It is hard to grasp how far China has come in just three decades. Although it is still a communist country in name, China has created more than three hundred thousand millionaires and one hundred and eight billionaires. The nation's once-stagnant economy may soon become the world's strongest, as it continues to enjoy one of the largest economic booms in history. The door is now open, says Jim Trippon, to the most significant financial opportunity since the emergence of the United States as an industrial giant during the twentieth century.
In Becoming Your Own China Stock Guru, Trippon, who runs the largest independent equity investment research firm in Mainland China, reveals how to profit from the investment opportunities available in the rise of the world's new economic superpower. Publisher of a highly successful China investment newsletter, Trippon has invested in the Chinese market for more than twenty years and made his clients millions of dollars in the process. In this book, he offers the definitive how-to guide for the average investor who wants to participate in the largest economic miracle of the twenty-first century.
Trippon explains the genesis of the Chinese investment revolution and introduces us to the new China, a dynamic and dramatically expanding economic superpower. Trippon also examines the Chinese economic landscape and identifies the sectors that offer the best investment opportunities: manufacturing, the auto industry, energy, banking and insurance, and communications. He takes us on a tour of Greater China's financial centersBeijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Taiwan, and Hong Kongoffering firsthand insights on the role each plays in the investment and decision-making processes. After providing a solid grounding in the fundamentals, the author details what every investor needs to know before venturing into the Chinese stock markets, explaining how to choose stocks, time purchases, diversify a portfolio, minimize risk, and much more.
While there is much money to be made participating in the development of the world's fastest-growing major economy, the rising economic tide in China will not lift all boats. Profits are not guaranteed. Investors need guidance to discern the difference between winners, risky bets, and outright losers. This book will show you the way.
It is a huge event...akin to the emergence of the U.S. industrial economy more than a century ago.
The book provides helpful advice to investors who want to profit from these investments and to do safely, and successfully.
Near the end of the book, Trippon does review some strategies for China which I found woefully inadequate.
