Hong Kong Retail Stock - English, finding and defining the subject.

英文教學: 在一段/句英文中如何找到主語呢?
有人說藍球中得藍底者得天下,因為不中的球都能在這裹取得控球權。
但要理解英文又怎能不先找到主語呢?因為主語不同,整句的意思可能來個100%的相反逆轉。
下文就以香港零售市道低迷的南華早報報導為例。這2句以莎莎以及莎莎的股價反彈為主語。第二句是第一句的遞進,由莎莎說到其上星期那不能持續的股價反彈。

"Sa Sa, the largest cosmetics store chain in Hong Kong, is expected to bear the brunt. Li said the rebound in its share price cannot be sustained despite its Tuesday rally of 6.5 per cent."

The part highlighted yellow was referring to the subject "Sa Sa"; The Green referring the subject will be the rebound in Sa Sa's share price, while the light blue areas are extra information for the subject of describing the "rebound level" of the share price. Remember it is the rebound of share price consider as the subject instead of just share price or Sa Sa's share.

"Multi-brand fashion house I.T limited jumped 3.61 per cent to HK$2.58 on Tuesday, but Li said speculation was behind the rebound."
