There generally is no restriction by other country.

In fact Chinese individuals and firms often purchase real estate through such entities as well.

Is there any particular reason you ask?

As long as ownership is not prohibited by foreign entities under government regulation.

Don't you read the papers?

In the following article alone, Chinese investments in the US total almost $20 Billion, and that's probably just the tip of the iceberg.

The answer to your question is yes.

The questioner may have been focused on the difference if any between individuals and companies.

The large investments in the news are usually done by Chinese companies but this person seemed to be interested to know if individuals can also buy or hold shares of the DE corp.

The answer still being yes as to both.

Even individuals in China can buy abroad but there are certain restrictions on converting currency.

And that sometimes puts ordinary citizens at a disadvantage. FYI
