(Mar 27): The Chinese term for crisis 危机 (pronounced weiji) is composed of two characters, the first character means danger and the second character means opportunity which lends implications of a turning point. In the same way, even as investors have been spooked by the recent market volatility, they can look to companies with competitive business practices that can better create cash flow and thrive in challenging times, says Yu Xiaobo, investment director and head of China business for Value Partners, who explains why Chinese stocks offer a compelling opportunity at this time.
