Dear Trader,

Welcome to today’s edition of Wall Street Connected.

Markets opened higher this morning as hopes that the first COVID-19 vaccine could be available within weeks renewed bets of a swift economic recovery next year.

With electric vehicle stocks continuing to gain popularity and shareholder demand, stocks such as Nio Inc (NIO), Electrameccanica Vehicles (SOLO) and Workhorse Group (WKHS) are now up as much as 1,200% year-to-date.

In fact, those three China-based electric vehicle stocks are ranking #1, #10 and #20 respectively amongst financial professional searches from last week.

To further highlight Wall Street’s sentiment in electric vehicle stocks in recent trading sessions, you’ll notice Tesla Inc (TSLA) ranking #2 on top searches by financial professionals with $1B+ in assets under management from this past week as the electric vehicle giant recently received a $1,000 price target from Wedbush Securities.
