With all the attention being focused on the

2008 Olympics

in Beijing, investors are also refocusing on Chinese stocks. However, in order to reduce risk, investors prefer the stocks that pay dividends.

So we thought we would at least provide a snapshot of the top-yielding Chinese stocks.

While you have to consider more than just yield, especially when considering Chinese companies, it is not a bad place to start given the volatility in that market.

If you are looking to diversify out of the U.S. and are considering China, take a look at some of these names, including

China Telecom

,

Yazhou Coal Mining

(YZC)

and

Petrochina

A note from James Altucher:Every weekend I send an email to Jim Cramer and several hedge fund managers about the most interesting portfolios posted on Stockpickr that week. Usually those portfolios not only list stocks according to atheme but also offer significant analysis as to why the stocks are cheap.Here are some examples: Here's the challenge: Build a portfolio at Stockpickr.com with greatanalysis, and send me the link. Each great portfolio (with analysis)will get posted on TheStreet.com with your byline (as a "StockpickrGuest Columnist") and will be included in my email I send to Jim and the otherhedge fund managers on my list.
