Why the Bear Rating for RIVN Stock?

Stifel analyst Stephen Gengaro said the following about RIVN in a note to clients obtained by CNBC:

“Electric vehicle sales have faced stiff headwinds recently, driven by both macroeconomic factors (high interest rates, inflation, and recessionary worries) as well as EV specific headwinds including range anxiety, vehicle costs, model availability, and charging infrastructure. We believe these EV hurdles will shrink over the next few years, paving the way for sales growth.”
