April 24, 2012

The Czech Republic’s PX (PX) stock index jumped the most in two weeks, rising 1.2 percent to 922.10 at the close in Prague, rebounding from a three-month low.

The following were among the most active equities on the Prague Stock Exchange today. Stock symbols follow company names.

CEZ AS (CEZ) , the biggest Czech power utility, gained 1.7 percent to 772 koruna, its biggest advance in a week. New World Resources Plc (NWR) , the biggest coking-coal producer, rebounded from the lowest in almost three years, rising 2.5 percent to 124.5 koruna.

Global stocks rallied on better-than-estimated earnings and data indicating that the American housing market is stabilizing.

Komercni Banka AS (KOMB) , a unit of Societe Generale SA, added 1.1 percent to 3,350 koruna. It fell 3.1 percent yesterday to a more than three-month low, driving its 14-day relative strength index to 25. Readings below 30 suggest to technical analysis a security may gain.
