The 2021 Stansberry Conference & Alliance Meeting

1) The 2021 Stansberry Conference & Alliance Meeting in Las Vegas wrapped up yesterday, and I'm flying home this afternoon.

The government's crackdown has cut many Chinese tech stocks in half. But Steve argued that the selloff is overdone and recommended two ways to profit from this: First, buy a basket of stocks in the sector via the KraneShares CSI China Internet Fund (KWEB) and/or shares of Alibaba (BABA).

He presented a slide like this one, showing that Alibaba's stock is currently trading close to its lowest level ever on both enterprise-value-to-sales and price-to-earnings multiples:
