    Default RIVN - Rivian

    I love the fact that Tesla launches it's ugly cyber truck, Rivian rallies 7%.
    Much better product.

    Musk at times seems to get stuck on one idea & won't let go of it. His truck looked ugly five years as a concept & nothing has changed that.

    Rivian has also just entered into some pretty hefty agreements to ramp up production as well a new leasing option.

    Musk would be smart to buy them out.
    Hopefully you find my posts helpful, but in no way should they be construed as advice. Make your own decision.

    Can't imagine buying this over STLA.

    That's a good call. I had lost track of this company. Amasing how much more publicity Tesla & Rivian (to a lesser extent) get, probably as they are American.

    Rivian could actually be an okay play at this price. Definitely speculative though.

    Still STLA is a better stock IMO.

    This seems out of character for you ValueNZ, what attracts you to Rivian?

    2023 10-K Sec Filing
    Monthly SP down 94% from ATH

    We are a growth stage company with limited operating history and a history of losses. We expect to incur significant expenses and continuing losses for the foreseeable future and may not be able to achieve or maintain profitability in the future.

    We have incurred net losses since our inception, including net losses of $4.7 billion, $6.8 billion, and $5.4 billion for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2022 and 2023, respectively. We do not expect to be profitable for the foreseeable future as we continue to invest in our business, build capacity, and ramp up operations, and there is no assurance that we will ever achieve or be able to maintain profitability in the future.

    This is not something that I own or intend on owning, but a $9.87 billion for a company that is growing its revenue as quickly as they are seems like it could work out.

    They have a fairly strong balance sheet so they can withstand some of those losses whilst they grow revenues.

    This is definitely not a sure thing, owning shares is definitely speculative, but I can definitely see why someone would hold a small amount in their portfolio at this price.
