: China stocks enjoy big, broad rally as Shanghai moves toward lifting COVID lockdown measures


The U.S.-listed shares of China-based companies traded broadly higher Tuesday, as investors were emboldened by the major steps to be taken to lift COVID-19-lockdown measures in Shanghai.

The Invesco Golden Dragon China exchange-traded fund

charged up 4.6% in morning trading, with more than three-quarters of its active components enjoying gains, to buck the weakness in the broader stock market. That put the ETF (PGJ), which is comprised of U.S.-listed shares of companies based in the People’s Republic of China, on track for the highest close since May 4.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index

shed 0.9% and the Nasdaq Composite Index

lost 0.8%.

The PGJ’s most active component was electric vehicle-maker NIO Inc.’s stock
which ran up 4.3%. It has soared 18.1% amid a four-day win streak, and has rocketed 36.0% since closing at a 22-month low of $12.71 on May 11.

Also seeing heavy trading, shares of KE Holdings Inc.

shot up 10.9% after the housing transactions platform reported a wider-than-expected first-quarter loss but revenue that beat forecasts, while ecommerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.’s stock

rallied 3.2%.

Shanghai authorities said they will take measures on Wednesday to reopen Shanghai, China’s largest city, as the Associated Press reported. That fueled investor optimism for a quick rebound in country’s economy, which is the world’s second largest.

Among some other more-active American depositary shares (ADS) of China-based companies, Pinduoduo Inc.

ran up 5.9% toward a three-month high, and have soared 38.4% amid a four-day win streak. Benchmark analyst Fawne Jiang reiterated the buy rating and $85 stock price target, which implied about 66% upside from current levels, after the mobile marketplace had reported on Friday big profit and revenue beats for its first-quarter.

Elsewhere, the ADS of iQIYI Inc.

rose 1.8%, Inc.

climbed 5.7%, DiDi Global Inc.

tacked on 0.5%, Tencent Music Entertainment Group

advanced 2.3% and Bilibili Inc.

jumped 8.6%.

The Golden Dragon China ETF has dropped 21.9% year to date, while the S&P 500 has lost 13.6% and the Nasdaq has tumbled 23.1%.
