"[...] We can convert buses and trucks to be completely climate neutral. In doing so, we take a modular and incremental approach. That means we can work with all current vehicle types and respond to new technology and innovation [...]" Dirk Graszt, CEO, Clean Logistics SE
The native Rhineland-Palatinate has been a passionate market participant for more than 25 years. After studying business administration in Mannheim, he worked as a journalist, in equity sales and many years in equity research.
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.
