With strong buying interest in the previous week the index gained over 200 points resulting in the current profit taking. 72 counters gained for the day compared to 143 that dipped. Ceylinco Insurance, Cargills, Richard Peiris & Company and Commercial Bank were heavy weights leading the decline of the index.

John Keells Holdings leads the turnover list: John Keells Holdings was identified as the top performer for the day amidst healthy buying interest taking counter passed the previous 52-week high to LKR274.0 while settling at LKR273.0 at end of day. One large on-board block was noted in the counter of 157k shares dealt at LKR273.0. With the announcement of earnings and dividends, investor interest surrounded Piramal Glass, the coloured glass bottle manufacturer, touched a 52-week high of LKR6.9 today and closed at LKR6.8 with a gain of 3.0%.

Some selling pressure on banking sector counters: Banking sector continued to remain heavily active with National Development Bank, Nations Trust Bank, Sampath Bank, Union Bank and Commercial Bank leading the turnover. Profit taking following last week’s run led most counters to end on a negative note.Retailers remain silent: With the index adopting a down trend today, activity of the retail investor segment saw a drastic decline with most investors of the segment remaining on the sidelines adopting a wait and see approach.

COLOMBO, May 14 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares slipped further on Tuesday from last week's 1-1/2 year high as retail investors sold some shares, while the rupee currency weakened on demand for dollars from importers.

The main stock index fell 0.52 percent, or 32.44 points, to 6,206.59, its second day of losses after hitting a peak on Friday.

'The bourse came off on profit-taking in retail-dominated mid-cap shares,' a stockbroker said on condition of anonymity.

Sri Lankan markets have shown little reaction to Friday's 50 basis point cut in the central bank's key policy rate, which had been expected since Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundera said on April 9 that interest rates could ease in May or June.

Market turnover was 636.18 million rupees ($5.04 million) on Tuesday, below this year's daily average of 1.02 billion rupees. Foreign investors bought a net 154.3 million rupees of shares, extending net foreign inflows this year to 9.91 billion rupees.

The rupee fell to 126.50/55 from Monday's close of 126.25/30 as importers bought dollars, currency dealers said.

($1 = 126.2500 Sri Lanka rupees)

The Colombo bourse could not sustain its winning streak yesterday suffering fairly sharp drops in both indices although the market was trading mostly flat most of the trading day, brokers said.

The All Share Price Index lost 32.44 points (0.52%) while the S&P SL20 was down 18.35 points (0.52%) on a turnover of Rs.636.6 million, up from the previous day’s Rs.535 million, with 107 losers ahead of 91 gainers while 37 counters closed flat.

"The market was virtually flat or only slightly down most of the day but lost ground close to end of trading," a broker said. ``There may have been an attempt by some investors to hold up the indices."

He said that blue chips held their ground with JKH gaining Rs.2.10 up at Rs.272 on 92,792 shares done between Rs.270.50 and Rs.274 contributing a turnover of Rs.25.2 million.

NDB also closed up gaining 60 cents to close at Rs.179.50 on over 0.3 million shares done between Rs.178 and Rs.180 generating the day’s top turnover of Rs.58.1 million.

There was unconfirmed speculation in the market of a development in the Nations Trust Bank which closed flat yesterday at Rs.65 on over 0.1 million shares traded with retailers active in the stock.

Retailers were also active in Sampath which closed Rs.1.10 up at Rs.229 on 91,160 shares contributing Rs.20.9 million to turnover.

Piramal Glass saw 3.8 million shares traded closing 20 cents up at Rs.6.80 while Union Bank closed 20 cents up at Rs.20.90 on nearly 0.8 million shares traded.

"Declines outweighed advances by almost 2:1 as further selling pressure during the latter hours of trading pushed the ASPI lower for a second consecutive day. Activity levels improved moderately from yesterday and continued to be dominated by trades on banking and diversified counters," John Keells Stock Brokers said in a market report.

Foreign activity was relatively subdued with Rs. 183.9 million purchases and Rs. 29.6 million sales with an inflow of Rs. 154.3 mn.

Hayleys closed at Rs.300.10 on 50,190 shares done between Rs.300 and Rs.301 generating a turnover of Rs.20.8 million.
