The 2024 share rocket without e-funding - BYD, Defense Metals, Porsche and Volkswagen

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility

With the supplementary budget 2023, the fate of the e-funding was sealed. On December 16, the purchase premium hammer came down in an "ad hoc announcement" from Berlin: The funding of up to EUR 4,500 for the purchase of a new e-vehicle has expired with immediate effect. This was announced by the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA). The deadline for applying for the funding ended on December 17, 2023, meaning that e-mobility is now a thing of the past. Only the reduced tax rate under the company car scheme and the general exemption from vehicle tax remain. Consumer advocates are complaining about the unequal treatment of different mobility concepts that have prevailed for years, and the Federal Constitutional Court will likely have to deal with this issue in due course. Time for investors to rethink - where are the opportunities in the investment year 2024?

Edison Lithium, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen - Electric car premium cancelled: What now?

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility

While electric cars are gaining ground worldwide, the German federal government has decided to end the environmental bonus for electric vehicles. New applications are no longer possible, leading to uncertainty about the future of the e-car market in Germany. This puts the target of 15 million electric cars by 2030 in jeopardy. We will, therefore, look at two of the leading car manufacturers in Germany and analyze what impact this decision will have. We will also look at Edison Lithium, a company that can provide the critical raw materials for electric vehicles. The demand for lithium and cobalt will increase significantly in the coming years.

Renewable Energy in Focus: First Hydrogen, Siemens Energy and Volkswagen present groundbreaking technologies - Which share leads the way?

  • Hydrogen
  • greenhydrogen
  • renewableenergies
  • Technology

Renewable energy is increasingly taking center stage for investors. Companies like First Hydrogen are setting new standards by developing advanced hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles. However, the figures have to be right. While Siemens Energy struggles with the challenges in the energy sector, a large proportion of the Company's shares are being shifted to the pension fund, which could have severe consequences for investors and employees. On the other hand, Volkswagen is responding to the German government's austerity measures. It is taking over the previous state's share of the environmental bonus for electric vehicles as a goodwill gesture. However, this seems to be merely a gesture in light of the Company's restructuring program that is launching in Germany. These developments shed light on technological advancements and business adaptations in the era of green transformation.

COP28 - Acting on climate change in 2024! Nel ASA, Manuka Resources, BYD and VW - more than 200% is possible

  • Mining
  • Vanadium
  • Gold
  • GreenTech
  • renewableenergies
  • Electromobility

Despite all reservations, the science is unanimous! Failing to limit global warming will pose significant risks to humanity in the next two decades. At the end of the World Climate Conference in Dubai, the revised resolution text was adopted without objection by almost 200 countries. COP28 President Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber described the outcome as "historic" and a "foundation for transformative change". The agreement calls for a global transition away from fossil fuels. It is thus the first resolution of a UN climate conference that concerns the future of all energies - including oil, natural gas, and coal. Criticism and rejection came from the Gulf States, as they intend to continue their "Affordable Oil & Gas from the desert sand" business model. How do typical GreenTech shares react to the latest climate policy?

Volkswagen, Desert Gold Ventures, Morphosys - Position for the rebound

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Electromobility
  • Biotechnology

Last week's interest rate decision in the USA was the final starting signal for further price rises. In addition to equities, gold, silver, and several cryptocurrencies also shot up. Therefore, the last weeks of the year should end with further positive signs. Despite the record high in many indices, there are increasing rebound opportunities that could outperform the broad market in the near future.

dynaCERT, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz - Renewable energies in focus, feasibility and speed are key

  • Hydrogen
  • greenhydrogen
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

This year's international climate conference, "COP28", is coming to an end with a strong statement. For the first time, the participating nations have committed themselves in writing to developing their energy resources away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energies. Host country Dubai, under the patronage of Sultan Al Jaber, achieved consensus among all participating countries. According to the agreement, countries are called upon to contribute to a global transition rather than being directly forced to implement this change independently. A company like dynaCERT, which has been campaigning for years for a CO₂-reducing hybrid solution to power diesel trucks in the logistics sector, could be on the verge of a breakthrough. The Company has already raised CAD 2.0 million in gross proceeds from an ongoing private placement, which it will now use to expand its technology. Meanwhile, Volkswagen plans to hire around 3,000 engineers in China to keep pace in the EV market. Mercedes-Benz, meanwhile, is expanding its offering in Dubai with an unusual move to maximize profits...

Uranium, lithium or gold? The climate conference tells us which way to go! BYD, Globex Mining, VW and Mercedes!

  • Mining
  • Uranium
  • Lithium
  • Gold

At the international climate conference in Dubai, several Arab countries sharply criticized and ultimately rejected the global move away from fossil fuels. The move by Western countries is an "aggressive attack", said Kuwaiti Oil Minister Saad Hamad Nasser al-Barrak yesterday, Tuesday. "I am astonished by this extraordinary insistence on depriving people and many countries of their basic source of energy. This approach is racist and colonialist," al-Barrak continued. This means that there will be no decision on a global phase-out of oil and gas with the OPEC states. Therefore, the current World Climate Conference is likely to be inconclusive or conclude with unilateral declarations from the EU. However, there is much to suggest that commodities that positively impact the global climate will remain on the import list of industrialized countries. Which shares should be considered in this mixed situation?

Next lithium boom in 2024? Freyr Battery, Edison Lithium, VW, Mercedes - Where are the 100% gainers?

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • RareEarths
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

The year 2024 promises to be highly interesting, that much is certain. The so-called electric boom has not yet taken place, and the falling lithium price of minus 80% in the current year speaks volumes. Of course, major investments such as a relatively expensive electric vehicle depend on the general situation and subsidies. However, neither of these contextual factors bode well. On the contrary, state subsidies are falling, and high inflation is weighing on private household budgets. So why not get the good old diesel through the MOT again? After all, continuing to drive an old vehicle is 100 times more sustainable than buying a new electric vehicle with rare and difficult-to-extract metals. While green thoughts are commendable, the costly construction of so-called gigafactories continues. On the stock market, the question arises: Who will ultimately emerge as the winner?

Growth Industries in Focus: Investors see potential in Defense Metals, BASF and Volkswagen shares

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility

Investors are looking for opportunities in growing markets. Looking at industries currently requiring rare earths - such as energy, defense, electromobility, and many more - leads to the mining sector. Someone has to supply the valuable raw materials so these industries can continue growing. Defense Metals' Wicheeda project in Canada shows promising results, particularly the increase to 6.4 million tons with a TREO content of 2.86%. BASF secures EUR 124.3 million in government funding for a green hydrogen plant in Ludwigshafen, planned in collaboration with Siemens Energy. Volkswagen is facing challenges, emphasized by VW board member Thomas Schäfer, who announced tough cuts to maintain competitiveness without closing plants. Volkswagen will have to respond to change with a more agile approach, especially as China advances in electromobility.

After the corrections of recent weeks, the bulls have regained the sceptre. Despite the uncertain geopolitical situation and supported by an easing interest rate front, technology stocks were also able to recover significantly from their recent lows for the year. In addition, Germany's leading index, the DAX, knocked on the psychologically important 16,000-point mark. Overcoming this level will likely result in an attack on the all-time high at 16,532 points still within this stock market year.
