Top 5 China Stocks To Invest In Right Now

The new year has been a great one for stocks, but especially for China’s leading digital retailer, JD.Com Inc(ADR) (NASDAQ:JD). While the S&P 500 has rallied 3% to start 2018, JD stock is up more than 12% in less than 2 weeks of trading.

But this stock has been roaring for a while. Since early December 2017, JD stock is up more than 25%.

What is driving the rally? General enthusiasm regarding secular growth prospects in China’s booming retail market. But more specifically, this recent rally has more to do with JD’s western expansion and its offline retail push than anything else.

Those are strong fundamental catalysts which bolster the long-term growth narrative. Moreover, technicals imply that this breakout in JD stock could last for another several months. All together, I think JD stock heads materially higher over the next 12 months.

Here’s a deeper look.

Fundamentals Are Strengthening for JD.Com

JD’s fundamental growth narrative has always been strong. The digital retailer is a pure-play on China’s booming retail market, which is not only rapidly growing, but also rapidly digitizing and consolidating. All of those trends benefit JD.Com, which is the leading digital retailer in China.

    The Top Stock Market Stories for Wednesday
    The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) was off nearly 1% after the entertainment giant fell short of profit expectations. The firm reported a sharp rise in programming costs to complement a big uptick in technology investment. The company reported earnings per share of $1.87, a figure that was $0.08 short of the Wall Street consensus.
