Beam Global (BEEM) is the producer of solar-powered products and proprietary technology solutions in the United States and internationally. The company provides electric vehicle autonomous renewable charger products, drone charging, outdoor media and branding, and energy security.
BEEM recently laid the foundations for its Outdoor Media Business Unit, which has the potential to become the company’s biggest and most profitable growth engine. And with President-elect Joe Biden’s proposal to deploy 550,000 public EV charging stations and usher in a new era for the electrification of transportation, BEEM is well-positioned to grow exponentially heading into 2021.
BEEM’s efforts to produce a first-of-its-kind electric aircraft should also help it stand out in the rapidly growing EV market.
A growing nationwide trend with respect to EV charging stations, along with the exceptional demand the company is seeing for scalable EV charging infrastructure solutions, have allowed BEEM to gain 1554.9% over the past year. This impressive performance, combined with several other factors, has helped BEEM earn a “Strong Buy” rating in our proprietary rating system.
