Market News Daily – Mullen Announces Big EV Updates and New $263 Million Order.

Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) has announced big EV updates and a new $263 million purchase order from Randy Marion Automotive Group.

The company has reported that as of April 30, 2023, the cash available for Company operations was $116.1 million.

The $263 million PO from RMA group is for both Mullen’s Class 1 vans and Class 3 work trucks.

Yesterday the company announced it had received a purchase order of $63 million for 1,000 class 1 EV cargo vans, which may be part of the $263 million PO.

But despite these positive developments, Mullen Automotive stock continues to crash.

On Wednesday, volume soared to more than 1 billion with price plunging more than -21%.

Investors are outraged by the performance seen in the market.

In April, Mullen Automotive announced that it would be opening an investigation into the possibility of the manipulation and illegal shorting of MULN stock.

“These steps include retaining outside counsel, which is working with Shareholder Intelligence Services LLC (β€œShareIntel”) to undertake a comprehensive analysis of data derived from broker-dealers, clearing firms and other sources to provide actionable intelligence on potential market manipulation and illegal short selling,” the company said.

Investors, Tread Cautiously

Mullen Automotive stock has been a retail favorite, but new investors should tread cautiously.

The company stock seems to have a target on its back from Wall Street investors, and as we’ve seen with many other companies in the market, institutions have the leverage to create serious damage.

While these are all positive developments indeed for Mullen Automotive, the stock market is portraying a separate story.

But I’m curious to know your thoughts on Mullen’s current share price.
