How to Invest in the Best Uranium Mining Stocks

Nuclear energy is having a resurgence lately, thanks to advanced nuclear technologies and an increased investor interest in clean energy sources. Nuclear power is not strictly renewable – it uses uranium as its fuel – but it is certainly green. Currently, nuclear power provides about 10% of the world’s electricity, and 18% of electricity in […]

Can Vertical Farms Be Profitable?

Earlier this year, we covered a couple of indoor farming companies going public through mergers with special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Neither seemed very appetizing for retail investors, with negligible revenues to date. As we predicted, more indoor farming startups (referring to both large-scale greenhouses and vertical farming operations) are jumping on the SPAC crazy […]

When Will We Have Nuclear Fusion Energy?

One of our most popular articles so far this year was on the current state of molten salt reactors, an advanced nuclear technology that promises to be a cleaner, safer, and cheaper source of nuclear fission energy. But like so many moonshot technologies, scalability and commercial viability always seem a decade away. That’s certainly the […]

5 Energy Storage Systems for the Electrical Grid

Most of our articles about green technologies often end with the same complaint: Where are the greenbacks? Profitability in the low-carbon, environment-first economy remains largely elusive. For example, everyone is suddenly interested in carbon capture after Elon Musk backed a $100 million XPRIZE for the best solution for mitigating emissions. But, as we’ve pointed out […]

6 Biomimicry Companies Helping Nature Heal Itself

Since when did Americans go from talking about the likelihood of weekend rain to practically fist fighting over changing weather patterns? “Save the planet!” they’ll demand of you, as they wave their placards in the air. Seems a bit arrogant to think that mankind is capable of determining nature’s fate, but the debate is irrelevant. […]

A Good Battery Stock With Exposure to Multiple Tech Trends

Investing in lithium batteries is an easy-to-understand thesis. Electric cars use lithium batteries, so you’re investing in the Chevrons and Exxons of tomorrow by investing in companies that produce batteries. That’s a good theory, but it’s not so easily executed on. Do you invest in the raw materials like lithium? We’ve always advised against that, […]

The Beyond Meat Stock Forecast You’re Looking For

It’s been about 16 months since The Rona first reared its ugly head and you wouldn’t be able to tell it by looking at the markets. The S&P 500 is up +30% and the NASDAQ up +55% from the day the news first broke. The effects of the pandemic on the global economy were devastating […]

Two Indoor Farming Stocks For FoodTech Investors

First it came for electric vehicle companies, and we did nothing. Then it started to swallow the commercial space industry, and we did nothing. Now there are hints of a new target – indoor farming companies. Will it be different this time? Probably not. In fact, it’s the same old story: An emerging technology sector […]

Molten Salt Reactors Leading Advanced Nuclear Technology

Some emerging technologies are advancing so rapidly that we seem to write about them every week. Artificial intelligence is the most obvious example, as it bleeds into most other sectors, including robotics, smart cities, drug discovery, and the list goes on. Progress around other technologies is so painfully slow – and the eventual payoff debatable […]

3 Mid-Cap Global Battery Manufacturer Stocks

Investing in batteries is an easily understood thesis. Electric cars use batteries, and today you see loads of them driving around. Tesla doesn’t just use their own batteries, they also buy them from other manufacturers such as Panasonic and LG Chem. Then, there are all the drones you see flying around, the smartphones in everyone’s […]
