China Slowing Down

The stock market ended mostly in the red zone on Thursday.

After a weaker-than-expected Chinese GDP, investors raised concerns about a possible global growth slowdown. After its peak acceleration earlier in 2021, the second-largest world’s economy expanded 7.9%. The growth is under the National Bureau of Statistics’ estimate, which expected an 8% growth. China was the first economy to experience and started to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, other countries can use it to predict their growth.

LG’s All-In Batteries

So what happened?

LG (Ticker: LGCOF) announced a $5.2 billion investment in its battery business. After shutting down its smartphones department, the Korean conglomerate started focusing its resources on more profitable areas. LG Energy and LG Chem together brought in more than $27 billion in revenue last year. Along with the whopping revenue, the subsidiaries sealed deals with multiple companies building a fleet of electric vehicles. Although many customers can think only of batteries for electric vehicles, LG also has factory-sized that can keep literal factories running for hours during an energy outage. LG business has the potential to solve companies’ and governments’ ambitious carbon-reduction goals for the future.
