Electric vehicle (EV) maker Lucid Group (LCID) may have the world’s longest-range production car, but its stock performance has been spiralling down.

As of 23 September, the Lucid stock price had dropped more than 62% year-to-date. In August, the company halved its production guideline. However, it still has a large number of institutional investors.

Who owns Lucid stock? We examine the biggest Lucid Group shareholders and what prompts them to hold the company’s stock.

About Lucid Group

Lucid Motors (LCID) is a California-based electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer. Lucid completed a merger with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Churchill Capital Corp. IV (CCIV) on July 23, 2021. As the merger completed, CCIV stock was delisted  from  the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), where it had traded since July 2020. The combined company operates as Lucid Group, which is also involved in energy storage and original equipment manufacturing.

On July 26, 2021, Lucid Group became a publicly listed company trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market with its Class A common stock and public warrants listed under the new ticker symbols 'LCID' and 'LCIDW', respectively.

Lucid began as Atieva in 2007. The company was founded by Sam Weng, a former co-founder and vice president (VP) of sales and marketing at Astoria Networks, former Tesla (TSLA) vice president Bernard Tse and inventor Sheaupyng Lin. 

At first, Atieva focused on developing electric batteries and powertrains for other vehicle manufacturers. The firm started to develop high performance, luxury EVs in 2016 when it was rebranded as Lucid Motors. 

The company’s main product is the Lucid Air electric luxury sedan. By August 2022, the company had 37,000 reservations for Lucid Air and had delivered 679 units to customers. 

In 2018, Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF) invested more than $1bn in Lucid Motors. The money will help fund the development, testing and production of Lucid Air, as well as the construction of a manufacturing facility in Arizona and the launch of the company's retail strategy in North America. In December 2019, the company began construction on the Arizona facility.

Lucid stock performance and price drivers

LCID Group stock debuted on the market at $25.24 a share and ended the first trading day at $26.83 a share, 10.64% higher than the opening price. 

Lucid Group hit its highest price of $57.75 on 17 November 2021 after it reported that reservations of Lucid Air had jumped 30% to 17,000 by 15 November, up from around 13,000 in September 2021. 

However, things have been on the downward trajectory since then. The company’s share price suffered from a broader market sell-off of tech stocks and challenges to ramp up production. 

Automakers, particularly EV manufacturers, have been hit by widespread semiconductor shortages since 2020, which delayed production and hurt sales. Chips are needed in car manufacturing for features such as automatic braking, power steering and airbag deployment.

Lucid Stock Price, 2020-2022
In the second quarter of 2022, Lucid halved its production guidance for 2022 to 6,000-7,000 vehicles, from the initial plan of 12,000 to 14,000 vehicles.

Year-to-date, the Lucid Group stock price has fallen more than 62%. Since its debut in 2021, the stock has declined by nearly 41%. As of 22 September, Lucid’s stock closed at $14.31.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
