Electric Vehicles – The Next Big Thing

The electric vehicle group has done great overall – thanks to a couple big out-performers. We haven’t played many of them at Leavitt Brothers, but the ones we’ve played have been very profitable for us.

The group is here to stay. Both China and the state of California are passing laws requiring a high percentage of vehicles be electric by 2035. Toss in trucks, scooters, delivery vans and smaller vehicles, which are much more appropriate for densely populated cities, there will be some massive winners, on top of the massive winners we already have.

Here are many of the key players in the space. The text descriptions are from Yahoo Finance. Photo credit is noted. Charts are via LeavittBrothers.com.
