Mobility on top – again

In the past week, the mobility sector yet again was the best performer. The sector is now the only one with a positive return year-to-date. The positive trajectory was driven by good performance by the Danish companies Donkey Republic and GreenMobility following 50% growth in Q1 by the latter. The CO2 & Carbon Capture sector also had a good week, while Power2X & Fuel Cells did poorly with a 6% decline. The poor performance was especially driven by the two hydrogen stocks Everfuel (-24%) and NEL (-9%). NEL delivered worse than expected quarterly results, whereafter multiple analysts lowered their price targets.

The average return of impact stocks the past week was -2.22% driven by an overall decline rather than single stocks falling apart. All sectors except for the mobility sector are still down year-to-date and thus underperforming relative to the majority of global indexes that have risen.

Overview of the performance of each sector the past week


Recyctec was the best-performing stock last week with a 43% increase – without any news. The company develops purification methods that restore glycol to its original state so that it may again be utilised. Ferroamp came in second with an 18% increase after they received MSEK 39 from a rights issue. The company develops various modular systems and technical platforms for energy storage. Finally, Bioextrax also did well. Bioextrax is a recycling company that specializes in making technology platforms that convert organic waste into various environmentally friendly materials. The stock rose 14% following a fully subscribed rights issue, where the company will receive MSEK 9.3 before costs. Both Climeon and Nordic Aqua Partners released their annual reports yesterday.

The return for the top 10 impact stocks last week was 10.9%.

All sectors year-to-date

Waste Management

The waste management sector, characterized by its essential and non-cyclical nature, should present 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. Recyctec, Scandinavian Enviro Systems, and Agilyx have delivered 20%+ returns year-to-date.
