2 Sectors to Play the Tesla and Ford EV Boom … and 1 to Avoid
The electric vehicle (EV) revolution hasn’t wiped out gas-powered cars just yet.
But analysts predict it’s only a matter of time. Electric cars will soon be everywhere. Once that happens, you can expect them to replace our fuel-based cars for good.
The global market share for EVs will soar past $912 billion in less than 10 years.
Automakers such as Tesla and Ford have already dedicated key resources to ramping up EV production in the coming years.
These moves will ensure more affordable and efficient models come to market.
Our experts agree that this boom market will reach new highs. But how can you ensure you’re playing the most profitable sectors?
We asked three of our experts about the best ways to trade the bullish trend in EVs … and one sector to avoid at all costs.
Chad Shoop told us about one sector he’s tracking to profit from the EV boom in 2019:
There are countless ways to play self-driving cars. It’s an all-out race to produce this technology. The first company that achieves it will dominate the market for years to come. Finding that company is challenging right now. It’s like buying a lottery ticket: You could hit it big, or it could prove worthless. That’s why I prefer adding exposure to the underlying technology that makes electric vehicles possible: semiconductor stocks. These companies will benefit from the race to develop self-driving EVs. They’ll also play into the continued expansion of smart devices.
I’m preparing a Winning Investor Daily article for Tuesday on electric cars. I’ll recommend a specific exchange-traded fund and give you more info about this profitable sector. Stay tuned!
Chad regularly recommends semiconductor stocks to readers of Pure Income. Readers secured a solid gain on the chipmaker Qualcomm Inc. last week.
And he has more plays on semiconductors planned in the year ahead. You can find out more about his winning income strategy here.
John Ross explained why copper is a solid long-term bet on electric vehicles:
The electrification of everything will keep copper relevant for decades. But the electrification trend is only making small dents in global copper supply. I focus on two- to three-month price trends. I can’t get too hung up on the long-term outlook for electric vehicles. But copper still represents a great way to trade EVs. Trading copper is all about global growth sentiment. The trade war is scaring investors right now. But that will change! I’m preparing for an opportunity to buy copper at a discount. I’ll buy call options on major copper producers to leverage copper’s price rallies when the time is right.
Finally, Matt Badiali cautioned against jumping into one natural resource play right now:
The lithium space is in bear market territory. One of the world’s largest lithium producers is Sociedad Quimica y Minera de Chile (NYSE: SQM). The company’s stock has dipped more than 46% from its high in January 2018. That’s a trend that will continue in 2019.
Matt understands better than most traders that natural resource markets are cyclical. While lithium stocks are falling, his Real Wealth Strategist readers are getting positions that are up by the high double digits in short order.
His readers are making gains in the booming cannabis sector — like the 65% gain they made in Canopy Growth Corp. in about six weeks! He’s researching even more marijuana stocks that are buys. You can learn more right here.
