    China’s Sneakerheads Chase 6,600% Returns Flipping Air Jordans

    (Bloomberg) -- One of the hottest commodities in China right now is a pair of sneakers.The SoleFly x Air Jordan 1 in black patent leather rocketed in value by 6,600% to a high of 75,999 yuan ($10,730) on the online marketplace Nice after its release in December. Only 223 pairs of Nike Inc.’s retro high-top were made for sale, according to online magazine Sneaker Files.The model is among the most profitable sneakers traded on the exchange created by Beijing-based Nice App Mobile Technology Co. Such outsize returns are hard to come by, but they've nonetheless caught the attention of sneakerheads like Lei Xiaoming, 20, a mechanical engineering student in Huangshi.Lei has collected limited-edition shoes for years but only started investing in them in April. “Prices were surging so much I thought it would be a better choice to sell them rather than wear them,” he said. “It’s more exciting than trading stocks.”Since then, he's spent about 200,000 yuan buying more than 200 pairs—mostly Air Jordans and Adidas AG’s Yeezy line, a collaboration with rapper Kanye West. He’s earned profits of about 100,000 yuan by reselling some, he said.Across China, more than 10 million monthly active users frequent online-resale apps, such as Poizon, Nice and DoNew, according to Chinese data-mining company QuestMobile. While many products suffer from the effects of the trade war, pairs of collectible sneakers are flying off the shelves, and that’s attracting the attention of U.S. sneaker exchanges StockX and GOAT—as well as China’s central bank and state media.“China will soon become the sneaker capital of the world”Most of what’s traded on these platforms are basketball sneakers—a testament to China’s love of the sport, even as the NBA faces backlash for a Houston Rockets executive’s tweet appearing to support Hong Kong’s protests.The buzz over shoe reselling made a unicorn out of Poizon, developed by Shanghai Shizhuang Information Technology Co. In April, funding from Digital Sky Technologies vaulted its valuation to $1 billion, according to CB Insights. China’s sneaker-resale market exceeds $1 billion in value, said Scott Cutler, chief executive officer of Detroit-based sneaker exchange SoleTrade LLC, known as StockX.Chinese investors long have speculated in alternative assets, including cryptocurrencies, fiery liquor from Kweichow Moutai Co., and garlic.Now, sneakers have their attention. Unlike Chinese stocks, which only can move 10% in either direction, there’s no cap on shoe returns.“As with all frothy assets, there’s no telling where the peak is,” said Yu Yingbo, investment director at Shenzhen Qianhai United Fortune Fund Management Co. “As long as there are high returns, there is going to be money chasing them.”Sneaker collecting went mainstream in the U.S. after Nike launched Air Jordans in the 1980s, and the trade went digital with eBay Inc. about a decade later.Today’s technology makes the trade more sophisticated. Apps collect bid and ask prices, chart costs and volume in real time, and allow users to share investment advice. Some also let customers buy coupons that can be traded for shoes before coveted models arrive—in effect selling sneaker futures. Now more-established trading sites in the U.S. want a piece of the action in China.StockX plans to introduce local payment and language support this year, said Cutler, previously the head of global listings at the New York Stock Exchange. China already comprises about 10% of StockX’s transaction volume.Culver City, California-based 1661 Inc.’s GOAT launched a mini-app on WeChat in July after receiving $100 million in funding from Foot Locker Inc.“China will soon become the sneaker capital of the world,” said Henek Lo, general manager of GOAT China. The demand from Chinese millennials is “something we haven’t seen anywhere else.”Significant rewards typically are accompanied by significant risks, and sneaker trading is no different. Of more than 2,600 collectible models sold on Nice, 56% lost value, according to company data. Only 0.4% of footwear saw returns of more than 1,000% on the app.But Tian Hao, 27, is convinced he’s cracked the code. These days, his 90-square-meter (969-square-foot) Beijing apartment mostly serves as storage space for his inventory, which he estimates to be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. There’s hardly any space to walk around in his living room, where hundreds of shoeboxes are stacked up on the sofa, TV console and coffee table.As Tian runs low on space, he's stashing sneakers with a friend. In return, Tian helped him invest 260,000 yuan in sneakers. After splitting the profits, they each cleared 90,000 yuan in two months.“This is one of my luckiest investments this year,” Tian said. “My friend can’t stop admiring me.”Operating in a country known for its copycats, Poizon and Nice say they have strict processes to ensure they’re selling authentic products. Poizon hires “hardcore master-level sneakerheads” to inspect every shoe, including packaging, labels, stitching and glue, and it issues certificates to verified products.Nice’s inspectors smell shoes to check if the glue passes the sniff test.“There are so many details—the material, the label, the box, etc.—it’s extremely hard for knock-offs to get it exactly right,’’ Nice CEO Alex Zhou said.Both Poizon and Nice offer guarantees against fakes, promising to compensate buyers at triple the value of their fraudulent purchases. Lately, though, the Chinese apps are concerned about deflecting the government’s attention. It may be too late. An article published in June on state-run China Daily mentioned Poizon and StockX, calling out sneaker resellers for the “chaos” in surging prices.And this week, the Shanghai branch of the People’s Bank of China warned the city’s financial institutions about the risks associated with sneaker speculation, according to people familiar with the matter. It said the resale platforms are a “financial game of hot potato.”Adidas discourages the reselling of its sneakers, the company said. Nike did not respond to a request for comment.Poizon has since spoken out against flipping shoes and in August stopped offering storage space that enabled traders to avoid taking deliveries.“Shoes are for wearing, not for speculation,” said Charles Xing, the head of marketing.Poizon CEO Yang Bing declined an interview request.Nice also cautioned against the practice in a Sept. 27 WeChat post.“Don’t embark on the unreturnable path of speculation for the greed of short-term profit,” Zhou said. “It’s going to harm others as well as yourself.”The app suspended price charts, a leaderboard for price performance and discussions about investments.Still, that’s not deterring resellers like Tian, who said he expects to continue trading for the next three to five years.“The ‘chives’ who rush into this market may leave,” he said, using a nickname for bandwagon investors. “The sneaker lovers and collectors will be enough to nurture this resale industry.”  \--With assistance from Jinshan Hong, April Ma, Shelly Banjo and Kevin Dharmawan.To contact the editor responsible for this story: Alice Truong at atruong30@bloomberg.net, Michael TigheFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Tuesday: Darden Restaurants, Nike and Apple

