Oct. 29, 2009 (Chinavestor) As the Dow slipped another 100 points plus on Wednesday investors have started to worry if this is just a hiccup or something more serious. Today's GDP reading will give investors some clout about the health of the U.S .economy, a key measure for the rest of the week. Whatever happens, a large portion of Chinese stocks became oversold and are ready for a comeback.
The Chinese telecommunications sector has been an underdog in 2009 following uncertainty about the 3G market. China Telecom (NYSE:CHA) has a European based 3G network protocol. China Unicom (NYSE:CHU) has the American CDMA based 3G system, while China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) is stuck with a home grown TD-SCDMA network that has no viable phones yet. So when Chinese telecoms reported subscriber growth and financials earlier this week, investors were turned off due to lack of 3G subscriber growth. But here is the trick. China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) has more subscribers than the entire population of the U.S. Rest assured Nokia, Dell, and all mobile companies involved in 3G phone development are working hard to come up with a phone that is not only capable of handling current 2G network (GSM based) and new 3G network (TD-SCDMA) but is appealing to customers as well. Once that phone appears, demand for such product will be in the tens or even hundreds of millions. This is when China Mobile (CHL) is going to upgrade current 2G subscribers to 3G in the millions, blowing away previous estimates and projections and giving its stock price a 50% boost. If you think that's a viable scenario, this is the time to snap up some CHL under $47.
China Digital TV Holding (NYSE:STV) is new on the radar screen. The stock price has been steadily eroding over the last five trading days, raising questions where the bottom might be. But if you pay close attention to the oversold chart, China Digital TV Holding (NYSE:STV) is now oversold and is ready for a comeback.
Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) lost 18% in the last five trading days and became oversold as well. Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) is an industry leader, a solid company with a diversified product portfolio. While the weakness of solar companies is not limited to Suntech Power only, industry leaders are typically leading the bounce back. If you think Chinese solar stocks are way oversold and undervalued, Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) may be a good stock to invest.
