Top 10 China Stocks To Invest In 2019

In 2016 the U.S. fast-food giant YUM! Brands Inc., spun off its China unit- newly titled YUM China Holdings Inc.

YUM China became an independent publicly traded company on November 1, 2016 trading as (YUMC) on the NYSE.

Investment Thesis:

In an emerging market economy where chicken is the preferred protein, having only five restaurants per one million people is the very definition of an unsaturated market ripe for growth. Benefiting from the growing middle-class in China, YUM Brands (now YUM China Holdings) has decades of accumulated consumer know-how and loyalty in China, as its brands are integrated into popular culture and consumers’ daily lives.

With new store development in a country where 75 million people are flocking to cities each year, Yum China is well positioned for long term growth.
