    Chinese Tech Stocks Surge on Renewed US-China Trade Optimism

    Chinese Tech Stocks Surge on Renewed US-China Trade Optimism ## US-China trade optimism Markets cautiously gave a thumbs up yesterday to the renewed optimism that the US and China seem to be engaging in more meaningful talks towards sealing a trade deal. US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross stated that both the economic powerhouses could reach a settlement “they can live with, and that addresses all the key issues.” The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) was up 0.47% on January 9, whereas the iShares Dow Jones US Technology (IYW) jumped 1%. American technology giants Apple (AAPL) and Amazon (AMZN) were up 1.7% and ~0.2%, respectively. American depository receipts of Chinese technology companies NetEase (NTES), Baozun (BZUN), and IQIYI (IQ) were up 6.6%, 3%, and 1.8%, respectively, yesterday. Among the Chinese technology companies, notable gainers were HUYA and Bilibili. Let’s take a look. ## Chinese tech stock rally On January 9, HUYA (HUYA), a leading live game streaming platform in China, witnessed a sharp 6.8% rise in its ADRs (American depository receipts). The company’s ADRs opened at $18.32 and rose to touch an intraday high of $20.20 in afternoon trading. Later on, HUYA ADRs declined marginally to close on $19.45, up ~6.8% from the previous close of $18.22. HUYA ADRs were listed at $16.06 on the NYSE after its IPO in May last year. After soaring to highs of $46.20 after its IPO, the company’s ADRs have significantly declined since then. Much of the decline was related to trade war fears and Chinese authorities’ decision not to approve new games since March 2018, which negatively impacted the game industry in the country. However, 2019 appears to be a different case. The company’s ADRs have soared 23% on a YTD basis as of January 9. Bilibili (BILI), another Chinese technology major, is a video sharing website involving a game, comics, and animation. BILI ADRs surged ~6.6% yesterday. The ADRs reached an intraday high of $16.37 on January 9 before closing on $15.75, up 6.6% from the previous day’s closing price of $14.78. Noted equity research company Morgan Stanley has expressed bullishness towards Chinese technology companies in 2019. Morgan Stanley revised its price target on BILI to $17.0. This price target revision implies an 8% premium on BILI ADRs closing price on January 9.

    Microsoft to Help Kroger Set Up a Connected Grocery Store

    Microsoft to Help Kroger Set Up a Connected Grocery Store ## Microsoft partners with Kroger On January 7, Microsoft (MSFT) and American retailing major Kroger (KR) announced a partnership for a futuristic retail store pilot project. Kroger is the largest supermarket chain by revenue and the second-largest general retailer in the United States. The companies have joined hands to offer customers a unique shopping experience via the testing of two connected grocery stores. Microsoft and Kroger will be testing the experience at two Kroger stores located in Monroe, Ohio, and Redmond, Washington. This partnership is considered to be the next step for their EDGE (Enhanced Display for Grocery Environment) shelving system, which they announced in 2018. The system includes digital shelving displays that can exhibit pricing, promotions, and nutritional information. With this pilot, Microsoft aims to make further inroads into customers’ shopping experiences through EDGE. ## About the new pilot system With the help of this new system, customers will be able to formulate shopping lists in an app, which will help them to navigate through the store upon their arrival. EDGE displays can also show an image earlier opted for by the customer to locate the merchandise they need. With the help of these visual cues, employees can, in turn, fulfill pickup orders, making the process quicker and relatively easy to execute. Customers can also be notified by the system if the items they need are out of stock and inform the store staff if the quantity goes down. ## Kroger’s move Analysts and investors see this step by Kroger as an attempt to stay relevant in an industry (IYW) in which its rivals, such as Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT), have made sizable investments in AI technology. Both Amazon and Walmart have been heavily investing in cashierless technologies to curtail long customer lines, which take up a lot of customers’ time. Kroger’s plan is seen as a response to Amazon’s entry into the grocery store space with its 2017 acquisition of Whole Foods.
