FFIE’s future is still in peril

Copy link to section

Faraday Future has been one of the worst-performing electric vehicle (EV) companies in the world. It has been a cash incinerator that has burned over $3 billion in the past few years and is now running out of money. The most recent results showed that it had just $6.7 million in cash while its net loss stood at over $70 million.

A lot has happened in the past few months. Most notably, Nasdaq has decided to delist it from the exchange since its stock has remained below $1 for long. Also, it has not published its annual report, commonly known as 10K.

Therefore, the ongoing Faraday Future stock surge is happening as day traders continue pumping highly shorted companies like GameStop, AMC, and MicroCloud Hologram. As we saw in 2021, stocks that surge for meme reasons tend to drop after the bull run ends.

Fundamentally, it is hard to see Faraday Future’s future. First, it is in the electric vehicle industry that is going through major challenges as growth stalls. That explains why most EV companies like Tesla, Nio, and XPeng have tumbled.

Second, it is unclear whether there is enough demand for Faraday Future’s FF 91 vehicle, which has a sticker price of over $300k. In contrast, the most expensive Tesla Cybertruck goes for less than $150k. $300k for an EV from an untested company is a bit too much.

Third, Faraday Future has run out of money. As mentioned, it has less than $10 million in cash and is still burning substantial sums of money.

Turning to the 4H chart, we see that the FFIE share price has been in a consolidation phase in the past few months. This performance is a sign that it was in the accumulation phase of the Wyckoff Method.

It then moved to the mark-up phase of this strategy where demand usually outweighs the supply. In most periods, the stock then moves to the distribution phase of the Wyckoff method followed by a markdown, where it erases the gains.
