Home Inns & Hotels Management's Shares Popped for a While: What You Need to Know

Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Chinese hotel chain operator Home Inns & Hotels Management (NAS: HMIN) look downright cozy today, rising as much as 12.1% on heavy trading before falling back to a 2% overall drop.

So what:The stock fell 15% on Friday, and hopeful investors overshot the correction today. Home Inns did have some positive news over the weekend in closing the acquisition of a smaller rival, but that spot of sunshine didn't have enough muscle to sustain Monday's jump.

Now what: The midday announcement of a new U.S. Senate bill to pull American cash out of the Chinese economy may have sparked the downward move. Furthermore, global hotel chains such as Hyatt Hotels (NYS: H) and Starwood Hotels & Resorts (NYS: HOT) also dropped about 4% today, showing investor skepticism about the hospitality market amid a floundering global economy. Home Inns picked a bad day for a bounce.
