Here’s how much Lucid stock is down since its IPO

Here’s how much Lucid stock is down since its IPO

In a significant moment for the electric vehicle (EV) industry, Lucid Motors (NASDAQ: LCID) became a publicly listed company in July 2021, raising $4.6 million through its initial public offering (IPO). 

The company opened its first trading day, July 26, 2021, at $25.24, but it closed slightly down at $23.72 apiece. 

Despite the minor dip, Lucid attracted strong investor interest at the IPO, which gained further traction in the coming months. In November 2021, the automaker saw an all-time high on the Nasdaq stock exchange of $57.75 per share. 

However, the stock embarked on a sharp downward trajectory, losing a significant amount of its value since going public. 

LCID down 80% since the IPO

At press time on September 28, 2023, LCID shares are trading at $5.46 apiece. This is nearly 80% lower than its July 2021 IPO price and more than 90% down compared to its November 2021 peak.

The EV stock gained more than 2.8% in Wednesday trading and over 2% across the past week. 

On a monthly basis, however, LCID plummeted over 10%, losing around $1.3 billion in market cap, according to TradingView data. The automaker is also down around 21.5% year-to-date.

Why is Lucid down in 2023?

LCID’s shares continued tumbling in 2023 due to a combination of factors, primarily notably disappointing earnings and production reports.

The company said its Q2 production dropped significantly from the previous 3 months while deliveries stayed flat amid pressures from supply chain constraints and an EV market pricing war started by industry leader Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA). 

Earlier this week, the stock crashed to an all-time low of below $5. Analysts attributed the stock’s recent declines to the company’s decision to leave its comfort zone by eyeing a move to China, high starting EV prices, and a niche market segment.
