Who would have thought decades ago that China
would become the world’s manufacturing
powerhouse? Anyone who invested in the
Chinese company Alibaba near the start of 2016
for $60 a share made a five-fold profit by
October of 2020 when the share price hit $309.
Many other investments in Chinese stocks
gathered similar profits.
Then the effects of Covid-19, security concerns in
the West, a real estate bubble, and excessive
debt have dragged the Chinese economy down.
Unemployment in the 16-24 year-old age group
now runs about 25% as college graduates are
not finding jobs. As noted with Alibaba whose
share price is down to $94 a share, investment
in China has not done so well of late. But why
else should US investors worry about China’s
economy?
The World Relies on Big Economies
The US, EU, and China function as engines of
growth for the rest of world. Countries that
rely on raw material exports for their foreign
exchange need buyers. Smaller but technically
savvy nations like Taiwan, South Korea, and
even Japan rely on more populous
industrialized nations for much of their
exports. When China reduces imports of raw
materials the effects are felt by big countries
like Brazil and smaller nations like
Mozambique and the Solomon Islands.
Slowing Chinese industrial production reduces
their technical and raw material imports and a
slowing internal economy slows their import of
finished goods from everywhere in the world.
The bottom line is that when China slows
down it slows down the world as well. The
world economic outlook projected by the IMF
sees the global economy slowing by half a
percent over the coming year.
How Much US Corporate Revenue Comes From
China?
There were two dreams of many US companies
early in China’s rise. One was to manufacture
things in China for less than at home and sell to
the world for a higher profit. The other was to
sell to the huge and steadily more affluent
Chinese market. The companies that had the
highest revenue exposure and made the most
corporate profits out of China were these as of
August 2020.
Wynn Casinos, 75% of revenue
Qualcomm, 66% of revenue
Micron Technology, 57% of revenue
Broadcom, 50% of revenue
Texas Instruments, 44% of revenue
IPG Photonics, 43% of revenue
AMD, 39% of revenue
Veco Instruments, 35% of revenue
Maxim Integrated Products, 34% revenue
Intel gets 26% of its revenue from China, Nvidia
gets 23%, and Apple gets 17%. Boeing,
Caterpillar, GM, Starbucks, Nike, and Ford all
gain a significant portion of their revenue from
sales in China but all hover around 10% and
some, like GM, are seeing their income from
China decrease.
The point is that a slowing Chinese economy will
hurt folks who do business there from casinos
to chip makers who supply for smartphones
made in China to folks who make and/or sell
their products there. The situation with the
Chinese economy is compounded by the
decision by the US and its allies to quit
exporting the highest end chip and technology
to China due to national defense concerns.
Investing in China for Non-Chinese Is Not Such
a Good Idea Anymore
Bloomberg published an article about how directly
investing in China is getting harder and
harder. Bit by bit China has been denying
information about its economy to outsiders,
even to those headquartered in Hong Kong!
Information as mundane as official statistical
yearbooks, patents, and corporate registration
are not available to anyone outside of the
mainland.
A recent feature of this shutdown is that a data
platform from Shanghai, Wind Information
Co., is not renewing subscriptions to outsiders.
Doing business in China and investing in
China have always been a bit risky due to
doctored information coming out of the central
government.
But people have generally been able to get around
that by going back to the original data. Now
that has become much harder. The point,
according to Bloomberg, is that you need no
longer bother doing business in China unless
you are mainland Chinese.
As China’s economic issue worsen they will take
more and more steps to hide that news not
only from foreigners but from their own
population. Of course, it will be hard to hide
the fact that so many youth are unemployed
from a 21-year-old college graduate who
cannot find a job. But that is China’s problem.
The issue for a US investor will be to look
elsewhere for investment opportunities as
tensions with China mount and their economy
stagnates.
