China Anger with South Korea is Bad for Auto Stock BAIC

China’s displeasure over South Korea’s move to allow the U.S to deploy the THAAD missile system on its territory is being felt by Hyundai.  Reports of lower production in China is bad news for BAIC 1958 hk, since Hyundai represents the largest portion of its unit sales.

BAIC hasn’t yet released its March sales. But year to date February sales and annual unit sales in 2016 indicate a large negative impact of a decline in Hyundai sales.

BAIC closed down on 4/5/17 but hasn’t yet reported March sales. While it makes the biggest profit from its subsidiary, Beijing Benz, at 55% to 60% of its unit sales, a decline in Hyundai sales will hurt.
