Clean energy does not work without technology. The energy transition can only succeed if photovoltaic systems or even wind turbines are state-of-the-art. It is therefore essential that there are companies that lead the way technologically. This can be achieved with new products, daring plans, or in a classic way: by promoting suitable raw materials.

    JinkoSolar: Top dog does everything right

    JinkoSolar has long been known as a technological high-flyer. The Chinese score in terms of both durability and efficiency. We remember: Just over ten years ago, German companies were still considered pioneers in photovoltaic systems. But even then, the Chinese were cheaper and were gradually catching up technologically. Today, JinkoSolar is one of the hottest solar companies. Recently, the value came a little under the wheels because of the "China fear", but there is no reason in the long term to be deterred from investment. The central government in Beijing will not endanger the solar industry or harm it in the long run. That would quite simply not be rational and would not fit in with the lofty goals of the Chinese who want to move their country forward.

    While skeptics were still focusing on possible government repression for JinkoSolar, the Company announced a collaboration with Chinese battery company CATL. The partnership aims to combine photovoltaics with energy storage systems to an even greater extent in the future, thus advancing climate neutrality. With this cooperation, JinkoSolar is consolidating its market position and taking comprehensible steps. The share is not uninteresting, but the value is likely to encounter resistance soon - beyond the EUR 50 mark, the recovery threatens to falter.

    Silver Viper: Analysts see around 100% potential

    In contrast, the share of Silver Viper Minerals could soon overcome significant resistance. The share is currently trading just before the highs from March. Silver Viper is advancing the La Virginia project in Mexico and presented a detailed resource estimate in May. From this, it can be seen that the project has potential initially as an open pit and, later, as an underground mine. In total, the project is looking at 12.9 million ounces of silver in the inferred category and 6.9 million ounces in the indicated category.

    Silver Viper plans to expand the known El Ruby zone in the coming months and make new discoveries. Since management and professional investors hold more than 80% of the Company, the work can proceed quietly and steadily, as in previous years. Silver Viper's way of working also convinces analysts: The analyst firm Red Cloud Securities sees a price target at CAD 1.30, which corresponds to a doubling at the current level. Since silver is needed for solar cells and in electric cars and wind turbines, it could be worthwhile to look at Silver Viper.

    Plug Power: Hydrogen solutions from the USA

    The Plug Power share has made a name for itself in recent years with rather daring plans. The Company has set itself the goal of supplying fuel cells for electromobility. The US Company is also involved in decentralized energy supply and hydrogen filling stations. Since the January high of over EUR 60, the share has corrected sharply and runs sideways around EUR 20. Given the decision by the automotive industry not to focus on fuel cells, for the time being, the stock has run out of steam. Little of the once ambitious plans remain in terms of the share price.

    The energy transition continues to move forward. Innovative technology and ambitious market leaders who are constantly expanding their position are supporting the positive change. However, raw materials are needed to manufacture wind turbines, solar plants and electrolyzers. An exciting metal for this technology is silver. Those who want to accompany the energy turnaround on the stock exchange can do so indirectly with the Silver Viper share and thus invest beyond short-term hypes.

    After Gold and Silver: Nickel on the Move! Kinross Gold, Power Nickel, Royal Gold

    The geopolitical uncertainties with the escalation between Iran and Israel helped precious metals to further price surges. Despite being technically overbought, gold was able to hold its ground near the USD 2,400 per ounce mark, while silver closed the week with a further gain of around 3%. In the shadow of this, industrial metals are moving into the spotlight after a weak overall year in 2023. Alongside copper, nickel, an important raw material for many low-carbon technologies, has established a solid base in recent months.

    Barrick Gold, Globex Mining, BP - Commodities In the spotlight: Supercycle started?

    Global demand for commodities is reaching new heights, partly driven by increasing geopolitical tensions. The exchange of attacks between Iran and Israel is a case in point. This conflict, deeply rooted in religious and political differences, continues to escalate and could have far-reaching consequences for international stability and commodity markets. With this latest escalation of the Middle East conflict, security aspects in the global competition for important resources such as gold, silver and copper are taking center stage. China is demonstrating its hunger for resources. However, the price of oil has also risen recently. There has long been talk of a commodity supercycle. Perhaps it has now finally begun. Where should one invest now?

    Since the bombing of Israel by Iran, the clocks are ticking differently in the Middle East. The next stage of escalation has been reached. If Israel now uses the right to defense as an opportunity to initiate something bigger, it is here: the conflagration. Gold and silver are shining as safe-haven currencies and pulling long-neglected commodity shares through the roof. Now is the time to keep the sails in the wind and ride the long-awaited upward momentum. In the energy transition, strategically safer jurisdictions that can safely serve the growing hunger for commodities are still in demand. We highlight a few opportunities.
