Shares of EVgo surged yesterday on increasing optimism surrounding the EV charging space. On Wednesday, President Biden announced the approval of first round of funding for the creation of a nationwide EV charging infrastructure. With this first set of approvals, $900 million will be granted to build EV chargers across 53,000 miles of highway across 35 states. This has boosted the prospects of charging stocks like EVgo.
This company is expected to post quarterly loss of $0.11 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +77.6%. Revenues are expected to be $13.66 million, up 121.1% from the year-ago quarter.
While earnings and revenue growth expectations are important in evaluating the potential strength in a stock, empirical research shows a strong correlation between trends in earnings estimate revisions and near-term stock price movements.
For EVgo Inc., the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has remained unchanged over the last 30 days. And a stock's price usually doesn't keep moving higher in the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions. So, make sure to keep an eye on EVGO going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.
