Chinese stock markets have experienced a remarkable rebound over the past two months, with Goldman Sachs analysts forecasting continued growth, contingent upon several key factors.

Key Points:

  1. Market Rebound:

    • The blue-chip Shanghai Shenzhen CSI 300 index and the broader Shanghai Composite index have risen between 16% to 18% from multi-year lows reached in late January.
    • This rebound has been driven by bargain hunting, optimism surrounding additional stimulus measures from Beijing, and signs of improvement in China's economy.
  2. Goldman Sachs Outlook:

    • Goldman Sachs analysts have maintained an Overweight rating on China's A shares index (CSI 300).
    • They have raised their 12-month target for the CSI 300 to 4,100 points from the previous 3,900 points, implying an approximate 11% upside from current levels.
  3. Potential for Further Gains:

    • Historical evidence suggests a greater likelihood of continued gains in the event of a bull market, defined as a 20% increase from recent lows.
    • However, the realization of these gains depends on Chinese companies delivering strong earnings results.
  4. Conditions for Market Rally:

    • Further market gains will hinge on the effectiveness and implementation of Beijing's newly announced stimulus measures.
    • The persistence and impact of U.S.-China trade tensions will also play a critical role.
  5. Sectoral Outlook:

    • Goldman Sachs analysts are overweight on technology, media, and telecommunications sectors.
    • They are marketweight on developers and banks.
    • The outlook for automobiles and capital goods has been downgraded.


Goldman Sachs analysts remain optimistic about the potential for further gains in Chinese stock markets, provided that key conditions, such as corporate earnings performance and the successful implementation of stimulus measures by Beijing, are met. The sectoral focus remains positive for technology, media, and telecommunications, while the outlook for automobiles and capital goods has been tempered.
