August 11 (SeeNews) - The four main Bulgarian stock indices closed evenly split on Friday, as the SOFIX only just scraped into green territory inching up 0.01% to 706.53 points, bourse data showed.
Diversified group Chimimport [BUL:CHIM] was the main blue-chip gainer, rising 2.54% to 0.728 levs. The SOFIX performance was further buoyed by a 1.10% climb in bourse operator Bulgarian Stock Exchange [BUL:BSE] to 9.20 levs.
The top blue-chip loser was fertiliser maker Neochim [BUL:NEOH], which slipped 0.33% to 30.60 lev.
Chimimport's gain and rises in Sofia Commerce Pawn Brokerage [BUL:SCOM] and Telelink Business Services Group [BUL:TBS] could not offset losses of 5.93% in Zarneni Hrani Bulgaria [BUL:ZHBG] to 0.127 levs and of 4.73% in Telematic Interactive Bulgaria [BUL:TIB] to 14.10 levs. Additionally, First Investment Bank, or Fibank, [BUL:FIB] dropped 4.46% to 2.14 levs. This all made for a 0.01% decrease in the wider BGBX40 index, which tracks the 40 most traded shares, to 151.83 points.
The BGTR30, in which companies with a free float of at least 10% have equal weight, was also in decline by 0.01%, to 774.58 points.
The BGREIT, which measures the performance of seven real estate investment trusts, was the index to rise the most on Friday, 0.19% to 189.91 points, on the back of a 0.92% gain in Bulgarian Real Estate Fund [BUL:BREF] to 2.20 levs.
Total turnover on the main market of the Sofia bourse slumped to 264,149 levs ($148,300/135,057euro) on Friday from some 19.3 million levs on Thursday.
