Chances also are that for the first time since reporting our yearly best performing securities, this year 2020, might go into history that 50 percent or more will be Chinese Technology Companies.

Based on the above, maintained our rating of the stock of Meitaun Dianping at STRONG BUY and raised the ones of NIO Inc., Alibaba to STRONG BUY as well.


We do not currently own shares of Meitaun Dianping in our personal portfolio yet, but we do own shares of NIO Inc and Alibaba.

In this rapidly changing world and subsequent turbulence, PGM Capital is at your service as your Professional, Trustworthy and Dedicated, Financial Advisor and Asset Management.

Last but not least, before taking any investment decision, always take your investment horizon and risk tolerance into consideration. Keep in mind that share prices do not move in a straight line. Past Performance Is Not Indicative Of Future Results.

Yours sincerely,

Eric Panneflek
