I have written several articles about China recently, but I have just begun to scratch the surface of the problems. Data suggests that China's equity market is still massively overvalued, even after the recent correction. In a recent MarkeWatch article titled "China stocks suffer sharpest daily fall since 2007," the author (Chao Deng) points out that "data showed industrial profits in China falling 0.3% in June from a year ago."
By itself, that is hardly a remarkable number. However, even after a 28% decline from its peak, the Shanghai Composite index is still up by approximately 86% in the same period. In other words, profits have declined by 0.3% in the past year and the Shanghai Composite index was up almost 90% in response. Artificial Government intervention may continue to prop up prices in China temporarily, but prices and profits eventually converge.
