A Swedish teenager has left shaking oil producers, airlines and other companies that emit large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

These actions will continue to be devalued if the cost of capital increases and lenders tighten their stance with the most polluting sectors.
Technological OPV. Despite a disastrous year, OPVs in the technology sector are expected to reach an optimum point. The markets will attract the IPOs that were postponed in 2019. There will be better results than those obtained by Uber, whose actions have plummeted. Airbnb, meanwhile, defends its favorable trajectory in 2019. Check these boxes.
