Chinese Stocks Plummet following China’s 20th Party Congress

Investing in China has been an interesting test of temperament and fortitude for global investors.

On one hand, you have the opportunity to buy some incredible businesses at a discount, and on the other, growing uncertainty due to tensions between the world’s two global superpowers.

Here is how major Chinese stocks performed this week:

  • Alibaba ($BABA): -16.31%
  • ($JD): -17.75%
  • Nio ($NIO): -20.70%

🤝 The moves come after Chinese President Xi Jinping paved the way for an unprecedented third term as leader of the CCP

🐌 “As a result, it is unlikely for policies to be reversed or corrected, leading to an extremely gloomy economic outlook,” said Zin Sun, senior lecturer at King’s College London.

⛓ Under Xi’s leadership, China implemented raft policies that tightened regulations on the tech sector in areas from data protection to overseeing the companies’ algorithms.

🦾 “Tech stocks have never been the best friend of Xi and it’s clear that the market thinks that purge will continue,” said Justin Tang, head of Asian Research at United First Partners.

💱 CEO Tim Cook chimed in stating, that they will be slowing the pace of hiring and that the business would’ve grown “double-digits” if not for the strong dollar; “The foreign exchange headwinds were over 600 basis points for the quarter.”

📱 Apple’s CFO Luca Maestri warned that in Q4, YoY Revenue growth is expected to be less than 8.1% and that Mac aisles would actually decline on an annual basis.
