Innovation's Crouching Tiger shows us that the STAR Market can be used as a tool to see which industries are popular at any given moment. The STAR Market, a subsidiary of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, aims to become high-tech industries' first choice when applying to boards to be publicly traded.
Here, we show you which companies listed on the STAR board have been traded at the highest volume.
The STAR Market advertises that the industries they most highly support lie in high-tech and strategic emerging industries, which can be seen in the top five stocks with the greatest trading volume.
Currently the company on the STAR market with the highest trading volume is the Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation. This company only landed on the STAR market in the middle of 2020, on July 16th, yet has far surpassed other companies listed on the stock exchange.
SMIC can also be found on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the OCTQX. The company is based in Shanghai and today the starting price was listed at CNY62.5, or US$9.34.
Knowing the STAR Market can provide rich information for both ordinary observers and professional deal-makers alike. Innovation’s Crouching Tiger points out that observing and taking note of the STAR market can not only help people know where to invest but also what industries to monetize their IP in. As we can see from the current stats of the STAR Market, “New Generation IT” makes up the largest part of this stock exchange and seeing that this industry is also represented in the company with currently the highest trading volume, this looks like a trending industry to monetize one’s IP in.
