Agoracom Blog Small-Cap Company Feature: China Wind Systems Inc.

Posted by AGORACOM at 7:30 AM on Thursday, August 20th, 2009

As many of you know, we are very bullish on the long-term future of Chinese small cap and mid cap companies for two reasons:

1] The obvious reason – China is the fastest growing economy on the planet and nothing is going to slow down its ascent over the next 50 years and beyond. Investing in growth companies there just makes too much sense.

2] Great Results and Valuations – Many Small Cap Chinese Companies are listing in the US (OTCBB, NYSE Alternext and NASDAQ) with great financial results. Unlike many dubious US Small Cap Companies, Chinese Companies don’t seem to believe in losing money or failing to execute in a business plan. As such, 7-digit revenues and profits are very common.

From a valuation point of view, many Chinese companies became a victim of their own success in Q4 2008 and Q1 2009. Why? When the world needed to start liquidating, one of the first places they looked were China where most investors had significant gains to sell into. This resulted in the proverbial baby being thrown out with the bathwater and some great valuations.


China Wind Systems Inc – OTC.BB:CWSI


China Wind Systems supplies forged rolled rings to the wind power and other industries and industrial equipment to the textile and energy industries in China. With its newly finished state-of-the-art production facility, the Company plans to increase its production and shipment of high-precision rolled rings and other essential components primarily to the wind power and other industries.

On August 17th, the company reported Strong Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2009.

China Stocks TV Segment


  • Net revenues increased 21.5% year-over-year to $13.6 million
  • Net income increased 26.2% year over year to $1.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share


If you extrapolate the company’s $0.03/share earnings over the year, you could have a company with $0.12/share in profit for the year.  With the company trading at approximately $1.30, you have an opportunity to buy into a Chinese wind company at just a little more than 10x earnings.  I have seen better valuations out there – but if you like the wind energy business, this has a lot of appeal.

In addition, the company has announced a 1:3 reverse stock split, which is no doubt intended to help the company list on a more senior exchange.  Typically, reverse split are bad for shareholders – unless they are done for an advantageous purpose and this definitely appears to be one.

As always, this is my view in a snapshot. It is intended to give you a running start into your research. Now, you have to do your own due diligence to make sure the valuation is not impaired by other factors including balance sheet items, lawsuits or any other negative events.

If you have any comments, I’d love to see them below.
