According to forecasts by experts, the demand for electric vehicles should increase by 21% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) by 2026

The extraordinary demand forecast for electric vehicles over the next five years has now started to cause a massive disruption in global energy markets

As the demand for electric vehicles continues to grow, the demand for lithium – the critical component needed for the batteries that power all of these electric vehicles – is also expected to rise

According to Roskill Information Services, “The demand for lithium chemicals from the end-use sector is projected to be around 280 year over year000 tons of lithium carbonate equivalent increase ”

These projections are already having a profound impact on the price of lithium in the market

Lithium prices decreased from 2018 to the end of 2020, but since Jan. By December 2020 the price of lithium rose 7124% – and could be ready to climb even higher

Given rising lithium prices and rising forecast demand, what’s the best way for investors to play this high EV / drive trend for maximum upside potential?

One company under the radar, United Lithium Corp. (CSE: ULTH; OTC: ULTHF) seems like it might be in the right place at the right time

United Lithium’s flagship project is a recently discovered lithium deposit in central Sweden The company has agreed terms to acquire the project The graduation is expected in April

This project is a near-surface, near-market lithium property in the exploration stage that appears to be helping the company capitalize on Europe’s growing demand for electric vehicles and the strong EU pressure on lithium self-sufficiency

The Bergby Project is a recently discovered lithium-rich pegmatite deposit in central Sweden that offers an ideal location

This property is near the world famous Woxna graphite mine, the new Northvolt lithium battery gigafactory, and close to major mining and transportation infrastructures, workers and equipment suppliers

If the Bergby project has proven to be a commercial storage facility, it is optimally positioned to benefit from access to the EU market and its growing demand for vehicle manufacturing using alternative energy, high-tech equipment and grid storage systems

In addition, the project’s proximity to next-generation lithium-ion battery production facilities is vital, as is access to nearby EU educational institutions and low electricity costs for the low-cost processing of lithium-containing minerals from hard rock / p>

The location of the Bergby Lithium Project, however, is only part of the story of its potential

Mapping and Sampling by United Lithium Corp.The Bergby Property (CSE: ULTH; OTC: ULTHF) defined an extensive field consisting primarily of boulders with abundant lithium-containing minerals

The test results of 41 boulders show mean Li2O (lithium oxide) values ​​of 106% in a range of 003% to 456% Li 2 O; and Ta2O5 (tantalum pentoxide) assays averaged 168 ppm, ranging from 1 ppm to 499 ppm Ta2O5

Further mapping of localized lithium mineralization in outcrops 15 samples from three outcrops returned Li2O values ​​averaging 171% in the range of 001% to 465% Li 2 O; and Ta2O5 values ​​averaging 133 ppm in a range of 16 ppm to 803 ppm Ta2O5

In this drill program, 28 of the 33 holes drilled on the property intersected lithium mineralization along strike length of approx 450 m

The deepest holes, tested with mineralization just 65 meters below surface, are open in both directions along strike and down

Three widespread types of lithium mineralization have been observed in widespread boulders and outcrops on the Bergby property, promoting the potential for extensive mineralization

Homogeneous fine-grain to medium-grain Leukogranite / Aplite: Complex boulders where the aplite material appears to penetrate into coarse-grained pegmatite This style is rich in tantalum, with an average grade of 31 boulders at 208 ppm Ta2O5 The lithium mineralogy of this style has not yet been confirmed however, the measured specific gravity of the highest quality samples was relatively low and suggests that petalite is a dominant mineral (LiAlSi4O10)

Petalite dominated extremely coarse-grained pegmatite: found in both outcrop and boulders; This style is relatively rich in lithium and poor in tantalum

Spodumene-containing, very coarse-grained pegmatite: Coarse spodumene crystals (LiAl (SiO3) 2) were recognized in boulders with crystals up to 30 cm long

The European Union has sounded the alarm about critical raw material shortages and estimates that by 2030 it will need up to 18 times more lithium and five times more cobalt than it currently consumes in order to achieve its goal of climate neutrality

