Li car stock
China’s Li Auto extended its rally to a fifth day and earnings are expected on Tuesday.
The maker of premium hybrid-electric vehicles is expected to post a strong second quarter on the back of strong electric vehicle sales, which exceeded high expectations for the period. A clear leader among Chinese startups this year, Li earns a spot on the IBD 50 list of top growth stocks.
Outlook may be more important than Q2 performance. Deutsche Bank analysts expect Li to lead to Q3 shipments of about 100,000 units due to strong demand for the L7 and L8 SUVs. That would be an increase from the 86,533 units in the second quarter. Investors will also be on the lookout this year for updates on a price war in China’s electric vehicle market.
Shares of China’s EV stocks rose 4.7% to 46.48 on Thursday. Li shares hit another 52-week intraday high after more than doubling year-to-date. Shares are up 130% since December 31.
Startups Li, Nio and XPeng all announced momentum in July EV sales on Tuesday. Li Auto’s deliveries exceeded 30,000 for the second month in a row in July.
Nio share rose 7.9% on Thursday, while XPeng share gained 4.6%.
Shares of Nio and XPeng lagged Li shares but are starting to rise. Both trailing EV stocks have more than doubled from their 52-week lows, while anticipation of a stronger second half of 2023 rises thanks to new models.
Xpeng reports August 18. Nio has not announced an earnings date.
