UPDATE: China-sensitive stocks slide sharply as yuan move adds to trade-war fears

Consumer-goods companies join chip makers and others in reacting to threat of new 10% tariff on $300 billion of China imports

A range of stocks of companies with heavy exposure to China fell sharply Monday, after China allowed the yuan to fall to a fresh low against the dollar, exacerbating concerns about the current trade conflict with the U.S.

"Trade continues to trend in the wrong direction, as in retaliation for new tariffs, China let the yuan move to a 10-year low versus the U.S. dollar," Ryan Detrick, senior market strategist at LPL Financial, said in emailed comments. "Any hopes of a quick resolution with China are fading quickly."

China allowed the yuan to fall below the key 7-to-the-dollar level, after President Donald Trump's threat last week to impose further tariffs of 10% on $300 billion of imports from China. The move has sparked a sharp selloff in global stock markets, with the Dow Jones Industrial Averagedown more than 500 points in early trade (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/dow-futures-down-more-than-300-points-as-us-china-trade-fight-deepens-2019-08-05).

Tom Elliott, international investment strategist at Devere Group, a financial advisory organization, said the weaker yuan will export deflationary pressure around the world's manufacturing industries.

"Chinese goods, always competitive on price, will be even more competitive," said Elliott. "This is therefore bad news for manufacturers outside of China, at a time when global manufacturing is struggling with weakening demand growth and the negative impact of the U.S.-China trade dispute on their supply lines and profits."

This time, the tariffs will apply to consumer goods, sweeping up a broader range of companies than earlier tariffs, including apparel and footwear companies. Those companies were mostly excluded from the 25% tariffs already imposed on $250 billion of goods from China, apart from accessories such as handbags, textiles, leather and cotton.
