    Just a day after DANG tanks Alibaba comes out and admits to finding some accounting irregularities. As I said before, you can't trust Chinese businesses. They believe their above the law and that U.S. investors are suckers.

    How many stocks of Chinese companies listed in the U.S. have crashed and burned? Too many to count, costing U.S. investors billions in losses.Investors own nothing but paper when investing in any U.S-listed Chinese company. They may be lucky enough to get a return. They still own nothing should things go south. Investors own part of a company when buying a stock of a U.S. company on a U.S. Exchange.The information I have supplied is from five years of due diligence and can be verified by research. It is not based in hype of promises of unlimited returns. Until China catches up with the U.S. in regulating their companies and protecting shareholders, investing in Chinese companies is a #$%$ shot at best.

    There is an informative article called "The Risks of China's Internet Companies on U.S. Stock Exchanges" written by Kevin Rosier. Most of these companies are set up as Variable Interest Entities, or VIEs. Long story short, this structure calls into question whether U.S. investors own anything when they buy into a stock such as Dang or even Alibaba. The implosion of smaller cap Chinese stocks on the U.S. markets is another learning lesson for U.S. investors. There is no protection for U.S. investors when Chinese companies implode. Until China and Chinese companies follow and create laws that protect investors in Chinese companies, the value of these companies should be highly suspect and they should not be welcome on any western exchange and especially on any U.S. exchange.
