Synutra International (NASDAQ:SYUT) is steeling the story - the stock has been on fire as the overbought chart indicates. One has to wonder where the ceiling just might be - but it's hard to tell based on this indicator alone. Sometimes a security is considered overbought after a sharp jump - as is the case with SYUT. Shares of Synutra Int. (NASDAQ:SYUT) advanced +29.5% since February 5, 2010. But it is important to keep in mind that overbought is not necessarily the same as being bearish. It merely infers that the stock has risen too far too fast and might be due for a pullback.
Shares of Giant Interactive (NYSE:GA) has been on the rise and has more upside left - according to the overbought monitor. The same is true for The9 Ltd.

China Eastern Airline (NYSE:CEA) has been very strong and is captured by the overbought monitor this morning. What's very encouraging is strong money flows in its home market, Hong Kong. H-shares of China Eastern Airline (HKG:0670) advanced +2.3% on Thursday, making it the best performer among the 42 components of the Hang Seng Index. Shanghai is going to host the World Expo exhibit opening in May 2010, ready to welcome tens of millions of visitors from all over the world. Given that China Eastern Airlines (NYSE:CEA) commences over 50% of the air above Shanghai, after merging with smaller rival Shanghai Airliners at the end of 2009, expectations run high that CEA is going to immensely benefit from the expo.
Shares of Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU) ran up to $500 after strong earnings but is looking for a reason to go higher. NetEase.com (NASDAQ:NTES) reported strong revenue and earnings growth with a healthy increase in online advertisement margins. This might be a catalyst that Baidu.com was waiting for. Whatever will happen one thing is for sure: BIDU is not overbought at this point leaving room to the upside.

The increasing number of Chinese solar stocks in the oversold monitor tells investors: be careful before the big guns of the sector start reporting earnings in March. And while investors have been selling solar plays, it looks to me that here is some opportunity for the smart investor. Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ), JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) and Solarfun Holdings (NASDAQ:SOLF) are volatile Chinese stocks. If LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK), Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL) and Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) are going to be just as good as JA Solar has been, expect these small cap solar stocks to fly! This is a high risk high reward situation, something that may be worth taking. Investors have to use their own judgement - we're just highlighting an opportunity.
