Bedrock AI started predicting a crisis at Lucid Group (LCID) as early as November 2021. At that time Lucid's stock price had reached an all time high with a price per share over $50. Since then Lucid's stock price has plunged to under $9, as of December, 2022, a drop greater than 80%. In fact, Lucid Group was one of the worst performing stocks in the Russell 2000.
In addition to Lucid’s high Bedrock AI risk score (top 7%), we flagged severe red flags to our subscribers.
Red flags at Lucid Group flagged by Bedrock AI algorithms during 2021 included:
Accounting adjustments and material weaknesses in internal controls.
Related party transactions, including an agreement with a related entity (Public Investment Fund) that would involve a $1M reimbursement for a talent development program. Learn more about the risks of related party transactions in our Red Flag Guide.
A regulatory subpoena from the Securities Exchange Commission (received in December 2021).
Lucid went public via a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) merger. Quite a few of these types of companies have experienced issues later in their lives. We wrote a number of articles about issues at SPACs.
