New Way to Play Chinese Real Estate Market?


China's number one real estate Internet portal, Soufun Holdings , went public Friday and surged 73 percent.

It has gone through a number of accounting firms, said John Carney, senior editor of CNBC's NetNet. The first firm quit and withdrew its audit opinions. Soufun fired the second and the third firm, Ernst & Young, said there's not enough people internally to keep up with the gap.

So why are investors overlooking this?

Carney said people want to play the Chinese real estate market, where the prices of homes have climbed by 12 percent. He said there aren't many ways to play that market, so this gives investors an option.

Both Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com and Brian Kelly of Kanundrum Capital, however, wouldn't go with SFUN.
