March 8 (Bloomberg) -- Mirgor SACIFIA, an Argentine producer of vehicle air-conditioning systems, rose to a record after reporting an 85 percent increase in net income.
Mirgor advanced 5.3 percent to 108.95 pesos at the close in Buenos Aires, a record price. Volume was more than five times the average of the past three months.
Mirgor reported yesterday profit of 150 million pesos ($29.6 million) in 2012. That compares with 81.2 million pesos in the prior year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
“The results were really good,” Adrian Mayoral, a trader and analyst at Buenos Aires-based brokerage Mayoral Bursatil, said in an interview. “It isn’t a very liquid stock so that explains the jump today.”
Mirgor’s shares have gained 52 percent in 2013, compared to a 17 percent increase for the benchmark Merval index.
