Oversold stock extremes are led by Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) and is followed closely by Fushi Copperweld (NASDAQ:FSIN). Both stocks fell hard all the way to theoretical lows. This in turn suggests downside is limited from here.
China Green Agriculture (NYSE:CGA) has been resilient at $7 in the past and should market sentiment improve, CGA offers a turnaround opportunity.
Another stock offering trading opportunity is 51job Inc. (NASDAQ:JOBS). The stock was one of the best performing one in 2010 returning over 200%. Earnings came out all right but the stock fell hard lately, something that savvy investors have to consider.
This is different from China Integrated Energy (NASDAQ:CBEH), a bio-diesel producer and distributor, that fell 18% lately on disappointing earnings. When fundamentals hurt, stocks stay oversold for a longer time.
