American Lorain Corp (ALN) is an international processed and convenience foods company based in China whose stock we just bought.  Why we bought:
 
-Trusted brand name for 15 years, with executive who was powerful politician 
-Number of stores with ALR - brand products reached 3578 in Jan '10, up from 2000 in mid '09
-Goal to reach presence in 5000 stores by the end of 2010
-Low p/e
-Big name partners(i.e. Wal-Mart, Pizza Hut, KFC)
-Great comparative metrics when compared to peers' stocks (CMFO, HOGS, etc...) we've already traded profitably
