This week we will be writing about an underappreciated metal that is crucial to the energy revolution and shift to electrification. Regardless of your position on the timeframe, just about anyone could tell you that electric vehicles are the way of the future. The real question is do we currently have enough supply of the crucial commodities needed to develop and produce these vehicles on a mass scale?
This week we will be visiting the world of semiconductors and looking at why the equipment providers may be a compelling way to gain exposure to the sector. We are currently in the midst of a massive global shortage of semiconductors at a time when demand is skyrocketing as a result of aggressive digitisation and the rise of tech like electric vehicles. The stock in question is a SATS (Semiconductor Assembly and Testing Services) company.
This week we will be visiting a stock in our Global Mobility portfolio that is poised to benefit from the themes of electrification and autonomy. While these thematics are well known and are well covered, most investors look to only a few select stocks to benefit from the trends (i.e. Tesla or their favorite lithium stock). Our Global Mobility portfolio focuses on finding the companies that are forming the ecosystem around these core thematics, the companies that will benefit from these trends but are perhaps less known to the everyday investor.
A few weeks ago we covered a key holding in the TAMIM Global Mobility portfolio, a fully integrated lithium company called Albemarle (ALB.NYSE) that is poised to benefit from increased production of electric vehicles. This week we revisit lithium and take a look at three heavyweight ASX stocks that are shaping up as market leaders.
This week we are tackling the subject of rare earths, their applications for electric vehicles and how TAMIM’s Global Mobility strategy aims to benefit. The rare earth elements are composed of a group of seventeen metals that are each just as hard to pronounce as the next. They are becoming increasingly vital to a carbon free economy with applications for both electric vehicles and electrical efficiencies.
This week we will be talking about one of our three pillars and a key theme in our Global Mobility portfolio; the pillar centred around electrification of vehicles and a stock we believe is well-positioned to capitalise on the significant increase in lithium demand.
This week I write about a favourite topic and one that I believe will fundamentally drive investment markets over the next decade. We’ve all seen the headlines around electric vehicles, rare-earths and commodities heading higher more broadly, some of us have seen ourselves get a little ‘richer’ as a result. But let me delve a little deeper, why I’m personally invested and where I see this market heading.
Kevin Smith, of Delft Partners and portfolio manager of the TAMIM Asia Small Companies Fund, highlights one of the stocks in the Asia Small Companies portfolio. Japan Aviation has been a star performer recently with the portfolio up +13.5% CYTD.
Robert Swift takes a look at the electric vehicle phenomenon and takes a look at how his TAMIM individually managed account strategy is looking to take advantage of this increasingly potent thematic.
At TAMIM we are committed to educating investors on how best to manage their retirement futures.
