Bourse crosses 6,500, but closes marginally below

CSE Diary for 23.05.2013


ASPI highest since 13th Oct 2011: The bourse renewed its previous high for the year as it surged passed the 6500 psychological barrier towards midday but could not sustain the momentum as it dipped to close with a gain of 27 points at 6488 the highest closing point for the year and highest since 13th Oct 2011. The shortened trading session resulted in lower turnover and activity while Ceylon Tobacco was identified the only major contributor to the index. UML leads turnover with single crossing: United Motors recorded the sole crossing for the day of 1.5mn shares at LKR115.0 (52-wek high off-board price) taking it to the No.1 spot of the top turnover list while its on-board activity was limited. Interest in Overseas Reality further improved as the counter reached a 52-week high price of LKR20.0 while closing slightly below at LKR19.8. Buying sustained in Chevron Lubricants, Laugfs Gas [Voting] and [NonVoting] while the former reached a highest ever price of LKR310 while recording a mid-sized block of 57k.

Heavy interest in selected beverage sector counters: Strong interest that prevailed in the past few days in the beverage sector counters Distilleries and Ceylon Tobacco prevailed today as well as both counters reached their highest ever closing prices of LKR199.9 and LKR951.5. The former registered a 100k block at LKR200.0 as both counters gained 1.9% and 4.6% respectively. Short day brings down retail interest: Retail interest continued to remain low in line with the turnover levels, however considerable retail interest was noted in Overseas Reality, Laugfs Gas and Vallibel One.

Sri Lanka to re-start refinery on May 24th: Sri Lanka will re-start its 50,000 barrels per day refinery on May 24, after getting a stock of Omani light crude, petroleum minister Anura Yapa said. The refinery has been hit by US sanctions prevented Sri Lanka from importing light crude oil from Iran. The refinery has been built and fine-tuned to operate on Iranian light and Sri Lanka was struggling to find suitable feedstock for the refinery. "We are testing many types of crude," Yapa told reporters Wednesday. "But an Omani blend was the best we could find. But the yield (of light distillates) is still low compared to Iranian light," he said. He said officials were now testing Nigerian and other crudes to find if they could be used. The refinery was closed earlier this month after a stock of crude was delayed. Yapa said the shipper had said they were having engine troubled and could not deliver the stock in time. Yapa also emphasised that since the Sapugaskanda oil refinery had limited capacity of 50,000 barrels, it needed an upgrade. Yet he also backed plans by the Government to build a new refinery, saying both measures were needed to meet demand. Moving on to speculation that the Government would buy back the Trincomalee tank farm from IOC, Yapa stressed that there were no such moves but that they would work with IOC to ensure optimum use would be made of the facility.

IMF: UK 'long way from recovery': The UK economy is still a long way from "a strong and sustainable recovery", the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned. In its concluding statement on its mission to the UK, the IMF said austerity measures were acting as a drag on the economy. The government could do more to offset the negative impact of austerity with infrastructure spending, it said. George Osborne said the UK would not "duck its economic challenges". The IMF acknowledged that the UK's austerity programme had earned the government international credibility. But speaking at a press conference in London, its deputy managing director, David Lipton, said the view of the IMF was that the UK should consider slowing Softlogic Equity Research Page | 6

the pace of cuts. "It would be, in our view, useful for the economy for infrastructure and other measures to be brought forward to reduce the drag of austerity measures and provide more support for the economy," he said. [Source: www.bbc.co.uk] Singapores Expansion Reduces Pressure to Ease Policy: Singapores economy unexpectedly expanded last quarter as services and construction strengthened, reducing pressure on the central bank to ease monetary policy to boost growth. Gross Domestic Product rose an annualized 1.8% in the three months through March from the previous quarter, when it grew 3.3%, the Trade Ministry said in a statement today, revising an earlier estimate for a 1.4% contraction last quarter. The median in a Bloomberg News survey was for a 1.2% decline. Theres very little slack in most Asian economies so as the recovery starts to take hold during the second half of the year, this slack would very quickly evaporate and that would begin to build up underlying inflation pressures, said Leif Eskesen, chief economist for India and Southeast Asia at HSBC Holdings Plc in Singapore. We do expect some central bank action on that front. [Source: www.bloomberg.com]
