Shares of Li Auto Inc. /zigman2/quotes/219811686/composite LI -1.46% shot up 7.8% toward a five-month high in premarket trading Monday, after the China-based electric vehicle maker reported third-quarter revenue that rose well above expectations as deliveries nearly tripled, as "strong order intake and users' rising acceptance of smart electric vehicles" helped offset headwinds from chip supply shortages. The net loss narrowed to RMB21.5 million ($3.3 million), or RMB0.02 per American depositary share, from a loss of RMB320.7 million, or RMB0.52 per ADS in the year-ago period. Excluding nonrecurring items, net income rose to RMB335.7 million from RMB16.0 million. Total revenue hiked up 209.7% to RMB7.78 billion ($1.21 billion), above the FactSet consensus of RMB7.26 billion, as cost of sales grew 196.1% to RMB5.96 billion. Deliveries jumped 190.0% to 25,116 vehicles, while vehicle sales increased 199.7% to RMB7.39 billion ($1.15 billion) and vehicle margin rose to 21.1% from 19.8%. For the fourth quarter, the company expects deliveries of between 30,000 and 32,000 vehicles and revenue of between RMB8.82 billion and RMB9.41 billion, compared with the FactSet consensus of RMB8.78 billion. The stock has rallied 10.4% over the past three months through Friday, while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +1.44% has gained 1.9%.
