Alibaba, Tencent still ‘benchmark’ in China techs, investor says

by Sakuragun Chan

Alibaba and Tencent remain China’s top technology stocks — even as Beijing continues to ramp up regulatory pressure on its big internet firms, says Jackson Wong of Amber Hill Capital.

“At this point, I can’t see any other stocks that can challenge their positions in China,” Wong, director of asset management at Amber Hill, told CNBC’s “Street Signs Asia” on Thursday.

Alibaba and Tencent “are still the benchmark” among China’s tech stocks, he said. Wong’s family and Amber Hill both own shares in the two companies.

His comments come as Chinese tech stocks in Hong Kong lagged the other sectors so far this year.

The top 10 constituents of the Hang Seng index did not include a single tech stock at the end of the first quarter, according to a CNBC analysis using data from Refinitiv Eikon.
