BYD COMPANY LTD ADR (BYDDY), Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.A) (BRK.B): Buffett’s Electric-Car Maker Is Still on Sale

Management guided down for the rest of 2013, sending shares down by double digits in Monday’s trading. Third-quarter profit is expected to be less than half  a million U.S. dollars, and management believes its ongoing recovery will be delayed by the weak sales season.

Overall, though, this is a long-term buy and look away stock, for those interested. BYD COMPANY LTD ADR (OTCMKTS:BYDDY) has been and will remain exceptionally volatile. Short-term fluctuations will keep things choppy for the foreseeable future. A prospective investor should view this as a long-term hold. Wang Chuan-Fu is dedicated to creating, “a  zero-carbon and zero-emission eco-environmental system” with his automobiles, batteries, and solar panels. The company has improved substantially from its previous troubles, but it still has a long way to go.

BYD COMPANY LTD ADR (OTCMKTS:BYDDY) trades at a far more reasonable valuation when compared to the likes of Tesla, and has a more diversified line of business. While Tesla’s stock price assumes everything will go peachy-keen for Musk and Co., BYD’s valuation is more realistic, reflecting the issues still facing widespread electric vehicle adoption. For a well-priced entry into the world of zero-emission vehicles, BYD remains an appealing, Buffett-endorsed pick.
