Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) higher on strong economic data

China stocks rose Monday on stronger-than-expected November economic data, but Hong Kong shares fell on profit taking.

The Shanghai Composite Index rose 0.6 per cent to 2,984.39, while the CSI 300, which tracks blue chips listed on Shenzhen and Shanghai, rose 0.5 per cent to 3,987.55.

By contrast, the Hang Seng Index lost 0.7 per cent to finish at 27,508.09, snapping a three straight session winning streak.

Industrial production, which measures China’s industrial output including manufacturing, mining and utilities, grew by 6.2 per cent in November, up from October’s 4.7 per cent. Meanwhile, retail sales grew by 8.0 per cent in November, up from 7.2 per cent a month ago.

The data followed the phase one US-China trade deal last week, which some analysts say has removed a level of uncertainty that clouded the outlook of the equities market in recent weeks.

Selective brokerages performed well, with CSC Financial hitting the 10 per cent daily up limit, to 27.12 yuan; Huatai Securities rose 3.2 per cent to 19.13 yuan. Their gains came after China’s securities watchdog said it would relax requirements for A-share companies to spin off and separately list their subsidiaries on the domestic exchanges.

Tech stocks also did well, with Foxconn Industrial rising 1.2 per cent to 19.15 yuan, TCL Corp climbing 9.9 per cent to 4.33 yuan, and Universal Scientific Industrial hitting the 10 per cent up limit at 20.08 yuan.

Both Shenzhen Refond Optoelectrnoics and HC SemiTek hit the daily up limit, rising to 7.56 yuan and 7.18 yuan respectively.
