China's Automotive Market Rebound Bodes Well for Nio

: NIO | NIO Inc. ADR News, Ratings, and Charts

NIO – A short report might have scared some NIO (NIO) stockholders out of their positions, but positive delivery data means you don’t have to panic. Read on to find out why NIO’s fortunes are turning higher…

  • Nio (NIO) stands to benefit from a rebound in retail car sales in China.
  • Furthermore, Nio’s delivery data for June and for 2022’s second quarter point to excellent growth.
  • Investors shouldn’t worry too much about a recently issued short report, and should think about holding NIO stock anyway.

Just recently, Chinese electric vehicle (EV) maker Nio (NYSE:NIO) released monthly and quarterly delivery results that were outstanding. That’s bullish for NIO stock, and so is favorable data concerning retail automobile sales in China.

Nio’s comeback story has had several chapters – some exciting, others disappointing. The company rose up from the depths of despair in early 2020, rewarding shareholders with astonishing gains. The past year and a half, however, have been less than stellar for Nio’s loyal investors.

This doesn’t mean that Nio isn’t doing well as a company, though. Yes, there’s a short report that must be addressed or at least acknowledged. However, Nio’s investors don’t need to panic. As it turns out, the company’s recently issued results, along with some China-specific developments, strongly favor Nio now.

Stay Encouraged, and Stay in the Trade

In the meantime, Nio’s investors can be encouraged by positive news regarding Chinese retail car sales. In particular, data from the China Passenger Car Association indicated that retail car sales in China increased 28% from June 20 to June 26, compared to the same period in May. This is happening despite on-and-off Covid-19 lockdowns in China.

This might have been an unexpected result during these challenging times. Yet, it may have been prompted by pent-up demand as Shanghai came out of Covid-19 lockdowns. In any event, it’s great news for Nio’s stakeholders.

Even better, Nio just released some highly encouraging delivery data. In June, the automaker delivered 12,961 vehicles, up 60.3% year-over-year. Not only that, but Nio delivered 25,059 vehicles during the three months ended June 2022, representing a 14.4% year-over-year increase. In other words, the results clearly indicate that Nio is in growth mode – as they say, the numbers don’t lie.

What You Can Do Now

Grizzly Research’s short report looks scary – there’s no denying it. However, there are concrete data signaling growth for Nio in particular, and for China’s automotive market in general.

This is a lot of information for prospective investors to process. At the end of the day, though, you can choose to let the hard data guide your decisions. With that, and with some faith that China’s car market can continue to rebound, there’s a strong bullish argument in favor of NIO stock.
