Some 2021 Asia-Pacific IPOs have seen a sharp reversal in their fortunes since their strong market debuts.

At the top of the list is Chinese short video company and Tiktok-rival Kuaishou, which more than doubled from its issue price during its February debut. It was the only Asia listing among this year’s top five largest IPOs globally by deal size, according to Morningstar.

 

As of Wednesday’s market close in Hong Kong, however, the stock sat 77% below those first day gains.

Elsewhere, shares of Indonesian e-commerce firm Bukalapak have also tumbled hard after rising almost 25% on day one of trading. The stock is now 57% below those levels, as of Wednesday’s close.

Another Chinese stock that has plunged from its debut gains is JD Logistics, which raised more than $3 billion in its IPO. The stock was 36% below its first day closing price, based on its Wednesday close.

Those losses follow a number of issues including Beijing’s ongoing crackdown on China’s tech sector, which led to giants like Alibaba and Meituan being slapped with massive fines.

U.S. Treasury yields have also risen as the Federal Reserve signals it will soon begin to normalize monetary policy. Under such conditions, investors tend to avoid stocks in sectors like tech. These stocks could be hurt by rising rates which affect a company’s ability to fund growth and also makes future cash flows less valuable.

 

The fast-spreading omicron Covid variant has also further weighed on investor sentiment in recent weeks and dampened risk appetite, with questions remaining over the new strain’s potential economic impact. Full story on CNBC

    • Hi @Adnan_The_Barbarian Your request has been submitted. Thank youAll the best - MongiIG
    • Charting the Markets: 4 October FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq breaking higher as bulls return to the fold. EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at Y145 again. And Brent crude oil and gold rally on falling US dollar and US natural gas prices.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • GBP/USD - PRICES, CHARTS, AND ANALYSIS Sterling rallying hard as gilt market turmoil subsides. There remain plenty of Sterling headwinds. A big shift in GBP positioning as net-longs are slashed and net-shorts jump. Sterling is pushing higher against the US dollar, and has made back all of its recent ‘mini-budget’ sell-off, as the greenback fades lower. The recent turn lower in US Treasury yields, sparked by fears that the US central bank is moving interest rates too high, too fast, has helped to stall the multi-month sell-off in cable. The pair are now back at the March 2020 swing-low around 1.1410, a level that stalled price action prior to the collapse   Oct 4, 2022  Nick Cawley, Strategist | DailyFX
