The frustration among tech investors seems to be over for the time being. After difficult weeks and months, shares from the technology sector are in demand again. This demand applies to tech giants from the US such as Apple, Alphabet as well as SAP. The DAX heavyweight was even able to shine with a forecast increase. Cooking box supplier HelloFresh can also convince investors and analysts with its foreign expansion. And the technology Company TalkPool reported a reference order. With the future topics SmartHome and IoT, the Swiss want to double sales in a few years.

TalkPool: Doubling sales with SmartHome and IoT

TalkPool wants to double its revenue to EUR 48 million by 2025 and achieve an EBITDA margin of 11% to 14%. The areas of SmartHome and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are expected to contribute more and more to this growth. The Swiss technology company has now received an important reference order in these exciting future fields. TalkPool subsidiary Home Solutions will upgrade the existing motor heating system for intelligent building management for a large housing association (BRF) west of Stockholm. The order is worth approximately SEK 4 million. The order includes delivery of the components, installation, local connection via wireless M-Bus, configuration of the individual measurement and billing function, and a service contract for around 400 motor heaters.

Home Solution already has around 50,000 BRF (housing association) apartments under contract throughout Sweden. The Company offers customers digitization and future-proofing of their properties, with services and functions such as electricity and water metering and billing, water leak detection, and fire detection easily added to Home Solution's digital platform. "We're seeing a lot of interest in many of the solutions and services we offer, especially individual metering and billing (IMB) for electricity. IMB typically provides great savings, and it also provides necessary infrastructure when customers install solar panels and charging stations. In addition, there has been a significant increase in interest and demand for IMB water, in part, due to the new regulation in Sweden requiring the installation of IMB water for new building construction and major renovations. We now also believe that together with our partners, we have a great new digital solution for engine heaters," says Andreas Göth, CEO of Home Solutions.

HelloFresh on course for expansion

HelloFresh is continuing its internationalization. After entering the Norwegian market a few months ago, the DAX newcomer is now opening to Italy. In the country of pizza and pasta, the concept of cooking boxes is hardly known so far. HelloFresh is therefore hoping for first-mover advantages. The Corona pandemic has accelerated the food delivery trend worldwide. Therefore, HelloFresh is optimistic to successfully gain a foothold in Italy and supply as many of the approximately 26 million households with cooking boxes as possible. Analysts of Deutsche Bank are particularly convinced by the business model. They recently raised their price target from EUR 105 to EUR 107 and recommend buying the stock.

SAP: Convincing figures and price target of EUR 142

"Our strategy is clearly paying off," said a pleased SAP CEO, Christian Klein. "We are experiencing record demand for our applications and our platform." The DAX heavyweight created a good mood among investors with its preliminary quarterly figures. The Q3 figures were indeed impressive. In particular, the success in the cloud business was convincing. The German tech giant increased cloud revenues in Q3 by 20% year-on-year to EUR 2.4 billion. That shows that customers are embracing the cloud transformation. Accordingly, license revenues declined by 8%. As part of the announcement of the figures, the annual targets were raised for the third time within a few months. Due to the expected continued positive development in the cloud business, currency-adjusted operating profit is expected to be in a range of EUR 8.1 to 8.3 billion in 2021. The investment bank Jefferies recommends SAP shares as a buy with a price target of EUR 142.


"Tech is back" is the current slogan on the stock market. And the companies are thanking us with good news. SAP raises its forecast, HelloFresh continues to expand, and TalkPool takes an important step towards doubling its sales.

XPeng, Meta Materials, Aixtron - Welcome to the Metaverse

  • Technology

Sound fundamental analysis is essential to be successful in the stock market in the long term; at least, this was the basic rule before the Reddit hype about GameStop & Co. The news that Facebook wants to reinvent itself under the name "Meta" prompted investors to buy shares in the Company of the same name. The Company is quite promising and has great potential in the long term due to the development of new materials for 5G, photovoltaics and consumer electronics. From our side, "Congratulations, dear Meta shareholders."

Rivian Automotive, BrainChip, Infineon, Nvidia - These are jumps à la Tesla!

  • Technology

It looks like technology investors are moving into the all-in phase. Certain industries are likely expected to grow indefinitely, and this is especially true for e-mobility, lithium, hydrogen, and most recently, the chip industry. Despite all understanding for the improved prospects due to the omnipresent shortage and the political closing of ranks in favor of climate-friendly technologies, does this mean that one has to pay price-turnover ratios of 100 or even 1000 on the stock exchange? The new automotive stock Rivian had a valuation of over USD 150 billion right at the start of the stock market and had not yet sold a single car. In the year 2000, it was also thought that sales and profits could not be a benchmark for share price performance.

Alibaba, TalkPool AG, Baidu, Tencent - Brutal sell-off, what is next here?

  • Technology

The sell-off of Chinese tech giants is now entering the next round. This time it is not the regulator but a cautious outlook for the future. Alibaba's share price felt the negative sentiment yesterday and is firmly back in the grip of the bears after an interim recovery of over 30% since summer. The NASDAQ has been unimpressed with Chinese company forecasts for weeks, sending its own growth stocks from high to high. We take a look at the dynamic sector.
