Renewed Interest In China


Investors are taking a new look at China after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received a glowing review following her weekend visit.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said that the visit produced "positive results," and that the two countries are "sincerely willing to promote their relations."

"Through the visit, the two countries have built up mutual understanding ... which will help the bilateral relations develop in a sound and stable manner in a new era," Ma said at a news briefing.

What’s the trade?

There aren't a lot of trading options because China only allows its nationals to own stock in its domestic firms. But if you’re tempted to play the space with the FXI, don’t do it, counsels Karabell. The ETF is largely made up of “insurance names and oil names. If you want to own those names buy them outright and not through the FXI.”

Instread Karabell recommends a consumer play. “China is probably the most vibrant consumer story in the world today.” And as a result, he likes Internet stocks SINA Baidu and Sohu because they’re all generating huge incomes and still have enormous growth potential.
