Nov. 3, 2009 (Chinavestor) Most NYSE listed China stocks advanced on the first day of the month outperforming their NASDAQ counterparts. CNOOC ltd. (NYSE:CEO) and China Life Insurance (NYSE:LFC) advanced $3 or more while Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL) rose 5.3%. But LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK) fell 22.86%. Despite a relatively widespread advance of Chinese stocks, the overbought monitor is still plain. Most of the action takes place on the oversold side. Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU), China Eastern Air (NYSE:CEA), and China Southern Air (NYSE:ZNH) became oversold. The Chinese telecom sector remains under pressure, China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) being the most prominent with a loss of momentum. The Chinese solar sector has been undervalued, Suntech Power (NYSE:STP), Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) and China Sunergy (NASDAQ:CSUN) are on the radar screen. On the momentum side, NetEase.com (NASDAQ:NTES) offers some glimpse of hope.
Regarding Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU), we have argued that the current drop following Q3 results with a lowered Q4 revenue guidance is an overshot, the stock deserves better.

China Eastern Air (NYSE:CEA) and China Southern Airlines (NYSE:ZNH) are both oversold while fundamentals are changing for the better. As the price of oil retreated under $80/barrel, airliners get a breath of fresh air. Additionally, both companies reported strong passenger growth numbers indicating that air travel is back on its feet in China. At this point both China southern Airlines (NYSE:ZNH) and China Eastern Air (NYSE:CEA) offer value for the mid-term investor.
China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) is oversold yet it's the most appealing Chinese mobile carrier. As we've said in the past, China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) under $50 is a bargain. As soon as a sexy 3G phone capable of converting 2G customers to 3G appears, China Mobile can shoot up to the $80s.
A relatively high number of Chinese solar stocks still remain on the most oversold stock screen. Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) is one of the industry leaders and a technical weakness is a signal to buy. Smaller players might offer fast returns, Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) and China Sunergy (NASDAQ:CSUN) are bargains at this moment. We had JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) on the list but it moved up after a sizable rally last week.
