Guo Shuqing’s “bubble theory” affects market expectations

Guizhou Maotai’s market capitalization has evaporated by about $113 billion after the Yellow New Year holiday, along with concerns of policy tightening and the disintegration of “holdout stocks”.

Bloomberg reports that the plunge of Guizhou Maotai, China’s No. 1 stock, has rattled some of the top managers in the country’s $3 trillion fund industry.

Until three weeks ago, Guizhou Maotai was the most sought-after stock in China’s stock market. The liquor maker’s stock rose nearly 70 percent for all of 2020, soared a further 30 percent so far this year to a record high on Feb. 10, and has doubled in 2019. Chinese funds with record-sized cash have been adding to their holdings, fearing they will lose customers by falling behind their peers.

However, a comment by Guo Shuqing, chairman of the Communist Party’s Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, on March 2 sent shockwaves through the market. Guo issued a warning about the need to reduce leverage in China’s financial markets amid the growing risk of a global and Chinese real estate market bubble. This hit Maotai, which is highly liquid and widely held, the hardest.

Outsiders believe that Guo Shuqing’s speech released signals of monetary policy tightening.

Zhou Hao, a senior economist at Commerzbank Asia, wrote in the Financial Times on March 3 that Guo Shuqing’s speech had sent shockwaves through the financial markets ahead of the Communist Party’s two sessions, and that his “bubble theory” had shaken the market and begun to influence market expectations for monetary policy in the coming year. The “bubble theory” has shaken the market, but also began to influence the market expectations for the monetary policy in the coming year. To a large extent, it seems that the market has not yet reached a consensus on the policy direction, and only Time can give an answer to whether the round of asset mania will come to an abrupt end.

Zhou Hao writes that if one combs through Guo Shuqing’s speeches over the past few years, one will find that he prefers a prudent policy orientation, which may be exactly what has many market participants worried.

China’s leading financial commentator Shui Pi analysis on March 4, because the market is in the process of style change, the current investor mentality is generally fragile, from the past fear of missing the market has evolved into a fear of doing the wrong market mentality, like a bird of prey, the slightest movement of wind, the index will be a substantial shock.
