In this episode of The Bull & The Bear, we take a closer look at three EV stocks: Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), Nio Inc. (NYSE: NIO) and Plug Power Inc. (Nasdaq: PLUG).

I love data. 

I love the story that it tells. 

Oftentimes, when I was an investigative journalist in the pastit was the data that revealed the true story, not the sources I interviewed. 

The main reason for that: Data doesn’t lie. 

You can try to find data to better support an argument, but at the end of the day, the underlying numbers don’t lie. 

The same thing holds true for the stock market. 

Headlines can move the market by the minute, but smart investors like you want to know what the data says. Because the data doesn’t lie. 

Examining data on a daily basis, I see trends in stocks as well as sectors. 

One of those trends is electric vehicles (EVs). Investors are salivating over EV stocks. 

Just look at the Global X Autonomous & Electric Vehicle ETF (Nasdaq: DRIV).  

This is an exchange-traded fund that holds some of the biggest autonomous and electric vehicle players in the market. 

After hitting a low of around $9 per share in March 2020, the exchange-traded fund (ETF) has climbed to around $27 per share — a 177% jump.

The data proves investors are interested in this growing sector. If the Biden administration focuses on clean energy in the U.S., the EV industry would certainly benefit.
