Years second half begins with healthy stock gains

Favorable reports on the local credit sector published on Tuesday by Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs propelled local stocks to a healthy rebound at the start of the years second half.

Also boosted by news regarding its upcoming absorption of subsidiary Ethniki Kefalaiou, National Bank added 2.62 percent. Folli Follie outperformed with gains of 5.67 percent, followed by Eurobank Properties (up 4.05 percent).

In total 77 stocks were gainers, 43 losers and 29 non-movers.

Turnover amounted to 138.3 million euros, up from Mondays 90.1 million.
