The shares of Rivian Automotive (RIVN) lost nearly 60% of their value year-to-date in 2022 as of 9 November, amid strong cost pressures and its struggle to ramp up production of its vehicles in the current macroeconomic conditions.

Sentiment around the stock weakened as customers who had pre-ordered the company’s vehicles as far back as 2019, were waiting to receive them for longer than those who ordered vehicles later, Reuters reported earlier this year.

In addition, the company issued a recall of more than 12,000 vehicles in October amid concerns of insufficiently torqued vehicles, which could have led to wheel tilt, loose and vibrating tires, and steering control loss.

In light of these headwinds on the company’s stock, how are Rivian’s investors feeling? Let’s take a look at the biggest Rivian shareholders.

What is Rivian Automotive?

Rivian Automotive is an electric vehicle producer and automotive technology company headquartered in California. The company is known for designing and manufacturing electric vehicles as well as providing related accessories and services.

The automaker manufactures and has started the delivery of its first-generation consumer vehicle called R1T, which is a two-row, five-passenger pickup truck.

The company went public on 10 November 2021, selling 153 million shares at an initial public offering (IPO) of $78 a share. The offer raised nearly $12bn and valued Rivian at $66.5bn. The shares began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange under the ticker ‘RIVN’.

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.
