TeamViewer, Dermapharm, Q&M Dental Group: Deciding tomorrow's profits!

When it became apparent in March that millions of employees would suddenly be working from home offices, the market initially focused on the obvious solutions. TeamViewer is a software that many users were already familiar with at the time, allowing them to access PCs remotely. Particularly for people who had previously worked exclusively in the office, the software, some of which was free, was a good solution. But the world keeps turning. In the meantime, many companies have made the switch, offering their employees VPN access to the company network or using other cloud solutions. It is also likely that one or two mobile devices have been distributed to employees in recent months, at least according to sales in the hardware sector.

TeamViewer: What will become of the lockdown stock of the first hour?

Consequently, the initial euphoria surrounding TeamViewer has quickly subsided. On a one-year view, however, a share price gain of around 34% remains. Most recently, the market has focused more and more on the competition: In addition to all the large tech companies, smaller companies from all over the world are also looking to TeamViewer's market share. To survive in such a situation can be difficult. The Company is represented worldwide and has invested heavily in sales.

It is even represented in India, China and Singapore. In the USA, the Company also wants to target customers and win them over to its subscription model. Since peaking at more than EUR 35 in the summer, the share price has fallen and is in a negative trend. Given the general market environment, the share is no longer likely to be engaging in the weeks ahead - even despite the new lockdown.

Dermapharm as a long-term beneficiary?

Dermapharm's share price has risen by 37% in the past twelve months. However, there was little sign of this recently - the value consolidated somewhat. The share had become known to more and more investors in recent months because Dermapharm cooperates with BioNTech and makes capacities available to the vaccine manufacturer. Dermapharm specializes in vitamins, enzymes and other products. Among other things, the Munich suburbanites extract active ingredients from plants and are also involved in the field of cannabis products.

In the wake of the pandemic and increased awareness of issues such as health and the immune system, Companies like Dermapharm could benefit in the long term. Most recently, the Company raised its forecast, expecting up to 15% more sales in 2020. As a result, the Company also increased its dividend and offers about a 2% dividend yield. Since Dermapharm's stock market debut in 2018, the value has climbed continuously. Even the crisis only caused short-term uncertainty. In the long term, the title appears promising.

Q&M Dental Group: clinic chain with Covid-19 boost

A Company that is still largely unknown in Germany is the Q&M Dental Group. Q&M owns eighty medical facilities in Singapore, including mainly dental clinics, making it the island's largest private provider. When demand for dental treatment collapsed at short notice in the wake of the first wave of the pandemic, Q&M Dental reacted immediately and relied on a sophisticated testing strategy.

In April, the Company acquired a stake in the medical technology Company Acumen Diagnostics. Among other things, this Company manufactures test kits for Covid-19 and has also been supplying Q&M since then. As a positive side effect, the increased demand for tests is making a positive contribution to Q&M's figures. However, the Company emphasizes that the traditional medical treatment business remains the Company's mainstay and is expected to account for 90% of sales.

Q&M as a bet on the rise of the Asian middle class

Analysts at KGI, an Asian analyst firm, see a potential upside of SGD 0.54 for the stock, or about twenty percent more than the current price of SGD 0.47. As a comprehensive testing strategy is expected to be important even despite vaccines, Q&M's business could benefit from its stake in Acumen into 2022, they said. In its core business, the Company plans to expand into other regions of Asia, allowing Q&M to benefit from the growing prosperity in Asia. The middle class, in particular, is developing dynamically there and is increasingly demanding medical and aesthetic services in addition to consumer goods.

When an unpredictable event occurs, humanity sees how powerless it is in the face of it. We saw this in the spring of last year with the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. Only since the approval of various vaccines has a normalization taken place. However, further, foreseeable problems are coming our way. According to expert forecasts, water demand will exceed supply by 40% as early as 2030. Some companies sense an opportunity to profit from the water shortage through novel technologies.

The markets are highly nervous at the moment. First, the Corona numbers went up again, then the Chinese real estate giant Evergrande was on the verge of collapse, and the supply chains are still not back in step. The result was falling indexes. That automatically leads to more fear, as the Fear and Greed Index also showed. Last week, the market calmed down slightly, and the fear index dropped from 27 to 34 points. In Germany, there is also the fact that more people have dabbled in equity investments due to a lack of interest rates. According to the Global Wealth Report, the purchase of securities grew by 65%. Many of the newly added shareholders know only rising stock markets. Consolidation would not hurt the market. On the other hand, there is hardly any alternative to investing money at the moment. It remains exciting.
