Ananda Baruah, an analyst at Loop Capital, said that Enovix Corp. (NASDAQ:ENVX) stock is still a “buy” with a price target of $50.

Baruah told clients that the company is probably working on technology qualifications for its batteries with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Facebook parent company Meta Platforms Inc.

Stoss said in his note to clients that Enovix Corp. (NASDAQ:ENVX) probably started sending batteries to Garmin Ltd. (NYSE:GRMN), its first smartwatch customer, in the second quarter.

“We also want to point out that the company got its first order for smartwatch engineering from one of the biggest consumer electronics companies in the world (we think it was Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)) in the last quarter,” Stoss said. “This first order should give ENVX (NASDAQ:ENVX) a chance to show how its battery technology can be used across this customer’s wide range of electronics.”

Stoss said that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)‘s strict qualification processes mean that the company won’t bring in much money until at least 2024.
