Friday 27 November - Local stocks opened higher this morning, following positive leads from global equity markets. However, the local sharemarket lost its momentum after hitting an intraday high to finish slightly below the red line, with index heavyweights TLS and ANZ leading the retreat. There were mixed results from the sectors; energy gained most significantly while utilities lagged behind the rest. The Australian dollar gained against most major currencies.

The All Ordinaries slid 8.30 points (-0.16%) to 5,251.40 while the S&P/ASX 200 dropped 8.10 points (-0.16%) to 5,202.60.

Rio Tinto (RIO)

Rio Tinto announced that the Company will expand output of bauxite deposits following approval of the $1.9bn Amrun project. Amrun involves the construction of a bauxite mine and associated processing and port facilities on the Cape York Peninsula in north Queensland. The planned initial output is 22.8Mt a year, replacing production from the depleting East Weipa mine and increasing annual bauxite exports from Cape York by around 10Mt. Production and shipping are expected to commence in the first half of 2019, ramping up to full production by the end of the year. RIO lost 26 cents (-0.56%) to $46.23.

Qantas Airways (QAN)

Qantas Airways announced that the Group capacity increased by 3.2% and the Group demand increased by 4.8%, resulting in a Group revenue seat factor of 81.4% which was 1.3% points higher than the previous October 2014. Group Domestic capacity in the month was 2.5% lower compared to the pcp, with growth on East Coast routes offset by adjustments to address resource market softness in WA and Qld. Group capacity increased by 3% and demand increased by 4.4%, resulting in a Group revenue seat factor of 81.2% which was 1.1% points higher than the 2014. The Group Revenue per Available Seat Kilometre (RASK) was higher compared to the pcp. The Group International RASK was higher compared to the pcp. QAN added 15 cents (4.13%) to $3.78.

The NZX rose 13.12 points (0.22%) to 6,101.02 while the Nikkei lost 89.51 (-0.45%) points at the time of writing to be last quoted at 19,854.90.

The Australian dollar was last quoted at 72.28 US cents.
