Faraday Future Intelligent Electric (NASDAQ:FFIE) is gearing up to report fourth-quarter earnings on May 28, 2024. There’s no question that the electric vehicle (EV) producer has surged to impressive heights recently on the back of last week’s meme stock rally. But in one week, investors will learn what the company’s financials really look like. Before the noteworthy short squeeze that lifted FFIE stock last week, Faraday’s future looked questionable, as the struggling penny stock had spent months gradually trending downward and garnering no momentum.

Now, investors will see if the company truly has long-term growth prospects or if its current momentum will run out during the second half of the year.

FFIE Stock Post Earnings

After more than a week of high momentum, FFIE stock is slipping today. As of this writing, it is down 22% for the day amid some volatility. Even after its initial plunge on May 17, the stock is still up more than 132% for the week. Now, it appears that the momentum may be subsiding. But the company’s upcoming earnings report could be exactly what it needs to spark more momentum.

That said, one factor is still casting some dark shadows over the company. Faraday recently delayed filing its 10-Q report, revealing that it would miss the deadline. As InvestorPlace contributor Larry Ramer reports:

“Faraday disclosed that it would not be able to file its 10-Q with the SEC by the deadline. Filed quarterly, 10-Q forms include “unaudited financial statements” and are supposed to provide investors with “a continuing view of the company’s financial position during the year.” The SEC requires publicly traded companies to file these forms.

Faraday stated that it was unable to file the Form 10-Q on time because its annual report, or Form 10-K, had been delayed. However, the EV maker also indicated that it does not believe “results of operations” changed significantly in the first quarter compared to Q1 2023.”

This is typically bad news for companies.

S&P Global notes that when a firm files this form late, it often signals significant fundamental problems. While Faraday’s recent momentum is impressive, investors shouldn’t forget that the company isn’t without problems. In its Q3 letter to shareholders, the automaker disclosed that its vehicle sales weren’t good last year. Additionally, prior to the short squeeze, speculation consistently rose that the company ran the risk of being delisted from the Nasdaq.

All eyes will be on the Q4 earnings report, which will do much to determine the company’s growth prospects. The Q4 earnings and full-year 2023 results call will take place on May 28 at 5 p.m. Pacific time (8 p.m. Eastern time) after the close of markets.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
