Virgin Galactic (SPCE) Stock Forecast After Branson Goes to Space

Richard Branson took his Virgin ride into space this weekend and as a reward, shares of Virgin Galactic plunged 18% today.

That might seem perplexing, but we're going to show you why.

And for those excited by the company's prospects now that it lodged a major milestone in the commercial space race, we'll also show you our long-term SPCE stock forecast.

Before we get to that, let's take a look at why SPCE is down today.


Why the 24% Virgin Galactic Stock Jump Is Only the Beginning

Virgin Galactic (NYSE: SPCE) successfully flew to space for the first time since 2019 on May 22 (Saturday).

As a result, the stock jumped 24% the following Monday.

But Virgin Galactic stock has much higher to go in a space industry poised to reach $1 trillion by 2040, according to Morgan Stanley.

That's nearly triple its 2020 value of $350 billion.

Virgin Galactic will almost certainly share in that growth.

The successful test flight represents a giant leap forward for the company's plans to lead human spaceflight for individuals and researchers.

Here's what you should know about this space stock meanwhile.

How Virgin Galactic Could Triple Your Money by Spring

Had you bought Amazon back in December 2014, you'd be sitting on a 600% gain right now.

Boeing in January 2009 would have given you 863% by now. And purchasing shares of Apple in December 2008 would have returned 2,583% today.

These are incredible returns that could have turned as little as $500 into $3500, $4815, even $13,415…

But there's a catch. It would have taken you years to get there. In the case of Apple and Boeing, it would have taken over a decade.

Investing in the technologies of the future is lucrative, sure. But it's a long-term investment – and why wait to make that kind of cash if you don't have to?
