Rivian preferred over Lucid by 87% of surveyed investors, says Morgan Stanley
On February 3, 2022, noting that the current market caps of Rivian (RIVN) at approximately $60B and Lucid Group (LCID) at about $50B are “of a similar magnitude,” Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas surveyed the firm’s clients about which they preferred to own right now and found that among the 46 responses he received that 87% of respondents selected Rivian. The market appears to be making the case that Lucid can scale its award-winning Air into new segments and far lower price points, but the stock is trading closer to its $40 bull case and his own “much more conservative expectations” drive his Underweight rating and $16 price target on Lucid shares. Jonas said he casts his own vote for Rivian, which ranks second after only his “Top Pick” Ferrari (RACE) in his U.S. Auto stock rankings. Rivian now offers 130% upside to his $147 price target, added Jonas, who keeps an Overweight rating on the shares.
