The PSI 20 closed this Tuesday low and did not keep up with the trend of gains registered among the main European markets.
The Stoxx 600 pan-European index rose 0,65%, reflecting the positive performance of the London, Madrid, Milan, Paris and Frankfurt stock exchanges, with gains between 0,18% and 1,89%.
Here, the main national stock index fell 0,37%, to 4.587,61 points, penalized by the devaluations of the shares of the EDP Group and also of Mota Engil, which led the losses, and Jerónimo Martins.
EDP shares fell 1,25%, to 4,41 euros, and EDP Renováveis lost 2,14%, to 17,38 euros, testifying to the market reaction to the departure of António Mexia and João Manso Neto leadership of the two companies for the next term following the excessive rents process. The two CEOs have been suspended from their duties since July.
Mota Engil, which last week confirmed the presence of the Chinese CCC in its share capital, and which benefited greatly from this announcement in the stock market, this week went into correction. On Monday it lost a large part of the appreciation recorded last week and, this Tuesday, it lost 3,98%, ending the trading at 1,398 euros per share.
In retail, Jerónimo Martins sank 2,05%, to 14,06 euros. In contrast, Sonae, owner of Continente, advanced 1,71%, to 0,6850 euros per share.
The gains were led by CTT, which rose 3,28% to 2,52 euros. Also noteworthy was the increase of Altri, 4,04%, and BCP, which advanced 0,42%.
In raw materials, the barrel of Brent loses 0,67%, to $ 47,56 and, in the United States, WTI yields 1,28% to $ 44,76.
