Prescient Analysis on Carvana
On November 7, 2023, we posted to our MPTrader members about the bullish technical setup in the e-commerce used car business, CVNA (Carvana Co), writing:
"CVNA exhibits a HUGE 19-month base accumulation period and pattern that has significant upside potential if and when the stock recovers to and takes out heavy resistance lodged between 50.60 and 57.20... My pattern work in CVNA from the Dec. 2022 low at 3.35 indicates that the advance to its July 2023 high at 57.19 exhibits bullish form, and was followed by a completed major correction into last week's low at 25.09. The upmove off of the 200 DMA last week has the right look of the initiation of a new, very powerful next upleg in CVNA provided any forthcoming acute weakness is contained above the 200 DMA. For anyone who has a time horizon of 12 months, and who can risk the 200 DMA, CVNA has the potential risk reward of 9 points on the downside versus 50+ points on the upside... Last is 34.16..."
During the ensuing 6 weeks since our update, CVNA has ripped higher to last Thursday's (Sep 14) three-month price peak at 54.35 (see daily chart below). That's a whopping 59% from where CVNA was trading on November 7, which reminds us about a prescient comment we made back on September 1 during one of our frequent CVNA pattern development updates:
"If the near and intermediate-term patterns exhibited by CVNA follow the projected bullish scenario, then we will have to think that the US economy is hitting on most of its cylinders AND that car loans and the interest rates on those loans will be much more attractive than they have been during the past year..."
After last week's apparent Fed Pivot on the direction of monetary policy (a transition from very restrictive to modestly accommodative), the combination of a plunge in interest rates and the perception (if not the reality) that disinflationary pressure will continue to drive the CPI and the PCE inflation gauges closer to the Fed's 2% target considerably sooner than expected without a significant fallout in the jobs market is perhaps Nivana for the business of Carvana!
What do we see next for CVNA heading into the end of the year and thereafter, into Q1, 2024? Judging from the technical setup, CVNA's future looks extremely promising.
