    Steinhoff International: What gamblers have to endure

    Steinhoff International's stock has been a hot stock for several weeks. Since 2017, the Company has been embroiled in a legal battle. After accounting violations, it rained lawsuits against the Dutch Company with its operational headquarters in South Africa. In total, the lawsuits cover claims amounting to around EUR 8 billion. The Company itself wants to settle these partly in cash and partly in shares in Pepkor. Recently, Pepkor reported quarterly figures. These sent positive signals to gamblers around the penny stock Steinhoff International; if the offer is attractive, the probability of a settlement between the plaintiffs and the furniture group increases. The better the figures at Pepkor, the more likely plaintiffs will also settle with shares in the Company, so the thinking goes.

    But speculation on a settlement is by no means a foregone conclusion. First, there are several plaintiffs, and second, litigation per se is not a suitable environment for investments - too often, there are nasty surprises or an information advantage of professional investors. Yesterday, the Steinhoff share climbed from EUR 0.09 to EUR 0.13 within a few hours, only to correct back below the EUR 0.10 mark. Any gamblers who want to accompany this roller coaster ride should accept such fluctuations at least intraday. The exit should work with fixed limits and directly place these orders after purchasing a share on the market. In this way, the exit is guaranteed and there are no book profits.

    AdTiger: When does this Asian tiger start to jump?

    In contrast to highly hyped gambling stocks, investors can lay the foundation for later success with relatively unknown stocks at entry time. If small companies with an exciting business model can be discovered before the masses, a favorable entry price inevitably results in a lower risk. On the one hand, such stocks have a lower drop height, and, on the other hand, a "safety buffer" is quickly created on the market when more investors become aware of the respective story. The AdTiger share offers just such an investment story.

    The Company sees itself as an advertising platform that helps Chinese advertisers to place ads on the most popular networks. Specifically, AdTiger works with Facebook, Google, Yahoo and also TikTok. In addition to its involvement in China, AdTiger is now looking to India and expects further growth from their vast market. A key to more growth could also be the AdTensor software developed by AdTiger, which uses artificial intelligence and large amounts of data to control and optimize ad campaigns. AdTiger is currently valued at around EUR 80 million and has more than EUR 20 million in cash. As the value is presently trending cautiously sideways, investors can analyze the stock in peace and plan an entry in a considered manner.

    NEL: Here are the decisive marks

    Given the nervous price jumps of their favorite stock, shareholders of the hydrogen pioneer NEL are, at best, capable of deliberate action after the close of trading. Although NEL has gained more than 100% over a three-month period, the warning signals are increasing. Three times in the past four weeks, the stock has gone into reverse beyond the EUR 3.20 mark. Investors sitting on book profits in NEL but still believe in the share's long-term success can reduce part of their risk using partial sales given the large drop in the share price. The chart also provides guidance: While additional selling pressure is to be expected below the EUR 3 mark, the share could pick up speed again beyond the previous high from the beginning of January.

    Lufthansa, wallstreet:online, Block - Shares with catch-up potential

    • Investments

    The nervousness was palpable as the US indices fell for five days in a row. Reasons for consolidation are quickly found - the Omicron variant, inflation and the fear of rising interest rates provide uncertainty for the bulls. Especially the big tech companies would suffer from an interest rate hike, and many tech stocks were already punished and investors preferred to invest in value stocks. If the interest rate hike comes, there will likely be further markdowns in the tech sector. Today, we look at three companies that we believe could be on the verge of a turnaround.

    Gazprom, Memiontec, E.ON, Siemens Energy - Water is the oil of tomorrow!

    • Investments

    In the mind of current politics, the world of tomorrow is supposed to get by without oil and petroleum products. Modern fuels with fewer emissions and the abandonment of plastic packaging could reduce the amount of oil and plastic products needed. But with this line of thinking, all countries would have to act in unison and put the petrochemical industry on the sidelines. Whether this will result in less plastic ending up in the Pacific remains questionable, but we are already experiencing one effect: a noticeable increase in the price of all energy and utility services. Green policies are nice, but they slow down economic performance considerably. Who will benefit from the long-term policy choices?

    The year 2021 was often a year to forget for investors in the Asian region. Chinese stocks, in particular, suffered from government regulation, causing many stocks to plummet despite good numbers. After the dip in 2020 due to the Corona pandemic, the economy made significant gains, but this rapid growth will not continue so quickly in 2022. Nevertheless, the first investors are sensing a trend reversal due to the discrepancy in stock market developments. While the US stock market climbed strongly in 2021, the Hang Seng fell 13% plus. There has not been such a difference since the Asian crisis. We take a look at three interesting shares from the Asian region.
