Politics is going its own way with the climate protocol from Paris. In addition to climate protection, many government programs also include keeping necessary life resources clean, such as air and water. Environmental protection is usually associated with higher costs in industry and must be mandated by law to ensure that the necessary measures are implemented consistently. In Europe, we are already well advanced with such climate laws with the CO2 tax. In other countries, it is taking a little longer. The US has been behind since Donald Trump, but this should be made up for under Joe Biden. We take a look at well-known environmental stocks and their opportunities.

    Veolia SA - A benchmark in the water industry

    Veolia SA (formerly Vivendi Environnement) specializes in water, wastewater, waste management and energy supply. Formerly a state-owned public service company, Veolia has undergone several changes and has also been known as Générale des Eaux (CGE) or Suez. Today, the Group employs around 171,000 people and operates in 38 countries; its history dates back to 1853.

    Veolia's core "Water and Wastewater" division specializes in outsourcing water and wastewater services for municipal facilities and industrial customers. Here, Veolia provides engineering, design and execution of construction projects for the production and supply of drinking water, wastewater disposal networks, desalination plants and wastewater treatment plants, and their maintenance and repair. The Energy Services sector offers services to optimize energy efficiency, the economical production of renewable energy and the reduction of C02. In 2020, the Veolia Group supplied drinking water to around 120 million people and disposed of their wastewater and waste. Its waste management, water management, and energy services activities in Germany are concentrated in Veolia Deutschland GmbH, based in Berlin.

    The environmental services of the Veolia Foundation are outstanding. It maintains green non-profit projects in France and abroad with a focus on "sustainable development". Its main fields of activity are the environment, solidarity and professional integration. Since its creation in 2004, the foundation has helped with more than 1,000 projects worldwide, providing financial and human support through volunteers and assisting with humanitarian missions.

    In 2020, Veolia had revenues of EUR 27 billion and a net income of approximately EUR 950 million. The dividend yield is a lush 4%. The sustainable orientation of the Group also pleases investors, as the environmental standard value has already increased by 41% in 12 months.

    Memiontec - Water treatment for Asia

    With Memiontec Holdings Ltd., we find a Singapore-based company whose focus covers all areas of water treatment and purification. For more than 20 years, the Company has provided water and wastewater-related services throughout Singapore, Indonesia and the People's Republic of China. In Indonesia, Memiontec has leveraged its more than 20 years of business presence to diversify into the water supply sector through TOOT and BOOT projects with public or private organizations since 2016. With the entire value chain in the water segment, the Indonesian-based Company is one of the first contacts for local disposal concepts.

    Depending on the type of contamination, Memiontec works with the help of membranes, ion exchangers or a combination of physical, chemical and biological process chains in water purification. Customers are mainly municipalities and larger industrial companies. With good setups in Singapore and Indonesia, the Company's growth target is to provide its environmental services to a wide range of neighboring countries in Asia.

    Currently, it is reported that the water solutions specialist has now won two new tenders worth a total of SGD 12.7 million from Singapore's Public Utilities Board. In April, the Company had already been able to book tickets worth SGD 21.7 million. The Group's order book now stands at around SGD 91.6 million as of July 31, 2021. Memiontec anticipates that there will be several significant public tenders in Singapore over the next two years, which will positively impact the Group's growth.

    The Memiontec share price reacted to the good news with a jump. The price rose by a full 50% from SGD 0.24 to SGD 0.36 within just 5 trading days. The share is also listed in Frankfurt and Stuttgart. The story is now getting more and more attention and fits into any sustainable growth portfolio because of its green focus.

    JinkoSolar - Taken to task with Alibaba & Co.

    Chinese shares are currently not having an easy time because the regulator has looked at business models of successful companies with a USA listing. Internet giants Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and Co., have thus had to shut down or make lasting changes to business units due to various public requirements. It has resulted in an average share price drop of more than 50%.

    The very successful JinkoSolar was even taken to task, even though its business model is more concerned with environmental protection and energy efficiency. However, the thumbscrews on the web giants should be somewhat secondary for the manufacturer of solar modules, yet the poor investment climate also affects Jinko.

    Now the solar giant is introducing a new PV module. At the beginning of the year, the Group had started to produce the monocrystalline solar modules. Some details have been announced about the solar module "Tiger Neo", which will be launched on the market soon. Its efficiency ranges from 21.11 to 22.18%, with a linear degression of power of 0.40% over a full 30 years. In the first year, the performance deteriorates by less than 1%. With these framework parameters, the new module is expected to be a best seller.

    JinkoSolar is currently in the top Group of module producers; moreover, the Company has a solid technological position. Growth should therefore continue unabated as many governments will not roll out green infrastructure programs until 2022. The stock lost over 50% in the China correction from January to May and is now catching up! 20% plus in just one week is quite a feat, though, so act on weak days.


    Not every green stock has what it takes to be a good investment story, as seen in the overpriced hydrogen stocks. Our selection includes solid growth stocks with good medium-term prospects. Veolia and JinkoSolar are relatively well-known standard stocks. The much smaller Memiontec is well-positioned and growing well.

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

    • 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.

    Commerzbank, Triumph Gold, Bitcoin Group - Inflation alert! Which stocks bring returns in this market environment?

    • Gold
    • Crypto
    • Investments

    We have not seen such high inflation for decades. Looking back, it becomes clear that one cannot compare the situation back then with today. Back then, interest rates were at 12%, and as a saver, you could generate an increase in value for your money despite inflation. Today, interest rates are much lower than inflation. Putting money in a savings account will not bring any investor a profit. If you want to protect your money, the first thing that comes to mind is gold because it is considered crisis-proof. But nowadays, it almost seems as if cryptocurrencies could outperform gold. Alternatively, one can bet on stocks that cover these areas. We take a closer look at three companies.
