NEL ASA, NVIDIA, SolGold - copper, processors and hydrogen for the portfolio

  • Electromobility

The mobility of the future will be diverse. In addition to internal combustion engines, vehicles with electric motors will also define future everyday life. This politically motivated development will be supported by subsidies and premiums in various areas. Investors who would like to participate in this trend have the opportunity to buy the shares of companies that will be part of this development. Besides the well-known car manufacturers, suppliers and plant manufacturers will also benefit from this trend.

Electric mobility drives the copper market

An electric car needs on average three times as much copper as a vehicle with a combustion engine. This simple example makes it clear that this raw material will be in great demand in the future. Even though around 35% of the world's copper demand can now be covered by recycling, a large proportion is still needed for global electrification and there are many examples. The anode of a lithium-ion battery is usually made of copper and the cathode of aluminum. In total, such an energy storage device consists of about 18% copper.

Copper deposits for the market

Experts predict that the share of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles will rise to 19% by 2030 and could even grow to over 70% by 2040. Whether this estimate will prove to be true is uncertain, but the demand for copper will also increase due to other industries. Against this background, SolGold is an exciting investment opportunity as the company has already discovered 9.9 million tons of copper in Ecuador.

Precious metals as a bonus

In addition, SolGold has already reported 21.7 million ounces of gold and 92.2 million ounces of silver. From today's perspective, the mine life expectancy is projected to be 55 years, CEO Nick Mather stated in a recent interview. The market value of the company is currently less than CAD 900 million. Given that SolGold has a total of 13 projects and that the current market value of the precious metals is significantly higher, in a nutshell, investors have the opportunity to participate in a bank with an affiliated copper dealership.

Technologies in the race

A name that is often mentioned in connection with autonomous driving is NVIDIA. However, the market value of the processor specialist is now more than EUR 260 billion. In comparison, the plant manufacturer NEL ASA from Norway is still valued low at EUR 2.6 billion. The company plays an important role in building a hydrogen infrastructure. NEL's plants are used in the production of the energy carrier and are needed for the construction of a network of filling stations.

Imagination vs. values

At the end of the day, however, the investors themselves have to estimate how much future potential can still be exploited at these two billion-euro companies. In comparison, the chance/risk potential of the SolGold share is probably more attractive based on the values in the ground.

Daimler, Tesla, Volkswagen - will electric mobility end with Chancellor Merkel?

  • Electromobility

The South African Elon Musk is a smart entrepreneur and knows when to access the capital market in order to remain liquid. Due to his space activities he enjoys a kind of fool's licence in the USA and sometimes smokes a joint in front of a running camera. On Twitter he announced a fake takeover in order to heat up short sellers without having to fear imprisonment. Nevertheless, it remains exciting to see how Tesla will develop in the future. The electric car maker has divided the capital market and the development is now looking threatening, as the details and background show.

NEL, Nikola, Tesla - is Germany facing a new billion euro scandal?

  • Electromobility

The Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) is a renowned organization focusing on research, economic policy advice and analysis. It sees itself as the research institute for globalisation issues in Germany. The institute cooperates worldwide with universities, research institutions and think tanks. In short: the independent organisation is credible and its statement carries weight. One of the latest studies on the subject of e-cars has now brought clarity to light, as we have already reported, which cannot be in the interest of German politics and how the exposure of a scandal appears. Outsiders are asking the question; how can it be that tax money and subsidies are flowing to increase greenhouse gas emissions by 73%? One thing at a time.
