(Sept. 23, 2009 - Chinavestor) China TechFaith Wireless (NASDAQ:CNTF) advanced another 10.2% on Tuesday on top of strong gains in the last four trading sessions and became overbought. The stock is up over 50% in September, raising serious questions how much upside potential CNTF has left, if any. KongZhong Corp. (KONG) is another small cap China ADR that has been on fire on no particular news. both China plays are overbought and thus are ready for a correction.
ChinaCast Education (NASDAQ:CAST), Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL) and New Oriental Education (NYSE:EDU) have strong momentum but all of them are now out of their respective trading ranges. This in turn raises a flag of caution, though correction is not necessarily imminent. Stocks like these three are dependent on market sentiment to keep creeping higher. With index futures pointing slightly higher before the Bell, momentum stock may extend their rally.

There is not a single China stock offering turnaround opportunity by looking at the most oversold China ADR universe. The screen clearly picks up the weakness of the Chinese telecom sector. China Telecom (NYSE:CHA) is now below its trading range but is not oversold yet. China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) fell in tandem with CHA following weak 3G growth numbers. But China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) advanced on Tuesday and Wednesday in Hong Kong defying negative market sentiment on Wednesday following allegations that China's telecom giant will reclaim its fame as soon as it comes out with a viable 3G phone.
Stocks with notable loss include larger cap players such as Aluminum corp. of China (NYSE:ACH), huaneng Power (NYSE:HNP), Sinopec (ANP) and Changyou.com (NASDAQ:CYOU). The weakness of Changyou.com (CYOU) comes at a time when online game industry leaders NetEase.com (NASDAQ:NTES) and Shanda Interactive (NASDAQ:SNDA) registered strong gains. Shanda Interactive (NASDAQ:SNDA) will IPO its gaming unit this week on the NASDAQ in a similar fashion then Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU) did with Changyou.com. With strong market sentiment returning in September, the U.S. will see resumption of five IPOs this week, something that is very unusual to see in a typically slow month like September.
