Hydrogen going up and Nordic Aqua Partners the best case this year

The Food & Beverage sector stood out as the best-performing sector in the past week, while multiple hydrogen companies also did well. One of them was Green Hydrogen Systems which rose following technical proof of concept for an electrolyser prototype. New companies have moved into the top 10, but the average return last week was again negative with -2,2% weekly return and most impact stocks are down this year.

Top 10 best-performing impact stocks of the year

All sectors year-to-date

Waste Management

The waste management sector, characterized by its essential and non-cyclical nature, often presents a stable investment opportunity with long-term potential, driven by increasing environmental awareness, regulatory demands, and the growing need for efficient waste disposal and recycling solutions. Despite this, the majority of the stocks have performed negatively this year. Scandinavian Enviro Systems, Agilyx, and Recyctec Holding have delivered 20%+ returns year-to-date. Renewcell is removed from the list as they filed for bankruptcy this week.

Power2X & Fuel Cells

The Power-to-X and Fuel Cells sector offers exciting investment opportunities in the evolving landscape of clean and sustainable energy technologies, but investors should also be mindful of the evolving regulatory and competitive landscape in this rapidly advancing field. Only Hynion and Biokraft International have delivered a positive return year-to-date.

Food & Beverages

The food and beverages sector is heavily driven by consumer demand and having strong brands is a major advantage. Investors should consider factors such as changing consumer preferences, health and sustainability trends, and global supply chain dynamics to identify promising opportunities. Year to date, Opticept Technologies is the odd one with an almost 30% decrease in stock price.