By 2050, it is estimated that the EU will need 60 times more lithium than is currently in demand

This is why the EU has added lithium to its list of critical materials and launched a billion dollar fund to accelerate the production of raw materials for the European battery market

This means that for projects like United Lithium Corp. Potential for considerable capital is available The Bergby project as a project scope is brought into focus

After a discovery is made at Bergby, United Lithium’s (CSE: ULTH; OTC: ULTHF) next task is to define the overall size and quality of the lithium and tantalum resource on the property

The Bergby deposit is open along the strike to the north and south, and there are other known pegmatites in the area that have never been tested for lithium mineralization

A simple drill program on the property for an additional 25 to 40 holes could have a huge impact on the company in a relatively short period of time

It is possible that such a modest drill program – one the Company has the funds to undertake – could be completed within the year to uncover a multi-million ton discovery on the property

One of the most important factors in evaluating an exploration company is the quality of its management

In the case of United Lithium (CSE: ULTH; OTC: ULTHF), the company is led by an experienced leadership team with geological expertise and a history of leading successful exploration companies

With over 20 years of experience in the mining industry, he worked as an exploration geologist and later as a senior geologist at Goldcorp Inc Michael has served as a director and executive with listed and privately owned junior mining companies

His expertise lies in the basis for the extraction of advanced minerals as well as in the marketing and financing of junior companies and Mr Dehn has extensive experience in the exploration and processing of lithium and cobalt

Mr Lalani is an accounting and finance professional with over 10 years of experience in auditing, financial reporting, corporate finance and operations management Mr. Lalani previously served in the audit and insurance group at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, Canada, where he earned the CPA, CA designation and during During his tenure gained extensive accounting experience in the public and private sectors

Mr Lalani has also been a Senior Accountant for PortLiving, a Vancouver-based real estate development company, since 2016 From 2014 to 2016, Mr. Lalani was a Senior Accountant at Century Group, a real estate development company in Vancouver.Mr Lalani is currently the Director and Chief Financial Officer of Soldera Mining Corp.and a director of IMC International Mining Corp.

Positive results from this drill program could mean real change for the Company in Europe – and for battery companies – as it is desperate to do so is to get new lithium sources up and running as soon as possible

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) leads Big Tech’s sustainability push But it’s more than just that From the products themselves, to the packages, to the data centers that power them, Apple has done everything possible to reduce its environmental impact

But now it’s even getting into the transportation business “We’re focusing on autonomous systems It’s a core technology that we consider very important We see it as the mother of all AI projects It’s probably one of the toughest AI projects ever that you can actually work on “Apple boss Tim Cook on Apple’s plans for the car dealership Electric vehicles are not likely to be left out either

Apple’s rumor about car design means that more active material can be packed into the battery, potentially giving the car a longer range.Apple is also exploring a chemistry for the battery called LFP, or lithium iron phosphate, which is inherently less likely to overheat and therefore is safer than other types of lithium-ion batteries

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) is a technology giant that creates everything from software to hardware to more.This is important as it not only helps businesses with mineral exploration, but also relies on Microsoft is a company which also exceeds its emissions targets and aims to be carbon neutral in the next ten years An achievement that will not be an easy task for such a large technology company Why is this so important in the lithium race? Because the green energy boom will be destroyed without the vital metal

That’s why Bill Gates tech giant has made numerous investments in clean energy around the world From Ohio to the Netherlands, Microsoft is investing millions in solar and wind projects to not only reduce its carbon footprint, but also to help neighboring communities to do the same

In addition to its investments and green activities, Microsoft is also stepping into the automatic game Microsoft’s cloud-based Azure infrastructure and edge computing will be vital in this new industry, allowing automakers to do more than just analyze data and theirs Optimize products, but also run advanced tests and simulations to optimize their software in risk-free environments. It even works with leading companies in the auto industry such as Renault and Audi

Mark Everest, Information Systems Development Manager for the Renault Sport Formula 1 team, explained: “There are so many factors that are constantly changing and can influence the racing strategy: track temperature, tire performance, what the other drivers do, and the simulation helps us to quickly understand how the car is configured for a particular route “

Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) has made great strides toward a more sustainable future. As a chipmaker, it relies on the production of key metals and minerals like copper and lithium, but what makes NVIDIA even more special is the fact that it is addressing the ESG trend on all fronts, in fact, it has been ranked one of the top 100 companies in the world for its incredible working conditions, hiring practices and professional development programs in addition to being ranked as one of the world’s top companies to work for Also listed on MIT Tech Review’s 50 Smartest Companies and Human Rights Watch’s Corporate Equality Index

Not only is Nvidia a role model for businesses in its social and governance stance, but it’s also firmly committed to a greener future. From the demand for renewable energy in daily operations to the innovative technological advances in chip manufacturing that drive the To reduce energy consumption for the power supply of devices, Nvidia is reviewing all criteria for impact investors

While electric vehicles are currently the talk of Wall Street, autonomous vehicles are on the horizon, too, and they too will rely on a number of critical metals and resources, and the leader in this push is Waymo, a subsidy from tech giant Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: togetL) Waymo may be the de facto leader in the burgeoning autonomous vehicle industry.Cars have been around for several years now that drive themselves through the U.S. In Arizona alone, Alphabet’s self-driving cars have signed up over 6.1 million miles in perspective, that means that Alphabet’s autonomous cars have traveled the distance between New York City and San Francisco over 2,100 times, or, as the company explains, “over 500 years of driving for an average licensed US driver. Even more impressive, however, is that the vehicles only took 47 “Contact events” were involved and the vast majority of collisions were due to human error and none of the parties involved resulted in serious injury

While these tests are extremely promising for Alphabet’s Waymo, there are still some hurdles to overcome.First of all, these lengthy trials took place in Phoenix, a city not exactly known for extreme weather.Second, a problem that can frustrate many drivers, the vehicles operated in a kind of overcautious mode, slowing down and sometimes taking unnecessary precautions to avoid conflict

While Alphabet’s Waymo is gaining a lot of recognition for these massive accomplishments, it’s centered around a widespread and hugely popular chip maker, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) and Waymo partnered back in 2017 and have been working together to optimize their technology together since then Their mutual knowledge of hardware and software have made the technology giants great strides in building the car of the future

In addition to its efforts with Waymo, Intel led the development of its own artificial intelligence and image processing hardware. Back in 2017, it acquired MobileEye, a provider of camera-based chips and software for the global wireless industry, and now Intel is positioning itself in a new one Contract with Luminar, another up and coming tech company at the forefront of this movement, as its own giant in this new sector

