Shanghai's lockdown, Genting Singapore, Overseas Education, Nintendo, Zigen, the Manual of Ideas Asian Investing Summit 2022
Shanghai’s lockdown is now more severe than in early 2020, with subway traffic dropping to almost zero. Shanghai’s roads are empty. But COVID is spreading across the rest of the country as well, with aggregate lockdowns causing the Caixin China Services PMI to tumble to 42 in March.
I wrote a report on casino operator Genting Singapore. It’s worth contrasting the stock with its Philippine peer Bloomberry Resorts, which I have written about before.
