Steinhoff, Defense Metals, Deutsche Bank - Good news
So now it has been presented, the new coalition agreement of the traffic light coalition, consisting of the SPD, FDP and the Greens. Besides the connoisseurs of cannabis, which is to be legalized in Germany, the banking and insurance industry should also be satisfied with the drafting. In addition, one focus of the alliance is on transformation in terms of the energy transition. The plan sounds optimistic, but implementation will be all the more difficult.Read

Climate conference ends: Nel, Plug Power and Defense Metals continue with momentum
After two weeks, the climate conference in Glasgow has come to an end. The results are manageable. Although coal and other fossil fuels were declared to be phased out for the first time, the wording was watered down several times. For example, it was only possible to agree on a call that the use of coal-fired power plants without CO2 capture should be "gradually reduced". But even without concrete resolutions, one thing is sure: the energy turnaround is in full swing, and investor darlings Nel and Plug Power are again stepping on the gas. Defense Metals could be due for a reassessment after the completion of drilling.Read

Nordex, Defense Metals, American Lithium: USA pushes lithium market - will rare earths follow?
The run on lithium has caused a furor on the stock market in recent weeks. Almost all companies with "lithium" in their names have made significant gains. The background to this is the governments' e-car offensive and a lot of government funding and subsidies for battery technology. The lithium required is held mainly in the ground by smaller companies. Investors who missed out on this wave may be wondering where the music will play next. To find out, one only has to spin the e-car story further: As Tesla, BYD or even VW's green runabouts are preferred to be charged with green electricity, rare earths could soon experience a similar hype. We present shares around the hype topics of e-mobility and the energy transition.Read

BYD, NIO, Defense Metals - Save the climate, make a profit!
No one at the G20 meeting had expected any great leaps forward in climate policy - the participants had already made sure of that in advance by lowering expectations considerably. Nevertheless, there was a common goal before the summit in Rome: to send a strong signal for the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. So postponed is not canceled. Of course, everyone is aware that this is the least that the heads of state and government of the 20 largest industrialized and emerging countries can do. After all, together, their countries are responsible for 80% of global greenhouse gas emissions. If they do not act, climate protection will be in a dire state. We take a look at exciting investments with climate relevance.Read

Defense Metals, Nordex, Xiaomi - Battle for raw materials intensifies
China is scaling back its magnesium production due to electricity problems. The Chinese government is aiming to reduce energy consumption and thus emissions. It will inevitably lead to supply bottlenecks worldwide, and in Germany, it will initially affect the metal industry. However, since China produces 90% of the world's magnesium, there are, in fact, no alternatives. Similar problems exist with tungsten and rare earths, needed for almost all new technologies, from renewable energies to consumer electronics and e-cars. If you want to reduce this dependence, you have to look for alternatives.Read

Defense Metals, Nordex, Varta - These are the reasons for the rising prices!
Rare earths are indispensable for the production of laptops, cell phones, electric motors and wind turbines. However, their extraction is complicated, which is why the supply is also relatively low. The EU has classified many of these metals as critical with regard to their availability given their great importance for many industries, also because of China's dominance as the largest supplier. Efforts to build rare earth mines outside China are proceeding at full speed.Read

NIO, Defense Metals, Plug Power - It is getting critical
Today we are faced with ever-tighter climate targets on the one hand and the availability of critical minerals for a safe and fast energy transition on the other. The disparity between scarce supply and steadily increasing demand is widening. There has been a threat of extreme scarcity and a crashing failure of the widely announced climate change for many years. The few producers of strategic materials are likely to have a bright future.Read

Standard Lithium, Defense Metals, Orocobre, Millennial Lithium: Separating the wheat from the chaff!
Lithium has become one of the most important metals in electromobility. Where all this lithium will come from is critical, as the logic behind electromobility is to generate more sustainable technologies. For more climate protection, mining companies must also fit into a sustainable concept. Lithium extraction should therefore follow high environmental standards and take place in an appropriate economic and social context. But beware: the overall market has recently stopped following every battle cry. Separating the wheat from the chaff is becoming a portfolio challenge!Read

BYD, Nel, Defense Metals: In which direction is it going?
After the significant setback on Monday, the stock markets are looking for a direction. Individual stocks have held up well in recent days. Among these is Nel. The hydrogen specialist was even able to gain on Monday. That was not the case with BYD, but the shares of the Chinese car manufacturer are holding up surprisingly well given the crisis surrounding the Evergrande real estate group and the regulatory fury of the Chinese government. In addition, there are positive reports from the Company. Defense Metals also has positive news to report. Initial drilling results exceed expectations. All three shares are benefiting from the trend towards alternative drives.Read

JinkoSolar, Defense Metals, Daimler - Sustainability only with rare earths
Rare earths are found in almost all new technologies such as smartphones, e-cars, etc. The leading supplier is China. Rare earths occur more often than one might think, but mining them is rarely economically profitable. Thus, China has a kind of monopoly position. With the trade dispute between the US and China brewing, more people realize that Western countries should seek alternative access to rare earths. If China limits exports, it would quickly lead to shortages. Accumulators or batteries would soon become scarce. Due to sustainability issues, the increased demand can already be seen in the increased prices for rare earths.Read
