Is Ouster Stock the Best Way to Invest in LiDAR?

Managers are expected to make decisions with limited information and do so with conviction. Oftentimes, it’s more important to have an opinion than it is to have the correct answer. MBAs learn this gift of gab by working on case studies where there is no wrong answer. After they graduate, companies pay them to make […]

8 LiDAR Stocks for Investors to Keep on Their Radar

Last month, we started our search for a robotics stock to replace the robotics ETF in our Nanalyze Disruptive Tech Portfolio. Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) stock is undoubtedly the best option for investors interested in the robot-assisted surgery theme, but we’re not yet convinced that’s the robotic automation market with the most potential, though there’s plenty […]

Cyngn Stock: Investing in Industrial Autonomous Vehicles

Our last article to delve into self-driving technology analyzed autonomous vehicle delivery for Walmart. While we may all someday own a robotic car in the future – and Elon Musk would argue that Tesla owners already do – the most likely scenario is that most self-driving vehicles will be used for commercial purposes in the […]

Argo AI Enables Autonomous Vehicle Delivery for Walmart

History is full of great rivalries. Coke versus Pepsi. Star Trek versus Star Wars. Ali versus Frazier. Good versus Evil. The list goes on. One of the epic battles of our lifetime is Walmart (WMT) versus Amazon (AMZN). The two retail behemoths have been on a collision course for years, as they increasingly compete on […]

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 […]
