    Volvo Foots Bill for Battery Charges in Bid to Curb Emissions

    (Bloomberg) -- Volvo Cars isn’t just electrifying its lineup to cut carbon emissions. Now the Swedish automaker says it will pay customers to make sure they plug in.Volvo is tying the launch of its first all-electric vehicle -- the XC40 Recharge crossover -- to a broader plan for shrinking the carbon footprint of its models by 40% through 2025. And it’s backing that pledge with a promise to pay the first year’s worth of charging costs for owners of its plug-in hybrids, starting with the 2021 model year.Volvo placed itself at the forefront of electric car hype in 2017 when it vowed to rid its lineup of cars running purely on fossil fuels by 2025. To get there, it’s going to roll out a new battery-electric model every year until 2025, starting with its XC SUVs, Chief Executive Officer Hakan Samuelsson said. Those will join a growing range of hybrid models.“We believe we should treat sustainability as as much of an integrated part of our business as safety, not just something we do as an add-on,” Samuelsson said in a phone interview. “We’re making it part of our product offering.”Model 3 RivalBuyers of 2021 model year hybrids will be able to claim a refund for their electricity costs during the first year of ownership based on power consumption data extracted from Volvo’s app for Apple and Android smartphones. Volvo plug-in hybrid owners drive in electric mode only about 40% of the time, Samuelsson said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.The XC40, which Volvo unveiled earlier today in Los Angeles, will have 200 miles of range in the U.S., 402 horsepower and take 40 minutes to get to 80% battery capacity on a fast-charging system, the company said. That compares to the 240-mile range of Tesla Inc.’s Model 3 sedan.Samuelsson said Volvo will start producing its first EV late next year and price it to compete with the Model 3, which starts at about $39,000 but has been selling on average for roughly $50,000.“It’s affordable for a much broader range of people” than higher-priced luxury brand electric cars, said Volvo’s Chief Technology Officer Henrik Green. The XC40 is “more like a $50,000 car than a $100,000 car,” he said.The electric XC40 will join a wave of new EVs debuting to keep up with tightening emissions regulations in China and Europe. While uptake remains slow, carmakers including Volkswagen AG and Daimler AG have launched new models like the Audi e-tron and Mercedes EQC to chase after Tesla.Volvo is pushing ahead with its electric ambitions as others in the space struggle. NIO Inc., China’s would-be Tesla competitor, is running short of cash. Jia Yueting, founder of electric vehicle start-up Faraday & Future Inc., filed for bankruptcy. And Dyson Ltd., the famed maker of vacuum cleaners, pulled the plug on its battery-powered car project.‘Midterm’ Profitability GoalVolvo would not be making a fully electric XC40 if it wasn’t “absolutely sure” the car will be profitable, Samuelsson said.“It might be lower profit margin initially, but what counts is more midterm” profitability goals, he said.The bet on electrics comes at a time when the carmaker is coping with a global sales slowdown and tariffs that led to a 30% drop in first-half operating income. To cut costs, the company plans to merge engine operations with Chinese parent Geely.Samuelsson said Volvo wants to increase the appeal of electrified vehicles so they sell without government subsidies -- and incentives like free charging for the first year. “Long term, if this is really going to do something to the climate or the environment, the cars need to be attractive and need to be bought by customers with their own money,” he said.(Adds CTO comment in eighth paragraph.)\--With assistance from Shery Ahn and Amanda Lang.To contact the reporters on this story: Gabrielle Coppola in New York at gcoppola@bloomberg.net;Ed Ludlow in San Francisco at eludlow2@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Craig Trudell at ctrudell1@bloomberg.net, Gabrielle Coppola, Chester DawsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Nio's stock drops after report that talks of funding for a new factory were halted

    Shares of Nio Inc. dropped 5.2% in active premarket trading Wednesday, after a report that talks for a sizable investment to build a factory in China were called off. On Tuesday, the China-based electric car maker's stock rose 1.3% after the National Business Daily (NBD) reported that Nio was in talks with Wuxing District of Huzhou City on funding of over 5 billion renminbi, or about $704 million at current exchange rates, for a factory in the district with a capacity to make 200,000 vehicles a year. On Wednesday, NBD reported the talks were halted given the heavy risks, with no agreement of intent having been reached. Nio's stock has plunged 53.0% over the past three months through Tuesday, while U.S.-based rival EV maker Tesla Inc. shares have gained 2.2% and the S&P 500 has eased 0.3%.

  • Ignore the Crowd and Avoid Shopify Stock

    Ignore the Crowd and Avoid Shopify Stock

    Here's an exercise for you. How much would you pay for $100 million per year of operating cash flow and maybe $1.4 billion in sales, growing at about 20% per year? Would you pay 10 times that revenue? Maybe 20 times that revenue? Certainly, you wouldn't pay 30 times that revenue. But that's almost precisely what investors are being asked to pay today for stock in Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), the Canadian e-commerce software house.Source: BalkansCat / Shutterstock.com Shopify's market cap is $39.8 billion, about 29.5 times its estimated 2019 revenue, based on the $680 million that came in for the first two quarters. Please let's not talk about earnings. There aren't any.So without any earnings, why the insane valuation? It's because of one magic word.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The Magic Word is 'Amazon'Shopify is said to be competing directly with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN).How does a Canadian company with $380 million in sales for its most recent quarter compete with an e-commerce and cloud giant that earned $2.6 billion on revenue of $63.4 billion in its most recent quarter?Here's how The Observer put it just last month: "Shopify Overtakes eBay as Second Biggest Shopping Site After Amazon."How exactly has Shopify overtaken eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY)? The Financial Times notes that Shopify's market cap is now bigger than that of eBay. The market cap of eBay is $32.5 billion.But does this make Shopify bigger than eBay? It doesn't. Revenue for eBay in the second quarter was $2.7 billion. That's seven times more than Shopify brought in. Also, eBay had earnings of $403 million in its second quarter, or 46 cents per share. Is SHOP Stock a Bargain?What's even crazier is that we're supposed to consider Shopify a bargain now because the shares recently pulled back from their all-time high of $406, achieved in late August. This came after it priced a secondary offering of stock at $317.60 to help strengthen its balance sheet.Shopify needs to strengthen the balance sheet to pay $450 million for 6 River Systems, which makes robotic carts for warehouses. This will be added to the Shopify Fulfillment Network, announced in June, which mainly consists of a web page and a lot of promises.6 River Systems had just gone through a $25 million Series B funding round. The robots, dubbed Chuck, are the size of a big shopping cart and lead workers around the warehouse, rather than following them. You Don't Have to Believe MeI admit to being in the minority of InvestorPlace contributors in my suspicions about Shopify. Ian Cooper recently called it a "strong buy." David Moadel recently called this "the best time" to buy.What about my track record? I've been calling Shopify a bubble stock for almost two years, since it was trading in the mid-$70 range. In June I called the shares "my favorite mistake," claiming it was rising on a short squeeze. At the time, 28% of its shares were being held by shorts. The most recent percentage, according to Fintel, is 31%. By way of comparison, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has a short interest of 20%. The Bottom Line on Shopify StockThe bottom line here is that I've been consistently wrong on Shopify, and I might be wrong again.A few of InvestorPlace's writers are starting to get out their oxygen masks in the thin air and lean my way. Josh Enomoto says "don't let the red ink tempt you." Brad Moon says it's "time to be cautious."You can't make money on the stock you don't buy.
