Chinese Stocks on the Warpath

Chinese stocks went on the warpath Wednesday morning after state media vowed to ensure financial stability in these tumultuous times. Those keeping track know that Chinese stocks have gotten thrashed over the past 52 weeks, with some of the most well-known names down over 80%. While now might be a good time for some bottom-feeding, especially with global markets having pulled back so far, China is taking it to the extreme.

According to Chinese state media, President Xi Jinping’s government has pledged to ensure stability in capital markets, support overseas stock listings and complete its crackdown on “Big Tech” that took off last summer. The People’s Bank of China has pledged support as well and will be implementing policies to help ensure these goals. Yet, it is unclear what actually will happen when the rubber meets the road.

Though Chinese stocks are rallying earlier this week, a huge Wall Street player issued a bundle of negative calls on Chinese stocks. So, did this investment house get the calls wrong, or is this something that the markets will have to wait out?
