Thailand Stocks: Berli Jucker, Chumporn Palm, United Palm Oil

March 17 (Bloomberg) -- Shares of the following companies had unusual moves in Thailand trading. Stock symbols are in parentheses and prices are as of the 4:30 p.m. close in Bangkok.

The SET Index fell 5.78, or 0.6 percent, to 1,002.35.

Palm oil producers: United Palm Oil Industry Pcl (UPOIC TB), Thailand’s largest listed producer of the edible oil, declined 3 percent to 6.4 baht, the lowest close since Oct. 20. Chumporn Palm Oil Industry Pcl (CPI TB) lost 1.5 percent to 4.02 baht.

Palm oil futures in Malaysia declined for a second day on concern increasing global supply will weaken prices and as equities and commodities declined on concern Japan nuclear crisis may cripple its economy.

Berli Jucker Pcl (BJC TB), a Thai producer of consumer goods, gained 3.5 percent to 17.7 baht, the biggest increase since Feb. 23. The company expects profit in 2011 to rise by 15 percent on new products, the Krungthep Turakij newspaper reported, citing President Aswin Techajareonvikul. The company plans to spend 2.4 billion baht ($79 million) to expand its plants, the newspaper said. Aswin was not available for comment after a call to his office.
