But the question for new investors is
should I buy Chinese stocks today?
A glance at an article in Bloomberg
Markets indicates that this might not
be the time while Chinese stocks
fall their most in three weeks as
traders bet on a weakening Yuan.
Chinese stocks dropped the most in
three weeks, led by industrial
companies and small-cap shares,
amid concern that a weaker yuan will
limit prospects for further stimulus
and state-backed funds will sell
shares.
The Shanghai Composite Index
declined 0.8 percent at the close.
Beijing Originwater Technology Co.
posted its biggest loss since
February.
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index rose
0.3 percent, reversing a loss of as
much as 0.6 percent.
The ChiNext gauge of small-cap
companies slid the most since July
27.
“To stabilize the yuan, the People’s
Bank of China may have to reduce
liquidity in the domestic market,” said
Hao Hong, chief strategist at Bocom
International Holdings Co. in Hong
Kong.
“The market will be consolidating in
the short term.”
The Chinese economic miracle
seems to have come to an end.
There a several reasons for this.
First of all the effects of the Great
Recession are still being felt across
the globe so Chinese exporters are
dealing with fewer orders.
The country is importing fewer raw
materials which hurts emerging
market nations dependent on
commodity sales which in turn further
reduces buyers of Chinese products.
And China is following the same path
as Taiwan, Japan and South Korea in
that its workers are getting older and
demanding higher pay.
China has become less competitive
at a bad time.
And there is the matter of Chinese
debt.
Dangerous Chinese Debt
Burden
When you ask yourself should I buy
Chinese stocks consider the debt
burden that China has taken on.
While its economy was growing at ten
percent a year or better it was a
functional business model to take on
debt to fuel growth and subsequent
profits.
But the debt taken on since the Great
Recession has not resulted in the
same level of growth as before.
Barron’s looks at China’s debt
problem.
The Chinese economic profile shows
stark contrasts.
Its legacy of rapid and sustained
growth for three decades is
unsurpassed.
At the same time, however, China
has accumulated debt at an
extraordinary scale for a developing
economy.
This could weigh heavily on Chinese
and global economic performance in
the years ahead.
The day of reckoning is not here yet.
But history suggests that a debt build
up has consequences.
In general, China’s economy and
financial system are vulnerable and
susceptible to shocks when there is a
significant accumulation of debt.
In the 1990s, Thailand and Mexico
buckled under the burden of heavy
debt.
These are relatively small economies,
and they had external debt issues.
China is a large economy and faces
domestic debt problems.
The Japanese experience after the
1980s debt boom and the recent U.S.
financial crisis following a credit surge
are closer to the Chinese situation.
The smart betting says that China will
follow the Japanese example with
much slower growth and deflation.
Should you buy Chinese stocks?
Strong companies a large offshore
market might be good bets as the
Yuan weakens and makes Chinese
products more attractive but beware
of high debt loads in the land of
managed capitalism.
