The following shares were active on the Egyptian Exchange. Stock symbols follow company names.

EFG-Hermes Holding SAE (HRHO EY) dropped 1.8 percent, the most in more than a week, to 10.68 Egyptian pounds. The largest publicly traded Arab investment bank had a first-quarter profit of 35 million Egyptian pounds ($5.8 million) compared with 37 million pounds a year earlier.

Pioneers Holding (PIOH EY), the investment bank, fell to the lowest level in in more than six weeks, losing 5.1 percent to 3.52 pounds.
