The Jakarta Composite index rose 0.6 percent to 3,964.98, gaining for a second day.
PT Adaro Energy (ADRO) , Indonesia’s second-biggest coal producer, climbed 2.2 percent to 1,870 rupiah, the highest close since Dec. 13. The company’s 2011 coal output rose 13 percent from a year earlier to 47.7 million metric tons, Adaro said in an e-mailed statement.
PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGAS) , Indonesia’s largest gas distributor, fell 1.5 percent to 3,325 rupiah, the lowest close since Jan. 18. The company’s net income fell last year to about 6 trillion rupiah ($665 million) from 6.24 trillion rupiah in 2010 because of foreign-exchange losses and a drop in gas sales volume, Kontan reported, citing Heri Yusup, corporate secretary at the company. Yusup couldn’t be reached when called at his office.
PT Hexindo Adiperkasa (HEXA) , the Indonesian unit of Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., rose 1.6 percent to 9,750 rupiah, a record close, after reporting net income in the third quarter ending Dec. 31 jumped 60 percent from a year earlier to $48.2 million.
