Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Shares of the following companies had unusual moves in Indonesian trading. Stock symbols are in parentheses and prices are as of the 4 p.m. Jakarta-time close.

The Jakarta Composite index slipped 2.64 points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,844.38, declining for a second day.

PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BBRI IJ), the nation’s largest lender by revenue, rose 1.6 percent to 6,500 rupiah, the biggest boost to the Jakarta Finance Index. Bank Rakyat may record loan growth of as much as 20 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier, supported by consumer and microfinance lending, Finance Director Achmad Baiquni said.

PT Bisi International (BISI IJ), a corn and rice-seed producer, added 1.7 percent to 1,230 rupiah. The company has agreed to buy a 46 percent stake in seed-trading company PT Tanindo Subur Prima from Chia Tai Co. for $6.3 million, according to a statement published in Investor Daily.

PT Multistrada Arah Sarana (MASA IJ), a tire producer, fell 1.8 percent to 540 rupiah. Bisnis Indonesia reported two controlling shareholders canceled a plan to sell a 40 percent stake in the company because the offer price didn’t match their valuation of the shares. Multistrada Director Yohanes Ade Bunian Moniaga couldn’t be reached when called at his office.

PT Timah (TINS IJ) gained 3.5 percent to 2,250 rupiah. Indonesia’s biggest tin producer said first-half net income more than doubled from a year earlier to 689 billion rupiah ($80 million). Global refined tin consumption will rise 2 percent this year from 2010, the company also said.
