RWE, Saturn Oil + Gas, Shell - Accompany the energy turnaround with these shares

  • Mining
  • Oil
  • Gas
  • Energy

Temperatures are dropping in Central and Northern Europe, but investor sentiment remains heated in the ongoing debate on the energy transition. Those who want to invest in sustainable companies would do well to take a close look at which fossil and renewable energies are currently being used and are enabling companies to generate growth and profits. RWE is betting on solar in the US, Saturn Oil & Gas from Canada is ensuring an increase in fossil energies for global economic supply, and Shell is going on a buying spree for natural gas. Read the background here.

Shares: Porsche does it like Tesla - Varta is not there, and Infinity Stone Ventures?

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Batteries
  • Electromobility

E-car specialists like BYD and Tesla have had them for a long time: their own gigafactories. German automakers have long neglected their own battery production. It is surprising because, with electromobility, energy storage is becoming the heart of every car. Here in Germany, Porsche is now stepping on the gas and accelerating the development of its battery production. This could become a model for the entire VW Group. Unfortunately, German battery hopeful Varta is again not involved in the project. The Company seems to be making no headway in its search for partners. No matter who builds the batteries, companies like Infinity Stone Ventures stand to benefit. The specialist for critical raw materials is currently stepping on the gas in its projects, and the positive newsflow should continue.

Rare Earths and the China Shock: Volkswagen, Defense Metals, Freyr Battery

  • Mining
  • RareEarths
  • Electromobility
  • Batteries

Remember the Toyota Prius? According to asset manager Pictet, the hybrid car that became the vehicle of choice for supposedly sustainable-minded consumers a few years ago is the consumer product that has gobbled up the most rare earths to date. World record! But the Prius was just the beginning. Soon, all cars will be electric and thus have a battery. Will the demand for rare earths then go through the roof? Can demand still be met at all? We present three stocks related to electromobility, GreenTech and rare earths.

Plug Power, Desert Gold, BYD - Discover the opportunities

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Electromobility

"If you do not have the stocks when they fall, you do not have them when they rise." These wise words from a famous quote from stock market legend André Kostolany are little consolation to investors whose portfolios have melted considerably in recent months. In the long term, however, there are many attractive opportunities to enter strongly corrected companies at the current level. In addition to the stock market, other asset classes such as cryptocurrencies and precious metals also offer opportunities for disproportionate price gains in the future, despite the current uncertain environment.

These stocks are fighting the energy crisis: BASF, Nel ASA, JinkoSolar and Globex Mining

  • Mining
  • Commodities
  • GreenTech

The current energy crisis is a homemade problem that has been felt primarily in Europe since the start of the war. For decades, Europe has relied on raw material supplies from Russia, and now, these have been sanctioned. Although the "old continent" has already made astonishing progress in upgrading its renewable energies, there is a threat of further price increases, blackouts and even electricity rationing if gas and oil supplies fail to materialize in the coming winter. By mid-2022, there were green power yields of between 43% and 61% of grid capacity, fossil fuels now account for only 15 to 20%, and nuclear power has been contributing only about 3.5% for several years. Nevertheless, a difficult winter probably looms because the fossil component is more than uncertain. Equity investors should look closely at who can prevail in this environment.

K+S, Barsele Minerals, Barrick Gold - Are the good times coming after the bad?

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • fertilizer
  • Commodities

While the gold price is under pressure from the strong US dollar and rising interest rates, European fertilizer producers are struggling with high gas prices, representing almost 90% of variable costs in production. However, the first positive trends can be observed in both markets. In gold, the critical support level of USD 1620 has held, and there, the market bounced dynamically upwards. Fertilizer prices rose in September in almost all segments. Reason enough to take a closer look at two gold companies and the German fertilizer producer K+S.

The problem solvers: Plug Power, BioNTech, Almonty Industries

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • Hydrogen
  • Biotechnology

Rarely have there been as many global crises and challenges as there are right now. In addition to the war in Ukraine, there is Corona, an arguably inevitable recession, and the energy crisis - not to mention long-standing challenges such as the fight against cancer and climate change. Companies want to help solve these problems, and BioNTech is one of these companies. The Wiesbaden-based Company was not only successful in the fight against COVID-19. They are currently taking on cancer. And the CEO has recently been very positive. Almonty Industries wants to help reduce dependence on raw materials from China and Russia, and one Company has already given it long-term purchase guarantees. And Plug Power wants to help solve the energy crisis and fight climate change. The recent numbers have disappointed, but analysts see upside potential. We look at the current performance of the three problem solvers.

Almonty Industries, Mercedes-Benz, Amazon - Strong raw materials for profitable cloud technology

  • Mining
  • Tungsten
  • computing
  • cloud

To ensure that logistics and supply chains are better protected against failures in the future, the Mercedes-Benz Group is relying on a strong partner for the internal cloud: Microsoft. Through global networking, potential supply bottlenecks are to be identified and cushioned at an early stage. The rapidly increasing demand for semiconductor and battery technology is bringing companies like Almonty Industries into focus. In the raw materials sector, the Company has specialized in tungsten mining in geopolitically secure areas such as South Korea. The metal tungsten is a key element for the computer and automotive industry. Top dog Amazon is also increasingly relying on its cash cow AWS. While the e-commerce business is being pushed by marketing campaigns, the Group is developing smart processors for its cloud business.

Geely, Kodiak Copper, Aston Martin Lagonda - Copper with the next chance

  • Mining
  • Copper
  • Electromobility
  • climatechange

If investors had followed the sensitive early economic indicator, they would have been spared a loss of almost 25% in the DAX alone. Because already at the beginning of March, the copper price showed the first signs of fatigue after climbing to a new all-time high of USD 10,813.36 per ton. Almost half a year later, the red metal is not only trading more than 20% lower, but the recession has already arrived globally. However, despite the economic downturn, global demand for the red metal far exceeds supply. Due to the upgrading of renewable energies, the gap is likely to widen even further in the next few years, which argues for a rising base price in the long term.

BYD, Infinity Stone Ventures, Rock Tech Lithium - Electromobility with rapid growth ahead

  • Mining
  • Lithium
  • Electromobility

The IEA (International Energy Agency) has recently issued forecasts for the growth of electromobility up to 2030. While only about 10% of all vehicles were electric in 2021, this figure is expected to rise to at least 60% by 2030. That would significantly reduce emissions, but the energy transition requires raw materials from copper to cobalt to lithium, which is essential for the production of batteries for e-cars. S&P Global has calculated that even if all existing lithium projects were to go into production, there would still be a supply deficit of 220,000 to 2 million tons in 2030. Reason enough to take a closer look at three companies based on the sector.
