COLOMBO, April 30 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares ended a four-session gaining streak on Tuesday as retail investors booked profits, but continued buying in blue chips by foreign investors supported.

The main stock index ended down 0.24 percent, or 14.43 points, at 5,953.19, retreating from a seven-month closing high in the previous session.

Shares have been rising on hopes of a fall in interest rates after Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundera and the central bank said official interest rates could ease in May and June.

The market has risen 3.3 percent through Monday since the treasury secretary's comments on official interest rates on April 9.

'We saw some profit-taking on retail counters at the end of the month, which brought the market down,' said a stock broker.

The turnover was 875.97 million rupees ($6.91 million), lower than this year's daily average of 965 million rupees.

Foreign investors were net buyers of 85.8 million rupees of shares, extending the net foreign inflow so far this year to 8.78 billion rupees ($69.27 million). Last year, the bourse saw a net inflow of $303 million.

The rupee ended a tad firmer at 126.70/75 per dollar from Monday's close of 126.65/85 on exporter dollar sales, currency dealers said. ($1 = 126.7500 Sri Lanka rupees)

Apr 30, 2013 (LBT) - ASPI stepped into the red territory: The benchmark index fluctuated between marginal gains and losses as it touched 5,979.27 points (+11 points) during early trading hours led by gains in key dividend players of the bourse. However the uptrend was not sustained as the index dipped 14 points at its close denoting losses in Ceylon Tobacco Company (-1.0%), Commercial Leasing & Finance (-4.0%) and Nation Lanka Finance (-1.0%) outweighing gains in Chevron Lubricants (+4.1%), Lanka IOC (+8.5%) and Dialog Axiata (+1.1%). The S&P SL20 index ended trading with a marginal gain carrying its YTD gain to 9.1%.

Colombo Land & Development topped the turnover: A counter which witnessed considerable gains during the recent rally, Colombo Land & Development spearheaded the turnover supported by 3 off-board blocks accumulating to c.3 mn shares at a 52-week high (off-board) price of LKR56.0. On-board activity in the counter depicted some selling pressure as it dipped 4.4% to LKR50.4 at its close. Tokyo Cement and Commercial Bank registered one crossing each at LKR24.0 and LKR114.5 respectively. The latter witnessed strong on-board interest with 2 large blocks which were transacted at a similar price.

BFI sector added 32% to the turnover; several counters at 52-week high levels: Banking sector interest was largely driven by Commercial Bank (+0.3%) and National Development Bank (-0.2%). Both Seylan Bank Voting and Non-Voting gained focus as each traded at 52-week high prices of LKR70.0 and LKR38.2. John Keells Holdings recorded a peak of LKR250.0 backed by strong on-board activity today while key dividend players of the bourse; Nestle Lanka and Chevron Lubricants touched new 52-week levels of LKR1,820.0 and LKR250.0 respectively. Lanka IOC was among the 52-week high list trading at LKR25.2. Retailers continued on an active streak: Strong retail activity surrounded SMB Leasing, Touchwood Investments, Colombo Land & Development and Central Investments & Finance.
