Top five Chinese stocks to watch right now
Dubbed the ‘Magnificent Seven’, giant stocks did well in 2023, sending the market higher. But there is no doubt that Nvidia is the stock and company of 2023 that will lead the AI revolution.
NVDA stock rose 5.4% to 485.09 over the past week, rebounding from its 21-day line to a new closing high on Thursday before falling 1.7% on Friday. Nvidia stock is still in the range from the buy point of 480.88, although it is close to the extended 50-day line.
With Nvidia’s clear lead in AI in an AI-driven market, can investors afford not to invest in this name?
AMZN stock rebounded from the 50-day/10-week line to start the week, then rose from the 21-day line on Thursday, and also broke a short trend line. that offered early entry. Shares rose 3.65% to 138.12. Amazon stock is on a short consolidation process that could turn into its own base. One can look at the recent pause as an indication of the year-long consolidation.
Apple stock rose 6.1% to 189.46 last week, decisively retracing the 50-day moving average, providing an early entry. AAPL stock has an official buy point of 198.23 from the base of the cup. Apple’s very mediocre fundamentals are a concern. Tech giant Dow is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 15 at an event on September 12th.
Google shares rose 4.45% last week to 135.66. Stocks cleared the short self-consolidation just above the previous base. This provided a new buy point at 133.74. The RSI line has been trending higher for several weeks now.
META rose by 3.8% over the past week to 296.38, but hit resistance at the 50-day line over the past few days. A decisive move above that level, just below 300, would provide an early entry. Meta Stock is running its first new rule since March, but it won’t be official until another week.
MSFT stock pulled back from a record high of 366.78 on July 18, with some significant losses in volume around its earnings report. Stocks rebounded modestly, albeit on a lighter volume. Microsoft stock rose 1.8% to 328.66 for the week, but ran into resistance at the now declining 50-day line on Friday. A decisive move above this level could provide an early entry, although the sliding RSI is not a great sign. MSFT stock has an official consolidation buy point of 366.78, according to MarketSmith analysis.
Tesla stock rose again above the 50-day line on Tuesday, but did not decisively clear this key level. Then shares fell 5.1% on Friday to the 21-day high. However, TSLA stock rose by 2.7% over the week to 245.01. A move above Thursday’s high of 261.18 could provide an early entry for the electric car giant. Tesla stock has a consolidated buy point of 299.29.
Tesla unveiled an updated Model 3 in China on Friday, and the high price tag came as somewhat of a surprise. But this news may have been expected. Meanwhile, Tesla also sharply cut the prices of the Model S and X in the United States, while also lowering the price of the FSD to $12,000 from $15,000.
The moves undercut the bullish argument that Tesla’s price cuts are almost over, with margins picking up on the back of the refreshed Model 3 and upcoming Cybertruck.
Market rally analysis
It was a big bullish week for the stock market rally. Major indices rose back above their 50-day moving averages on the follow-up day on Tuesday, just three trading days after the ugly bearish reversal on Aug. 24.
Growth stocks are leading the charge, including Nvidia, but the leadership is expanding.
Major indices were technically mixed on Friday, but showed resilience given the significant rebound in Treasury yields. The Nasdaq fell only slightly because of a handful of corporate behemoths, notably Tesla, Nvidia and Nvidia stocks Broadcom (Avgo).
The market breadth is improving, as the winners outpace the losers through Friday.
The Russell 2000 moved above the 50-day line on Friday, with banking stocks bouncing on a less inverted yield curve. However, the Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP) struggles on this major level.
Meanwhile, the Dow Jones is testing the 21-day and 50-day lines, although they are holding for the time being. However, this is a reminder that it wouldn’t take much for the S&P 500 or even the Nasdaq to break down the 50 day lines.
Growth stocks still look strong, and energy names came out late in the week as crude oil prices rose again. Meanwhile, the housing sector, industries, metals, insurance brokers and others are showing strength or improving.
It is possible that the NASDAQ and the broader stock market will continue to rise, although the pause would not be surprising. This may allow a few arrows to build up the right side of the bases or form handles.
Earnings season is about to end, even given the economic calendar next week. Hence, it is possible to subdue the main risks.
