  • Nickel
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

Nickel is a versatile metal that plays an important role in various industries. One of the largest applications of nickel is in stainless steel production, where it provides hardness, corrosion resistance and heat resistance. Nickel has also always been a crucial factor for batteries. Since the rise of electromobility, the metal has gained even more significance. Due to its ability to store high energy densities, it contributes to improving performance. Using it in the cathode achieves higher capacities and longer lifetimes, which is essential for electric cars. Given the growing trend towards electromobility, nickel is becoming an important raw material for the energy transition.

When investing in stocks, the goal is always to find low entry prices to optimize long-term performance. Unfortunately, buying downward-trending stocks promises less success than investing in stocks that constantly reach new highs. This principle embodies the wisdom of "The Trend is Your Friend." In applying this advice, one should let profits run and limit losses. A sensible risk diversification also requires a portfolio approach that spans countries, industries, and currencies. We look at three stocks from different sectors with promising return potential.

A few weeks ago, Federal Economy Minister Habeck and Saxony-Anhalt Prime Minister Haseloff broke ground for the "SuedOstLink" converter. From 2027, wind energy will flow over the route to Bavaria for the first time. But the north-south connection is only part of the solution. Experts are sounding the alarm and consider massive investments in "the last mile" to be necessary. We take a look at what lies ahead and which companies could benefit.

With a weaker-than-expected fall in inflation worldwide, plus a war in Ukraine that continues to escalate, the general conditions point to a long-term rise in the gold price above its all-time high reached weeks ago. With a threatened default in the United States, another argument for a gold bull market could now be added. Be prepared.

Plug Power, Canadian North Resources, RWE - Critical metals as a sticking point

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies

The dream of a climate-neutral world still exists, at least in the minds of politicians. Thus, many companies that took on the transformation of the transport and energy sectors were also given plenty of advance praise. However, there are still problems with the implementation and the leap into the profit zone. One reason for the weakening margins is the raw materials needed for the energy transition, which are still at high levels. However, due to the scarcity of many critical metals, a reduction in base prices is likely to remain a pipe dream.

Mercedes-Benz, Canadian North Resources, Varta - Shortage of battery resources

  • Mining
  • Metals
  • Commodities
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

Electromobility and the energy transition are essential to creating a more sustainable future. However, we need raw materials such as copper, nickel, cobalt and lithium to achieve these goals. These resources are an obstacle for many companies. Therefore, car companies are trying to secure access to these scarce resources to secure supplies for their production. In some cases, they are even developing their own batteries. The best example is Volkswagen, which wants to build 6 battery factories in Europe. So today, we look at Mercedes-Benz, analyze a possible supplier with Canadian North Resources and conclude with Varta, Germany's largest battery manufacturer.

The growth rates of electric car companies continue to be enormous, as the recently published sales figures of the Chinese market leader BYD show. The trend will likely continue at least until the end of this decade. According to a forecast by Statista, there will be 116 million electric vehicles worldwide in 2030, representing an increase of 1,800% since 2020. However, the transformation of the transport sector is causing an enormous demand for industrial metals. For some critical raw materials, demand is already outstripping supply.

It continues to be uncertain times for Amazon employees. CEO Andy Jassy is cutting around 9,000 jobs in the group to keep the numbers stable. Tech rival Alphabet, on the other hand, can rejoice: for the first time, its cloud business is posting an operating profit, prompting the management team to buy back shares. The mining business is somewhat more consistent. Globex Mining has two pieces of good news for gold investors.
