P2X in beast mode

In the past week, the Power2X & Fuel Cells sector became the best-performing sector with 23% increase. The largest weekly increase recorded in the index to date. The sector consists of 10 stocks. Metacon fueled the rise with a 130% increase, but other companies also did well. Cell Impact rose 30% Hynion rose 17%, and NEL 15%.

The CO2 & Carbon Capture sector also did well although it was mainly driven by an increase of 48% by ChromoGenics AB.

The average return of impact stocks the past week was 1.7% driven by a few companies’ incredible performance. 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


Metacon is a developer of small and large energy systems for the production of hydrogen, electricity and heat. The stock rose 131% without any news in the past week, but the stock is up 266% in the past month following a partnership with Siemens as well as positive market development in the U.S. after an American hydrogen company made a deal with the U.S. Energy Department, which has fueled the whole hydrogen sector upwards.

SaltX Technology, a developer of sustainable electrification technology aimed at the industrial sector, rose 48%. As it is the case with Metacon, SaltX also did not release any company-specific news and the past week, but should rather be seen as momentum with stock being up 106% the past month, and 140% the three months.

Hexagon Purus rose 18%. The company is working on the development of complete vehicle systems. The product portfolio is broad and mainly includes high-pressure cylinders and battery packs for fuel cell and battery-powered vehicles.
