[Request] BYD Company Limited (BYDDY). [Marked for closure/Merge. Original is https://community.freetrade.io/t/request-byd-byddy/53856]

Hi, could you please add BYD Company Limited (BYDDY). This is a promising Chinese battery technology company invested by great investor like Warren Buffett.

Yes, please add BYD its going to be a massive stock!

Currently Produces the most EVs in China. Yes, more than Tesla. Building Electric buses in Canada. Was originally a battery manufacturer so has Gigafactories. Let’s have it.

Might be worth having a look at the L&G ETF BATG which holds a nice amount of BYD :slight_smile:

Another shout out for this please.

BYD is an Over The Counter (OTC) or ‘Off Exchange Market’ where dealings are done without the use of an exchange. (from Youtube channel, Binge Finance).

A fantastic video about BYD, their range of vehicles, in house battery tech and a tour of one of their factories.

Ignoring the over egged “self driving” technology, this video really shows just how far ahead of Tesla they are.

I found a means of buying this. It’s available from Swiss bank SAXO
You can open a trial account without committing to any deals just to let you get a feel as to how it works.
BYD is currently trading at around £36 a share

Hi @Lynnzer I can see you’re new around these parts so I’ll start with a tip of the ole hat image

Its probably best not to post links like this. This company might be fine but completely above board but it’s against rule 6 -

“Don’t promote other businesses, e.g. by posting or promising links or referrals links”

We’ve seen a lot of OTCMKTS ‘share chats’ added over the past week or so by the team which means listings are coming. Previously OTCMKTS weren’t supported by Freetrade US partner.

If you share anything interesting you find we can demonstrate a demand for Freetrade to get this on the platform with more votes. This article is a little old now but shows you can gain quite a lot of exposure to BYD by owning Berkshire Hathaway.

I found this article from Forbes but it was almost unreadable thanks to the adverts so I screen shot the reader view.

It’s going to be a real winner in my estimation and I’m sure there are other trading platforms where you can get a s;lice of them,

I had no idea they were so established in the US already either!

BYD (Build Your Dream) also provide the batteries for Alexander Dennis EV buses in the UK.

That’s great to know. I hope it can be added to FT given its global reach.

See my previous post (April). BYD is traded ‘OTC’ not on the stock markets.

Any chance of this coming sometime in the near future?


The Asian listing isn’t likely soon, no. However, there appear to be other listings. I suggest requesting them using the form. The UK listing is 0VSO, which I suspect isn’t highly traded. I’d just Google all the listings you can find and request them all via the form in the pinned thread.

Makes ev batteries evs and mobile phone batteries…on batteries highly integrated from raw materials to chemistry and manufacturing.

Hi @Af786

Don’t forget to search in the future before starting a new request.

Please add BYD, it’s an ev company with a good balance sheet
