XIN became a public company via an IPO listing in 2007, with Merrill Lynch being its lead underwriter. Its auditor is Ernest and Young, a Big Four auditor. XIN has used Ernest and Young from the very beginning, even prior to its IPO. It currently has a 6% dividend yield that is very attractive in a low yield environment. Short sellers have driven stock prices to absurd levels, because they think all US-listed China stocks are frauds.
Xin looks to be one of the Solid companies in a lousy market. XIN is 1st company listed on NYSE . To do that you have to meet accounting standards .
