BEIJING — Lock-up shares worth about 47.84 billion yuan (more than $7 billion) will become eligible for trading on Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges in the coming week.

The amount is 42.09 percent more than this week, according to Zhejiang-based Hithink RoyalFlush Information Network, a financial information provider.

Lock-up shares from 34 listed companies will become tradable from July 24 to 28. Electric car maker BYD Co Ltd is set to unlock shares worth 12.73 billion yuan on Tuesday, the largest from a single company next week.
