ATHEX: Stocks feeble against drop on Monday

Banks were not supportive enough, though all but one ended up in the black.

The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index closed at 794.60 points, adding 0.64% to Monday’s 789.58 points. The large-cap FTSE-25 index expanded 0.58%, ending at 1,898.58 points.

Τhe banks index improved 0.60%, with Alpha earning 1.87%, National growing 1.72% and Piraeus climbing 0.81%, as Eurobank declined 1.47%.

Among the other blue chips, Lamda Development fetched 4.02%, Jumbo climbed 3.21%, Quest Holdings increased 2.56% and Coca-Cola HBC as well as Motor Oil rose 2.15%. Terna Energy lost 1.03%.

In total 58 stocks recorded gains, 40 took losses and 20 remained unchanged.

Turnover amounted to €48.3 million, up from Monday’s €40 million.

In Nicosia, the general index of the Cyprus Stock Exchange decreased 0.58% to close at 66.55 points.
