Are These The Top EV Stocks To Invest In Today?

As investors digest the Federal Reserve’s latest monetary policy update, the stock market appears to be on the rebound. Notably, electric vehicle (EV) stocks could be among the top names to consider as markets recover. After all, with the world turning towards EVs to deal with their carbon emission issues, EVs are arguably the future. Because of this, investors, organizations, and automakers alike are more than eager to jump into this upcoming industry. This is evident as EV players like Li Auto (NASDAQ: LI) and Rivian (NASDAQ: RIVN) continue to turn heads in the stock market today.

On one hand, Li Auto reported solid figures in its monthly vehicle delivery update earlier this month. In it, the company delivered 13,485 Li ONEs, its flagship vehicle, marking a 190.2% year-over-year leap. On the other hand, Rivian is reportedly looking to build a $5 billion electric truck manufacturing plant in Georgia. According to sources from The Associated Press, the assembly facility will be focusing on manufacturing Rivian’s commercial delivery vans. Not to mention, Rivian is also set to report its first quarterly earnings since going public, after today’s closing bell.

If all that wasn’t enough, even automotive titans like Toyota (NYSE: TM) are making a push towards EVs. As of earlier this week, the company is planning to invest about $35 billion towards electrifying its portfolio. Given all of this activity in the EV space, should investors be watching these top players?

While that remains to be seen, GM remains hard at work bolstering its EV operations. Evidently, the company is now working with MP Materials (NYSE: MP) to secure a supply of rare earth metals. The likes of which will serve as key components of GM’s upcoming electric motors. Without going into too much detail, the engines are powered by permanent magnets. In turn, these magnets are made from rare earth metals. Aside from establishing this crucial supply agreement, GM is also making for the overall EV scene in the U.S. According to GM VP Shilpan Amin, there are “virtually no factories in the U.S. building these magnets at scale“.
