• Tencent shares have reached multi-month highs, thanks to regulatory easing from Chinese authorities.
• The company’s shares have increased by nearly double the price points since October 2022.
• Tencent is now one of the most valuable companies in the world, despite the market squeeze in the global financial industry.
Tencent Holdings Ltd (HKG: 0700), the Chinese multinational internet giant, has seen its shares reach multi-month highs due to regulatory easing from Beijing. In October 2022, the company’s share price had dropped to its lowest point since 2017, as the tech industry in China was suffering from the aftermath of the global financial industry squeeze. However, the shares have since then climbed by nearly double the price points.
The Chinese authorities had become concerned about the prolific growth of tech startups and the potential of them monopolizing the market. In order to ease the regulatory pressure, the government has implemented a range of measures, such as reducing the number of new stock market listings. This has had a positive effect on the share price of Tencent, allowing it to become one of the most valuable companies in the world.
The company’s shares are currently at HKD 370.20, despite the 0.32% drop seen in the past few days. Investors are optimistic that with the current easing of pressure from authorities, Tencent’s shares may see additional upswings in the near future.
Tencent has been a leader in the tech industry for many years, and its current success is a reflection of its resilience and strength. The company has been able to continue innovating and expanding its services, allowing it to remain at the forefront of the industry. With the market improving and the regulatory pressure reducing, the company is well-positioned to continue its success in the years to come.
