Evotec, Defense Metals, PayPal - There is movement here. Where is it worth getting in?

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Biotechnology
  • Technology

In the dynamic environment of the stock market, it is often significant movements in individual shares that attract the attentive eye of investors. Volatile securities lure investors with the promise of quick profits, but they may signal more than just short-term market fluctuations. When stocks start to move and deviate from their usual trading patterns, it can indicate fundamental changes in the business environment, industry-specific developments or macroeconomic turning points. For the savvy investor, this might be the opportune moment when promising entry opportunities reveal themselves. However, caution is advised: Only those prepared to look behind the scenes and analyze the factors behind the volatility can truly profit from market movements.

Bayer, Defence Therapeutics, Pfizer - Buckle up for the rebound

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

As the end of the year approaches, the savvy equity investor begins to optimize their equity portfolio for tax purposes. During this time, investors are particularly keen to review their investments and make strategic adjustments to minimize the tax burden. This approach, often referred to as "tax-loss harvesting" or "loss offsetting", involves the clever realization of losses in order to reduce capital gains tax due on profits made in the same year. This means that shares that have not performed so well over the course of the year are often sold off again in December. In the new year, the selling pressure disappears, and the shares can start their rebound. Today, we are looking at three potential candidates.

Returns beckon here: The Biotech favorites for 2024! BioNTech, Pfizer, Cardiol Therapeutics and MorphoSys in focus

  • Biotechnology

The past year was a disaster for investors in the Biotech sector - no golden check as often seen before. Despite all the gloom, the key indicator, the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (NBI), has managed an annual gain of around 7% since the end of October, thanks to a fabulous 15% upswing. The index was temporarily down 12%. High capital costs made it difficult for research-based companies to refinance, and it is only now, with falling inflation rates, that interest rate hopes are reviving. The 10-year yield in the US fell by more than 100 basis points from 4.98% to 3.84% in a short space of time. Now, the industry senses a positive outlook again. At the end of the year, the positive environment helped some Biotech stocks shake off the negative trend and initiate a turnaround. Which stocks should we focus on?

Morphosys with 50% risk? BioNTech and Defence Therapeutics share with positive news

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

Will the Morphosys share price halve? Analysts believe this is possible, although the German biotech veteran has been one of the winners in the sector this year. Overall, biotech shares were not among the favorites of investors in 2023. Nevertheless, the billion-dollar takeover of Karuna Therapeutics by Bristol-Myers Squibb announced yesterday gives the sector hope for a better performance in 2024. Today, we are focusing on three companies of different sizes, including Morphosys and Defence Therapeutics. The biotech company with a focus on immuno-oncology is closing the year with further positive news. The FDA has given the green light for the start of trials next year, which could open up a market worth billions. BioNTech has several pieces of positive news. Here, too, the FDA has made a positive statement, and the Company has achieved a milestone victory against CureVac.

Liquidia, Cardiol Therapeutics, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Pfizer - Analysts comment on their favorites

  • Biotechnology

The NASDAQ Biotechnology Index has been in the green since the beginning of the year with a mini gain of 1%, but the rebound since the lows at the end of October gives hope for a much more positive stock market year 2024 for the capital-intensive sector. In addition to the multiple interest rate hikes by the central banks, the biotech sector has been weighed down, in particular, by slower progress in research and development. With the expected start of a cycle of interest rate cuts, financing and capital costs are falling, which could lead to rising prices.

Christmas Surprises: Nel, CureVac, SMA Solar, Altech Advanced Materials

  • Batteries
  • renewableenergies
  • Biotechnology

Far from a peaceful Christmas season, these stocks had some exciting news just before Christmas Eve: While SMA Solar had to fend off a short attack, CureVac lost the first round in the patent dispute with BioNTech over the COVID-19 vaccine. CureVac claims a share of the billions in profits for itself. Will CureVac now walk away empty-handed? In contrast, Altech Advanced Materials can pop the corks before New Year's Eve. The Company has reached another milestone on the road to revolutionizing battery technology. The feasibility study promises millions in profits. Nel can look forward to special earnings as a fine is significantly lower than expected.

Shares for 2024: TUI in travel boom, Pfizer with monster dividend, Almonty Industries receives millions from Germany

  • Tungsten
  • Pharma
  • Biotechnology
  • travel

Three shares from three different sectors and countries: TUI, Pfizer, and Almonty Industries. Are they among the top performers in 2024? At least there are good reasons for a turnaround in all of them. At TUI, the turnaround seems to have already begun. Will it continue? Almonty Industries is facing a decisive year. With the help of Germany's KfW, a massive tungsten mine in South Korea is set to go into operation in 2024. If this succeeds, turnover and profits will likely multiply in the coming years. Like so many Corona winners, Pfizer shares have suffered withdrawal symptoms this year. Will the pharmaceutical giant get back on track in 2024 after hitting a ten-year low? In any case, the dividend yield of 6% is attractive.

Several 100% upside potential? BioNTech, Bayer, Cardiol Therapeutics and Evotec in analyst check

  • Biotechnology
  • Pharma

We take a look at analysts' opinions on biotech and pharmaceutical stocks. Jefferies recently renewed its "Buy" recommendation for Evotec with a target price of EUR 34. The latest partnerships confirm that the Company's unique business model is working. The situation at Bayer is quite different. While the CEO is announcing radical changes, analysts are slashing their price targets, in some cases significantly. In contrast, analysts believe that Cardiol Therapeutics could achieve several 100% gains. The cash register is full to bursting, and an exciting news flow can be expected in 2024. At BioNTech, only the cash position is currently convincing. However, this is not enough for a buy recommendation.
