Top 10 China Stocks To Own For 2014
The stock market started this week off the same way it did last week — with a pullback stemming largely from earnings-related announcements. As of 10:50 a.m. EDT, the Dow Jones Industrials (DJINDICES: ^DJI ) has fallen by 59 points, or 0.4%, while other major benchmarks are also moderately lower. Yet behind the scenes, another piece of discouraging news could have an even bigger impact on the Dow — not just today, but in the long term as well.
On one hand, the obvious negative news for the Dow came from Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT ) , which announced lower profit, reduced capital expenditures, and guidance for future earnings that came in at the lower end of its previous range. In particular, mining-equipment sales were a sore spot for the company, as falling prices for commodities have left miners in a much more precarious financial position that won’t support as many large equipment purchases. Yet with all the news from China and elsewhere in recent months pointing toward a slowdown in industrial activity, Caterpillar’s news wasn’t surprising, even though the stock dropped nearly 1% after initially posting gains near the open.

The miner has agreed to purchase the iron-ore contract mining division of contractor Leighton Holdings, which services BHP Pilbara operations. This will allow the mining company to switch to an owner-operator model, leading to reduced cost and increased safety oversight.
Iron ore accounts for about 40% of BHP’s earnings, and the move here is a good one for the company.
In addition, BHP chairman Jacques Nasser recently discussed in an interview with China newswire Xinhua that his company is confident about sustained growth in China. Nasser said the global market turmoil has not changed the company’s view.
Nasser said: "China will continue to grow. I was there recently, and I walked away believing their focus was right, that we may not see 10, 11, 12% growth anymore, but we will see 7, 8, 9% growth, and the texture of the growth may change." Buy BHP.

2013 is supposed to be a year in which China continues re-balancing its economy toward consumption and domestic growth. If that actually happens, Home Inns & Hotels Management (HMIN), with its 1,682 hotels in 243 cities, should be a major beneficiary, since spending on travel is one of the fastest-growing parts of the consumer economy.
If, on the other hand, Chinese economic growth doesn’t re-balance but merely perks up to 8% or better, the hotel company should still do very well. Home Inns has built up a loyal customer base, with 10.6 million unique active members in its frequent-guest program. And its third quarter showed a pickup in revenue, up 62% year over year, and RevPAR (revenue per available room), up to 157 yuan ($25.20) in the quarter from 149 yuan ($23.92) in the second quarter.
