Even though the German benchmark index took it easy in the last trading days of the year, there have been some sharp fluctuations in recent months. We look at three stocks that have seen a lot of movement in these last months. Trend reversal or trend continuation? That is the crucial question.

    TeamViewer - Share price crash in 2021 and little hope for a quick recovery

    In 2019, TeamViewer went public and appeared to be a flawless Corona profiteer in 2020. The Company's proprietary software, which provides access to PCs worldwide, was a smash hit. Since its founding in 2005, the Goeppingen-based Company has focused on cloud-based technologies that enable users to collaborate online and provide remote support globally. These range from remote support of customers or employees to location-independent control, monitoring and managing equipment or complex machines and instruments to workflows supported by augmented reality. In total, the software has been installed on more than 2.5 billion devices worldwide.

    But in 2021 came the rude awakening. The share price plunged by more than 70% since the beginning of the year. What had happened? TeamViewer caused great displeasure among investors by signing costly marketing agreements. In particular, this concerns the advertising contract with Manchester United, which will cost the Goeppingen-based Company around EUR 46 million per year, or almost 10% of its sales, over the next few years. Due to slower growth in 2021, the group had to lower its forecast twice, and the CFO had to resign. The contract with CEO Oliver Steil, on the other hand, was extended early until 2024. One thing is sure: TeamViewer has lost a great deal of trust. The depressed share price could now turn the Company into a potential takeover candidate.

    wallstreet:online - Set for growth

    The Berlin-based Company operates the four high-reach stock market portals,,, and In the first half of the year, monthly page impressions averaged around 376 million, making the Company the largest publisher-independent financial portal operator in the German-speaking world.

    Much more important for future development, however, is the transaction business. Since the launch of the neobroker Smartbroker 2 years ago, dynamic customer growth has been recorded. At the end of the first half of the year, 187,000 securities accounts were counted, of which more than 142,000 were with Smartbroker. Smartbroker differentiates itself in relation to the broad field of the neobroker, which offers investors a free share trade by offering low conditions and a broad product spectrum. The central task now is to better integrate the financial offers of the Smartbroker into the stock market portals and thus leverage synergies and accelerate growth.

    To drive the expansion dynamically, the Berliners have recently carried out a capital increase at their subsidiary and at the same time operator of the Smartbroker, wallstreet:online capital AG, amounting to approximately EUR 8 million. As a result, the Berliners now hold more than 95% of the operating Company. According to statements by the Management Board, the parent company intends to pay off the minority shareholders in the first quarter of 2022 as part of a squeeze-out.

    For the current financial year, the Berlin-based Company is forecasting an increase in revenue to around EUR 45 to 50 million and an increase in the operating result (EBITDA) to EUR 4 to 6 million. Exceeding the EUR 10 billion threshold in assets under management was recently promised for the beginning of 2022. With a price target of EUR 37.70, the analysts at GBC confirm an upside potential of around 75% for the stock.

    Steinhoff - Multiplier

    The stock of the troubled retailer has multiplied in 2021. The integrated retailer, which sells, sources and manufactures household goods and general merchandise, focusing on price-conscious consumer segments, was hit by an accounting scandal in 2017.

    In the wake of the increasing likelihood of satisfying the last of the plaintiffs, the shares recently made significant gains, even if there was then profit-taking again. A settlement could be imminent. The Western Cape High Court will hear arguments in favor of accepting the main settlement on January 24.

    There was a lot of movement on the stock markets in 2021. Whether the crash of a briefly celebrated stock market darling, TeamViewer, or new glimmers of hope at ailing Steinhoff - the capital market is multi-faceted. Company valuation and growth prospects speak clearly in favor of the wallstreet:online share. GBC analysts believe that the shares have an upside potential of around 75%.

    Attention, turnaround! Lufthansa, TUI, Desert Gold, Deutsche Bank: These stocks are taking off again!

    • Gold
    • Tourism
    • Investments

    From several perspectives, the ongoing crisis is a mammoth task for asset managers and private investors. First, after the long uptrend and the absolute boom valuation of growth stocks from 2015 to 2022, no one knows when a sufficiently high discount has been reached to re-enter. Some stocks, such as Plug Power, are very forward-looking and dependent on government contracts. Here there have already been sales valuations of a factor of 200. So is a P/S ratio of currently 12 after an almost 80% share price loss cheap or still hopelessly overpriced? We do not know because the ongoing war sets new market parameters daily. The major indices will therefore continue to search for a valuation basis in a very volatile manner. We pick out a few selected opportunities.

    Buy or sell? Nel, Zalando, Aspermont under analyst review

    • Commodities
    • Investments
    • Hydrogen
    • Mining

    After the heavy losses of the past months, a countermovement seems to be starting at the moment. Whether this will turn into a real summer rally remains to be seen. Buy or sell is the question. Analysts see a price potential of over 50% for Nel ASA. Even though competition from China and India is increasing. Aspermont also appears attractive at the current price level. The latest quarterly figures were positive, and the positioning of the small-cap in the booming commodities sector is promising. At Zalando, analysts react to the profit warning, and the price targets are significantly reduced. Nevertheless, some advise buying the online fashion retailer, but not everyone.

    TUI, Pathfinder Ventures, Lufthansa - The travel market is back - where are the share prices?

    • travel
    • Investments
    • Camping

    The travel market has changed dramatically since 2019 in light of the Corona pandemic. Due to the most extensive pandemic standstill in 2020, the capacities for flights, rail traffic and accommodation were adjusted downwards dramatically. Major cost reductions occurred primarily through de-occupancy and staff reductions. Travel companies cut their basic capacity utilization with partners to such an extent that many smaller operations had to pull out of the race, and large corporations could only survive with extensive state aid. Now, however, the situation has turned 180 degrees and demand for travel is exploding. However, this time it seems difficult to ramp up the reduced capacities in line with demand. We look at the opportunities of three typical industry players.
