Like Momenta, Jumei International Holding Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:JMEI) has had a massive 2015 thus far, also jumping by more than 60% year-to-date. In the case of Jumei, it has benefited from a positive overall environment for Chinese stocks, with many enjoying healthy gains during April. One of the contributing factors to those gains is the news that the Chinese government may merge some of its state-owned enterprises and institute other measures to ensure its targeted economic growth. Despite the gains Jumei is still down over 9% since its U.S IPO last May after shedding more than 40% of its value in 2014. Apex Capital held one of the only positions in Jumei heading into 2015 among the funds in our database, and a relatively small one at that, of just under 200,000 shares.
