    [02] Greek stocks rebound spectacularily on ASE

    14/08/2001 16:22:15

    Equity prices rebounded spectacularily on the Athens Stock Exchange on Tuesday halting a six-day decline that pushed the market around 7.0 percent lower.

    Telecoms shares, spearheaded by Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (up 4.40 percent), led the rebound following a very positive report by Morgan Stanley over the stock's and the wider market's prospects.

    Traders said the fact that only 10 stocks suffered losses and that the general index managed to end at its day's highs were proof of the rebound's strength.

    The general index ended 3.04 percent higher at 2,690.46 points, with turnover a moderate 118.621 million euros, or 40.42 billion drachmas.

    The FTSE/ASE 20 index for blue chip and heavy traded stocks ended at 1,497.09 points, up 2.46 percent, the FTSE/ASE 40 indexe jumped 3.47 percent to 306.18 points, and the Small Cap index ended at 892.38 points, up 4.07 percent.

    The parallel market index for smaller capitalisation stocks ended 2.94 percent higher.

    Broadly, advancers led decliners by 338 to 10 with another five issues unchanged.
