SHANGHAI, April 30 (Reuters) - China stocks rose on Tuesday despite worse-than-expected factory activity data, as analysts say concerns over the economy had been largely priced in after a sharp correction the past week.
** Hong Kong stocks slipped, dented by declines in energy and consumer shares.
** The CSI300 index rose 0.2 percent to 3,907.63 points at the end of the morning session, while the Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.4 percent to 3,075.74 points.
** Factory activity in China expanded for a second straight month in April but at a much slower pace than expected, an official survey showed on Tuesday, suggesting the economy is still struggling for traction despite a flurry of support measures.
** Yang Hongxun, Shanghai-based analyst at investment consultancy Shandong Shenguang, said after the recent correction, investors are looking past weak economic data. "We've already seen worries about the economy, and tighter monetary policies. I don't see worse news ahead," Yang said.
** China's five-largest state-owned banks posted modest first-quarter profit growth, though slightly below expectations, as policymakers pushed lenders to make more loans to support the slowing economy.
** China's CSI300 financial sector sub-index was lower by 0.3 percent, the consumer staples sector up 0.76 percent, the real estate index down 0.4 percent and the healthcare sub-index dropped 0.35 percent.

** The yuan was quoted at 6.7379 per U.S. dollar, 0.05 percent weaker than the previous close of 6.7346.
