BofA Securities analyst Ming Hsun Lee upgraded NIO (NYSE: NIO) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $26.00 (from $25.00).

The analyst comments "NIO is trading at 1.7x 1-year forward EV/sales, 1SD below its historical average. This seems attractive given the improving outlook – NIO traded at a similar valuation only during 2H19-1Q20 when it faced sales slowdown, product recalls and financing challenges, while its current fundamental is stronger in terms of brand equity, sales growth, R&D capability, and improved cash flow. Factoring in the latest model schedule and production recovery pace, we lift 2022/23E sales volume by 3%/8%. We lift our PO to USD26/HKD202, based on unchanged target EV/sales to a slightly higher 2022E sales."
