The Upside of the Downtrodden: A Positive Look at Top Chinese Tech Stocks

For the past three years, investors in Chinese tech stocks have endured a rough ride. However, current valuations and other favorable catalysts are making these stocks more appealing than ever. The prolonged struggle has led to a significant number of investors holding large short positions, forming a compelling contrarian case.

Certainly, concerns about the weak economy and geopolitical risk in China have made potential investors wary. Nevertheless, the exodus from these stocks has created an opportunity, much like the best fishing grounds being in uncrowded waters.

Adding to the allure, Chinese banking authorities are injecting liquidity into the economy, which is expected to provide a tailwind. Furthermore, the appealing valuations of these stocks limit the downside, as they likely trade below intrinsic value, even as analysts raise earnings estimates.

Additionally, with the China Internet ETF KWEB down 75% from its peak, technical signs point to a potential bottom. Observing the bullish wedge pattern, a breakout above $27.25 could signal the start of a new bull run.

On the flip side, failure to sustain levels above $24.50 may indicate otherwise.
