    Read This Before You Sell Your Chinese Tech Stocks

    It's been a tough year for Chinese tech stocks, which were torpedoed by the country's escalating trade war with the U.S. and rising interest rates. Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU), Alibaba (NYSE: BABA), and Tencent (NASDAQOTH: TCEHY) -- the three high-growth "BAT" stocks, which were often compared to the FANG stocks in the U.S. -- each lost more than 20% of their value over the past 12 months. Investors sitting on those big declines are probably wondering if it's time to sell all their Chinese stocks.

    Oil Rises as Saudi Arabia Vows to Hit Back Against Any Sanctions

    The warning came after President Donald Trump pledged “severe punishment” should Saudi Arabia be linked to Khashoggi’s disappearance. If Saudi Arabia does use its crude resources to hit back, it would be a break from its decades-old policy of putting petroleum above politics. The kingdom had used energy as a weapon when it led an oil embargo in 1973-1974 during a war between Israel and a coalition of Arab states.

    Boeing (NYSE: BA) and General Electric (NYSE: GE) are two industrial heavyweights that have been moving in opposite directions in recent years. Boeing shares are up 164% during the past three years, while shares of GE are down 52% during the same period. The reasons the stocks have moved the way they have are well-documented: Boeing is benefiting from perhaps the longest-running commercial aircraft order up-cycle in history, while GE has been plagued by its massive debt load and a slowdown in the energy sector.

    Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MMP), PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), and ExxonMobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM) are all high yielding dividend payers with long histories of increasing their dividends on a regular basis. Magellan has long been one of the most conservative midstream partnerships, focusing on self-funding as much of its growth as it can to avoid dilutive unit sales -- a model which peer and industry bellwether Enterprise Products Partners L.P. is starting to mimic. This conservative approach, however, doesn't mean the company is skimping on growth.
