New call-to-action


The electric-powered delivery and utility vehicles manufacturer released its second-quarter earnings in August with little to no fanfare. Revenue missed expectations by $0.19 million, but Workhorse still managed to grow revenue $800% year-over-year.

These numbers can be expected from a small-cap stock which is still growing and evolving in a very competitive market. And are they growing, “Workhorse noted that it is now the only medium duty BEV OEM permitted and able to sell and deliver its vehicles in all 50 states, which it says should allow it to further distance itself as the first movers in the last-mile EV space.” – Clark Schultz (News Editor)

Outlook – Workhorse Group Inc (WKHS) has been one of the fastest-growing electric vehicle stocks over the last year. If the company can return to profitability, the sky is the limit.

The electric truck company was looking to obtain a $6 billion contract with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), but reports surfaced that the deal is on hold until after the elections. This could impact the stock over the short term as this contract with USPS could secure future growth for the company.

Informed decisions

When investing in this small electric vehicle manufacturing company and like any small-cap, the investor should expect elevated levels of volatility. If the much-anticipated USPS contract is awarded after the presidential election, then Workhorse could get very, very attractive over the long term.
