Varta, Saturn Oil & Gas, Plug Power - something for everyone's taste

  • Mobility

"Tastes are different" - this applies to many areas of life. In terms of money and investments, there is a huge range of investment methods and strategies. Shares, which climb new highs, provide buy signals in the chart technique and make further rising prices likely. Then there is the broad mass of securities, which must consolidate and again by good enterprise developments be kissed awake and then again to the climbing of new all time highs start. Here are three stocks for all tastes.

time to read: 2 minutes by Carsten Mainitz


VARTA AG - New all-time high

Battery manufacturer Varta benefits from the demand from the electric car industry and other sectors. It was only in mid-August that the Baden-Württemberg showcase company from Ellwangen raised its outlook for the current fiscal year when it published its half-year figures.

The share has marked a new all-time high in recent days. In terms of charts, the way is now clear for the share price to rise. The recent insider sales by a Supervisory Board member do not seem to be perceived by market participants as a negative signal. After all, these are shares from an employee stock option program that was part of the IPO.

Varta went public in mid-October 2017 at a price of EUR 17.50. And as is well known, nobody has ever died from profit-taking.

Plug Power Inc - Recipe available for further rising prices

Plug Power develops and manufactures fuel cells for applications in electric mobility, the operation of industrial trucks and stationary use in emergency power systems.

The U.S. company, which has industry giants such as Amazon and Walmart as customers, has the claim as innovation leader to shape the paradigm shift towards more sustainability. Plug Power has an impressive track record as the largest consumer of liquid hydrogen after 20 years on the market, and the company has built more hydrogen filling stations than any other company in the world.

The fact that investors have great confidence in the company can be seen from its share price performance, which shows a quadrupling of the share price since the beginning of the year. Analysts nevertheless see further share price potential.

Saturn Oil & Gas Inc. - anti-cyclical investment with ESG expertise - when will the acquisition come?

The Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas is trading at EUR 0.07, well below the EUR 0.19 paid for the share around 2 years ago. However, the depressed oil price level can only serve as a superficial explanation. Finally the company with extremely low production costs of CAD 13.32 per barrel oil is cost leader in Canada. In the past financial year the company worked profitably and already in the first quarter 2020.

The current market situation with depressed oil prices will force many competitors with high indebtedness to forced sales, so-called Firesales. The management has communicated that it is waiting for such bargains - just like the investors. A report of success would certainly spur the papers on. Forward-looking investors should consider putting a few shares in their portfolio. The analysts of GBC see the price target per share at EUR 0.21.

While other industry players are getting headaches when it comes to ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) because implementation is time- and cost-intensive and requires a lot of know-how, Saturn Oil & Gas has long since proactively addressed this issue by appointing Jim Payne to the board. Payne is CEO of the Canadian company dynaCERT Inc. which specializes in providing carbon reduction technologies to the global marketplace.

BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and dynaCERT - the cleanest diesel ever

  • Mobility

In a recent vehicle test, experts examined the BMW 520d, Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 and VW Golf 2.0 TDI models in city traffic, on country roads and autobahns. The magazine 'Auto, Motor und Sport' and the British testing specialist Emissions Analytics have tested the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx) in road traffic under real conditions and the results are surprisingly good. The advantages of electric mobility are fading.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla, Volkswagen - Electromobility threatens setback

  • Mobility

The world stands still. Only a few vehicles are still rolling on the roads. Trucks supply the supermarkets with food and those who can, take their own car for shopping or for the way to work to avoid the risk of public transport becoming infected. However, most people currently spend most of their time at their home or home office, as it is now called. The exciting question these days is: when can the old normality finally start again? But there is also enormous uncertainty about the personal economic situation. Will your company or your employer manage to survive? The need to buy a new car in such a situation should be close to zero.

Daimler, dynaCERT, Tesla - who has the best Mobility shares?

  • Mobility

The Corona Crisis is omnipresent. The discussions about CO2 emissions and climate targets have given way to the pandemic. The streets are empty and the population stays at home. People around the globe are taking a break - or rather, they are being asked to take a forced break and avoid social contact. For the economy, the state of deceleration and standstill is a maximum stress test. Conveyors stand still. Supplies are stuck. The finished products cannot find a customer and salaries must continue to be paid. The German government wants to help quickly and offers support programs for salaries. The state basically distributes tax money that has to be earned sooner or later.
