New Trade for December 6th, 2022

Stocks were flat to start the day after concerns over higher interest rates dragged stocks lower in the previous session. Tech stocks led Monday’s rout, with the Nasdaq sliding 1.93% for its biggest one-day loss since November 9th. The S&P 500 and the Dow shed 1.79% and 1.4%, respectively.    

Some Chinese stocks got a boost after Beijing announced it would ease its health restrictions and that negative tests would no longer be required to enter public areas, malls, or residential areas. With the worst of China’s restrictions seemingly in the rearview, it may be time to start looking at stocks from the group to add. Our recommendation for today is one of the top choices among Chinese stocks, with an over 90% buy rating on Wall Street.
