NYSE Start Delisting Chinese Companies
The New York Stock Exchange will start delisting Chinese corporations affiliated with their country’s military beginning today. This move follows a US executive order imposing restrictions on Chinese military-owned or controlled companies. Between January 7 to 11, companies China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp Ltd., and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. will cease trading on the New York Stock Exchange. These three companies generate revenue in China and deal with business in Hong Kong. As such, exposure in the NYSE is thin at best. This means the delisting is more of a symbolic action rather than an economic sanction.

Among the affected hedge US fund managers are Renaissance Technologies LLC, Dimensional Fund Advisors LP, and Two Sigma Investments LP. They comprise three of the largest holders of US listings of the above However, by September, they held only small stakes in the Chinese companies.
Trump’s Executive Order
Last November, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that disallowed US investments in Chinese firms with military connections. The order aims to pressure the Chinese government in reining in abusive business practices. Consequently, US investors cannot trade shares of companies listed and vetted by the Pentagon as having People’s Liberation Army connections.
China Mobile and the others were among the most prominent companies listed in American indexes. In response, Beijing accused the US of slandering their military-civilian integration efforts. China vowed to protect its companies. At the same time, they threatened to blacklist US companies.
In May, the US Federal Communications Commission forbade China Mobile from operating in the US. Then, the FCC instructed local telecom carriers to remove all equipment supplied by Huawei Technologies Co. Next, it started looking into China Telecom’s operations in the country and began mulling if they should revoke all of Huawei’s working permits. China Telecom’s US division responded by insisting it’s an independent business based in the States. Therefore, they are not subject to Chinese control.
Why the NYSE Lists Chinese Companies
NYSE began recruiting Chinese companies over the last decade to attract global investments. In return, these firms can benefit from an NYSE listing to attract more shareholders. In fact, there are more investors who are willing to invest in foreign companies than Chinese investors investing in local businesses. The delisting of Chinese companies signals a backtrack spurred by concerns outside of trading activities. Until China and the US resolve their differences, expect more repercussions.
Meanwhile, Hong Kong Exchanges changed their rules to take back former listings. HK indexes allow companies to sell shares with weighted voting rights. This strengthens the company founders’ powers while weakening protections for minority investors. Large Chinese companies such as Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and JD.Com Inc. created secondary listings in Hong Kong in the past two years apart from the NY listing. Doing so gives firms a way out as tensions between the US and China continue to simmer. Lately, the two countries trade accusations of trade violations, espionage, and coronavirus origin stories.
Watch the Bloomberg Markets and Finance news video reporting on the SEC as they push the delisting of Chinese companies connected to the Chinese Military:

Keep any Chinese company or products the hell out of the United States 🇺🇸 Period
The hole wold should not trade with them. Make them a pirier
Yes for the sake of national security all companies owned and controlled or partially controlled by the Chinese military must not be allowed in the USA.
Chinese companies should NOT be allowed to buy/own U.S. infrastructure, i.e. food, fuel, land, utilities, education. That’s a sure way for us to lose our identity & control of our own destiny.
As Americans we have f####d up by letting China and other countries purchase commercial real estate in the United States. So many of our hotel chains have been purchased by outsiders and the majority of them are operated ONLY by people from other countries with many not speaking fluent English. Their protocols and standards for repairs are pathetic to say the least but highway robbery to stay overnight at!! They usually don’t have to pay near the taxes because they are foreigners and get huge tax breaks!!
TIME TO TAKE BACK AMERICA
SEND THEM PACKING BEFORE THEY GET TO THE BORDERS!!!
NO MORE CHINESE OPERATED BUSINESSES!!!!
Very easy way to send them packing, don’t go to their business at all. Just let them sit, and go elsewhere. They don’t do any business they will sell and leave. And by the way, good riddance.
It should have never started with anyone…..these law makers that betray us should be sent to war
I agree with the comets above. It’s sad where our political class has taken us. China has one goal and one goal only . To dominate the world. Watch how they treat there citizens. Do you want this coming to a city near you. Most of our federal government on both sides are just looking to enrich themselves. Both sides. President Trump is not only a good president for our country he’s a good president for the world. He has slowed down China’s progression. Biden will wipe that all away. The left has taken use to far. Watch out something is about to happen.
Drain them like they drained us. Kick them out of the WTO. As a matter in fact, kick the UN out of the United States.
One of the best thing our president has done,China is an evil empire.
