    BYD's profit triples as China's electric car boom continues

    Chinese electric car maker BYD Co Ltd posted a 203.6% rise in first-half profit on Wednesday, as China's new energy vehicle market continues to surge. The Shenzhen-based company, which is backed by U.S. investor Warren Buffett and whose products include battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, posted net profit of 1.45 billion yuan ($205.29 million), up from 479.10 million yuan a year earlier. BYD, whose models include the Song series and the Qin plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, aims to move to completely electric-powered vehicles.

    Don’t Bet on the Long Shot That Is Nio Stock Because It Won’t Pay Off

    Shares of Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock have been hit hard. The Chinese electric-vehicle manufacturer currently trades at $2.60/share, down from its IPO price of $6.26/share. The Nio stock price is down more than 80% from its all-time high of $13.80/share.Source: Nio With a weak local auto market, a trade war that prevents American expansion, and a slew of issues such as battery fires, is "China's Tesla" still a strong opportunity?I say "No." Despite high expectations the company will become the "Chinese Tesla," this has yet to be realized. The company continues to generate not only losses but negative gross margins. With a weak balance sheet, the company needs continued dilutive capital infusions.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe Chinese electric vehicle market is overly saturated. And with the relaxation of foreign-ownership laws, companies like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) are moving into the market as well. * 10 Stocks That Should Be Every Young Investor's First Choice Tie all of these together, and "China's Tesla" remains a long shot, with too many risks outweighing the upside. Investors have better opportunities elsewhere, and should avoid/sell their Nio shares. Nio's Local Market IssuesAccording to Reuters, Chinese car sales declined for the first time since the 1990s. April vehicle sales were down 14.6% year-over-year. Chinese electric vehicle sales have not declined, but sales growth has flattened. May 2019 EV sales were up only 1.8% YOY.To counter this slump, the Chinese government is increasing the number of car licenses. But despite this state support, the Chinese government has decided to phase out EV subsidies. The EV subsidy cut has materially impacted Nio's performance, with sales falling 50% from the previous quarter . Additional Risks Impact Nio StockThe U.S.-China trade war is another risk factor. The company expected to commence sales in America starting next year. But with all the uncertainty regarding trade, among other issues, Nio has shelved these plans.Nio continues to be reliant on third-party manufacturers. The company makes its cars at a state-owned JAC Motors facility. Nio essentially subsidizes the JAC plant's operations, with the company agreeing to compensate for losses until April 2021.Like other electric vehicle makers, battery fires have been an issue. On June 27, Quartz reported that 4,800 of Nio's flagship ES8 SUV were recalled due to battery fire issues. This was about 1/3rd of ES8s out on the road.Put all these risks together, and it is clear that the company is not ready for prime time. But despite these red flags, US investors continue to give the company an inflated valuation. Nio Stock ValuationDespite many risks, Nio stock continues to trade at a high valuation. A look at their most recent financials highlights a variety of red flags: * Vehicle sales down 54.6% YOY * Negative gross margin of 13.4% * Net loss of $395.2m ($0.38/shares) * Q2 2019 sales anticipated to decline an additional 20-30% from the first quarterTo keep the company operational, state-owned fund E-Town Capital has invested $1.45 billion into a joint venture (Nio China). This partnership will give the cash needed to operate/expand. E-Town capital will also help the company build a factory and/or find new manufacturing partners.While this arrangement keeps the company solvent, it highlights the risk of dilution. The Nio stock price could fall further if the capital infusions continue.The Nio stock price has been supported by the fact it is the only pure play Chinese EV maker trading on a major exchange. With competitors such as BYD (OTCMKTS:BYDDF) trading over-the-counter in the US, Nio is the more liquid Chinese EV play.But easy access doesn't make a good investment. The fundamentals of the company are weak. With heavy competition from more established car makers, Nio needs nothing short of a miracle to reverse their sales declines. Bottom Line on Nio Stock Of all the long-shot "story stocks" out there, Nio may be one of the least attractive opportunities. With a weak home market, wobbly balance sheet, and high expectations as "China's Tesla," the company has yet to produce results. With Tesla opening a facility in Shanghai, why invest in the "Tesla of China" when Tesla itself is in China?On the other hand, with heavy short interest, a squeeze is inevitable. But playing a short-squeeze can be like catching a falling knife. Timing the market is tough, as you can't predict the unpredictable.For the time being, NIO is a hard pass. Unless the company succeeds in gaining critical mass in its home market, I doubt it will become "China's Tesla".As of this writing, Thomas Niel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Europe Thinks Like China in Building Its Own Battery Industry

