Today, Andrew discusses Chinese-growth stock E Commerce China Dangdang (NYS: DANG) . The company, often labeled "The Amazon.com of China," is a big risk for investors. It continues to grow revenue at an impressive rate, but it has yet to become profitable and is struggling to seize a majority of the market share. The Chinese economy is beginning to slow as well, and while the country could post impressive gains well down the road, the short term looks bleak. Andrew rates it a hold for now.
