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

  • Investments

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.

Varta, Sierra Growth, CureVac - Clear signals!

  • Investments

Sometimes, for various reasons, it takes longer before the positive developments of a Company are absorbed by the market and thus provide for price gains. It is currently similar to the precious metal gold, which is still in the consolidation phase. The facts such as national debt, inflation fears and the ultra-loose monetary policy of the central banks speak another clear language.

Shortly before the finish line, the going gets tough again. Many athletes and those who have to really "bite" in the last few meters before a deadline are probably familiar with this feeling. Everyday life in the Corona pandemic is also becoming more exhausting. Now, with BioNTech's announcement that it will double weekly vaccine dose deliveries to around 5.1 million units from the end of May, there may be a breakthrough in achieving herd immunity in Germany in the next few months. It is not only good news for the Company's shareholders but everyone. Below we present two other companies whose shareholders should be very pleased. Let us surprise you!

The German vaccination disaster is going into the next round. After the AstraZeneca vaccine's back and forth and the question of whether only younger people, older people or no one should be vaccinated with the vaccine, the American vaccine manufacturer Johnson & Johnson is now experiencing delivery stoppages. The return to "normality" once again seems to be a long way off. Another question to ask yourself. What will future life in the new normal look like in the hard-pressed inner cities?
