- 2021’s Hottest Electric Vehicle Stocks – Yours Free
This year could be the biggest one yet for the unstoppable electric vehicle megatrend — but if you’re looking to take advantage, the time to act is now.
That’s why Luke Lango has just released his picks for the 11 best EV stocks of 2021. Each one has been hand-selected for its potential to deliver life-changing profits as electric vehicles continue to disrupt the automotive industry.
At a price around $0.45, or $45 per contract, it’s an inexpensive bet on shares moving higher in the next few months.
BRF is a Brazilian company that produces poultry, pork, pasta, vegetables, and other agricultural products for the global market. It sells directly to retail stores, wholesalers and other institutional customers. Shares are up in the past year, but have shed two-thirds of their value since peaking in 2014.
Action to take: Given the move higher in shares in the past year, and the potential to move higher thanks to global food demand and the pork shortage in China, the option looks like an attractive bet here.
Its low price of $0.45 suggests a possible double on a surge higher in the next few months, and the low price also ensures that if the out-of-the-money option stays that way, risk will be limited.
Shares are somewhat unattractive, as the company trades at 21 times forward earnings and isn’t profitable in the most recent quarter. While there are periodic dividend payments, Brazilian stocks are better for speculations than for making direct share investments.
