Before You Buy Your First Electric Vehicle Consider Buying this Stock

Jul 29, 2020

What do you think are the most advanced tools used for investing?

Super computers? Large Bloomberg terminals?

They are very useful, of course but there's more.

Did you know that sophisticated hedge fund managers today use satellite imagery to predict asset prices?

That's right.

For instance, one of them has pioneered the concept of satellite-image car counting.

The technique helps analysing satellite images of parking lots outside retailers. Based on the images, the analysts judge the growth of the retail chain.

But don't give all credit to the hedge fund managers. It was none other than legendary Sam Walton who devised this method of judging growth.

He would fly over competitors' parking lots and count the number of cars. Then he would fly over Walmart's parking lot and count the number of cars there. The difference gave him a sense of direction in his business.

Revealing...The Great Indian Wealth Project

After every economic crisis in the last few decades, India has emerged stronger and better.

For instance, after the 1991 economic crisis, India bounced back stronger than ever.

In the years of recovery and growth that followed, many companies generated 4-digit and 5-digit gains for investors, turning a Rs 1 lakh stake into crores of rupees.

And today, we stand on the threshold of a similar wealth generating opportunity.

As India recovers from the Covid-19 crisis... another... potentially much bigger... opportunity to create wealth is emerging.

And we are sharing full details with our readers at a special event on 17th May.

We will be revealing:

    -  Details on a powerful mega trend that is playing out in India right now

    -  Our #1 stock pick to ride this mega trend

    -  And how you could become a potential dollar millionaire in the long run Since there are limited seats available, we would recommend registering for this FREE event at the earliest.

Can we get such a bird's eye view for growth in electric vehicles (EVs) too?

Of course, it is too early to count electric vehicles in parking lots.

Nevertheless, we could count the number of charging points in our vicinity, over the years, to gauge the growth prospects of EVs.

Now, there are three main elements responsible for accelerating EV deployment.

  • Launch of electric versions of two wheelers, passenger cars, and commercial vehicles
  • Creation of the charging infrastructure
  • Laying the supply chain roadmap (for batteries and components)

So far, we have mostly heard of car makers laying down plans to spend on the assembly lines for their electric vehicles.

But the next phase of growth is gathering pace.

New Research: Our #1 Stock Pick Right Now

In this phase, the power ministry is targeting 4 m-plus population cities under the EV policy initiative. It has approved setting up 2,636 electric vehicle charging stations across 62 cities in 24 states.

So, it is expected that at least one charging station will be available at every 4 kms in most of the selected states.

Not surprisingly, Maharashtra leads the pack.

Not just that. Government utilities aren't the only ones lining up to tap the opportunity.

106 public and private entities have approached the government for permissions to set up about 7,000 EV charging stations.

How to Earn a Fortune in Gold, the Smart Way

Gold is on 'the verge of a decadal run' says Vijay Bhambwani, India's #1 Trader and Editor of Fast Profits Daily at Equitymaster.

He says gold has the potential to generate staggering gains in the coming years...And those who are betting on gold right now will hit the jackpot.

But wait.

While gold is an attractive investment destination, there's a very specific way to play this opportunity...

A way that ensures you rake in maximum profit and perhaps hit the jackpot...while minimizing potential pitfalls. Thankfully, Vijay - India's #1 Trader - can guide you step-by-step in the upcoming gold rush and help hit the jackpot just at the right time.

Sure, you don't want to be an average trader. That's not how you make a fortune.

Here's how you can get Vijay's guidance...

This clearly shows the vehicle manufacturers have enough incentive to capture this latent demand.

The tax benefit in terms of a lower GST rate (at 5%) is a further shot in the arm of the EV industry.

Now, betting on car makers or power utility companies based on their EV plans would be futile for now.

None of them derive a substantial proportion of revenue from electric vehicles or the charging infrastructure, yet.

However, I have been researching one company that is already seeing a significant upside on the EV runway, for few years now.

And despite intense competition in EV manufacturing and charging, this company is unlikely to have many competitors, for several years.

The stock is a good long term investment in my opinion.

Stay tuned for more...
