Ferrari stock has gained 108% since its IPO in late October 2015. And part of the luxury Italian brand’s success comes as the stock market reaches continued highs and demand for pricey Supercars grows.
“It happens to make cars, but it makes luxury goods for a select group of people who cherish belonging to an exclusive club for our users,” Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne said in an recent interview.
That dynamic allows Ferrari to charge high prices for its high-end luxury products. Both the cost of manufacturing a Ferrari and the value a driver finds in owning 1 justify the price.
