As early as April this year, Bloomberg predicted that Lenovo might be excluded from the benchmark stock index in Hongkong. After being included in the Hang Seng Index in March 2013, the stock price of Lenovo has fallen by 56%, the worst of the 171 global technology stocks in Bloomberg statistics, Bloomberg reported.

In the domestic market, it has been completely defeated. According to GFK data, Lenovo has only 1 million 790 thousand sales in the domestic market, and its market share is less than 1%.
