NEL ASA, Saturn Oil & Gas, VARTA - which stock will be the top performer in 2020?

  • Investments

If it runs, it runs! This or something similar is how the demand for the stocks of trend themes can be described. Last year, shares of hydrogen companies were in great demand. Also the interest in energy storage was very high. But what did not work at all was the extraction of energy raw materials in the traditional way. A backlog demand has emerged, which will pay off in 2020 according to experts for investors who are there in time.

E.ON, EnBW or RWE - who is restructuring Germany after Merkel?

  • Central planned economy

The planned economy is de facto the opposite of the market economy. In a market economy, the free market decides what is produced and offered in what quantity and type of products and services. In a planned economy, the state determines what is to be implemented - or rather: implemented - in what periods and how. The disadvantage of a planned economy is that plans are often implemented inadequately and with delays. In the past, communist governments have worked with the system of the planned economy, but due to the lack of success the states have failed economically. Under German Chancellor Angela Merkel, patterns of planned economy are increasingly becoming apparent and economic challenges are growing exponentially. At the turn of the year, the problems in the energy sector, among others, increase intensify.

BMW, Daimler or Volkswagen - who gives up first?

  • Mobility

Ludwig Erhard, the second German Chancellor and economist, said in the 1950s the much-quoted sentence: "No state can give its citizens more than it has taken from them before". A conscientious government should therefore strive to keep the delta between tax revenue and benefit to the taxpayer as small as possible. In this context, government subsidies are always a sensitive issue. The economic sustainability of government support for technology and innovation must lead to industries and companies learning to stand on their own two feet and the market regulating demand. The solar industry in Germany is a prime example of how tax money can be wasted. No well-known German company in the solar industry has survived in competition with Asia. Is there any reason to worry that German electromobility will suffer a similar fate?

Lynas Corporation, Mkango, Ucore Rare Metals - who will benefit most from the U.S. Army?

  • Rare Earth Elements

The market for rare earth elements is dominated by the People's Republic of China. Worldwide production of rare earths in 2018 was around 170,000 tonnes, of which 120,000 tonnes came from China. This shows how much the global industries have become dependent on a good relationship with China. In 2010, following a diplomatic dispute with Japan, the People's Republic restricted exports, which caused prices for niche metals to skyrocket.

SAP, Siemens, Volkswagen, EXMceuticals - who has the best strategy for Africa?

  • Africa

The African continent is diverse and rich in people - more than just a beautiful travel destination. The population is estimated at around 1.3 billion people, which is comparable to China. The multitude of mineral resources and natural conditions offer an excellent starting position to strengthen the domestic economy and combat possible causes of flight. Various countries and companies have discovered Africa for themselves as a workbench, raw material region and sales market. However, sustainable stability and prosperity can usually only be achieved through education, and connection to that the different approaches of economy and politics can be of different importance for the local people.
