Thu: Pharma stocks pull TASE down

Teva, Mylan and Perrigo were among the most notable decliners today. Insurance stocks were firm.

The Tel Aviv Stock Exchange fell today. The Tel Aviv 25 Index fell 0.59%, to 1,450.06 points; the Tel Aviv 100 Index fell 0.58%, to 1,269.08 points; and the BlueTech Index fell 0.46%, to 372.98 points.

Teva led trading today, and, besides being beset by its own particular woes, suffered along with the pharma sector generally from hostile remarks about the industry from US president-elect Donald Trump yesterday. Its share price fell 3.7%, while Mylan fell 7.18% and Perrigo fell 2.89%. Bank Leumi was the only stock in the top five to rise, by 1.26%. Bank Hapoalim fell 0.04% and ICL fell 0.29%.
