Yahoo Finance anchors Julie Hyman and Brad Smith take a look at online used car retailer Carvana's stock performance after the company reported an updated profit outlook.
Shares of Carvana (NYSE: CVNA) were revving up once again this week, primarily on news that management now forecasts that the struggling online used car dealer's second-quarter adjusted earnings will come in above the analysts' consensus expectation. Ahead of an industry conference Thursday morning, Carvana updated its guidance. The used car dealer said it now expects to generate adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) of $50 million in Q2, and total gross profit per unit of $6,000, which represents a 63% improvement compared to Q2 2022.
Carvana (NYSE: CVNA) stock took off like a rocket early Thursday morning, rising 22.7% through 9:45 a.m. ET, after the company announced a revised -- and improved -- forecast for the second quarter of 2023. Specifically, Carvana said it expects to earn more than $6,000 in gross profit per used vehicle sold in Q2, and to report $50 million in adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA). Carvana noted that if it hits these numbers, this will be the best gross profit margin per car it has ever reported.
Carvana believes it can perform both feats. Carvana, once a symbol of the pandemic-era’s roaring car market, has suffered from the effect of rising interest rates. A perennial loss maker, the company once relied on healthy growth prospects to raise billions in capital.
The stock market has been relatively quiet over the past days, as market participants seem content to digest the big gains that major market benchmarks have seen in recent weeks.

Shares of Carvana soared 25% in premarket trading on Thursday morning.
