SHENZHEN B shares fell yesterday, hurt by recent falls in Hong Kong stocks and weak real estate shares, traders said. The Credit Lyonnais Shenzhen B share index ended the day down 19.84 points, or 1.77 per cent, at 1,100.81. ''Foreign investors have been selling property stocks in favour of industrials,'' said a dealer with Shenzhen's J&A Securities. ''Recent falls in Hong Kong and the US have also hurt sentiment,'' he said. Real estate developer Gintian shed five cents to HK$6.20 on volume of 20,000 shares, according to Bloomberg. Properties and Development fell 10 cents to $5 with 340,000 shares changing hands. ''What foreigners hate most of all are property companies which engage in other businesses,'' the J&A dealer said. ''They prefer industrial stocks which stick to their core businesses.'' One such stock, China Bicycle, was among the day's most active, closing unchanged at $6.10 with 756,000 shares traded. The biggest fall was port operator Shekou Port, which shed 8.8 per cent to close at $4.50.
