Nomura says the positive impact of Nio’s improved deliveries could be offset by a tougher market

According to Nomura, winds from improvements in delivery could be restrained by increased competition for electric car maker Nio.

Analyst Frank Fan started covering the China-based automaker’s stock at a neutral price. Its $7.50 price target suggests US-listed stocks will be down about 3% in the next year from where they ended Friday’s session.

“We believe the company is on track to improve deliveries at 2H23F,” Fan said in a note to customers Sunday, describing deliveries in the first quarter as “lackluster.” “However, we expect NIO’s implied upside to be capped by intense competition and limited market share improvement in 2023F, based on the company’s 2023 guidance to deliver against the overall growth projections of the electric vehicle industry.”

Fan’s price target indicates further decline for the stock, which is already down more than 14% this year.

On Monday, the company cut prices and ended free battery swaps for new buyers despite management saying earlier this year that the company would not get into an electric vehicle “price war.” US stocks rose more than 7% in Monday’s session.
