Analysts that DN spoke to indicate that it was shortage On the news that lowered the stock price.

– Maybe he should surrender
– Perhaps the stock has been a bit on the guesswork in recent days. Austin Elton Ludgaard, analyst at APG Sundal Collier says some may have expected there would be more news.
But today’s presentation was probably mostly aimed at educating investors about Kahoot and their various areas of business, says the analyst.
He notes that Kahoot is now winning several key contracts for the corporate market, and is positive about the new Kahoot product market, with course packages for educational materials.
– It’s like Netflix for course material – you can buy a subscription and get access to all the courses out there. I picked a course on the history of Egypt somewhat at random. A biology student can find courses in biology, etc. I think there’s a lot of really good content out there, but it’s always hard to say how much revenue you’ll provide.
Analyst Henriette Trondsen at brokerage Arctic Securities thinks the stake is now attractive, and notes that the outlook for the company is low. She notes that Arctic’s target price is NOK 45, compared to the current price of just over NOK 26. But she adds:
They will likely have to meet growth expectations before prices increase significantly.

Renewable case for Hydro
Hydro fell 3.8 percent after announcing a new renewable project in Brazil ahead of the exchange’s opening. The project is a wind and solar joint venture in northeastern Brazil, which has been named Feijão. The final investment decision should not be taken until later.
The wind farm’s total investment costs are estimated at $700 million, of which Hydro Rein will own 49.9%.
To TDN Direkt, Carnegie analyst Morten Norman said the investment cost per unit of energy is high compared to other Hydro Rein projects in Brazil – in fact more than double the Boa Sorte and Mendubim projects. At the same time, it is believed that the project has many uncertainties – such as how much wind is present in the area.
We lack many factors to compare these projects, but at this early stage we don’t see Feijão’s project as a “value enhancer,” says Norman.
