Asia Stocks Recap: Union Budget Reverberates
Chinese medical device company China Medical Technologies (CMED) plunged $8.51, or 15%, to $46. Wall Street wasn't happy with China Medical's in-line quarter; and with 5% of the float short, it wasn't hard to press shares lower Friday. "Third-quarter results were solid but were not particularly exciting compared with hyped expectations heading into the quarter," said Alex Xu, an analyst at Brean Murray Carret & Co.
Roth Capital initiated China Digital TV (STV - Get Report) with a hold rating and a $20 price target. Roth cited concerns over margin pressures for the cautious rating. Shares of STV fell 1.3% to $21.93.
