Chinese electric vehicle (EV) stocks are climbing higher on Wednesday and they have Xpeng (NYSE:XPEV) to thank for the positive movement.

Specifically, today’s move is due to Xpeng releasing its earnings report for the third quarter of 2022. The company had a mixed report with adjusted earnings per share of -36 cents alongside revenue of $960 million.

When compared to Wall Street’s estimates, those aren’t the results traders had hoped for. EPS matched what analysts had expected, but revenue came in below the expected $1.01 billion for the quarter.

Instead, strong guidance is what’s really helping out Chinese EV stocks today. Xpeng foresees Q4 deliveries of between 20,000 and 21,000 vehicles, which is better than what investors have forecast.

That positive guidance is helping out other EV companies on Wednesday, even without direct news from them. Let’s check out how the Xpeng report is affecting shares of Chinese EV stocks across the board!
