Hot Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

Equity investors in China are taking a flyer on a strategy that hasn’t worked in years, speculating small caps will soar on the country’s sweeping plans to invigorate its fastest-growing firms.

China’s three most popular exchange-traded funds in 2018 all track smaller stocks, luring some $3 billion in net new assets, data compiled by Bloomberg show. While that’s a tiny slice of the nation’s $7.4 trillion equity market, it’s nearly 60 percent of all the cash that’s gone into stock funds trading in Shanghai or Shenzhen, according to the data.

Small caps have borne the brunt of China’s deleveraging campaign since the 2015 stock bubble burst on concern they would struggle to cope with soaring funding costs. Though the ChiNext is once again down for the year, it’s holding up better than a gauge tracking blue chips, a small win after it largely missed out on a two-year global bull market.

“China’s push to encourage domestic listings of unicorn companies has triggered interest in small caps,” said Patrick Dai, head of A-share research at Macquarie Commodities and Global Markets Group in Shanghai. “Investors are positioning for a potential rally in new-economy sectors because those listings would boost market sentiment.”
