Hong Kong: HANG SENG INDEX (.HSI) seeing some long-term institutional buying coming back
Hong Kong shares ended at a nine-month high on Tuesday after economic data from the world’s largest economies allayed worries about a global downturn.
The Hang Seng Index added 0.2% to 29,624.67, its highest closing since June 20. Casino operators Galaxy Entertainment Group and Sands China rose 4.1% and 2.1%, respectively, building on their advances on Monday, when gaming revenue data released by the Macao government came in better than expected. Wynn Macau and MGM China Holdings rose 1.5% and 1.1%, respectively.
The three key U.S. equity indexes each rose more than 1% on Monday, after better-than-expected factory activity data from the U.S. and China helped ease concerns of a global slowdown. The Hang Seng Index entered a technical bull market on Monday — rising more than 20% from its October lows. It has risen 14.5% so far in 2019 as hopes of a resolution to Sino-American trade tensions and receding concerns over rising U.S. interest rates helped.
The Hong Kong stock market’s valuation “has gone from cheap to normal,” said Kevin Leung, director of global investment strategy at Haitong International Securities. “We are seeing some long-term institutional buying coming back, both international and mainland.”
The gauge “still has room to rise, but the climb will not be straight,” he said.
