Chinese Gem in TTAI: $PDD Surges on Record-Breaking Earnings

Shares in PDD Holdings surged following stellar quarterly results, outpacing Wall Street predictions. In Q3, PDD reported earnings of 11.61 Chinese yuan ($1.64) per share on revenue totaling 68.8 billion yuan ($9.7 billion), smashing analyst estimates of 8.95 yuan a share on revenue of 55.2 billion yuan.

“We are dedicated to generating value through innovations,” says Lei Chen, Chairman, and Co-CEO, emphasizing the company’s commitment to high-quality development. PDD’s strategic investments in agritech, supply chain technology, and core R&D have propelled its rapid growth.

As the owner of Pinduoduo in China and Temu internationally, PDD competes with giants Alibaba and Amazon. With a remarkable 35% increase in earnings and a staggering 94% surge in revenue from the previous year, PDD is setting new standards in online retail.

The 14% jump in U.S.-listed shares reflects the market’s enthusiastic response to PDD’s success. Amid economic challenges in China and a softer U.S. consumer landscape, Pinduoduo and Temu’s focus on deep discounts has proven successful, possibly reflecting the “Walmart effect.”

As the largest China holding within TTAI, PDD Holdings is not only setting new benchmarks in the online retail sector but is also shaping the narrative of TTAI’s portfolio performance. The company’s outstanding third-quarter results highlight its capacity to thrive in challenging economic climates and solidify its position as a key player in the global e-commerce landscape.
