The fight against climate change is an ideological issue in many places. That is why there are bitter opponents of the measures. But clean energy should be in everyone's interest - at least if it is profitable to produce. Many people rightly have reservations about pushing technology onto the market solely based on subsidies. History has shown that this creates the wrong incentives and even restricts the development of technology that could become established in the long term.

JinkoSolar: How investors can act now

A good example of misguided subsidies around renewable energy is the German solar boom more than ten years ago. At the time, companies like SolarWorld and Q-Cells were making a splash, and thanks to government-guaranteed minimum prices, many people were plastering low-efficiency solar panels on their roofs. But then the Chinese came along and were cheaper and, after a while, better. The result: many German solar pioneers slid into insolvency. Today, solar cells are preferably built in Asia, such as by JinkoSolar. The development of the government measures in Germany: There is practically no German solar industry. Nothing but expenses.

However, today's solar giants benefited Indirectly: German technology advanced the industry, and the Chinese were also inspired by it. But those days are over. Only recently, JinkoSolar received awards for the effectiveness and durability of its solar cells. At the same time, the Company is competitive and has made it to market leader. The share recently lost 13% in just five trading days, but it also rose sharply before that. In German trading, it will be necessary for the share to sustainably overcome the EUR 38.20 mark. Then the value should get back into better waters. However, those who believe in the technology can already use the current level for cautious position building.

Defense Metals: Rare earths in Canada

To cautiously get a foot in the door, the shares of Defense Metals could also be an option at the given time. The Company operates the Wicheeda rare earths project, an exciting deposit centered around critical metals in Canada. The Company reports that the project contains 4.9 million tons of rock with an average grade of 3.02% light rare earth metals. In addition, there are inferred resources of 12.1 million t. at an average grade of 2.9%. Most recently, Defense Metals raised CAD 5 million to advance further exploration.

The Company is looking to strike near-surface in particular and is targeting the drilling program accordingly. The Wicheeda Rare Earth project is integrated into existing infrastructure and could offer production costs below the industry average. Near-surface deposits would even reinforce these cost advantages. The stock has been good for rallies in the past. Due to the financing, the share price has settled at EUR 0.20. Due to the strategic importance of rare earths, whose market is largely controlled by China, the project in Canada is promising. In addition, there is the prospect of sustainable production, which is especially important to companies with ESG profiles. Defense Metals' stock has settled down a bit - which is precisely why investors can take a look at the value.

Gazprom: Top dog with risks

The Russian Company Gazprom also claims to have an ESG profile: On its website, Gazprom refers to CO2 saved. But if you look at independent ESG ratings, Gazprom's risk is high. How should investors deal with such information? In the short term, the relatively weak ESG rating should have no impact on the share price. In the long term, however, Gazprom could well fall behind. However, this is offset by the low production costs with which the Company shines. So there is potential to invest in more sustainability if necessary.

Gazprom is currently building the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and despite the political controversies surrounding the mega-project, Gazprom is well-positioned. If Europe does not want Russian gas, the Asians should already be standing and providing Gazprom with secure sales. The stock also shines with a dividend yield of more than 6%. Gazprom is a massive company with a good cost structure and existing growth. However, this is offset by political as well as ESG risks. The stock is also unlikely to stage another rally. However, the stock can be used as a solid dividend investment in case of weakness.

Which stock provides the yield kick?

Similar to JinkoSolar, Gazprom is also well-positioned and can be considered a market leader. Defense Metals is a different story. The Company is only developing its rare earth project. While the signals are already positive, any investment must be considered speculative. In return, the Company, which is currently valued at only EUR 13.5 million, can also more easily stage a brilliant price rally. Investors need to add stocks like Defense to their portfolio according to their personal risk profile. Then they can also play an important role in the portfolio - for example, as a yield kick in times of rising prices.

Alibaba, Memiontec, MorphoSys - Now the rally after the sell-off!

The regulator's pressure is getting bigger and bigger. China has tightened the thumbscrews on technology giants and especially their online education companies - triggering a stock market quake on its own stock market. In some cases, well-known tech stocks lost double digits, even though the affected areas only affect fractions of annual sales. Government regulation of the USD 100 billion-plus education market is likely to weaken confidence in China's stock markets for the long term. And the fact that China's trade relations with the US have also reached a low point does not make things any better. Are there still opportunities?

Barrick Gold, Mineworx, TUI: Summertime is investment time

Invest or consume? Given the difficult months many of us have had, it would be understandable to unwind now: sun, beach and sea beckon despite rising numbers. But it may also make sense to think more long-term in the face of rapid change. Central banks are allowing more inflation and the printing press continues to run fast. Especially in the current summer lethargy, this can be an opportunity for people with foresight.
