Best China Stocks To Own Right Now

Investors seem to have gained some confidence from an upbeat corporate earnings season but the spread of the more contagious coronavirus variant and subsequently its devastating impact on global economic growth vis-à-vis the stock market has set off alarm bells at Wall Street.

The spread of the delta variant may again lead to the government taking stringent measures, which unquestionably doesn’t bode well for the economic recovery made so far. From New Zealand to China’s ports as well as the United States have been witnessing a rise in coronavirus cases. In the United States, the highly-transmissible delta variant is spreading in places with a comparatively low vaccination rate.

In fact, the spread of the delta variant has started to show its impact on the U.S. economy. Retail sales in the United States declined 1.1% last month versus economists’ estimate of a drop of 0.3%, according to the Commerce Department, citing a Barron’s article. Americans continued to trim spending on especially big-ticket items, thanks to concerns about the spread of the delta variant and its impact on the economy.

Wall Street expected $1.52 per share on sales of $22.91 billion. The firm reported very strong online sales (up 25%) and a 5.3% jump in same-store sales. Analysts had expected a 4.5% increase in same-store sales. The report is the latest sign that Target has emerged as a formidable competitor to Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Walmart Inc.(NYSE: WMT). Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is under fire again due to security concerns around its sign-in features. The company has not allowed users to opt out of the key feature that lets users look up others by phone number and e-mail address. Many people have added their phone numbers in the past thinking it would only be used for two-factor authentication and security. Critics argue this is the latest episode of Facebook compromising user information. Shares of Salesforce.com Inc.(NYSE: CRM) are in focus as the cloud computing giant plans to report earnings after the bell Tuesday. CRM stock is already up 20% so far this year. And many analysts expect the firm to report earnings per share of $0.55 on top of $3.56 billion in revenue. Yesterday, Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff predicted that $30 billion in annual revenue for the cloud computing giant is “right around the corner.” Look for earnings reports from AeroVironment Inc.

Top 5 China Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The dominant issue in my writing this year has been that index investing, particularly in strategies that aim to track the S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average or Nasdaq 100 Indexes has developed into a mania. Furthermore, many investors do not understand the longer-term implications of this for their wealth as the bull market ages and eventually reverses.

Adobe Stock

I have received my fair share of cat-calls from readers in response to the concerns I express, but I assure you I am not a Chicken Little here. I go to great lengths to separate investing in hyped up, skewed indexes as opposed to the broader exercise of investing in stocks to pursue specific lifestyle objectives. The latter is 180 degrees from the former. And I have not and do not expect to reach the point where I will feel that all stocks are bad investments. On the contrary, there are pockets of long-term opportunity popping up all the time. They just dont take the form of buy the market which is something that is an increasingly dangerous move as I see it.

Bad news from some high-profile companies also hurt the overall market. Domino’s Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), Carbon Black (NASDAQ:CBLK), and NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) were among the worst performers.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    After spending the first half of 2018 in investors’ good graces, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) has fallen out of favor yet again. As late as May of last year, China’s internet search leader was clocking all-time highs but had lost more than 40% of its value going into its latest earnings report. What caused this perilous fall from grace? Two quarters of decelerating growth, fears regarding China’s slowing economy, and the ongoing trade conflict between Washington, D.C. and Beijing conspired to knock Baidu back down to size.

Top 5 China Stocks To Watch For 2021

Americans are notoriously bad at saving money, which explains why the majority live paycheck to paycheck, and why only 60% of U.S. adults have the funds to cover a $400 emergency. If your savings are in a sorry state, it’s crucial that you take steps to improve. Here are a few reasons you might be neglecting your savings — and how to address them.

1. You don’t have a budget

Many folks don’t save money because they assume that they can’t afford to. And the reason they think that way is because they have no idea where their money keeps disappearing to — all they know is that somehow, by the end of each month, there doesn’t seem to be anything left.

IMAGE SOURCE: GETTY IMAGES.

