Kingston Wharves pushes JSE to new record.

Kingston Wharves jumped $5 to a record close at $50 on Friday.

Kingston Wharves jumped $5 and ended at a record high of $50 on modest volume and helped to push the market to new highs on Friday. On Tuesday, the price jumped $5, to the then new high of $45.
Scarcity seems the main factor behind the sharp rally in so short a time frame with 94 percent of the 1.347 billion shares held by the top 10 shareholders. Kingston Wharves close trading with the bid to buy 1,400 units at $50 and no stock being offered. This stock is ideal for a split with more than the relatively high price and limited supply.
