March 5, 2010 (Chinavestor) Investors embrace the last day of the earnings heavy week for China stocks. Online gamers fell out of favor on Monday after industry leader Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME) and her parent Shanda Interactive (NASDAQ:SNDA) reported revenue growth but earnings fell. Perfect World (NASDAQ:PWRD) reported similar results on Monday. Giant Interactive (NYSE:GA) just released her numbers last night - revenue and earnings fell QoQ and YoY. You bet Giant will join the Shandas on the oversold screen soon. Spreadtrum Communications (NASDAQ:SPRD) reported 10.1% revenue growth and earnings more than tripled QoQ yet the stock fell along telecom makers - ZTE Corp. (HKG:0763) just fell -3.5% in Hong Kong.

Most overbought China stocks
VisionChcina Media (NASDAQ:VISN) lost a staggering -40% for the week as earnings rolled out. This story is a painful reminder that small cap China stocks are extremely vulnerable and are not for the faint hearted. No wonder the stock is number two on the oversold screen. Don't expect the stock to recover anytime soon.
Vimocro International (NASDAQ:VIMC) has been on a steady erosion throughout 2009. The stock price is approaching theoretical lows suggesting a reaction rally is coming. But when exactly is hard to tell.
Chinese online game stocks became oversold after online game Monday. This is when industry leader Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME) reported along with Perfect World (NASDAQ:PWRD). Despite a serious price correction we're of a view that Shanda Interactive (NASDAQ:SNDA) and Shanda Games (NASDAQ:GAME) are oversold and deserve better. Expect Giant Interactive (NYSE:GA) to join the oversold club soon - earnings look poor for this smaller online game player.
Spreadtrum Communications (NASDAQ:SPRD) fell -9.6% on Thursday following earnings announcement - another stock we think is oversold and will bounce back up. Read related story: Spreadtrum runs full cycle.

Or, a security is sometimes considered overbought when the stock is trading out of its trading envelope and is approaching the theoretical high. 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.
