Trends come and go. When everyone suddenly had to switch to their home office in March of last year, TeamViewer's stock was considered an absolute future stock. But times have changed. Home offices have become the new normal and are no longer sweeping anyone off their feet. Instead, the hot topics are electromobility and stock market trading. We present exciting stocks with a sustainable perspective.

Varta: Electromobility "Made in Germany"?

The list of hot stocks always includes one name: Varta. The German manufacturer supplies batteries primarily for hearing aids or headphones. Since the consumer electronics sector is booming, Varta is also benefiting strongly from the trend. A look at the customer list helps to classify the battery manufacturer's situation: In addition to Apple, Varta also supplies Samsung and Sony. Since demand is booming, Varta even wants to expand its capacities in 2021. The fact that Varta batteries will continue to sell in the future is almost certainly due to their technological superiority over cheap Asian competitors. Varta is continuously working on increasing its batteries' energy density to ensure that users can enjoy their devices for even longer.

In addition to the traditional battery business, Varta also wants to enter battery production for electromobility. Public funding of EUR 300 million is to flow into this. Although competitors from Asia are well-positioned in this area, the fantasy surrounding battery production for electric cars drives Varta's share price. Some market observers see the share moderately valued up to a level of EUR 200. The share is currently trading at EUR 125, still some way from its all-time high of EUR 133.50. Given the growth potential, Varta could be promising in the long term.

wallstreet:online: Trading boom drives the share

wallstreet:online is also considered promising. The portal operator has been among the brokers for more than a year and offers a good range of services with its Smartbroker, which brought 70,000 new securities accounts in the first year. In total, Smartbroker has assets of more than EUR 2 billion. wallstreet:online was able to drive this growth cost-effectively thanks to its platforms and websites with "on-board" resources. In the forums of wallstreet-online.de and Finanznachrichten.de, the Company refers the relevant target group to its own broker offering. The media business units and the Smartbroker, therefore, complement each other perfectly.

The Company's forecasts indicate that this growth could further continue in 2021, with a potential customer base reaching 120,000 by the end of 2021. The Company's portals are to provide even better support in the future. At wallstreet:online, one can imagine that customers will also trade actively from articles in the future. Since the portfolio's websites are an essential source of information for many private investors, this fits. Within a year, the number of page impressions rose from 200 to 300 million. Most private investors themselves probably know the fact that shares and self-determined investments are in vogue. Anyone who has shares from wallstreet:online in their portfolio and leaves them there can profit from the trend without actively trading themselves.

TeamViewer: Success must be preserved

While wallstreet:online's stock has gained more than 180% within a year, TeamViewer's return is only 31%. This low return is somewhat surprising since TeamViewer was one of the most hyped stocks in 2020 during the first lockdown. But since the summer of 2020, the share price has been moving sideways with a downward trend. Although TeamViewer was able to increase sales and the number of users last year significantly, the Company also invested in the future. TeamViewer opened sales offices around the globe and entered new markets. New competition is also waiting there.

To defend the market share it gained in 2020, TeamViewer will have to step up its game both technologically and in terms of sales. The market also believes that this situation could become challenging and is cautious about TeamViewer's stock. The Company undoubtedly has good products, but the "home office pie" currently appears to be distributed. Some trends are more promising—for example, the business model of wallstreet:online.

We live in uncertain times. And not just since Covid-19 came on the scene. Even before that, interest rates were at rock bottom thanks to the central banks' flood of money. Alternative return concepts were needed: cryptocurrencies, tokens, ICOs, etc. If all this is too hot for you, you might want to think about something that has always promised a sustainable return: the dividend. With dividend yields around 5% or above, the following stocks are attractive securities for every wallet from an investor's perspective.
