COLOMBO, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks jumped 2 percent on Friday to hit their three-week high and snapping a three-session losing streak as foreign investors bought select shares like conglomerate John Keells Holdings, dealers said.

The main share index rose 1.99 percent, or 113.36 points, to close at 5,814.10, its highest close since Aug. 30.

Foreign investors were net buyers of 128.7 million rupees ($972,800) worth of shares on Friday, extending net foreign inflows in equities this year to 19.12 billion rupees.

'Most of the foreign funds will again look at emerging markets after Fed's surprise move,' said a stock broker.

The U.S. Federal Reserve's unexpected decision not to taper its monetary stimulus for now sparked short-covering across Southeast Asian exchanges on Thursday.

Shares in John Keells Holdings rose 2.78 percent to 217.90 rupees.

Friday's turnover was 849.7 million rupees, nearly in line with this year's daily average of about 881.7 million rupees.

($1 = 132.3000 Sri Lanka rupees)

“Indices depicted a strong positive trend following the positive sentiment stemming from the US Federal Reserve’s decision to keep its stimulus intact,” Softlogic Stockbrokers said.

“Colombo shares regained lost ground and posted notable gains on Friday as investors welcomed the Fed’s surprise decision to keep its vast stimulus policy unchanged. The decision to maintain US stimulus policy was a great relief to the frontier markets such as Sri Lanka, which was suffering from fears of capital flight back to the developed world,” Lanka Securities added.

Softlogic said blue chips led the gains. John Keells Holdings (+2.78%), Carson Cumberbatch (+5.54%), Ceylon Tobacco Company (+1.9%), Asian Hotels & Properties (+10.33%) and Distilleries (+4.49%).

JKH highlighted the crossings board with five blocks which totalled 1.19 million shares transacted at Rs. 215 each. Aitken Spence recorded a crossing of 300,000 shares at a 52-week low (off-board) price of Rs. 113.3. The former touched Rs. 218.0 at its intra-day high before closing with a gain of 2.8% while the latter closed up marginally at Rs. 113.5.

“Blue chips stepped centre stage and dominated the top turnover slot denoting notable buying interest,” Softlogic said.

Renewed interest was observed in Carson Cumberbatch supported by two on board blocks accumulating to 249,000 shares at Rs. 400 each. Commercial Bank also gathered some interest where mid-sized blocks traded at a price range of Rs. 113-114.90 and closed at Rs. 114.90.

Distilleries too displayed noteworthy on-board turnover dominated by three transactions totalling 190,000 shares at a prices between Rs. 180-183. Hatton National Bank also saw active on-board participation largely backed by a large block of 124,000 shares at Rs. 151.

Retail participation improved amidst the positive sentiment in the bourse. Majority of interest surrounded Blue Diamonds, Nation Lanka Finance, Touchwood Investments, HVA Foods and Textured Jersey Lanka. The latter gained 5.9% at its intra-day high of Rs. 14.3 before settling at Rs. 14.20.
