2 Electric Vehicle Stocks Down More Than 15% in the Past Week

: ARVL | Arrival News, Ratings, and Charts

ARVL – 2020 was not only the year of COVID, but many also believe it was the year of the electric vehicle. EV stocks went through the roof as investors considered a world without gas powered vehicles. However, that momentum has not continued into 2021, where EV stocks have shown a lot of volatility. Arrival Limited (ARVL) and Canoo (GOEV) are two such stocks that are down 15% over the past week. But should investors avoid them? Read more to find out.

Electric vehicle stocks have been quite volatile since the start of the pandemic. Money initially shifted to specific green, forward-thinking industries such as EVs. However, the bull run didn’t last forever.

If you pay close attention to the EV industry, you are aware that it has the potential to be somewhat of a rollercoaster ride. It is not uncommon for stocks in this segment to fluctuate 5% to 10% weekly.

Arrival Limited (ARVL) and Canoo (GOEV) are two such volatile EV stocks. Each of these EV-makers has suffered quite a tumultuous slide in the past week. Let’s take a look at whether these two are oversold or if the declines are justified.

Arrival Limited (ARVL)

Arrival is not just the title of a bad science fiction movie. It is also the name of an electric vehicle-maker. ARVL’s EVs are somewhat unique in that they are made with the company’s innovative and patented technology. Previously known as CIIG Merger Corporation, ARVL is headquartered in London, UK.

Canoo (GOEV)

GOEV makes groundbreaking EVs with a comparably versatile platform. GOEV’s customers use EVs for business and personal purposes. Located in New York, NY, GOEV previously conducted business under the name of Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corporation.

GOEV has an overall grade of F and a Strong Sell rating in our POWR Ratings system. The stock has grades of F in the Quality and Growth components and Ds in the Sentiment and Value components. You can find out how GOEV fares in the rest of the components, including Momentum and Stability, by clicking here.

Of the 62 stocks in the Auto & vehicle Manufacturers industry, GOEV is ranked in the bottom 10%, slotting in at 54th. GOEV is clearly trending in the wrong direction, dropping from $11 in June to $8 in July and all the way down to its current price of $6.35 in mid-August. In fact, GOEV is trending toward its 52-week low of $6.15. If valuations on EV speculative investments are cut even more, GOEV could face additional selling pressure.

It is also quite disturbing that GOEV reported a net loss of around $90 million for the prior year. The bottom line is it is simply too risky to invest in GOEV during its pre-revenue position. 

ARVL shares were trading at $10.76 per share on Thursday morning, down $0.15 (-1.37%). Year-to-date, ARVL has declined -61.74%, versus a 18.03% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
