August 18, 2010 (Chinavestor) The triple digit gain in the DJIA on Tuesday had a profound impact on Chinese ADRs. The overbought end of the China stock universe is active again, investors have to pay attention to stocks such as ChinaTechfaith Wireless (NASDAQ:CNTF), Rino International (NASDAQ:RINO) and 51job Inc. (NASDAQ:JOBS) or large cap China Mobile (NYSE:CHL). Huaneng Power International (NYSE:HNP) is in talks to buy InterGem stake, feeding its rally. One of the biggest looser lately is Qiao Xing Mobile (NYSE:QXM), but despite a 4 day loosing streak more downside is possible.
Like I said, the overbought end of the China stock universe commences more attention today. China TechFaith Wireless (NASDAQ:CNTF) advanced 15 percent in the last three days - but is becoming overbought. While the stock hasn't reached theoretical highs yet, the stretch from $2.7 to $3.2 in three days looks unusual for the company.
Rino International (NASDAQ:RINO) is fueled by second quarter earnings, announced on Monday. The company guided in-line, reaffirming 2010 FY revenue guidance. The stock traded as high as $34 last November but tumbled to $11 in June this year. There has been a lot of interest for the stock but investors have to realize that this is a trading stock with sizable price swings going forward.
51job Inc. (NASDAQ:JOBS) is trading way above its normal trading range after a 40 percent surge in the last 30 days. While the stock price hasn't reached theoretical highs yet, selling pressure is building behind the scenes.
While we were bullish about China Mobile (NYSE:CHL) yesterday, current technical reading on the overbought monitor suggests CHL hit a temporary peak and is subject to take a break. Large cap stocks, such as CHL, don't get to extreme overbought position before succumbing to profit taking. Investors have to watch out for China Mobile (NYSE:CHCL) on Wednesday.
Huaneng Power International (NYSE:HNP) delivered strong fundamentals and is now in talks to buy a stake in InterGen, a Massachusetts-based electric utility. The stock is still trading within its trading range, more upside is possible, according to the overbought monitor. Additional coverage: China Huaneng Looking To Buy InterGen Stake.
