Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in Autohome Inc as long as the price is correct and the indicators that I describe in my book The Confident Investor are favorable. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns. Because Autohome barely made it past the threshold as being a Fair company, I am going to remove the company from my Watch List to make room for a higher-performing company.
If you would like to understand how to evaluate companies like I do on this site, please read my book, The Confident Investor. You can review the best companies that I have found (and I probably invest my own money in most of these companies) in my Watch List.
