6 Major Trends Will Propel China Stocks Forward in 2010
I recently read an article in Time magazine that called the first 10 years of the 21st century, “The Decade from Hell.” For
investors who kept their money on U.S. soil, this moniker actually fits quite well. If you bought and held an S&P 500 Index fund from 2000 to
present, you lost approximately 20% of your principal.
But what if you would have put your money to work in China stocks?
Your results would likely vary depending on the fund you chose, but it’s safe to say that if you would have bought a basic China index fund
at the beginning of the century and held it through today, you would likely have a gain somewhere north of 100%! This kind of real portfolio growth
can only be garnered by investing where the real growth is taking place — and the real growth is taking place in China.
In 2010, I see six major trends propelling China stocks forward. Let’s take a look at each one, as well as the stocks best positioned to take
advantage of these trends.
