Next on the list is Solarfun Power ( SOLF), a solar-cell manufacturer that came public almost eight months ago. Shares quickly hit $17 as demand for Chinese solar stocks went through the roof. A few months back, Solarfun reported a horrible quarter, sending shares down as much as 25% in a single day. This, though, in hindsight was a great buying opportunity, as Solarfun now has more than $100 million in cash on its balance sheet. Last week, Solarfun announced that it has secured three multiyear framework commitments, which should consistently drive earnings for some time. It also announced that it signed its first non-domestic, long-term supply agreement (which starts in 2008). Outside businesses are starting to notice Solarfun, and so should investors. I also like Aluminum Corp. of China ( ACH), PacificNet ( PACT), China Precision Steel ( CPSL) among others.

Please note that due to factors including low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float, we consider PacificNet to be a small-cap stock. You should be aware that such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information, and that postings such as this one can have an effect on their stock prices.
