Due to the global arms race and the shift in focus, defense stocks such as Rheinmetall and Hensoldt are currently all the rage on the stock market. Unfortunately, this trend will likely continue over the next few years as orders increase. In contrast, another fundamental topic, climate change, is currently receiving little attention, at least in the markets. Renewable energy companies have been correcting for months but are currently increasingly working on bottoming out. In the long term, this presents anti-cyclical entry opportunities.

    Rheinmetall - Sound barrier broken

    The share price went through the magic EUR 500 mark like butter, which once again means a new all-time high for the integrated technology group from Düsseldorf. This puts Rheinmetall shares at the top of the best-performing stocks in Germany's leading index, the DAX, with a 75% increase in price since the beginning of the year. The increasing geopolitical tensions promise further bulging order books for Germany's most important defense company.

    This is also the view of the analysts at DZ Bank, who have raised the fair value from EUR 376 to EUR 524 with a "Buy" rating. The US investment bank JP Morgan is even more optimistic about Rheinmetall's future and has raised its target price from EUR 455 to EUR 600. The increasing fundamental trend towards upgrading and the excellent network in Central and Eastern Europe were cited as arguments.

    The Company, led by CEO Armin Papperger, recently made headlines by selling shares worth nearly EUR 5 million and securing another billion-dollar contract from the German armed forces. According to reports, the German government is buying 123 wheeled armored vehicles, bringing the volume of the order to around EUR 2.7 billion including services. The new wheeled tanks will replace the Wiesel mini-tank. The so-called "infantry heavy weapon carriers" will be delivered from 2025.

    Carbon Done Right Developments - Highly innovative in the billion-dollar market

    Until recently, the Company, valued at CAD 5.21 million, was listed under Klimat X. With the name change, the team around CEO James Tansey also announced a far-reaching transformation into a technology company that represents a significant advance in terms of precision, traceability and accountability of the process for generating emission certificates using state-of-the-art AI technologies.

    The market for carbon credits is expected to grow eightfold by the end of the decade according to the Boston Consulting Group. Carbon Done Right is one of the few pure players to meet the high demand for "carbon credits". This is done by investing in research, restoration and maintenance of land and marine ecosystems together with partners. These ecosystems are selected to protect and enhance the sequestration of greenhouse gases or to convert them from a degraded state to fully functional ecosystems. Carbon Done Right is currently active with projects in Sierra Leone, Ghana, Suriname and Mexico, with Sierra Leone emerging as the flagship. Here, the Canadians have planted 1,400 hectares of forest and 14 hectares of mangroves and have signed a previously announced agreement with BP Carbon Trading to acquire at least 5,000 hectares, which will generate up to 1.9 million tons of carbon credits over 30 years.

    Another important piece of the puzzle for the future is the planned merger of the London Carbon Exchange LCE, which has developed a blockchain-based platform for emissions trading. Emissions certificates are "tokenized", which creates a high level of transparency and security. As part of this, Carbon Done Right is aiming for a dual listing of its shares on London's AIM.

    The extreme transformation into a highly innovative technology company in the exponential growth market of emissions trading has yet to be recognized on the stock exchange so far. The Carbon Done Right share has lost around 50% of its value since the beginning of the year.

    Siemens Energy - Chart picture brightens up

    The technical chart of Siemens Energy shares continues to brighten after reaching a six-month high. After a disastrous stock market year in 2023, the Munich-based company is one of the best performers in the DAX with a gain of around 47% behind Rheinmetall and Daimler Truck. The increase in the share price, which currently stands at EUR 16.26 for the electrical and energy technology manufacturer, could be achieved by breaking through the EUR 17.14 mark. After a drastic profit warning, a price gap was torn here, which would only be closed at the EUR 23.38 level.

    The latest jump in the share price was triggered by a report from the news service Bloomberg, indicating that Siemens Energy could soon resume delivering wind turbines. In the previous year, significant quality problems led to a sharp fall in the share price and billions of euros in losses.

    In its research, Bloomberg spoke to several potential customers to determine whether they expect onshore turbines to be delivered soon. The energy group Repsol from Spain and BayWa are expecting offers from the Munich-based company in the near future.

    When asked to provide a specific delivery date, Siemens Energy refrained from giving any information but emphasized to Bloomberg that it is working hard to resume deliveries as soon as possible.

    Rheinmetall received another billion-dollar order from the German government and broke through the EUR 500 mark for the first time. Siemens Energy is expected to start delivering wind turbines again soon. Carbon Done Right Developments is transforming into an AI-powered technology company and offers excellent growth opportunities in a rapidly growing market.

    Attention Nvidia! The turnaround check for Nel ASA, Saturn Oil + Gas, Lufthansa and TUI

    It looks like a peak is forming in Artificial Intelligence. The most prominent share here is Nvidia. With a spectacular rally, the value has surged by over 100% in just 6 months. However, the share price is now stuttering, and there have been no new highs for days. The charts for TUI and Lufthansa also show an upward reversal. The latest wage negotiations have tightened the cost structure considerably. Also, a significant amount of revenue has been lost due to the numerous strikes. And now the Middle East crisis is flaring up, making the entire region a risk for holidaymakers. However, the rise in oil prices is giving oil companies a new lease of life. Here is a list of interesting investments.

    Drumbeat at TUI! Caution with Renk and Nel! dynaCERT Stock with Potential!

    • Defense

    A drumbeat is sounding at TUI! In an interview, the tourism group's CFO hints that shareholders can soon look forward to a dividend again. On the other hand, tensions in the Middle East are causing short-term uncertainty in tourism shares. Conversely, defense stocks are once again benefiting from the possibility of an escalation. However, analysts currently see little further potential for Renk. The retrofit kits from dynaCERT offer great potential for reducing emissions from diesel vehicles. If VERRA clears the way for CO2 certificates, the share could go through the roof. Is the Company preparing for this with a personnel change? In contrast, the Nel share seeks support, and tomorrow promises to be exciting.

    Plug Power deeply in the red! Thyssenkrupp Nucera and First Hydrogen shares with positive newsflow and upside potential!

    Not only is Plug Power's share price in the red, but also its earnings for the year 2023. Losses at the US company are still growing faster than revenue. Together with its struggling industry peer, Nel ASA, Plug is dragging down the entire hydrogen sector. However, there are positive developments. For example, the hydrogen-powered fuel cell commercial vehicle from First Hydrogen in England has impressed in test drives under real conditions. The Company is currently valued at only CAD 50 million and offers an entry opportunity. Analysts also see more than 100% upside potential for Thyssekrupp Nucera. Is the wheat separating from the chaff in the hydrogen sector?
