    Global bicycle stocks chart Q2 2021:
    Still riding the wave


    Due to the Covid-related closures, the focus in the first quarter of 2021 was still very much on alternative mobility products. This shifted somewhat in the second quarter. Falling infection figures and rising economic data have provided a breath of fresh air. This is leading to a renewed focus on traditional stock values. After all, in Covid times, these were properly beaten down. For example, shares in the automotive sector fell to respective lows below their actual value. The stock market is currently reacting positively to a time without lockdowns and the current efforts of the automotive industry to make its contribution to the mobility revolution with electrification. Global bicycle stocks continue to cruise at great heights but did not perform as extraordinarily in Q2 as they did in the first three months of this year.

    Global bicycle stocks Q1 2021: The soaring continues


    While most of the existing problems caused by the Corona crisis have yet to be resolved, the global stock market is relying on hopes — hopes for a bright post-Corona future. Instead of going into crisis mode, it is simply bypassing all the economic killers that are piling up.

They rely on another serious advantage: the bicycle and e-bike sales boom pushed by Corona led to excellent business figures last year. These were announced in the first quarter of this year. Some of the record results were a good impetus for the development of the share value in Q1 2021.
