Albena leads Sofia bourse decliners, indices end mixed Author: Bulgarian Stock Exchange / All rights reserved.

SOFIA (Bulgaria), September 13 (SeeNews) - Bulgarian resort operator Albena [BUL:6AB] erased part of its recent gains, falling most among Bulgarian Stock Exchange-listed companies on Friday - by 2.79% to 41.8 levs.

However, Albena shares are still up by 1.46% since September 10, when the stock exchange operator announced changes to the composition of the main indices, which will see Albena become part of the blue-chip SOFIX as of September 24.

The decrease in Albena shares dragged down the two indices it is currently part of - the wider BGBX40 and the equally-weighted BGTR30.

The wider BGBX40 index, which tracks the 40 most traded shares on the Sofia bourse, closed 0.06% lower, while the BGTR30 index, in which companies with a free float of at least 10% have equal weight, erased 0.12%.

The SOFIX gained 0.11% on Friday, backed by diversified groups Doverie United Holding [BUL:5DOV] and Industrial Holding Bulgaria [BUL:4ID], which added 1.20% and 0.96%, respectively.

The BGREIT closed without change at 126.77 points.
