Internet - Chinese ADRs face tightening rules to limit foreign government control over US-listed foreign companies

The US Senate passed legislation on Wednesday that could disqualify companies from listing shares on the US stock exchanges without adhering to the security laws and auditing regulations. The legislation passed would require companies seeking access to US stock markets to establish that they are not owned or controlled by a foreign government. We believe such legislation brings uncertainty and de-valuation risks to Chinese ADRs under the US sanction against China. Maintain OVERWEIGHT.

Int'l Insights: EM Strategy

EM Outperforming; Favor EM over EAFE With many global markets crumbling last week, one might assume that EM would have underperformed -- but that is not what transpired. What we saw was a decline in the US dollar which, along with improving coronavirus metrics in China, led to EM outperformance. Reiterating our 12/20/19 EM Strategy, we continue to believe EM is a better place to be than EAFE, supported by new highs in the EM vs. EAFE ratio and our ongoing belief that the US dollar is likely not headed for meaningfully new highs in the near-term... see charts below. Below we highlight attrac...

Upgrading cap-weighted Communications to overweight; 10 to 2's Treasury spread breaking out We continue to move increasingly toward the bullish camp and we believe equities are poised for higher prices moving forward. Below we highlight several developments which help lead us to this conclusion. • 10 to 2's Treasury yield spread widening & breaking out. The 10 to 2's spread is quietly breaking out to YTD highs and breaking above a ~2.5-year downtrend. This steepening yield curve is good for Financials/banks and also the economy as recession concerns are subsiding... see chart below. • Comm...

Int'l Macro Vision: Global Ex-U.S. Equity Strategy

In our January 31 International Compass we presented a case for an incrementally improving overall global outlook, with the caveat that market bottoms tend to be a process that develops over many weeks. Since the end of January, not a lot has changed to alter our views. We remain constructive overall and continue to believe that global equities (MSCI ACWI) are going through a bottoming process. Opportunities exist but Sector leadership is mixed. In our February International Strategy, we explore various themes which lead to our overall constructive outlook, along with areas of the market wher...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Global indexes approaching major resistance Broad global indexes are bumping up against logical downtrend resistance. As a result, our outlook remains cautious and our baseline expectation for continued downward pressure on global equities remains intact. At the same time, we are seeing signs that the worst of the declines may be behind us as global cyclical Sectors show RS improvements while defensive Sectors display early signs of RS deterioration. • Regional/Country Overview. The U.S., Europe, and Japan all remain in downtrends from a price perspective, though major resistance levels are...

TAL: Combination Of Online And Offline Supporting Better Enrollments In FY4Q20 And FY1Q21; Maintain BUY

TAL will report FY4Q20 results on April 28th before the markets open with an 8am EST conference call. We are positive on TAL’s performance in FY4Q20. Based on our data and calculations, we believe that TAL’s revenue in FY4Q20E is likely to be higher than consensus at $860.8M (excluding Light Class). The revenue for Small Class/Peiyou is likely to grow 8.6% Y/Y, vs. 40.6% Y/Y in FY3Q20. The slower growth was because Peiyou offered a lot of lower price and promotional courses during the period of the COVID-19 outbreak.
