Chinese internet companies grow their users bases and their ability to monetize them, could result in rapid revenue and earnings growth.

Curated by Motif Investing


China's already the biggest internet market in the world. But their 591 million users represent a tiny 44% penetration rate. Which means there's plenty of room to grow. During the first half of 2013, 26 million Chinese opened a browser for the first time.

But here’s the angle: China's internet market is dominated by local companies. They'll skip over Google to search with Baidu, which controls 65.7% of the market. China's online advertising market reached $11 billion in 2012, up 46.8% over 2011 and is expected to grow further. China has already surpassed the U.S. as the world's largest market for smartphones and by the end of 2013 it is expected to be twice the size of the U.S. market. All of which has many investors looking East for potential good fortune.
