: IDEX | Ideanomics Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

IDEX – The tech industry’s continued growth and rising popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) have made Wall Street analysts extremely optimistic about the upside potential of tech stocks Ideanomics (IDEX) and CleanSpark (CLSK). These companies are expanding their operations to capitalize on the industry tailwinds. So please read on for more insight into their prospects.

The ongoing digital transformation of most industries and increasing use of advanced technologies are driving the growth of the technology industry. And the industry’s solid growth prospects are attracting great interest in tech stock by investors. Indeed, the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite hit its all-time high of 14,649.11 on July 5.

Furthermore, the fledgling  electric vehicle (EV) industry has been incentivizing tech companies to venture into this space. With major countries announcing their plans to phase out fossil-fuel-powered vehicles over the next couple of decades, multiple capital investments, and favorable policies, companies manufacturing products and services that facilitate EVs should grow significantly.

So, notwithstanding short-term headwinds created by a current  semiconductor shortage, Wall Street expects the EV and ancillary industries to grow significantly. Wall Street analysts expect tech stocks Ideanomics, Inc. (IDEX) and CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK), which have  substantial exposure to the EV industry, to rally more than 160% in the coming months.

The acquisition should allow IDEX to strengthen its position in the EV industry.

On June 3, Twin Transit Authority (TTA) in Washington completed installation of WAVE’s (a subsidiary of IDEX) high-power wireless charging system for electric buses. This marks a new addition to IDEX’s  growing list of transit fleet charging stations.
