Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- The following companies had unusual price changes in Bogota trading. Stock symbols are in parentheses and prices are as of 4 p.m. local time.

The IGBC Index fell 0.5 percent to 13,582.29, while the Colcap Index declined 0.1 percent to 1,601.27.

Avianca Taca Holding SA (PFAVTA CB), the owner of Colombia’s largest airline, rose 0.7 percent to 3,800 pesos.
