China stocks have been one of the best places to profit for traders and longer term investors alike over the past several years and that continues today. Granted, the risk increases with each passing day as the market continues to push higher off the March lows, but the longer term opportunities are here to stay. The longer term investor may just want to practice a little patience before diving in after such a torrid run
I like to focus on niches of the China market and certainly my focus in the coming years will be on companies in the green energy space, which would include everything from solar, to wind, to electric cars to water conservation and treatment. China is leading the way in alternative energy technology and will continue to pour billions into it to ensure they remain on top. Back in June, I focused on the China water industry with a look at Duoyuan Global Water (DGW) ahead of its IPO. It’s just one of a few China water plays that have been on fire in recent months, with gains of 100 – 300%.

Sina.com (SINA) is China’s largest internet portal with over 200 million registered users across not only China but Taiwan, Hong Kong, North America. The company continues to post outstanding growth each quarter despite a slumping global economy and beginning to tap into the trend of user generated content with the launch of SINA Blog and SINA Podcasting. Considering that collectively, Chinese internet users spend more than 10x the amount of time online as US users do, that’s a whole lot of user generated content and potential ad revenue.

Quarter over quarter earnings growth is equally as impressive over the past 8 quarters with growth of 19%, 29%, 28%, 31%, 74%, 59%, 38% and 44%. The company will report its 1Q 2009 results within the next couple weeks.
