As can be seen above, the 6-month change from the beginning of 2020 saw poor stock value growth for NIO, with little volatility; possibly due to a relative lack of intraday/intraweek trader interest, or lack of predictability discouraging trade positions, the future of NIO’s stock price was irresolute. This is unsurprising, due to contradictions in NIO’s 12/31/2019 income statement: total revenue showed strong growth of 36.73%, but was outstripped by a 42.30% increase in the total cost of revenue.

Further, an increasingly negative EBITDA and declining gross profit were offset by NIO’s early stages of development; only developing its first EV model in 2016. In a capital-intensive industry requiring high initial capital input, with profits not usually seen until years later, the lack of bearish movement in NIO’s stock price – despite the statistics – was understandable.
