Top 5 China Stocks For 2019

Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) saw its shares dip on Wednesday after the company announced that it would be undertaking new initiatives to help grow the company in the United States and China. Part of these initiatives would be accelerating its store closures as a result of sluggish sales.

According to the coffee chain, it is optimizing its U.S. store portfolio, including shifting new company-operated store growth to underpenetrated markets, slowing licensed store growth and closing stores. On the store closure front, Starbucks said that it is increasing the closure of underperforming company-operated stores in its most densely penetrated markets to roughly 150 in fiscal 2019 from a historical average of up to 50 annually. The firm believes this will result in a slightly lower growth rate in net new company-operated stores.

In the coming fiscal year, the company also expects newer digital initiatives to contribute one to two points of comparable growth in the United States, supported by a redesigned Starbucks Rewards program that provides customers more choice around redemptions and payment, as well as expanded personalization capabilities for customers that have a digital relationship with the company.

    NetEase Inc (NYSE: NTES) is the largest online services provider in China with revenue from its e-commerce platform and online gaming. Sales on its e-commerce platform surged 157% last year to support slower growth in gaming which accounts for about 75% of total revenue.

    Investors in NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) have generally seen their company benefit from a strong environment in the Chinese video game industry. Impressive growth in revenue and profits in past years helped fuel impressive gains for NetEase shares, and the appetite for more from consumers in China and elsewhere has seemed insatiable. Yet in every growth stock’s experience, a company eventually starts to face challenges in sustaining growth, and the key question becomes what that company does to restart its growth engines.

Best China Stocks To Buy For 2019

 The incredible year for Steve Sjuggerud's True Wealth China Opportunities subscribers continues…   Regular DailyWealth readers know Steve made a bold call last summer. In short, despite years of dismal performance – and widespread fear of economic collapse – Steve said Chinese stocks were a "buy" again.   At the time, Steve noted that Chinese stocks met his three favorite investment criteria: They were cheap, hated, and just starting an uptrend.   Better yet, he had identified four major catalysts – including the recent groundbreaking decision by index provider MSCI – that could drive Chinese stocks higher for years to come.   It wasn't a popular call… Most of our readers have no interest in buying foreign stocks, let alone shares in "communist" China. But for those bold enough to take Steve's advice, the results have been nothing less than incredible.

Hot China Stocks To Invest In 2019

Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE:TMO) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a report issued on Wednesday.

According to Zacks, “Thermo Fisher ended the first quarter on a promising note with adjusted earnings and revenues surpassing the consensus mark. We are encouraged by the company’s solid international performance on strong growth in the emerging markets of China, South Korea and India. Also, a series of product launches along with major progress in precision medicine initiatives aided Thermo Fisher’s performance. Moreover, the Patheon buyout has substantially adding an impetus to the company’s value proposition for biopharma customers. Notably, it has already started to prove accretive to Thermo Fisher’s Laboratory Products and Services segment. The company has outperformed its industry in the past year. On the flip side, in the reported quarter, Thermo Fisher’s business segments were impacted by unfavorable business mix. Also, competitive headwinds and rising operating costs continue to pose a threat.”

    Shares of NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES) recently tumbled after the Chinese tech company posted mixed first-quarter numbers. Its revenue rose 4% annually to 14.2 billion yuan ($2.3 billion), which beat estimates by $120 million. Unfortunately, its non-GAAP net income plunged 69% to 1.34 billion yuan ($213 million), or $1.61 per diluted ADS (American depositary share) — which missed estimates by 36 cents.

    One of last week’s big winners was iQiyi (NASDAQ:IQ). Shares of China’s leading streaming video provider moved 13.47% higher for the week, fueled largely by a general bounce in Chinese growth stocks. iQiyi also benefited from being tapped for a pair of prolific company lists, but it was essentially a big week for China’s dot-com darlings to recover after tariffs-related weakness in recent weeks. Even a slight diss within a bullish analyst note on Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU) couldn’t hold the stock back.

    The stock market didn’t see much volatility on Friday, with most major benchmarks finishing the session very close to where they had started. Without much in the way of market-moving news on the national or global front, most investors instead paid attention to the cross-currents involved with monthly options expirations. Some other parts of the financial markets were more interesting, with bond yields easing a bit lower after their big upward push earlier in the week and oil prices taking a break from their recent surge. Yet some individual companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares lower. Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), GameStop (NYSE:GME), and Opko Health (NASDAQ:OPK) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Dylan Lewis: This property just got spun out of Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU) fairly recently. Shares have not been trading all that long. And in that time, we’ve seen the usual fluctuations that you might expect from a new issuance hitting the public markets. Some of that is due to some recent developments that are helping the company out.

Top 10 China Stocks To Own For 2019

A hacking group known as Thrip has launched cyberattacks on two U.S. satellite companies, a private company that sells geospatial imaging technology, and a defense contractor from a location in China. Three Southeast Asian telecom operators were also attacked.

The attacks were publicly reported Tuesday by researchers at Symantec, who discovered the attacks late last year and reported them to the U.S. government earlier this year.

The researchers first spotted Thrip in 2013, but the group went dormant in 2015 following an agreement between Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Barack Obama on cyberattacks against economic targets. According to CyberScoop, the agreement did not cover conventional espionage targets like defense contractors and federal agencies.

In the new attacks that started late last year when talk of a U.S.-China trade war heated up, Thrip combines readily available tools that are used for legitimate purposes and can be used by malicious actors to insert malware into their targeted systems. Using these tools and adding custom-built attacking software allowed Thrip to steal credentials, move easily through a company’s computer network and insert more remote access backdoors to give themselves wider access to targeted systems.

    iQiyi has the advantage of being backed by one of the world’s most advanced AI leaders. The company was spun off in March from Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU), China’s largest internet search engine and a world leader in AI. Baidu, which retains a roughly 70% stake in its streaming offshoot, is already providing the company with AI and data analytics services, and has plans to continue providing its subsidiary with more support in these fields.

    In this segment of the Motley Fool Moneypodcast, host Chris Hill and senior Fool analysts Jason Moser, David Kretzmann, and Jeff Fischer put Baidu(NASDAQ:BIDU) under the microscope. 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. But the stock is still only trading for six times revenue. Time to give it a look?

    Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, and action in different parts of the market showed mixed signals for investors. On one hand, small-cap stocks moved higher, with key benchmarks in that area hitting record highs. Yet the better-known large-cap stock indexes like the S&P 500 gave up early gains. Looking more closely at individual stocks, some companies suffered from bad news that sent their shares falling. J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP), NetEase (NASDAQ:NTES), and Jounce Therapeutics (NASDAQ:JNCE) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.
