A Financial Times Service
China Confidential - Premium Investment Insight
14 August 2012

Short interest in some of the largest Hong Kong-listed Chinese corporates has declined substantially over the past month. This has been driven primarily by improving investor sentiment across global equity markets as well as expectations of further monetary policy easing in China. However, average short interest is higher compared to earlier this year, suggesting that short-sellers are abandoning larger names in search of smaller (and lesser-known) targets elsewhere in the market.
