Thursday 30 June - The Australian market started the day strong on the back of both an optimistic outlook on the economic impact of 'Brexit' and solid gains made on global equity markets overnight. Local shares hovered well above the flat-line throughout the day, with major blue-chip stocks leading the rally. All the sectors posted positive results, with health care rising most significantly. The Australian dollar depreciated against most major currencies.

The All Ordinaries gained 89.40 points (1.71%) to 5,310.40 while the S&P/ASX 200 soared 91.00 points (1.77%) to 5,233.40.

Qantas Airways (QAN)

Qantas Airways advised that its capacity increased by 3.4% and it demand increased by 4.2% in May 2016, resulting in a revenue seat factor of 76.3% which was 0.6% higher than in the pcp. The Company's Revenue per Available Seat Kilometre (RASK) declined in May 2016, with an increase in Group Domestic RASK offset by a decline in Group International RASK. Its Domestic capacity in the month was 4.2% lower than in May 2015, reflecting capacity reductions announced in April 2016. As a result of these targeted capacity reductions, Group Domestic RASK recovered from the negative trends of March 2016 and April 2016 to be positive in the month of May 2016. The positive Group Domestic RASK performance continued through the month of June 2016. QAN lifted 5 cents (1.81%) to $2.82.

Rio Tinto (RIO)

Rio Tinto advised that it has transferred its 53.8% shareholding in Bougainville Copper Limited (BCL) to an independent trustee. Equity Trustees will manage the distribution of these shares between the Autonomous Bougainville Government (ABG) for the benefit of all the Panguna landowners and the people of Bougainville, and the Independent State of PNG. Under the trust deed, the ABG has the opportunity to receive 68% of the Company's shareholding which equates to 36.4% of BCL's shares from the independent trustee for no consideration and PNG is entitled to the remaining 32% which equates to 17.4% of BCL's shares. The ABG and PNG will both hold an equal share in BCL of 36.4% if the transfers are completed. RIO added 67 cents (1.49%) to $45.50.

The NZX climbed 93.32 points (1.37%) to 6,897.53 while the Nikkei gained 9.09 points (0.06%) at the time of writing to be last quoted at 15,575.92.
