Cairo - Arabstoday

Egypt\'s exchange saw a slight rebound on Thursday, its first climb in five trading sessions after the weekend\'s controversial trial verdict for ex-president Hosni Mubarak which once again drove protesters to Cairo\'s Tahrir Square. The benchmark EGX30 rose by 0.1 per cent to reach 4.489.55 points -- a performance which one capital market expect called a \"feeble reply\" to Wednesday\'s speech by Egypt\'s interim Prime Minister Kamal El-Ganzouri. \"Ganzouri\'s speech included several positive indicators but they did not have a strong impact on the market\'s performance,\" market-watcher Mostafa Badra told Ahram Online. During Wednesday\'s news conference, Ganzouri vowed the mid-June presidential runoff will be free of fraud, \"just like the first round\", and stressed the interim government does not have a favoured candidate. The premier also announced a drop in Egypt\'s external debt, down to $33.2 billion, and confirmed the central bank\'s announcement that the country\'s foreign currency reserves rose by $302 million in May, making the total to $15.5 billion. The market saw another day of diminished trade on Thursday, worth just LE124.3 million, in a vivid reflection of the limited appetites of investors. From the 163 stocks traded in the session, 108 gained in value and 40 saw losses -- a performance that prompted a rise of 0.7 per cent for the broader EGX70 index. Orascom Telecom and Orascom Construction Industries were prominent high-cap gainers, edging up 0.6 and 0.7 per cent respectively. The region\'s major investment bank EFG-Hermes declined 0.8 per cent and saw the day\'s heaviest trade as it continued to feel the effects of a bidding war between investment groups. \"Hermes is swinging between Planet IB [a private consortium] and QInvest [a Qatar investment ban] and investors are the prey,\" Badra said. Shares in the Commercial International Bank dipped 0.6 per cent, reflecting the overall selling trend among foreign investors. Foreigners were the day\'s net-seller, offloading LE5.5 million in stock. Egyptians were net-buyers to the tune of LE7 million. \"We have a new massive protest on Friday which makes foreigner investors feel uncertainty,\" Badra added. Property shares had a mixed performance, with the Talaat Mostafa Group slipping 0.7 per cent in value, and Palm Hills edging up 0.6 per cent.
