Shanghai Daily - - BIZ INSIGHT -

CHI­NESE main­land yuan-backed A shares have nearly quin­tu­pled in the past two and a half years, thanks to sus­tained cap­i­tal in­flows and im­proved cor­po­rate earn­ings.

How­ever, the mar­ket started to en­counter big­ger volatil­ity in the sec­ond half of this year amid jit­ters over in­flated val­u­a­tions and a pos­si­ble eco­nomic slow­down.

Shang­hai Daily busi­ness re­porters will do a series of yearend sto­ries over listed com­pa­nies’ profit prospects and busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment in 2008 by in­dus­try.

To­day, met­als and en­ergy re­porter Fu Cheng­hao brings the sec­ond piece of his in­sight over the coun­try’s steel mak­ers and fac­tors that might af­fect their earn­ings growth in 2008. To­mor­row, our se­cu­ri­ties re­porter Wang Yan­lin will ex­plore what will likely hap­pen to do­mes­tic bro­ker­ages as the mar­ket opens wider to for­eign in­vestors.
