Following a merger with special purpose acquisition company VectoIQ in June, Nicola released its first quarterly report as a public company. The company lost 16 cents per share during the quarter, and its only revenue came from solar installations. When the stock started trading in June, the company said it did not expect to generate revenue until 2021.

Nicola has attracted significant interest from investors since its debut, although the company has yet to start selling vehicles and generating regular revenue. After opening at $ 37.55 on June 4, the stock climbed to an all-time high of $ 93.99 on June 9. But since then the stock has steadily declined and closed 9.8% lower at $ 35.03 on Wednesday.

Ford once topped the company’s market valuation, despite the fact that Nicola had not yet produced a vehicle for sale.

Nevertheless, some analysts say that investors will have to wait a bit to realize the gains later.

“There are catalysts immediately ahead, and that’s why we recommend depositing shares in NKLA,” JP Morgan said in a note to clients on Wednesday.

According to FactSet data, as of Wednesday, the company is valued at $ 13.28 billion.
