One of the best stocks in the last two years has been auto retailer Carvana (CVNA), which has surged from its $15 IPO price to nearly $60 as seen in the chart below. As the company continues to expand into new markets, revenues have grown at a dramatic pace. However, the company continues to face massive losses and negative cash flow, which when added to dilution likely means this stock is due for a pullback.
(Source: Yahoo! Finance)
Let’s first review where the company has been in the past couple of years, detailed in the recent 10-K filing. Total revenues were just $365 million in 2016, but that number soared to almost $2 billion last year. Unfortunately, the net loss over that time has gone from $93 million to $255 million. Even if we subtract out non-controlling interests, the company still lost $63 million in 2018.
