Hertz Global Holdings experienced more than 700% in its HTZ stock value in 4 days with a 24-hour rise of 112%. This growth comes days after the North American car rental service filed for bankruptcy.

A lot of dramatic comebacks are currently being seen from the Monday market trading as most companies stocks are rebounding with a trajectory that amazes analysts. Coinspeaker reported the positive growth of Michaels Companies Inc (NASDAQ: MIK) based on an upgrade from JPMorgan. The trend continues with Hertz Global Holdings Inc (NYSE: HTZ) whose shares skyrocketed by more than 700% in the past four days. Hertz stock shot up 112.69% to $5.53 on record trading volume of more than 517.5 million shares. Hertz Global Holdings Inc (NYSE: HTZ) is a car rental company whose market got disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The lockdown which temporarily halted movements as well as interstate travels plunged the company’s stock to one of its worst since inception.

Meanwhile, in the pre-market, Hertz (HTZ) stock is at $4.96 (-10.31%).

Overview of the Under-performing Hertz Company

The Hertz Corporation is a subsidiary of Hertz Global Holdings Inc with an extensive 10200 outlets and franchises across the United States of America and in over 150 countries. The company filed for bankruptcy on May 22, 2020, citing a sharp decline in revenue and future bookings caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

 “Hertz Global Holdings Inc., one of the nation’s largest car-rental companies, filed for bankruptcy protection Friday, saddled with about $19 billion in debt and nearly 700,000 vehicles that have been largely idled because of the coronavirus.”

The recorded debt profile has a loss pile up precedent including a $58 million in 2019.

With the bankruptcy filed, the company’s debt profile has a likelihood of been forgiven but as Jack Kelly noted:

“Hertz’s bankruptcy will have a big impact. It’s likely that there will be future layoffs, in addition to the 16,000 employees who have already lost their jobs or have been furloughed. It’s reasonable to believe that the hours of the remaining staff will be reduced and furloughed workers won’t be asked to return.”

In a bid to analyze holistically, we can accrue the failure of the company to years of management redundancy and not just because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Hertz Stock Shows Signs of Strong Recovery

The scary rise in Hertz (HTZ) stock has called for questioning among analysts. Could demand for cars rise monumentally with the reopening of the economy to stir the current upward trajectory of HTZ? Another notable point is to analyze the probable longevity of the new lease of life the company’s stock is experiencing. Would it be high enough to cause a significant revenue change in the company?

These questions may be too early to answer but with continuous improvement in Hertz stock, the company may be in a vantage position to return back to business.
