Rivian upped its full-year 2023 production target to 52,000 units, an attainable target for the company. The RIVN share price rallied 5.35% higher yesterday after Barron's report detailing its upbeat performance hit the markets. Still, there is room for further gains as RIVN shares have fallen 5.28% in the past week. 

The recent decline in Rivian’s stock price was driven by the consensus production estimate for the company’s third quarter, which fell to 14,000 units from 15,000 units as we approach the end of the third quarter, where final production and delivery figures are just a  few days away. 

According to Barron’s, Baird analyst Ben Kallo issued a buy rating on Rivian stock Tuesday. He wrote: “Concerns regarding third-party reports of weakening demand have led to recent weakness in the stock, and we believe underlying demand remains strong with production improving.”

Kallo added: “We see Q3 deliveries as a near-term catalyst and expect sentiment to improve as Rivan continues to realize cost benefits from an improving supply chain and the use of in-house components.”

In other news, Rivian’s CEO, RJ Scaringe, recently promised to introduce leasing Rivian SUVs and pickups, marking a significant shift for the CEO, who was previously opposed to leasing the company’s vehicles. 

The company’s introduction of its Enduro driving units and LFP battery packs in Q2 2023 should be a critical catalyst for its future performance.
