Why Morgan Stanley Thinks Carvana (CVNA) Stock Is Worth $1
Carvana (NYSE:CVNA) stock is falling on Monday after Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas hit the car seller with a harsh price prediction.
The Morgan Stanley analyst pulled his coverage of CVNA stock in a note Friday while also stating it could only be worth “as little as $1” per share. For the record, Jonas had previously held a price target of $430 back in March.
To put that in perspective, CVNA stock closed out trading on Friday at $8.76 per share. Investors will also note that the analyst consensus price target for shares sits at $47.
All of this comes as Carvana struggles after missing estimates in its latest earnings report. This is the result of the used-card market struggling with prices of vehicles dropping after a surge in value during the pandemic. Jonas claims this makes the market incredibly volatile, which is why he pulled coverage of the shares.
