What's Happening With Beigene Shares During Wednesday's Session

Beigene Ltd BGNE shares are trading lower by 3.41% to $185.03 Wednesday morning on downward momentum following Tuesday weakness. Shares of several Chinese stocks fell Tuesday after China's central bank made cuts to its one-year loan prime rate and five-year rate amid attempts to stimulate the country's economic recovery.

According to Reuters, China has implemented its first reduction in key lending benchmarks in 10 months. The move aims to support a decelerating economic recovery. However, due to concerns regarding the property market, the easing measures were not as extensive as anticipated.

According to data from Benzinga Pro, BGNE has a 52-week high of $280.62 and a 52-week low of $124.46.
