Bank on government mandated climate change transition to EVs

NASDAQ:DCFC   Tritium DCFC Limited
Tritium DCFC saw a large increase in valuation after the US president mentioned the company in a press conference.

Market participants clearly acted irrational after the announcemnt as shown in the chart. DCFC reached the $20 range and has since sold off to the $10 range.

This reversion back to an efficient market valuation is a buying opportunity. I believe there will be more announcements in the future that will induce another irrational buying event in combination with efficient market increases in valuation as the take up of EVs increases.

Increasingly governments are being pressured into reducing carbon emissions in the name of climate change. As a result, net zero 2040 targets will make fossil fuel combustion engines a large target for government intervention. DCFC is positioned to capitalise on this transition due to proprietary technology that currently takes approx. 10 minutes to fully charge a car with a range of 350 KM.

This transition will also reduce reliance on the Middle East for energy. So you can see why this transition is a good investment by governments, particularly ones who do not have sovereign oil production capacity.

NOTE: The UK and Europe have enacted significant legislation that forces this transition. For example, new homes in the UK are required to have EV charging ports and petrol car sales will be banned from 2030.

Betting with the government is typically a sure win, particularly when the new technology can disrupt a legacy market with new technology.

Media announcement February 8, 2022 — In an effort to increase sales, localize production and expand electric vehicle (“EV”) charging infrastructure in the United States, Tritium DCFC Limited (“Tritium” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: DCFC), a global leader in direct current (“DC”) fast chargers for EVs, has announced plans for expansion of its American footprint with a new manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (“Bipartisan Infrastructure Law”) is expected to provide $7.5 billion of investment for deploying a network of 500,000 EV chargers along highway corridors in the United States. This network is intended to facilitate long-distance travel, as well as shorter distance travel within communities, to provide convenient charging options and encourage the electrification of transportation across the country.