Technology Is Changing Our World, And Results Are Visible In Real Time If you grew up in the 1980s watching reruns of Star Trek, think for a moment about fantastic devices that have slipped into our lives off the screen: wearable communicators , portable computers, voice activated systems, to name a few Scotty even automated the spaceship Enterprise so that the ship could travel with only five people on board.We don’t have a Star Trek transporter, and quantum physics tells us we probably don’t will come soon, but autonomous technologies are changing the way we commute Artificial intelligence systems – thinking computers or AI – are coming into production and online and shaping the entire spectrum of the transport experience. On the roads they use, we are gradually seeing autonomous vehicles and AI-powered support services with this in mind, we have Used the TipRanks database to track two transportation-related stocks that are heavily involved in AI technology, both recently recognized by 5-star analysts who each see double-digit growth potential for Cerence, Inc (CRNC) Cerence develops AI Tech as the brain behind an autonomous vehicle system The company’s technology focuses on voice activation and enables the creation of “voice assistants” for what Cerence calls a “state-of-the-art in-car experience”, while Cerence uses voice recognition on vehicle control systems uses VR technology – and its connection to AI – for several years now.Cerence can boast of having installed its AI-powered voice systems in over 325 million vehicles that are already on the move. And the company has more than 1400 patents – so there are many more ideas pending. Cerence’s customers include names from the entire spectrum of automobiles, from famous Detroit stalwarts such as Ford and GMC to international names such as Volkswagen, Toyota and Hyundai Cerence also has the newer names in the global market Automotive scene not shunned – India’s Tata Motors is a customer, as is China’s Great Wall of China earlier this month, Cerence announced its results for the first quarter of 21, reporting results that were above expectations for both sales and earnings. The bottom line was those reported $ 95 million a year-over-year profit of 23% – and a company record EPS was a solid 59 cents per share, a 103% profit year-over-year. In addition to strong earnings, CRNC stocks have been steady over the long term Gains Made Its stock is up an impressive 362% over the past 12 months. Among the bulls is Needhams 5-Star Analyst Rajvindra Gill Who Followed Cerence and Is Impressed “With automotive manufacturing recovering from COVID-19 shutdowns and Cerence’s continued success in capturing market share, Edge sales per shipping unit are increasing Management continues to see penetration rates soar regardless of what happens to short-term auto production, “noted Gill. The analyst added,” Introducing our 10-year model [and] extending our forecast from 2025 to 2030 since we are building our confidence in the company’s ability to execute and the recurring nature of its revenue. Our model predicts revenue of $ 1B in 2030 and free cash flow of $ 367 million To this end, Gill is pricing CRNC shares as a buy, and his target price of $ 155 shows his confidence in an uptrend of ~ 26% for the year ahead. (To view Gill’s track record, click here) Among Gill’s colleagues, Apple has a consensus rating of moderate buys based on 5 buys and 3 holds with an average price target of $ 12438, analysts believe CRNC should remain range bound for now (see CRNC stock analysis on TipRanks) at Rekor Systems (REKR) Maryland-based Rekor is in an interesting niche that you probably don’t think of often – but one that brings huge benefits through the application of AI technology. Rekor focuses on security solutions for traffic control, particularly license plate recognition , but also on automated payment systems that promise to revolutionize toll roads and drive-through windows for restaurants. Rekor bases its products on AI-supported recognition technology or the ability of computer-controlled cameras and sensors to recognize and recognize individual vehicles in the flow of traffic. The volume of data is enormous; AI is required for the systems to be able to sort out the relevant vehicles. Rekor uses an open software platform in its applications and markets the know-how in a variety of niches, including the fast food and toll road industries mentioned above, but also the state-owned transportation and toll road industries public safety departments Once installed, various applications of Rekor’s AI system are helping customers improve their revenue by increasing efficiency in part, but also enabling rapid collection of tolls and fees, for the past 12 months, the REKR shares have seen tremendous growth, adding 285% Rekor’s earnings have grown with stock value. The company’s final quarter of the report, the third quarter of 20, saw gross sales increase 40% year over year to $ 2.1 million. By the end of the third quarter, the company had booked $ 6 million in total sales for 2020, 60% more than last year Northland Capital’s 5-star analyst Michael Latimore describes Rekor’s expansion potential as “performing multiple shots on goal,” “he writes,” Oklahoma has just launched its uninsured motorist program with Rekors technology in this one Year started and this model is excellently repeatable in other, larger states Texas has just passed a committee bill approving such a program, and Florida will soon follow suit. MasterCard is talking to several fast food restaurants to use Rekor technology to enhance customer experience improve (by using license plate information et to speed up customer transactions) Tollways wants to replace older RFID services with better and faster detection. In line with these bullish comments, Latimore rates the stock as an outperform (i.e. Buy) and sets a price target of $ 24, implying an uptrend of ~ 44% for a year (To see Latimore’s track record, click here) Rekor has just started to grab Wall Street’s attention and only two reviews are known so far – but both are buys.The average price target is $ 25, suggesting that of the $ 16 ~ 50% Have place67 trading price in the coming year (see REKR stock analysis on TipRanks) To find great ideas for trading AI stocks at attractive ratings, visit TipRanks ‘Best Stocks to Buy, a newly launched tool that brings together all of the insights into TipRanks’ stocks Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this article are for exclusive use those of the featured analysts The content is intended for informational purposes only.
