With the arrival of the lawsuit against SinoTech Energy, there have now been five securities class action lawsuits filed against U.S. listed Chinese companies so far in the year’s second half, bringing the year to date total to 29. The law firm’s “investigation” press releases suggest that there may well be more suits yet to come. It appears that as long as the online commentators continue their barrage of negative reports about the Chinese companies, the plaintiffs’ lawyers will have a steady supply of lawsuit fodder. To be sure, eventually the wave of lawsuits against U.S.-listed Chinese companies will play itself out. It just seems that for now the lawsuit filing phenomenon still has further to run.
