Hong Kong Stocks Post Biggest Loss in Asia on Weak Earnings

Hong Kong’s stocks dropped the most among Asian markets after Chinese energy producers reported poor results and U.S. equities slumped.

The Hang Seng Index slid 1.5 percent at the close, its steepest loss in three weeks. Oil companies were the biggest drag in the city’s benchmark gauge, with PetroChina Co. sliding after posting its first quarterly loss since listing in 2000. Cnooc Ltd. dropped more than 2 percent after reporting a decline in revenue. The Shanghai Composite Index fell 0.3 percent.

While China’s economy is showing signs of stabilizing, that hasn’t filtered down to corporate earnings. Of the 180 companies listed in Shanghai that have reported three-month figures and are tracked by Bloomberg, 51 percent have missed analyst expectations. In Hong Kong, 38 percent of companies have trailed projections. In the U.S., this earnings season is predicted to be the worst since the financial crisis. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index capped its biggest loss in three weeks on Thursday after the Bank of Japan refrained from adding more stimulus measures.

The Hang Seng Index’s losses pared this month’s gain to 1.4 percent. The Shanghai Composite capped a 2.2 percent loss in April. The CSI 300 Index slipped 0.1 percent on Friday, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng China Enterprises Index fell 1.3 percent. Hong Kong and China’s markets will be closed on Monday for a public holiday.
