INSURANCE MfLESTONE j j SHARES SOAR TO NEW MJVELS ■ i 1 A milestone was reached on the Aucfc- >■ land Stock Exchange to-day when shares of the leading New Zealand insurance i companies rose to new peaks—New Zealand Insurance to £5 and South British to £4 10/. On the £1 New Zealand Insur- j ance shares, which pay 12J per cent, the return to the purchaser is now reduced to £2 10/. while the yield on the 10/ South British shares, paying 20 per cent, , is down to £2 4/5. Since the beginning of the vear shareholders of the New Zea- . t land company have had £825,000 added j to the value of their holdings and those of the South British, £644,775. The investment market generally to-day ! was very firm and fairly active. Prices were mostly steady. In the gilt-edged section sellers of low-interest stocks were more numerous, but were loath to accept current prices. SALES COMPLETED
