Shares ready for takeoff: Nel, Plug Power, BASF, Almonty Industries

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Hydrogen

The New Year rally is on! The Nel share has gained around 20% since New Year's Eve. There was a tailwind from Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck, including a major order from Germany. Analysts see further upside potential. This also applies to BASF. A US analyst sees an opportunity for a good 30% price gain for the chemical giant. BASF should benefit from the current sharp decline in gas prices. The agricultural boom is also playing into the DAX company's hands. Almonty Industries wants to benefit even more from the boom in electric mobility in the future. To this end, the Group intends to become one of the leading tungsten producers. The mega-mine in South Korea is scheduled to go into operation in the current year, 2023. Financing by the German KfW has been secured, and analysts see a share price potential of over 100%.

An explosive start to 2023 for GreenTech and battery shares - BASF, Manuka Resources, Freyr and Varta in turnaround

  • Mining
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • GreenTech

In 2023, international pressure to initiate the climate turnaround remains. One potential path is seen in e-mobility. Despite the enormous development efforts of the last 5 years, no battery solution has yet been launched that could match the performance characteristics of a last-generation diesel powertrain. Key characteristics here are cost and sustainability in manufacturing, range, lifetime and safety. Nevertheless, progress is being made in the chemical mix of battery components, and some companies are making a name for themselves here. We analyze the current status.

The big energy question in 2023: BYD, Altech Advanced Materials, Varta, BASF - Is the thread breaking?

  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

Although the year 2023 starts with rising share prices, Central Europe is entering a difficult period. The start of the New Year brings a new situation for German consumers of refined products, as the purchase of crude oil via the Druzhba pipeline has now been stopped. Germany is thus implementing the oil embargo against Russia decided in the EU and losing a vital supply of oil overnight. As a result, the East German refinery in Schwedt reduced its throughput to 55% and is looking around for other suppliers. Whether this will work out in the short term is more than questionable. If the gas storage facilities are empty at the end of the relatively warm winter, the energy question will arise again. We now realize how fatally energy dependence on Russia has grown over the past decades. How tangible are alternative energies and the high-performance energy storage facilities they require?

Tocvan Ventures, BASF, BYD - These companies are set to scale up

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Gas
  • Telecoms

Gold is a key ingredient in the telecom industry. If Apple scales up its iPhone and iPad production in India with partner BYD, the demand for gold will increase immensely. Canadian explorer Tocvan Ventures specializes in exploring and mining gold sites in Mexico. After successfully exploring the area in the "Pilar Project", the Company is going to the next round. Analysis of the percentage of gold in the current drilling is pending. Things could also be looking up again for BASF. Subsidiary Wintershall Dea has discovered a hot commodity in the Norwegian Sea.

200% possible at ThyssenKrupp and Tocvan Ventures, and question marks at VW and BASF

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Electromobility
  • Energy

As we approach the end of the year, it is difficult to separate the real economic opportunities from the current war and crisis scenarios. The forecasting institutes are also poking around in the fog with their statements for 2023, with a still conciliatory economic development at the zero line being defined subject to falling interest rates and declining inflation. Under the sword of Damocles of a possible gas crisis starting in March, however, all predictions turn negative because Germany as an industrial location is already struggling considerably with the energy and electricity price increases. So how do you select a top performer for the portfolio?

Excitement at BASF, Nel ASA, Meta Materials: Shares for 2023

  • metamaterials
  • Innovations
  • Digitization

After a difficult 2022, investors are looking ahead to the coming year. In 2023, it will be important to pick the right stocks again because there will be winners - despite the war in Ukraine, high inflation and rising interest rates. At the same time, the price rockets of the old year are rarely also those of the new year. As is well known, BASF shares have struggled in 2022. If energy prices continue to ease, the high dividend yield, among other things, will entice investors. Also, there is news in the electromobility megamarket. There is no question that hydrogen offers huge opportunities worldwide. But companies like Nel and Plug Power must finally wake up faster and reduce losses. At Nel ASA, a sell recommendation weighed on the share price at the end of the year. Hot stock Meta Materials has already multiplied sales in the first 3 quarters of 2022, and the chances are good that the positive trend will continue in 2023. Then the Meta Materials share should also take off.

Christmas hype alert: BASF, Meta Materials, Varta, Nordex - Strong start to 2023 with GreenTech!

  • Technology
  • Investments
  • metamaterials

Fossil energy supply is becoming more and more expensive. The political end of the supplier and raw material giant Russia creates a dangerous undersupply, especially for Central Europe. The current winter, but especially the next one, could pose problems, and the industry will probably have to calculate significantly higher input costs in the medium term. Products are becoming considerably more expensive to produce, so selling prices on the shelves are also increasing. The inflationary spiral will thus continue to spiral upward, and consumers' purchasing power will decline. GreenTech solutions are more in demand than ever for the purchase of low-cost energy. So which stocks to watch out for?

BASF, BioNTech, Cardiol Therapeutics: Stocks for 2023?

  • Biotechnology
  • chemicals
  • Investments

Is there a 400% upside potential in 2023? At the end of a challenging 2022 stock market year, we are looking ahead to the new year. Which share is worth buying, and which is better left alone? In the case of BASF, the high dividend yield is one of the attractions. The latest company news shows that the chemical group is also involved in the mega market of electromobility. But the dependence on gas supplies is causing uncertainty, and an analyst has renewed a sell recommendation for BASF shares. BioNTech, on the other hand, is looking good, even if the chart picture has recently clouded over. The development pipeline is full, capacities - especially in Asia - are being expanded, and analysts are also more courageous again. Investors also need a little courage and, above all, patience with Cardiol Therapeutics. They could soon be rewarded. The cash position of the biotech pearl is almost equal to the market capitalization, the main product is already in the Phase 2 pilot study, and analysts see massive upside potential.

Nvidia, Meta Materials, BASF - High-tech stocks in focus

  • metamaterials
  • chemicals
  • hightech

Interest rate hikes this year put pressure on the share price of many high-tech stocks. The NASDAQ has lost over 27% in the last year. It has hit second-tier stocks in particular, but big players such as Amazon, Facebook and Google have also lost ground. On December 13, the US inflation figures were lower than expected at 7.1%. Today, Wednesday, the next interest rate decision by the FED is due. Both news could lead the way for the coming weeks, as the NASDAQ has been bottoming out since October.

100% is possible: BYD, Varta, Power Nickel, BASF: E-mobility stocks for 2023!

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • Electromobility

With advanced stock market corrections, rising inflation and disrupted supply chains, many market participants wonder if 100% is possible in 2023. It is! Because there are currently many challenges to solving the climate and energy crisis. More than ever, revolutionary ideas with vision are in demand. The pressure to innovate could not be higher in the area of batteries for e-mobility because the issues of range, service life and recycling have not yet been satisfactorily resolved for consumers. Some representatives of the industry have already recognized the signs of the times.
