Hong Kong shares may open weaker on doubts for U.S. recovery

HONG KONG, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Hong Kong shares are set to open weaker, tracking a lower close in New York on concerns about the U.S. and euro zone economies which are subduing sentiment ahead of corporate earnings results from major blue chips in the coming weeks. The Hang Seng Index closed 1.7 percent softer at 22,906.67 on Thursday, weighed down by property and financials due to fresh worries about monetary tightening and expansion of property sector curbs. The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong fell 2.2 percent.
