IAA Mobility - There is more to come! Pressure on Volkswagen, BYD and Power Nickel increases

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • Electromobility

The IAA Mobility closed its doors over the weekend. It was supposed to exude glitz and glamour, but the spark in the field of e-mobility doesn't seem to be flying, and sales figures are declining in Germany. There were only a few real innovations in Munich, but at least progress is being made with e-bikes. More than half of the 750 exhibitors came from abroad, a fact that the German automotive industry is feeling more and more. The Chinese manufacturer BYD presented five models, which will soon be launched in Germany. They are in direct competition with Volkswagen's ID range. Where do the opportunities lie for investors?

Strategic turning points in Chemicals, Automotive and Energy: Investment opportunities with Defense Metals, Volkswagen and BASF

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility
  • Digitization

Rare earths are becoming increasingly important due to digitalization, especially for the electronics industry. Defense Metals, a company from Canada, is focusing on the extraction of rare earths at the Wicheeda project. Geotechnical investigations are progressing rapidly in order to develop the valuable raw material. Volkswagen reports an impressive 17.9% increase in car sales in July. Nevertheless, the Company is lowering its annual sales forecast due to growing competition in China. Germany's energy transition is affecting major corporations like BASF. The US company Cheniere Energy will supply BASF with liquefied gas in the future. To adapt to the new market conditions, BASF has successfully completed the spin-off of its mobile exhaust catalyst and precious metal services businesses. The new site surprises.

Is Artificial Intelligence facing a crash? Facing the bear market with profit enthusiasm: BYD, VW, Nikola, and Power Nickel

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • AI
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

The major stock markets reached new highs for the year last week. With interest rates continuing to rise, inflation still on the rise and recessionary tendencies, many market participants are wondering if the bull market will pause for a while. Because what has failed to materialize so far is a significant consolidation, which would be necessary to finally let off some steam and prevent losses of 20 to 50% within 6 weeks, as seen in 2000, 2008, 2011, 2015 and 2022. The respective starting points in those years were the volatile late summer months of August and September. Stocks such as Nividia, C3.ai and Palantir recently gained as much as 250% and have been buoyed by the AI wave. But how far can this trend go? Looking at the battery market, BYD, Nikola, and Power Nickel could be the next profit generators.

Is the electric motor stuttering at Volkswagen? Recent reports indicate that it is. Prices for the ID.3 have been massively reduced in China, and most recently, Handelsblatt reported on sales problems for the Wolfsburg-based company's electric models in Europe. In the hydrogen sector, however, the mood has improved considerably. BloombergNEF predicts significant economies of scale for the industry, and the successful IPO of ThyssenKrupp Nucera illustrates investor interest. Pure-play Plug Power and newcomer dynaCERT can also benefit from this. dynaCERT is convincing with a positive newsflow, and one customer believes in a revolution. Analysts see 30% share price potential for Plug Power.
