Shares of Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN) are enjoying a day in the green after a major influential figure picked up shares of the electric vehicle (EV) company. A quarterly 13F filing revealed that acclaimed investor George Soros had purchased 19.8 million shares of RIVN stock. The shares were purchased through Soros Fund Management, which is a family office. In total, the purchase amounted to roughly $2 billion. As a result, investors are seeking out RIVN stock price predictions today.
According to Whale Wisdom, RIVN stock is now Soros’ largest public equity holding. The EV maker accounts for a whopping 28% of Soros’ equity portfolio. In total, Soros Fund Management has 13F assets under management of $7.3 billion. Through this purchase, Soros demonstrates his bullish stance on RIVN stock.
However, Soros is currently sitting on a massive loss. As of Friday’s close, the initial $2 billion stake is now worth an estimated $1.17 billion. This is because Rivian has declined more than 35% year-to-date, with potential prospects hurt by the global chip shortage and supply chain issues. Moreover, the company also fell short of its 2021 production goal of 1,200 EVs by “a few hundred vehicles.” Additionally, Rivian is down more than 60% from its 52-week high of $179.
With Soros aboard the Rivian express, investors are wondering how Wall Street feels about the EV maker. Let’s jump right in to RIVN stock price predictions.
