Chinese Stocks Losing Ground In U.S After “Black Monday” In Homeland

It was a disastrous Monday for the Chinese stock market, as the Shanghai Composite index slid by 8.5%, its biggest one-day fall since 2007. Xinhua, the official news agency of the country, called it “Black Monday”, with the Chinese stock market giving up all of the gains it had achieved in 2015. Shares of Chinese companies trading in the United States are feeling the after-effects of the slump. Ltd (NYSE:WBAI), Jumei International Holding Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:JMEI), and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) have all started trading on a much lower note.

We don’t just track the latest moves of funds. We are, in fact, more interested in their 13F filings, which we use to determine the top 15 small-cap stocks held by the funds we track. We gather and share this information based on 16 years of research, with backtests for the period between 1999 and 2012 and forward testing for the last 2.5 years. The results of our analysis show that these 15 most popular small-cap picks have a great potential to outperform the market, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by nearly one percentage point per month in backtests. Moreover, since the beginning of forward testing in August 2012, the strategy worked brilliantly, outperforming the market every year and returning 118%, which is more than 60 percentage points higher than the returns of the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) (see more details).
