April 6, 2010 (Chinavestor) With a strong rally on their back, Chinese ADRs are on the move. Energy stock led the DJIA higher for the week - and so did Chinese energy stock pulling Chinese indices higher. China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (NYSE:SNP) is the most overbought China stock this morning - expect it to take a breather on Tuesday. Shares of China Telecom (NYSE:CHA) seem to be almost as vulnerable as that of Sinopec (SNP). Yanzhou Coal (NYSE:YZC), the third largest Chinese coal company, has advanced +10.7% in the last five trading sessions but may extend the rally based on strong performance of coal companies in Shanghai earlier today. Contrary to coal companies, insurers fell the most in Shanghai today, suggesting momentum is drying up for China Life Insurance Co. Ltd. (NYSE:LFC). UTStarcom (NASDAQ:UTSI) has been leveling off in the $2.80-$2.90 range from the $2.40s and might fight for the $3.0 range. But the 20% plus jump last week is calling for a breather today. Another big mover is Petrochina (NYSE:PTR), the largest Chinese oil producer. Despite a sizable lift from last week, shares of the company are far from overbought and are expected to show resilience.
