The second half of 2022 has gradually kicked off. Will the Hong Kong stock market stand firm next? Where will the Hong Kong stock market go? Below are some of the institutions’ views.

  • SPDB International: For the Chinese stock market, Hong Kong stocks are more cost-effective than A-shares

SPDB International said that as far as China and overseas markets are concerned, both from an absolute and relative perspective, it is worthwhile to overweight Chinese stocks. For the Chinese stock market, Hong Kong stocks are more cost-effective than A-shares.

  • CITIC Construction Investment: China’s Hong Kong stock market has experienced heavy and heavy waters in the Internet

CITIC Construction Investment said that in the first half of 2022, the Internet of China’s Hong Kong stocks will usher in a dark moment. At the current point in time, many factors that suppress the Internet are improving marginally. Overseas, the delisting risk of Chinese concept stocks has eased, and the return is still the general trend. The pace of the Fed’s interest rate hike is expected to slow down significantly in the fourth quarter. Domestically, the bottom of the policy has been clear, and the bottom of the second quarter results is imminent. In the future, domestic policy supervision will become normalized, and new model breakthroughs and technological breakthroughs will lead the new growth of the Internet industry in the next stage.

  • CICC: The downside of the Hong Kong stock market may be relatively limited, and certainty should be sought from stable cash flow

CICC published a research report saying that the overseas Chinese stock market continued to show relative resilience. Considering the already low valuation level, the continued inflow of southbound funds and the continued force of domestic policy support measures, the downside of the Hong Kong stock market may be relatively limited.

In terms of allocation recommendations, look for certainty from cash flow: focus on high dividends, high-quality growth and stable growth . CICC believes that finding certainty from stable cash flow is a better allocation idea. Specifically, on the one hand, high dividend yields (banks, energy, and utilities) provide stable dividend returns and defensiveness in an environment where risk-free rates in China may still be downside and liquidity remains loose; on the other hand, in China In the context of the improvement of domestic economic regulation on Internet platforms and the continuous efforts of policies to promote stable growth of consumption, high-quality growth stocks with sufficient valuation correction and still good growth prospects (valuation matching with growth prospects, such as automobiles, medical services, some Consumer goods services and the Internet) may provide better operating cash flow certainty.

  • CCB International: The overall trend of Hong Kong stocks is expected to be bright and bright, and August-September will be an important observation window

CCB International believes that in the first half of the year, Hong Kong stocks have confirmed the bottom of the valuation (3.15), the bottom of the policy (the 3.16 Gold Stability Meeting and the subsequent series of meetings to stabilize growth and stable expectations) and the bottom of the economy (the end of April and the beginning of May), and the second half of the year may welcome. Come to the bottom of the profit (before and after the interim report). Hong Kong stocks are expected to be bright in the second half of the year, and the volatility center will gradually rise. August-September will be an important observation window, US monetary policy will reach an important crossroads, and the market will also test and confirm the bottom of Hong Kong stocks during the July-August mid-term report season.

The bank expects that Hong Kong stocks will fluctuate in the second half of 2022. Considering the possibility of another change in style in the second half of the year, it is recommended to shift from overweight value to a balanced allocation between value stocks and growth stocks.

  • Kaiyuan Securities: Hong Kong stocks bottomed in the second quarter, and the second half of the year will be sunny

The overseas market team of Kaiyuan Securities believes that the bottom will be reached in the second quarter, and the layout will rebound in the second half of the year. Compared with the global mainstream stock market and the historical performance of Hong Kong stocks themselves, the current valuation level of Hong Kong stocks is relatively low, and they already have medium and long-term allocation value, but the cheap valuation is not enough to constitute a reason for reversal.

The overseas market team of Kaiyuan Securities believes that profit growth is the core driving force for the long-term rise of Hong Kong stocks, but there are also unfavorable factors such as the devaluation of the RMB. More intricate factors will affect the stage performance of Hong Kong stocks, such as risk-free interest rate factors : the expected rate hike basically responds, and the shrinking balance sheet pushes the real interest rate upward; liquidity risk premium factors: Hong Kong stocks are still net inflows, and foreign capital has not yet become apparent For the return of foreign capital, it is necessary to see that the fundamental trend of Hong Kong stocks is better than that of the European and American economies; the impact of the tightening of overseas liquidity brought about by the Fed’s shrinking balance sheet; the potential impact of the delisting of Chinese concept stocks on the liquidity of Hong Kong stocks still needs continuous attention.
