Deer Consumer Products (Nasdaq: DEER) shares charged ahead 8.4% Wednesday to $4.37. Volume for the stock neared 600,000 shares toward the closing bell, or better than double its daily average of 233,000.

A news release that came out in early August pointed to second-quarter results that were truly impressive. The New York-based company, providing small household and kitchen appliances for global customers, revealed revenues of $45.1 million, an increase of $10.7 million or 31% from $34.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

Approximately 65% of the sales in the second quarter were generated from China’s domestic markets while approximately 35% were from export markets. The increase in revenues was a result of the company’s expansion of sales in the China domestic market. The company was also able to raise the average selling prices of our products during the quarter and maintained healthy profit margins across our product lines.

Deer’s gross profit margin was approximately 29% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, which reflects blended profit margins between its higher-margin China domestic sales and generally lower margins from export sales.

Second-quarter net income was $7.3 million, an increase of 22% from Q2/2010. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.22, an EPS increase of 22% from Q2/2010.

On that occasion, company CEO Bill He commented: “Deer is pleased to report record second quarter financial results. In 2010, Deer entered China’s domestic markets with a strong push by putting our ‘DEER’ branded products on the shelves of approximately 3,000 retail locations across China.

He continued, “’DEER’ branded products did especially well in the Guandong Province, Sichuan Province, Shaanxi Province, Zhejiang Province and Shandong Province. In 2011, Deer plans to continue to expand such store presence across China while adding in-store promotional staff to further enhance sales and sell-through. During the second quarter, we experienced strong customer product re-ordering from existing and new customers, as well as various levels of product sell-through. In certain product lines and during Chinese holidays, some of our products sold out completely. We made great efforts to replenish empty shelf space in some markets.”

Written by:

Xinde Technology Company. (OTCBB: WTFS) shares soared 16.8% to 70.1 cents Thursday, on news that the company’s products were making inroads in the Chinese market. Volume for the stock surpassed 6.7 million shares, compared to only 1,000 or so per day normally, according to data from Yahoo Finance.

On Thursday, the China-based designer and manufacturer of internal combustion engines and parts announced it is confident its products will soon end the technical monopoly current enjoyed in China by concerns outside the country in this key product category.

This, following successful tests and market studies, and the granting of technical patent certification and exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights for its breakthrough diesel engine FIRCRI common rail electrically-controlled fuel injection system.

The Company noted additionally it believes that with slight modifications, its new fuel injection system can be upgraded to meet the Euro IV/V emission standard, which is only slightly lower than the 35.5-mile-per-gallon standard to be adopted in the U.S. in 2016, and likely to become the standard in China in future years.

In a June 16 press release, Xinde CEO Dianjun Liu stated, “Our confidence in this very significant ‘home-grown’ product is supported by the supply letter of intent we have concluded with Weichai Power Co., Ltd, one of the main diesel engine manufacturers in the People’s Republic of China. They are prepared to purchase 200,000 sets of products yearly whenever our new diesel fuel injection system comes to market, which we currently estimate could be in approximately 18 to 24 months.

“At that time,” Liu said in the press release, “we expect to be the sole domestic manufacturer of an electrically-controlled diesel fuel injection system that meets and exceeds the new emission standards that will become mandatory in China in 2015.”

Based in China’s Shandong Province in the city of Weifang, Xinde Technology Company competes in three primary product segments, namely (1) fuel injection system products, (2) diesel engine products and (3) generator products.

Most penny stocks trade on the OTCBB market and the pink sheet electronic quotation service. Penny Stocks can be very volatile and can see gains as much as 500% in a day. Volatility in penny stocks is also dangerous because penny stocks can come down as quickly as they go up. If you trade penny stocks based on stock picks, make sure to always do your due diligence on the companies you're considering, use stop loss orders, and book your profits when you are in a position to do so.
