Chinese Stocks

There are still many on Wall Street who frown on Chinese stocks and China. When word was spreading that the country’s real estate market was going to implode, China was a cesspool for capital. Well, I don’t belong in that group of investors. Many of my readers will…

If the trend is your friend on Wall Street, it’s also the case that there are opportunities and value among stocks that have been abandoned by investors. While the financial media tends to prefer doom and gloom, genuine opportunity in the stock market is rarely in the headlines.…

China is not dead for investments, folks! In my previous article, I talked about the travel sector and the staggering potential for growth in the emerging markets—but this isn’t the only investment opportunity that may be arising in the second-largest economic hub. Yes, many analysts and mainstream media…

The comparative advance in the Shanghai Composite Index may be subpar and well below the moves in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore Chinese stocks. Recall a few weeks back when I discussed the upward moves in Chinese stocks.…

I’m longer-term bullish on China, yet at the same time, when I analyze a Chinese company, especially small-cap stocks, I often find myself wondering if the numbers are valid. We all know what happened with Sino-Forest Corporation or Deer Consumer Products, Inc (OTC/DEER) and how these companies tricked…

We all know how Chinese stocks have underperformed this year and last, but that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to invest in them—just remember that careful and selective picking is the name of the game here. While I’m neutral in the near-term, my longer-term assessment continues to be…

I know many of you probably don’t even look at Chinese stocks anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised given the years of fraudulent reporting by numerous China-based companies that decided to come here and steal your money through deception. The reality is that the flow of new Chinese initial…

The Chinese are coming! Well, not really, but we did see the first Chinese initial public offering (IPO) of the year list on an U.S. exchange yesterday and only the third Chinese IPO since 2011. The pipeline has dried up from the 60 or so Chinese IPOs listing…

Chinese stocks continue to be major underperformers this year—they have been for the past three years from 2010 to 2012. I must admit that having been a bullish supporter of Chinese stocks, it has been a major disappointment; but like everything in life, things will surely get better.…

Chinese stocks are a disappointment in 2013 and, at this point, are looking to underperform the U.S. stock market for the fourth consecutive year. But while China sorts out its growth issues, across the East China Sea, Japan has been on a tear. The massive infusion of liquidity…

It has been quite some time since I looked at Chinese stocks. The reality is that since the meltdown in Chinese reverse-merger stocks in 2011 and 2012, there has been an apprehension to buying Chinese stocks as reflected by the comparative performances. In 2013 so far, the key…

When the U.S. equities market crashes, most foreign stocks do as well. But when it comes to capital appreciation, the correlation ends. Domestic Chinese stocks experienced a small resurgence lately, but they are still well down from their peak in 2007. China is still very much an emerging…

Some of the most attractive opportunities right now in this stock market are in U.S.-listed Chinese stocks. If you like the buy low/sell high strategy, you have lots of choice among Chinese stocks—many of these companies are bouncing off their 52-week and all-time lows. Of course, there’s a…

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of wacky things in the stock market, from spectacular capital gains to equally spectacular wealth destruction (often from the same companies). Even the best companies on the stock market that offer rising dividends can crash. Remember the dot-coms? Those stocks shot…

There are still numerous pundits calling for China to collapse. I’m not sure where this reasoning comes from. It’s true the country has stalled, and there are more issues associated with an economy that has been expanding over the past decade. Yes, there’s a move by some manufacturers…

Many pundits continue to criticize Chinese stocks, saying China will collapse and face a hard landing—but I’m not one of them. In fact, I’m more optimistic for 2013. The country will be under new leadership with the goal to accelerate the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth over…

I still think that the best investment strategy for a stock market investor is to keep their assets at home. The eurozone is in recession, and emerging markets are just that—emerging. Now, I’m not referring to trading where there are lots of opportunities in small-cap technology companies and…

Happy New Year to our Profit Confidential readers! In 2012, small-cap stocks were the second-best performing group, following the technology sector. The Russell 2000 was the top performer in December and has been since the end of the first quarter. How the small-caps fare this year will, again,…
