July 19, 2013 (LBT) - JKH dictating the market direction: The Colombo bourse reversed its usual course and denoted notable gains holding its nerves near the important 6,000 levels. ASPI ended at 6,041.06 with a gain of 56 points.

Both indices up on Rs. 719 mn. turnover

The Colombo bourse yesterday cleared the 6,000 point resistance barrier on the All Share Price Index after going below the hurdle earlier in the week with the ASPI up 55.61 points (0.93%) and S&P SL20 up 30.3 points (0.93%) on a turnover of Rs.719.1 million, up from the previous day’s Rs.665.2 million, with 163 gainers way ahead of 47 losers while 103 counters closed flat.

"JKH provided the upward movement with some block trades at Rs.260 with over 0.9 million shares crossed at this price to generate a turnover of Rs.244.9 million," a broker said. "There were also floor trades in the counter, a lot of them at the Rs.260 price."

Foreigners were net sellers yesterday with an outflow of Rs. 184 million on purchases of Rs. 40.4 million and sales of Rs. 224.4 mn.

"The ASPI ended sharply higher amid gains across the board, including healthy gains in large cap diversified and banking counters. Trades on JKH accounted for over 40% of market turnover, inclusive of crossings. The market also saw block trades on CINS and SAMP," John Keells Stock Brokers said in a market report.Other than JKH, over 0.2 million Sampath was crossed at Rs.197 in a deal worth Rs.47.1 million and 31,262 Ceylinco Insurance crossed at Rs.1,150 contributing Rs.36 million to the day’s business volumes. Block trades accounted for Rs.328 million of yesterday’s turnover.

JKH closed Rs.10.40 up at Rs.260.10 on the floor with 0.3 million shares traded between Rs.250 and Rs.261 with at least a third of this done at the Rs.260 price at which the blocks were crossed. The counter contributed Rs.78.7 million to turnover on the floor trades.

An unusual quantity of over 0.9 million Sinhaputhra was done yesterday closing Rs.9.70 up at Rs.80 and contributing Rs.74.9 million to turnover. Brokers said some large parcels were among the floor trades done between Rs.80 and Rs.84.50 contributing Rs.74.9 million to turnover.

Next on the turnover league was Sampath which closed Rs.1.80 up at Rs.187 on 0.3 million shares done between Rs.195 and Rs.197.50 generating a turnover of Rs.59.1 million.

Vallibel One which announced an interim dividend of 70 cents per share for 2013/14 saw a million shares done yesterday closing flat at Rs.17.90.

Other counters that demonstrated price gain and some volume included Commercial Bank (voting) closing one rupee up at Rs.117 on over 0.1 million shares, Ceylon Tobacco gaining a rupee to close at Rs.1,000 on 8,683 shares and 45,513 Commercial Bank (non-voting) up Rs.4 to close at Rs.97.
