|Abstract:||This thesis investigates the relationship between asset prices and their sensitivity on electric vehicles adoption using methods of a factor analysis with
portfolio sorts and Fama-French three factor model. We test whether there is
a monotonic relationship between an asset sensitivity to electric vehicles adoption changes. For the factor construction a data set with monthly car sales
data grouped by model type is used. The study provides an empirical evidence
that there is a significant monotonic relationship between sensitivity with asset
sensitivity on electric vehicles adoption and stock price performance. The analysis confirms that stocks with higher sensitivity to electric vehicles adoption
earn lower returns.
