Without any news directly from the company, we’re still seeing heavy trading of LCID stock today. That has some 28 million shares changing hands as of this writing. To put that in perspective, the company’s daily average trading volume is closer to 25.4 million shares.

So without there being any news from Lucid Motors, why are shares of its stock heading higher today? It looks like holders of LCID stock have rival EV company Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN) to thank for the boost.

Rivian released its earnings report for the first quarter of 2022 after markets closed on Wednesday. That report saw it bringing in earnings per share of -$1.43 and revenue of $95 million. Those are mixed results compared to Wall Street’s estimates of -$1.45 per share on revenue of $130.5 million.

Even so, investors in RIVN stock are celebrating today. That’s due to the EV company maintaining its production guidance of 25,000 vehicles for the year. That’s reassuring as supply constraints have been weighing on traders’ minds lately.

With Rivian revealing it expects to meet production guidance, that could be rekindling hope in Lucid Motors. Holders of LCID stock are likely believing it will do the same. Also, sometimes stocks in the same markets will move in symphony with each other, which is also probably part of what’s happening today.

LCID stock is up 9.7% as of Thursday afternoon.
