BYD shares jumped as much as 4.7% in Hong Kong on Monday, after chairman Wang Chuanfu proposed doubling a buyback of its China-traded shares to 400 million yuan. The company said the move could boost investor confidence, and stabilize and enhance the company’s value.
The automaker’s Hong Kong-listed shares have fallen 12.0% this year as investors punish EV stocks over concerns sagging demand is forcing companies to cut prices, and impact margins.

Other pricey EVs under the Yangwang brand are due to launch later this year in China, including a luxury sedan that will cost around one million yuan.
Yangwang started delivering cars in late November. It has one production model so far, a luxury sports utility vehicle known as the U8 which costs 1.1 million yuan. The company has delivered 3,653 units as of the end of January.

BYD became the world’s biggest EV seller — overtaking Tesla — in the last quarter of 2023. While it is better known for making affordable EVs, the company markets its luxury models under the Yangwang and Fang Cheng Bao brands.

With a post-Lunar New Year price war looming in China, the Shenzhen-based giant is betting there remains a market for high-end products which deliver better margins.

(Feb 26): BYD Co debuted its most expensive car on Sunday, a 1.68 million yuan (RM1.1 million) high-performance fully-electric supercar pitted against luxury gas-guzzling options offered by rivals such as Ferrari NV and Lamborghini.
The Yangwang U9 will initially be exclusively for the China market, the company said at a live-streamed event in Shanghai. The car can hit 100km/h (62mph) in 2.36 seconds and reach a top speed of 309.19km/h, it said.

Financial news broadcaster Bloomberg reported that this was due to Malaysia’s sluggish economic growth moving slower than expected.

On the same day, the ringgit hit an all-time low of 3.56 to the Singapore dollar.

At noon today, the ringgit traded at 4.775 against the United States dollar.

“External factors (United States, China) clearly important but affect different countries differently. Why? Because of differences in domestic conditions & response,” he said.

As an example, he said the Vietnamese dong performed better than the ringgit despite Vietnam’s heavy reliance on China’s exports.

The ringgit has been on a slide in recent days and hit its lowest this year on February 20, when it traded briefly at 4.7965 against the United States dollar.

The ringgit was at its lowest value during the Asian financial crisis in 1998 when it traded at 4.7965 to the greenback.

The economist also said that China’s economic deceleration and the recent hike in the United States’ interest rates have only impact the value of the ringgit slightly.

“1MDB shock also severely dented ringgit,” he said.

He noted that a country’s currency reflects its societal, economic, and political vibrancy.

According to Apurva, Malaysia opted for a short-term solution that boosted the ringgit in the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis but consequently hurt the currency’s in the long run.

He said the government’s measures resulted in its GDP and exports to fall.

In comparison, he said the Thai baht and South Korea’s won outperformed the ringgit because those countries arguably reformed the most after the financial crisis.

“Weak ringgit is ultimately a symptom of long-term decline in Malaysia’s competitiveness,” Apurva said in a series of postings on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

He said that while many Asian countries also slid after the 1998 financial crisis, Malaysia’s lack of reform affected its economy in the long run.

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 — The World Bank’s lead economist for Malaysia Apurva Sanghi today said the ringgit’s poor performance can be attributed to the lack of competitiveness in the country the past 28 years after the 1998 Asian financial crisis.

He also said that the decline was partly a consequence of the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) financial scandal.
