Workhorse (NASDAQ:WKHS) has been one of the latest electric vehicle (EV) stocks to come crashing down. Since closing at more than $30 in mid-September, WKHS stock dropped 30%. And if InvestorPlace contributor Thomas Niel is correct, Workhorse may soon be testing a level of support around $15 by year end.
Would this be a bad thing and how should investors react? These are two questions that don’t have easy answers. It’s possible that the market is developing a level of EV fatigue. It’s also possible that 2021 may be a year for future growth.
Last month, I suggested that WKHS stock was a speculative buy if you were willing to look beyond the news. The problem is that the news keeps getting in the way. Workhorse recently received good news by way of a purchase order for 500 trucks. And then it just as quickly received disappointing news as the United States Postal Service announced a further delay in its decision on which company (or companies) will be manufacturing its fleet.
The Good and the Bad of the USPS Delay
A significant reason behind the growth of WKHS stock in 2020 is its potential contract with USPS. The USPS is looking to renovate its fleet of utility trucks as part of its Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) contract.
As many investors know, the decision on which firm(s) will be awarded the contract was pushed into the second quarter of 2021. On the surface, that’s really not a big deal. Workhorse announced that more than a third of its workforce being impacted by the virus.
And with a widespread vaccine being months away, it will likely be the second quarter of 2021 before we begin to remove the risk premium that many factory workers face.
