With all due respect AW, you and some others who have replied to my original post about the recent news out of China have indicated that "a bad day" or a "couple of bad days" could not reasonably be expected to have caused the recent movement in the stock. If what we are talking about is just one or two days, I would certainly agree with your comments.
Unfortunately, we're not talking about one or two days. You'll recall that in one of the articles I alluded to, it was stated that the Chinese government has been systematically under reporting the problem for some time now and that is significant news - significant enough (I think) to draw the attention of more serious investors. I believe that is what we're currently seeing in the price action of the stock. I will grant you that this may very well be wishful thinking on my part but I let's be patient and see how this thing plays out. . .
In reply to your question, "Do you really think that affected the share price of this company that has been in the China market for years?" my answer is an unqualified YES!
Check out the picture on the first page of the Wall Street Journal this morning and then go to page A11 for the story. Of course we've all been keenly aware of China's sever pollution problem for some time but suddenly it's getting a lot of world wide attention. Something IS definitely afoot.
