Yes, that's right, China Mobile is already responsible for more cell phones than there are people in the United States. Every American man, woman, and child could have 2 cell phones, and we might match the install base of this one Chinese company by the end of this year. Based on something I read in this issue of Kiplinger's magazine, China Mobile, which is the third and sexiest pick of those I am actually going to buy in real life, currently claims an install base of over half a billion. Revenues of over $67B (in April 20, 2010 dollars) and a P/E of around 12. All this in a stock market that is rapidly approaching the size of our own, with an average P/E much higer than the 14 or so of our S&P 500; in a country with a GDP that is emerging on the horizon of the same achievement as its stock market, with a currency that the world agrees is worth more than the current fraction of a dollar to which it is pinned.
One company. Just one company that already has more of the market than VZ, T, S and T-Mobile could ever hope to have of the American mobile market.
