TEMPE, Ariz.: Used-car retailer Carvana’s shares rallied on bets from traders after cost-cutting efforts led the company to beat Wall Street estimates for adjusted earnings in the second quarter. It closed 46% higher last week.
Carvana is an online used car retailer based in Tempe, Arizona.
Carvana stock climbed to $26.09, or about 68%, surpassing an eight-month high. The previous trading price was $24.23.
Calvana is expected to report adjusted earnings of over $50 million in the second quarter before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
The Tempe, Arizona-based debt-laden company had expected quarterly earnings in May but didn’t release the numbers until last week.
