Five Best China Stocks to Watch Now

Apple shares fell 3.7% to 125.07 on Tuesday, ending last week’s bear market and hitting their worst level since June 2021.

Shares of AAPL, which topped $3 trillion intraday in early 2022, fell below $2 trillion for the first time since March 2021. Apple shares closed on Tuesday with a market value of $1.988 trillion. It is still the most valuable company in the world.

Bloomberg reports that the giant Foxconn iPhone factory in China has restored up to 90% capacity. But Apple is reducing orders for AirPods, MacBooks and Apple Watch products.

AAPL shares rose early Wednesday, despite Wedbush cutting its price target to 175 from 200.

Tesla shares

Tesla shares fell 12.2% to 108.10, off last week’s bear market lows and hitting their worst level since August 2020. It was the EV giant’s worst one-day loss in more than two years. TSLA stock is already down 37% in December and 65% for 2022.

Tesla deliveries hit a record high in Q4, but for the second quarter in a row they were well short of lower estimates and actual production. This was despite big end-of-year promotions to boost sales, particularly in China and the US.

With new Tesla EV orders well below the current delivery rate, the outlook for 2023 could be bleak.

Bernstein’s Toni Sacconaghi wrote on Sunday that “Tesla’s 4Q annual order rate was just ~1 million units including significant discounts, and the company aims to sell close to 2 million units in 2023 without any new models.”

With a shrinking backlog, Tesla may need price cuts or incentives well above year-end offerings to maintain its Q4 2023 delivery pace.

Stock market analysis

The stock market started strong in 2023 – 12 minutes. After that, the major indices pulled back sharply, though they hit intraday lows.

The Dow Jones edged lower after briefly crossing above its 50-day and 21-day lines. The S&P 500 and Russell 2000 fell below 21-day lines.

The Nasdaq bounced back after nearing its 21-day line.

Shares of Tesla and Apple were big drags on the major indexes. But there was a broad-based pushback. Energy stocks were the big losers in key prices.

Many interesting stocks opened higher but then fell with the major indices, such as Mobileye, Celsius (CELH) and Medspace (MEDP).

Eli Lilly and Caterpillar, along with related defensive growth names, held up relatively well. LLY stock is testing its 50-day/10-week lines.

China-based stocks, especially internet stocks Pinduoduo (PDD) and plays like a Macau casino las vegas sands (LVS), bucked the trend, but they also went higher.

The major indices eventually pared their losses, but returns from key technical levels were not encouraging. Many stocks fell hard and did not come back. The stock market is trying to rally thanks to last Thursday’s gains, but it looks like a one-day bounce.

The market is in a correction, not far from the Nasdaq bear market low. Even if the rallying effort gains momentum and takes stages follow-up day there will still be a number of technical hurdles to overcome in the next week or two.

Market Timing with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What to do now

It is not a good time to take new positions. This is a market correction with major indices, sectors and individual sectors prone to reversals.

Don’t be fooled by sudden market bursts that push stocks into buy zones. A number of stocks gave buy signals within minutes on Tuesday, but most quickly faded. While major indexes ended with modest losses, an investor who jumped into MBLY shares near Tuesday’s open could now be sitting on a 10% loss.

Conclusion: Don’t act like the market is in an uptrend until the market is actually in an uptrend.

Still, many good stocks continue to trade near buy points, while an attempted market rally could lead to a follow-up in the coming days. So create your watch lists and get busy.
