Year End Rankings of Korea's Top Groups--Market Value Gains
Year-end means 2007 rankings of Korea's top conglomerates. A number of rankings will surface in the next few weeks.
This chart lists Korean Groups that posted the strongest gain in market value this year among stocks of top 10 conglomerates, according to the Korea Exchange.
The market value of Hyundai Heavy Industries and its affiliate Hyundai Mipo Dockyard increased 199 percent to 39.9 trillion won ( about $40 billion) since the beginning of this year.
Analysts attribute the stocks' strength to steep rises in global demand for shipbuilding in connection with China's trade growth.
