The robotaxi industry looks like it has more legs than the electric vehicle (EV) market at this point.

Joby Aviation (NYSE:JOBY) looks every bit the industry leader it is.
There’s no question Warren Buffett has a love affair with Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). The billionaire investor built up a position in the tech giant that allowed AAPL stock to account for almost half of Berkshire Hathaway‘s (NYSE:BRK-A)(NYSE:BRK-B) portfolio value. And then Buffett did this. He sold about 10 million shares worth some $2 billion last quarter.

My stance on Chinese EV maker Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock has changed, and I now see more relative upside for the company’s competitors, looking at this space more broadly.

Hence, many investors still consider EV stocks as a compelling investment opportunity, especially

Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock has demonstrated far greater resilience that I suggested in my last article. Earlier this month, I argued Tesla was set to stay on a downward trajectory following the company’s post-earnings plunge. Rather than sinking even lower, shares have found support and experienced a modest bounce-back in price. That said, I wouldn’t necessarily
There are lots of overextended stocks out there falling short thanks to dividend payments that are too good to be true. The internationally known pharmaceutical company Bayer (OTCMKTS:BAYRY) is a great example of this as the company recently announced a 95% dividend cut on Feb. 20. It plans to pay the legal minimum of 0.11
Most small-cap stocks are still in a bear market. When a rising tide does not lift all boats, everybody drowns. We have never seen anything like this “new bull market” before in history, where the top names in the S&P 500 are so disproportionately driving total returns, while most stocks are nowhere near their 2021
BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) stocks stand as a towering testament to market influence and financial prowess.

Some people like to copy the portfolio of legendary investor and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B). However, I encourage everyone to think for themselves. Buffett’s portfolio may include shares of Mastercard (NYSE:MA). Nevertheless, a thorough MA stock analysis will reveal that the shares aren’t necessarily a great value right now. And by the way, Mastercard isn’t ideal
Investors have been waiting for renewable energy stocks to live up to their potential. After being beaten down in 2023, many investors are hopeful that 2024 will be a better year. No matter where you stand on the viability of renewable energy sources, they will be part of the mix going forward. And with the
Unless a significant portion of today’s factories and industrialist giants are still operating under technology from the Industrial Revolution, today’s global manufacturing and industrial value chain relies on technology to operate and meet the demands of their businesses and customers. That simple fact of reality is inviting you into a massive opportunity ahead. Of course,
You don’t need a deep Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock analysis to tell you it’s the worst-performing stock of the Magnificent Seven in 2024 so far. The EV maker has different issues than those confronting rival Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN), which just reported terrible earnings that sent its stock careening lower. But the general EV market malaise is heavy
Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) stock is right where it was 30 years ago, swimming in the eye of a growth hurricane. Today’s hurricane, of course, is Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), whose blowout earnings February 21 turned the whole market around.
