Complete List Of All Chinese Reverse Merger Companies

Tyler Durden's picture

Some time ago we created a short basket of Chinese fraudcaps based on every single Buy recommendation from disgraced brokerage firm Global Hunter Securities. So far the basket has returned about 50%. However, as Sino Forest indicates, there is much more room to go as fraud after fraud get exposed. Therefore, to make readers' lives easy in creating a new and improved Chinese short basket, below is every single Chinese company which began trading through a reverse merger on the NYSE and Nasdaq. Sooner or later, 99% of these companies will be trading at $0.00, although neither the cash strapped Nasdaq, nor the irrelevant NYSE will ever refund listing fees to the soon to be defunct companies. In the meantime, creating a short basked from all of these names is easily a good repeat of a slow bleed trade.

Full list of every single reverse merger still trading:

NO, but you may get fly lice!

Gulf Resources GFRE is/was wollonchuck's best picks with all his sycophant followers loading the boat long on that one as it collapsed from 10+ down to 2ish I wonder if they're all doubling down now at these bargain prices lol

Their corporate naming has got a lot more focussed since the days of the "Number One Great Wall Storm Door Trading and Airline Company, Inc."

Tyler perhaps you should do some research into my research analysis ratings methodology you obviously don't get it.  7% cash and 10% BWs on any banking deal = strong buy.  

I have no idea what your problem is or why you are so fixated on this subject, my research methodology has been profitable for some select folks.

youngman's picture

That is quite a list...I wonder if anyone in the SEC has the balls to look at these as a fraud...or is theft legal least on Wall Street...I know..I is...I was just dreaming

BeerWhisperer's picture

Investd in CALI based on their fundamentals provided on the K report and market research. No new news or reports and it has dropped 40% despite a growing market in that sector. If this becomes a fraud cap, can I file a lawsuit against nasdaq for lack of due dilligence etc... hypothetically?

Wonder Auto Technology, WATG at $5.42 looks good to me, the legal fees alone are daunting.

I just can't get into stocks that trade 250k a day with all the auto bots on patrol. It's like driving through a small town with speed trap and out of state plates.

Attaching the word 'China' to the name of your reverse-merger scam is, more often than not, a dead giveaway.  It is similar to the late nineties, early aughts when companies would append '.com' to their names before IPO'ing because investors could not get enough exposure to '.com' 'names'.  When the bubble burst, the new fad was to remove the '.com'.  The moral of the story is dumb money is dumb.

Here's some more information for the Chinese Reverse Merger list. It has today's prices, the 52 week high and low, and 5 day average volume. It will be interesting to see how they shake out in 6 months or so.


The format looks kinda goofy, but if you copy it, and save it in .CSV format, you can open it in Excel. I couldn't see any other way to do it. If somebody else can figure out a way to post a formatted page, that would be great.

Thank you for the list!  While I cannot post it in format (at least I didn't try) I did put it into excel and did some quick math.

For those who are interested in a short play:

KEYP is trading at or over over 70% of its 52-week high. (High: $5.75: Price: $4.88)  That might be the best short for those bearish on this whole list.

KEYP, BEST, EVK, HOLI, HRBN, NIVS, SVA, THTI, WWIN, YTEC are all trading at  or aabove 60% of the 52-week high.

Obviously my point is that if you beleive these will all go to 0, as a % from their 52 week high these higher price to 52 week high ratio stocks have the best R/R for shorts. (And, risk of a more painful bounce or squeeze is lower as it is probably unlikely the higher ratio stocks will hit new highs (meaning moves of 30%-40% (apx) against the short), whereas a stock already down 93% could realistically double (giving the short a 100% paper loss) even if the real dollar loss may remain relatively low).

Happy trading! (data may be inaccurate, not a solicitation, post is just opinion of poster and he actually advises you not to listen to him at all trade at your own risk do your own DD, IANAL, IME you will probably do better than me, I think too fast, my excel skills are very mediocre, my judgement is flawed, I take drugs recreationally in addition to those taken by doctors advice do not take my advice in fact ignore everything said above this paragraph it would be best indeed if you close this thread and go make love to a consenting adult)

In  OIL & GAS Journal:  Just saw this.  This would have been one entity I would have thought might be straight!

It is actually old news, but this was posted today in the Journal:


Puda Coal Received Notice from NYSE Amex of a Failure to Satisfy Certain Continued Listing Standards

PR Newswire

TAIYUAN, Shanxi Province, China, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- On June 20, 2011, Puda Coal, Inc. (NYSE Amex: PUDA) (the "Company") received a notice from NYSE Amex LLC (the "Exchange") informing the Company that it failed to satisfy the Exchange's continued listing standards by not timely filing its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, specifically Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE Amex Company Guide (the "Company Guide") and the Company's listing agreement with the Exchange.  In order to maintain its listing, the Company must submit a plan of compliance by July 5, 2011 to demonstrate its ability to regain compliance with the applicable continued listing standards by no later than September 20, 2011.  In addition, the Exchange has requested that the Company provide a comprehensive update regarding the Audit Committee's investigation into certain previously-reported allegations regarding Mr. Ming Zhao, the Chairman and controlling stockholder of the Company.  If the plan is accepted, the Company will remain listed during the plan period, during which time it will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the plan.  According to the letter, if the Company does not submit a plan of compliance, or submit a plan that is not accepted, it will be subject to delisting proceedings.  Furthermore, if the plan is accepted but the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards by September 20, 2011, or does not make progress consistent with the plan during the plan period, the Exchange staff will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.  The Company may appeal a staff determination to initiate delisting proceedings.

The Company is currently considering its responses to the Exchange.  Trading in the Company's stock has been halted by the Exchange since April 11, 2011.

fellatio is not fattening's picture

I know the Reverse Merger issue is a bit old, however I came across this post on Seeking Alpha and did what research I am able (not too extensive) and if correct this may very well be a buy:


Kingold Jewelry (KGJI): A Chinese jeweler that has been caught up in the negative reverse merger news. However, I’ve only seen one piece of evidence that groups Kingold Jewelry with potential trouble. There is a good chance that the stock has sold off for reasons not specific to the company. I’ve just come across the name, so I welcome any information from investors who have followed the stock more closely. The stock went public in the U.S. in August last year and has dropped from $8 to below $2. If it is legit, it’s trading at only three times earnings and nearly 20% below its stated cash and inventory with no debt.

CEO Hong Jia Zhi is attempting to soothe investor concerns by making a large purchase of company stock. From June 8 through July 6, he bought 200,000 shares between $1.43 and $1.78. The company also issued an open letter to shareholders in early May. It’s inevitable that some legitimate Chinese RTO companies are not risky. If you haven’t been completely scared away from the space, you might be interested in doing some extensive research on this one
