Stocks that capitalize on chinese consumers When i first traveled there in 1987 the streets were filled with bicycles, travel restrictions were severe, drab colored mao suits were ubiquitous and luxuries were nonexistent. Twenty five years later china's economy is 40 times larger, unimaginable wealth has been created, and with it has come a seemingly insatiable appetite for luxury goods and brands. Chinese consumers now account for a third of global sales for italian high fashion brands prada prada and gucci.Total annual spending on luxury goods by chinese consumers is nearly $49.3 billion, Bain Co.Estimates show, compared with the $60.4 billion shelled out by Americans. Do you really think paris or milan dictates the latest fashion trends?China is driving growth at the largest luxury brands. If the chinese consumer is demanding certain colors, cuts and styles, we will see more of those on runways and in collections worldwide. Nowhere is china's heavy influence more apparent than in the market for jewelry.From 2010 to 2015 demand for jewelry is expected to grow by 52% in china and 44% in india. To meet that demand, diamond production is expected to grow 40% from 2010 to 2020.It's known particularly for its colored gems, including a shade called bubble gum pink.Petra shares have a price/earnings ratio of 17.4, and its enterprise value to cash flow multiple is less than two.The company has more than 1, 600 hong kong retail outlets and a strong presence in 320 cities on the mainland. Forbes dividend stock daily service sends you one great dividend stock idea every trading day. High end fashion apparel and accessories are also fertile ground for investors.Michael kors(Kors, 50), which trades on the NYSE, is another red hot favorite among Chinese.It recently opened its fifth, and largest, store in china and expects to open 15 more by the end of the year. There are some important things to keep in mind when investing in chinese luxury stocks. First, the chinese are well informed about brands, prices and quality.Forget the commonly held belief that the chinese love counterfeit goods.This is a big change from just a few years ago when people would buy just about anything with a certain logo on it. My research firm specializes in"Man on the street"Interviews.One striking observation we recently made was a sharp drop in aspiration for foreign brands versus domestic brands in certain categories. Chinese consumers increasingly want to buy local, especially when it comes to sportswear and cellular handsets.These manufacturers tend to be more nimble in adapting to local tastes at appropriate price points. Its stock trades at a p/e of 14.9 and five times cash flow.Other local brands to watch are kweichow moutai kweichow moutai and privately held fashion and bridal gown maker ne tiger. Investors would be wise to tap into chinese demand for luxury.Most brokers can help you buy hong kong traded shares.But keep an eye on local competition.The chinese have a saying: "If a string has one end, then it has another end.
