China is the world's second largest economy and home to hundreds of enterprises that conduct business in the United States. Trip.com (TCOM), Tesla (TSLA) competitor BYD (BYDDF), Vipshop (VIPS), Baidu (BIDU), and Alibaba (BABA) are now China companies worth monitoring or possibly purchasing.
After a difficult couple of years, Chinese equities have recovered. The Covid epidemic, as well as Beijing's zero-Covid policy, wreaked havoc on the economy. Meanwhile, governmental crackdowns on technology and data-centric corporations like Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY), and NetEase (NTES) have been a significant source of friction. Covid restrictions have been lifted, and the tech crackdown seems to have halted. However, economic activity has been disappointing in recent months.
The People's Bank of China slashed numerous loan rates in June, and the government extended a tax exemption for certain electric cars, but investors seem to want more.
Tensions in the United States are a source of worry. In recent months, the White House has prohibited supplies of critical semiconductor technology to China, in addition to tariffs and other restrictions on Chinese imports. Beijing has responded.
However, following a lengthy period in which it was difficult to locate five top China stocks to purchase or monitor, a rising number of Chinese firms are establishing themselves. Li Auto (LI) has moved way past buy zones, but it is still worth keeping an eye on. Nio and XPeng have risen after extended falls.

BYD is China's leading EV manufacturer and, more recently, the country's largest carmaker overall. It is also the leading manufacturer of electric cars, including plug-in hybrids with great mileage. It still trails behind Tesla in battery electric cars, or BEVs, but the margin has shrunk significantly.
BYD reported preliminary first-half results on July 13, with profits increasing by much to 225% year on year. That means Q2 earnings increased by up to 171%.
BYD did not hurry into the pricing battle, while reductions and price cuts increased in the second quarter.
BYD sold a record 262,161 EVs in July, up 61.3% from the previous year and 3.6% over June's 253,046. BYD sold 134,783 all-electric BEVs and 126,322 plug-in hybrids out of the 261,105 passenger cars sold.
In July, overseas sales reached a new high of 18,169.
