What’s Behind the New CVNA Stock Price Target?

Here’s what the RBC Capital analysts said about Carvana in a note to clients obtained by Investing.com:

“We believe any return to more meaningful unit growth will likely get fully if not overly extrapolated in the stock with additional amplification possible from the heavy short interest […] While we estimate CVNA owes roughly $7.4B over the next 7 years, we lay out recent improvements in per car profitability suggesting at least some unit growth likely gets them decent clearance to cover future debt costs.”
