Hong Kong Stocks Outperform Their Chinese Equivalents


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2021 -- The future looks bright for Hong Kong listed technology stocks, as they are currently on track to leave their mainland China counterparts for dust. Investors are being attracted to easing regulatory issues as well as cheaper valuations and the result is that HK tech stocks are outperforming China equivalents at a higher level than any time in the past three years. The Hang Seng Tech Index jumped by 10% in October while the ChiNet Index saw a gain of just 1.2%. Quantitative strategists across the world have already started to pick up that China's growth stocks are now very reasonably valued. Companies that are not trading at extreme multiples are starting to appear on quant screens. The shift in trading performance represents the biggest gap between Hong Kong listed tech stocks and those in China since January 2019 and will come as good news for those who were hoping to see the market pick up in this way.
