The company’s strong global network provides the opportunity to work with the world's leading professionals on multiple issues. An excellent professional team has helped the company to maintain solid reputation for high-quality consulting services focused on economic, financial and management consulting areas. On the flip side, seasonality continues to weigh on Charles River Associates’ top line.

Top 5 China Stocks To Watch Right Now

What happened

Shares of Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAT) tumbled 10.7% last month,according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence, after reports surfaced that China may speed up its plans to increase local production of semiconductors.

China is worried about a possible trade war with the U.S. And Applied Materials investors were concerned that if China accelerates its own chip production, it could hurt the company’smanufacturing equipment, services, and software sales to semiconductor companies around the world.

So what

China has been planning to bring semiconductor manufacturing back home for years, but the country hasn’t yet been able to fully take the plunge. Chip production is part of its “Made in China 2025” initiative, which (among other things) aims to have 40% of China’s semiconductor needs produced locally by 2020.

Applied Materials is getting swept into all of this because in mid-April, news agencies reported that China might want to speed up its semiconductor plans in light of possible trade war between the U.S. and China.

    The founders of Floyd Mayweather-backed cryptocurrency firm Centra Tech have been indicted by a grand jury and accused of fraud, a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York announced this week. Raymond Trapani, Sohrab Sharma and Robert Farkas allegedly planned to defraud investors through a token sale labeled as a “scheme to induce victims to invest million of dollars’ worth of digital funds for the purpose of unregistered securities.” Authorities recovered more than $60 million in funds from the founders. Centra Tech’s token sale had been endorsed by heavyweight boxer Mayweather, and the company claimed to have relationships with Visa Inc. (V) and Mastercard Inc. (MA) , which authorities said never existed.
