Sokrat now one of top three stock traders

April 24, 2008

CJSC FC Sokrat, part of the Sokrat investment group, now ranks third in terms of stock trading according to March 2008 ratings of professional participants of the market, drawn up by the PFTS, a Ukrainian Stock Exchange.

The total volume of stock deals closed within the PFTS in March amounted to UAH 1.53 bln. The amount of stock deals of CJSC FC Sokrat for the same period, in which the company acted as one of the parties of the agreement, reached UAH 257 mln. The share of the company in the amount of agreements entered into by all the participants of the stock trade within the PFTS amounts to 8.41 %.

“In the first quarter of 2008, the market was rather volatile and at the same time, the offer of marketable securities exceeded the demand considerably. Despite support from domestic investors, a downward trend prevailed. We expect that by the beginning of the summer, the market situation will have stabilized. In our opinion, as of yet, the most attractive industries for investment are the power industry, metallurgy and machine building,” said Vladimir Ponomarenko, head of Sokrat’s Trading Department.

The PFTS Stock Exchange draws up monthly ratings of professional participants on the securities market for particular types of instruments (shares, bonds, etc.), as well as a cumulative rating of all the types of instruments. While drawing up a rating, the volume of deals and their quantity are taken into account, as well as the number of quotations presented by the trader in the system, the size of spreads, etc.
