In this article, we discuss 10 stocks to buy as virus restrictions are lifted in China. If you want to read about some more stocks to buy as virus restrictions are lifted in China, go directly to 5 Stocks to Buy As Virus Restrictions Are Lifted in China.

In early June, the Chinese government approved at least 60 new video game licenses. The approval triggered a series of positive developments in the technology sector of the country, with the Hang Seng Tech Index jumping close to 5% amid a broad rally in the prices of prominent Chinese stocks like Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA), Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU), and NIO Inc. (NYSE:NIO). The approvals were important since they indicated that a year-long crackdown by Beijing against dual-listed companies was nearing an end. 

In the past twelve months, this crackdown has wiped nearly $2 trillion in market capitalization from the technology sector in China. Last year, Beijing had imposed strict restrictions on video games amid broad-reaching measures designed to “curb addiction” among young adults. Chinese tech IPOs, which had raised billions in blockbuster debuts on the US market, had also stopped during the crackdown. As restrictions ease, the market has been boosted by reports that these IPOs may soon resume as well. 

Analysts Turn Positive on China Tech Sector, Citizens Brace for "New Start"

Even though the Hang Seng Tech Index has climbed nearly 40% from its lows in March, it is still nearly 51% below the highs it reached in 2021 before the crackdown began. Analysts have been upgrading their forecasts on China as well. Per news platform Bloomberg, Ayaz Ebrahim, a portfolio manager at investment bank JPMorgan, has claimed that investors can “get more juice out of China” in the coming six-month period. Winnie Wu, a China equity strategist at Bank of America Securities, has also predicted a broad rally in the internet sector during the period. 

The broad rally in Chinese tech stocks has also helped growth investors that were being battered due to rising inflation and interest rates in the US. The easing of virus-related restrictions in China since late May as coronavirus cases decline is also helping fuel the positivity around Chinese stocks. On May 31, Yin Xin, a spokesperson for the municipal government in Shanghai, told state-sponsored Global Times the city was embracing a “new start” and the daily briefing on the coronavirus would no longer take place.

Our Methodology

The companies that are best positioned to rise as virus restrictions are lifted in China were selected for the list. The firms that have registered an increase of at least 7% in their share price over the past month were preferred for the list. The business fundamentals and analyst ratings of these firms are also discussed to provide further context. An extensive database of around 900 elite hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey in the first quarter of 2022 was used to identify the popularity of each stock among hedge funds.
