7 stocks of electric vehicles (EV) with real juice

I’ll start with a disclaimer. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) or Nio (NYSE: NIO) do not appear in this list. And that’s not because I’m contrary. I only see Tesla and Nio as the well-known big names in the electric vehicle sector. The goal of this presentation is to help you identify stocks that may be flying below your radar.

Many EV shares went public in 2020 through a special purpose vehicle (SPAC). This story has both good and bad. The good thing is that investors have many options to invest in the EV sector. Many of the companies that have hit the market are trying to enter a specific niche.

The potentially bad news is that these stocks are very speculative by nature. While companies like Tesla and Nio have a proven (if current) track record, investors can analyze sales and orders, for example. Many of these newly listed companies urge investors to buy the story more than the stock, and that’s always risky.

In this special presentation, however, we identified seven companies whose histories are so compelling that investors should be rewarded in 2021.
