There hasn't been much change in the top of the oversold China stocks list - except for the arrival of Jinpan Int. (NASDAQ:JST). The stock lost -22.8% on Wednesday on worse-than-expected preliminary numbers. Experience suggests that JST will bounce back up in a few days time after such dramatic tumble. Chinese power generators lost momentum - suggests the technical reading of Huaneng Power (NYSE:HNP) and Harbin Electric (NASDAQ:HRBN). High coal prices squeeze out profits from power generators sending shares of HNP and HRBN lower. While power companies will bounce back up, that may have to wait until tomorrow.
