In the said letter, Tao Value highlighted a few stocks and Pinduoduo Inc. (NASDAQ:PDD) is one of them. Pinduoduo Inc. (NASDAQ:PDD) engages in the development and management of an e-commerce platform. Year-to-date, Pinduoduo Inc. (NASDAQ:PDD) stock gained 134.8% and on October 27th it had a closing price of $90.31. Here is what Tao Value said:
“Pinduoduo (ticker: PDD) dragged 93 bps this quarter. Investors had high expectation on Pinduoduo coming into this quarter, yet the reported Q2 GMV & revenue fell short of such hype. The stock dropped 14% on the earnings day alone. On business side, management indicated its strategic shift to develop technology solutions for the vast, yet under-digitalized agriculture value chain in China. I think it is a difficult but meaningful problem to tackle.”
