Banks: PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BBRI IJ), the nation’s largest bank by revenue, fell 1.5 percent to 6,600 rupiah, the second-biggest drag on the composite index, after gaining 8.1 percent in the two weeks ended July 1. PT Bank Negara Indonesia (BBNI IJ), the third-largest state-owned lender which rose 7.6 percent over the same two-week period, retreated 1.9 percent to 3,800 rupiah.
The shares fell on speculation their rally was excessive, according to Nico Omer Jonckheere, vice president for research and analysis at PT Valbury Asia Securities in Jakarta. “Banks have had a good rally during the last two or three weeks,” said Jonckheere. “If people take some profit that’s normal.”
