Citi sees three catalysts in three months for shares of NIO
Citi analyst Jeff Chung views NIO Inc.'s Q3 results as generally in-line with consensus and says its Q4 revenue only needs to achieve 70% quarter-over-quarter growth in order to meet his fiscal 2018 forecast, which he believes "carries very high visibility now." The analyst sees three catalysts for the shares in the next months. The first being December ES8 sales and production run-rate accelerating to 30,000 units from November's 23,000-25,000 units. The second being NIO announcing ES6 order backlog status between the end of fiscal 2018 and January 2019. And the third being the company's Q4 earnings report in February 2019. In a best case scenario, Chung expects Q4 revenue up 85% to 110% quarter-over-quarter. He keeps a Neutral rating on NIO Inc. with a $7.20 price target.
