    By Reuben Brewer - May 10, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CHL, CHA

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has been struggling to prove that it still has growth ahead of it. In order to put that question to rest, it either needs to bring out a new revolutionary product or find a new market with lots of customers. On the latter count, China is a market close enough to touch that Apple hasn't been able to fully tap yet.

    If someone were to survey a random sampling of the people closest to me, he might conclude that I am a die-hard cheerleader for Chinese investment.  I would argue, however, that this is not the case.  For if I am a cheerleader I am a poor one, at best, for I only cheer when the team is winning.  At worst, I will abandon the team when it becomes obvious to more »

    By Daniel James - December 28, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CMGE, CHA, CHU

    The last few years have been pretty brutal for Chinese stocks, posting losses from 2009 to 2011. Partly, this is a result of slowing economic growth that has investors spooked about the health of the world’s second largest economy. However, some analysts maintain that the worst may be behind us for Chinese equities, as the macro economic data suggests that the Chinese economy may finally be recovering. However, as more »

  • 2 Companies Calling Growth Investors

    By Chad Henage - October 20, 2012 | Tickers: T, BRCM, CHA, QCOM

    It should come as no surprise that telecommunications companies could be good investments. When you consider the popularity of both smartphones and tablets, and the increased use of mobile data, it seems obvious that investors would want a piece of this growing pie. With this in mind, I went to the Fool.com CAPS Screener to try and come up with some new investing ideas. However, I wanted companies that not only played in the telecom. arena, but also companies with some consistency in their results. I ran a screen for companies that had both 10% revenue growth, and 20% EPS growth over the last three years. To make sure they would be well established and have the capital to expand, I also limited my search to large caps. This was a tough screen and only two companies made the cut: China Telecom Corp. (NYSE: CHA) and Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM).
