Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN) stock is on the move Thursday following news of new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations coming to the U.S.

Rivian isn’t directly connected to this news as it comes from General Motors (NYSE:GM). The car company is teaming up with several major players in the market on a joint venture that will add 30,000 EV charging stations in the U.S.

While Rivian isn’t part of this joint venture, it will still benefit from these new charging stations. That’s due to them using Combined Charging System (CCS) and North American Charging Standard (NACS) connectors. Rivian is among the companies that announced it will switch to NACS connectors for EV charging.

RIVN Stock Rating

To go along with that EV charging news, Needham also reiterated its “buy” rating for the company’s shares today. For the record, the analysts’ consensus rating for RIVN stock is “moderate buy” based on 16 opinions.

Here’s what the Needham analyst said about RIVN stock in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:

“RIVN’s competitive advantages are shining brighter, with the company emerging as a demand creator when considering that the majority of its buyers have never previously purchased a pickup truck.”

RIVN stock is up slightly on Thursday morning and is up 57.3% since the start of the year.
