Asia is the fastest-growing economy in the world, with China’s and India’s economies likely to become the largest worldwide within the next three decades if growth continues at the current rate. Many Asian countries depend on manufacturing and oil reserves, but geopolitical tension and growing socioeconomic disparities threaten Asia stocks.

Even though Asian stocks have always trailed behind Europe and the U.S., Asia has faster GDP growth, which could ultimately mean out-performing U.S. and European equities with high earnings growth. Therefore, the long-term investor would be smart to buy into some Asian stocks, sit back and watch the gradual rise.

Jardine Matheson Holdings (JMHLY) is a notable stock to buy thanks to its growing dividends and expanding subsidiaries. Generally, Asian stock earnings are continuing to rise, and the growing economies there are reason enough to expect good things.
