BUCHAREST (Romania), October 23 (SeeNews) – Bucharest share indices bounced back on Friday, notching up moderate gains in low volumes as investors wait for visibility to improve on the domestic political horizon, brokers said.
The blue-chip BET index of the Bucharest Stock Exchange, BVB, rose 0.76% to 4,676.03 points. The BET-FI index, which tracks the country's five regional investment funds, the SIFs, gained 1.11% to 23,372.05 points.
The composite BET-C index added 0.84% to 2,822.26 and the ROTX index of Romania's 15 most liquid stocks, a joint index of the BVB and the Vienna Stock Exchange, was up 0.88% to 9,863.87.
“The mood at today's close was no different from what we got used to this week, which is a mood of anticipation. Trading volumes were moderate, which comes to show that investors are waiting to see when and how the political situation will become clearer,” one broker told SeeNews.
Romania is currently governed by an interim cabinet. Prime minister-designate Lucian Croitoru on Friday unveiled a new cabinet line-up, which will be presented to Parliament for approval next week.
BVB's turnover rose to 14.7 million lei ($5.2 million/3.4 million euro), including 3.1 million lei worth of bonds, from 11.1 million lei on Thursday. The number of traded shares, however, increased slightly to 25.7 million from 25.1 million on Thursday.
SIF 5 Oltenia ended up 0.87% at 1.16 lei in the day's largest turnover of 2.6 million lei. Blue-chip oil and gas group OMV Petrom jumped 3.91% to 0.292 lei on deals worth 2.2 million lei, Friday’s second largest turnover.
Blue-chip bank BRD closed up 0.78% at 13 lei in the session’s third largest turnover of 1.4 million lei, while its blue-chip peer Banca Transilvania added 0.56% to 1.8 lei in 1.1 million lei turnover.
SIF 2 Moldova rose 1.92% to 1.06 lei in 1.2 million lei turnover, and SIF 1 Banat Crisana ended 0.9% higher at 1.12 lei in deals worth 441,000 lei. SIF 4 Muntenia climbed 1.37% to 0.74 lei in 336,000 lei turnover.
Blue-chip oil refinery Rompetrol Rafinare dropped 3.66% to 0.0631 lei in 482,000 lei turnover after Romania’s capital market regulator CNVM asked its majority shareholder, Dutch-based Rompetrol Group, to submit a second independent valuation of its unit prior to making a buyout bid for it. Previously CNVM had asked Rompetrol Group to provide a valuation by early October.
The BET-XT index, which tracks the 25 most liquid companies on the bourse, including the SIFs, advanced 1.02% to 460.77 points. The BET-NG, which includes companies from the energy sector and utilities, was up 0.21% to 622.70 points.
Rasdaq-C, the composite index of the over-the-counter market RASDAQ, edged up 0.16% to 2,236.87. Turnover on the RASDAQ rose to 2.3 million lei from 1.6 million lei on Thursday.
