YTD A-Share Prices
Gloria Van Rees
YTD prices for key A shares are lower across all sectors. Banks are priced at 8.16 as of September 11,2-18. That is a YTD decrease of -19%. Mining and real estate had similar YTD loses of 29%. For all we write about real estate and mining profit and revenue growth, the momentum is not translating to stock prices. Banks and mining have both experienced market pressures, yet the takeaway here is how real estate for all the focus on it, stocks of the companies that deal trade in real estate are not buoyed by revenue and profit growth. Chinese investors seem to see pressure ahead.
