Hong Kong stocks flat by lunch


Hong Kong shares were flat by lunch on Thursday as profit-taking offset a positive mood after reassuring comments from US Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke on the bank's easy money policy.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index edged up 4.85 points to 21,376.72 on turnover of HK$25.95 billion (US$3.35 billion).
