2021 had it all: on the one hand, more lockdowns, virus variants, inflation, zero or negative interest rates, supply bottlenecks, political crises, trade and other wars, etc. On the other hand, 2021 experienced a world stock market that trudged steadily upward. This also gave our 2021 cycling stock some major ...

One in five Germans has bought something via social networks, just as many can imagine it. Social media and e-commerce are merging, and the customer journey is being redefined. A recent YouGov study shows the relevance of social shopping for German consumers.
In its latest study conducted among 2,000 Germans, GfK reports a mixed picture of consumer sentiment in October. The propensity to buy increased again, while economic and income expectations declined. As the propensity to save is also falling noticeably, GfK forecasts a consumer climate of 0.9 points for November, 0.5 ...

The underlying goal of a brand name is to trigger a reaction. How do you make sure it’s the right one?
From the first quarter to the second quarter of 2021, the 32 outdoor stocks we track were up 13.82 percent. Neither the bike nor the retail companies had a major impact here, but rather a few of the large groups such as Anta Sports, Vista Outdoor and American Outdoor Brands, ...

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.

The plain “Buy now”-button seems to be a thing of the past. Online shopping is reducing friction, getting more intuitive, more fluid – and more social. “Social commerce” – or “social shopping” – is the fastest-growing distribution channel worldwide. Shoppable posts and stories allow brands and users to tag specific ...

Production in Myanmar has almost never been easy due to political circumstances. After the country experienced a boom in textile manufacturing with the beginning of the democratic process in 2012, the situation has worsened since the military coup on February 1 of this year to such an extent that a ...

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. Supported by further stimulus packages and the open money floodgates of central banks, the stock market remains high. Our cycling stock chartists are ahead of the curve. 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.
