Several EV charging stocks surged in mid-November following the signing of the trillion-dollar bipartisan infrastructure spending into law. President Joe Biden has allocated $7.5 billion to the development of 500,000 public electric vehicle charging stations. According to the Department of Energy’s estimates, 11,407 public EV charging stations will need to be installed each quarter for the next nine years to achieve the government’s target by 2030. The investment is expected to create more manufacturing jobs in the US over the next few years, as well as accelerate EV adoption.

Another catalyst fueling the growth of EV charging stocks is the tax incentives offered by the government. Rebates and incentives are credited to new EV buyers under the second component of the bipartisan infrastructure law known as Build Back Better Framework. Following the footsteps of the EV giant Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA), other EV manufacturers like General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F), and NIO Inc. (NYSE:NIO) are developing and installing public charging stations nationwide. 

The market for electric vehicle chargers was valued at $3.8 billion in 2019. According to a report, the industry will grow at a CAGR of 26.8% to $25.5 billion by 2027. This is mainly driven by government initiatives and EV charging companies entering the market to develop more efficient chargers.

Alger Mid Cap Focus Fund, in their Q1 2021 investor letter, mentioned Chargepoint Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CHPT) and shared their insights on the company. Here is what the fund said:

“ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. was among the top detractors from performance. ChargePoint provides a network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations globally. Like equities of many businesses geared to electric vehicles, ChargePoint shares underperformed in the first quarter of 2021 as part of a broad rotation away from high-growth technology companies with limited track records of performance as public companies. Longer-term, Charge Point could potentially serve as a bellwether company of the fast growing EV category and we believe it is an attractive way to gain exposure to EV adoption without betting on whether a particular EV brand will win in the marketplace. Additionally, EVs are a massive end market.”
