Climate conference and Venice turns green! Oil remains in demand; goodbye hydrogen? Nel ASA, Prospera Energy and Plug Power in Focus

  • Hydrogen
  • Oil
  • renewableenergies

Too little, too slow, too half-hearted! Climate activists in Italy have drawn attention to themselves with a spectacular campaign. The "Extinction Rebellion" group members painted the famous Grand Canal in Venice fluorescent green. Some activists abseiled from the Rialto Bridge over the central canal of the northern Italian lagoon city on Saturday afternoon and poured dye into the water. Their action was intended to protest against the "ridiculous progress" made at the COP28 World Climate Conference in Dubai. "We are tired, we have had enough of being taken for fools by our governments and knowing that our future is in danger while politicians do nothing," they said in a statement to the press. How do we tackle the energy issues of the future? A look at selected energy stocks paints a clear picture.

Following the recent year-end rally on the world's stock markets, the chances of further price gains are good. Even in the last month of an eventful stock market year, plenty of activity remains. The course is being set with regard to the strategic goals for a successful 2024 as a whole. In addition, even in mid-December, major capital measures must be finalized before the books are closed.

Gold and Silver in 2024 - Breakout or Crash? Blackrock Silver, TUI and Lufthansa should show their colors now!

  • Mining
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Tourism
  • travel

A new record high for the DAX at 16,782 - who would have thought it? The stock market is anything but boring at the moment. Gold started the week at a new all-time high of USD 2,147 in Asian trading, then sold off and even fell below the USD 2,000 mark again over the course of the week. Although the central banks are currently absorbing 30% of production, the price is unable to hold steady at the top. This is likely due to the lower-than-expected inflation at the beginning of the last quarter of the year. All in all, lower inflation also means lower interest rates. This is actually a bullish signal for gold and silver, but things often turn out differently than expected. On the consumption side, the tourism market should also be considered due to higher household budgets. Is this where the top yields for the coming year are hiding?

Infineon, First Hydrogen, Plug Power - Opportunities upon opportunities in decarbonization

  • Hydrogen
  • renewableenergies
  • fuelcell

Once again, 2023 was a stock market year to forget for companies in the renewable energy sector. Share price falls of around 70% for market-leading companies were the rule rather than the exception. However, decarbonization is underway, demand is rising, and the potential is huge. As a result, there are tremendous long-term opportunities for disproportionately high share price gains in selected stocks.

Which stocks are leading the fight against cancer and chronic diseases? Defence Therapeutics, Merck and BioNTech

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

The pharmaceutical industry is facing complex developments in the fight against cancer, with Defence Therapeutics making significant progress with the successful FDA filing for its drug for the targeted treatment of tumors. The growing market opportunities in oncology until 2032 underline the potential of this breakthrough. In contrast, Merck KGaA is experiencing a severe setback with an 11% share price decline following the failure of evobrutinib for the relief of MS in late-stage clinical trials. According to analysts, this also impacts the Company's valuation. Despite promising cancer-fighting approaches, BioNTech faces uncertainties due to a reduced revenue forecast for 2023 and an 'Underweight' rating from JP Morgan. Despite these challenges, the sector remains dynamic. Find out which shares could be worthwhile in the long term here.

Snow chaos and climate madness, who is playing in the Premier League of the energy transition? Nel ASA, Power Nickel and Plug Power under the microscope

  • Mining
  • Nickel
  • BatteryMetals
  • renewableenergies
  • Energy

Snow chaos and new record highs. While the DAX 40 demonstrates itself as the world's best blue-chip index, the German economy is currently navigating downward. It is not the earnings outlook that is presently driving share prices but the hope of lower interest rates. Meanwhile, the endless climate debates in Dubai continue. Among realists, however, there must be fears that the local oil lobby will not let a German know-it-all put a stop to the lavish margins with fossil fuels. There will, at least, be a friendly Arab nod to the 2050 climate goals and exclusive indulgence for the high-ranking German delegation. Whether this justifies federal expenditure of more than EUR 50 million is something we will leave uncommented. More important is a look at the top titles of the upcoming energy transition - where is the next 100 percenter lurking?

TUI strong! BYD reacts to share price slide! First Hydrogen share price about to jump?

  • Hydrogen
  • fuelcell
  • Tourism
  • Electromobility

TUI shares reacted to strong figures yesterday with a jump of over 10%. The tourism group also announced its intention to leave London and relocate its headquarters to Germany. However, the initial reactions from analysts were somewhat cautious. Given BYD's disappointing performance throughout the year, price reductions and negative analyst opinions have led to another sell-off. Now, the Company has decided to buy back its own shares, but will that be enough for an upward trend? First Hydrogen has several pieces of promising news. The Canadians have introduced their hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles in the UK, and interest is high. Furthermore, they plan to enter battery production with a partner. Will the three shares take off further, driven by the positive news?

New developments in the healthcare market: Cardiol Therapeutics, Amazon and Bayer shares in focus

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma
  • Healthcare

Cardiol Therapeutics, a clinical-stage life sciences company focusing on therapies for heart inflammation, has secured a renowned clinic to advance its Phase II MAvERIC-Pilot study. This study, focused on combating recurrent pericarditis, promises to provide sound approaches to improve the quality of life of affected patients. Amazon has been dabbling in the healthcare sector since 2015 and is gradually conquering the telemedicine market. The path to telemedicine for Prime members, through the acquisition of companies such as "One Medical" and "PillPack", poses challenges. In contrast, Bayer is once again caught in the crossfire of legal disputes. The recent glyphosate trial loss before a jury in Philadelphia calls for a strategic realignment. At the same time, Bayer is attempting to provide new impetus in the area of women's health through a partnership in the field of hormonal contraception. Find out which development holds promise here.

Siemens Energy, Defense Metals, Rheinmetall - Rare earths as a risk factor

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • renewableenergies
  • armaments

The scarcity of and access to rare earths has become a major global concern. China plays a decisive role in the production of rare earths, as the country mines 60% of all rare earths worldwide and processes 85% of them. After the US banned the export of AI chips, China considered banning the export of rare earth metals. These trade blockades from both sides are causing tensions in international trade relations and concerns about supply bottlenecks. Rare earths play an important role in wind power, armaments, medicine, electromobility and the electronics industry. As an investor, one should be aware of these risks.
