BYD, Meta Materials, Salzgitter AG - Unabated rise
Inflation is rising relentlessly and is likely to last far longer than predicted by the monetary authorities at the beginning of the year. The Russian war of aggression in Ukraine and the resulting sanctions have caused extreme price increases for energy and raw materials. Trade flows and supply chain relationships have also been severely impaired. Uncertainty about further economic developments remains high, but the price increases due to the escalation of the Russia-Ukraine conflict are only partially reflected in the inflation rate to date. As a result, the industry can expect higher costs in the coming months. By contrast, producers of various materials are benefiting.Read

Stocks that change the world: TeamViewer, Perimeter Medical, Nordex
When new technology meets the right opportunity, things can go up quickly for companies. One example is the German company TeamViewer, which already had an established remote desktop solution that many users had heard of when the pandemic broke out. When we moved to the home office overnight but had to use software from the office, it made sense to install TeamViewer. Innovative solutions are also meeting with great demand in other industries. We analyze what this means for investors.Read

Meta Materials, Varta, Samsung SDI - This is the future!
Despite all international upheavals, the energy and climate turnaround remains one of the dominant issues of our time. For the moment, the race between hydrogen-based and battery-electric propulsion seems to have been decided. Tesla, Polestar, Lucid - at least in private transport, battery technology has currently prevailed. The crux of the matter remains the range, which is determined by the capacity of the electricity storage units. But energy generation also remains exciting in the course of the energy transition. So-called metamaterials, which redirect light and heat, can decisively improve our power generation.Read

The China stock rally - Alibaba, Hong Lai Huat, Tencent, Baidu: Buy or Sell?
What a rebound! For months, SEC threats pounded the Chinese ADRs on the NASDAQ. Lack of transparency, arbitrary government intervention and flawed accounting could negatively impact US investment goals. With her investment firm ARK, Cathie Wood was an early responder, blowing the whistle on Chinese tech stocks as early as mid-2021, but even her ARK Innovation ETF is down over 50% from the high. However, the Alibaba share took the cake, plummeting a full 75% from its high by mid-March 2022. In the aftermath of the sell-off, the Hang Seng Index made its most significant positive daily jump in 15 years, gaining 11% at its peak. Is this the turnaround now? We take a closer look.Read

Memiontec, China Water Affairs Group, Nestlé - Shares around water
Cold clear water, freshly treated for drinking, is a luxury that is not the order of the day in Asian countries. Therefore, water treatment plants and innovative water filtration systems are vital for the country and its people. A look into three stocks around water supply in Singapore, Indonesia, China, and worldwide helps make smart investment decisions. Because without water, no economy can produce. Without water supplies, supply shortages occur in cities. And when unfiltered drinking water carries pathogens, it kills entire generations. These companies provide water, both in the supply and in the transfer.Read

Nel, Hensoldt, Perimeter Medical: Hype share or sustainably attractive?
Since Russia's attack on Ukraine, the world has turned upside down. Also, the stock market. The volatility is extreme, as is the uncertainty of many investors. It is worth taking a look at companies in sectors with good long-term prospects. More than ever, these include renewable energies and, as of almost two weeks ago, "unfortunately" also the defense industry. Hydrogen is a key technology, and Nel ASA is a specialist in this field. However, insider sales are causing uncertainty. The same happened at Hensoldt after a major shareholder cashed in - but only for a short time. Medical technology is on the sidelines these days, although companies like Perimeter are working on life-saving technologies.Read

Rheinmetall, Altech Advanced Materials, Varta, Standard Lithium - Who can deliver?
Oil, gas, steel, and wheat - these are the goods that are becoming extremely scarce due to the Ukraine crisis. Scarce in the sense of expensive. Because, in the case of oil, OPEC does not yet want to adjust its production quotas. After all, they are currently earning splendidly with prices of up to USD 135 for Brent. Russia and Ukraine are important producers of steel and wheat, in addition to their 11% market share in oil and gas production. Steel is likely to be real short supply, as the start-up of several idle blast furnaces will take the West some time. And as for wheat, the futures market tells us it is up 46% this year. So it is clear the commodity rally and supply chain theme continues. Which companies should we be paying attention to?Read

Palantir, Perimeter Medical Imaging AI, Steinhoff - The scenario of the future
Robots and algorithms are increasingly taking over work currently still done by humans. The Internet of Things, digitalization and artificial intelligence are topics we are increasingly coming into contact with. The possibilities in a digitally networked world are almost unlimited, which applies across all sectors. In medicine, artificial intelligence can be an essential decision-making aid for doctors. But it is also assuming an increasingly important position in the military sector, as was demonstrated during the recent Munich Security Conference.Read

Deutsche Bank, Mercedes-Benz, Memiontec: Investors take action
Tech is out. In uncertain times, investors turn to conservative stocks. This is the case at present. The environment is characterized by the Ukraine crisis, high inflation and rising interest rates. Numerous high-flyers from the technology sector have been brought back down to earth. At the same time, conservative shares from the financial sector, for example, are making a comeback. Deutsche Bank is one of them. The share has made significant gains in recent weeks. The same applies to the shares of Mercedes-Benz, where analysts see further room for improvement. In addition, the automotive sector is benefiting from a failed emergency motion by the Green Party. In recent weeks, water treatment specialist Memiontec has also held up well, and investors speculate on an upward breakout.Read

Plus 300% in 3 months - what is next? Infineon, BYD, BrainChip
According to an analysis by Goldman Sachs, 169 high-tech industries are affected by the global chip shortage. The lack of microprocessors has not only hit the automotive industry hard. Nothing works without chips, whether smartphones, WLAN routers, wind turbines, or medical equipment. Experts do not yet see a turnaround because the problems contributing to the crisis persist. Which tech stocks should be on the buy list now?Read
