    The deal with Weichai Power, moreover, is noteworthy in that it distinguishes Ballard from its fuel-cell peer, Plug Power (NASDAQ:PLUG). Although the material handling equipment market has been its bread and butter, Plug Power has made inroads in broadening its reach into the electric-vehicle market in the U.S., and management is keen on expanding its footprint in China. On the company’s recent Q2 earnings call, however, management noted that it has failed to find a worthy partner. It seems, therefore, that in the race to the Chinese electric-vehicle market, Ballard has taken the pole position.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019: Tesla Motors, Inc.(TSLA)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk looked dead tired and in need of a sandwich in a new CBS interview that filled up Twitter feeds over the weekend. It’s great to see Musk allegedly sleeping in an office on the production floor – not many CEOs of companies with a market cap of more than $50 billion would do the same in an effort to drive desired performance.

    The new electric trucks, a tractor-trailer and a smaller truck for deliveries, will take advantage of the battery-electric technology being developed by Freightliner’s corporate parent, Daimler AG (NASDAQOTH:DDAIF), as it prepares to do battle with Silicon Valley upstart Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA).

  • [By John Rosevear]

    While it may be a while before consumers adopt electric vehicles in huge numbers, the trucking industry is very interested in the technology’s potential to cut fuel costs while greatly reducing emissions. It’s a market that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has been hoping to enter — but as of right now, it looks like Freightliner is ahead of the Silicon Valley upstart’s big-truck effort.

    In November 2016, Tesla Inc.  (TSLA) received shareholder approval to acquire SolarCity.

    The two companies originally agreed on a $2.6 billion buyout price in August and when the books officially closed in November, Tesla took on almost $3 billion in SolarCity debt.

  • [By Rich Smith]

    Accomplishing this goal requires multiple incremental advances, none of which are “rocket science” according to Musk. For example:

    Utilizing Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) battery packs and Tesla electric motors to power the borer and “muck trains,” instead of using diesel engines (which fill tunnels with noxious fumes) or high-voltage electrical power lines (which weigh a ton). Installing a passing lane so that trains carrying away dug-out waste can operate in the same tunnel that a boring machine is digging. Transforming that waste — which companies ordinarily pay to have hauled away and dumped in a landfill — into a useful commercial product, such as bricks, that can be sold for revenue, and/or into structural supports to shore up the tunnel. Installing those structural supports along a tunnel as it is dug, to permit continuous digging.

    Accomplishing this last goal alone, says Musk, could triple or quadruple the speed of digging. Eliminating the cost of waste (“muck”) removal, meanwhile, could cut construction costs by 15% to 20%.

    In addition to Home Depot, Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) fell more than 2.5% yesterday after Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) cut its price target from $376 to $291. The bank cited Tesla’s pending reorganization as a major reason for the cut. It also noted that the firm is facing technical and fundamental hurdles. Here’s more on why Tesla is struggling to make money.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019: Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft (VLKAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    May saw two amazing deals for different reasons. The Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY) 40 billion Euros battery supply deal was truly staggering yet seems almost ignored by investors in the EV metals market. It seems to me investors don’t yet understand the impact of a 40 billion Euro deal and how that will spread down the line to help fund the junior EV metal miners. Then, the Nemaska Lithium deal raising a massive C$400m restored my faith that investors can see the potential for the sector. Finally, the large lithium producers continue to deliver large lithium profit increases year on year, helped along with rising lithium contract prices. An aMAYzing month after all.

    German auto giant Volkswagen AG (NASDAQOTH:VLKAY) said that it will launch its own urban car-sharing service, starting next year in Germany and rolling out worldwide in 2020. It’s similar to existing services, but with a twist: The new service’s cars will be 100% electric.

  • [By John Rosevear]

    Porsche is a small company by auto-industry standards. But because it’s a subsidiary of global giant Volkswagen AG (NASDAQOTH:VLKAY), Porsche’s elite engineering team can develop expensive advanced technology that it might not otherwise be able to afford to put into production.

    That’s good news for the industry as a whole — ranging from Tesla to General Motors Co.  (GM) , Ford Motor Co.  (F) , Volkswagen (VLKAY) and others.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Watch For 2019: Google Inc.(GOOG)

Top 5 Heal Care Stocks To Invest In Right Now

1. Inauguration Day: On Friday, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.

Since his election, Trump has shown an uncanny ability to move markets. Bullish investors, girded by his pro-business rhetoric, have pushed the Dow closer and closer to 20,000 points. But the Republican has also introduced a degree of uncertainty. Trump has made a habit of targeting specific companies on Twitter with little notice. His marks, such as Boeing (BA) and Lockheed Martin (LMT), have seen shares plummet as a result.

Corporate America could be in for a bumpy ride over the next four years.

2. Time for Davos: Business and political leaders from around the world will convene in Davos, Switzerland on Tuesday to kick off the World Economic Forum.

IMF director Christine Lagarde, Facebook (FB, Tech30) COO Sheryl Sandberg, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) founder Jack Ma will be among those in attendance. This year’s theme is “Responsive and Responsible Leadership.”
