Chinese Property Giants See Fortunes Diverge During Crisis
(Bloomberg) — China’s two biggest property developers saw contrasting fortunes in the first half as the nation’s real estate crisis deepened.
Country Garden Holdings Co., the largest builder by sales, posted a record 96% drop in profit on Tuesday, citing a “severe depression” in the property market. Bucking the slowdown, its biggest rival China Vanke Co. reported an 11% increase in net income, propelling its shares higher on Wednesday morning.
