Companies are actively sharing their second-quarter performance results, and today, electric big-rig start-up Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ: NKLA) will release its Q2 report as well. Amid the Q2 report, Nikola stock is growing, and Deutsche Bank says it is an attractive buy right now. 

According to the Zacks Consensus Estimate, the consensus mark for Nikola’s second-quarter revenues is pegged at $60,000. The Most Accurate Estimate for the quarter is currently at a loss of $0.13 per share, compared to a broader Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of $0.14 per share.

Nikola CEO Trevor Milton gave another hint on the company’s second-quarter financial results. He wrote on his Twitter:

Nikola Q2 Report: What to Expect

Amid the Q2 reporting season, Nikola stock rose by as much as 21.63% to close at $36.49. After hours, Nikola stock slightly declined by 1.21%, but in the pre-market today, it is 0.49% up, $36.67 per share.

Deutsche Bank, as well as several other organizations, believes that Nikola’s upcoming business updates would drive its shares higher. According to Deutsche Bank analyst Emmanuel Rosner, there’s a 10% to 20% potential upside in Nikola’s stock in the nearest future.

Rosner has also mentioned last Friday’s 40% fall in Nikola’s stock price from July 20, when the company announced that it expects to issue 23 million new shares over the next few weeks as it redeems warrants given to its early investors. Rosner thinks this new supply of shares has largely been absorbed by the market. Late last week, the stock price appeared to have stabilized. Year-to-date, Nikola stock is 253.59% up.