    The European Union is starting to act like China when it comes to building the batteries that will drive the next generation of cars and trucks.In the past few months, government officials led by European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic have joined with manufacturers, development banks and commercial lenders on measures that will channel more than 100 billion euros ($113 billion) into a supply chain for the lithium-ion packs that will power electric cars.Germany and France are prodding for action out of concern that China is racing ahead in new technologies sweeping the auto industry. With 13.8 million jobs representing 6.1% of employment linked to traditional auto manufacturing in the EU, authorities want to ensure that manufacturers can pivot toward supplying electric cars and batteries.“We are walking the talk,” Sefcovic said in remarks to Bloomberg. “We have overcome an initial resignation that this battle would be a lost one for Europe.”A number of trends are catalyzing the program, starting with the determination by EU nations to rein in greenhouse gases and fight climate change. They’re increasingly focused on reducing pollution from diesel engines and alarmed at the head start Chinese companies have in greener technologies. French President Emmanuel Macron in February said he “cannot be happy with a situation where 100% of the batteries of my electric vehicles are produced in Asia.”Drive Trains Go ElectricSo far, the EU’s program is starting to work and putting Europe on track to wrest market share away from China. By 2025, European companies that currently lack a single large battery maker will rival the U.S. in terms of capacity, according to forecasts from BloombergNEF. Measures that will spur investment include:France and Germany are working on measures to channel billions of euros into the battery industry. Sefcovic has said the EC may be able to embrace the state-aid proposal as a special project by the end of October. The two nations are seeking to draw in additional support from Spain, Sweden and Poland.The European Investment Bank gave preliminary approval in May to a 350 million-euro loan supporting NorthVolt AB’s bid to build a battery gigafactory in Sweden after the company completed a fund raising. The EIB along with the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development are working on a “raw materials investment facility” that will help to build a supply chain for rare Earth metals needed for batteries, according to Sefcovic who says he hopes the program will be launched by the end of the year. The EU in May started a 100 million-euro Breakthrough Energy Ventures fund with Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates and other investors to advance the energy transition, which is likely to include batteries. The EC has gathered at least 260 industrial companies including Peugeot SA, Total SA and Siemens AG in an alliance aimed at building capacity to make the energy storage devices in Europe.“A year or two ago, everyone was under the impression that it was already too late for Europe,” said James Frith, an energy storage analyst at BloombergNEF in London. “But they’ve made a commitment, and Europe is in a strong position now.”By 2025, Europe may control 11% of global battery cell manufacturing capacity, up from 4% now, according to Frith. That will pare back China’s market share and rival the U.S. command of the industry. The EC estimates the battery market may be worth 250 billion euros a year by then. It estimates at least 100 billion euros already has been committed to battery factories or their suppliers in Europe.The goal is to build enterprises in Europe that could supply the region’s automakers without requiring imports from the major battery manufacturing centers in Asia. Currently, Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., or CATL, and BYD Co. dominate production in China. Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. is also building battery gigafactories in the U.S.So far, Europe has no established battery supply chain, though it has drawn investment in local factories from Korean firms including LG Chem Ltd. and Samsung SDI Co. as well as CATL.The new ambition of the commission is to stimulate companies big enough to supply the likes of BMW AG and Volkswagen AG, which plan a massive increase in electric car production. Across the industry, the outlook is for a rising portion of cars to run on batteries in the coming years.No single company will get the lion’s share of the investment or aid. Instead, dozens will benefit in addition to Peugeot and Total, which are building a cell plant in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Funds will also trickle into suppliers of parts or raw materials including Siemens, Umicore SA, Solvay SA and Manz AG.Scarred by losing control of the solar industry in the last decade, Germany is leading the push. The nation was the biggest producer of solar cells in the early 2000s before Chinese companies backed by government loans took the lead.When it comes to batteries, Economy and Energy Minister Peter Altmaier is focused on the 800,000 jobs in Germany tied directly to car manufacturing. Batteries account for about a third of the value of an electric car, and without facilities to make those in Europe, more jobs will go to Asia, Altmaier has said.“There’s going to be huge demand in Europe for battery cells,” Altmaier said on ARD Television in June. “We must have the ambition to build the best battery cells in the world in Europe and Germany.”Sefcovic envisions 10 or 20 “gigafactories” making battery cells across Europe and with his support the European Battery Alliance is seeking to coordinate research that will be the foundation of the plan. NorthVolt intends to be one of the major battery makers, feeding BMW and other major automakers.“If we want to be one of the major manufacturers in Europe by 2030 we need to build about 150 gigawatt-hours of capacity,’’ said NorthVolt Chief Executive Officer Peter Carlsson. “The customer demand is so strong that we are accelerating our plans. We have taken a huge step on the way to create a new Swedish industry that will have a big impact in cutting our dependence of fossil fuels.’’To contact the reporters on this story: Ewa Krukowska in Brussels at ekrukowska@bloomberg.net;Jesper Starn in Stockholm at jstarn@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Reed Landberg at landberg@bloomberg.net, Brian ParkinFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    UPDATE 1-Chinese electric automaker BYD opens first plant in Canada

    Chinese electric vehicle maker BYD Co Ltd said on Tuesday it had opened its first plant in Canada, which will initially focus on assembling buses for the Toronto Transit Commission, a public transport agency. The 45,000 sq.ft. facility is based in Ontario and the transport agency will receive 10 electric buses with an option for 30 more, the Warren Buffett-backed company said. As traditional automakers withdraw from Canada, municipalities across the country are doubling their efforts to tackle climate change through zero-emissions transit, Ted Dowling, vice-president of BYD Canada, said.

    Chinese electric car maker BYD's first-quarter profit up 632 percent, sees first-half profit up

    The Shenzhen-based car and battery maker, which has a joint venture with Daimler AG in China, said last month it expected first-quarter profit to rise by up to nearly 800 percent. Profit surged to 749.73 million yuan ($111.4 million), up from just 102.4 million yuan a year ago, when its earnings fell sharply due to cuts to subsidies for electric vehicles. BYD said it expected half-year net profit to rise to 1.45 billion yuan to 1.65 billion yuan, versus 479.1 million yuan in the same period last year.

    Worried about nickel supply, China battery maker BYD welcomes JV discussions

    Securing enough nickel is a major worry for electric vehicle firms, an executive from Chinese electric car and battery maker BYD Co Ltd said on Thursday, adding that the company would welcome joint ventures that help guarantee supply. Nickel is one of several metals that are key components of electric vehicle (EV) batteries. A shift in battery chemistry toward higher nickel content, which would allow cars to go further on a single charge, is expected to boost demand further.
