Jeff Reeves’s Strength in Numbers: Consider these five China investments as trade talks progress

A year ago, there was talk about how a crashing economy and a trade war was going to tear apart China and spill into the West.

But so far in 2019, Chinese stocks have been as good as high-flying U.S. investments. Case in point: The iShares China Large-Cap ETF FXI, -0.53% the largest China-focused exchange traded fund with more than $6 billion under management, is up 15% since Jan. 1 to slightly outperform the S&P 500 Index’s SPX, +0.00% returns.

Chinese stocks are looking to build on this success over the past few months, too, on the heels of recent data that showed the nation’s manufacturing sector expanded at the fastest rate in eight months.
