Lucid Motors (NASDAQ: LCID) ability to target high-end consumers with their luxury sedans, SUVs, crossovers, pickup, and coupes, has attracted another analyst firm to issue a bull rating. Namely, on September 12, R.F. Lafferty & Co. analyst Jaime Perez issued the rating, pointing to the firm’s strong order book.
Over the past five days, LCID enjoyed an almost 10% jump, mostly due to picking up another bull rating and the analyst setting a price of $19 as a target for the shares. Furthermore, there seem to be speculations that Lucid has managed to ramp up car production to 40-50 cars per day; however, the data doesn’t come from official sources.
The short-term runup in the stock could be set to continue, though the markets are on shaky legs at the moment; therefore, it is debatable how long the rally may actually last.
