7 electric vehicle (EV) stocks ready to bounce back
The electric vehicle (EV) industry was almost as sparkling as “pandemic stocks” in 2020. It wasn’t that the EV industry was dormant during the Trump administration.
But, as the saying goes, elections have consequences. And Wall Street understands they can make money in any jurisdiction. And as a bet that Joe Biden would win the presidency, stocks of electric vehicles have skyrocketed.
For starters, the Biden administration has already said it will prioritize climate change like no administration has ever done. And one way to do that is to encourage the production and purchase of electric vehicles.
And to take advantage of this shift towards electric vehicle inventory, many private companies have rushed to get into the action. The preferred way for many of these companies to go public was through a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC). A SPAC is essentially a shortcut to the traditional IPO process.
However, what increases frequently decreases and since the end of February, stocks of electric vehicles have been abused. But this creates an opportunity as the electric vehicle is expected to experience further exceptional growth over the next five years.
To help you take advantage of it, we’ve created this special showcase that includes seven actions that look like they’re ready to be taken to the next level.
