[Updated 09/14/2021] Daimler AG’s stock rally will continue
Daimler’s stock (OTCMKTS:DDAIF) is up 20% from the end of 2020 to currently $85. The stock has been rising since the start of the year as the company continues its post-pandemic recovery. In the recently ended Q2 2021, Daimler saw revenue growth of 54%, reaching $52.4 billion, while reporting earnings of $4.05 compared to $2.11 in the same period last year. The stock price declined slightly around June as the sector is going through semiconductor chip shortages, affecting companies’ production. At the recently held Munich Motor Show, Daimler CEO, Ola Kalenius mentioned that the third quarter is expected to be most affected by the reduction in the fourth quarter before recovery. We believe this is already included in the price and the company expects to continue to grow revenue and earnings going forward.
Overall, we expect Daimler AG’s revenue to grow 4.6% to €162.3 billion ($196 billion) in 2021. Revenue is expected to grow further to €168 billion ($203 billion) in 2022 and net income is expected to be €5.6 billion. ($6.8 billion).

DDAIF stock is up 32% from the pre-Covid price of $54 seen in January 2020, after the Fed’s announcement of the multi-billion dollar stimulus package on March 23, which lifted market sentiments.