If that’s been happening to you, here’s an easy solution: Start following a budget. That way, you’ll see what you’re actually spending money on, and where there might be room to cut back so you can boost your savings rather than ignore them completely.

    Stocks to Watch Today: TGT, CRM, FB
    This morning, shares of Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) popped nearly 6% after a strong Q4 earnings report. The company reported earnings per share of $1.53 on total revenue of $22.98 billion. Wall Street expected $1.52 per share on sales of $22.91 billion. The firm reported very strong online sales (up 25%) and a 5.3% jump in same-store sales. Analysts had expected a 4.5% increase in same-store sales. The report is the latest sign that Target has emerged as a formidable competitor to Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT). Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is under fire again due to security concerns around its sign-in features. The company has not allowed users to opt out of the key feature that lets users look up others by phone number and e-mail address. Many people have added their phone numbers in the past thinking it would only be used for two-factor authentication and security. Critics argue this is the latest episode of Facebook compromising user information. Shares of Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) are in focus as the cloud computing giant plans to report earnings after the bell Tuesday. CRM stock is already up 20% so far this year. And many analysts expect the firm to report earnings per share of $0.55 on top of $3.56 billion in revenue. Yesterday, Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff predicted that $30 billion in annual revenue for the cloud computing giant is “right around the corner.” Look for earnings reports from AeroVironment Inc.

Wall Street expected $1.52 per share on sales of $22.91 billion. The firm reported very strong online sales (up 25%) and a 5.3% jump in same-store sales. Analysts had expected a 4.5% increase in same-store sales. The report is the latest sign that Target has emerged as a formidable competitor to Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT). Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is under fire again due to security concerns around its sign-in features. The company has not allowed users to opt out of the key feature that lets users look up others by phone number and e-mail address. Many people have added their phone numbers in the past thinking it would only be used for two-factor authentication and security. Critics argue this is the latest episode of Facebook compromising user information. Shares of Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) are in focus as the cloud computing giant plans to report earnings after the bell Tuesday. CRM stock is already up 20% so far this year. And many analysts expect the firm to report earnings per share of $0.55 on top of $3.56 billion in revenue. Yesterday, Salesforce co-CEO Marc Benioff predicted that $30 billion in annual revenue for the cloud computing giant is “right around the corner.” Look for earnings reports from AeroVironment Inc.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    After spending the first half of 2018 in investors’ good graces, Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) has fallen out of favor yet again. As late as May of last year, China’s internet search leader was clocking all-time highs but had lost more than 40% of its value going into its latest earnings report. What caused this perilous fall from grace? Two quarters of decelerating growth, fears regarding China’s slowing economy, and the ongoing trade conflict between Washington, D.C. and Beijing conspired to knock Baidu back down to size.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Noonan]

    Shares of NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) fell 11.4%% in February, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Despite positive momentum for Chinese tech stocks and the broader market, the online media company’s share price tumbled in the lead-up to its fourth-quarter earnings release.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Its live broadcasting revenue surged as it added more virtual gifts and premium content, the ad business benefited from more brand ads and the introduction of performance-based ads in the prior year quarter, and its e-commerce business — which was recently integrated into Alibaba’s Taobao marketplace — saw a spike in product sales. Bilibili’s recent acquisition of NetEase’s (NASDAQ:NTES) online comics business should further bolster its “other” revenue.

  • [By Leo Sun]

    NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) reported its fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 20. Its revenue rose 36% annually to RMB 19.84 billion ($2.89 billion), which missed the USD guidance by $20 million but marked its third straight quarter of accelerating sales growth.

    The stock market gave up ground on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling triple digits and other major market benchmarks following suit with declines of close to 0.5%. Investors seemed inclined to take their foot off the gas after the strong start to the year, as fears about possible deterioration in economic strength and the geopolitical climate weighed on sentiment. Bad news from some high-profile companies also hurt the overall market. Domino’s Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), Carbon Black (NASDAQ:CBLK), and NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.
