Nordex, PuriflOH, JinkoSolar: Investing in a better world
To make the world a better place. That is the concern of all entrepreneurs - although one can no doubt argue about innovations in detail. There is no doubt about renewable energy and clean water. Every innovation in these areas pays off not only monetarily but in a variety of ways. We profile three stocks that are doing good.
time to read:
ISIN: NORDEX SE O.N. | DE000A0D6554 , PURIFLOH LTD | AU0000010548 , JINKOSOLAR ADR/4 DL-00002 | US47759T1007
Nordex is slowly gaining momentum
One of the classic German second-line stocks is Nordex. The wind turbine manufacturer has had an eventful time. The Company has now joined the MDAX and boasts a high order backlog. The trend towards renewable energies is having a positive impact on Nordex. However, a comparatively new industry is often also characterized by significant competition. Nordex is currently not very profitable. At the end of 2020, the EBITDA margin fell to 2% but is expected to be significantly higher in 2021. Specifically, this is due to old projects coming to an end and new projects that are more profitable. Nordex has, therefore, already set the course for a promising future.
Nordex's stock has taken a beating over the past three months, losing around 12.5%. In the long term, too, the stock is in a sideways trend with a slight downward tendency. Only prices above the EUR 20 mark could turn the tide and make the share look more attractive again. However, as things are progressing operationally and Nordex is in line with the spirit of the times, such a liberation blow cannot be ruled out.
PuriflOH: Clean water and clean air - this trend is at the beginning
When we think of a livable future, clean water has a significant role to play. Already, researchers are predicting wars over clean water around the world. In addition to purifying water, the Australian Company PuriflOH also specializes in keeping the air and surfaces clean. Especially in the wake of the pandemic and the greater awareness of health that comes with it, PuriflOH could offer great opportunities. The Company has patented solutions for cleaning the air. Possible targets include public buildings, offices and schools.
Since PuriflOH is not a newcomer to the pandemic but has invested in its technology for years, now could be the time to take credit. The technology features low energy consumption, longevity and high fault tolerance. At the same time, it is suitable for filtering various biological and chemical contaminants from the air. PuriflOH is in the process of rolling out its technology on a large scale and is talking to potential partners. The Company currently costs only about EUR 30 million. If PuriflOH succeeds in putting its horsepower on the road and scoring points in the market, it could become a major growth story.
JinkoSolar: The sun shines even after the China crash
JinkoSolar's stock is also undoubtedly a growth story. The manufacturer of photovoltaic systems has turned the global market around in recent years and now has a significant market share. In terms of longevity and efficiency, JinkoSolar's modules are also the best in the world. But the stock has been staggering for some time. Why? The Evergrande scandal has since been added to the initially somewhat vague China fears.
According to skeptics, a downturn in the Chinese real estate market could affect the entire economy. In addition, solar systems are primarily mounted on rooftops. If few buildings are built, that could be negative for JinkoSolar's business. Still, there are arguments that the recent sell-off was overdone. JinkoSolar has a good market position and is cheaper today than it was six months ago. The stock is, without a doubt, one of the best sustainable stocks in the world. In the short term, however, it may remain turbulent given the situation in China.
Nordex has bottomed out, and JinkoSolar is currently available at a risk discount - for investors looking to invest in green stocks, conditions are not that bad. But both Nordex and JinkoSolar are established players in their field - there are usually no big surprises. Those who focus on growth and know how to deal with such stocks should also look at PuriflOH. The technology around the purification of water, air and surfaces is promising. The Company is at the very beginning.
