COLOMBO, March 14 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares edged up on Thursday on foreign buying in market heavyweight John Keells Holdings which hit a 29-month high.

The main share index ended 0.06 percent, or 3.16 points up, at 5,688.98.

John Keells Holdings gained 0.63 percent to reach 238.60 rupees.

Foreign investors were net buyers of 261.2 million rupees ($2.07 million) worth of shares, extending year-to-date foreign inflows to 3.43 billion rupees.

Turnover was 609.2 million rupees ($4.82 million), well below this year's daily average of 1.04 billion rupees.

The rupee ended firmer at 126.25/35 to the dollar from Wednesday's close of 126.50/55 due to exporter dollar conversions, dealers said. ($1 = 126.4500 Sri Lanka rupees)

Mar 14, 2013 (LBT) - Indices ended flat with marginal gains: The Colombo Stocks endured yet another ranging day with lackluster performances on benchmark index. The index witnessed a range play of 20 basis points throughout the day before closing at 5,688.98 with a marginal gain of 3 points. The gains recorded in Lanka Orix Leasing (+5.5%) and John Keells Holdings (+0.6%) and the losses denoted in Nestle Lanka (-1.4%) and Ceylon Tobacco (-0.6%) weighted heavily on the consolidation of the benchmark index. S&P SL20 index too concluded with a marginal gain of 5 points at 3,241.03.

JKH and Banking counters spearhead the daily turnover: John Keells Holdings attracted notable investor interest during trading and closed at a 52-week high of LKR.239.0 (0.8%). Furthermore the counter spearheaded the daily turnover led by four off-board parcels of 555k shares dealt at a price of LKR238.0. Sampath Bank and National Development Bank made noteworthy contributions to the daily turnover where the former recorded two off-the-floor deals of 270k shares which were transacted at LKR235.0. The latter which attracted considerable interest during the last few trading sessions reached a 52-week high and ended at LKR.158.5 (+1.3%) while recording a single crossing of 128k shares at a price of LKR.158.0.

ODEL attracted heavy investor participation: The retail fashion chain, ODEL, attracted significant investor participation during the day. Interestingly, the counter recorded four on-board transactions of 2.0mn shares traded at a price of LKR23.0 during the morning session. ODEL ended flat at LKR.23.0.
