The Corona Crisis has hit traditional retailers especially hard. Social segregation, curfews, and other measures to control the virus's spread have made it difficult or even impossible to shop in stores or shopping malls. As a result, the majority of consumers have adjusted their online purchasing behavior. The trend to continue shopping online even after the pandemic will remain strengthened by better online offerings. The challenge for brands now is to increase their online visibility.

    Hard work pays off

    This advertising slogan belongs to the industry giant Nike. However, the team around the award-winning urban sportswear and accessories brand RYU Apparel has worked hard for success since the beginning of last year. By replacing the entire management team, several rounds of financing, and a clear strategy, the Canadians have a clear goal. By 2030, Cesare Fazari wants to build a billion-dollar company out of RYU Apparel.

    A great deal achieved

    The first "short financial year" for the new management of RYU Apparel was extremely successful. Over several financing rounds, almost USD 6 million was raised. These additional capital resources allow RYU to continue to assert itself as a global lifestyle and high-performance athletic apparel brand, with the registered trademark "Urban Athletic Apparel." In addition to developing new designs, building the wholesale division, and making significant investments in the online presence, the capital raised was put into targeted marketing and collaborations.

    Golf, skateboarding and Hollywood

    To raise awareness within Generation Z, RYU entered into a groundbreaking partnership as the official supplier of high-performance apparel and bags for Canada Skateboard at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. It also expanded its product line to include golf apparel. In addition to influencer marketing and expanding its social media channels, the "Respect Your Universe" Company additionally plans to make its presence known with product placement in Branded Entertainment's new television series "The Count."

    In 2021, CEO Fazari wants to continue full throttle. He is willing to leverage his more than 30 years of commercial retail experience to establish thousands of turnkey locations with key commercial franchises in North America, such as Shoppers Drug Mart, Marshalls, Trade Secrets and Public Mobile.

    Successful turnaround

    The times of distress for the award-winning fashion label RYU, "Respect Your Universe," seem to be over. The expansion and optimization of Internet activities, the establishment of wholesale in North America, and targeted collaborations put RYU Apparel in a position to take off in 2021.

    Currently, online sales contribute 80% of total sales. The Company reported that online revenues doubled in the third and fourth quarters compared to the same period the previous year. The goal of turning RYU Apparel into a billion-dollar company is still a long way off; however, the course is set for this to happen. Currently, the Canadians' share price is at CAD 0.16, and the stock market value amounts to EUR 18.59 million.

    Completely cleared

    The Chinese carmaker NIO cleared the maximum placement volume of USD 1.5 billion by issuing two convertible bonds. The completion of the issue of convertible bonds with a volume of USD 1.3 billion, plus a greenshoe option totaling USD 200 million, was announced yesterday. With the issuance of new shares, NIO, in which Internet giants Tencent and Baidu have stakes, last raised USD 3 billion in funding in December 2020.

    The market entry into Europe is planned for this year. So far, the Company has only been active in China. The Chinese recently presented the Company's first e-sedan, the ET7 model. It is the Company's fourth production vehicle and scheduled to hit the market in early 2022.

    Attention, turnaround! Lufthansa, TUI, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank: These stocks are taking off again!

    • Gold
    • Tourism
    • Investments

    From several perspectives, the ongoing crisis is a mammoth task for asset managers and private investors. First, after the long uptrend and the absolute boom valuation of growth stocks from 2015 to 2022, no one knows when a sufficiently high discount has been reached to re-enter. Some stocks, such as Plug Power, are very forward-looking and dependent on government contracts. Here there have already been sales valuations of a factor of 200. So is a P/S ratio of currently 12 after an almost 80% share price loss cheap or still hopelessly overpriced? We do not know because the ongoing war sets new market parameters daily. The major indices will therefore continue to search for a valuation basis in a very volatile manner. We pick out a few selected opportunities.

    Buy or sell? Nel, Zalando, Aspermont under analyst review

    • Hydrogen
    • Mining

    After the heavy losses of the past months, a countermovement seems to be starting at the moment. Whether this will turn into a real summer rally remains to be seen. Buy or sell is the question. Analysts see a price potential of over 50% for Nel ASA. Even though competition from China and India is increasing. Aspermont also appears attractive at the current price level. The latest quarterly figures were positive, and the positioning of the small-cap in the booming commodities sector is promising. At Zalando, analysts react to the profit warning, and the price targets are significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some advise buying the online fashion retailer, but not everyone.

    TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Lufthansa - The travel market is back - where are the share prices?

    • travel

    The travel market has changed dramatically since 2019 in light of the Corona pandemic. Due to the most extensive pandemic standstill in 2020, the capacities for flights, rail traffic and accommodation were adjusted downwards dramatically. Major cost reductions occurred primarily through de-occupancy and staff reductions. Travel companies cut their basic capacity utilization with partners to such an extent that many smaller operations had to pull out of the race, and large corporations could only survive with extensive state aid. Now, however, the situation has turned 180 degrees and demand for travel is exploding. However, this time it seems difficult to ramp up the reduced capacities in line with demand. We look at the opportunities of three typical industry players.
