Hong Kong-listed Xpeng stock hit an all-time high on Wednesday after the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer reported strong quarterly revenue growth and announced plans to sell cars in more European markets.

Xpeng said its third quarter vehicle deliveries increased nearly threefold from a year ago to 25,666 units, while its quarterly total revenues surged 187% year-on-year to CNY5.72bn ($895.2m).

Hong Kong-listed Xpeng stock jumped over 10% on Wednesday to hit an all-time high of HKD209.2. Xpeng’s American depositary shares closed 8.3% higher at $51.30 overnight.

European expansion plans

Xpeng vice chairman Brian Gu in an interview with CNBC said that the Chinese EV firm expects to sell its cars in Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands next year.

The company entered the Norwegian market in December 2020.

Gu added that Xpeng, in the long run, wants to focus on “global opportunities” and aims to balance its vehicle deliveries between China and the rest of the world.

“3Q21 [third quarter of 2021] vehicle gross margins increased from 11% to 13.6% q-q [quarter-on-quarter] (versus our estimate of 12.9%), mainly due to favorable product mix from the increased contribution of the higher margin P7 (Xpeng’s EV sedan),” said Martin Heung and Benjamin Lo of Nomura.

“Based on consistent monthly deliveries for the past nine months, we expect XPeng to further capture EV market share from weaker EV players in coming quarters,” Heung and Lo added.

“Robotaxi technologies”

Xpeng said its expects vehicles deliveries to rise between about 166% to 181.5% year-on-year on the fourth quarter of 2021. Total revenues are expected to increase about 149% to 163% year-on-year next quarter.

The research and development-focused EV start-up said its urban air mobility affiliate, HT Aero, raised over $500m for its Series A funding in October.

“Our leading technology is further showcased in the upcoming Navigation Guided Pilot (NGP) that expands usage to complex city driving scenarios. The solid progress we’ve made in the NGP fuels greater confidence in our ability to explore autonomous driving enabled mobility solutions in the future, such as robotaxi technologies,” said He Xiaopeng, chairman and chief executive of XPeng.

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.
