Aluminum Corp. of China (NYSE:ACH) is trading way above its trading range and has approached theoretical highs. The good news is that the company has advanced in both key Asian markets, suggesting there is a broad support for the stock at the moment.
Focus Media Holdings (NASDAQ:FMCN) is just as much overbought as ACH except that the company doesn't have the fundamental backing what the Chinese aluminum maker has.
Sohu.com Inc. (NASDAQ:SOHU) rose for the third day in a row after reporting sound financials. But the advance looks too much, too fast and a pullback is the most likely scenario at this point.
Jinpan International Limited (NASDAQ:JST) has yet to report earnings and thus current jump looks excessive. Downside risk now exceeds upside potential for the stock.
Baidu.com Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) has been and remains a wild horse. Despite a significant rally in February, the stock may continue to climb higher. The company has one of the best fundamentals of any Chinese companies, a factor that may be able to keep it go higher.
Spreadtrum Communications, Inc (NASDAQ:SPRD) is trading way above its trading range and looks overstretched at the moment. Investors have to be defensive here.
There hasn't been much change on the oversold end of the oversold China stock universe. China Fire & Security (NASDAQ:CFSG) remains the most oversold one but again, there isn't much to read from the oversold screen for today.
