NIO stock is down on this news during after hours more than 5%. But why is stock price going down when results are good?
During afternoon Jim Cramer stated that NIO is just a concept, not a company. This statement was not accepted well in NIO community.
@NioGlobal reports today, but investors shouldn't be too worried about what the company has to say right now, according to @JimCramer. "If it is the next Tesla, that means you don't need to care about the short-term. For the moment, it's more of a concept than a company." pic.twitter.com/axd6hVIxZl— Mad Money On CNBC (@MadMoneyOnCNBC) November 17, 2020
NIO is doing a number of things that other successful companies do, like TESLA (TSLA). Nio is adopting best practices, and now you are seeing the results. Best practices is corporate lingo for establishing a set of clear, consistent procedures that are adhered to companywide. Not limited to EVs, many companies poach their best practices from better-performing competitors. That is why people like to say how Nio is Tesla of China.
So, while I do think this is not the best week to invest in NIO, this is a long term play.
