The energy turnaround is becoming unbearable. But it will take time for the world to switch to renewable energies in private and public life. Today, we take a look at three winning stocks. Among them is BYD. The Chinese carmaker has switched to hybrid and all-electric vehicles and is on track to take Tesla's place as the leading electric carmaker. The first three models for Germany have now been confirmed. At Nordex, sentiment is improving. The share price has jumped, and a large order gives hope. However, wind turbines and batteries cannot be manufactured without raw materials such as tungsten. Now a German research house has taken a closer look at Almonty Industries. The share is on the verge of a revaluation and has a price potential of 100%.

    Almonty before revaluation: Over 100% price potential

    Sphene Capital initiated coverage of Almonty Industries with a Buy rating and a price target of CAD 1.67. Currently, the stock is trading at CAD 0.67. The German research house believes that the tungsten producer is facing a re-rating due to the ongoing expansion of its own value creation through the construction of a vertically integrated nano-tungsten oxide processing plant to supply South Korea's battery anode and cathode industry. Almonty's shares are valued at less than 1.8 times sales and less than 5.5 times EBIT for 2024. According to the analysts, this is too low. Analysts expect Almonty to generate revenue of about CAD 104 million and an EBIT of CAD 35 million in 2024. Earnings per share are expected to be CAD 0.12 in 2024.

    Almonty Industries is a Canadian-based mining, exploration and
    development company that holds a portfolio of four high-grade
    tungsten projects in stable Tier 1 countries in South Korea and the
    Iberian Peninsula. The group's flagship tungsten deposit is Almonty
    Korea Tungsten. It is scheduled to come on stream in 2023 and is expected to be the largest tungsten mine outside China. A supply contract has already been signed with the Plansee industrial group. At a minimum price of USD 235 per MTU, Almonty could generate an operating cash flow of at least USD 580 million with Plansee alone within the minimum term of 15 years. The agreement covers about 50% of the expected production. It should be possible to sell the remaining volumes, as South Korea is the largest per capita consumer of tungsten, and tungsten is in demand worldwide - e.g. for photovoltaic and battery manufacturing.

    Nordex: Everything should get better from 2023 onwards

    The Nordex share has made strong gains in recent weeks. It went up from around EUR 7.50 to around EUR 11.50. Investors are putting the poor operating performance in 2022 behind them and hoping that the wind turbine manufacturer will get a grip on its production problems in 2023 - Because the order books are full. Just yesterday, the next significant order was reported. A subsidiary of the Polish group RE Alloys has ordered ten N131/3600 turbines with a total capacity of 35 MW. In addition, Nordex will also be responsible for servicing the turbines for a period of 15 years. Construction of the "Dzwola" wind farm is scheduled to begin in autumn 2023. The first electricity is to be produced from the beginning of 2024. "The wind farm is part of a wider program to ensure that RE Alloys' energy needs are met entirely from its own renewable sources. This program will help the environment because RE Alloys, as the third largest producer of ferrosilicon in Europe, consumes more energy than the city of Katowice," said Miroslaw Wilczek, CEO of RE Alloys.

    However, with the recent rally in the share price, analysts' price targets have almost been reached. Goldman Sachs sees the Nordex share as fairly valued at EUR 13.10. Most recently, Goldman analysts sharply reduced their estimates for 2022. With a price target of EUR 14 Jefferies is somewhat more optimistic. From the analysts' point of view, the third quarter showed that Nordex is getting a better grip on its production problems. They trust the wind turbine producer to achieve the 8% EBITDA margin target by mid-2024.

    BYD: The first three models for Germany are fixed

    Even though BYD recently had to cancel the IPO of its chip division, things are going well for the Company operationally. The Chinese company has sold another electric bus to the San Francisco Muni Transit Association (SFMTA). The SFMTA is testing three BYD buses for their suitability for the difficult-to-ride hills in San Francisco. If the test phase is successful, BYD can hope for further orders. San Francisco, for example, has set itself the goal of becoming completely electric and climate-neutral by 2040. BYD is also making inroads in the school bus sector. It recently unveiled a new electric school bus for the US market. Production is to take place in California. This shows that BYD is not only stepping on the gas with electric cars.

    The passenger car segment will remain the growth engine as BYD is setting its sights on the European market in the coming year. This year, three models will be launched on the German market: The ATTO 3 and Tang SUV and the Han luxury sedan. As reported by manager magazin, BYD aims to sell as many as 120,000 electric cars in Germany by 2026. That would correspond to a market share of around 10%. On the one hand, sales are to take place via flagship stores in major German cities. On the other hand, six dealer groups with a nationwide network of car dealerships, which also carry established premium brands such as Mercedes-Benz or BMW, are to offer BYD vehicles.

    2023 will be exciting! Nordex has to get its costs under control, and then higher share prices are also possible. The new tungsten mine will sooner or later lead to a revaluation of Almonty shares. Whether BYD's European expansion will be successful, we will be able to follow live in Germany.

    Panic at AIXTRON and NEL! Is Kraken Energy an AI beneficiary?

    • Mining
    • Uranium

    • renewableenergies
    • AI

    AIXTRON shares lost more than 5% yesterday. In addition to the price slide on the NASDAQ, a negative analyst comment added to the negative sentiment. Both the rating and target price of the AIXTRON share were significantly reduced. The same applies to Nel. The hydrogen specialist's recovery attempt was mercilessly stifled, and the share lost over 15%. The lack of incoming orders, in particular, is making analysts nervous. In contrast, Kraken Energy could soon be seen as an AI beneficiary. After all, Elon Musk is not the only one warning of an energy crisis and calling for the expansion of nuclear energy. Voices are getting louder that the computing power required for artificial intelligence will cause energy consumption to explode. In order to prevent a blackout, many countries are turning to nuclear power.

    Out of defense, into gold!? Renk, Barrick Gold, Desert Gold

    • Mining
    • Gold
    • defense
    • armaments

    On Tuesday, German defense stocks were shaken briefly and sharply. In a flash crash, Renk, Rheinmetall and Hensoldt fell by more than 10%. This indicates that defense stocks have run hot. The future prospects for the companies are undeniably positive, but a consolidation is in order. Gold is an entirely different story. The price of the precious metal is at record levels, but the shares of gold producers are still a long way from their 2020 highs. This applies to the heavyweights like Barrick Gold and Endeavour Mining, but even more so to the explorers. One of the promising explorers is Desert Gold. The Company operates in an attractive region, is on the verge of becoming a Tier 1 mine producer, and is a takeover candidate. Barrick Gold is one of many companies that could make a move on Desert Gold.

    Palantir, Globex Mining, Bayer - The trend is pointing upwards

    • Pharma
    • Software

    After a successful first quarter of 2024, the DAX and Dow Jones took a well-deserved breather last week. In contrast, the precious metal markets for gold and silver continued their upward trend. Gold also reached new absolute highs of USD 2,354 per ounce. While gold producers such as Barrick Gold and Newmont remained in hibernation, they have been following the rising base price for several weeks now. There is currently also an opportunity for smaller commodity stocks to participate disproportionately in the upward trend.
