Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is performing the impossible. They’ve mounted the legitimate attack by electric vehicles (EVs) about the dominance of internal combustion engine (ICE) yet. The amounts continue to be infinitesimal but the tendency is clear. There’s a solid consensus among the business pros that the majority of us will probably be driving EVs later on. Nio (NYSE:NIO) and NIO stock are profiting from the tide which TSLA created.

More recently, we saw the development of Nikola (NASDAQ:NKLA) as yet another high profile firm and possible competition from the EV area. All three stocks are up more than 200% Nominal.
So far it’s been a crazy ride really trading NIO stock. The price action only yesterday was proof of that. It actually gained notoriety back in February of 2019 whenever the TV series 60 Minutes aired a special report regarding the business during prime time . Regrettably that dealt with a giant blow into the bulls because following the first spike, the stock dropped from nearly $11 to $1.20 in only weeks.
Following a difficult slog also and 15 months, nevertheless, the bulls buried that phantom. They not only regained that large but exceeded the first public offering spike, putting a new all-time large.
Certainly the bulls are breathing a sigh of relief, but the issue now is when they could sustain the momentum that time around. Today’s message is one of caution, therefore I’m more bearish than bullish.
I guarantee you that I’m not a hater, but I really do have a problem with the stock price action. My last couple articles with this stock were favorable, and following the one that I shared in March that the stock rallied 500%. I’m a realist and I’m attentive when the comparative performance out-paces the fluctuations in the truth. The opinion flip in NIO stock arrived in closeness from Tesla, not from improvements in Nio’s outlook.
Nio Stock Charged For Action Shortly

The short term price activity of overdue favors the bulls since they’re purchasing the dips and placing higher-lows. However, there’s also a lower-high tendency happening, so the trading range is tightening . Normally when that occurs the stock assembles energy and will have to fix itself in a large movement. The management of this transfer is yet to be understood so it’s ideal to watch to your causes.
The bulls’ very first chance sits just above $13 as well as better over $13.60 each share. If they’re able to do this, NIO stock can muster another $3 out there.
Conversely, if the bears could breach the ascending fashion and close below $10.80 then they could perhaps shut both open gaps at $9.40 and $8. There’ll be support across the way however, the bearish pattern is that there if they need it. As much as I enjoy technical transactions, I guess that the true move will likely come on the rear of basic details. In a couple of weeks, NIO reports earnings and direction will have the opportunity to inform Wall Street on its own condition of affairs.
There have been enormous macroeconomic risks so that there are high likelihood of disappointment. Normally the absolute results don’t really matter as it’s the expectations that induce traders to behave on headlines. Not too many investors anticipate great things in this a lousy atmosphere.
Tesla Success Isn’t Transferable Without Cause
The short term response to earnings is obviously more guessing than just investing. Not the company CEO will tell us how the stock will exchange following the report. Investors are finicky and they don’t care about the absolutes. If at the point NIO stock continues to maintain this large, it might then be exposed to selling the information. The Tesla earnings were excellent and it failed to maintain its greens because it dropped 18% by the spike. I fear that these elevated levels of expectations may lead to similar reactions for NIO.
I don’t mean to dis the firm, but Tesla is Tesla, and its achievement isn’t transmittable by osmosis into other EVs. There’s a good deal of that happening nowadays, particularly with NIO and Nikola.
If investors are lovers of that which Tesla is doing that they need to just put money into TSLA stock. The greatest factor of its success is Elon Musk. When I’ve earnings in NIO stock I’d shield them by selling covered calls or purchasing some set choices. Doing the two makes the security plan almost free.
Internal Combustion Engines Get the Edge finished Electric
From the conflict between ICE and EVs the border belongs to the noisy group. The coronavirus catastrophe caused a serious collapse in oil and demand took a large tumble. This is vital because more economical oil weakens the argument for switching to electrical propulsion. Add to it that the quarantine gave birth to the work-from-home concept and it might become irreversible, need for driving is decreasing.
Additionally, the recent giants such as Ford (NYSE:F) and General Motors (NYSE:GM) will fight hard to get EV market share. These variables new and continuing are headwinds to all automobile makers, particularly the more recent contenders such as Nio.
