These three Chinese companies are taking the electric scooter, e-commerce, and digital content market to new levels.

In today's video I look at fundamentals and valuation metrics for Niu (NIU 0.16%)JD (JD -2.47%), and Tencent (TCEHY -1.38%). Below I share a few highlights from the video on why investors should add them to their watch lists.
