JinkoSolar (NYSE:JKS) enjoyed surprisingly good third quarter results. The company again increased shipment guidance for the full year considerably (from 6.0-6.5GW to 6.6-6.7GW). This is pretty surprising considering the fact that they are the market leader in China.
Before we get to the market conditions, first, some highlights from the third quarter:

Shares of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) recently rallied after the Chinese tech giant posted an impressive first quarter. Its revenue rose 31% annually to 20.9 billion RMB ($3.33 billion), topping estimates by $140 million and marking the company’s strongest growth since the fourth quarter of 2015.

One of last week’s big winners was iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ). Shares of China’s leading streaming video provider moved 13.47% higher for the week, fueled largely by a general bounce in Chinese growth stocks. iQiyi also benefited from being tapped for a pair of prolific company lists, but it was essentially a big week for China’s dot-com darlings to recover after tariffs-related weakness in recent weeks. Even a slight diss within a bullish analyst note on Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) couldn’t hold the stock back.
