Investors reap gains on bourse

Most stocks registered losses on yesterday’s session of the Athens bourse, as investors chose to cash in on the gains of the previous days, though the strong rise of international markets came too late to affect the domestic one. The Athens Exchange (ATHEX) general index dropped to 2,234.81 points yesterday, falling by 1.93 percent from Monday’s close. The blue chip FTSE/ATHEX 20 index declined by 2.02 percent to end at 1,155.39 points. There were losses across the board, but the biggest among blue chips were for Hellenic Petroleum (down 8.12 percent), Marfin Popular Bank (8.05 percent), Hellenic Postbank (7.22 percent) and Mytilineos (5.51 percent). There were gains for Bank of Cyprus (up 4.84 percent), OPAP (0.89 percent) and OTE telecom (0.26 percent). Turnover reached 235.2 million euros.
