Nio Inc falls further after cautionary words from Morgan Stanley

  • NYSE: NIO fell by 3.31% during Wednesday’s trading session. 
  • Morgan Stanley cautions investors about slow delivery growth in January. 
  • The EV sector falls further as the NASDAQ reaches correction territory.

NYSE: NIO hit its lowest price level so far in 2022 on Wednesday, and according to a major Wall Street analyst, things could continue to look worse for the company. Shares of Nio fell by a further 3.31% and closed the volatile day at $28.63. It has been doom and gloom for Nio shareholders so far this year, as the stock is now 14.5% off of its closing price from 2021. Nio isn’t alone in this pain either as the NASDAQ index fell a further 1.15% as it officially entered correction territory following a 10% drop from its recent all-time highs.

Adding salt to the wound of Nio investors on Wednesday was Morgan Stanley’s cautionary words for the company’s January deliveries. The firm stated that the first month or two of the year have traditionally been slow for Chinese EV makers, due to the Chinese New Year Holidays. Adding to this has been recent lockdowns in China due to the spread of the Omicron variant. Perhaps the first delivery numbers of 2022 won’t be as impressive as the previous few months, so Morgan Stanley is preparing Nio shareholders for some potential further downside in the stock price.
