Deutsche Bank $NIO is Top China Pick
On September 12, 2022, Deutsche Bank analyst Edison Yu said the ET5 mid-size sedan could become a top-selling premium model soon with initial customer reception being positive and production leveraging Nio’s new plant. While Nio’s existing products are older and more expensive than competing products, they continue to deliver relatively stable volumes, which represents thoughtful pricing and emphasis on branding and service. Yu reiterates Nio as his top China electric vehicle pick with a Buy rating and $39 price target.
