Investing in small Chinese technology companies has been akin to crossing a field covered with hidden landmines. It got so risky that in 2012, Fool contributor Brian Stoffel pledged to buy absolutely no small-cap Chinese companies for his real-life holdings.

But 2013 is a new year, and a small company he has been watching for some time now has piqued his interest: Chinese e-tailer Dangdang . Though the stock, often referred to as the "Amazon of China," is not without its risks, Brian believes it has two big trends moving in its favor.

In fact, Dangdang is one of the five stocks he's considering buying in June for his Roth IRA. He's been calling out one company per month for almost two years now, and the portfolio has returned 25%, beating the S&P 500 by over 4 percentage points.
