Nio remains in the eye of the beholder. To bulls, NIO stock offers one of the best growth stories in the market. To bears, NIO is another example of a bubble in electric vehicle stocks, and perhaps the market as a whole.
Even skeptics have to admit that this is a company in far better position than it was just a year and a half ago. But NIO stock also dipped below $2 in October 2019. It closed Monday above $53.
This still is a company facing significant competition, from state-owned rivals, Li, Xpeng, Tesla, and American companies in the country. Nio still doesn’t manufacture its own vehicles, which limits per-unit profitability.
And, as TSLA bears long have argued, automotive manufacturing isn’t all that attractive of a business. It’s capital-intensive, even if Nio’s manufacturing partner (JAC Motors) is supplying that capital. Profit margins are thin: Nio’s gross margin in the third quarter was just 12.9%, and that figure was considered to be a positive surprise.
Yet Nio now is valued by the market at $65 billion. That’s an enormous figure, one that assumes substantial success and, seemingly, relatively modest returns going forward.
Certainly, the market cap alone doesn’t make NIO stock a short by any means. But it’s reasonable to believe both that Nio as a company has had a heckuva year — and that Nio as a stock has run too far.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 76.0684. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 1 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 63.22. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 26 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 4 period(s) ago.
