Mercedes-Benz, Canadian North Resources, Varta - Shortage of battery resources

  • Mining
  • Metals
  • Commodities
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

Electromobility and the energy transition are essential to creating a more sustainable future. However, we need raw materials such as copper, nickel, cobalt and lithium to achieve these goals. These resources are an obstacle for many companies. Therefore, car companies are trying to secure access to these scarce resources to secure supplies for their production. In some cases, they are even developing their own batteries. The best example is Volkswagen, which wants to build 6 battery factories in Europe. So today, we look at Mercedes-Benz, analyze a possible supplier with Canadian North Resources and conclude with Varta, Germany's largest battery manufacturer.

Nuclear off, secure energy now! Altech Advanced Materials, Varta and BYD - Up 700 % and no end in sight?

  • Technology
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

The nuclear reactors are now off! As though there was enough energy far and wide, the Berlin government ensemble decided to phase out nuclear energy. The reaction of the electricity suppliers followed immediately. On Monday, April 17, E.ON raised its electricity prices by 43%. Meanwhile, the coalition government cannot be deterred from suggesting to citizens that electricity prices will decrease in the long term. It will now be difficult for private households to behave in a climate-friendly way and still be able to consume. There are plenty of solutions for battery storage, but what is affordable and reliable? We take a look at an industry with a future.

  • Nickel
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

The first-quarter earnings season is currently at its peak. In addition to RWE, which doubled its quarterly profit, Deutsche Bank also reported further growth in profit. Surprisingly strong results were also reported from the second tier. As a result, there are interesting opportunities to enter the market, especially for stocks still lagging behind.

The batteries of the future: Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, Volkswagen

  • Electromobility
  • Batteries
  • Technology

Affordable e-cars that offer all the comforts and safety - even though many car industry commercials already sound like this, the reality is quite different. E-cars are still expensive, and the charging process forces travellers to take a mandatory break that is more or less relaxing, depending on their schedule. But technology is advancing. Batteries will soon be able to do much more than they do today. We introduce three companies that want to drive innovation.

Tesla, BYD and Volkswagen are all looking for the perfect battery. First Phosphate, BASF and Varta in focus

  • Mining
  • phosphate
  • renewableenergies
  • Batteries

The battery is becoming the linchpin of e-mobility. As the batteries age, their performance diminishes, which will soon affect this technology's first buyers. Although there are fewer wearing parts on an electric vehicle than on a conventional combustion engine, the battery is one of the most expensive components. Therefore, its replacement is anything but cheap. Meanwhile, big manufacturers like Tesla, BYD and VW are working on the ultimate battery with increased power and range. Volkswagen is investing EUR 10 billion in a new gigafactory near Valencia. The sector is betting on the new mobility, and the industry is adapting accordingly. Which shares have their noses in the wind?

BYD overtakes Volkswagen! Do Manuka Resources and Varta benefit from battery demand?

  • Mining
  • Vanadium
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

Changing of the guard in the world's largest car market: for the first time since the 1980s, the Volkswagen brand is no longer number 1 in China. BYD sold more vehicles in the Middle Kingdom than VW in the first quarter. And while BYD sold only electric models, the German manufacturer also sold combustion engines. If the world's largest car market is to be a blueprint for Europe and the USA, Volkswagen, BMW & Co. are in for hard times. But the latest sales figures also show that demand for batteries is not going to collapse any time soon, as one or two experts predicted for this year. Those who want to bet on the raw materials for batteries should look at Manuka Resources. The Australians also have a second hot iron in the fire with gold projects. And what is the German battery pioneer Varta doing? Next week should be exciting.

Significant upside potential - Varta, Manuka Resources, BASF

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Vanadium
  • renewableenergies

Undeterred by the geopolitical and economic uncertainties, the world's stock markets have so far only known the way up. The German DAX index even reached a new high for the year of 15,832 points. The precious metal gold and Bitcoin also reached new highs for the year. Despite the ongoing rally in the financial markets, there are still attractive entry opportunities in lagging stocks.

Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, BYD - Which Greentech stocks are poised for a boom?

  • Batteries
  • Electromobility
  • GreenTech

Greentech focuses on technologies and solutions that protect the environment and are sustainable. Since the car industry wants to focus on electric mobility in the future, a race for the best battery has begun. With new technologies, electricity storage systems can be built to store surplus renewable energy instead of letting it go to waste. Electric vehicles have gained popularity through continuous development as they can be used to get around with zero emissions. Growth opportunities are plentiful in this segment. We, therefore, take a look at three companies in the sector.

Watch out for these Greentech and battery stocks: Varta, Manuka Resources and BASF in turnaround

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • GreenTech
  • Batteries

Tesla is currently considering building its own battery factory in the US. The Company wants to operate the plant itself, and the battery giant CATL is to contribute the latest technology. For Tesla, the Texas location would be a welcome addition to its assembly plant for electric vehicles. After the decision to phase out internal combustion vehicles in the EU from 2035, international pressure remains high to finally initiate climate change. E-mobility is seen as a pathfinder. Innovations are needed in the battery sector because the performance parameters are not yet convincing. However, there are many profitable conspicuous features for shareholders in the round trip through the industry.

Nel ASA and Varta continue to decline: dynaCERT convinces analysts during an on-site visit

  • Hydrogen
  • GreenTech
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

Being active in a market of the future is no guarantee for success. Shareholders of Varta had to painfully realize this in recent months. The German battery group has indeed reached an agreement with banks on restructuring. However, there can be no talk of a liberating blow. According to analysts, the share could continue to slide. Experts are also somewhat cautious about Nel ASA. The hydrogen specialist's chart does not look rosy either. In contrast, dynaCERT could be due for a revaluation in the current year. Experts believe the Greentech company has set the course for a commercial breakthrough in 2023.
