Shares in the electric industrial machinery maker Greenland Technologies more than doubled in intra-day trading on Friday after it announced a new electric front loader.

The company is already leading transmission and drivetrain systems provider in China where it supplies electric forklifts for material handling in warehouses. But the company is also moving into industrial vehicles used on construction sites outside.

On Friday the company announced an electric wheeled front loader called the GEL-1800, which is the second vehicle in its industrial line of front loaders joining the GEL-5000. The company also has an electric excavator called the GEX-8000.

A front-end loader is a large engineering vehicle used to pick up and move materials. They are often used in construction sites to move materials into a dump truck, container or other large piece of construction equipment.

Stock performance

Greenland Technologies closed at $5.22 per share on Thursday and at one point on Friday was trading as high as $10.84 per share.

By the afternoon the shares settled lower at around $8.50 per share – still good for a 62% climb over the prior day’s close.

The shares hit their all-time highs of $26.42 per share in February but lost as much as 64% of its value before Friday’s surge.


While Greenland Technologies is a leader in China it does have other competitors.

The industrial manufacturing arms of carmakers Toyota and Hyundai each make or are planning to release electric excavators. Likewise mining machinery maker Famur makes its own electric excavator.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
