China Cleantech Index February 2013
China Cleantech Index February 2013
Sydney, May 3, 2013 AEST (ABN Newswire) - The China CleanTech Index again rose strongly during February 2013 outperforming all of its four benchmark indices.

The China CleanTech Index rose from 37.6 to 40.2 over the month of February recording a 6.9% gain. This compared to the NEX gain of 2.1%, the CTIUS gain of 1.9%, the Shanghai Composite loss of 0.9% and the MSCI which was unchanged over the month. The three month gain for the China CleanTech Index now stands at 33.6%.
The China CleanTech 20 also recorded a strong gain of 5.9% for the month.

The Index performance is now ahead of each of its benchmark indices over the last three months and six months. Over the longer term, however, the Index still lags its benchmarks.

That cleantech stocks in China are not only outperforming other Chinese stocks but also global cleantech stocks is possible a measure of the heavy losses they have suffered over the last 2 years. The recent correction might be starting to reflect the value of the companies more accurately.

All but two of the sub-indices also recorded gains for the month. The best performing sub-indices for the month were the China Environment Index with a 20.4% gain and the China Water Index with a 15.7% gain. The China Environment Index has now recorded a 71.3% gain over the last three months. The two weakest sub-indices through February were the China Hydro Index which recorded a loss of 2.2% and the China Solar Index recording a loss of 0.5%.
