September 28, 2010 (Chinavestor) Strong money flows send highly liquid, quality China stocks over the edge on Monday. Ctrip.com International (NASDAQ:CTRP), a leading Chinese online travel site, approached theoretical highs and is susceptible for a correction. Search engine giant, Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU) broke thought the $100 barrier and is trading at all time high. Unusual surge of Yanzhou Coal Mining (NYSE:YZC) is another reason for concern but it is Tongxin International (NASDAQ:TXIC), a small cap commercial vehicle body maker, that is considered the highest risk at this point. AirMedia Group (NASDAQ:AMCN) surged 18.7 percent and is stretching too thin, according to the overbought monitor below.
Education stocks suffered; New Oriental Education & Technology Group (NYSE:EDU) continued to slide but outlook is not too promising for ChinaEdu Corp. (NASDAQ:CEDU) either.
Ctrip.com International (NASDAQ:CTRP) rose 3.5 percent on Monday and is up 10 percent just in three days. Part of the surge is explained by investors hedging risk by rotating into highly liquid, quality, larger Chinese stocks. Ctrip.com Int. (NASDAQ:CTRP) is one of them.
Another highly visible NASDAQ play is Baidu.com (NASDAQ:BIDU). This stock benetiffted from risk reshuffling as well.
