Money Morning Investment Director Keith Fitz-Gerald relies upon a simple-but-powerful mantra: "Go global or go home."
To help spread that message, this April, Fitz-Gerald will be leading a two-week investment tour of China. Participants who sign up to accompany the noted Asian-investing expert will head home with cutting-edge insights on what figures to be the world's most important market for decades to come.
As currently planned, here's a taste of what investors who attend this sojourn into Asia will get:
- Visits to four profitable China-based companies with upcoming Wall Street initial public stock offerings (IPOs).
- Insights on many high-yielding – and lower-risk — investment opportunities amid the hundreds of volatile and unpredictable counterparts.
- The lowdown on a U.S.-based company that could well end up as the best speculative opportunity in your lifetime.
- A tour of one or more of China's stock exchanges.
- Meetings that include sessions with representatives of China's largest energy providers, as well as a sit-down with officials from a consumer-products provider that is growing revenue at a double-digit clip.
And that's on top of an insider's view of sightseeing, shopping, food and hospitality – far beyond what conventional tourists get to see.
"China is a complete enigma to most Americans," said Fitz-Gerald, who has been in and around Asia for the past 20 years. "And there is absolutely no substitute for personal experience."
The easy money has been made, Fitz-Gerald said. And now it's time to focus on companies with real businesses that are profiting because of China, not just companies doing business in China.
This is especially important right now, with the U.S. economy on the cusp of recession and investors scrambling for a safe and profitable place to place their money.
China's economy is growing at a 12% clip, despite government efforts to throttle back the advance so that it doesn't overheat. Unofficially, the economy may be growing as much as 25% faster if you take into account the millions of yuan (renminbi) that trade hands daily as part of China's undocumented and unregulated cash economy, Fitz-Gerald believes.
Much of that growth is being fueled by two sources – the Chinese government and the 300 million-strong (and still growing) middle class.

"Simply put, it's one of the largest wealth-creation opportunities the world has ever seen, and companies at the nexus where these two groups meet stand to take home billions in the next few years," Fitz-Gerald said.
Past trip goers are already profiting, having reaped as much as 116% in only three weeks after their return.
