  1. Some of the small chinese food stocks look like bargains along with some of the chinese steel stocks. unfortunately for those of you investing in stocks like Mcdonald's and Yum brands Apple computer that do lots of their business in china you can expect only mediocre investment returns over time. The really great returns in these type of stocks were made decades ago when they were small unknow companies unlike today.
