  • On the bond market, the Rizzo Farrugia MGS Index edged slightly higher as long-term Malta Government Stock prices rose reflecting the movement in Eurozone yields which remained below the 1.55% level.  
  • Following last Friday’s 1.2% increase, the equity of Malta International Airport plc edged 0.5% higher at the start of the week closing at a new all-time high of €2.05. The share price had reached that level during the session of 22 May but had closed lower since. The upturn in MIA’s equity reflects the record passenger traffic passing through the terminal with an increase of 9% during the first five months of the year.

  • RS2 Software plc eased minimally lower from last Friday’s record close of €1.275. The equity shed 0.4% to €1.27 on weak volumes following the strong upturn last week in response to the news revealed at the Annual General Meeting that the investor interested in acquiring not less than 10% of the Company’s outstanding shares, is a large bank based in the UK.
