The stock price of Chinese property developer Sunshine 100 fell to an all-time low on Monday after the company defaulted on its bond payments.

The developer on Sunday defaulted on $170m bond principal and $8.9m interest payments due to “liquidity issues arising from the adverse impact of a number of factors including the macroeconomic environment and the real estate industry,” it said in an exchange filing.

The announcement came after fellow realtor Evergrande said it cannot guarantee sufficient funds available to meet its debt obligations due today, underscoring the tight liquidity faced by Chinese property firms after the government tightened leveraging rules.

Stock price plummets

Sunshine 100’s stock price plunged 14.1% to 34 Hong Kong cents on Monday, while Evergrande’s shares also hit record low after shedding nearly 20% at HKD1.81.

The company added that the default on Sunday will trigger cross default provisions under certain other debt instruments which may become immediately due and payable if the creditors choose to accelerate.

Sunshine 100 said that it has not received any notice from creditors regarding accelerated payments.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
