The next earnings announcement is scheduled for November 8, 2023. It's important to know that the latest news points towards mixed sentiment.

Looking at the technical side, the 50-day moving average for NIO stock is $9.73, with the 200-day moving average reading $9.83. This indicates a mildly bearish trend in recent months, as the current price is below both these averages.

The discounted cash flow (DCF) is currently at $19.74, which is significantly higher than the current trading price, hinting at undervaluation.
Stock Price Prediction
Based on the presented data, a certain level of price fluctuation can be expected in the next trading day (October 24, 2023) due to high volatility (as suggested by the ATR). The analysts' target prices range suggests a long-term potential for the stock, with a high target of $83 and a median target of $31.3.
Weighing both fundamentals and technicals, along with the prevailing market sentiment, the current suggestion would be to Buy NIO stock. The consensus among experts also tilts towards a 'Buy'. While the near-term technical indicators exhibit a bearish trend, analyst targets and DCF analysis suggest significant long-term potential. Moreover, the recent investment move by DNB Asset Management serves as a positive signal. However, given the uncertainty around earnings, investors are encouraged to maintain a balanced portfolio.
