June 18 (Bloomberg) -- Shares of the following companies had unusual moves in Philippine trading. Stock symbols are in parentheses and prices are at the close in Manila.

The Philippine Stock Exchange Index rose 2.4 percent to 5,050.41, the biggest gain since May 17.

Metals producers: Semirara Mining Corp. (SCC PM), the largest coal producer in the Philippines, jumped 8 percent to 216 pesos, the biggest gain since October 2010. Philex Mining Corp. (PX PM) rallied 5.3 percent to 23.70 pesos, the biggest advance since April 26.
