Chinese highly rated company which researches, develops, manufactures, and markets nutrition supplement products, including wellness products and dietary supplement products. Trading at just above book value, with a PE of under 8. Earnings growth rate above 100%, and almost no debt. Easy pick.

In a pitch from two days ago, mrindependent crunched a few numbers of his own:

Tiens Biotech is a Chinese manufacturer/marketer of nutrition supplement products. The numbers are impressive. Sales have increased slightly through this downturn. After subtracting $0.50 per share of net cash, I use an adjusted share price of $2.33. this is approximately 4.6 times earnings.
