Asian Stocks Erase Initial Gains as Hong Kong Shares Decline


20/03/2012 06:34 AST  Bloomberg

Asian stocks erased gains as Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd. (16) led a decline in Hong Kong shares after a director of the world’s largest real estate company was arrested as part of a bribery investigation. Exporters rose as confidence among U.S. homebuilders improved.

Sun Hung Kai slipped 1.6 percent in Hong Kong following the arrest of Thomas Chan Kui-Yuen, an executive director at one of the company’s units, by the Independent Commission Against Corruption. Samsung Electronics Co. (005930), Asia’s biggest consumer- electronics maker, gained 1.1 percent in Seoul. LG Display Co. (034220), a manufacturer of liquid crystal displays that gets about 16 percent of its sales from the U.S., rose 1.4 percent.
