Last month, Amazon began taking delivery of electric delivery vans. The e-commerce behemoth has ordered 100,000 of the vehicles for delivery by 2030. As the situation now stands, Rivian’s electric pickups will not be eligible for the $7,500 tax break in the Inflation Reduction Act for buyers of EVs. The company’s trucks are priced above the $80,000 ceiling. That is expected to change a few years down the road.
Of 16 analysts covering the stock, 11 have a Buy or Strong Buy rating and four more rate the shares at Hold. At a price of around $36.70 a share, the upside potential based on a median price target of $46.00 is 25.3%. At the high target of $108.00, the upside potential is 194%.
Analysts expect Rivian to report second-quarter sales of $337.96 million, up 256% sequentially. The company is expected to post an adjusted loss per share of $1.63, compared to a prior-quarter loss of $1.43. For the full 2022 fiscal year ending in December, analysts are forecasting an adjusted loss per share of $6.42 compared to a prior-year loss of $14.78 per share. Sales are forecast to reach $1.84 billion, up more than 3,200%.
Rivian is not expected to post a profit in 2022, 2023 or 2024. The enterprise value to sales multiple is 9.9 for 2022, dropping to 2.9 in 2023 and 1.5 in 2024. The stock’s post-IPO range is $19.25 to $179.47.
Since coming public in late September, Toast Inc. (NYSE: TOST) has seen its share price sink by nearly 64%. The company operates a cloud-based and digital technology platform for the U.S. and Irish restaurant industries. Since putting up its post-IPO low in mid-May, shares have added about 19%.
When Toast reported better-than-expected first-quarter results in May, it also raised full-year guidance. That probably accounts for the turnaround in the share-price direction. More growth this time around could give the shares an even bigger boost.
Of 16 brokerages covering the stock, 10 have a Buy or Strong Buy rating, and the rest rate the shares at Hold.
