NIO, Rock Tech Lithium, Volkswagen: Forget hydrogen!

  • Lithium

The pandemic shows it: humans are social creatures who long for their loved ones and want to experience something in good company. Mobility is the key to this. In the face of climate change and air pollution, electric cars are an obvious solution. But if you look at the stock market, you might think that hydrogen has now overtaken e-mobility. But that is by no means the case. Hydrogen still struggles with lower efficiency and is probably primarily suitable for large energy storage systems or ships. For passenger cars, the advantages of classic electric vehicles with batteries currently outweigh the disadvantages.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - state-subsidized share gains

  • Investments

The German energy transition and the change in mobility can be summarized in one sentence: maximum effort for minimum success. While the impact of the German population on global environmental responsibilities is marginal, the financial burden is enormous. The introduction of battery cars has already failed and is now only getting off the ground thanks to unprecedentedly high premiums on a new purchase. The original selling point that battery cars are better for the environment has failed miserably. The federal government is now engaging in damage control and appealing to subsidy hunters. On top of that, the acquisition is now sweetened with a state-subsidized charging station. Speculators are rubbing their hands.

BMW, BYD, Daimler, Tesla, Volkswagen: Battery cars threaten a forced shutdown

  • Electromobility

Electric mobility is one of the hottest topics of our time. Politicians have prioritized the change in road traffic in connection with climate change. Ever stricter emission limits are intended to encourage manufacturers and users to buy battery and hybrid cars. Because driving from A to B with modern combustion engines is also more environmentally friendly than 10 or 20 years ago, there was a lack of interest among users for a change. The federal government is now using taxpayers' money to promote the sale of this technology. This measure is controversial among experts because environmental protection is being neglected, and the national security of supply is now under threat, according to the energy supplier.

BYD, Defense Metals, VW - the next boom after hydrogen!

  • Rare Earth Elements

Tesla wants to break the sound barrier of one million vehicles with delivery in 2021. The biggest competitor from China, BYD, has at least as ambitious goals and is rushing from record to record with its new model, Han. Even German car manufacturers like VW have awoken from their deep sleep and now find electric cars sexy. The production of rechargeable batteries is increasing rapidly, but so is the demand for the necessary materials. Surpluses in demand, supply bottlenecks, and exploding prices are threatening.

VW, Rock Tech Lithium, Defense Metals, Tesla - scarcity causes price explosion!

  • Rare Earth Elements

The growth market of electric mobility will continue to pick up speed in the coming years. According to a study, the forecast number of new registrations of electric cars and plug-in hybrids will be 10.3 million cars in 2020, triple by 2025, and rise to almost 55 million units by 2030. The winners of this trend are primarily car manufacturers such as Tesla, VW, and BMW. There are highly exciting companies in the ranks of suppliers and producers that are profiting exponentially from the boom trends - both in terms of corporate profits and share price performance.

Daimler, Tesla, Volkswagen - will electric mobility end with Chancellor Merkel?

  • Electromobility

The South African Elon Musk is a smart entrepreneur and knows when to access the capital market in order to remain liquid. Due to his space activities he enjoys a kind of fool's licence in the USA and sometimes smokes a joint in front of a running camera. On Twitter he announced a fake takeover in order to heat up short sellers without having to fear imprisonment. Nevertheless, it remains exciting to see how Tesla will develop in the future. The electric car maker has divided the capital market and the development is now looking threatening, as the details and background show.

BMW, Daimler, Tesla, Volkswagen - Study proves big miscalculation for e-cars

  • E-cars

The renowned Kiel-based Institute for the World Economy (IfW) has published a study that is quite something. "Nowadays, electric cars run de facto on 100% coal-fired power," says IfW researcher Prof. Dr. Dr. Ulrich Schmidt, head of the Department of Social and Behavioral Economics Approaches to Solving Global Problems. "This is because the share of renewable energy in their electricity consumption is not available to displace fossil fuels elsewhere, and the increased demand for electricity requires the additional use of fossil fuels". Electric cars, which run on 100% carbon electricity and cause emissions of about 300 grams of CO2 per kilometer, whereas modern diesel vehicles emit only about 173 CO2 according to an ADAC study, cause considerable damage to the environment through the additional emission of greenhouse gases.

BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and dynaCERT - the cleanest diesel ever

  • Mobility

In a recent vehicle test, experts examined the BMW 520d, Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 and VW Golf 2.0 TDI models in city traffic, on country roads and autobahns. The magazine 'Auto, Motor und Sport' and the British testing specialist Emissions Analytics have tested the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx) in road traffic under real conditions and the results are surprisingly good. The advantages of electric mobility are fading.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - Electromobility threatens setback

  • Mobility

The world stands still. Only a few vehicles are still rolling on the roads. Trucks supply the supermarkets with food and those who can, take their own car for shopping or for the way to work to avoid the risk of public transport becoming infected. However, most people currently spend most of their time at their home or home office, as it is now called. The exciting question these days is: when can the old normality finally start again? But there is also enormous uncertainty about the personal economic situation. Will your company or your employer manage to survive? The need to buy a new car in such a situation should be close to zero.

TESLA - does a short squeeze like once at Volkswagen threaten?

  • Short squeeze

In the language of traders, the covering of short position in a rapidly rising market with a scarce supply is called short squeeze. So-called short sellers have previously borrowed shares from banks or other investors and then sold them because they wanted to bet on falling prices. If the share subsequently falls, the deal works out successfully. However, if the share rises, losses can occur when the position is closed out again so that the borrowed shares can be returned.
