The problem is that Xin is far away in china, The only way to hear about it is either through unofficial channels from anybody, anywhere that is not related to xin. Or, from xin directly.
If xin is a real and solid company and really want to play ball on the NYSE, then its pr department must step up big time. Besides learning about its required filings, the pr needs to keep investors updated with other non filing related company moves.
That is the only way to combat the distance issue and the distrust issue against any chinese company. xin needs to beyond the usual in its pr effort. Not hyping, not misrepresenting, but solid, timely, transparent relay of information.
well XIN in fact is also a few minutes away from Wall Street, where it has one of the biggest apartment development site. What matter to me are facts: land, bricks and dividends. Good PR would help as well, but fact are much more important. Then if most of the market prefers to buy other companies having better PR, i am not too concerned either since I can accumulate at cheaper prices. Patience, rationality and discipline, that is all we need as investors. A bit of luck also would not harm :-)
