Unipetrol AS (UNIP) jumped the most in more than four months after Czech Industry and Trade Minister Martin Kuba said in a Lidove Noviny interview the government may buy a stake in the oil refiner’s Ceska Rafinerska unit.
The stock climbed 2.4 percent, the steepest increase since March 1, to 174.50 koruna, making it the second-best performer today in the PX (PX) equity index, which dropped 1.9 percent. More than 218,000 Unipetrol shares have changed hands so far today, more than four times the daily average in the past three months.
