    [04] Greek stocks end up, resist international pressures

    17/07/2002 16:43:43

    Greek stocks ended Wednesday's session moderately higher as the Athens Stock Exchange was showing more resilience to a turmoil hitting international markets this week.

    The general index rose 0.58 percent to end at 2,136.58 points, after spending only two minutes in negative territory during the entire session.

    Turnover was an improved 573.8 million euros, boosted by the listing of OPAP's shares after a successful flotation of an additional 19 percent of its equity capital.

    The Holding, Construction and Retail sectors scored the biggest percentage gains of the day (1.99 percent, 1.30 percent and 1.10 percent, respectively), while the Insurance, Metals and Cement sectors suffered the heaviest percentage losses (0.84 percent, 0.67 percent and 0.28 percent).

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks rose 0.53 percent, the FTSE/ASE MID 40 index ended 0.48 percent higher and the FTSE/ASE SmallCap 80 index rose 0.25 percent.

    Broadly, advancers led decliners by 186 to 103 with another 65 issues unchanged.
