On CAPS, 97% of the 770 members who have rated Guangshen believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Frycup and All-Star rd80, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community.
Just last month, Frycup listed several of Guangshen's positives: "China, Chinese consumer growth, hard assets, value play. All beautiful things."
In fact, Guangshen currently trades at a paltry price-to-cash flow of 4.5. That represents a clear discount to North American counterparts Canadian National Railway
CAPS All-Star rd80 lists several reasons to climb aboard Guangshen:
1. Very reasonable valuation.
2. Trains are cool.
3. Decent dividend.
4. Yuan is likely to get stronger vs. the dollar.
5. Growing economies need to move stuff. Rail is the most efficient way to do that over land.
6. I don't have any Chinese stock picks yet. Might as well start with a 5-star.
