More than 100% with energy storage! Varta and Plug Power curious, BYD and Power Nickel mix up the battery sector!

  • Nickel
  • renewableenergies
  • Electromobility

There you go! In the last trading week, Varta and Plug Power turned up the heat and posted a price gain of almost 20%. After a long sell-off, this is the first technical rebound of the Fallen Angels. Long-term investors are wondering if there has been a fundamental change. Momentum traders are not interested in balance sheets, because rising prices attract buyers. We look at the shaken energy storage sector. Are there arguments for a buyback?

  • 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.

After the DAX reached a new all-time high, the signs are pointing towards a correction due to the ongoing lack of agreement regarding the debt ceiling in the US. The ongoing consolidation phase offers an opportunity to further optimize one's portfolio, especially with selected individual stocks. In the area of critical raw materials for the energy turnaround, disproportionate price gains await in the long term after the price losses of the past months.

Attention in the battery sector: Varta in sellout, Mercedes, Power Nickel and IBU-tec with good prospects!

What a debacle for Varta! While many manufacturers worldwide are looking for clean battery solutions, things continue to go downhill for the company in Ellwangen. The linchpin of mobile electrification is the development of a super battery. The conventional battery market is dominated by the Chinese group CATL with a 38% share, followed by BYD. But there are also many smaller technology companies in Germany, such as Altech Advanced Materials and IBU-Tec, that are getting involved in the battery market. We go in search of sector highlights.

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.

Critical raw materials, such as lithium, rare earths and nickel, are indispensable for the desired mobility and heat transition. But which companies can secure the raw materials now in demand? And which mining regions are suitable? Recently, producing countries have become more and more self-confident - reason enough for investors to turn to safe mining regions.

Caution at Nel ASA and drumbeat at Volkswagen: Can Canadian North Resources profit?

Things are getting exciting for shareholders of Nel ASA. The hydrogen pioneer will publish its figures for the first quarter tomorrow. A current buy recommendation does not help the share price. At least the expectations for the figures are anything but high at the moment. Is there anything positive to report on the order book? Plug Power recently placed an order with a competitor. In the battery sector, Volkswagen has caused a sensation. The Wolfsburg-based company has announced its intention to build its largest battery factory to date in Canada. The Canadian government is subsidizing the project and expects thousands of new jobs at VW and its suppliers. The latter could include Canadian North Resources. The Company is currently developing a vast area and has already found copper, nickel, cobalt, platinum, and palladium there. Another drilling programme has just been launched. It is hoped that lithium will also be found.

E-cars? Yes, please! At least, that is the case for Mercedes CEO Ola Källenius. He sees his company clearly focused on the electric drive - regardless of technology openness. This seems to be paying off at Mercedes: In the first quarter, the Swabians sold almost twice as many e-cars as in the previous year. But how far can this growth go? What do the absolute figures say? We make the comparison and outline investment opportunities.

Inflation rates in the US remain high. Consumer prices rose more than expected in January. For investors, this has several meanings: On the one hand, the spectre of recession is likely to have been dispelled; on the other hand, the US Federal Reserve could continue to turn the interest rate screw. What does this mean for innovative companies involved in the mega-trend of electrification? We provide the answers!
