Carvana Co (NYSE: CVNA) Investors Eye Phoenix Based Used Car Dealer Down Over 90% in Past 9 Months for Reversal – MicroCap Daily

Carvana Co (NYSE: CVNA) has come down a long way since the heady days when the stock was Wall Street’s preferred used car retailer and trading over $350 per share to current levels just over $25 per share down well over 90% over the past 9 months. The rapid fall from grace for the Arizona-based used car retailer is a mix of changing market condition as well as self-inflicted wounds. Analysts are also concerned about the company’s liquidity, increasing debt and growth, which this year is expected to be its slowest since becoming a public company in 2017. 

Carvana CEO Ernie Garcia III regularly tells Wall Street that “the march continues” in the company’s mission to become the largest and most profitable used car retailer in the world. While the stock has marched alright, it has marched in the wrong direction. the recent laying off of 2,500 employees had not helped the stock price either but many investors are beginning to see the stock at oversold and a suggest a bounce could be coming soon, how much farther it will drop before than is anyone’s guess.
