Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, Freyr Battery - Different Outlooks

  • Electromobility
  • Battery
  • Renewable Energy

The continuous development of batteries plays a crucial role in the success and efficiency of renewable energy and electromobility. Batteries are a key element that can effectively store electricity from renewable energy sources and retrieve it when needed. Several companies have taken on the development of innovative systems. However, the results vary widely.

ThyssenKrupp, Power Nickel, Varta - Is nickel becoming scarce?

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

Nickel is a versatile metal that plays an important role in various industries. One of the largest applications of nickel is in stainless steel production, where it provides hardness, corrosion resistance and heat resistance. Nickel has also always been a crucial factor for batteries. Since the rise of electromobility, the metal has gained even more significance. Due to its ability to store high energy densities, it contributes to improving performance. Using it in the cathode achieves higher capacities and longer lifetimes, which is essential for electric cars. Given the growing trend towards electromobility, nickel is becoming an important raw material for the energy transition.

Caution with TUI and Varta! Smartbroker Holding with 85% price potential!

  • Investments
  • travel
  • renewableenergies
  • Batteries

At around EUR 6, the TUI share is trading at an all-time low. Is now the time to buy into the tourism group? One analyst warns against it and believes the share price could fall by a third. Caution is also advised with Varta. The former German battery hopeful is fighting for survival. Analysts halve the price target and recommend selling the share. And the shareholders' association SdK is also sounding the alarm. A total loss cannot be ruled out. Instead of catching a falling knife, focusing on shares in an upward trend, such as Smartbroker Holding, is worthwhile. The share is one of the current year's high flyers, and analysts believe further price increases of over 80% are possible. Thanks to the new app, EBITDA could increase more than tenfold.

Analysts euphoric - Varta, First Phosphate, Freyr Battery

  • Mining
  • phosphate
  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies

Battery technology has made significant progress in recent years. Companies are investing heavily in research and development to create batteries with a more extended range, faster charging time and longer life. However, with the growing interest in electric vehicles, the demand for raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel and phosphate is increasing enormously. The existing supply is already reaching its limits due to the high demand. Profiteers are the producers of the scarce goods.

Varta, Altech Advanced Materials, Volkswagen - The battle for the battery of the future

  • Batteries
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

The energy transition will not succeed without batteries, and electromobility cannot be implemented without them either. South Korea plans to invest USD 15 billion in the development of solid-state batteries for electric vehicles by 2030 in order to secure a long-term competitive advantage in the global market for electric vehicles. China is already the pioneer in electric cars and batteries for these vehicles. Experts in the American automotive industry fear a dependence on China for batteries and their raw materials. Since the automotive industry has embraced electromobility and the energy transition is being pushed forward faster, the field of battery development has become tremendously important. Therefore, today we will look at three companies dealing with this issue.

Attention in the battery sector: Varta in sellout, Mercedes, Power Nickel and IBU-tec with good prospects!

  • Electromobility

What a debacle for Varta! While many manufacturers worldwide are looking for clean battery solutions, things continue to go downhill for the company in Ellwangen. The linchpin of mobile electrification is the development of a super battery. The conventional battery market is dominated by the Chinese group CATL with a 38% share, followed by BYD. But there are also many smaller technology companies in Germany, such as Altech Advanced Materials and IBU-Tec, that are getting involved in the battery market. We go in search of sector highlights.

The goals of the climate protectionists are being delayed. With the Building Energy Act unlikely to arrive until 2025, the construction of the Tesla Gigafactory in Brandenburg will also be further delayed. Tesla has determined that the 300 hectares of factory space officially approved in 2022 is not quite enough. However, the latest planning for 400 hectares is meeting with resistance, especially from environmental groups. The municipalities are accused of planning chaos and failure to comply with environmental regulations. The climate-neutral future requires tremendous efforts because time is pressing. The stock market also seems to have run too far on many issues and urgently needs a break from its permanent upward trend. Pay attention to the following stocks.

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?

  • 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.
