Chinese tech stocks: Shanghai IPOs are outperforming US shares

By James Dennin for Kapitall.

The big economic story of the year is the upcoming Alibaba IPO, which could turn out to be one of the largest tech IPOs of all time. 

But there's more to the story of Chinese tech than Jack Ma's widely anticipated international rollout. Chinese companies raised about $3 billion this quarter, the most since 2007. 

And they've outperformed our companies, too. US stocks gained an average of 21% following their 2014 IPOs, Chinese stocks opening on US exchanges gained 33%. 

That got us thinking about Chinese stocks, so we decided to run a screen. To do that we started with the universe of about 50 Chinese tech companies with shares trading on US exchanges.

We then screened for companies experiencing spikes in institutional purchasing—as 11 in our screen were. So we set the screen even higher, only including companies that have had at least 15% of their float purchased by institutional investors this quarter.

This indicates that the experts who run hedge funds and pension funds think the stock is a strong investment. Do you think they're right? Use the list below to begin your analysis and let us know what you think in the comments.
