Royal Helium, Infineon, Boeing - Helium: The rise to a High-Tech commodity

  • Helium
  • hightech
  • Technology

Helium, a lightweight, non-flammable and colourless gas often associated with party balloons, plays a far more significant role in the high-tech industry. From semiconductor production to nuclear magnetic resonance imaging to space travel, helium is an indispensable element that enables a wide range of high-tech applications. However, although demand for this precious gas continues to rise, its long-term availability is becoming increasingly problematic. In this article, we examine how this unassuming gas powers the modern high-tech industry and how you can benefit from it.

Combustion engine versus battery! BYD, Altech Advanced Materials, Mercedes and VW in focus

  • Technology
  • hightech
  • Electromobility

The year 2024 is going like clockwork for the high-tech sector so far. Anything smelling of "Artificial Intelligence" is being valued significantly higher on the stock market with relatively little scrutiny. In the DAX 40 Index, this has notably affected Siemens and SAP and the topic of armaments, which in turn catapulted Airbus and Rheinmetall into new realms. Things are even more dynamic on the Nasdaq, where Microsoft and Nvidia, in particular, are causing a sensation. However, e-mobility, particularly favoured by the Berlin traffic light coalition, is stumbling due to the abolition of the environmental bonus in December 2023. Customers are again opting for domestic combustion engines and Chinese e-imports. We analyze the current opportunities for investors.

Anyone browsing through product descriptions on the Amazon platform in search of the best tool will soon be able to look forward to a new lease of life thanks to artificial intelligence. Amazon is currently testing chats with regenerative AI that answer product-related questions. This requires chip manufacturers such as AMD, which - freshly presented at the CES a few days ago - are now competing with Nvidia's AI GPUs. The increasing demand and growing acceptance of AI is putting commodity exploration companies such as Globex Mining on the radar of investors. Both e-commerce and AI platforms work with rare earths, precious metals and other valuable raw materials, processed in the latest cloud technology and their data centers. Find out where an investment can be worthwhile here.

K+S, First Phosphate, Volkswagen - Phosphate: From fertilizer to high-tech application

  • Mining
  • phosphate
  • Electromobility
  • fertilizer
  • hightech

Phosphate is an important nutrient for plants and animals and is used in agriculture as a fertilizer. It is also used in the food industry as an additive. Recently, however, the raw material has been needed in the high-tech environment. Battery manufacturers have an increased need for phosphate to produce lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are already used in some electric vehicles. The phosphate content in these batteries contributes to their stability and durability. If this technology becomes standard in all electric vehicles, demand will increase dramatically. So today, we take a look at fertilizer producer K+S, introduce a future producer in First Phosphate, and look at how Volkswagen is progressing in the area of electromobility.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has concluded her four-day trip to China. The conclusion of the visit is quite positive on both sides, even if Yellen openly admits differences between the two world powers. Relations between Washington and Beijing have deteriorated significantly in recent years over trade and human rights issues, dealings with Taiwan, and a host of other issues. However, the supply situation of strategic raw materials remains an important issue. We examine buying opportunities in the high-tech sector.

Billions with Artificial Intelligence? Nvidia, Grid Metals, Deutsche Telekom, Apple - Short sellers spotted!

  • Metals

The stock market is not a one-way street. Some investors have recently experienced this firsthand. Because in the "ups and downs" of sentiment, new trends are constantly emerging. The biotech sector, for example, has been falling for more than a year, and the charts keep reaching new lows. In 2020, cannabis stocks made a splash, with the related index, POT, increasing tenfold since 2018 to about 1100 points. However, yesterday it reached a new all-time low with 45.5 points or a 95% loss. Currently, investors are trying to ride the wave of "Artificial Intelligence" (AI), with stocks like C3.ai, Nvidia, Microsoft, and Palantir all performing well in 2023. A new megatrend is underway here that, according to experts, will continue for several years. How long this boom will yield returns is unknown, but these stocks are currently performing strongly.

Star Navigation Systems, AMD, Freyr Battery: Where high-tech stocks are shaping the future

This week, there was unrest over the Russian presidential palace in Moscow as two drones reportedly violated the airspace. This makes the monitoring and optimization of airspace even more critical. High-tech companies such as Star Navigation Systems are taking action precisely where Moscow seems to be cutting corners a little too much. Thanks to modern technology, real-time data can be analyzed, and responses can be made accordingly. High-tech also requires the necessary chip and cloud technologies. Investors were thus able to follow AMD's first results this year with excitement. Are they really ahead of their competitor NVIDIA? The latter company finds its use in the new partnership between FREYR Battery and Siemens.

Is e-mobility a done deal? Watch out for these hydrogen stocks: Plug Power, dynaCERT, Nel ASA and ThyssenKrupp

High prices, falling subsidies and a still inadequate charging network - Germans are losing their appetite for e-cars again. Sales since the beginning of the year have fallen short of expectations. In Berlin, the first liberal resistance to the EU's intentions to remove the internal combustion car from the roads is becoming apparent. For the final vote in the EU parliament, the FDP calls for the approval of synthetic fuels, which are produced under strict CO2 neutrality. Worldwide, the EU seems to be alone with its ban on internal combustion engines. Only California is planning similar legislation. What about the green alternative, hydrogen?

Are shares related to electromobility among the price rockets of 2023? In any case, the start of the year was promising. After a partially disastrous second half of 2022, many stocks are showing strength in the new year. Lithium shares, in particular, are in demand again. Among the high flyers of recent months is American Lithium. After the Nasdaq listing and the planned spin-off of the uranium division, investors are eagerly awaiting the feasibility study. Will the share price fireworks continue? Analysts also expect such fireworks at Auxico Resources. They believe that the share price of the trader of rare earths and critical raw materials could almost triple. Hydrogen pioneer Plug Power has also bounced back in the new year. But once again, the US company has disappointed operationally. How do investors react?

Tungsten is a rare and valuable metal with a high melting point, hardness, corrosion resistance and good electrical and thermal conductivity. It is widely used in industry, national defence and high-tech applications. An important use of tungsten is in alloys, especially steel, where it increases the melting point, hardness and wear resistance. Now applications could be expanded even further. Researchers have developed a cathode material made from a molybdenum tungsten niobate alloy that can be used to charge electric cars in minutes.
