Clearly there was major interest in the company…
And, considering that volume trade in the company is 30% higher since July than it has been for the past year you'd be right to guess there's so... ››› Read more

The JSE has remained buoyant after falling due to the ANC's EWC announcement last week. It's been range bound since breaking above its previous consolidation phase.
