November 14 (SeeNews) - Croatian share indices ended higher on Wednesday with turnover also rising, brokers said.
Turnover in shares and bonds in floor trading rose to 80.8 million kuna ($16.2 million/11 million euro) from 76.3 million kuna on Tuesday.
The 30-share Crobex index of the Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) edged up by 0.05% to 4,969.8 points.
The Croemi 20-share index of commercial bank Raiffeisenbank Austria also added 0.05% to 4,056.35. The two indices have been mostly falling since hitting their all-time highs in mid-October and following gains of more than 50% since the beginning of the year.
The narrowest CROX index of the seven most traded stocks on the ZSE, which the Vienna Stock Exchange launched this summer, gained 0.30% and ended at 2,629.35 in euro terms.
"The local benchmark ended marginally up as gains in [oil and gas company] INA and several second-liners made up for weakness in [tobacco-to-tourism conglomerate Adris," said an analyst with Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank.
Shares in index heavyweight INA gained 1.76% to close at 2.595 kuna on 1.6 million kuna turnover.
Among other blue chips, transmission equipment maker Dalekovod saw a rise of 3.10% to 1,700 kuna on 6.6. million kuna turnover.
Dalekovod stock gained on the news that it struck a 159 million kuna deal with transmission system operator HEP Operator Prijenosnog Sustava for the construction of the Croatian part of a 2x400 kilovolt transmission line, connecting Ernestinovo, in eastern Croatia, and the southern Hungarian city of Pecs.
Adris preferred shares dipped 1.92% to 500.21 kuna on some 2.0 million kuna turnover.
As has become usual, telecoms company T-HT, whose shares were floated last month, but are not included in the Crobex yet, attracted the highest daily turnover of 13.8 million kuna.
T-HT shares lost 0.41% and ended at 360.5 kuna.
Overall, 53 shares ended higher, 58 closed lower and 19 shares were unchanged.
The fixed-income Crobis index added 0.18% to 98.0860 points.
