Uniper and Kion in shock, partial mobilization at BASF and Meta Materials

  • hightech

For the first time in recent history, an announced appearance by Putin did not take place. In the morning yesterday, the news finally rang out that Russia had been so afraid of for the past few weeks: Putin announced partial mobilization. It likely involves an additional 300,000 troops who will now go into mobilization. News about the war apparently only impacts the stock market if it also conceals economic news, because the market rose despite expected escalations. However, the consensus now seems to be that a sharp slowdown in economic growth is expected worldwide. Currently, many stocks are adjusting to a new view: interest rates are back, so capitalization models are recalculating, especially for growth stocks. Where should attention be paid now?

These days, the book The End of Capitalism by TAZ journalist Ulrike Herrmann is causing quite a stir. Its basic tenor is that the growth story is coming to an end. In order to achieve climate targets, it is now a matter of shrinking in the right way. Even if many readers might have spontaneously rolled their eyes at both the title and Ms Herrmann's employer, it is worth taking a closer look. Here is why the growth of the future offers opportunities.

Innovations are the salt in the soup of growth markets. That is why US giant Amazon is expanding its AWS business in the United Arab Emirates. The seven countries on the Gulf are self-sufficient in energy and power supply and have a vibrant startup scene. It is worth USD 5 million to the Seattle-based company. Mediatech innovator Aspermont is also interested in investments.

BYD after Buffett shock - Better to bet on JinkoSolar and Meta Materials?

So, now it is done: Star investor Warren Buffett has sold shares in the Tesla hunter, BYD. Although it is only a small part of the investment, the BYD share went down significantly. Because now, the door is open to speculation about what will happen to the legal shares - Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway still holds almost 19% of the Chinese carmaker. The convincing quarterly figures have thus receded into the background. JinkoSolar has presented mixed figures. The Company is benefiting from the skyrocketing electricity and gas prices. After all, they are driving demand for solar systems, but analysts are divided. Meta Materials' innovative functional materials are also expected to revolutionize renewable energy production in the future. For further development, the patent octopus has now strengthened itself with a veteran of the chip industry.

Apple, Tocvan Ventures, Valneva - More returns through innovation or risk hedging?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Innovations
  • Pharma

Innovations are hailed as market drivers. The more innovative a company is, the more likely it is to stay ahead of the competition. But this requires loyal customers who also support these innovations. And Apple has just such a customer base, setting a good example that loyalty must be rewarded for innovation. In contrast, pharmaceutical company Valneva has the challenge of exposure to different development cycles in the healthcare market. If only because of the duration of clinical studies, which rightly have to go well before a new product comes onto the market. This time, nature lovers could benefit. Those who find all this too volatile and unpredictable should once again turn to commodities as a hedge. With Tocvan Ventures, a candidate is in the running that looks very closely at optimizing the costs of its operations - to the benefit of investors.

Meta Materials, JinkoSolar, BioNTech - Smart technologies as growth boosters

  • Innovations

  • metamaterials

Solar and photovoltaic companies have been hot in the financial markets since the shifts in the energy market. Chinese supplier JinkoSolar, for example, is now launching solar batteries for home use. Smart buildings are an important component in urban city planning. Where there is plenty of sunshine, its energy is converted for personal use, and Australian residents are benefiting from JinkoSolar's technology. In order to increase the efficiency of such energy sources, Meta Materials offers innovative solutions that make solar systems even more cost-effective. Thanks to numerous patents, they also have a business model, which will please long-term investors in terms of growth opportunities. Rather unpleasant, however, are the measures planned by the German government for the coming fall and winter. Masks or vaccination is the calculation, which will at least bring some joy to BioNTech shareholders.

Our future is connected and increasingly interactive. Streaming providers like Netflix are personalizing content thanks to machine learning systems, but the Company is running out of users. Meanwhile, Amazon's voice assistant Alexa is up and running. At its developer conference two days ago, Ambience Intelligence announced for the first time that Alexa would take over digital assists in the smart connected home in the future. In order for Alexa to become an independent learning entity in the first place, companies like BrainChip are creating just the right human-machine interface technologies. And smart home is just a small part of the huge AI growth market with smart neuromorphic chip technologies.

Chip shares turn - Infineon, Nvidia and BrainChip in the next upward wave

  • AI

  • Innovations

Despite the chip shortage that has persisted since last year and the associated booming business of manufacturers, they came under a lot of pressure on the stock market in recent weeks in the wake of the weak overall market. The prospects for the industry remain positive, the semiconductor shortage will continue until at least 2023, and the order books of the producers are full to bursting. Now, many companies are starting to bottom out. In the long term, Nvidia and AMD are likely to be quoted significantly higher. A newcomer is also making a run for the top again after a lengthy correction phase.

Infineon, BrainChip, Daimler, Volkswagen - High-tech stocks at their best!

  • Electromobility

The global automotive business is operating according to new laws. That is because e-mobility is a done deal, and if politicians' pronouncements are anything to go by, combustion engines will be history from 2030. As a result, the prerequisites for the industry are also changing because intelligent and powerful chips remain the basis for the further development of future mobility. Supply chains and Chinese reliability are still a problem, and high raw material prices will not make the new vehicles any cheaper. Innovations could be an effective means of combating the erosion of margins. Who is ahead in the market of high-tech players?
