Nel share slumps, a 60% chance with Bayer, Almonty Industries and BASF
The Nel share was one of the big daily losers yesterday. As a result, the upward trend has finally been broken, and analysts' opinions differ widely. Berenberg sees the BASF share as a hold after the publication of the quarterly figures. The price target is EUR 55. The figures are in line with expectations. However, the end of share buybacks and concerns about future competitiveness weigh on the stock. By contrast, analysts see up to 60% upside potential for Bayer. Almonty Industries is benefiting from the boom in electromobility and also defense spending. As the leading tungsten producer outside China, analysts suspect it could soon come to a bidding war.Read

Please turn on the power! Myriad Uranium, RWE, E.ON, Uniper, ThyssenKrupp - Renewable energy plus nuclear power is the green future!
Unfortunately, the green policy from Berlin and Brussels has not been thought through to the end. Because if mobility is to be converted entirely to electricity, it will require significantly more energy than is available today. Land consumption in Germany has increased dramatically as a result of alternative energy generation from wind and solar power. In the medium term, therefore, a further push for these energy sources will lead to a declining standard of living and less nature. Nuclear energy is a discontinued model - apparently only in Germany. It is a good thing that our neighbours France and the Czech Republic are happy to let us connect to their grids. However, this has its price and means the same risk profile for Germany as if the reactors were located here. Which stocks fit into the European energy landscape?Read

Is e-mobility a done deal? Watch out for these hydrogen stocks: Plug Power, dynaCERT, Nel ASA and ThyssenKrupp
High prices, falling subsidies and a still inadequate charging network - Germans are losing their appetite for e-cars again. Sales since the beginning of the year have fallen short of expectations. In Berlin, the first liberal resistance to the EU's intentions to remove the internal combustion car from the roads is becoming apparent. For the final vote in the EU parliament, the FDP calls for the approval of synthetic fuels, which are produced under strict CO2 neutrality. Worldwide, the EU seems to be alone with its ban on internal combustion engines. Only California is planning similar legislation. What about the green alternative, hydrogen?Read

Alibaba, Alpina Holdings, NIO - Buy Asian stocks now?
The ECB has so far failed to keep pace with the US in terms of interest rate hikes. The reward for this was inflation of 8.7% in Germany in January. The value is expected to remain at this level in February. The Federal Statistical Office recently made changes to the shopping basket and used 2020 instead of 2015 as the base year for the calculation. The high energy prices, especially in Germany, are causing great uncertainty in industry. BASF has already decided to invest several billion euros in China. There have been positive impulses for the economy from China since the easing of the Corona measures. An economic upswing could be imminent here. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies from Asia.Read

Nevertheless, many companies, too, are facing difficult decisions. We look at what is at stake and what this may mean for investors.Read

TUI, Lufthansa, Alerio Gold, Carnival - Golden summer ahead, get in now!
According to a survey, people in Germany are again in the mood to travel, despite numerous concerns. However, the assessment of the personal situation has clouded compared to last year because 29% of respondents fear an economic deterioration. Due to various catch-up effects, life is returning to the travel industry after two years of pandemic restrictions. Industry representatives are also consolidating. Lufthansa has already moved into the plus zone. At TUI, there was a reverse split to make future capital increases possible again. Where should you get in now?Read

Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, BASF - Rearmament in the defense industry, restructuring in the chemical industry
A new chapter can begin for Ukraine's defense. Rheinmetall will supply the country with border surveillance technology. Analysts raise the share price target from EUR 240 to EUR 300. A solution to the conflict with Russia is not in sight, so demand for rare metals urgently needed in armaments is rising all the higher. This is where Defense Metals comes into play. The Canadian explorer has initial data from the crushing samples and can now better estimate the costs for the feasibility study. BASF is also concerned with costs. The Company put its red pen to work and cut 2/3 of its jobs, especially at a site in Germany. A planned agar project in the US has also been suspended until further notice.Read

While the investor event at Tesla was eagerly awaited yesterday, the shares of competitor BYD were among the day's winners, with a price jump of over 5%.

The recent sell-off seems to be over, and the stock is picking up again. When will the uranium IPO come?Read

Nordex, Canadian North Resources, NIO - Strong growth in demand
The invasion of Ukraine and Europe's resulting dependence on Russian oil and gas has significantly accelerated the transformation to renewables as the largest part of the energy mix. However, wind power, photovoltaic systems, and electric cars require significantly more critical raw materials. This is already creating new problems. On the one hand, China owns the lion's share of many of these elementary metals; on the other hand, there is already excess demand for lithium, cobalt, nickel and even copper. Despite a short-term correction due to fears of recession, significant price increases are inevitable in the long term. The primary beneficiaries are raw material producers from Western countries.Read
