UBS and Blackrock upgrade Chinese equities after recent selloff

Chinese equities show potential for a turnaround after Blackrock and UBS upgrades. However, the Evergrande issue should ensure further short-term volatility.

Chinese shares have been a big underperformer over the course of the past four months, with the CSI 300 losing 17% over the period going into yesterday’s low.

With the seemingly inevitable default of property giant Evergrande coming back into focus today, there are still risks despite the sharp rebound yesterday.

However, there are certainly some key players that see the recent slump as an opportunity to get long Chinese equities. Many will take confidence that the world’s biggest asset manager has decided to move back into Chinese stocks, while UBS has also shifted to overweight after 16-months at underweight.

The CSI 300 weekly chart highlights how we have seen a drop back into the 200-week simple moving average (SMA) this week, with the recent pullback looking like another potential higher low.

With the Evergrande issue still yet to be fully resolved, we are likely to see further volatility ahead. However, the fact that the Chinese government and regulators are taking actions to lessen the economic risks posed by overleverage could provide the basis of a bullish story for growth over the medium term.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
