NIO Inc. shares were up 4.72% on Wednesday on nearly 30 million shares traded. The Chinese car company didn't have any particular news but it was earlier this month that it reported third quarter financial results. The company's VP of Finance, Nick Wang, said on the earnings call, "Our solid third quarter results get us off to a strong start following the first full quarter of production and deliveries." He also said, "Our total revenues in the third quarter were RMB 1.47 billion or $214 million, representing an increase of 3,095.3% from the second quarter of 2018. Our total revenues are made of two parts; vehicle sales and other sales. Vehicle sales were RMB 1.43 billion or $207.8 million, representing an increase of 3,113.8% from the second quarter of 2018. The increase over the second quarter of 2018 was attributed to an accelerated delivery of the ES8 in the third quarter. Remember that we only started making deliveries of the ES8 in the last three days of June, so our second quarter sales figures reflect the sales from June 28th through June 30th."
