Chinese Stocks in the U.S.: +6.8 to 435.8, 05-27-11, Bank of New York Mellon, ADR Index-China

Insight: Although Asian markets were mixed, Hong Kong stocks posted modest gains Monday. Turnover was very weak, with U.S. and U.K. markets closed for a holiday. Investors' focus this week will be on the Chinese Purchasing Manager Index to be released Wednesday and on some large-cap IPOs. One IPO scheduled for Friday is paper-based packaging products maker Zhengye International (3363). KGI Research

Quotable: "Looking forward into next week, most attention in the market will continue focusing on the euro-zone debt crisis. Market sentiment will remain cautious in the near-term as weakness in the A-share market prevails. Upward breakthrough may be difficult with such overhang but we see the HSI to have good support at the 22,500 level." BEA Securities. 5-28-2011

Chinese Company to Watch: Kunlun Engery (135) "China's LNG market may grow faster than expected leading to re-rating in Kunlun Energy." Guoco Capital. 5-30-2011
