China stocks Property Shares Rise december 26 2012

Stock market today - China stocks Property Shares Rise december 26 2012 : China’s stocks swung between gains and losses as technical indicators signaled equities were overbought after the benchmark measure erased this year’s decline yesterday. SAIC Motor Co., the biggest Chinese automaker, dropped for the first time in seven days, losing 3.2 percent. Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. paced declines for lenders, sliding 1.2 percent. Developers Poly Real Estate Group Co. (600048) and Gemdale Corp. climbed for a third day on speculation the government’s urbanization plan will support housing demand.

The Shanghai Composite Index (SHCOMP) fell 0.1 percent to 2,211.06 as of 1:12 p.m. local time. The measure yesterday wiped out losses this year of as much as 11 percent and climbed above its 200-day moving average. The CSI 300 Index (SHSZ300) slid 0.1 percent to 2,446.14, led by consumer discretionary companies such as automakers. Hong Kong’s market is closed today for holidays.

“The momentum is still there as the economy continues to recover and new leaders promise more reforms to boost growth,” said Wang Weijun, a strategist at Zheshang Securities Co. in Shanghai. “The market might have some fluctuations at this level but the trend is upward.”

Trading volumes in the Shanghai Composite were 70 percent higher than the 30-day average today. The index has risen 13 percent since this year’s closing low of 1,959.77 on Dec. 3 as the nation’s new leaders said they would promote urban development as part of economic reforms.

The 14-day relative strength measure for the Shanghai index, measuring how rapidly prices have advanced or dropped during a specified time period, was at 72.8 yesterday. Readings above 70 indicate a price may be poised to fall.

SAIC slid 3.2 percent to 1642 yuan. The 14-day relative strength measure for the stock was at 85.2 yesterday. The shares have jumped 21 percent over the past month, twice as much as the Shanghai index.

China’s money-market rate climbed on speculation banks are hoarding cash to meet year-end capital requirements and holiday withdrawals. The seven-day repurchase rate, which measures interbank funding availability, rose 13 basis points to 3.85 percent as of 11:54 a.m. in Shanghai, according to a weighted average rate compiled by the National Interbank Funding Center.


The Shanghai Composite, up 0.4 percent this year, trades at 10.8 times estimated earnings, compared with 12 times for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, according to weekly data compiled by Bloomberg. Thirty-day volatility in the gauge was at 20.2, compared with this year’s average of 17.

China’s largest cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou will limit populations under a new urbanization plan, while smaller cities and towns will loosen controls on residency, the Shanghai Securities News reported, citing an unidentified person.

The country will also improve infrastructure and public services for transportation, communication, sewage and garbage disposal, health-care and education in urban areas, the report said. Urbanization is expected to spur 40 trillion yuan ($6.4 trillion) of investment by 2020, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported yesterday, citing a draft plan by the National Development and Reform Commission on urbanization.

“Developers are gaining on the government’s call to use urbanization as a new engine for growth,” Gao Jian, an analyst at Northeast Securities Co., said in a phone interview.
