The flow of first-quarter corporate results from companies listed on the Greek stock market boosted the benchmark at Athinon Avenue on Thursday, sending it fairly close to the 900-point mark on improved turnover too. With rising stocks outnumbering losers at a three-to-one ratio, the price growth is expected to continue given that positive news is anticipated from the Q1 reports.
