    [02] Greek stocks end up, banks suffer

    15/10/2002 16:34:41

    Greek stocks ended Tuesday's session off their days highs as a negative report by UBS Warburg on the Greek banking sector pushed bank stocks lower reducing earlier bigger gains in the Athens Stock Exchange.

    The Swiss investment bank said it was cutting significantly its share price targets for National Bank, Alpha Bank, Eurobank, Piraeus Bank and Commercial Bank, creating a wave of selling in the sector.

    The general index rose 1.27 percent to end at 1,828.87 points, with turnover an improved 96.1 million euros.

    The Bank sector was the only one to end lower (-0.49 percent), while the Publication, Insurance and Base Metal sectors scored the biggest percentage gains of the day (4.54 percent, 4.52 percent and 4.02 percent, respectively).

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks rose 0.66 percent, while the FTSE/ASE MID 40 and the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 indexes rose 2.02 percent, respectively.

    Broadly, advancers led decliners by 303 to 31 with another 28 issues unchanged.
