    Workhorse Is Still a Buy Despite USPS Contract Delay, Says Analyst

    Investors have shown a lot of love for all manner of electric vehicle manufacturers in 2020. Workhorse (WKHS) has been a prime beneficiary, with shares up by a massive 645% since the turn of the year. Part of investors’ interest in the WKHS story has rested on the company’s potential to land a lucrative U.S. Postal Service contract.The USPS is in the process of replacing its iconic yet aging white right-hand-drive delivery trucks and Workhorse is the only contract bidder left offering an all-electric option. Overall, three companies are still in contention for the $6.3 billion 165,000 vehicle award. The decision on who the contract will go to had already been delayed to 4Q20, but now it appears the postal service has delayed the contract’s award further back - to 1Q21.While investors were obviously left disappointed by the delay, Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch says it does not alter his Workhorse thesis.“We don't believe a delay in this announcement changes the dynamics for WKHS in potentially winning a portion of the business,” the 5-star analyst commented. “As the only US-based full EV supplier remaining in the bid, we believe the company remains well positioned to win a sizable portion of the contract. At the same time, we believe activity among buyers of last-mile delivery vehicles is accelerating and that WKHS could see additional customer wins before year-end.”Workhorse has had supply chain issues to contend with recently, mostly related to shortages at its battery suppliers. As these issues subside, Rusch sees a “solid backdrop for WKHS to ramp non-USPS sales.”Therefore, with a WKHS model that “does not assume any impact from USPS award until 2Q22,” Rusch reiterates an Outperform (i.e. Buy) on the shares. However, the analyst expects shares to remain range bound for the foreseeable future as indicated by his $23 price target. (To watch Rusch’s track record, click here)Overall, Wall Street is torn when it comes to whether to sing this vehicle firm's praises or assess with an apprehensive gaze, as according to TipRanks, out of 4 analysts, half are bullish on WKHS stock while half remain sidelined.

    Why Workhorse Group Stock Is Bouncing Back Today

    Shares of electric-truck maker Workhorse Group (NASDAQ: WKHS), long considered a leader in the race to win a $6 billion-plus government contract to begin building up to 180,000 new USPS mail delivery trucks later this year, got pummeled yesterday. In a surprise announcement, USPS said that for the second time in as many months, it will delay awarding its long-awaited contract, and now probably won't announce a winner before Q1 2021.
