This group should be distinguished primarily by an increase of 4.1 percent. Santander and nearly 4 percent. JSW’s increases. The latter company showed results clearly better than expected. Although the company had to seek help from PFR (to maintain the level of investments) and complains about coal prices, it showed strong results in the coke segment and reduced costs a bit.
On the downward side, PGNiG stood out above all (-3.1%). It was also worth paying back to another fuel company, which about 3.5 percent. Weighed down on the index during the session, but managed to close the day only at 0.5%. minus.
