Kandi Technolgies Corp. (KNDI) Tempts Investors with Electric Vehicles

Page 1 of 2

As Kandi Technolgies Corp. (NASDAQ:KNDI) announced the beginning of construction on the first pure electric vehicle charging facility and smart vertical parking center on June 17, many were wondering if this company is the real deal.

The firm has a five-year goal of setting up 100,000 rental electric vehicles throughout Hangzhou, China. That kind of confidence is hard to ignore, but do the possible gains justify buying this stock? Probably not.

But why not?

I say “probably” because if the firm does manage to gain mass appeal for the cars, then revenue would flood this Chinese company by storm. But if the business isn’t able to firm up significant revenue from the electric vehicle rentals, then its current price isn’t justified. Kandi Technolgies Corp. (NASDAQ:KNDI)’s quarterly profit fell from $26 million in last year’s final quarter to $15 million in the first quarter this year, indicating a possible downward trend in revenue. Much of the sales came from ATVs and go-carts, so banking on this company for EV prospects is a very dangerous game. Furthermore, the firm is due to pay $25 million by the end of June in payables and short-term debt. That’s a lot of money for a company with just $65 million in revenue last year, and could result in a loss by the end of this year. The firm only made $6 million in profits in 2012.

Want in on electric vehicles?

While taking a chance on Kandi Technolgies Corp. (NASDAQ:KNDI) could land you huge gains, there is too much risk with this volatile stock. Those wanting to get in on the electric vehicle grid would be better off by sticking with the big guns like Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (ADR) (OTCMKTS:NSANY) and General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) which have much more capital to pour into research and development.

General Motors Company (NYSE:GM)

While the potential upside to investing in Nissan and GM is much lower than that of Kandi Technolgies Corp. (NASDAQ:KNDI), investors are much more secure. Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (ADR) (OTCMKTS:NSANY) seems to be using its research and development money well with the unveiling of the ZEOD RC on June 21, which is the world’s speediest electric racing vehicle that can move up to 185 mph. The market is very niche, but the release shows the type of electric vehicle technology that Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (ADR) (OTCMKTS:NSANY) is capable of. Furthermore, the firm looks undervalued, with a price to book ratio at 1.1, which is below average in the sector and indicates that the price could hike on short notice.
