This month I released 4 updated reports of Joyson(600699.CH), GWM (2333.HK), BYD (1211.HK) and Caeri (601965.CH) which got success by their unique Competitive edge. Among them, we highly recommend GWM (2333.HK), BYD (1211.HK).
According to the results report, in the first half of 2021, GWM reported operating revenue of RMB62.16 billion, up by 73.0% Y-o-Y. The net profit attributable to the parent company was RMB3,498 million, up by 205.2% Y-o-Y. In H1, GWM sold 618,200 vehicles accumulatively, up by 56.47% Y-o-Y. The three major technology brands, including Lemon, Tank and Coffee Intelligence, have significantly boosted the Company's new model sales. New models such as the third-generation Haval H6, the ORA brand and the Tank 300 have received a good market response. New models such as Haval's new flagship SUV concept car HAVALXY, as well as WEY Macchiato and Latte will be launched sequentially in H2. After that, for the ORA Lightning Cat and Punk Cat, will continue to expand the matrix of new energy models. Tank 300 city version, 500, 600, 800 and 700 is expected to be included in the Tank camp successively. As the shortage of chips is alleviating, GWM's sales volume is expected to continue to rise.
On June 28, GWM announced the 2025 Strategy - "Green Smart Play": In 2025, the Company will achieve the global annual sales target of 4 million vehicles, 80% of which are new energy vehicles, with operating revenue exceeding RMB600 billion. In the future, the accumulated R&D investment will reach RMB100 billion. GWM will achieve its first zero-carbon plant by 2023, and ride into top three in global hydrogen energy market share by 2025. We believe that the Company's strategic development objectives for 2025 are clear, and the forward-looking technological innovation layout is expected to continuously strengthen the Company's strength in new energy vehicles and intellectualization in the future, and open up the future valuation space.
Recently, BYD's proposal to spin off its semiconductor business and to list it on the A-share GEM has been accepted, officially opening the way for multiple businesses to obtain value revaluation through the capital market. We believe that with the acceleration of the neutralization strategy, the spin-off listing of other sectors such as blade batteries, commercial vehicles, and photovoltaic energy storage may be successively achieved in the future. The improvement in operational efficiency and value reshaping brought about by the spin-off will push up the Company's potential value. The Company is expected to fully benefit from the dividend of the positive feedback mechanism for capital and company value.

This month I released 2 initial reports of AAC Technologies (2018.HK) and Q Technology (1478.HK). Among them, we highly recommend AAC Technologies.
The gross profit margin of the ACC Technologies's core business dynamic components has risen sharply from 28% in 2020, to 37.4% in the first quarter of 2021 (+11.4 ppts yoy, +9.4% mom). It is expected that the segment's annual gross profit margin will end the three-year continuous downward trend. The company has been deploying on Android customers in recent years, and the revenue and gross profit provided by Android customers to the company will continue to rise in 2020. In the first quarter of 2021, half of the company's segment revenue is contributed by Android customers, and gross profit is approximately 28%. In addition, the company has introduced standardized small-cavity speakers to improve the versatility to be applicable to various Android phone models. Account for about 20%-30% of total shipments in 2021, the company aims to standardize small-cavity speakers to account for about 70%-80% of total shipments in the future. It is expected that the company will still have huge room for growth in the Android market in the future, and its gross profit margin will also increase further.
Until the fourth quarter of 2020, the market share of plastic lenses has steadily increased, and the monthly output of plastic lenses has reached the level of 7kk-8kk per month in the fourth quarter. Its gross profit margin has risen sharply from -2.7% in the second quarter of 2019 to 28% in the fourth quarter of 2020, and its gross profit margin in 2021 reached 36.3%, which is close to the gross profit margin of the leading company Sunny Optical in plastic lenses, mainly due to product quality. In addition, the company's first WLG project has been successfully shipped in the first quarter of 2021, and the first mobile phone equipped with WLG glass-plastic hybrid lens has been promoted in the market. This product uses the 1G5P WLG glass hybrid lens solution. Compared with a plastic lens of the same specification (corresponding to a 6P lens), the light input is increased by 15%, the resolution is increased by 5%, and the overall lens height will be reduced by 5-10%.
From the first quarter report, the revenue is RMB 4.29 billion (+21% yoy). It is expected that the overall revenue will increase in the third and fourth quarters during the peak seasons of mobile phone and other electronic product sales and reverse the company's three consecutive years of declining revenue.
