Z are expected to be admitted to trading with the preparation of a securities prospectus. If BaFin approves the prospectus - which can be assumed - around 7 million shares would then be in circulation together with the old shares.

    Last week, there was an update on the CERENERGY® project. The ongoing feasibility study now estimates an annual production capacity for the new storage facilities of up to 120 MWh. As a result of technical design optimization in collaboration with the joint venture partner Fraunhofer IKTS and the participating subcontractors and further tests, the plant output could be increased by 20% without the need for additional investment. The feasibility study for the realization of the production plant is in progress and is to be published in the coming months.

    Altech is positioning itself with good initial parameters in the field of energy storage and e-mobility. The innovations on show are a clear component of the politically desired energy transition, as the CERENERGY® sodium chloride solid-state battery is ideally suited for stationary intermediate storage operation. All the necessary materials can be sourced from Europe, minimizing dependencies in the supply chain. Taking into account total costs and daily charging cycles, solid-state technology promises a cost advantage of around 50% compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries. Altech is currently producing the industrial prototype of the new 60kWh battery pack together with Fraunhofer.

    The Altech share has consolidated somewhat in the last 6 months. New shares will be coming onto the market soon, which will significantly increase the liquidity of free shares. With more trading and attention, the share's challenging fungibility will soon be history. Due to the high market capitalization, institutional investors may now start appearing on the radar.

    Nordex versus JinkoSolar - Wind or solar cell?

    Two other Greentech stocks are currently causing a sensation. In the case of Nordex, several margin warnings are weighing on the share price, which has fallen from a good EUR 15 to below EUR 10. Market participants are now looking ahead to November 14, as analysts have calculated a net profit of EUR 0.01 for the first time. Of course, this small upward swing cannot compensate for the poor start to the year, but at least the operating turnaround should be achieved in the current year. And by next year, earnings per share of 0.18 EUR could be in the books. From an analytical point of view, however, it will only become really interesting in 2025, as earnings of nearly EUR 0.70 are expected - that is at least a low double-digit P/E ratio from today's perspective.

    In JinkoSolar's case, the Q3 report is already history. The solar panel specialist earned CNY 24.21, equivalent to over EUR 3, in the quarter, and for the full year, it is expected to be around CNY 81. Currently, 4 out of 7 analysts have a buy recommendation. Assuming consistent earnings, JinkoSolar is currently valued at a long-term P/E ratio of around 4. Calculated on sales, this results in a low P/S ratio of 0.65. It is rare to find the Chinese technology stock at such an attractive valuation, and momentum is also pointing upward. Collect!

    There is movement in the Greentech sector. E-mobility, alternative energy generation and electricity storage remain the permanent climate protection topics. This means that Siemens Energy, Nordex, JinkoSolar and Altech Advanced Materials are part of a long-term megatrend. After a strong consolidation, all stocks now appear promising again.

    Sometimes, companies are forced to overhaul their business areas if they wish to survive. A transformation is then unavoidable, and hopefully, the companies emerge stronger in the end. However, there is also the possibility that management will recognize the signs of the times early on and adapt their business models. From traditional companies that are starting a second life through digital innovation to young start-ups that are becoming market leaders through strategic realignments, companies are constantly facing challenges. Their path to a golden future is characterized by visionary decisions, agile adjustments and an unwavering will to improve continuously. We have selected three candidates that are currently undergoing a transformation.

    After several years of stumbling from one crisis to another, pharmaceutical and agrochemical giant Bayer is now showing signs of a recovery on the horizon. As Bayer navigates its long and rocky road out of the crisis, investors and industry experts are now turning their attention to two other exciting biotech companies: Defence Therapeutics and BioNTech. Both companies, which have caused a sensation in the past mainly due to their revolutionary approaches in cancer therapy, could follow in Bayer's footsteps with their promising oncology pipelines, moving from uncertainty to a bright future.

    The 100% opportunity with Big Data and Artificial Intelligence: Nvidia, Softing, Microsoft and Super Micro Computer!

    Big Data, Web 3.0, IOTA and Artificial Intelligence are terms of the modern age. When the internet and high-tech stocks saw the light of day on the stock exchange during the dot-com bubble at the end of the 1990s, there were hundreds of companies with an idea but only a few customers, rarely any turnover, and certainly no profit. Now, 25 years later, computing power has increased a hundredfold, and the possibilities seem endless. Data for industry is finally usable, and consumers' usage behavior shows where manufacturers need to focus their products. We are in the age of complete transparency about movements, purchasing behavior and opinions. Large Internet companies such as Microsoft, Google and Apple have trillions of pieces of data at their disposal and the fastest mainframe computers to analyze them accordingly. With the deployment of machine learning, artificial intelligence knows no bounds. The stock market thrives on these advancements, with high-tech and AI stocks continuing to promise significant potential. However, it is worth taking a look at undiscovered followers.
