The agency pointed out that from the perspective of passenger flow and consumption during the Spring Festival in my country, the domestic economy is expected to continue to recover; the overall valuation level of the capital market and foreign capital positions continue to rise before the Spring Festival. Under the current background of frequent positives, the most important thing to grasp the investment opportunities in the home appliance industry in 2023 are the three keywords of “recovery, transformation, and cost reduction”.
1. In 22 years, under the influence of the epidemic and other factors, the stock price performance of the home appliance and light industry sectors with strong optional attributes, certain post-real estate cycle attributes, and the impact of the epidemic’s closure and inability to decorate them was weaker than that of the market, and weaker than that of the market. in most other consumer sectors. As the impact of the epidemic is gradually lifted, optional consumption is gradually restored, and the demand that was previously affected by the inability to decorate is delayed and concentrated.It is expected that in 23 years, it is expected to usher in better investment opportunities in home appliances and other sectors。
2、In 2022, the supply-side and demand-side policies of real estate will be stimulated, and the real estate market is expected to gradually recover; at the same time, the peak of the first domestic epidemic has passed, the passenger flow in offline business districts has rebounded, and the consumption in the home appliance market has gradually recovered. From the perspective of enterprises, home appliance enterprises are highly motivated to start work after the Spring Festival this year; among them, Hefei Meiling said that corporate orders are strong before and after the Spring Festival, and Haier Smart Home stores have launched spring plowing operations. In terms of the secondary market, after the return of the Spring Festival holiday, many home appliance companies such as Midea Group, Haier Smart Home, Supor, and Hisense Home Appliances have steadily carried out share repurchases, showing their strong confidence in the future recovery of the home appliance market.
3、During the Spring Festival this year, the consumer market as a whole is picking up, and “home appliance New Year’s greetings” have become a new way for some young people to pay New Year’s greetings. According to the “2023 Spring Festival Instant Consumption Data Report” released by JD.com, since the Lunar New Year, the sales of household electrical appliances have increased by 226% year-on-year, massagers, electric health pots, and air purifiers have increased by more than 2 times year-on-year. Kitchen appliances such as cooking machines and air fryers have increased by more than 8 times year-on-year. According to the data released by Suning.com, during the Spring Festival holiday, the sales of sweeping robots, washing machines and dishwashers in Suning.com stores increased by 119% year-on-year, and the sales of kitchen appliances such as air fryers and barbecue machines increased by 145% year-on-year. The number of “trade-in” orders for home appliances in stores nationwide increased by 3 times year-on-year.
4、Judging from the passenger flow and consumption during the Spring Festival in my country, the domestic economy is expected to continue to recover; the overall valuation level of the capital market and the holdings of foreign capital continue to rise before the Spring Festival. Under the current background of frequent positives, the most important thing to grasp the investment opportunities in the home appliance industry in 2023 are the three keywords of “recovery, transformation, and cost reduction”. In the context of declining external demand, the superimposed recovery of real estate and the improvement of income will further promote the recovery of consumption; in the context of the energy revolution, home appliance companies will also further accelerate their transformation; Enterprise cost pressure will be eased.
5. Since late December 2022, northbound funds have continued to flow into A-shares, driving the market up and igniting core blue-chip markets such as home appliances. In the context of the macroeconomic “rising in the east and falling in the west”, overseas funds have poured into China. Both allocation-type and transaction-type foreign capital tend to consume and blue-chip products, and there is still room for growth in foreign capital holdings. At present, the proportion of heavy positions allocated by public offering funds in the home appliance industry is only 1.4%, maintaining a low level since 2021Q3. Domestic funds represented by public offerings have sufficient room for allocation.At present, all sectors of the home appliance industry are still in the low valuation range, and the attractiveness is high. The valuation is expected to continue to recover in 2023。
Good for individual stocks
