April 24, 2012 (Chinavestor) Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ:MPEL) and Guangshen Railways (NYSE:GSH) pulled back on Monday, just as the overbought monitor suggested. But it wasn't just for technical indicators since most Chinese stocks fell hard along market lines.
Going forward, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to report after the close while Baidu.com Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) will revel financials before the open tomorrow. Both stocks are heavy hitters in the tech sphere and will determine the future course for the rest of the industry. NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) and Qihoo 360 Technology Co Ltd (NYSE:QIHU) are well positioned to take advantage of such presumed rally.
Changyou.com (NASDAQ:CYOU) is hurting the most on the oversold screen. Its former parent company, Sohu.com Inc. (NASDAQ:SOHU) is not oversold but is feeling the pinch ahead of earnings as well. Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA), another Chinese internet heavy weight, is on the loosing streak and may only recover should Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) earnings cheer the street.
