Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) has come a long way since its start as a small race-car builder 72+ years ago.
In October of Y 2015, Ferrari’s IPO on the NYSE valued the company at about $10-B. Now almost 4 years later, the company’s market cap has more than 2X’d, to $27-B. This makes the iconic Italian carmaker one of the most valuable and recognizable brands in the world. Its Prancing-horse service mark is synonymous with sex, money, and the good life.
Ferrari was not always the global luxury brand that is now being traded in Milan and New York. The company’s early days as a maker of racing cars were humble. And its success over the years drew takeover interest, and later rivalry, from Ford (NYSE:F) before Ferrari became part of Fiat and eventually Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU).
In Y 1947, Ferrari launched the 125S. And since the non-compete agreement with Alfa Romeo had lapsed, this was the 1st car to carry the Ferrari name and badge, establishing the Aristocratic Supercar maker we know today.
Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
The iconic Italian Supercar manufacturer claimed the title according to the latest Brand Finance Global 500 2019 report launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
HeffX-LTN overall technical outlook for RACE is Very Bullish, overhead resistance now stands at 165.25, and support at 160.01, all Key indicators are still Very Bullish in here. Ferrari finished at 161.42, +0.56 Friday in NY.
