Demon Stocks Back in the News

Demon stocks (妖股) are back. Shares that move wildly out of sync with the broader market for no apparent reason. Speculators often trade these shares because the runs can be spectacular, but there's always the risk they will blow up.

It's no surprise they're back considering two factors. One, animal spirits are back. Two, the Chinese government all but welcomed manipulative speculators back to the market in November.

On the mainland exchanges, "hot money" is returning to the market because Chinese regulators said they would intervene less in the markets. The dearth of trading has caused the shift in focus. According to one report, traders suspected of manipulation are no longer receiving warnings for their suspicious trading activity.

The hot money has always been adhering to the short and fast style. When the news was first seen, Mr. W entered the trading. In fact, Mr. W has been away for more than two years. In mid-October this year, he was told by the broker that his account had been removed from the blacklist.

“There were three transactions this week. I still received the supervision letter for the first time, but I did not receive window guidance or supervision letter the next two times. The trading environment is indeed picking up.” Mr. W’s feelings also led to other active funds around him.

A number of active investors focused on short-term trading said that through a week of operations, they found that the verbal instructions and warning letters received were indeed decreasing.
The stock widely discussed yesterday, Eastern Communications, is now more than 20 percent off its intraday high.
