Review

"…any reader unwilling to at least hear Trippon make his case will be denying themselves the view of a veteran, outspoken China-watcher willing to take an aggressive stance on the future of China and of his wealthy clients." (SFO Magazine, October 2008)

From the Inside Flap

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 centers—Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Taiwan, and Hong Kong—offering 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.

I do not recomment this book. I am coming from a biased view as I have a degree in East Asian Studies and have lived and traveled extensively throughout the region.

I was anticipating some juicy inside info on China, but instead got a pretty standard view that I could find pretty much anywhere. The author actually lists his favourite places to go in Beijing?!?! Is this a book on travel or investment? If it is the latter, it fails miserably.

Near the end of the book, Trippon does review some strategies for China which I found woefully inadequate. I am sure he does more in depth research, but he mentions that he only looks at 3 ratios for initial evaluation. What?!?!?

If you are serious about investing in China, read Robert Hsu's "China Fireworks". Also, dig deeper and find your info. If you would like a very general overview, then perhaps this book may be OK. Otherwise, save your money.

I bought this book as soon as possible because I know Trippon's newsletter (The China Stock Digest) was the top Chinese stock newsletter in the country last year with a 58% gain. (He did 38% the year before and was the #2 among all stock newsletters in the U.S.)
Before "China Stock Guru" I had read every book on the Amazon bookshelf about the Chinese economy and investing in China without feeling I got the whole picture. But this is the only one that has it all. There's no bigger money-making story in the world than the sudden emergence of the world's second biggest economy but no book before this one has brought the whole picture together. It is a huge event...akin to the emergence of the U.S. industrial economy more than a century ago. Who wouldn't have wanted to invest on the ground floor of that?
Of course China is so much different from America and investment there requires special knowledge and background...the kind of understanding that Trippon seems to have in spades. Trippon has done a good job of taking a picture of this huge economic/social development and boiling it down into clear, understandable size, providing a practical and usable perspective for dedicated investors who have an appetite to seek new opportunities while the U.S. is having a tough time economically.

I wanted specifics of how to buy China stocks; I didn't want a history lesson. I could, and have, learned more just searching online than I did with this book. For me, it was a waste of money.
