A Gathering Storm of Political Risk.
The fourth quarter is shaping up as a veritable cauldron of political risk over much of the world.
Over the weekend, China Daily, China’s official Communist Party house organ, reportedly said that the United States and South Korea would “pay the price” for deploying an advanced ballistic missile system to protect the free portion of the peninsula from Kim Jong-un’s increasingly erratic missile testing to the north.
In the Philippines, President Duterte is making it apparent that he is unlikely to further accommodate his nation’s more than century-old alliance with the United States. Duterte has asserted that the US-Filipino joint military exercises that just commenced will be the last of his remaining six-year term in office. He has also spoken favorably of the Chinese and Russians who, he says, were supportive of his angry rebuttal of what Duterte viewed as President Obama’s interference in the Philippines’s Drug War.

Top 10 China Stocks For 2019: Netease.com Inc.(NTES)

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.

Argersinger:Right.I don’t think this is getting enough press, because I think it is a big catalyst. Most of our listeners might not know that theaverage Chinese domestic investor cannot buy shares inBaidu(NASDAQ:BIDU) orTencentorAlibaba,which seems strange, right? The reason is,these are foreign-listed companies. They’re obviously Chinese companies,they do 90% of their operations in China,but they’re foreign-listed. Many of them are listed in the Cayman Islands, for example. That’s just for tax and reporting purposes.TheChinese government forbids most investors from buying shares directlyin those companies.
