The Best Electric Vehicle Battery Stocks to Own

Jul 7, 2021

1905 was a historic year for the United States. That was when the first gas station was constructed. Until then, horse carriages were the main mode of transport.

The rest is history...

In about 20 years, horse carriages were almost completely replaced by cars in the US.

Sufficient supply of oil and natural gas changed the face of transportation industry. Plus, it gave birth to the megatrend of passenger cars. It created behemoths like General Motors and Ford.

The world has come a long way since then. Oil is now neither economical nor climate friendly. Therefore, the dominance of a new source of energy is imminent.

The Hidden Opportunity in EV Stocks No One Knows About

With today's fast-changing technology and concern about the environment, the popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) has been on the rise.

Most investors go the usual route of investing in large companies and waiting to rake in profits.

We believe that's not the best approach.

In fact, our research has uncovered a hidden way to make potentially windfall gains from this EV opportunity.

Renewable energy sources like wind and solar are now more accessible and increasingly affordable.

But it is electricity that is the gamechanger.

Electricity generated from renewable sources is now in demand more than ever before.

And India has a huge role to play in the new energy renaissance over coming decades.

In 2018 and 2019, India's investment in solar energy panels was greater than in all fossil fuel based electricity sources combined.

Perhaps you did not realise this yet. But things have changed very fast in the otherwise boring world of power generation.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) believes that India will be the country with the greatest need for additional energy flexibility in the coming decades. Stored electricity is flexible enough to cater to gaps and changes in supply and demand. Which means all the electricity that is being produced will have to be stored effectively for later use.

So, electric batteries are to this century what oil was to the previous one..

The International Energy Agency has predicted that India will have a third of global battery storage capacity by 2040.

Understandably all the focus is on the largest battery makers in the country.

If you are thinking of electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturers, you are not wrong. But you should know that EV batteries are only a small part of this huge opportunity.

The other thing about this opportunity is again quite predictable.

The markets believe that history will repeat itself and therefore the biggest names in this space are the ones to bet on. This is already reflected in premium valuations of such companies.

After all, a few years back, the largest oil refiner, electricity producer and combustion vehicle manufacturer were the key wealth creators.

PSU power generator NTPC went up four times in four years between 2004 and 2008.

What CNBC Won't Tell You...

The next 10 years would be a golden period for Indian investors...

The "Big Bull" Rakesh Jhunjhunwala claims it could be one of the largest stock market bull runs in India ever...

And veteran investor Raamdeo Agarwal says the S&P BSE Sensex could even reach 200,000 points in the next 10 years... All thanks to these...

Highly Powerful Wealth-Building Mega-Trends

Stock of ONGC tripled in five years from 2009 to 2014.

Stock of Maruti Suzuki went up seven times in four years from 2013 to 2018.

But following the heavyweights could leave you thoroughly disappointed this time.

For the real wealth creation is with the underdogs. The companies that are just cogs in the wheel of green energy ecosystem could create huge wealth in the years to come.

I have been following such megatrends regularly for my Great Indian Wealth Project.

I firmly believe riding such trends with the right stocks could be the steppingstone to an eight-figure fortune.

I have laid out my blueprint in my report - Eight Steps to Your Eight Figure Fortune.

All I want to say here is that change is coming faster than most thought it would.

And the opportunity to profit from it, perhaps, lies not in the large well-known companies, but elsewhere.
