Incidentally I also I increased my ownership of Soundwill holdings and added China Print Power to my personal portfolio. I also recommended TCS (No ADR) and Wipro (WIT ) on the Indian Stock exchanges to my friends and family. I do not like the WIT ADR because it trades at a premium to the Wipro stock on the Indian NSE.
- Chinese Estates Holdings Ltd 0127.HK (Hong Kong), price 12 HK$, p/Tangible book 0.72. Latest results say NAV is 16.74 HK$. In June the company said that it MAY be considering takeover offers. That explains the recent price surge, a takeover would be expected to be atleast at NAV. Has recently fallen since peak of 16HK$. Company has paid dividends consistently for 5 years, Has been buying back stock. Did make losses and not pay dividends like other real estate stocks in 2002 , If market values of properties fall, the company must reflect this as a loss, that is the biggest risk. Financial summary. NAV has grown consistently. I like their website, unlike some HK companies the site was easy to navigate and has a lot of information. See review of HK property maket. At 4.7% yields office property is not in a bubble. Worth a closer look.
