The latest data suggests an upbeat Chinese economy. But, the uncertainty over the sustenance of the performance puts certain China ETFs in focus.
Shares of Baidu Inc. took a 2.7% hit in morning trade Wednesday, after Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein downgraded the China-based internet search company, citing concerns that a higher level of spending through the rest of the year will keep the stock range bound. Helfstein cut his rating to perform, after being at outperform for at least the past three years, and removed his $205 stock price target. "We now expect [Baidu] to invest even more in key strategic areas (content, feeds, short video and cloud), which will not benefit revenue until late 2019 or early 2020," Helfstein wrote in a note to clients. "We think investments are necessary as China's search market growth is slowing to about 10% [year-over-year], and [Baidu] needs to invest in new growth drivers." The stock has gained 11% year to date, while the Invesco Golden Dragon China ETF has rallied 33% and the S&P 500 has climbed 15%.
