China Unicom (Hong Kong) (CHU) rose 7% last week after its 3G users topped 14.06 million, as of Dec. 31, 2010. Users grew 15% from the earlier month, surpassing the company's own set target of 10 million users. Meanwhile, LDK Solar (LDK) advanced 6.8% after the company raised its guidance for the fourth quarter on the optimism of a brighter outlook for the solar industry.

Yingli Green Energy Holdings (YGE) gained 6.7%. The company recently announced becoming the official premium partner of FC Bayern Munchen, one of the most successful and popular football clubs in the world.

China Telecom (CHA) rose 3.5%, buoyed by a 34.43 million increase in CDMA users to 90.52 million during 2010. In 2011, China Telecom will provide more subsidies for 3G smart phones and plans to launch a marketing partnership with mobile phone manufacturers.

China Shen Zhou Mining & Resources (SHZ) headed the losers' list, dropping 28.5%. AgFeed (FEED) fell 19.4% as inflation fears gripped China's markets.

China Southern Airlines (ZNH) slipped 13.5% on the concern that the industry's earnings growth will be affected as snowstorms spur flight cancelations.

Among other losers, Agria (GRO), Origin Agritech (SEED) and China Precision Steel (CPSL) plummeted 12.6%, 11.7% and 10%, respectively.

Sify Technologies (SIFY) emerged as a major gainer last week, after posting a 76% increase in its third-quarter EBITDA, to $2.1 million, on a total operating revenue of $38.72 million.

Patni Computer Systems (PTI) gained 2.4%.

Finally, ICICI Bank (IBN) edged up by a marginal 0.8%. Edelweiss Capital believes that investors should stay invested in private sector banks like ICICI for longer-term benefits.
