Stellantis NV (NYSE:STLA) just shared its vehicle sales for the first half of 2022, which saw a 14% drop from a year ago. Further, a recent union workers report was just released noting that the global chip shortage could bring the Italian auto concern's vehicle production down to 220,000 units this year. In response, STLA is down 7% at $11.53.

The equity is set to breach the $12 mark for the first time since November 2020. The stock's 80-day moving average has kept a lid on shares for the better part of this year, putting it at a 33.9% year-to-date deficit, and a 37.5% year-over-year loss. 

Analysts are split on STLA. Of the six in coverage, three say "strong buy" and three say "hold." Meanwhile, short interest has been on the rise, up 11.3% in the last reporting period, though it still represents just a slim 0.7% of the stock's available float. 

Short-term options traders, meanwhile, have been quite put-biased. This is per STLA's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.91, which sits higher than 89% of readings from the past year.
