Biden’s $2.5 trillion infrastructure plan was televised after the market close on Wednesday evening, with far reaching implications for the electric vehicle market. Benefits should extend to EV companies like Tesla (TSLA), General Motors (GM), and Ford (F). Charging station operators ChargePoint (CHPT) and Blink Charging (BLNK), among others in these industry groups stand to benefit as well.
An additional catalyst should emerge from April’s above average (+14.48%) seasonality prospects (see below). This time of year analysts meet with companies looking for industry groups that will outperform, like beaten down tech related stocks. We’re watching for activity stemming from this catalyst so stay tuned.
EV leaders Nio, Xpeng and Tesla stock are set to jump at the open, while Boeing and Microsoft are at buy zones. We’ll add to our Tesla position today if price ac tion continues its current path.
Wednesday saw price action close above the 21d moving average. The 50d (739.93 +/-) appears to be the next target. Stochastic, MACD and RSI are bullish. Volume is beginning to show signs of more institutional buying activity.
Biden offered his plan as a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity, outlining key points which included massive funding for bridges, roads and water projects, as well as money for expanding broadband access and domestic chip production. We’ll focus on these areas.
A corporate tax hike to 28% from the current 21% would pay for the package long term.
