The accounting crisis at the hydrogen industry leader, Plug Power, unsettled investors and forced the entire sector to correct. With the presentation of the corrected annual financial statements in mid-May, this already seems to be water under the bridge. Many stocks quickly began to rally again, as if nothing had happened. But how long can this continue? Are we already seeing the first signs of overheating? It is now essential to focus on companies that produce a steady and sustainable positive news flow.Read

The copper shortage continues as demand is continuously increasing. The current slightly weakening copper price should not hide the general state of the market. Resources are scarce, procurement markets are depleted, and demand remains at a high level. Current trends in the economy are further exacerbating this situation. Modern electric vehicles use about three to four times as much copper as a conventional internal combustion vehicle. It should not be forgotten that the construction of the charging infrastructure also requires significant amounts of copper. New mines are not currently in sight, but there is news from Nevada.Read

Inflation is here. In May, prices in Germany rose by 2.5% over the year as a whole, according to initial calculations by the Federal Statistical Office. Driven by reduced capacities and consumers' saved purchasing power, experts expect price increases between 4 and 5% by the end of the year. Such levels last occurred at the end of 1992. Interest rates, which are kept close to zero by central banks, still act as an accelerant. Hedge your portfolio before it is too late.Read

The pandemic issue is slowly fading into the background on the news pages. The energy transition is currently on everyone's lips again. Of course, the election campaign is beginning. The German Green Party positions itself and is calling for a complete switch to alternative energies. On its homepage, you can read the sentence: "We have a plan for the energy world of the future!" However, whether this plan has been thought through to the last point can be more than doubted. Phasing out climate-damaging coal and switching to completely alternative energies requires raw materials whose import is in no way guaranteed for the next few years due to scarcity.Read

Surveys show that the majority of Germans believe the energy turnaround is necessary. Climate change is manifesting itself in increasingly extreme weather conditions: exceptional cold, extreme heat spells, massive flooding and ever more pronounced droughts are causing hardship for people around the world. Most experts agree that further aggravation of the problem can only be mitigated by limiting CO2 emissions. The companies that stand to benefit massively from this are those that provide the resources needed to do so. Below are three candidates with the 'through-the-roof' potential.Read

In 2010, the first hype about rare earths occurred. Even then, it was apparent that digital technology would not be able to do without rare earths. As a result, shares of mining companies increased in price by up to 1,000%.
Currently, there is a lot of talk about e-mobility causing raw material resources to become scarcer. However, the talk is mainly about copper, nickel, lithium and perhaps silver. Rare earths are mostly forgotten, although they are used in many electronic devices, fighter jets and wind turbines.
China controls 80% of the world market and, according to media reports, is considering restricting exports of rare earths. Doing so could have a significant impact on all industries that require rare earths.

Siemens Energy, Enapter, ThyssenKrupp - hydrogen or battery? It doesn't matter! Why these companies will profit in any case!
The strong fluctuations in the price of hydrogen shares are evidence of the current war of faith surrounding our planet's most common element, which is also the simplest in structure: one proton, one electron. Perfection can be so beautifully simple. And yet, it has the potential to change our society from the ground up - the sun shows us how. Admittedly, we are still at the beginning of this development. In the short term, the focus of the capital market is more on the element's practical applications. In this context, many investors are looking at the topic of mobility. What will prevail? Batteries? Hydrogen? One possible answer was recently given by the VW commercial vehicle holding Company Traton SE: a Solomonic "both." Batteries for long-distance traffic, hydrogen for buses, which cannot be recharged for long periods in between. But hydrogen is also of great importance for many other areas of application. That is why the worldwide demand for hydrogen as an energy carrier will increase massively in the next few years in any case. Aurora Energy Research foresees an eightfold increase in hydrogen demand to 2,500 TWh per year by 2050. This estimate corresponds to annual sales of more than EUR 120 billion. The following companies are likely to benefit from the boom quite independently of the development of electromobility.Read
