Berko: Some thoughts on investing in Chinese stocks

August 19, 2018, 6:05 AM

Dear Mr. Berko: Our stockbroker wants us to invest about 20 percent of our $510,000 joint account in Chinese stocks. He has given us a list of 20 stocks to buy that sell for between $8 and $21 a share. I don’t recognize any of the names (list included), but they’re supposedly the best and biggest stocks on the Hang Seng index. Our broker is very enthusiastic and believes that this Chinese portfolio could double in three to five years. We are conservative investors in our late 40s and can’t afford to make mistakes. We figure we have 20 years to build value. Please share your thoughts on these Chinese recommendations.
