Presidential plays emerge as market eyes hopefuls' mainland stances

HONG KONG -- Investors are beginning to seek out Taiwanese stocks that may benefit from policies favored by the two main contenders in next year's presidential election, both of whom happen to be women.

     The ruling Kuomintang named Hung Hsiu-chu, vice president of the Legislative Yuan, as its candidate last week and will make it official at a party congress next month. She will face off against opposition Democratic Progressive Party leader Tsai Ing-wen, whose party declared her its candidate in April. With voters going to the polls in January, Taiwan may get a female president before the U.S. does.
