Nikola Stock Surges over 20% Ahead of Earnings Call
Nikola stock price rallied yesterday as analysts called a “Short-Term Buy” recommendation ahead of the company’s earnings report.
What Happened? Deutsche Bank issued a “Short-Term Buy” rating to Nikola, even as its long-term outlook for the company remains “Hold.” This resulted in a 10% rally in the share price during Monday’s trading hours. Executive Chairman Trevor Milton’s update on Nikola’s balance sheet also helped drive the price.
Emmanuel Rosner, an analyst at Deutsche Bank, added the EV start-up to the bank’s short-term “Catalyst Call Buy List.” Nikola’s revenue isn’t the main attraction for tomorrow’s report. Instead, the company could use the earnings call to provide updates on the much-awaited BEV trucks while also sharing the latest developments on its hydrogen refueling network and the Badger pickup.
Nikola has had a bumpy ride recently. The recent announcement that the company’s warrants would be available for redemption into shares saw the stock price nose-dive. However, it seems the excitement about electric vehicles is back. Executive Chairman Trevor Milton tweeted Nikola has $881M in cash and an additional $60M in warrants.
Market Reaction: Nikola’s stock price rose 21.63% to close at $36.49. The share price is up 1.15% before trading hours.
