4 Self-Driving Semi-Truck Stocks for Investors

Less than four months ago, we did a deep dive into the first pure play in self-driving semi-truck stocks with a profile on TuSimple (TSP). We found the business to be intriguing but opted to sit on the sidelines for now until the company puts more miles on the road and money into its bank […]

Is Self-Driving Truck Stock TuSimple a Buy?

The low-hanging fruit of autonomous driving would have to be semi trucks. They’re predominantly driven on highways which present fewer challenging conditions than city driving. They ply the same routes, over and over. (Nearly 80% of truck freight goods hauled in the U.S. are moved via 10% of the nation’s trade corridors.) And the shortage […]

Reviewing Two Autonomous & Electric Vehicle ETFs

In our recent piece on 13 Artificial Intelligence Trends for Investors to Watch, we noted that the transformational benefits of autonomous driving are still 10 years away. That’s good, because we still haven’t figured out what investments we ought to be making to get a piece of the $7 trillion dollar-autonomous vehicle opportunity. Last week, […]

The Autonomous Vehicle Companies in the Self-Driving Race

If you needed any further proof of how unhinged the stock market has become, just look at the outsized and outlandish IPO for DoorDash (DASH) this week. The company stands at a $70 billion market cap for food delivery. On paper, that makes DoorDash more valuable than General Motors (GM), one of the world’s oldest […]

Luminar Stock Offers High-Risk Pure-Play on Lidar

Birds of a feather flock together. First, we had all the electric vehicle stocks back their assets up into a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) in reverse merger arrangements that sent shares soaring before deals even closed. Now, it appears that LiDAR companies are following suit. Since there is strong interest from our readers on […]

Built Robotics and Autonomous Construction Equipment

In the U.S. alone, 453,200 construction equipment operators plied their trade in 2018, many of whom used earth moving machines to move dirt around for various reasons. While operating an earthmover may sound like fun to an 8-year-old, the job itself mostly fits the three d’s – dull, dirty, and dangerous. Many road construction projects […]

Autonomous Ships from Sea Machines on Cruise Control

In our brave new world of contactless contact, automation is accelerating, whether it’s robots sanitizing hospital rooms or AI managing queues at retail operations. The trend is even spurring drone delivery by air and by ground-based robotic vehicles for last-mile deliveries. The eccentric billionaire that everyone loves to hate and short sell, Elon Musk, claims […]

Here’s Why Short Sellers Are Shorting Tesla

For the last several months we’ve been organizing the 1,700+ articles here on Nanalyze into a handy set of guides for our readers. (You can access these using the dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of this page.) During that process, we realized that we’ve never written about Tesla, aside from a few green tech […]

Velodyne Lidar – The First LiDAR Pure Play Stock

About four years ago, we first discussed a technology called LiDAR, and in that piece we talked about a startup called Velodyne whose LiDAR products were being used in 25 different self-driving car programs at the time. Today, Velodyne has emerged as a leader in the LiDAR space having advanced surprisingly far in just under […]

Hydrogen Fuel Cells for Urban Air Mobility

We recently profiled a startup that is developing a flying motorcycle to go along with a jetpack that it designed and built a few years ago. JetPack Aviation is one of a growing number of companies trying to help launch what’s become known as the urban air mobility industry. The idea is that swarms of […]
