September 7 (SeeNews) - The four indices of the Bulgarian Stock Exchange (BSE) all extended Monday's losses after the Tuesday public holiday, with the blue-chip SOFIX retreating 0.35% to 607.46 points, bourse data showed.
The weak performance of the SOFIX came as a result of a 5.88% decline in Central Cooperative Bank [BUL:CCB] to 1.60 levs coupled with a 5% drop in Industrial Holding Bulgaria [BUL:IHB] to 1.90 levs with 71,100 shares traded.
Sopharma Trading [BUL:SFT] was the biggest gainer among the blue-chips, rising 6.87% to 5.60 levs in a trading volume of 31,646.
Stara Planina Hold and CCB also dragged down the wider BGBX40 index , which lost the most on Wednesday, 1.01% to 140.19 points, further pressured by a 5.56% dip in poultry producer Gradus [BUL:GR6].
The retreat in the three companies also contributed to the BGTR30 index, in which companies with a free float of at least 10% have equal weight, declining 0.76% lower at 731.95 points.
The BGREIT, which tracks seven real estate investment trusts, ticked down 0.17% to 182.45 points, as Bulgarian Real Estate Fund REIT depreciated 0.86% to 2.30 levs.
The most liquid stock on Wednesday was drug maker Sopharma [BUL:SFA], which generated about two-thirds of the turnover, with as many as 466,750 shares bought and sold at an average price of 4.53 levs.
Total turnover on the main market of the BSE rose to 3.07 million levs ($1.6 million/1.6 million euro) from some 1.15 million levs on Monday.
