I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency in the last month and this one was right near the top of the list. Since the Trend spotter signaled a buy on 11/8 the stock is up 18.11%.

I am very cautious about Chinese ADRs. I do not have a lot of confidence in their revenue and earnings projections. If you think the current technical indicators are enough for you to buy please buy only if you can afford to lose. Note what happened back on 9/23 where in a 2 day period the stock dropped from 2.61 to 2.15 and floundered for a couple of months before its recent climb. Be nimble on this one.
