This Is Big News
There’s good reason investors are sending Northern Genesis Acquisition Corp stock through the roof this morning. With the merger, the company and its investors will be stepping into the electric vehicles market. That’s big news.
Think about it, Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. That’s big news for any clean transportation or clean energy play. After all, Biden has been very outspoken with his views toward global warming and the need to reduce the global carbon footprint.
As a result, NGA and Lion will benefit greatly from future regulatory changes set into place by the Biden Administration. This includes potential grants, tax cuts, and incresed demand as a result of tax perks for consumers who take part in the transition to clena, green transportation and energy.
