Interested in gaining exposure to China? We ran a screen with that idea in mind.

We began by screening Chinese stocks trading on US exchanges for those that appear undervalued relative to earnings growth, with PEG below 1.

We then screened for those stocks with strong sales trends, comparing growth in revenue to growth in accounts receivable. Since accounts receivable is the portion of revenue not yet received, and there is no guarantee the money will ever be received, the smaller the portion of revenue made up of receivables the healthier the company's revenue.

We screened for stocks seeing faster growth in revenue than accounts receivable year-over-year, as well as accounts receivable comprising a smaller portion of current assets over the same time period.

We were left with 3 stocks in our list.
