//The three swordsmen of new energy vehicles in China//

Recently, the stock price of new automobile manufacturing forces represented by NiO has soared. The shares of xpev and Li, which are listed in the United States, are also soaring. Since November this year, the stock price of Xiaopeng automobile has risen by more than 260%, that of ideal automobile has risen by more than 110%, and that of Weilai automobile has risen by more than 70%. Although the stock price of new forces of car making has also fluctuated briefly recently, the overall trend is still good.

In the view of Cui Dongshu, Secretary General of the Hong Kong Federation of trade unions, the price of new energy vehicles is higher in the US capital market, and there is a certain bubble. Valuation is the evaluation of capital market, which has no practical significance in promoting the development of enterprises. However, the high valuation reflects the mentality and expectations of investors. The bubble in capital markets is also a reflection of the future. American investors agree with Teslas development route and the development trend of new energy vehicles in the future. Therefore, it gives a high valuation to the new Chinese automobile manufacturers listed in the United States, which is also a good thing. In addition, compared with the weak competition of new energy vehicles in Europe, China has a number of new car making forces emerging, and there is no new car making force in other countries around the world. Therefore, it is easier for Weilai automobile and others to obtain the overvalued value of American capital market, which is also the evaluation performance of high valuation of some Chinese industries in the international market.

As for whether the stock price is overvalued, Li Xiang, CEO of ideal automobile, once said in an interview: although enterprise Fundamentals (including sales, revenue and other core factors) will have a certain impact on the stock price, the fluctuation of stock price is more determined by the market.
