On the surface, the ‘dragon’ has a nasty case of the hiccups. But rather than breathing fire, China’s economy has sputtered in recent years as its debt-fueled building boom has finally caught up with itself. Exacerbating China’s current problems even further have been the election of Donald Trump and his stance on trade between the two nations. This has squarely put the U.S. on the map, while Chinese stocks are on the back burner.
However, the nation continues to be a big and growing part of the global economy. And there are plenty of reasons why China still belongs in your portfolio – even if you’re looking for income.
With that in mind, investors may want to bet big on China before the dragon has a chance to catch its breath.
