POWERED BY IGNITE FUNDING

For a long time, real estate investing has been perceived as an exclusive domain reserved for the wealthy. However, this is no longer the case as accessibility to real estate investment opportunities has increased over time. Trust deeds are one of the ways real estate has been more accessible for both investors and borrowers.

TOMORROW’S TRADE IDEA, TODAY

Bringing Investors Back

The past year hasn’t been kind to Chinese stocks. The economy has been dragged down by an exodus of foreign capital and a declining real estate market. 

But there might be signs of a turnaround on the horizon. The country has been pumping the economy full of stimulus, and February saw consumer prices rise only 0.7% year-over-year. Factory activity expanded for the third straight month in January. 

According to Kamil Dimmich of North of South Capital, investors should start looking at China again.

Amer Sports

The Shanghai Composite Index (SHCOMP), which saw a 5-year low at the start of February, is up more than 4% in the past month and 2.75% this year. 

China Market Research Group’s Shaun Rein is bullish on health and wellness stocks like Amer Sports (AS). The Finnish retailer owns brands such as Salomon and Arc’teryx, both popular footwear names in China. 

Amer Sports stock is up over 21% this year and over 9% in the last month alone.

Xinyi Glass & Fufeng

Dimmich is bullish on two lesser-known stocks, Xinyi Glass (XYIGY) and Fufeng (0546).

Xinyi Glass manufactures glass products for both construction companies and car manufacturers like Ford (F) and General Motors (GM). Shares are down almost 32% over the past 12 months but are beginning to trend higher, up around 39% over the past month.

Fufeng produces flavor enhancers, fertilizers, and starch. Over the past 12 months, its share price is basically flat. But, like Xinyi, it’s been trending up lately. The stock is up around 13% over the past month.

The tides may be starting to turn in China. Analysts believe the country is starting to emerge from its downturn and think these stocks could offer investors considerable value in the long term.

Which stock do you think will outperform over the next 12 months?
