HONG KONG, June 20 (Reuters) - Hong Kong stocks bounced back on Friday as the beaten-down Macau gaming sector rebounded, but China shares looked set for their fourth straight losing session amid a spate of new intitial public offerings.

By midday, the Hang Seng Index was up 0.2 percent at 23,218.86 points, but still down 0.4 percent on the week due to losses in the previous four days.
