Chinese property shares continue their climb following Beijing's
subtle change in tone towards the sector. Here's what's moving
in HK/China beyond the indexes.
** China Overseas Land : +1.1%, one among a handful
of shares in HK seeing relatively healthy volumes, company
continues to show steady sales even as gearing declines. Ups
full-year target for sales.
** Lenovo : +1.9%, busiest stock on the Hang Seng
index as case builds for IBM to jettison its server
business and Lenovo seen as a strong candidate to take it over.
Q1 results due mid-August & could provide next leg up.
** Want Want China : -1.6%, top loser on Hang Seng
index for second day, leads consumer staples sector lower. China
Resources Enterprise down 1.5%.
** MGM China : -4.6%, significantly underperforms
casino peers following quarterly loss.
** Lee & Man Paper : -7.4%, little respite for
debt-laden paper manufacturer despite healthy first-half. Lower
likelihood of price hikes in the second-half sees half the gains
made from end-June wiped out in 3 days.
