I am currently in 5th place picking mostly Chinese growth stocks on Caps contest: Champion of the World.
If we were allowed to close picks and add more than 100 picks I could have easily gained another 50% on my current 1,912 point gain in the contest.
I could have added LIWA, CPBY, and others which I missed originally.
Most of the gains were because of how amazingly cheap some Chinese stocks got during the 2008-2009 crash. Stocks like JST, HRBN, FUQI, VIT, CFSG, ACH, BIDU, CPBY all crashed over 50% from 2007-2008 highs by early 2009.
CPBY is still one stock that is 50% off its highs of 2007-2008.

The Major Challenge to China’s Water Resources
China’s water infrastructure is under great stress. China faces widedspread water scarcity, frequent floods in the south and east and droughts in the north and west. The country also suffers serious water pollution which heavily strains the environment. China's water supply is smaller than the United States but is home to approximately five times as many people. It is estimated that 300 million Chinese citizens have no daily access to clean water. Over 700 million Chinese citizens drink water that does not meet current World Health Organization standards.
Water usage in China has quintupled since 1949, and almost 90% of underground water in Chinese cities is affected by pollution.
In short, China is struggling to procure clean and provide enough potable water for a growing population. As a result of the high population density, the poor ratio of available water supply to demand, and regional imbalances in available water, China faces serious challenges in managing its usable water supply. These challenges in managing water resoures provide Tri-Tech strong growth opportunites in helping to provide usable water, reduce the effects of drought and alleviate flooding.
Tri-Tech provides customized solutions and integrated technology to Chinese governmental bodies across China. These include extensive monitoring and management expertise following installation. Future strategies include broadening product offerings by extending product lines to upstream and downstream business segments, strengthening research, building alliances with research institutions, diversifying the client base and seeking early entry into new markets.
Lines of Service
Wastewater and Tail Gas Treatment
Tri-Tech's sewage treatment and water recyling technology includes automation and management systems for large cities. This technology allows a city to electronically control the system to react to chemical and other changes. These systems also allow smaller municipalities to reuse and recycle both grey water and industrial waste water. Other services include patented biofiltration odor control systems, chemical scrubbing odor control and process and monitoring for recycling.
Water Resource Management
Tri-Tech is a leader in drought and flood control through the use of remote terminals that provide multiple levels of data including rainfall measurement and early warnings for small watershed flood hazards. Groundwater is monitored for water quality using remote terminals systems. For water resource use and management, Tri-Tech has developed irrigational and agricultural water conservation systems, a national flood control system and water resource monitoring equipment as well as systems for managing municipal water supplies.

The Outlook Through 2010, China’s environmental investment is expected to be approximately $184.2B. Approximately $39.5B is expected to be used for water resource management, urban water management, wastewater treatment, sewage reuse and water treatment. Between 2007 and 2009, the Chinese allotted approximately $526M in special funds to establish a National Water Resources Management System.
In November 2008, the Chinese government announced a $585B stimulus package in response to the global economic crisis. This included approximately $3.3B for environmental projects.
The company is currently pursuing 100 river basin flood monitoring and forecasting systems in more than 100 counties with a market potential of $72.5M. Additional projects are being pursued through distributors and partnerships with a potential value of $43.5M.
The company is pursuing wastewater treatment business in several markets including Tianjin Binhai where the government plans to construct over 40 large pumping stations and 30 sewage treatment plants with a total market potential of $8.7B. Hebei Province plans to construct 50 sewage and grey water reuse treatment plants in the next two years. The company is also seeking business in the industrial wastewater and process tail gas treatment market in the petrochemical industry. Sales are expected from early flash flood warning system projects in Hubei and Tsinghai provinces. Increased sales also are anticipated in a long-distance water transfer project with dozens of urban water supply tasks for major cities including Beijing, Tianjin and Shijiazhuang where the company is already engaged. The company plans to increase its workforce and is setting up new offices.

Myriad Pharmaceuticals Announces Two Abstracts Selected for Presentation At 2009
ICAAC Annual Meeting
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 10, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Pharmaceuticals Inc.
(Nasdaq:MYRX) today announced that two abstracts have been selected for
presentation at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and
Chemotherapy (ICAAC) Annual Meeting, being held September 12-15, 2009, in San
Francisco, CA.. Presentations will disclose new findings about MPC-4326, a
Myriad Pharmaceuticals' drug candidate being developed as an oral treatment of
human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) infection.
The abstracts can be accessed through the ICAAC website http://www.icaac.org/.
Abstract titles are provided below, however, please note that according to ICAAC
policy, all data are embargoed until the presentation time. Once presented, all
posters and presentations will be available as PDF files on the Myriad
Pharmaceuticals' website (http://www.myriadpharma.com/).
Abstract # H1230 (Monday, Sep. 14, 2009, 10:00 AM - 10:15 AM): Efficacy, Safety
and Pharmacokinetics of MPC-4326 (Bevirimat Dimeglumine) 200mg bid and 300mg bid
Monotherapy Administered for 14 days in Subjects with HIV-1 Infection
Abstract # A1-1309 (Monday, Sep. 14, 2009, 11:15 AM - 1:15 PM): Pharmacokinetics
and Safety of a Novel 100 mg Tablet Formulation of MPC-4326 in Subjects with
MPC-4326 (bevirimat dimeglumine) is MPI's investigational new drug being
developed as an oral treatment of human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1)
infection. MPC-4326 is a potent small-molecule that acts as a viral maturation
inhibitor and is a first-in-class drug candidate with a novel mechanism of
action. New drugs with novel mechanisms of action are needed to combat the
evolution of HIV drug resistance to the currently available therapies.
Importantly, preclinical studies have demonstrated that MPC-4326 exhibits potent
activity against a broad range of HIV strains, including isolates that are
resistant to currently approved HIV therapies. MPC-4326 could therefore
strengthen the portfolio of approved drugs being used in combination to treat
patients with HIV.
Clinical studies in over 675 subjects to date have shown MPC-4326 to be well
tolerated and have demonstrated significant and clinically relevant reductions
in viral load in patients. Approximately 60% of all HIV patients are infected
with strains of HIV that are sensitive to MPC-4326, and these patients can be
readily detected with a simple and proprietary genotyping assay. MPC-4326 has
been granted Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The company expects to initiate a 24-week, controlled, two-arm efficacy study
(Phase 2b) of MPC-4326 in HIV treatment-experienced patients in the second half

Aug Breifing estimate: 2.1% Analyst estimate:
Focus Media (FMCN) outdoor acquisition by SINA . The main hold-up is the Chinese government's extensive review process, which I believe is occurring due to the upcoming 60th anniversary of the communist party on October 1st. When that date passes, I think the government may give the green light to the acquisition.
In addition, both sides continue to want the deal to consummate and Sina has even added Focus Hot Brand Zone to its website, which is an advertising section on the site for Focus Media's outdoor clients. Clearly that would have not occurred if both sides had cooled to the deal or if they believed that the government would strike it down. Plus, no major shareholders have come out against the deal.
