After the election, buy a combustion engine now? Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Globex Mining and BYD on the test track

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

The crushing defeat of the green camp in the EU elections has caused a stir in the automotive industry. Will the ban on combustion engines be overturned in favour of a general openness to technology? It is well known that the best conventional vehicles come from Germany, and they are demonstrably no more harmful to the climate than current e-vehicles. Voters have finally lifted the green veil, and the doctrine of the know-it-alls is now in retreat. From a climate perspective, investing in battery storage systems makes sense, but they do not necessarily have to be installed in vehicles. How can investors benefit from the current situation?

Volkswagen changes strategy! Can Power Nickel and Rheinmetall benefit?

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • Defense
  • Electromobility

In an increasingly volatile global economy, companies face unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Although Volkswagen, Power Nickel, and Rheinmetall may appear to represent different industries at first glance, the companies are often interconnected. Now that Volkswagen, as an automotive giant and key player in the mobility sector, is suddenly adjusting its strategy, it is worth taking a closer look at the impact on other companies. We explain Volkswagen's adjustments and where there are overlaps with Power Nickel and Rheinmetall.

Attention e-mobility 2.0, now China is in demand! BYD, Almonty Industries, VW, and Mercedes in focus

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Electromobility

Even though e-mobility has stuttered in Germany since the scrapping of the environmental bonus, the production of new vehicles "Made in China" is running at full speed. Manufacturers are still trying to pack more range, durability and stability into the units. Conceptually, electric vehicles only make sense if inexpensive electricity can be used for charging. Fast charging stations on the highway cost between 55 and 95 cents per kilowatt hour; Tesla charges an average of 43 cents but asks external customers to pay up to 64 cents. Without the tax disadvantage, optimized diesel vehicles have the same operating costs as electric vehicles. Where the combustion engine clearly scores points, however, is in winter operation, independence, and range. What is more, the battery in an electric vehicle needs to be replaced after 10 years, while the diesel engine has only just warmed up with 150,000 km of performance. Where are the opportunities for shareholders?

Attention: DAX dividends! Car stocks pay out: Mercedes-Benz, MS Industrie, VW and BMW

  • Technology
  • hightech
  • Automotive
  • Electromobility

The DAX 40 index has gone into reverse gear in recent weeks. In addition to the high-tech and artificial intelligence sectors, the multi-month bull market also included defense stocks in the interim phase. There is no real reason to celebrate among automotive stocks, as an expected decline in GDP also means reduced household budgets. This translates to fewer new vehicle sales, with many electric vehicles produced in bulk occupying important showroom space from dealers for months. The pain is increasing, and those looking to sell vehicles find themselves in ruinous discount battles with cheap Chinese imports. However, there appears to be a glimmer of hope on the horizon: interest rate cuts! They are expected in the second half of the year. We analyze the current situation.

Volkswagen, Altech Advanced Materials, BYD - who can benefit from China's rise

  • Innovations
  • Technology
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

Chinese companies such as BYD benefit from state subsidies and domestic access to raw materials. BYD's subsidies have risen from EUR 220 million in just three years to EUR 2.1 billion. These sums are helping BYD dominate the Chinese electric vehicle market and increasingly penetrate the European market. Volkswagen cannot escape the pull of China either. As part of its "In China, for China" strategy, Volkswagen is expanding its cooperation network with Chinese partners. The aim is to reduce costs significantly in the development of EV technology. For companies like Altech Advanced Materials, close cooperation with Chinese market leaders such as BYD and Volkswagen offers the opportunity to commercialize innovative battery technologies that meet the needs of the changing market. One of these innovations, made in Germany by Altech Advanced Materials, increases the longevity of EV batteries by 30%. Here are the details.

Volkswagen, Altech Advanced Materials, RWE - Use the dip in electrification companies for your portfolio

  • Technology
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

The future is electric. With the growing number of electric vehicles, energy storage technologies are also gaining enormous importance. These technologies form the backbone of a reliable, environmentally friendly energy landscape - they store energy from renewable sources and ensure that electricity flows even when the sun and wind are taking a break. Such progress not only promises a smaller ecological footprint but also a new era of energy independence. We have selected three companies that are helping with electrification.

Watch out: DAX record chase! Automotive stocks in the fast lane: Mercedes-Benz, Globex Mining, VW and Tesla

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • hightech
  • Electromobility

The DAX 40 index is chasing from one high to the next, surpassing the 18,400 mark yesterday. In addition to artificial intelligence, it is primarily high-tech and defense stocks that are moving the market. The automotive stocks are still in the doldrums, as an expected decline in GDP also means smaller household budgets. Nothing is worse for the industry than the postponement of new car purchases until next year. The stockpiles are getting bigger, and dealers are plunging into desperate discount battles. However, the market is changing noticeably. Currently, there are clear buying candidates; we analyze the current situation.

Volkswagen, Defense Metals, BYD, Rheinmetall - China's weapon in the tech race

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility
  • hightech

In the shadow of global power rivalries, rare earths play a crucial role, not only for the defense industry, but also for the booming electric vehicle market and the production of catalytic converters in the automotive industry. These metals are the invisible backbone powering high-tech devices and are of strategic importance for the global economy and security. China's dominance in extracting and processing such resources - as illustrated by Deng Xiaoping's statement: "The Middle East has oil. China has rare earths." - sheds light on potential geopolitical tensions and highlights the importance of supply chain diversification and resilience.

Defense Metals, Coinbase, Volkswagen: Critical metals for pioneering technologies

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • crypto
  • AI
  • Electromobility

The demand for critical metals is increasing rapidly worldwide. From growing digitalization to the increased use of cryptocurrencies and AI, from advances in medical technology to electromobility and defense technology - all these areas rely on these critical raw materials. Defense Metals Corporation is an experienced explorer in British Columbia whose Wicheeda project is designed to provide these critical metals. Forward-thinking companies like the crypto exchange Coinbase serve many users who use rare earth metals to power their hard drives for crypto mining. Volkswagen also requires this raw material because car consumers in China have very different needs when it comes to vehicle software than those in the European market. A new CEO for the subsidiary and software company CARIAD knows exactly what needs to be done...
