WKHS Stock Price - Workhorse Group Inc kicks into high gear on news of GM and Nikola partnership ($23.62 / +10.48%)

  • NASDAQ:WKHS hits new all-time high on Tuesday despite NASDAQ dipping for third straight session.
  • General Motors and Nikola strike a deal that re-ignites investor interest in electric trucks.
  • Workhorse continues to be the first movers in last-mile delivery space for zero-emission vehicles.
  • S&P 500 Futures fade pullback from monthly low, eye more clues for ECB, Brexit talks

NASDAQ:WKHS has spiked for the second straight trading session despite the broader markets in the midst of a correction. Workhorse Group officially hit a new all-time high on Tuesday at $23.85 before settling back down and closing the day at $21.38. It has been an eventful year for Workhorse investors as the stock has tailed the likes of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) and Nio (NYSE:NIO) during the recent surge of the electric-vehicle sector. Shares are now trading well above the 60-day and 200-day moving averages and are up over 523% from the 52-week low price of $1.32.

The recently announced partnership between General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) and Nikola (NASDAQ:NKLA) sent the electric truck industry into a frenzy. Nikola shares were up over 40% on Tuesday after General Motors announced it will be Nikola’s strategic manufacturing partner – giving GM an 11% stake in the electric truck manufacturer. Nikola is said to be preparing to launch its Badger truck production by the end of 2022 – putting them in direct competition with Workhorse and the Tesla Semi for the future.

WKHS has jumped nearly 20% from the start of the day on Friday after a separate agreement with Hitachi America (OTCMKTS:HTHIY) will give Workhorse access to Hitachi’s operations and supply chain. The deal marks a major strategic leap for Workhorse as it attempts to broaden its reach throughout America without the brand names of GM or Tesla as its backer. Workhorse still has the first wheels on the ground advantage and investors should hope that they continue to carve out a niche in the last-mile delivery industry before the likes of Nikola and Tesla hit the roads.
