- NYSE:CCIV fell by 3.82% as the broader EV market dropped to start the month.
- Record vehicle deliveries in China still weren't enough to turn the EV sector positive on Thursday.
- Lucid Motors provides more details about its Manhattan studio.
Update July 2: Churchill Capital Corp IV (NYSE: CCOV) has been extending its falls on Friday, shedding over 3.5% and slipping below the $27 level. The broader electric vehicle sector is on the back foot. Ahead of Churchill's merger with Lucid Motors – which will trigger a ticker change to LCID – shares have been taking two steps forward, one step back. Is the current correction a buying opportunity? It is essential to note that trading will be closed on Monday due to the long Independence Day holiday, and that may cause last-minute jitters.
NYSE:CCIV continued its recent trend of following up a big green day with a small red day, as the anticipation builds for the Lucid Motors merger as we begin July. On Thursday, CCIV fell by 3.82% to close the session at $27.72. The dip was most likely due to broader EV sector sentiment rather than any specific company news from Lucid. The stock pulled back from its near 10% gain on Wednesday, and recorded a higher than average daily trading volume to start the month.
Even though Chinese EV giants Nio (NYSE:NIO) and XPeng (NYSE:XPEV) both reported record delivery numbers in June, both stocks tumbled during Thursday’s session. The concern is most likely due to both companies barely meeting full-year delivery forecasts, while further logistical issues could arise with the ongoing global chip shortage. The EV sector now awaits the second quarter delivery numbers from industry leader Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), which are anticipated to top 200,000. The numbers show just how far Lucid has to go to be considered a competitor, as its 2021 deliveries are capped at just over 500, even though reservations have hit 10,000.
