China was among the casualties of the recent relatively indiscriminate selloff in emerging markets, leaving its shares cheaper than laggards Turkey and Argentina and potentially opening a bargain buying opportunity.
“With an estimated 2014 P/E (price-to-earnings ratio) of 8.1, China is cheaper than Turkey, whose economy is in a tailspin. With China’s industrial profits growing at a robust 12.2 percent year-on-year, this makes no sense to us,” David Goldman, managing director at global financial services group Reorient, said in a note.
“That makes China the cheapest major market in the world on a forward-looking P/E basis (and the cheapest it’s ever been),” he said.
