Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi was the top intraday percentage loser in Hong Kong on Wednesday after posting a drop in quarterly profit and smartphone shipment.

Xiaomi said its smartphone shipment fell 5.8% year-on-year during the third quarter.

Quarterly profit fell 83.8% year-on-year to CNY788.6m ($123.4m) on the back of increased expenses and a drop in fair value of investments.

Xiaomi stock lowest since August 2020

Xiaomi stock fell about 7.4% to hit a near 15-month low of HKD19 on Wednesday in Hong Kong.

“Xiaomi’s third-quarter results were negatively affected by component shortages, increased logistics and transportation costs, and falling market prices for investments,” said Dan Baker, senior equity analyst at Morningstar.

“Impacted by global macroenvironment as well as market sentiment towards technology sector in China in the third quarter, our long-term investments measured at fair value through profit or loss in the current period have generated unrealized financial losses, with the listed investee companies generated total losses of RMB3.5 billion,” said Xiaomi.

Quarterly revenue misses expectations

Quarterly total revenue rose 8.2% to CNY78.1bn, but missed Refinitiv’s market expectations of CNY79.2bn.

Revenue from the company’s core smartphones segment posted weak growth of 0.5% to CNY47.6bn during the quarter.

Revenue from the internet of things and lifestyle products segment revenue rose 15.5% to CNY20.9bn, while revenue from internet services climbed 27.1% to CNY7.3bn during the quarter.

EV launch expected in 2024

Xiaomi said it expects to launch mass production of its smart electric vehicles (EVs) in the first half of 2024.

The company added that it currently has more than 10,00 retail stores in China and expects “growth in our lower-tier market penetration will allow us to serve more users in mainland China.”

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.
