Chinese stocks, the relevant U.S.-listed exchange traded funds and the yuan currency for that matter have been primary catalysts in roiling global financial markets over the past several months, but some market observers see opportunity in the world’s second-largest economy.

“Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is sticking with its bullish view on Chinese stocks in Hong Kong, saying valuations are inexpensive and improving economic data will spur a rebound,” reports Kana Nishizawa for Bloomberg.
“The snapback in China could be fairly meaningful,” Timothy Moe, chief Asia Pacific equity strategist at Goldman, said in an interview Wednesday. “The risk versus reward in terms of what’s priced in the market gives us a sense that if we see a stabilization in macro data, say from here to the end of the year for example, then we could see a decent recovery.”
