JinkoSolar, Memiontec, Encavis - How to profit from the Federal election

  • Investments
Photo credits:

Since the Federal election on September 26, it seems clear that the Greens will be in the government. Whether a traffic light or Jamaican coalition, without the Greens, only the GroKo remains, and that is as good as impossible with the CDU as a junior partner. Annalena Baerbock has already made it clear that her party wants to push through demands regarding sustainability. Germany will therefore have to increase its efforts once again. Renewable energies will continue to be promoted, while CO2 emissions will be penalized. This approach can be observed almost everywhere in the world. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies that are committed to sustainability.

    JinkoSolar - IPO of the subsidiary holds potential

    JinkoSolar is known to be one of the largest photovoltaic suppliers worldwide. While Germany was considered a pioneer in solar energy for a long time, Chinese companies are now leading the way. Solar power is an essential element in the energy transition, as there are plenty of spots on earth where the sun shines almost all day. So the prospects for the future are excellent. Nevertheless, JinkoSolar is also suffering from margin pressure in the industry.

    The last quarterly figures surprised analysts positively. Expectations were exceeded, only the outlook looked a little worse, as the gross margin in the third quarter could fall from around 17% to 12%. The high raw material prices and also the chip crisis play a role here. Nevertheless, the Company is investing USD 500 million in Vietnam to build another production facility with up to 7 gigawatts.

    The rumors about an IPO of the subsidiary Jiangxi Jinko seem to be confirmed. The filing was made back in June, and the subsidiary has already provided estimates for the first nine months of the year. Sales are around USD 3.6 billion and profits are expected to be about USD 99 million. Most recently, the subsidiary was valued at a market value of USD 1.7 billion, while the parent JinkoSolar is currently valued at just USD 2.1 billion. An IPO would significantly increase the value of JinkoSolar. Currently, the share is at USD 41.85. Above USD 44.26, the chart picture is slowly clearing up.

    Memiontec - Water is valuable

    Memiontec is currently mainly active in Singapore, Indonesia and China. The Company is a specialist for water solutions of all kinds and has been active in the market for almost three decades. A milestone was reached in 2016 when the first BOOT and TOOT projects were landed. These contracts run for up to 25 years and guarantee recurring revenues. In addition to these projects, which are mainly concluded with municipalities, the Company has well-known customers such as Nike, Singapore Airlines, Danone Aqua, Pepsico, and Micron.

    On August 30, the Company won two tenders in Singapore with a total volume of SGD 12.7 million. Part of the contract was awarded by the Public Utilities Board, which had already awarded a SGD 21.7 million contract to Memiontec in April. So customers are very happy with their partner. The order book thus climbs to SGD 91.6 million. The management expects some large tenders for various water treatment plants and waterworks in the coming years.

    Memiontec can cover the complete value chain of the water industry and already has all necessary licenses to participate in these tenders. Due to the first successful projects and the resulting contacts, the Company can look forward to the tenders with confidence. The share price has more than doubled since the beginning of August. As an interested investor, one should wait for a setback to enter. The Company is even already paying a dividend.

    Encavis - Launches new fund

    The German Encavis could benefit directly from the government participation of the Greens because, as already mentioned, investments in renewable energies will then be ramped up. Since Germany, unlike other industrialized countries, cannot rely on nuclear power to reduce CO2 emissions, the only option is to invest in wind and solar power. Here Encavis is very well positioned. 75% of the electricity generated comes from solar energy, and 25% is wind power.

    Last Monday, it was announced that Encavis Asset Management, a wholly-owned subsidiary, has acquired 5 wind farms in France, all of whose wind turbines are equipped with new modern turbines, giving them a capacity of 74.5 megawatts. The special fund EIF II provided financing for the transaction, which was launched together with BayernLB and provided with EUR 480 million in capital in December last year. This fund is aimed exclusively at credit institutions. Due to the zero interest rate policy, demand was huge. Now the next fund is being launched, as the Company announced on September 29. This time, EUR 500 million is to be raised. The fund promises an average 5% annual payout.

    Management has reiterated annual targets of EUR 320 million in sales and EUR 240 million in adjusted operating profit. Shareholders currently receive a dividend yield of around 1.8%, although it should be noted that the company has steadily increased the dividend in recent years. The stock has been running sideways in a EUR 3 range since early June. Some time ago, corporate bodies bought shares at about this level. This is usually a good sign.

    All companies are ultimately working toward greater sustainability. JinkoSolar is providing customers with the appropriate solar systems. Memiontec is trying to reduce water waste as much as possible and give the people access to drinking water. Encavis supplies its customers with green electricity. Should the Greens become part of the government, this is likely to be the area with the most potential.

    Furious debt mania, a thorough portfolio check is necessary! Allianz, Blackrock Silver, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank in focus!

    From one high to the next - it is not just equities that are booming in Europe, the US and China; it is mainly debt. First Corona, then Ukraine, now Israel - there is no end to the flood of borrowing. Armaments are now being financed on credit, while the accompanying recession is draining the coffers. Real estate is becoming a hot topic: New builds are hardly affordable for families, and old buildings are swallowing up thousands of euros in green-tinted renovation costs. The Federal Constitutional Court has now put a retroactive stop to the creative spending culture in Berlin, and a new budget plan is necessary. Keeping a clear head as an investor in this environment is challenging. We look at the opportunities in the financial sector, but perhaps precious metals will also be the anchor that saves the day.

    Business against climate change is booming - Allianz SE, Klimat X, Nio

    Climate change is increasingly threatening our lives, with few areas worldwide considered safe. Sea levels are rising, and polar ice is melting. Many regions are experiencing severe storms and increased rainfall, while others face growing risks of heatwaves and droughts. Since the Paris Climate Agreement at the latest, countries have been stepping up their efforts to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This has created a market that experts predict will increase eightfold by the end of the decade.

    Deutsche Bank, Globex Mining, Barrick Gold - Enthusiasm for gold is back

    Despite several interest rate hikes, the price of gold has recently risen to over USD 2,000 again. Even though the latest increase coincided with the attack on Israel, this is unlikely to be the reason for it. Instead, the high demand from central banks is responsible for the steady gold price. Within the first 9 months, the central banks bought a whopping 800 tons of gold. That is a new record. The geopolitical tensions could also turn more and more private individuals into so-called gold bugs, who are making provisions for crises and assuming that gold will continue to rise in the long term. As the Fed has paused interest rates, this could give the gold price a further boost.
