First the fraud allegations on the part of the shortseller Hindenburg Research, then the withdrawal of founder Trevor Milton, then disappointing deal with GM and now the Bosch sale: the news situation around Nikola has deteriorated drastically in recent months. NKLA stock price may go below $15 if bulls fail to defend $18 mark.
