Alternative Energy in China, sun rise or sunset ?

Alternative Energy is focusing on big country Chinese economic growth two-digit number steadily in recent years makes the energy security is an issue most important issues of the country. At this energy by about 80 percent of China's coal comes from a power source with high carbon emissions. And make China the number one in place of the world's carbon source.

Chinese authorities are aware of this problem and have previously announced master plan to big time Investing that China will use wind energy at least 30 gigawatt year 2020 but this seems to be the goal now will be too easy. Because in the few days this year at the China wind power and volume, 12 gigawatt installation is a leap up. And has announced plans for a new target for the year 2020 will be using wind power to 100 gigawatt.


Using wind energy around the world right now is 121 gigawatt, China is ranked as the fourth after the United States, Spain, and Canada.

But anyway it quite conflict of Invest because now is Glooming period of Solar Energy Stock China-based LDK Solar (LDK) reported a second-quarter loss of $2.03 per American Depository Share (ADS) on a 48% drop in revenue, to $228.3 million, compared with a profit of $1.29 per ADS a year ago on $441.7 million in revenue. A write down of $176.3 million on a plunge in value of its inventories accounted for most of the $216.9 million quarterly loss.

To invest in Alternative Energy Stock you have to be-careful I think it really delicate business to the world direction because it's option not necessary as mainstream energy like Big Cap stock such as Oil or Petrochemical Stock which have a crowded buy/sell volume. I used to buy Solar Energy Stock at very low price before economic crisis a year ago and sell it at as many as I buy it. Because I have been scared about the cost of raw material that have rise up every day. That seem a big luck to me to sell it before Economic melt down. Anyway Alternative Energy Stock is still been observe maybe it will turn back to the point after people relieve.

Basic Filter for Over seas stock

In presents over seas stock become more popular invest option for investor around the world. Investor from west looking in to East markets in other clock wise Investor from East side try hard to find the way to invest in Nasdaq too. However a command problem of most new face investor is how to filter them out from other stock among the big various in the list. This articles I'll talk about personal investment and you can learn about over seas stock markets and try your own.



The main Idea is

  1. Market capitalization
  2. Price/earnings ratio
  3. Dividend yield
  4. Price-to-book ratio


1. Market capitalization
I would like to study the stock which small market cap when I buy in intimately market. But for over seas stock I'd like to give directions to Big market cap. Some one think small market cap stocks can provide higher returns compared with big market cap companies and that is true but it's safer to invest your money into Big market cap because when the market hit the problem or something wrong happen you can cut loss that easy to sell your stock any time and it's not too difficult to read the information, news and detail of the company by website or newspaper.

2. Price/earnings ratioP/E ratio
Everyone know it not easy to find big market cap stock which is good Price/earnings ratio (P/E) but anyway blue chip stock is should have P/E lover than over all market and you need to compare P/E of top 30 companies in that country and make sure you buy it in reasonable price.

3. Dividend yield
This is one of the most important thing if you buy over seas stock because each time you make trade online with your broker I believe they will charge you for extra fee more than you trade in your market but you need to compute this fee approximately how many time in a year you make trade by the system. "Good company should pay good dividends" I strong believe about it and most of Big Cap Stock have a fixed dividend payout policy compare with Small Cap Stock some time company may not able to pay good dividends. It doesn't mean Small Cap Stock isn't good but we have to be careful about "global business" some times you don't know when will Small Cap Company will back to normal productive situations and pay you Dividend and again you can't sell it because it'll have low tender offer in a day.

4. Price-to-book ratioP/B ratio
How is it good if you can own Good company stock in lower price than company owner costs? It very hard to find lower price to book In normal situation unless the company has some problem or under world economic problem. Anyway not easy to find a good price but when you need to buy stock at market price higher than book price you should not pay more than 1.5 time P/B ratio of the owners costs invested.

Lastly, above four filter is main important thing to invest in over seas stock of me. But you have to study about company and read balance sheet carefully.

Valuing A Business Before Investing Into It

Business valuation is the assessment of economic value (Fair market value) for that business. You may need business valuation for a number of purposes, for example when you are looking to invest in some business, or planning to buy/sell some enterprise. Business valuation is not only handy when investing into some business, it also helps in taking better decisions when you are getting into partnership with someone or seeking loans for your business. Valuation is normally carried by professional appraisers, first because it is a complex task and needs professionals to do it; second an outside party will provide a more objective and neutral report. However, a better understanding of what contributes into the valuation of businesses will help you to progress into the right direction.



Just like any other financial report, the appraiser or valuator needs to disclose what approach has been applied for business valuation as all approaches have different pros and cons. Three approaches mostly used for business valuation are

i) Asset based approach
ii) Income based approach
iii) Market approach

Sometimes a combination of all of these approaches is used.

Asset Based Calculation:
Anything of economic value, that a business own is called an asset. As the name suggests, in asset based approach a business worth is calculated as the sum of its assets (both tangible and intangible) minus the total amount of its liabilities. These figures are picked from balance sheet. In liquidity based approach, assets are valued by the net amount they can generate in case their owner decides to sell them in the market.

Income (or earning) Based Approach:
Several methods are used in Income based approach, but the most appropriate method is "discounted cash flows". Unlike asset based approach where business is valued by the value of assets, this approach focuses on the future earning potentials. The drawback of this approach is that it depends mostly on the projected cash flows and expected returns, which are not guaranteed to be correct.

Market Value based Approach:
Market value based approach seeks to determine the business value by comparing it to some recent sales of similar type of businesses. There are no real calculations involved and this is merely an estimated value, which relies on the simple demand and supply rule for the markets.

Most experts recommend a combination of these approaches for a more realistic result. There's no single approach that will suit all types of businesses; stakeholders can choose an approach of their liking or leave it to the professional valuator to decide the most suitable one.
