3. SPDR S&P China (GXC)
This particular basket of Chinese equities could qualify as a must-own from both a technical and fundamental basis. The Chinese economy grows at a clip that is the envy of the industrialized world and it does so without an unconventional quantitative easing (QE) package. Corporations in GXC are trading at a collective P/E below 10. In fact, the current price of GXC is below the highs reached in April of 2011, nearly three years ago. Have these companies grown their earnings since 4/2011? You bet! What’s more, GXC is above its long-term 200-day moving average. You may need to be patient with China, but its a country worthy of an allocation.
