Stifel analyst Scott Devitt cut his rating on American depository shares of JD.com Inc. to hold from buy midday Monday, after the Chinese e-commerce company reported a mixed third quarter and delivered a disappointing holiday-quarter outlook. "We believe the slowing macroeconomic backdrop in China coupled with intense e-commerce competition will continue to pressure core operating results, working against the long path to margin expansion," he wrote. "JD.com trades well below comparable eCommerce companies at 0.3x enterprise value to 2020 revenue, though limited visibility stemming from the macro, the ongoing investment cycle, and current uncertainty surrounding key person risk cause us to move to the sidelines." Devitt highlighted a 3% sequential drop in the number of annual active customers on JD's platform though noted that the company's margins came in ahead of expectations. JD.com's ADSs are off nearly 6% in Monday afternoon trading, and they're down 46% over the past 12 months. The S&P 500 has gained 4.4% in that time, while the KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF has fallen 29%.
The U.S. and China are engaged in an ongoing trade spat, but that is not hindering the rapid growth of China's Internet sector. The KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF (KWEB) is down 22.44% year-to-date, confirming that the king of China Internet exchange traded funds is following other emerging markets assets lower this year, but fundamental data paint a more positive picture. The gap between Chinese Internet stocks and their U.S. equivalents this year is stark and that could be a buying a opportunity for investors considering China.
The 40 or so China stock ETFs have returned anywhere from 5% to a loss of nearly 40%. A look at why reveals the good and bad of different index investing strategies.
China's latest GDP numbers may have slowed to 6.5% year-over-year in the third quarter, missing expectations of 6.6%, but the Direxion Daily FTSE China Bull 3X ETF (YINN) is up 4.56%. The bulls overtaking the bears was evident in the biggest China ETFs based on total assets--iShares China Large-Cap ETF (NYSEArca: FXI) was up 2.07%, iShares MSCI China ETF (MCHI) rose 1.48% and KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF (KWEB) gained slightly at 0.10% as of 2:45 p.m. ET. Chinese regulators have already sought measures to defuse risks related to shares used as collateral for loans, while the recent declines in the country's stock market have created a good buying opportunity, Liu a member of the politburo of the ruling Communist Party of China, told the People's Daily - the party mouthpiece.
As a result, top Chinese officials from the People's Bank of China issued public statements to help quell the fear in the markets. "The recent stock market volatility is primarily the result of investor expectations and emotions," said the Chairman of the People's Bank of China, Yi Gang. China Securities Regulatory Commission Chairman Liu Shiyu issued a separate statement to help re-instill confidence in the capital markets.

Trade wars have been a major market mover for Chinese equities and if investors can look past the news headlines to zero in on value, China-focused ETFs like the Direxion Daily CSI China Internet Index Bull 2X Shares (CWEB) could be a double-down play as the shift from U.S. equities becomes more apparent heading deeper into the late market cycle. CWEB seeks the daily investment results equal to 200% of the daily performance of the CSI Overseas China Internet Index. The fund is comprised of assets that track the index and other financial instruments providing daily leveraged exposure to the index or ETFs that track the index, which is designed to measure the performance of the investable universe of publicly traded China-based companies whose primary business or businesses are in the Internet and Internet-related sectors.
The capital markets possibly got an early smoke signal that the current bull run in U.S. equities might be stopping for air as the latest consumer price index numbers showed inflation rose at a slower pace than expected. During this bull run that has seen a heavy emphasis on growth-oriented plays, U.S. equities have been the default maneuver, but that may change with a steady shift to value, which could benefit China and emerging markets. While the stock market has been largely tepid this week, the major indexes returned to their upward trajectory as the Dow, Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 all saw gains in today's trading session, helped, in part, by renewed trade talks between the U.S. and China.
It is hard to ignore an obvious theme among emerging markets stocks this year. Weakness is Chinese equities is dragging on major developing world benchmarks, such as the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. Last year, the KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF ( KWEB), widely viewed as the benchmark exchange-traded fund (ETF) focusing on Chinese internet stocks, returned a staggering 69.70% while the domestically focused First Trust Dow Jones Internet ETF ( FDN) returned a paltry-by-comparison 37.60%.
Chinese stocks rallied Monday, with technology-related ETFs taking the lead, after the People's Bank of China signaled it would take a more proactive approach to combating a stronger U.S. dollar and uncertainty surrounding the trade war between Washington D.C. and Beijing. Additionally, the broader iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI) added 1.9% and Xtrackers CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF (NYSEArca: ASHR ) , which tracks mainland Chinese A-shares, increased 2.2%, with both testing their short-term resistance at the 50-day simple moving average. The China-related ETFs strengthened on a more optimistic outlook on the yuan currency.
China country-specific exchange traded funds, led by technology focused strategies, were among the best performers Monday ahead of trade talks between the U.S. and China. On Monday, the technology-heavy PowerShares Golden Dragon China Portfolio (PGJ) rose 2.7% and KraneShares CSI China Internet Fund (KWEB) gained 2.2%. Traders were largely optimistic as a delegation led by China’s vice commerce minister, Wang Shouwen, is expected to conduct two days of trade talks in Washington beginning Wednesday, marking the first formal negotiations since Washington imposed tariffs on $50bn of Chinese imports, the Financial Times reports.
