As I am making good progress, I included this time 25 stocks. The first 100 are done, another 700 or so to go ­čśë

Nr. 76: Uniwheels AG – ISIN DE000A13STW4

Interestingly the German company floated its shares in Poland in 2015.┬áTheir main products are┬á aluminium rims / wheels for cars.┬á In 2017, the founders of Uniwheels sold their majority to US based Superior. Maybe a squeeze out opportunity, but I know little on how this works in Poland.┬á“Pass”

Nr 77: Foris AG

  • the company is not easy to understand
