First Hydrogen, Delivery Hero, Porsche - New markets, new challenges, and optimistic analysts

  • Hydrogen
  • Fuelcells
  • Electromobility
  • renewableenergies
  • Retail

The markets are on the move. Delivery Hero is charging its B2B customers in South Korea to pay more to cushion a potential fine of three million euros. While food is delivered by bicycle in urban areas, there are numerous delivery services that deliver goods to their customers by van. Whether Amazon, Hermes, or DHL, innovations are urgently needed here, as purely electric vehicles can usually only handle short distances. First Hydrogen could be the answer. The Company is developing emission-free vehicles for logistics that can cover 630 km on a single fuel tank. First Hydrogen is thus positioning itself as an innovative player in the still-young hydrogen market. Porsche, on the other hand, is struggling with declining sales figures, particularly in China. However, analysts remain optimistic, thanks to a positive margin trend and another decisive factor.

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Electromobility
  • Retail

The global economy is facing a variety of challenges and opportunities. While vehicle manufacturers such as Mercedes are adapting their strategies, new opportunities are opening up in other sectors. Mercedes is expanding the combustion engine range of its S-Class and offering models with both a petrol engine and an electric battery. The German Association of the Automotive Industry is concerned about the EU's punitive tariffs on Chinese electric vehicle imports. It predicts that the impending trade conflict will intensify, particularly with regard to rare earth metals. In these uncertain times, it is all the more important to add some gold to the portfolio as a hedge. One candidate with high growth potential is the exploration company Desert Gold, which is investigating an outstanding area with over 1 million ounces of gold resources in Mali, Africa. Those who prefer data to new gold will be pleased with Amazon's latest strategic move. The Seattle-based company has not only brought on board a smart AI leader but also the entire team along with AI. Where is an investment worthwhile?

The European Green Deal is a comprehensive initiative of the European Union to tackle the challenges of climate change and promote a sustainable economy. The key elements include reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, promoting clean mobility and the circular economy, and preserving biodiversity. The green parties have lost around 20 seats in the European Parliament. What is the general situation regarding sustainability efforts to reduce CO₂ emissions? Carbon Done Right is a Canadian company that trades its own CO₂ emission certificates through reforestation and afforestation to facilitate barter deals with major players like Microsoft and Tesla. They offer satellite monitoring of tradeable areas via a dashboard for all participants. Amazon is also entering the agricultural market. In Southeast Asia, the IT company Axons uses AWS technology to improve local food cultivation. BASF, a well-known conglomerate and chemical giant, is now researching an active ingredient obtained from natural mammalian bacteria capable of producing low-CO₂ substances for the chemical industry.

TUI, Desert Gold, Steinhoff - Cheap Shares, bargain hunters watch out

  • Gold
  • Tourism
  • Retail

Today, we look at three companies whose share prices appear cheap at first glance and then analyze which candidates have potential. An affordable stock is not necessarily cheap, just as an expensive stock is not automatically expensive. The problem with many retail investors is that they do not have the money to buy a few Amazon shares. Therefore, smaller stocks are more likely to be found, especially in smaller portfolios. One should look at the market sentiment of a company and its fundamentals to avoid betting on the wrong horse if possible.

  • Retail

The vaccination strategy is delayed again because the AstraZeneca active ingredient has once again come under the spotlight of the experts at the Paul Ehrlich Institute. If blood clotting disorders are detected, this could cause the German vaccination strategy to fall even further behind. Currently, just 7.9% of Germans have been vaccinated once, and only around 3% of the population have complete protection. The German retail and tourism industry hopes lie in a rapid, widespread vaccination to bring economic life back to normal. We take a look at some of the protagonists.
