I have filtered the list of Chinese companies on the SGX using good old Shareinvestor and came up with a list of companies with net profit margins above 10% and return on equity of at least 15% thereabouts. It’s a good way of categorising and keeping track of possible companies to invest in. A note of caution: this is neither a recommendation to buy nor to sell. Valuations and prices have not been taken into account. Here’s the list, grouped according to industry with a brief description of each business:
