(Oct. 15, 2009 - Chinavestor) With the DJIA over 10,000 and index futures pointing to a lower open, investors better pay attention to overbought Chinese stocks this morning.
Chinese oil majors had a strong day on Wednesday on top of the gains they recorded earlier this week. This in turn drove CNOOC ltd. (NYSE:CEO) and Petrochina (PTR) into the danger zone. As the following chart testifies, Petrochina (NYSE:PTR) is now in the danger zone along with CEO and thus is ready for a correction. But with crude price still at near 2009 record, don't expect much of a dramatic fall for PTR. Rather, some weakness is more likely to come for Petrochina (PTR) and and longer term price momentum is contingent upon crude price.
AsiaInfo Holdings (NASDAQ:ASIA) jumped 15% yesterday making it to a combined gain of 25% for the last five trading sessions. AsiaInfo (ASIA) will report 2009 Q3 numbers on October 28 and thus a 15% jump a day is just no fundamentally underpinned. Considering that index futures point to a lower open, expect AsiaInfo Holdings (NASDAQ:ASIA) to retreat fast today.
For the rest of the China ADR list with the most momentum, see chart just below.
Most overbought china stock list
Looking at the most oversold China stock list, there is not much of a change from yesterday. American Oriental (NYSE:AOB) continues to top the list and with not much market momentum around, don't expect it to pop up just now. Shares of NetEase.com Inc (NASDAQ:NTES) dropped on Wednesday, signalling a longer term weakness for this online game developer and operator. With the WoW deal falling apart, profit growth outlook for NTES is significantly lower. Regardless, NTES is a good company, the most profitable Chinese online gamer. At this point a $35 looks like the absolute bottom for this company, and a value buy under $37.
Last week overbought E-House Holdings (NYSE:EJ) has been showing weakness this week, just about to give up gains from the previous week.
