Author: Eugene Savitsky
Dear Clients and Partners,
This overview is devoted to a popular stock index Russell 2000: its contents, its differences from the S&P 500, and ways of trading it.
What is Russell 2000?
The Chinese government would never leave stock market investors in peace. After the market of commercial education was destroyed, which was confirmed by the 90% decline of the share price of New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. (NYSE: EDUCATION), TAL Education Group (NYSE: TAL), and Gaotu Techedu Inc. (NYSE: GOTU), any criticism of any sector of business becomes a signal for new tough regulations. For example, a banal article in the state-controlled media, in which online games were compares to "spirit opium" for adolescents, led to a decline of the share price of such companies as Tencent Holdings Ltd ADR (OTC: TCEHY), NetEase Inc (NASDAQ: NTES), and Bilibili Inc (NASDAQ: BILI). However, even in such circumstances, investors show interest towards Chinese companies.
The famous ARK Invest manager Cathie Wood earlier sold Chinese stocks with a loss, but after JD.com (NASDAQ: JD) and Pinduoduo (NASDAQ: PDF), she decided to invest in Chinese companies again. All in all, market players see the risks of investments in Chinese companies but cannot withstand the temptation to buy stocks.
In this article, I suggest taking a look at the Chinese market and tell you about 3 companies the shares of which might grow when business regulations in China stabilize.
Who is the real rival of Tesla in China?
We have got used to thinking that the main rival of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) in China is NIO. But if we look at the statistics of cars sold in the Chinese market in Q2, we will see that this is a misleading idea. By the end of Q2, Boyd Gaming had sold 54,841 fully electric cars. NIO sold 21,896 electric cars. Tesla sold 61,745 electric cars in China, so Boyd Gaming looks more like the main rival.
Apart from electric cars the company also sells hybrid vehicles, and in this sector, dynamics are positive every month. For example, in July Boyd Gaming sold 50,492 hybrid cars, which is 170% more than in July 2020.
The advantage of Boyd Gaming against such Chinese car-makers as NIO, Spent, Like auto, is that the former is profitable. By the end of Q2, it had venerated 113 million USD of net profit.
Buffett invests in director-general of Boyd Gaming Corporation
There is one more detail that might seem tiny yet it supports the idea of investing in Boyd Gaming. 11 years ago, Warren Buffett broke his rule to invest in those companies the business of which he understood and invested in Boyd Gaming. He later admitted that he knew little about either electric cars or batteries. Buffett was impressed by the director-general of the company Wáng Chuánfú, or, more precisely, the description of this person given by Buffett's affiliate Charles Munger. Munger told the Fortune Magazine that "the guy" was a combination of Thomas Edison and Jack Welch. Something like Edison on the technical side and Welch in the sense that he did what he wanted to.
That time Berkshire Hathaway bought 10% of Boyd Gaming. On the chart of 11 years ago, the shares cost about 10 USD. Last spring, the stock price dropped to this level but then aimed directly upwards. Now the shares cost 62 USD. It is important for us because Wáng Chuánfú does still manage the company.
Tech analysis of Boyd Gaming
Previously, Boyd Gaming shares bounced off the 200-days Moving Average and are trading above it, which indicates a prevalent uptrend. The nearest resistance level is 65 USD. If the price breaks it away, it will grow again and renew the all-time high of 71 USD.
The Chinese authorities are trying to improve the demographic situation in the country, so they are now busy looking for those in charge of the slow-down in this sphere (the law one family-one child is apparently forgotten). As a result, the stock market is in turmoil as no one knows when those responsible will be punished and who turns out to be blamed. In the meantime, the government fights monopolies, which makes the market even more nervous. The market is also getting cleaned from companies that cannot pay off their debts, i.e. the authorities reject to help. All this makes investments super risky, so think of it if you decide to put your money in Chinese companies.
