Taking a Second Look at Beyond Meat Stock

The highest priority goal for every company has nothing to do with revenues or EBITDA. Regardless of its industry, size, location, or organizational structure, the number one thing a company needs to do is survive. According to McKinsey, that’s becoming increasingly difficult: In 1935, the life expectancy of an S&P 500 company was 90 years. […]

Investing in Lithium Hasn’t Panned Out. Yet.

Drones are now delivering goods and counting inventory in warehouses. Svelte electric vehicles are plying our roadways, powered by green electricity that comes from sophisticated solar microgrids. All this progress is made possible by the lithium ion battery. Intuitively, it may make sense to invest in lithium batteries, but there’s one problem. It’s the same […]

Array Technologies – A Solar Tracking Stock

Solar is finally having its day in the sun as the Invesco Solar ETF reaches new highs, aided by the merger of Sunrun and Vivint which have soared to the moon. The reason? Everything points to solar being the theme du jour for Robinhood day-trader types to pile into. Further evidence to support this claim […]

Insect Farming Startup Building Robotic Farm for Bugs

Earlier this year we wrote about the sudden lack of interest in funding for vertical farm startups, which are companies led mostly by Silicon Valley gringos bringing microgreens that cost mega greenbacks to urban Millennials. In fact, AgFunder’s 2020 mid-year agtech investment report noted that novel farming startups had raised only $105 million in the […]

6 Sustainable Materials Made from Microalgae and Seaweed

One thing about emerging technologies is that you never know when – or if – they will finally fulfill their promise or fall flat. Take the miracle material graphene. Thin, light, and hard as a diamond, graphene was supposed to revolutionize how we build everything in the future. Not so much. We’ve written about 30 […]

The Biggest Renewable Energy Company in the World

It was just over a year ago when we had boots on the ground in Azerbaijan scouting tech startups for our piece on the Top 12 Disruptive Tech Startups in the Caucasus. Of the three countries featured in our piece, Azerbaijan is the only one afflicted with “the curse of oil.” It’s the same curse […]

Why is The Only Solar Energy ETF Soaring?

Why Has the Guggenheim Solar ETF (TAN) Underperformed? was the title of an article we published more than three years ago. My how things have changed. Since the beginning of this year, TAN is up +96% compared to a Nasdaq return of +24% over the same time frame. There’s no longer any competing solar ETF […]

A Pure-Play Electric Vehicle Charging Stock

About three months ago, we published an article which talked about “How SPACs Reward Everyone Except Retail Investors.” Whenever a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) announces their intention to merge with a startup, shares usually soar on the news alone. And that’s not the only problem. We warned you about all the electric vehicle SPACs […]

Rohinni – A Leader in Mini and Micro LED Technologies

Physicist Richard Feynman once gave a lecture – without notes, like a proper presenter – in which he talked about how there’s plenty of room at the bottom. The year was 1959, and Feynman was proposing that we manipulate matter on an atomic scale, ideas that would eventually become nanotechnology as we know it today. […]
