Electric Avenue: EV Competition Means Off-Ramp For Some

  • Several years ago, we created a group of “new energies/sustainability” stock indices, starting on 1/1/2019 – the EV index is the worst performer, despite Tesla.
  • Many companies are teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, some are already there, and others will, in our view, follow. The special sauce is not special enough.
  • In a developed industry, we would expect consolidation, but combining two different companies with distinct products and both burning cash gains nothing.
  • Also facing up to reality are fuels/materials from crops – input costs are too high, competition with the food chain is real, capital costs significant, stocks are down.
  • Otherwise, we look at polyester recycling and its high cost, Oxy’s grand carbon plans, who pays for blue ammonia, and why some hydrogen hubs will lose money.
