NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Vipshop (VIPS) - Get Report stock increased by 5.42% to $12.83 in Friday's trading session, after China stocks rebounded today.

Vipshop operates as an online discount retailer for brands in China.

The Shanghai Composite Index advanced by 3.1% today, helped by an injection of 690 billion yuan by the People's Bank of China this week, Reuters reports.

The central bank hopes to avoid a liquidity crisis ahead of the Lunar New Year, and plans to carry out more liquidity operations than normal between January 29 and February 29, Reuters notes. 

"January's market decline exceeded our expectations," a mutual fund manager in southern China told Reuters. "However, after such a big correction, there's relatively small room for further falls, while the chance of a rebound is increasing."

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "buy" with a ratings score of B-.

TST Recommends

Vipshop's strengths such as its robust revenue growth, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels, impressive record of earnings per share growth and compelling growth in net income outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.
