Historic floods hit Germany. The rain of the last 4 weeks has brought indescribable masses of water to more than 3,000 communities in southern Germany. Flooded cellars and living rooms, washed away vehicles, and severely damaged buildings caused damage of around two billion euros in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg alone. The Ahr Valley in Rhineland-Palatinate was hit by a flood of the century back in 2021. Investors can take a sustainable approach to stock selection and set green criteria for their portfolio selection. Returns are not always a factor, but at least the savings are working for a good cause. We select a few options.

    Carbon Done Right - IPO in London ahead

    The implementation of CO2-neutral projects is the basis for sustainable resource conservation. However, a lot has to be invested in technology and environmental protection for the successful implementation of climate models. The Canadian company Carbon Done Right shows how projects can be successfully implemented with well-known donors from industry. The Company started in Africa, where industrialization is still in its infancy. However, it is still possible there to avoid the ecological mistakes of Western countries at an early stage.

    Carbon Done Right is meticulously concerned with the management of forest, land and sea areas, for example, in order to counteract industrial land consumption with new forests and mangroves. Combined with financial incentives, the idea is as simple as it is successful: so-called compensation areas are renaturalized, which are made available by local landowners for a fee and receive credits in emission certificates for these measures, which in turn can be purchased by investors. Multinational corporations are very interested in this, as they need green assets for their carbon footprint.

    Carbon Done Right has been working on its IPO in London since the beginning of 2024. The necessary paperwork has been submitted for approval. In order to better address the market, the Company also wants to implement modern blockchain-based business models. This means that every transaction in the trading of emission certificates can be carefully recorded in a decentralized ledger so that the origin, ownership and complete transaction history of each certificate can be verified and cannot be changed. In addition to the climate fantasy, the share also has its appeal for crypto experts. Carbon Done Right is currently only valued at a low EUR 2.5 million. Exciting!

    Lufthansa and TUI - Tourism is practising sustainability

    The much-maligned tourism stocks Lufthansa and TUI have been practising sustainability for years. Under the motto "MakeChangeFly", Lufthansa summarizes its measures to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, focusing primarily on green fleet modernization, sustainable fuels, and waste avoidance. However, due to its kerosene-heavy business model, achieving "zero-zero" is still a long way off. TUI wants to take another 26 years to achieve this major goal and is hoping for technological help. TUI supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is working intensively to achieve 13 individual goals. These include reducing fuel consumption, replacing marine diesel with methanol, eliminating single-use plastic items, and actively cooperating with sustainable hotel operations. The agenda also includes combating social imbalances in vacation destinations. CEO Sebastian Ebel has made this well-defined sustainability agenda his top priority.

    Anyone wishing to invest in the tourism stocks Lufthansa and TUI is currently doing so only slightly above the multi-year lows. Both companies are currently struggling with high costs and falling travel budgets among German citizens. After a 30% increase in prices, the turnover of recent years can just about be maintained, but nobody is talking about decent growth any more. With share prices of EUR 5.87 and EUR 6.95, the two stocks are now trading at 2024 P/E ratios of 4.9 and 6.5, respectively. Technically, TUI should overcome the EUR 8 mark, while Lufthansa is currently heading back towards the historic lows of around EUR 5.50. Collect!

    GameStop - Roaring Kitty forces Citron to come to its senses

    The senseless back-and-forth trading of the ailing games distributor GameStop is probably less sustainable. The so-called meme share is repeatedly recommended as a "Buy" in social forums such as Reddit. Fundamentally, investors are taking great risks here, as the Company has been making losses for years. Nevertheless, the management managed to sell as many as 75 million shares as part of an "at-the-market" offering program, raising around USD 2.14 billion in the process. According to Reuters, the average selling price per GameStop share was around USD 28.50. The video game retailer had already raised more than USD 933 million through the sale of 45 million shares in May.

    The GME share initially reacted to the successful capital raising with a further jump in the share price after Keith Gill, better known as Roaring Kitty, held a striking livestream just a few days ago. The meme frenzy then slowly came to an end over the course of the week. The reason for the downward turn was the news that Citron Research announced via X that it had liquidated its short position. "We respect the irrationality of the market," announced the short trader Citron on the X platform. Once again, only better-informed circles are likely to have profited from the rally. The analysts at Wedbush lowered their price target from USD 13.50 to USD 11.00. With USD 9.50 in cash, the operating GameStop business is valued at only USD 1.50 per share. Casino feeling at its best!

    While GameStop is making wild meme leaps, Lufthansa and TUI are attempting a turnaround. The shares of Carbon Done Right, formerly Klimat X, will soon be listed in London. Source: Refinitiv Eikon from 17.06.2024

    The storms of recent weeks have shown us the climate distortions of modern times. International efforts to finally limit CO2 emissions show that things cannot go on like this. TUI and Lufthansa are trying their hand at sustainable tourism, which is a start. A listing on the London Stock Exchange could bring the necessary attention to Carbon Done Right in Europe.

    Top energy transition shares: 100% returns through CO2 reduction! Nel ASA, Plug Power, Carbon Done Right, and dynaCERT

    Heat records, floods, and energy shortages! This summer, all climate change issues are on the table. Since the nuclear power plants were shut down, Germany has lacked a reliable base load power supply. Pronounced grid weaknesses are increasing, with no improvement in sight. Economics Minister Habeck wants to build gas-fired power plants as quickly as possible, which can later be operated with hydrogen. Nice idea! Meanwhile, Berlin's economic experts are buying French nuclear power to fill existing gaps. Nobody can scientifically prove the difference in climate technology between here and there, but German consumers are happy to pay for this nonsense through their electricity bills. This is how EU energy policy works. Since expenses are continuously rising, we focus on increasing revenue streams. Here are some ideas for your energy portfolio.

    BASF, VCI Global, Palantir - AI and digitalization as a market opportunity with high returns

    Future industries such as robotics, AI, and digitalization are accelerating the growth of companies through the automation of production processes. This also increases the opportunity for high-growth stocks. BASF has been using computer-aided technology in its various business areas for over ten years. Starting with machine learning in the chemical industry, they are now supporting countless smallholders and farmers in the agricultural business with artificial intelligence. No less a partner than Google is involved in this partnership. Does this bold move offer the traditional company a chance of above-average growth? One candidate in the high-growth sector is the Southeast Asian company VCI Global. The experienced management has an impressive track record of successful IPOs and has established itself as an expert in guiding companies through public listings. The Company also invests in future markets through an investment arm. Its focus here: Robotics, blockchain, AI. Palantir, on the other hand, is known for its big data technology, which uses AI for government institutions. Recently, some analysts have expressed concerns about the Company's high valuation. However, in Europe, one authority continues to rely on the US company's data networking. Where do the best returns lie for investors?

    Next share price jump? TUI, Aixtron, and Desert Gold

    Is the Aixtron share about to make its next leap? The shock of the profit warning was digested with a rise of over 10%. Three analysts recommend the share as a "Buy". Desert Gold is also ripe for a new rally. After more than doubling in a short space of time at the beginning of the year, it consolidated textbook style. Will it soon jump to a new yearly high? The Company is certainly not expensive, and experts consider a gold price of USD 3,000 possible. Important drilling results are also on the horizon. TUI is currently performing well operationally. The summer season business is booming, and the bankruptcy of a competitor is providing additional momentum. Nevertheless, the share is trending sideways. Could the purchase of an island be the trigger?
