EV Maker Fisker Sees Share Price Explode As It Partners With Foxconn

Electric-car maker Fisker entered into a memorandum of understanding with Foxconn Technology Group, the world's biggest electronics manufacturer, to build electric vehicles as soon as the fourth quarter of 2023. It seems Fisker is getting another shot at making electric vehicles after declaring bankruptcy in 2013.

Fisker's shares jumped nearly 18% in trading in the premarket, and its share price zoomed above $20 at 12:25 PM ET. 

Taiwan's Foxconn is expected to build more than 250,000 vehicles per year. The electric cars are expected to be distributed to North America, Europe, China, and India markets.

"Projected start of production is Q4 2023; this will be the second vehicle introduced by the Fisker brand, following the launch of the Ocean SUV in Q4 2022," the company press release said.  

"We created our company to disrupt every convention in the auto industry," Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker said in a statement. 

"The creation of Project PEAR with Foxconn brings together two likeminded and complementary companies, each focused on creating new value in a traditional industry. We will create a vehicle that crosses social borders, while offering a combination of advanced technology, desirable design, innovation and value for money, whilst delivering on our commitment to create the world's most sustainable vehicles," Fisker continued. 

"The Fisker and Foxconn partnership brings together two global leaders in innovation that will join forces to unlock the potential of the electric vehicle industry," said Foxconn Technology Group Chairman, Young-way Liu." 

"Not unlike when Isaac Newton realized the powers of gravity, the inspiration for this project has come from some unconventional sources," added Fisker. "The design sketch hints at the direction we are taking. However, with the level of innovation planned for this vehicle, I intend to keep the final design a surprise until the last possible moment!"

While automakers, big and small, are increasingly releasing new models - that crowding-out effect may not be a good fit for Tesla, whose equity valuations are sky-high. As of Feb. 23, Tesla's PE ratio, a simple way to assess whether a stock is over or undervalued, is at a mind-numbing 1,141. 

More or less, the flood of electric cars entering the market in the next couple of years may not be the best news for Tesla unless Elon Musk continues to buy Bitcoin.

    With its brilliant handling of the global oil market and prices, I am sure that OPEC+ will assess the market correctly in its meeting on March 4 and adjust its production cuts to ensure that a demand-supply balance exists in the market.

    If it judged the global oil demand and prices are firm and sustainable it may then decide to ease the cuts a little.

    Trends in the market suggest that global oil demand and prices have a long way to go with Brent crude price projecting to hit $70-$80 a barrel in the third quarter of 2021 if not earlier.
