When young founders develop business models, it is often a question of "purpose," i.e. the best possible (good) purpose of a company. For the new generation, money is no longer the only thing that counts. Instead, earning money and doing good are the watchwords. On the stock market, too, some companies make the world a little better. We look at three stocks and find out whether there is money to be made in them.

    SMA Solar: Thoughts after the profit warning

    The share of SMA Solar recently had to give ground. The Company published a profit warning. The business with solar inverters is not going as well as planned. The expected sales are now still 10 to 12 % below the previously targeted goals. The lower sales have an even more significant impact on the expected profit: Instead of EUR 75 to 95 million, it is now expected to be EUR 50 to 65 million. If the lower figures are taken as a basis, this represents a drop of one-third. But how should investors react now?

    The share price has fallen by around 15% since the profit warning. Cautious investors could wait until the price accurately reflects the lower expected earnings. But that is rarely how the stock market works. Either the market expects the lost profits to be postponed into the next year and turns earlier, or it even comes to an exaggeration. To assess this, one either dives deep into the fundamental situation at SMA Solar or orients oneself to chart technical marks. Fundamentally, the Company is supported because it has just achieved the turnaround - setbacks are typical in such a phase. In addition, the new growth course is to be supported by all three business segments, i.e. rooftop systems, commercial systems, and large-scale power plants - so there is no problem child. From a chart perspective, the share has found support above support levels between EUR 35 and 36. If this continues, the Company, which aims to be completely CO2-neutral by 2025, could take off again.

    Memiontec: Clean water megatrend

    Memiontec is a company that is also committed to doing good and at the same time operates in a fascinating economic region. The water treatment specialists from Singapore operate in the Asian region and have been on the market for more than twenty years. In Indonesia, in particular, the Company works with government agencies and is constantly moving projects forward. However, the Company recently won two new tenders with a total volume of SGD 12.7 million from Singapore.

    As the Company is currently valued at only around EUR 60 million on the stock market, the major order caused the share price to jump. In the meantime, the share has consolidated at this level and is trending sideways. In view of the technological competence - Memiontec uses biological, chemical and physical processes for water treatment - and the general trend towards sustainability, the share can be considered an exciting growth stock. Especially in Asia, the issue of clean water is essential given rapidly growing mega-cities. Investors can make a note of Memiontec. Every new order can lead to a new valuation.

    CureVac: Is a comeback on the way?

    CureVac's failed first Corona vaccine project was the main reason for its revaluation. But anyone who writes the Company off because of this is making a mistake. The Tübingen-based Company still believes that it can help with possible mutations with vaccines. The mRNA technology also has many applications, such as a hope in the fight against cancer. The CureVac share has made a slight comeback in recent weeks. It will now be necessary for the stock to maintain its current level above EUR 57. The signs are good for a continuation of the recovery. However, the share is not a sure-fire winner.


    Doing good and earning money - various companies combine both, and investors are spoiled for choice. While former shooting stars have yet to prove they can get back on track after setbacks, newcomers such as Memiontec's water purifiers are gradually winning over more investors. Where the journey can lead when good products meet high demand is shown by the share price performance of many former stock market shooting stars.

    The Asia region remains on the growth path. The economies of China, Singapore, and Indonesia achieved 4.5 to 6.5% growth in 2021. Prosperity is not yet comparable with the West. But the developed zones around the metropolises have already shown high momentum for years. The real estate market, in particular, is booming in China as well as in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan. It is uncertain how long the low interest rates will continue to support these markets because the Federal Reserve has already announced that it will exit the liquidity bubble. Who can surprise in the current environment?
