The U.S. Senate passed legislation on Wednesday that could ban many Chinese companies from listing shares on U.S. exchanges or raising money from American investors without adhering to Washington’s regulatory and audit standards.

The bill, sponsored by Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy, would require companies to certify that “they are not owned or controlled by a foreign government.” Alibaba, the e-commerce giant based in China, saw its U.S.-listed shares fall more than 2% on the news.
Though the law could be applied to any foreign company that seeks access to U.S. capital, lawmakers say the move to strengthen disclosure requirements is aimed principally at Beijing.“The Chinese Communist Party cheats, and the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act would stop them from cheating on U.S. stock exchanges,” Kennedy, a member of the Senate Banking Committee, wrote on Twitter Tuesday afternoon. “We can’t let foreign threats to Americans’ retirement funds take root in our exchanges.”

Specifically, the statute would require a foreign company to certify it’s not owned or manipulated by a foreign government if the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board is unable to audit specified reports because the firm uses a foreign accounting firm not subject to inspection by the board. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board is the nonprofit body that oversees audits of all U.S. companies that wish to raise money in the public markets.

Furthermore, if the board is unable to inspect the company’s accounting firm for three consecutive years, the issuer’s securities are banned from trade on a national exchange.

The bill’s passage via unanimous consent around noon comes just days after the White House directed the body in charge of overseeing billions in federal retirement savings to halt plans to invest in Chinese companies
Awesome. Means more of them will just in other places. I mostly pulled my investments out of US awhile ago because they just don't perform.

Recent polling suggests Europeans are turning away from the US under President Donald Trump's leadership.
Public opinion toward America has declined in major European countries since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Seventy-six percent of Germans in a new poll said their view of America had deteriorated because of the crisis.

If you don't mind, I was wondering what you mainly look for in the stock market. Growth or income?

Potential growth with a side of dividend. Been buying a lot recently due to the giant crash.

Primary criteria is what I think will grow in value in the next 1,5,10 years etc. If there is dividend, even better.
