Score Amazing Riches From the Far East
Dear Wealth Watch Reader,
Last Friday I examined the awesome money making opportunities now coming out of Asia.
Today I offer two of my favorite Chinese plays you could buy to start banking serious cash right now.
But first, an urgent message…
I’ve recently uncovered a groundbreaking way to add significant income to your bottom line.
New “Trump Bonus Checks” could instantly put $4,280 or $6,344 in extra monthly cash straight into your pocket.
March 29 — just 10 days from now — is the all important date for this “Trump Bonus Check” opportunity.
Now on to your daily Wealth Watch…
Here’s Where to Consider Placing Your Bets on China!
In my last article I explained why I firmly believe the best investment opportunities this century will be found in fast-growing Asian markets, chief among them, China.
The proof is in the statistics. China’s economy is on track to eclipse the entire 19-nation eurozone economy in size by the end of 2018. And it won’t be long before China overtakes the U.S. as well.
According to the latest global economic growth stats from the World Bank, China’s economy has expanded at an average rate of 7.3% over the past five years.
That compares to GDP growth of only 2.2% for the U.S. on average, according to Bloomberg.
At that rate, China will overtake the U.S. as the world’s single-largest economy within 10 years, as you can see below.
If you make allowances for changes in growth rates, China still has an huge advantage any way you slice it. It’s inevitable that China will eclipse us, and it’s now just a matter of when.
For example, let’s say China only manages to grow by 6% per year, while U.S. GDP growth accelerates back up to 3%. Then China will still overtake the U.S. economy in size by 2034.
As I said, it’s inevitable!
China is in the midst of an epic economic transition today. It’s economy is changing from an export-led “production” model to a domestic-driven “consumption” model.
And this transition is well supported by China’s rapidly expanding middle-class of upwardly mobile consumers.
The story of China’s economic transformation is a tale of urbanization, just as it was in the U.S. in the late 19th and early 20th century. Over the past 50 years, hundreds of millions of Chinese have migrated from the countryside to the cities, and from the interior to the coast.
As a result, China’s urbanization rate soared from less than 20% in 1980 to more than 60% today. But still, about 40% of Chinese citizens live in rural areas, compared to just 18% in the U.S.
This means there’s still a lot more urban migration to come, powering China’s economy in the process.
Look at it this way, China’s upwardly-mobile middle class stands at about 430 million today, and is expected to explode to 780 million by the middle of the next decade. That means an exponential increase in consumer spending power in China for many years to come.
That’s why the smart-money is investing in China today. It has a tremendous growth advantage over the rest of the world.
And that’s exactly why some of the very best investment opportunities in the years ahead will be found in Asia, especially in China.
Here are two worth considering.
Tap into China’s Growing Legions of Consumers
The Global X China Consumer ETF (CHIQ) is perfectly positioned to cash in on the rapid expansion of China’s upwardly-mobile middle class and the trillions of dollars in consumer spending they’ll add to the economy in the years ahead.
CHIQ holds a diversified mix of 40 Chinese stocks focused in the consumer sectors; everything from autos and airlines to alcohol, tobacco and travel!
It’s a great way to tap into China’s transition toward a consumption-driven economy in a single trade.
Investing in Chinese stocks is a tale of two markets. For years, the only way outside investors could buy stocks in China was through Hong Kong. The domestic “A-share” stock markets in Shanghai and Shenzhen were reserved for locals only.
Some quotas were also granted to large institutional investors to buy A-shares, but most of the action and liquidity was in Hong Kong.
Now, all of this is changing fast.
China’s stock and bond markets are opening up to the outside world in search of new investors. Last year global stock index giant MSCI decided to add China’s A-share stocks to its widely followed indexes for the first time.
This will bring a tidal wave of global capital flowing into China A-shares in the years ahead.
You Can Buy One of China’s Best Stock at a Discount
Meanwhile, longtime Wealth Watch readers will tell you that I can’t resist a bargain. I just love to find investments selling at a discount of 10% or 20% off full price. And right now, there’s a way to invest in China at a nice discount.
The Morgan Stanley China A Share Fund (CAF) is a closed-end fund targeting Chinese A-share stocks, were all that global investment cash will soon start flowing.
And best of all, CAF is now trading at a 15% discount to the net asset value of the stocks it owns. It’s like buying the best of China’s A-share stocks at 85-cents on the dollar!
Bottom line: China enjoys a huge growth advantage over the U.S. and most other global economies and that will translate into fantastic investment opportunities in the years ahead.
And CHIQ and CAF are two options that you should highly consider putting at the top of your wealth watch list.
