China news dominated the markets this week and earnings season is about heat up.

A tweet from Houston Rockets General Manager, Daryl Morey, in support of Hong Kong protestors caused major backlash from China, The story quickly spiraled out of control and companies such as Apple (AAPL - Get Report) and Activision (ATVI - Get Report) got caught in the debate between American values and the economic opportunities in China.
