William White

NIO (NYSE:NIO) earnings for the second quarter of 2019 is hitting NIO stock hard on Tuesday. That’s due to the electric car company only posting adjusted diluted losses per share of -45 cents for the quarter. This is far from the per-share loss of 18 cents that Wall Street was looking for. However, revenue for the quarter comes in at $219.70 million, which is above analysts’ estimate of $184.60 million.
