Nomura says the positive impact of improving deliveries for Neo could be offset by a tighter market

According to Nomura, tailwinds from delivery improvements could be moderated by increased competition for electric vehicle maker Neo.

Analyst Frank Fan maintained neutral coverage on the China-based automaker’s stock. His $7.50 price target suggests the U.S.-listed stock could fall about 3% over the next year from where it closed Friday’s session.

“We believe the company is on track to improve deliveries in 2H23F,” Fan said in a note to clients on Sunday, also calling first-quarter deliveries “low.” “That said, we expect NIO’s implied upside to be driven by intense competition and limited market share improvement in 2023F, based on the company’s 2023 guidance for deliveries and the EV industry’s overall growth outlook.”

The fan price target indicates further downside for the stock, which is already down more than 14% this year.

On Monday, the company cut prices for new buyers and ended free battery replacements, despite management saying earlier this year that it would not enter an electric vehicle “price war.” US stocks rose more than 7% in Monday’s session.
