About three months ago, edwjm brought the stock's attractive valuation (which remains relatively unchanged) to our community's attention:

Wonder Auto Technology, Inc. … engages in the design, development, manufacture, and sale of automotive electrical parts in China. It is a major producer of starters and alternators. The Chinese auto market is hot right now, and [Wonder Auto] is in the OEM business. At the current price of $10.13 as I type this, the p/e is under 15.

In a pitch from one week earlier, techfule applauded management's recent buyout of auto electronic company Jinheng Automotive:

[Wonder Auto's] latest acquisition strengthens their hand in the electronics auto parts market as we prepare to see the first all-electric Chinese cars. Rumor has it that [Buffett] is involved in bringing it to the US, with much speculation about how they can build a dealer network. ... [A]t any event, [Wonder Auto] ought to get a few pieces of that action.
