Volkswagen jumps after forecasting earnings’ growth in 2022. Is $255 the next target?

0

After remaining on a free fall since mid-January 2022, Volkswagen Group stock (ETR:VOW) may have found a bottom at $186. The stock rose more than 5% on Wednesday after the automaker projected higher sales revenue, return on sales and operating profit in 2022.

The company banks on the deliveries of more electric vehicles in the second half of 2022 to grow the earnings as chip issues dissolve. The automaker confirmed a target of a 6% return on sales for 2023.

Volkswagen’s boosted outlook is signaling good fortunes for a company suffering from supply chain issues. Already, the company was facing struggles for sourcing parts due to sanctions imposed on Russia.

CEO Herbert Diess said that the automaker considered investments outside Europe to overcome the Ukrainian crisis. Following the guidance for 2022, VOW has embarked on a bullish move. But how high can it go?
