Portfolio top picks for March 2024
Clean Motion

Market  comment for February / March 2024


The US economy is looking resilient and the increasing interest for Artificial intelligence is adding fuels to the bulls of the equity market during February and March. Remains to be seen if this new confidence is kept during the rest of the spring.

When it comes to inflation the PCE came in as expected which allowed US treasury to remain flat however we did witness a slight downward push on yields with the US 10 year old closing at the lowest point of almost 3 weeks.

In our opinion 2024 should prove to be a turning point for stocks and especially for ESG stocks in general .

The portfolio remains  100 % invested at this point.

Sold positions:

Gomero Group
Absolicon – partly sold in july of 2023

Current ESGFIRE portfolio with Monthly performance for February 2024



Performance Year to date : – 43 %

Market comment:

As we’ve pointed out in previous portfolio reports we have been very worried about Absolicons financial situation for some time now. We sold part of our position in July of 2023 and have only kept a small size to guard our interests.  Absolicon’s management team have given their investors and the market a lesson in destruction of shareholder value. As we critically pointed out in the companys latest financing the terms set in the previous financing were far to unattractive for it to realistically become fully subscribed. The share price has taken a serious beating and is down 43 % during 2024.


Replenish (Earthrenew)

Performance year to date: – 17,65 %

Market comment:

We are confident that Replenish is bound to see a huge upwards valuation near term.This is also our largest position of the portfolio at this point.

We encourage all our readers to read our target price update on Replenish (Earthrenew).
The market does not seem to appreciate the fact that the company has its path clear to 40 million in revenues by 2024 not including potential licensing deals.

The company received 7 million CAD in grants which are not required to be repaid. The cash will be used as equity for the companys Deboult granulation facility and remaining funds are expected to be secured through loan term sheets.

Other potential triggers near term are:
1. Licensing revenues with high margins and ongoing discussions with partners.
2. Field studies showing the superiority of the companys products.
3. Build start of Deboult granulation facility


Vicinity Motor Corp

Performance year to date: + 1,89 %

Market comment:

Everything is in place for Vicinity Motors to have a smashing start of 2024. Credit facility is in place, the 150 million dollar backlog looks strong and the new Ferndale facility is also in the making.
New orders have been coming in and when we hopefully see profitability reveal itself in the quarters to come the market should start showing its appreciation.


Norditek Group

Performance year to date: – 26 % 

Market comment:

Norditek has had a though start to 2024 due to high comparables of 2023. We think the long term growth still looks positive.

Clean motion

Performance year to date: – 15 % 

Market comment:

We are  impatient with the confirmation of the type approval which was set to be approved during November. The company have moved the deadline ahead on several occasions but since factors of the approval remain outside of the company’s control we are not too dissapointed with the delay at this point. Clean motion are  certainly delivering news on a scale not seen for long and we definately think that their cooperation with NEOM is bound to give them both major revenues and marketing which will enable and simplify sales in their other markets. Unfortunately we have yet to see the company release news on their type approval but hopefully this will materialize soon.  Had the general markets been more favorable then we are sure that the stock price of Clean Motion would have reacted very positively on the latest news.

We urge all readers to read our update on Clean Motion with encouraging news. 

Landi Renzo

Performance year to date: – 8.41 %

Market comment:
Landi Renzo had a new analysis released by BG which can be viewed HERE. The target price of GBC AG is 0,70 EUR. We also recommend you read THIS analysis on the company for more information.



Year to date performance: -25 %

Market comment:

Ekobot currently have a share rights issue ongoing which will hopefully strengthen the company’s financials.
