OX2 to be acquired by EQT and hydrogen stocks with positive momentum driven by US

In the past week, the Mobility and Energy Production & Storage sectors did very well – again. The best-performing stock is about to be acquired by EQT, the leading private equity group in the Nordics. Further, additional news came out for SaltX Technology’s electric quicklime factory, and the hydrogen stocks also had good performance after an American hydrogen company made a deal with the U.S. Energy Department, which fueled the P2X & Fuel Cells sector forward.

Mobility and P2X on top

In the past week, the Mobility sector became the best-performing sector – having done well the past month. Energy Production & Storage as well as Power2X & Fuel Cells also did well with 5% and 3% increases each. Move About Group AB was fueling the Mobility sector with an 18% increase, while OX2 pulled the Energy Production & Storage sector forward following a bid of SEK 60 per share by EQT. Metacon helped to fuel the Power2X & Fuel Cells sector with an 18% increase.

The average return of impact stocks the past week was 1% driven by an overall increase rather than a few companies standing out. 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


OX2, a developer of onshore and offshore wind power, solar power, grid connections, energy storage, and the management of proprietary projects, rose 39% following a potential acquisition of OX2 by EQT. The acquisition has not been completed yet, but EQT already controls 51.8% after Peas Industries decided to sell its shares (45.6%). The stock currently trades at SEK 58.9.

SaltX Technology, a developer of sustainable electrification technology aimed at the industrial sector, rose 27%. The increase came following additional news of a partnership to build the world’s first electric quicklime factory. One of the partners, SMA Mineral, has entered into an agreement with Infinium regarding the delivery of CO2 for the production of e-fuels targeted at the aviation industry.

Metacon is a developer of small and large energy systems for the production of hydrogen, electricity and heat. The stock rose 18% after an American hydrogen company made a deal with the U.S. Energy Department, which fueled the whole hydrogen sector upwards. NEL ASA, another hydrogen stock, also rose 12%.

The average return for the top 10 impact stocks last week was 23%.

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, 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. Scandinavian Enviro Systems has created the largest return year-to-date.
