CCIV Stock Price: Lucid Motors – Churchill Capital IV (LCID) extends falls alongside peers

  • NASDAQ:LCID fell by 6.15% as the broader markets pulled back on Tuesday.
  • The electric vehicle sector slipped as Tesla reported mixed earnings.
  • Domestic EV Makers are struggling ahead of their earnings calls.

Update July 29: Lucid Group Inc (NASDAQ: LCID, formerly CCIV) has kicked off Thursday's trading session with a drop of over 1% to below $24. The electric-vehicle company is under pressure alongside other companies in its sector. It seems that Tesla's robust earnings initially lifted all boats before sinking them. Moreover, there are doubts that Washington would provide sufficient funds for encouraging people to buy electric vehicles. The infrastructure bill is somewhat limited in scope. Critical support awaits at the monthly low close of $22.20 and resistance is at $26.83, Monday's impressive closing level.

NASDAQ:LCID could not follow up its impressive first day of trading on Monday, as the broader markets tumbled, snapping a five day winning streak for the S&P 500. Shares of Lucid gave back its gains from Monday, as the luxury EV maker dropped by 6.15% to close the trading day at $25.18. Stocks that have recently completed their mergers with SPACs have experienced volatility, so it should come as no surprise to see Lucid go through this as well. Still, the hype surrounding Lucid as a threat to Tesla is growing by the day, especially after CEO Peter Rawlinson provided an update for production capacity and vehicle reservations on Monday.

Speaking of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), the industry leader reported its earnings after the market closed on Monday, to mixed results. The company did manage to top analyst expectations, and recorded its first ever quarter of $1 billion in revenues. The stock proceeded to fall by 1.95% on Tuesday, as a Needham analyst stated that the price of Tesla shares was already priced for perfection, with all of the growth already baked in. Generally, as Tesla goes, so do the rest of EV stocks, and that’s what happened on Tuesday as the entire sector finished in the red. 

LCID stock news
