Best China Stocks To Watch Right Now

China Labor Watch (CLW), a watchdog organization based in New York and China, issued a report Sunday morning on worker treatment at a Chinese factory that assembles consumer electronics products for Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN). CLW claims that a year-long investigation revealed a number of workers’ rights violations at the Foxconn factory in Hengyang.

Foxconn is China’s largest contract electronics manufacturing firm with more than 1.3 million workers. Most famously the company builds iPhones for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and it also manufactures Xbox One for Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) as well as Amazon’s Echo, Echo Dot, Kindle, and Fire tablet products.

CLW has enumerated a number of violations of Chinese labor law including excessive employment of dispatch workers who made up 40% of the Hengyang factory’s workforce, far above the legal limit of 10%. Workers may be required to work more than 100 hours a month of overtime during peak season with no overtime premium. Chinese law limits overtime hours to 36 a month.

Article thesis

In about two weeks Gilead (GILD) will report its fourth-quarter results, and I believe that the company has a good chance of beating estimates once again. With tailwinds such as the Yescarta roll-out and the approval of Sovaldi in China Gilead does not have a bad outlook at all, and due to a big cash pile and a low valuation Gilead has merit as a long-term investment.

Reality versus analysts

Analysts are not perfect and when it comes to assessing Gilead’s profitability they seem to have a clear bearish bias:

    Chris Hill: Now that iQiyi is public — you’ve talked about this before, is this of interest to you? Is this a stock you’ve already bought, or it’s on the watch list? And for those who don’t know, iQiyi was essentially spun out of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU). So, the Google of China spins out the Netflix of China. And as you said before, it seems like, if nothing else, it’s a win for Baidu shareholders, because Baidu still has the ownership stake.

The Chinese search leader has a massive presence in the world’s most populous market, and with revenue up 31%, it’s apparent that it is putting its troubles with the government in Beijing in the rearview mirror.

Credit Suisse analyst Dan Galves and team contend that “expectation for 100k reservations over first few weeks now seems low” for Tesla Motors’ (TSLA) Model 3:

The Tesla Motors logo Denis Balibouse/Reuters

Based on reports we’ve seen from consumers at the bulk of Tesla’s ~95 North America locations, we estimate that 12k+ people had shown up to reserve Model 3 as of 11:30AM EDT / 8:30AM PDT today. There were also reports of substantial lines in Northern Europe and China / Hong Kong overnight. Given that many stores were not even open yet, we think that 20k in-person reservations is a very reasonable estimate by the time the Model 3 unveiling event starts (and online reservations open up) tonight at 11:30PM EDT / 8:30PM EDT. It’s impossible to accurately extrapolate, but we think this implies that initial Model 3 reservations over the first few weeks could be well-above the 100k that seems to be the most common expectation…

Top 10 China Stocks To Buy Right Now

When the broader market recently plummeted on fears of a trade war with China, even highflier Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) wasn’t spared. The streaming giant, which has been one of the hottest stocks around over the last several years, dropped more than 6% on June 25, marking its worst one-day performance since July 2016.

Yet the stock rebounded nearly 4% the following day, closing just under $400, as analysts continue to raise their price targets in anticipation of increased adoption in the U.S. and strong international growth. Analysts have been sharpening their pencils to justify — or increase — their price targets, as we get closer to Netflix’s next quarterly earnings report, scheduled for July 16.

Let’s take a look at their logic.

Best Insurance Stocks To Buy Right Now: Baidu Inc.(BIDU)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Noonan]

    iQiyi stock continued its rapid post-IPO climb at the start of June thanks to the announcement of new content deals. The company, which was spun off from Chinese search-engine giant Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), has since retreated from the highs reached last month but is still up roughly 60% from its market debut.

  • [By Ethan Ryder]

    Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) was downgraded by research analysts at Credit Suisse Group from an “outperform” rating to a “neutral” rating in a research note issued on Friday.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Vena: Right. iQiyi, when they started developing this original content, keep in mind that they were still owned by Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU), which spun them off earlier this year. Now, Baidu has a lot of similarities to Google. They are the major search engine in China. They have a lot of data. They’ve been at the forefront of artificial intelligence. So, one of the things that iQiyi said in their IPO filing with the SEC is that they view that data and their ability to analyze that data using artificial intelligence as one of their competitive advantages. So, they have used that to generate shows that Chinese consumers just really love.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Danny Vena: Absolutely. iQiyi, which was a spin-off from the Chinese Google, Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU), they started off strictly following the Hulu model. They began as a company that used strictly advertising to generate their revenue, get as many subscribers in the door as they could, but these people were not paying anything. And it was fairly successful. But about 2015 or so, Baidu recognized just how successful Netflix was becoming, and as it has been the case with so many Chinese companies, they saw a model that they liked, and they copied it. So, they generated some new exclusive content, they stuck it behind a paywall, they encouraged users to sign up and pay, in their case, about $3 a month, and they’ve gone from there.

    Chinese streaming giant iQiyi Inc. (NASDAQ:IQ)was recently spun off from China’s search leader Baidu Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU), raising an estimated $2.25 billion in the process.
