Kyiv trading last week saw a mixed performance of the major listed stocks. The government’s decision to tighten quarantine measures - but only on weekends - in the country had a neutral impact on the local market players. Meanwhile, President Zelenskiy and the head of his administration Andriy Yermak are both being treated for COVID themselves.
The UX index declined by 0.3% to 1375 points. CentrEnergo (CEEN) took the most points from the gauge, dropping by 4.2% to UAH 5.65.

On the Warsaw Stock Exchange, top liquid name Kernel (KER) advanced by 4.2% to PLN 41.00 after the company proposed to increase its annual dividend from 25 US cents per share to 42 US cents per share. The shareholders meeting on the issue will be held on Dec 10. Sugar producer Astarta (AST) gained another 4.3% to PLN 24.30 on top of its surge of 28% over preceding week. The stock received a boost from the company’s 3Q20 financial report; Astarta’s EBITDA was EUR 15mn in the period, bringing 9M20 EBITDA to EUR 82mn (+53% YoY).
