Shares of Chinese property developer Evergrande jumped over 70% on Wednesday, leading gains on the Hang Seng Index.

The real estate sector was the top gainer on the HSI, but the overall index was still in negative territory, dragged by health-care and industrial stocks.

Other stocks like Country Garden Holdings and Logan Group also surged, gaining 23% and 26% respectively, while the Hang Seng Mainland Property Index was up about 4%.

The gains come after Country Garden reportedly managed to pay $22.5 million in bond coupon payments on Tuesday, narrowing avoiding default. The bond payments were originally due in August, but Country Garden submitted the payments hours before a 30-day grace period expired.
