Recently, analysts’ target price for Ferrari stock has risen from 79.30 to 93.65. But, Ferrari stock is racing far ahead of analysts’ expectations.
Below is a look at some Key reasons for this investor optimism, as follows:
In Y 2016, Ferrari’s V12 engine car sales were lower than in the prior year. This decline concerned investors because cars with V12 engines generate higher profits for Ferrari than V8 engine cars.
Then in 1-H of Y 2017, Ferrari revived its V12 car sales, reporting a 6.4% and 5.3% Y-Y rise in its global shipments in Q’s 1 and 2.
A continuation of this positive trend in Ferrari’s shipments keeps investors’ optimism alive. That along with its most recognized luxury brand, its F1 racing success and various other important related revenue streams.
The Chart below show the success of Ferrari in the financial market, and of course as the dominant in the Super and HyperSuper car arena.
