Playing the ‘Big Mo’ in China

Nicholas Vardy

Nicholas Vardy has a unique background that has proven his knack for making money in different markets around the world.

With most U.S. investors focused on the Trump rally, almost all of them have missed out on a strong stock market rally in China. With domestic Chinese A-shares up 8.32% this year, the Chinese stock market has returned about twice the gains of the S&P 500.

This week’s Momentum Trader Alert recommendation shifts our attention to a Chinese Internet play that popped up on our momentum screens as a top performer.

Headquartered in Beijing, China, Momo Inc. (MOMO) provides a mobile-based social networking platform in the Peoples Republic of China. Momo’s platform includes mobile applications and related features, functionalities, tools and services.

Momo also provides membership subscription and other services, which include paid emoticons and mobile marketing services. With the company closing in on 100 million users, Momo’s management expects earnings to grow as much as 377% year over year in 2017.

I am holding off on recommending options on this position for now.

Portfolio Update

With the S&P 500 closing at the same level it was on Feb. 14, momentum in the overall U.S. stock market has faded in the past two months.

Still, stock-specific news can overcome the overall state of lethargy, as you saw with the 8.38% jump in Healthcare Services Group (HCSG) this past week. The Bensalem, Pennsylvania-based company announced profits of 30 cents per share, beating consensus estimates by a penny.
