Comps: China Automotive Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CAAS), Stoneridge, Inc. (NYSE:SRI)
If we compare Kandi Technologies group to these two companies, we see a lower price-to-earnings ratio and a significantly larger quarterly revenue growth year over year. In fact, Kandi Technologies increased its revenues in Q3 of ‘21 by over 100% compared to the same quarter a year prior. Moreover, they had better earnings per share, debt in relation to equity, and return on equity than Stoneridge. However, while they did show substantial revenue growth and competitive earnings-based metrics, they did not have the profitability of these other two firms.
