GreenPower Motor Is Surging – Here’s Why

Founded in 2010, GreenPower Motor Company is a Canadian electric-vehicle maker focused on making battery-powered buses and trucks affordable. Trading under the ticker GP, the stock has been surging lately. Shares more than tripled in the final two weeks of August, and, even after an 18% dip Thursday, the stock is up 860% year-to-date.

Retail investors are showing a lot of interest in GreenPower Motor Company despite the enormous gains already recorded. According to TrackStarIQ rankings , the stock ranks No. 1 for increasing overall traffic or engagement this week (compared to last week). The strong interest comes after the company priced an Initial Public Offering to have shares listed in the U.S. on the Nasdaq last week and after the company released earnings Monday.

Interest in electric-vehicle plays like GP, Tesla (TSLA), and Nio (NIO) has been an ongoing theme. TrackStarIQ rankings also show a spike in interest in UTStarcom (UTSI) and Priority Technology Holdings (PRTH) this week. Direct-selling companies, testing labs, and apparel stores are the industry groups with the most significant increase in traffic in the latest period.

Meanwhile, retail investors also seem curious about the outlook for the iPath Pure Beta Broad Commodity ETN (BCM), according to TrackStarIQ rankings. The fund is designed to offer exposure to commodities through a basket of exchange-traded futures while reducing volatility through an unleveraged approach. Pacer Trendpilot US Large-Cap ETF (PTLC) and Invesco Downside Hedged S&P 500 ETF (PHDC) are also seeing surging interest among exchange traded funds. Lastly, the ETF categories Japan equities, foreign, and small-cap equities are seeing a notable bump in interest as well.
