Nov. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The following companies had unusual price changes in Argentine trading. Stock symbols are in parentheses and share prices are as of the close in Buenos Aires. The Merval Index closed little changed at 2,426.00.

Empresa Distribuidora & Comercializadora Norte SA (EDN AF) jumped 9.2 percent to 1.55 pesos, the biggest increase in six weeks. Utility stocks are gaining on speculation that the government will free up the tariffs they are allowed to charge customers, Alberto Tarsia, a trader at Buenos Aires-based Debursa Soc. de Bolsa, said in an interview.
