What’s up with Novonix shares?
Shares in the company have collapsed from their former glory after shifting downwards at pace over the last six months.
In that time, shares have crumbled from a high of $12.15 to their current levels – a collapse of 69%.
This year to date, shares have faltered 59.4%, meaning Novonix needs to rally ~150% to return to these former highs.
Brokers aren’t constructive on the stock either – it has extremely narrow coverage, and just one analyst, Morgans, advocates its clients to hold Novinix shares at present, according to Bloomberg data.
However, tech shares are showing signs of life once more on Monday. The index tracking the sector has levelled off in today’s session and is running in the green, resulting in a sector-wide rally across many beaten-down names.
As such, companies like Novonix are benefitting from the resurged confidence, as hungry investors look for a cheap meal during market hours on Monday.
Trading volume is also at 60% of its four-week average as investors continue bidding up Novonix shares on Monday.
