China ADRs Sink on Report U.S. Eyeing Alibaba, Tencent Bans

(Bloomberg) -- Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd. tumbled, pulling down other Chinese stocks that trade in the U.S. after a report the U.S. is considering adding the two internet heavyweights to the China stock ban that has whipsawed some Asian-based companies this week.

Shares slumped on Wednesday after Dow Jones reported that U.S. officials are considering expanding a list of companies prohibited from receiving U.S. investments. Other actively-traded peers including Nio Inc., JD.com Inc., and Pinduoduo Inc. also fell.

The New York Stock Exchange earlier announced plans to proceed with the delisting of China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp. and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. after a pair of about-faces on the future of the firms. The report fueled some panic as investors were confused by what’s next for the U.S.’s growing blacklist of companies it sees as tied to China’s military and security services.

The closely-watched iShares China Large-Cap ETF fell 1.2% while the NASDAQ Golden Dragon China Index, which tracks other large Chinese technology stocks, dropped 2.1% for its worst day since November. Alibaba fell 5.3%, Tencent slumped 4% and JD.com slipped 7.7%.

Alibaba ADRs and Tencent ADRs see daily trading volume on average of 18.6 million and 3.8 million, respectively, far outstripping the volume of trades in the U.S. for the three telecom stocks.
