    [03] Athens Bourse Close: Stocks end higher in lively trade

    30/04/2003 19:32:46

    The Athens bourse finished higher on Wednesday with players buying into mainly high capitalisation paper, including banks and Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE).

    The general share index gained 1.58 percent to end at 1,691.52 points. Turnover was 397.1 million euros, fuelled by a block trade in Cosmote with Telenor of Norway selling 9.0 percent of its holding in the firm to institutional investors.

    OTE closed with gains of 2.78 percent.

    On Tuesday, players dumped stock in OTE and its mobile subsidiary Cosmote on news that Morgan Stanley had lowered its rating on the heavily traded parent firm, lowering their prices sharply and dampening sentiment across the board.

    The FTSE/ASE-20 index for blue chip and heavily traded stocks ended 2.34 percent up; the FTSE/ASE-40 for medium capitalisation paper 1.28 percent higher; and the FTSE/ASE-80 for small cap equities finished with gains of 1.22 percent.

    The FTSE/ASE-140 closed 2.04 percent up.

    Of stocks traded, advances led declines at 219 to 97 with 44 issues remaining unchanged.
