ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka stocks closed 0.37 higher Tuesday on buying interest in John Keells Holdings, Ceylon Tobacco and banking stocks, while the rupee ended marginally weaker against the US dollar and gilt yields picked up slightly, market participants said.

Market turnover was 1.6 billion rupees, as 68 stocks gained during the day, against the 62 that declined.

John Keells Holdings (up 3 rupees to 129 rupees), Ceylon Tobacco (up 12.70 rupees to 1,385.50 rupees) and Hatton Nation Bank (up 5.10 rupees to 205.20 rupees) contributed to the benchmark index gain.

Sunshine Holdings closed 9 rupees higher at 55 rupees and Sampath Bank was up 3.20 rupees to 222.10 rupees.

Net foreign selling was 499.95 million rupees, down from 1.7 billion rupees the previous day.

Net foreign selling at John Keells Holdings was 487 million rupees, Asia Securities said.

Crossings, or off-market negotiated trades, totalled 1.2 billion rupees and accounted for 74.7 percent of turnover.

There were 12 crossings in John Keells Holdings for 1.1 billion rupees, three at Amana Takaful for 60.9 million rupees, one at Dialog for 24.6 million rupees and one at Access Engineering for 26.2 million rupees.
