Market closed marginally lower on Monday although premier blue chip John Keells Holdings gained around 1.3%. Losses on Bukit Darah, Hatton National Bank, Commercial Bank saw the indices driven lower whilst foreign investor favourites Nestle, Chevron Lubricants and Lion Brewery gained further ground. Blue-chips continued to dominate turnover with retail activity slowing down.

On Wednesday, profit taking on many blue-chips during late trading caused the indices to lose marginally. However, yields on treasury bills fell further in today’s auction which will help to improve the condition of the stock market.

ASI dropped 6.83 points (0.12%) to close at 5,745.10 and the S&P SL20 index lost 3.10 points (0.10%) to close at 2,120.87. Turnover was Rs. 497.2Mn.

Profit taking on John Keells Holdings and Banking sector stocks sent the broader index into negative territory on Thursday but Distilleries saw continued interest from retail and as well as institutional investors.
