Chinese stocks followed through on Wednesday, setting the stage for several more days of gains, as many of the stocks we are trading are breaking above resistance today. This post is a continuation from the review we did this morning, in our pre-market post.
Chinese Stocks – Catalyst – BABA Ant Approval
Alibaba (BABA) stock gapped up on Wednesday, adding (+12.98%) to an already impressive move that started on Tuesday (+4.54%). Most analysts attribute the outsized move to Beijing’s approval to a massive capital increase. Jack Ma’s Ant Financial Group can now raise $1.5 billion for the tech giant’s consumer finance unit. Alibaba owns 33% of Ant.
Alibaba (BABA) stock finally regained its 200-day moving average on Wednesday. Price action surged to the highest level since the August 26 pivot and 50d moving average resistance at $104.85.
Volume was above average, adding to the impressive performance.
RS line is heading higher (78).
Alibaba Trading at a Discount
Fundamental catalysts abound as well, with Alibaba trading at a discount to sales, a discount to EBITDA, a discount to free cash flow (FCF), and a discount to operatings earnings.
Free cash flow is estimated to grow 45.50% in 2023.
