Crash! Which shares are attractive now - TeamViewer, Viva Gold, Infineon
The technology sector has been in a sharp correction for months. The leading technology index from the US alone, the Nasdaq-100, recorded price losses of around 34% up to its low. Since the middle of last month, a countermovement has set in. However, many companies are still at an interesting entry level. Currently, the season for the publication of the figures for the second quarter is also underway. Here it becomes clear which companies you can build on in the future or which title you should remove from your portfolio.Read

Nel, Altech Advanced Materials, Mercedes - It is getting exciting!
The challenges for the implementation of the energy turnaround are great. The desire to make greater use of renewable energy sources increased in light of the Ukraine war and the dependence on Russia that has become visible. Even after the highs of the Corona pandemic, supply chain issues and increased commodity prices continue to weigh. China's sabre-rattling illustrates that globalization not only brings benefits but also creates dependencies. In this respect, it is prudent for countries and industries to increasingly rely on national "solutions" or those that emanate from secure jurisdictions. In the megatrends of hydrogen technology and electromobility, investors should also keep an eye out for exciting companies from the second tier.Read

Is the turnaround coming for chip stocks? Intel, Nvidia, BrainChip, Aixtron and AMD
Last year, semiconductors were declared the new gold due to blown-up supply chains and the resulting shortages. After the recent boom and the build-up of overcapacity, the market could now grind to a halt by 2023 at the latest. High inflation, a global economic downturn and a possible recession in the industry could do the rest. Last week, Intel was already in the red with a slump in sales. In contrast, other companies from the chip sector could report positive surprises.Read

New opportunities at Aspermont, Palantir and Rheinmetall
After months of losses in technology stocks, there are signs of a recovery. The opportunities are lucrative in the long term. Market leaders have lost disproportionately since the beginning of the year due to fears of further interest rate hikes. The question is how far the monetary authorities will continue to turn the interest rate screw so as not to stifle economic growth altogether. If, on the other hand, the monetary policy were to become even looser again, the door would be opened to a further technology boom.Read

Nel ASA, Altech Advanced Materials, Varta - Gamechanger in the battery market?
Due to the energy transition, the transformation of transport from combustion engines to vehicles powered by electricity is underway. Globally, this is drastically increasing the demand for batteries. The battle for the best efficiency and range is in full swing, not just among electric car manufacturers. To date, the most powerful storage devices for electrical energy on an electrochemical basis have once again come from China. However, a German company is poised to become the new standard on the market by developing a new coating method.Read

High-tech bottleneck: Rheinmetall, Defense Metals, JinkoSolar, Nordex: Strategic metals are more necessary than ever!
In addition to the increased risks for the energy supply with primary energy sources, there is also a growing shortage of strategic metals in the industry. These metals are needed in almost all high-tech applications and are difficult to obtain on the world market. The problem is that the leading producer, China, could turn to Russia at any time and slam the door on the West in terms of supply. Without these metals, however, many essential components would no longer be able to be produced. Some tech stocks have already reflected the difficult procurement situation in their share prices. What are the current opportunities and risks?Read

Crash stocks: BASF, Meta Materials, Uniper, Nordex - Will there be a comeback like Tesla?
In stock market corrections that come from the interest rate and inflation side, when the relationship between inflation and capital market returns normalizes is critical. In the long NASDAQ upswing from 2019 to 2021, valuations doubled as future cash flows were extrapolated down to present value with minimal interest rates. That let potential market caps explode, and leveraged positions could also be taken at virtually no cost. Currently, the market is showing a different side. Negative real interest rates, high refinancing costs and increased margin calls are weighing on investors' minds. Some stocks experienced a real crash - will they bounce back soon like Tesla?Read

Quality is the trump card: Alphabet, MAS Gold, Amazon - Shares that always bring joy!
The capital market environment remains tense. Squeezed by historically rising inflation figures, which do not even reflect the reality at the supermarket checkout, and massively increased interest rates, the asset class equities are trying to manoeuvre through the summer. In the face of substantial price discounts on the bond market and stagnation in the real estate sector, investors are asking themselves: Where to put their money? The fact remains that the Russian conflict and the rise in the price of fossil fuels are putting the global economy under cost pressure, with a new surprise lurking almost every day as to which goods are simply out of stock or can no longer be supplied in the long term. In this mixed situation, selection is the trump card. We have a few ideas.Read

Netflix, Amazon, BrainChip - AI drives growth
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.Read

Turnaround stocks: BASF, Aspermont, TUI, Deutsche Bank - Breakout with significant momentum?
The recent bear market seems to be slowing somewhat. In addition to a good market technique, there are more and more indications that a gas delivery by Russia will likely take place after all. But one can never be sure about this topic. Too much East-West propaganda stands in the way of truthful reporting, and both sides of the conflict use every available news item for their own purposes. In any case, the stock market had to react after a strong technical oversell yesterday. It went up by 3% in just 30 minutes, led by the scolded BASF. TUI and Deutsche Bank also got some air under their wings again. Where do we go from here?Read
