HONG KONG, May 16 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares were set to
start higher on Thursday, helped by a 5 percent jump for Tencent
Holdings after the Chinese internet giant reported a
robust 37 percent rise in quarterly profit.
The Hang Seng Index was expected to open up 0.3
percent at 23,110.2 points. The China Enterprises Index
of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong was indicated to open
down 0.3 percent.
Tencent more than tripled the number of active users for its
mobile chat application in the first quarter, a boon to China's
largest online gaming and social networking firm as it tries to
diversify its revenue stream.
