China's Auto Stock to Resurge Amid Market Turmoil: Deutsche Bank's Call

In the midst of market tumult, Deutsche Bank stands firm, signaling a silver lining for investors eyeing Li Auto (LI). 

Analyst Edison Yu's verdict echoes with optimism as he upgrades the U.S.-listed shares of the Chinese electric vehicle giant from hold to buy. Despite a slight adjustment in the price target to $41, down from $45, Yu's prognosis suggests a potential surge of 46.4% over the next year from Monday's close.

The recent sell-off has positioned Li Auto as an enticing prospect, with shares declining approximately 28% since late November, a performance notably worse than the KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF, which witnessed a 14% drop during the same period. 

Yu underscores Li's standout management team and track record of surpassing ambitious targets for volume and cost. While acknowledging a potential softness in the first quarter, Yu anticipates a rebound fueled by new models and enhancements to existing vehicles, set to bolster both volume and margins starting in the second quarter.

The company's slide mirrors broader concerns surrounding Chinese stocks, compounded by apprehensions about consumer sentiment. Against the backdrop of a more than 6% decline year-to-date in the Shanghai Composite, Li Auto's trajectory underscores the prevailing unease among investors.

Despite the downward trend, Yu remains relatively optimistic, albeit with a conservative stance compared to the consensus on the Street. While maintaining a buy rating, the average analyst's price target reflects a staggering upside of nearly 83%, according to FactSet.

Li Auto's shares saw an early surge of more than 6% in Tuesday's trading session, marking a notable rebound amidst a challenging landscape. As the market grapples with uncertainty, Yu's bullish outlook on Li Auto hints at a potential beacon of hope amid the volatility.

As investors navigate through turbulent waters, Yu's call serves as a beacon of insight, shedding light on the nuanced dynamics shaping the automotive sector's trajectory amidst broader market upheaval.
