Solar Recovery Continues to Drive Index Growth
Sydney, Aug 5, 2013 AEST (ABN Newswire) - The China CleanTech Index rose strongly in July 2013 to resume its strong performance from earlier in 2013. Over the month, the Index outperformed all but one of its four benchmarks.

The China CleanTech Index rose from 37.0 to 39.8 over the month of July recording a 7.5% gain. This compared to the NEX gain of 8.0%, the CTIUS gain of 7.3%, the Shanghai Composite gain of only 0.7% and the MSCI gain of 5.2%.

The China CleanTech 20 also recorded a good gain for the month of 6.9% although behind the wider Index showing that there is strong growth amongst some of the smaller stocks in the Index.

The Index performance for the last 12 months shows a gain of 22.1%, which is ahead of the Shanghai Composite and the MSCI but lagging the global cleantech related indices.

As shown overleaf, of the 14 stocks that recorded gains of more than 30% over the month, eight of these were solar companies.