    There's an interesting combination of fundamental and technical factors at play for U.S. stocks at the moment. An obviously important earnings season looms. Big banks JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) report third-quarter earnings Tuesday morning, leading a string of major companies on the earnings docket. Second-quarter earnings this year proved to be a negative catalyst for the broader market: the S&P 500 peaked on July 26 and promptly fell 6% over the next six trading sessions.Source: Shutterstock Investors obviously are worried about a repeat of that performance. Worse yet would be a repeat of last year's steep fourth quarter sell-off. And those worries seem to be keeping a technical lid on U.S. equity markets.The S&P 500 has made a few runs at 3,000 since the late July sell-off. All have failed. Whether it's the psychological effect of S&P 3,000 -- or the 27,000 level that has mostly proven resistance for the Dow Jones Industrial Average -- or simple profit-taking, all-time highs have remained elusive.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut a breakout early in earnings season could change that. On the other hand, early weakness could signal a potential earnings recession this quarter which might trigger a sell-off not dissimilar to that seen in 2018.In that context, after a moderately red Monday, there are three big stock charts to watch in the consumer sector. That sector is driving the economy -- and the market. Divergent responses to two recent earnings reports, and positioning ahead of a hugely important release due at the end of the month, highlight the mixed sentiment of the market right now. And so these three charts look important for their stocks, but maybe the rest of this uncertain market as well. Darden Restaurants (DRI)Darden Restaurants (NYSE:DRI) has been perhaps the best story in the restaurant sector in recent years. An activist-driven turnaround boosted performance at the company's Olive Garden business. DRI stock tripled in a little over five years and touched an all-time high last month.But a disappointing fiscal Q1 report last month sent DRI stock plunging, and the chart now shows an outright falling knife. That makes DRI one of our big stock charts for several reasons: * Click to EnlargeVolume in recent sessions has been high and DRI has kept declining. A 2%+ decline in a relatively flat market Monday suggests traders are still selling -- and/or a larger position is exiting. * Support for DRI stock isn't necessarily obvious. Resistance did hold briefly at current levels in February, but that hardly suggests $110 will provide support this time around. Value buyers may step in as DRI's FY20 P/E multiple compresses to a bit over 17x, but if growth expectations have changed, even that may not be cheap enough. * DRI's weakness has spread to shares of casual dining rivals like Brinker International (NYSE:EAT) and Dine Brands Global (NYSE:DIN). Ahead of earnings season, the obvious risk is that DRI stock is the canary in the coal mine for the broader restaurant industry -- or even the consumer sector that is carrying the U.S. economy at the moment. Nike (NKE)Of course, investors looking for optimism ahead of earnings season might well point to Nike (NYSE:NKE) instead. NKE stock sits an all-time high after a blowout fiscal Q1 report last month. And the strength in NKE stock of late has been notable for several reasons: * There has been some external noise. NKE stock sold off amid the dispute between China and the NBA (National Basketball Association). The company reportedly was aware of anti-doping efforts by a track coach, which led Nike to shut down a camp for endurance athletes. Yet investors have shrugged off the noise and bought NKE stock anyway. * The gains are particularly intriguing in the context of the U.S.-China battle. Little credible positive news has emerged, despite multiple rumors, yet NKE stock keeps rallying. 27% constant-currency growth in that market in Q1 is a good reason why. NKE's strength bodes well for stocks like Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) and Yum China Holdings (NYSE:YUMC), where investors have worried that the trade war might drive anti-American sentiment. * Technically, the breakout from a multi-month trading range looks like good news. In this bull market, breakouts tend to keep going. NKE stock isn't cheap, but it may well have a path to $100+ with even modest help from broader market sentiment. Apple (AAPL)Of course, NKE isn't the only -- or the largest -- China-exposed stock reaching an all-time high. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock closed modestly red on Monday, after setting a new all-time closing high of $236.21 on Friday.Obviously, AAPL stock matters to the market simply because of its size. The rally of late has led it to pass Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) as the world's most valuable company. (Presumably the race actually is too close to call at the moment.) Its size alone means it can move the S&P 500. And its $236 handle gives it outsized impact on the oddly price-weighted Dow Jones. Only Boeing (NYSE:BA) moves that index more.But that's not the only reason AAPL is one of the big stock charts at the moment: * Like NKE, AAPL stock reflects surprising confidence toward the Chinese economy at the moment. In the first three quarters of fiscal 2019, Apple generated roughly a quarter of its profit in Greater China. Given the trade war and Hong Kong protests, one might well think China posed a risk to AAPL stock. Investors, at least for now, seem to disagree. * Like NKE, AAPL has broken out. But unlike NKE, there isn't an obvious near-term catalyst for the move. As seen in the chart above, Apple shares actually sold off following fiscal Q3 results in July. AAPL has gained over 20% since then on very little news. * Those gains also create risk, however. For one, expectations clearly are rising ahead of the Q4 report on Oct. 30. And as far as the rest of the market goes, there's one obvious question: If broad market indices can't rise even with AAPL stock and MSFT stock at all-time highs, what happens to those indices if either tech giant stumbles?As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
