Tencent’s market capitalization has surpassed Facebook’s following a huge rally in the Chinese firm’s shares this year.
The total value of publicly traded shares of the Chinese gaming and social media giant stood at 5.15 trillion Hong Kong dollars ($664.50 billion) at around 3:07 p.m. Singapore time. Meanwhile, Facebook’s market cap totaled $656.15 billion as of Tuesday’s close.
Tencent is known for its popular mobile games but also for running WeChat — China’s most popular messaging app with over a billion users. WeChat has a social media feature called Moments where users can post pictures, videos and links. And Tencent makes money from advertising through Moments.
The company also runs an instant messaging service called QQ. Revenue from social networks account for about 23% of Tencent’s overall sales.
Tencent shares have rallied around 43% year-to-date, compared to just over 12% for Facebook. That rally has added around 1.56 trillion Hong Kong dollars ($201.44 billion) to Tencent’s value.
The Chinese giant has benefited from users staying at home during the worst of the coronavirus pandemic in China earlier this year as many of those stuck at home spent time on its games and apps.
This is not the first time that Tencent’s market cap has surpassed Facebook’s. It happened in late 2017 and a number of times briefly in 2018. But in 2019, Facebook stayed ahead of Tencent for the whole year, according to data from S&P Global Market Intelligence.

A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body).

During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 68.8000. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 7 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 57.39. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 61. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 6 period(s) ago.
