Nio got a rating upgrade from UBS analyst Paul Gong.
Gong raised his rating on the electric-car maker to neutral from sell. The analyst also hiked his share-price target to $16.30 from $1.
Gong cited the global demand for electric vehicles and Nio’s performance behind his optimism. Operational improvements in 2020 around sales volume was “well ahead of our previous expectations,” he wrote.
However, Gong did express concerns over what he perceives is Nio’s “elevated” valuation. “Limited visibility on growth, execution and competition mean a wide range of outcomes are still possible,” Gong noted.
