CEZ AS (CEZ), the biggest Czech utility, increased for a second day, headed for its highest in a month as speculation that the world’s policy makers will take measures to stimulate economic growth boosted demand for riskier assets.
The stock rose 1.1 percent to 741 koruna by 3:08 p.m. in Prague. A close at that level would be the highest since May 2. The PX (PX) index of 14 equities, in which CEZ has a 21 percent weighting, gained 1 percent today.
