Forget the heating law - 100% turnaround opportunity possible with Deutsche Bank, Volkswagen, BYD and Cardiol Therapeutics

  • Biotechnology
  • Banking
  • Electromobility

When the major indices perform, some stocks unfortunately fall by the wayside. This can be due to a lack of attractiveness or the impact of megatrends such as Artificial Intelligence or Digitalization. Deutsche Bank is well on track for 2023, Volkswagen's low valuation is bound to attract attention at some point, and biotech company Cardiol Therapeutics is poised for a big jump. We take a closer look.

Volkswagen, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Dependence on China

  • Rare Earth Elements
  • Electromobility
  • rheinmetall
  • volkswagen
  • defense

Without rare earths, the energy transition fails. There would be neither electric cars nor wind turbines without the critical raw material, which has long been on the list of critical metals in Europe and the USA. But these applications are only the tip of the iceberg because this metal is also needed in the defense industry, smartphones, MRIs and many other high-tech devices. China processes the mined rare earths and has a near monopoly. Now that demand is increasing due to the energy transition and the BRICS countries are slowly breaking away from the US, alternatives should be sought. Today, we look at three companies that cannot do without rare earths.

New record prices every day, but where is the perfect battery? Varta, First Phosphate, Volkswagen in focus

  • Commodities
  • Technology
  • Rare Earth Elements
  • Battery Metals
  • E-Mobility

Without the next evolutionary step in traction batteries, it will probably be a long time before e-mobility can replace the combustion engine market. Short service life, limited flexibility and high production and disposal costs stand in the way of an economic approach, even if the red-green government likes to downplay these facts. In the end, politics has also failed to provide electricity in an appropriately "sustainable" manner and at an affordable price. Therefore, anyone who wants to promote ecology through politics must ensure that electricity prices are halved, and all currently required fossil components are eliminated from the energy mix. Otherwise, the enlightened consumer may revert to purchasing fuel-efficient internal combustion engine vehicles, even if they eventually have to import them into the EU at some point. Where are the opportunities for dynamic investors?

Standard Lithium, Grid Metals, Volkswagen - Lithium is essential for electromobility

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility

Electric vehicle sales continue to outpace sales expectations, driving demand for lithium, nickel and other battery raw materials. At the same time, the supply of these raw materials faces challenges, including technical problems with new types of lithium deposits, permitting procedures and social issues. This situation could lead to a 5-6 year opportunity for sustained higher lithium prices. First-to-market projects can achieve significant market valuation, so companies are focused on rapid implementation and revenue generation. We, therefore, look at two lithium companies and examine how Volkswagen plans to address the challenges in procurement.

With strong acceleration, a connected cockpit and lots of rear-seat amenities - these are the features that score points for e-cars. However, investors are taking a closer look. An article in Handelsblatt reveals that some carmakers are not faring well in the favour of sustainably-minded investors. We look at why that is and why shareholders should consider it - an analysis of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) in the automotive industry.

IPO Price driver: ThyssenKrupp, Volkswagen, Desert Gold

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Electromobility
  • IPO

In an IPO, it is not only the newcomer to the stock market that is interesting for investors. A parent company often benefits - e.g. Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz - when the subsidiary becomes fully or partially independent. Shareholders of ThyssenKrupp are currently hoping for a share price driver. Thus, the IPO of the hydrogen subsidiary nucera. However, analysts are skeptical. Yet, an initial public offering can also pay off for the peer group when investors take a closer look at the industry again. Desert Gold could benefit from this. The neighbour of the gold explorer Allied Gold Corp wants to go public in London. Desert Gold should also benefit from this and help the share to break out. Within the VW Group, the Porsche share has outperformed its parent company since the IPO. Analysts warn: Will Tesla and BYD leave Volkswagen behind?

DAX on a record chase, and hydrogen is making a comeback! VW, Daimler Truck, First Hydrogen, Traton. Who can convince?

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Electromobility

The EU wants to invest about EUR 25 billion in hydrogen over the next 10 years. To this end, the Commission has drafted the concept of a "Hydrogen Accelerator" to promote the use of renewable hydrogen. The "REPowerEU plan" launched for this purpose aims to produce 10 million tons of renewable hydrogen within the EU by 2030 and to import a further 10 million tons. It is hoped that this will provide an important building block for saving the climate. The private sector is also involved. We take a look at some of the key players.
