However, today’s decline in QS stock has left some analysts perplexed as the company’s losses narrowed greatly in the fourth quarter of 2021. The maker of solid-state batteries that are used in electric vehicles posted a wider-than-expected quarterly loss of $70.8 million, or 16 cents a share. That is down significantly from $1.3 billion, or $4.42 a share, in 2021.
However, Wall Street had called for a net loss of 10 cents a share.
But is everything all that bad? QuantumScape promised to hit several key milestones this year, including the delivery of samples using its proprietary cell format. And, QuantumScape said it has well over $1.4 billion of liquidity available to drive its operations forward.
QS stock finished trading yesterday at $16.99 a share, down more than 20% year to date. Where will it go next?
