Read This Before Buying Chinese Stocks

This article was originally published on this site

In today’s video I look at the recent news affecting DiDi Global (NYSE:DIDI)Full Truck Alliance (NYSE:YMM), and Kanzhun Limited (NASDAQ:BZ). Below I share a few highlights from the video. 

  1. China has launched cybersecurity reviews on the three companies and some of their subsidiaries. At the moment these companies are not allowed to register new users. The lack of growth from new users can leave negative fundamental changes to these high-growth companies. 
  2. Douyu (NASDAQ:DOYU) and Huya (NYSE:HUYA) are also down after articles have surfaced on the web stating that China’s antitrust regulators will formally block the planned merger of these two companies. 
  3. Before investing in Chinese companies, investors should have a plan and remember the risk. Limiting a portfolio to a set percentage exposure in a stock or even in a country can help long-term investors during these volatile times.
