NIO: Maintaining At Neutral, Fair Q4 And Some To Like In 2022


  • NIO's November deliveries reached a record of 10,878 units, pushing just above September's high as the manufacturer regained momentum.
  • Q4 is expected to see ~23,500 to 25,500 units delivered, representing flat q/q growth in a relatively lackluster end to FY21.
  • FY22 is expected to see multiple catalysts arise, such as three new models, five new countries entered, and more production capacity.
  • However, these moves open the door for more competitive pressure and execution risk, but revenue and delivery growth could see some upside.

NIO (NYSE:NIO) wrapped up November on a decent note, reaching a new record high for deliveries as the manufacturer bounced back off of a very weak October. Q3 results were solid, and management highlighted an upbeat

Reading is never enough profile picture
I read everything about Nio ,there is nowhere that it is going ever to be delisted from USA.
This are rumors for shorters to make money.
And a buying opportunity from me.
Bios is a beloved stock of China.they want it to go higher and higher to prove they are best than Tesla.
Read all the articles at the Asian markets.
Nio is in formoula E .
Nio is loved in Europe.
Mark my words:shorters rare using the alibaba fears to make money.
Don’t fall in their trap..enjoy the way up.
What do you think about today's news that DIDI is delisting from NY exchange because:

" “I think China has made it clear they no longer want technology companies listing over in U.S. markets, because it brings them under the jurisdiction of U.S. regulators,” Aaron Costello, regional head of Asia at Cambridge Associates, said Friday after the news broke. "

Is nio a tech company?

@SavvyOrBroke it definitely could have some ramifications for NIO, as the company, just like DiDi, does not have a dual-listing structure, with both simply NYSE listed. China could push for NIO to either list on HK in a dual-structure like XPeng or delist from NYSE to pursue HK listing
Few appreciate the difficultiesm of mass production of an automobile. Remember Tesla's ramp-up issues? The big risk is not JAC, the NIO subcontractor incrementally adding capacity, but NIO's own attempt at manufacturing later in Q2. Can easily slip 1-2Qtrs. NIO isn't even in the top 15 list of Ev cars in Norway! BYD will sell 1500 premium SUVs there by years end versus Nio at 100? Trying to do too many things at once is a classic "rookie" management mistake.
A very fair evaluation of the risks and ops. Many risks (international, supply chain, etc.) are in common with any aggressive expanding company. Management's ability to keep all the 'balls in the air' is the key variable to me.

Best NIO article I've read in awhile. If anyone went through MBA business simulations, you know there's a right amount of projects and expansions to undertake each year. I agree there's risk NIO may not execute well with so many new models and expansions.

ET5 is risking pushing into a market segment occupied by Tesla, Xpeng, and BYD. Tesla Model Y and Xpeng models have long demand queues, back-ordered till Feb/March. NIO updated factory to 20k/month capacity and still only sold 10k in November. I give NIO less than even chance to succeed if NIO pushes into lower price market segment next year.
