China is the world’s No. 2 economy and home to dozens of companies that trade in the U.S. Right now, (JD), Pinduoduo (PDD), Canadian Solar (CSIQ), BYD (BYDDF) and (TCOM) are China stocks worth watching or potentially buying.


It’s been a tough couple of years for Chinese stocks. The Covid pandemic, and Beijing’s zero-Covid policy, have slammed the economy. Meanwhile, regulatory crackdowns vs. technology and data-centric firms such as Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY) and NetEase (NTES) have been a major headwind. U.S. trade tensions are a concern, with the White House barring shipments of key chip technology to China, along with tariffs and other curbs on Chinese goods.

However, the tech crackdown seems to have eased, while China is rolling back severe Covid restrictions. It’ll scrap its Covid quarantine rules for inbound travelers on Jan. 8.

With an end to lockdowns and other severe steps, a massive wave or waves of infections is underway.

But for now, Chinese stocks are rebounding. Along with price gains, volume has picked up, providing further evidence of a change of character. Along with China-specific bullishness, there’s a confirmed stock market rally that’s been ongoing for the past several weeks. However, the uptrend is under heavy pressure.

While the current top China stocks to buy or watch are dominated by e-commerce plays, don’t forget EV startups such as Nio (NIO) and Li Auto (LI). Like global giant BYD (BYDDF), all are taking on Tesla (TSLA) in the world’s largest EV market.

Tencent, NetEase and Baidu (BIDU) are other internet giants to follow.

It’s been consistently profitable for years, with annual growth since 2018. Earnings growth has accelerated for the past two quarters, soaring 80% in Q3. But revenue growth has slowed for six straight quarters, to just 1%, amid Covid shutdowns and related disruptions.

A crackdown on big internet platforms, though falling harder on Alibaba and Tencent, still weighed on stock. stock peaked at 108.29 in February 2021, tumbling to a Covid low of 33.17 on Oct. 24, 2022.

BYD Stock

BYD is easily the world’s largest EV maker, including fully electric battery electric vehicles (BEV) and high-mileage plug-in hybrids (PHEV). It still trails Tesla in global BEV sales, but is rapidly closing the gap.

BYD is China’s biggest BEV maker. As of November, it’s China’s largest automaker period.

BYD sold 230,427 vehicles in November, up 153% vs. a year earlier and 5.8% vs. October. Of the 229,942 personal vehicles, some 113,915 were BEVs up 147% vs. November 2021. PHEVs shot up 164% to 116,027.

BYD is on track to sell 1.88 new energy vehicles in 2022, the company said Dec. 22. That’s slightly less than the company had hoped just a few weeks ago, but a massive China Covid wave is taking a toll on production in late December. Even so, the revised forecasts suggest December sales will hit yet another record high.

The company is targeting four million NEV sales in 2023.

BYD earnings growth is surging, as massive, ongoing investments in EV and battery plants pays off. Q3 net income shot up 350% in local currency terms, with adjusted profit skyrocketing 923%. Revenue leapt 116%.

The EV giant is moving up the price scale from moderate priced vehicles. The BYD Seal has very similar specs to a Tesla Model 3, but starts at roughly $8,000 cheaper.

Its 90% Denza unit just launched its D9 minivan starting around $50,000. The Denza unit, 10% owned by Mercedes, will launch an SUV in early 2023.

BYD will launch a super-premium brand in early 2023, along with another, personalized brand.

BYD is in the midst of a massive global expansion, recently beginning sales in Australia, Singapore, New Zealand and several European countries. It’s about to start deliveries in Thailand, with Japan, India, Mexico and Malaysia among new markets in early 2023.

It’s building a factory in Thailand and will do so in Brazil.

BYD makes its own chips and batteries, which helped limit supply chain issues in recent years. It supplies batteries for third-party EVs, including Ford Motor (F), Toyota (TM) and Tesla.

It’s also a big player in battery storage for home or utility-scale projects. That business may ramp up further as battery production increases beyond BYD’s own EV needs.

BYD stock hit a bear-market low of 21.29 on Nov. 25, in part due to China’s lockdowns. But as curbs have eased, BYDDF rebounded, moving above its 50-day line in early December. Shares have fallen back below that key level. It has substantial distance to reach its 200-day line.

BYD is listed in Hong Kong and Shenzhen and trades over the counter in the U.S., so BYDDF can be prone to mini-gaps.

Bottom line: BYD stock is not a buy.
