When news moves prices, chart analyses and analysts' assessments are invalidated in one fell swoop. Today, momentum is building for the hydrogen stock dynaCERT. The reason: The Company, together with its new distribution partner, has announced deliveries to renowned mining groups. Among them are Vale, Nexa Resources and Antamina, one of the ten largest mining companies in the world. Is this a breakthrough for HydraGEN™ technology? We shed light on the exciting situation surrounding dynaCERT and also use the examples of MorphoSys and Varta to explain how investors can react when everything suddenly changes.

    dynaCERT with sales breakthrough

    dynaCERT's HydraGEN™ technology is the Canadian company's core product: over CAD 60 million has been invested in HydraGEN™. Now it seems that the Company may finally reap the rewards of its efforts. Together with trading partner H2 Tek LP, the Company has succeeded in equipping several mining companies with HydraGEN™ systems, including the HG1, HG2 and HG6C systems. They are used either in trucks, large overburden transporters or diesel generators and help companies reduce their environmental footprint. The list of companies that have purchased between one and ten systems each reads extremely prominently: Vale is an international mining company with a focus on nickel, Nexa Resources is synonymous with the production of zinc, Codelco mines copper in Chile, and Arauco is believed to be the first forestry company in the world to certify its carbon neutrality. Other customers in the recently disclosed deal include Peru's largest producer of copper concentrate, Antamina , and Sigma Alimentos, a food packaging manufacturer from Mexico.

    As reported by dynaCERT, the HydraGEN™ HG4C and HG6C variants in particular have received a lot of input from potential mining customers over the past two years. "The HG4C and HG6C systems were developed to meet increasing demand as well as demand for improved fuel efficiency along with significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from resource companies and to obtain future emissions allowances in the mining, forestry, and oil and gas industries, among others," according to the dynaCERT announcement. The latest announcement gives dynaCERT a foot in the door with several major mining companies at once. "Our products help users operate sustainably and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale. H2 Tek customers are to be commended for their foresight and commitment to making a corresponding contribution to a greener planet by reducing their emissions," commented Ed Cordeiro, director of sales at dynaCERT, on the deal.

    When business relationships with mining giants meet an oversold stock

    The stock of dynaCERT is market-wise in a promising starting position. Over the past few months, more and more investors had lost confidence in the share. With the delivery of HydraGEN™ units to several world-class companies at once, dynaCERT is proving many things: the technology is in demand in the target group, and concrete use cases exist. The Company announcement can also be considered a successful litmus test for the sales partnership with H2 Tek. The share has lost around 54% over the past three years; last year alone, it fell by more than 20%. If further steps towards market maturity follow, share prices at the current level should soon be history!

    Morphosys? To be forgotten!

    For the share of the biotech company Morphosys, prices from last week may already feel as if they were set in a different time. Why? Morphosys, along with partner Roche, reported weak clinical results for its Alzheimer's drug Gantenerumab. Although the drug was able to curb the loss of memory, for example, the results were not statistically significant. In other words, efficacy could not be proven. An approval of the once hopeful drug is becoming a distant prospect. Investors should deal constructively with the new situation and put last week's price level out of their minds. A technical recovery is likely to make up for half of the crash at most - and that only temporarily. Morphosys now needs to get back to basics. The share has lost its fantasy. Hoping and waiting are by no means advisable for investors.

    Varta: Consolidation completed, but...

    A new era also dawned on battery manufacturer Varta a few months ago. A profit warning, a change in the top management and the sluggish development of the e-car business beat the price down.

    The share is now trading at its low for the year. Recently, Varta announced new forecasts for the current and the coming fiscal year , which can be subsumed under the heading "healthy shrinkage". The share price is not affected by the news. That is because the value has already lost significantly. If Varta succeeds in developing imagination beyond the new guidance, the share price may also rebound.

    That there are operational delays is nothing new, especially with future technology, best examples are Varta and also dynaCERT. The latter company seems to be on the verge of a breakthrough, at least in operational terms: It supplies several renowned mining companies and seems to be finally (sustainably) getting its horsepower on the road. At Varta, such a success story is still pending. At Morphosys, the first thing to do is to consolidate the operating business and the share. **Of all three stocks, dynaCERT is by far the most exciting!

    Desert Gold Ventures, Amazon, Volkswagen - Commodities in hot demand, while big tech and Automotive in a nosedive

    The new stock market year is starting with a strong pole position for commodities and companies like Desert Gold Ventures, which is looking for gold in Mali. Mali is the third-largest gold-producing country in the world. Desert Gold Ventures' 'SMSZ Project' already surrounds 6 active gold mines, and drilling for 2023 is secured. Things remain shaky for big tech companies like Amazon and automotive like Volkswagen. Can the past Christmas sales bring Amazon's once largest pillar back into the black? Will the Wolfsburg-based company recapture its market power through restructuring in procurement?

    Chip industry booming: What are Mercedes partners BrainChip, Nvidia and Infineon doing?

    • Automotive
    • Chip industry

    Chip stocks are having a hard time at the moment, although the market is undersupplied and will probably remain so for some time. This was also highlighted by figures from semiconductor equipment supplier ASML. Orders at the world's largest supplier of lithography systems to semiconductor manufacturers were around EUR 7 billion in the first three months of 2022, well above market expectations. In addition, ASML has indicated targets through 2025. The Company intends to expand production capacities in view of the high demand. Mercedes partner BrainChip should also benefit from these positive industry prospects. And, of course, industry heavyweights such as Nvidia and Infineon.

    NEL ASA, Tesla, dynaCERT: A lot is happening in the automotive sector

    • Automotive

    German premium manufacturers have sold more cars again. Strong sales in China and catch-up results have brought BMW, Audi, and Daimler rising deliveries and sales in the third quarter. However, the Mercedes brand received tailwind mainly from the domestic market. Overall, sales climbed 3.9% to 613,770 vehicles in the last three months. But, nine-month sales are still down almost 10% as a result of the First Half 2020 slump in unit sales due to the corona-related lockdown. Nevertheless, the three big players are leaving the deep corona hole behind for the time being, as the figures published on Wednesday and Tuesday show. Overall, BMW fared best, with the Munich-based company and its subsidiary Mini, achieving sales of 675,680 cars between July and September - an increase of 8.6% over the same period last year. The main driver was a strong business in Asia. BMW also achieved a 7.1% increase in Europe. The USA and North America, on the other hand, remained clearly in the red. It is good to hear that the bottom is likely to be in our rearview mirror!
