What do you need to know about Vroom’s brutal downturn today?

Well, on Monday afternoon Vroom released its quarterly earnings report for Q4 2021. VRM reported a loss of -94 cents per share, which is much lower than estimates of -77 cents. Additionally, this is more than double the -44 cent loss per share the company reported a year prior. With that said, the e-commerce platform managed to slightly beat revenue estimates, posting $934.49 million in sales compared to estimated $902 million.

So, what’s behind VRM’s big drop today?

Investors are likely spooked by Vroom’s bleaker than expected first-quarter revenue outlook. Citing lower margins due to labor shortages and reduced demand, Vroom expects Q1 revenue of roughly $875 million. This is far below Q1 estimates, which were around $1.04 billion.

With VRM posting a new low, many investors are wondering if now is the time to jump into the company. Let’s see what the experts think about VRM today.

3 Analysts Weigh In on VRM Stock

Truist Securities analyst Naved Khan was clearly disappointed by Vroom’s earnings call. Khan downgraded Vroom from “buy” to “hold” and set a price target of $11. However, all things considered, that is still quite a bit over its current $3.54 price point.

Wells Fargo analyst Zachary Fadem clearly feels similarly about Vroom’s financial results. Fadem downgraded VRM to “equal weight” from its previous “overweight” rating. Citing industry-wide growth concerns, Fadem set a price target of $6 per share.

Finally, the six-analyst panel at TipRanks set an average 12-month price target of $13.80 for VRM. With three buy ratings and three hold ratings, TipRanks views VRM as a “moderate buy.”
