Shares of several Chinese electric-vehicle makers were trading higher on Monday, after a Wall Street analyst raised price targets for two of the stocks in the group and gave one an upgrade.
Here’s where things stood for these three companies as of 2 p.m. EST, relative to their closing prices on Friday.
Kandi Technologies (NASDAQ:KNDI) was up about 12.1%
Li Auto (NASDAQ:LI) was up about 15.6%.
XPeng Motors (NYSE:XPEV) was up about 6.1%
So what to do?
Citibank analyst Jeff Chung had bullish takes on both Li Auto and XPeng in a new note on Chinese electric-vehicle stocks on Monday.
Chung upgraded Li Auto to buy from neutral, and boosted his price target for the shares to $45.60 from $27.10. He maintained his previous buy rating on XPeng, but boosted that price target as

• Chung noted that sales momentum for what the Chinese government refers to as “new energy vehicles” — electrics and hybrids — has remained strong since China’s COVID-19 pandemic faded in the spring. He expects that momentum to continue into the first quarter of 2021, with the overall sector’s sales up more than 100% year over year.
