BEIJING, April 30 (Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks fell on Wednesday, as profit-taking by investors erased the gains many stocks made during a surge late in the previous day.

China stocks were flat as there was a mix of winners and losers from a flood of first quarter results ahead of the two-day national holiday starting Thursday.

The China Enterprises Index of the top Chinese listings in Hong Kong dropped 1.0 percent.

The CSI300 index of the largest Shanghai and Shenzhen A-share listings was down 0.2 percent, while the Shanghai Composite Index was flat at 2021.02 points.   Continuación...
