Nvidia, BrainChip Holdings, Palantir - To the moon

According to high-ranking managers of the largest chip manufacturers such as Intel and Nvidia, the end of the semiconductor crisis is not in sight before the end of 2022. Besides the increasing demand for consumer electronics, computers and accessories since the beginning of the Corona Crisis, the industry is also being hit by the strong growth in demand from the automotive industry, which is increasingly relying on electronics. Artificial intelligence, 5G and the Internet of Things will further fuel demand in the coming years.

BrainChip Holdings - Welcome to the revolution

As early as 1950, Alan Turing first posed the question of whether machines could think. Since then, tremendous progress has been made in the field of artificial intelligence. Today, artificial intelligence is transforming both society and business. AI enables productivity gains, can improve quality of life, and even help address global challenges such as climate change, resource scarcity, and health crises.

However, one of the biggest problems with today's AI systems is their high power consumption. Unlike general-purpose chips like the familiar CPUs that need to communicate regularly with the data center, wasting vast amounts of precious energy, Australian Company BrainChip Holdings developed Akida. This revolutionary event-based processor works in the same way as the human brain, meaning it processes so-called spikes instead of traditional computer data.

The Akida processor can learn independently and does most of its work on-chip rather than in the data center, significantly reducing Internet bandwidth and latency. As a result, Akida meets the requirements of modern edge devices and is expected to be used in autonomous driving, IoT devices, robotics, medical diagnostics and security. The pattern was developed in collaboration with SocioNext, a leading application-specific integrated circuit company. Manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor, the first generation was shipped last month. So it should be a matter of time before the big names in both the semiconductor and electrical industries take notice of the world first.

In 2019, chip giant Intel bought Israeli developer of programmable deep learning accelerators designed for the data center, Habana Labs, for USD 2 billion. Analysts at Pitt Street Research take this acquisition as a peer group comparison and therefore see a fair value of AUD 1.50, equivalent to EUR 0.94, for BrainChip Holdings' stock. The current share price in Frankfurt is EUR 0.32, which, according to the experts, represents a 200% opportunity.

Nvidia - Unstoppable

Quarter after quarter, the market leader of chip producers, Nvidia, proves its supremacy. Especially in the gaming segment, the Company has set a gold standard. The business with gamers contributes more than 40% of the total revenue. Besides the gaming sector, Nvidia is also successful in AI, data centers and automotive.

The strategically smart merger with ARM could lift the stock to completely new valuation levels in the future. ARM supplies IP technologies to semiconductor manufacturers and central processing units around the world. The suppliers use the intellectual property to produce semiconductor chips for their products and applications. According to insiders, the US Company plans to submit an application to the European Commission for the USD 54 billion acquisition of British chip developer ARM later in September. The Reuters news agency reported that the antitrust regulator is expected to begin an investigation that will last several months. The deadline for the acquisition is March, so the elephant wedding could be close. Initial criticism has already emerged from British antitrust watchdogs that the deal could harm competition.

Nvidia's share price has increased more than fivefold since the beginning of 2020 and is trading at USD 228, close to its all-time high of USD 230. Another breakout would generate a price target of USD 260. However, the stock is slowly entering overbought territory, so investors should set stop-loss orders. If the planned transaction with ARM is canceled, major setbacks loom.

Palantir - Cooperation terminated

Criticism from data privacy campaigners over a lack of transparency in contract awards to the US data giant prompted the UK's Department of Health to terminate an existing contract with Palantir. In August, the Department of Health and Social Care had issued a tender to move its Adult Social Care Dashboard from third-party vendors to an in-house system built by BAE Systems Plc, Europe's largest defense contractor. The successor is UK-based IT consultancy Mozaic Services, which already serves clients like Aviva, BP and the UK's National Health Service.

For the Palo Alto-based data analytics company, the loss of the relatively small contract is something to get over. From a technical perspective, prices around the USD 25 support area offer good long-term entry opportunities.


The chip shortage will continue to accompany us into the near future. New systems are more likely to increase demand. BrainChip Holdings developed a revolutionary chip that works like the human brain and offers significant advantages over competing products. Nvidia is the benchmark in the semiconductor industry, but at current levels, the air to the top is getting thinner. In contrast, Palantir offers a long-term buying opportunity.

XPeng, Meta Materials, Aixtron - Welcome to the Metaverse

  • Technology

Sound fundamental analysis is essential to be successful in the stock market in the long term; at least, this was the basic rule before the Reddit hype about GameStop & Co. The news that Facebook wants to reinvent itself under the name "Meta" prompted investors to buy shares in the Company of the same name. The Company is quite promising and has great potential in the long term due to the development of new materials for 5G, photovoltaics and consumer electronics. From our side, "Congratulations, dear Meta shareholders."

Rivian Automotive, BrainChip, Infineon, Nvidia - These are jumps à la Tesla!

  • Technology

It looks like technology investors are moving into the all-in phase. Certain industries are likely expected to grow indefinitely, and this is especially true for e-mobility, lithium, hydrogen, and most recently, the chip industry. Despite all understanding for the improved prospects due to the omnipresent shortage and the political closing of ranks in favor of climate-friendly technologies, does this mean that one has to pay price-turnover ratios of 100 or even 1000 on the stock exchange? The new automotive stock Rivian had a valuation of over USD 150 billion right at the start of the stock market and had not yet sold a single car. In the year 2000, it was also thought that sales and profits could not be a benchmark for share price performance.

Alibaba, TalkPool AG, Baidu, Tencent - Brutal sell-off, what is next here?

  • Technology

The sell-off of Chinese tech giants is now entering the next round. This time it is not the regulator but a cautious outlook for the future. Alibaba's share price felt the negative sentiment yesterday and is firmly back in the grip of the bears after an interim recovery of over 30% since summer. The NASDAQ has been unimpressed with Chinese company forecasts for weeks, sending its own growth stocks from high to high. We take a look at the dynamic sector.
