  • Investments

German government offices, doctors' offices and even schools show that digitization is far from complete. The current pandemic is ruthlessly exposing the problems. Processes are still too complex, characterized by media disruptions, and data cannot be exchanged efficiently. Companies that offer digital solutions and have already gained experience with digitization can be the beneficiaries of tomorrow. We present three stocks.

    SAP: How are smaller customers coping with the pandemic?

    Those who think very conservatively may consider the SAP share. The Walldorf-based group has been producing software for business customers for decades and has solutions for every area that can also be interlinked. The software regulates warehousing, accounting and also human resources from a single source. In this way, SAP has been able to gain around 400,000 customers over the years. In the first 9 months of the fiscal year, SAP nevertheless reported somewhat mixed figures. Sales climbed by only 1.5%.

    To ensure that there is growth in the future, SAP is focusing on investments in research and development and wants to outsource more and more services to the cloud. By 2025, revenue from the cloud is expected to rise to over EUR 22 billion. This perspective is encouraging and also opens up price potential for the share. However, it is unclear how well the software Company's many customers will come through the crisis. As a rule, investments are postponed for the time being if the figures are not right. Since SAP's customers include more than just corporations, there are still some question marks surrounding the next quarterly figures. Otherwise, the Company remains solidly positioned - but the stock is not likely to make any great leaps.

    wallstreet:online: Media + Brokerage = Growth

    One share that has shown very dynamic development since the outbreak of the pandemic is wallstreet:online. The operator of stock market portals for discussions and financial news also entered the brokerage market more than a year ago. Smartbroker was able to exceed all growth forecasts. It quickly reached 80,000 customers and aims to win over as many as 200,000 customers with its service by the end of 2021. To make this happen, wallstreet:online recently invested in personnel. In addition to the experienced manager Matthias Hach (previously Comdirect, flatex/ViTrade and Etrade), the experienced financial expert Roland Nicklaus recently moved from the Supervisory Board to the Management Board and will be the new CFO. Nicklaus' responsibility: to intensify contact with investors.

    At the same time, wallstreet:online is working on finally offering its customers a comprehensive app. The broker has long been on a par with typical smartphone brokers in terms of conditions - with better service. If customers can soon trade even more conveniently from their smartphones, there will be hardly any arguments against the broker, which is already winning over many customers. As a further boost to growth, the wallstreet:online team is planning to link its content more effectively with the brokerage offering in the future. In concrete terms, this could mean that readers can trade directly from articles or forum posts. According to the ulterior motive, anyone who makes it easy for customers to trade should also be pleased with rising sales. The stock has recently corrected about a third of its value. Investors are likely to have in mind that the growth of a broker also costs money. But since wallstreet:online itself has the best distribution channels in its portfolio with its portals, this growth should be cheaper to realize than with the competition. The share is interesting below EUR 20.

    Bitcoin Group: Squinting at the Coinbase IPO

    Things are also exciting at Bitcoin Group. The Company has its bank, a trading center for cryptocurrencies and the know-how to develop financial products around blockchain technology. The stock ran in step with the booming cryptocurrencies for a long time but corrected after the turn of the year. In the meantime, however, the value seems to have found a bottom. The IPO of the trading platform Coinbase could also be a trendsetter for the share: If the IPO is successful and the price continues to rise, this may also justify higher valuations for Bitcoin.de, the Bitcoin Group's trading platform. The stock is attractive, but the Company is by no means without competition. Given the combination of the media business and brokerage, wallstreet:online currently looks better.

    Buy or sell? Nel, Zalando, Aspermont under analyst review

    • Commodities
    • Investments
    • Hydrogen
    • Mining

    After the heavy losses of the past months, a countermovement seems to be starting at the moment. Whether this will turn into a real summer rally remains to be seen. Buy or sell is the question. Analysts see a price potential of over 50% for Nel ASA. Even though competition from China and India is increasing. Aspermont also appears attractive at the current price level. The latest quarterly figures were positive, and the positioning of the small-cap in the booming commodities sector is promising. At Zalando, analysts react to the profit warning, and the price targets are significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some advise buying the online fashion retailer, but not everyone.

    TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Lufthansa - The travel market is back - where are the share prices?

    • travel
    • Investments
    • Camping

    The travel market has changed dramatically since 2019 in light of the Corona pandemic. Due to the most extensive pandemic standstill in 2020, the capacities for flights, rail traffic and accommodation were adjusted downwards dramatically. Major cost reductions occurred primarily through de-occupancy and staff reductions. Travel companies cut their basic capacity utilization with partners to such an extent that many smaller operations had to pull out of the race, and large corporations could only survive with extensive state aid. Now, however, the situation has turned 180 degrees and demand for travel is exploding. However, this time it seems difficult to ramp up the reduced capacities in line with demand. We look at the opportunities of three typical industry players.

    Commerzbank, Triumph Gold, Bitcoin Group - Inflation alert! Which stocks bring returns in this market environment?

    • Gold
    • Crypto
    • Investments

    We have not seen such high inflation for decades. Looking back, it becomes clear that one cannot compare the situation back then with today. Back then, interest rates were at 12%, and as a saver, you could generate an increase in value for your money despite inflation. Today, interest rates are much lower than inflation. Putting money in a savings account will not bring any investor a profit. If you want to protect your money, the first thing that comes to mind is gold because it is considered crisis-proof. But nowadays, it almost seems as if cryptocurrencies could outperform gold. Alternatively, one can bet on stocks that cover these areas. We take a closer look at three companies.
