Goodbye banks - the Greentech rally is on: Shares of BYD, Canadian North, Mercedes Group and BMW are in focus!
Blunt, clear text - that is what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change had promised, in case governments still did not get it. The latest "State of the World Report" is clear. Hesitation is a thing of the past. The message: action is needed now and must be taken worldwide. This is the conclusion of the so-called synthesis report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was presented yesterday in Interlaken, Switzerland. Leading scientists have spent the past week wrestling with more than 650 government representatives to lay things out as transparently as possible. The conclusion is quickly formulated: Full throttle for the Greentech industry!Read

Armaments and e-mobility! Rheinmetall, Almonty Industries, Mercedes-Benz - Rare raw materials in demand as never before!
The climate and energy transition are taking their toll. Long approval phases, too little exploration and a lack of investment capital have caused the supply of raw materials to decline over the past 10 years. These deficits are increasingly showing up as a problem for industry. In copper alone, there is a USD 100 billion investment deficit. In the EU, it is estimated that there is an investment backlog of EUR 300 billion to even come close to achieving the proclaimed climate targets. To reach climate targets, copper, nickel, lithium, zinc, special metals like tungsten, and rare earths are needed. Which values should you bet on now?Read

Mercedes-Benz, Almonty Industries, Rheinmetall - New battery trend from Korea
Major companies like Mercedes-Benz are fully committed to electric mobility. This can be seen in the numerous initiatives to open factories worldwide. Whether in Hungary, Thailand or Germany, Mercedes is planning a dense network of battery factories. But where are the raw materials coming from? And which batteries will prevail in the future? We provide an overview and highlight a new battery trend from South Korea.Read

dynaCERT, Mercedes-Benz, BYD - Is hydrogen the better alternative to electromobility?
New government measures are driving the shift from fossil fuels to renewables. While some of these measures defy logic (combustion car ban in the EU in 2023), others are leading to market changes that have a meaningful impact. The US Inflation Reduction Act, for example, is funneling money into the expansion of a nationwide hydrogen fueling station infrastructure. This is excellent news for the logistics industry, as tough cost calculations will determine the pros and cons of new forms of propulsion for heavy-duty trucks and commercial vehicles. This represents a market opportunity for the Canadian company dynaCERT, which provides switchable hydrogen drives. Hydrogen weighs less than electric batteries, and on the road, every kilogram counts for the freight. The Mercedes-Benz Group, including Daimer Truck AG, is also betting on hydrogen. China competitor BYD, meanwhile, has to reckon with cancellations for EV batteries because the devil is in the details here.Read

Inflation picks up again! Here is what the figures mean for Mercedes-Benz, Power Nickel and Varta
Inflation rates in the US remain high. Consumer prices rose more than expected in January. For investors, this has several meanings: On the one hand, the spectre of recession is likely to have been dispelled; on the other hand, the US Federal Reserve could continue to turn the interest rate screw. What does this mean for innovative companies involved in the mega-trend of electrification? We provide the answers!Read

Are E-cars facing the end? Mercedes-Benz, dynaCERT, NEL
What constitutes mobility is changing. There are also many mobility terms. It is increasingly difficult for automakers to position themselves. Except for BMW, all major manufacturers are now focusing exclusively on battery-powered e-cars. The trend is even so intact for decision-makers at major corporate headquarters that type designations introduced for e-cars are facing extinction. But not all automakers are convinced that e-cars are the way to go.Read

First Hydrogen Corp., Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz Group - Hydrogen or electric drive, who will win the race in Automotive?
Europe is gearing up for a zero-emission sweeping blow. Volkswagen and the Mercedes-Benz Group, two globally producing automotive groups, are launching the electric initiative to say goodbye to the combustion engine quickly. The Canadian company First Hydrogen Corp., on the other hand, is benefiting from its own agility and, together with its strong cooperation partners, is already in the test phase for hydrogen-powered vans on British roads. Its USP is the 360-degree solution for fleet operators. Hydrogen is ahead of battery-powered electric vehicles in terms of range - who will win the race for CO2-free powertrains in Europe?Read

Tesla share continues to crash! Volkswagen, BYD, Kodiak Copper, Mercedes - E-mobility in distress?
E-mobiles still account for a single-digit percentage of all vehicles worldwide, but the growth trends speak a clear language: the world will electrify in mobility! Anyone following the price of copper should note one important point - copper is an important industrial metal that is not only used in cars. The biggest consumers are the construction and infrastructure industries. And these sectors are suffering from extreme inflation, high interest rates and the resulting economic decline in demand. For the copper price, of course, this also means no exuberant scarcity at present, and thus falling prices from around USD 5.00 to currently around USD 3.80 per pound. So, as with all commodities, timing in the economic cycle is the key determinant of investment success. Which stocks are in focus now?Read
