I mean you seems interested in stocks with the substantial shareholders who are perceived to be using 'financial engineering'. In this case, doing rights issue then buying back shares.

财技 - 'financial engineering' in a negative sense. Usually benefit the major shareholders more than minority shareholders.

Hope I explained it clearly ..hahah...

RE: Hosa International (2200)
They did placement, when I asked the CFO replied there's institutional investor coming in.
but looking at balance sheet and further cash raising, i asked him if they r planning for doing takeovers or massive capex plan

if i remember correctly he only states next 3 years' capex plan which looks normal to me, with no concrete plan with the huge cash on balance

exited my position at the time

RE: Hosa International (2200)
Took a look at Hosa International yesterday and i was quite curious how it achieves higher margins(GM: 58% OM:43% NPM:37%) as compared to similiar peers in the same industry like Anta, Xtep International, Peak Sport, China Dongxiang, 361 Degrees.

Although i understand that Hosa is in the higher end of the swimwear/fitness wear/sports underwear market, but it still sounds too good to be true. Did anyone pose this question to the management?
