Got to agree with Star here. THey are holding for years... Why should they care what it does day to day? The lower the better because they can buy back shares at cheaper prices... although more volume would help with that.....
I am saying Zhang has around 30% of XIN and TPG has 8%-20% of XIN and they don't care what I am cool with or what you are "cool" with.... they have their strategy and and the power to go with their strategies. You either understand that with this investment or you shouldn't be in equities.
I suspect both Zhang and TPG are long term investors and don't care what the share price is day to day.....or what the peanut gallery on Yahoo msg boards thinks or cries about.
as a shareholder I expect xinyuan to be efficient mangers and maximize profits and expand the company all the time not some time in the future that's what you call a pipe dream and since tpg got involved xinyuan has suffered a 50% drop in its stock price that's some strategy
