FINANCE AND COMMERCE

SHARE MARKET REVIEW STEADY INQUIRY IN MOST SECTIONS The share market has been quiet during the week, and business has been restricted. The money volume has been well below the weekly average. However, the undertone of the market has been good, most sections meeting with a steady inquiry. The money value involved was £12,876, as against £14,353 the preceding week. The good returns being secured by the big dredges on the West Coast stimulated inquiry for this class of stocks, and they remained firm throughout the week. There was less interest shown in most Australian industrials, and prices of some of the leading stocks were easier. Since the announcement that the New Zealand Government £4,500,000 loan was fully subscribed more interest has been shown in Government stocks, and prices at the end of the week appeared slightly stronger.

No business was recorded on the local market in Insurance, Loan and Agency, Coal and Gas shares, and the turnover in Breweries shares is the smallest for a long period. Outside Christchurch, Insurances were firm at last week's levels. Coal and Gas were firm to better. The Week’s Turnover

AUCKLAND [THE PRESS Special Service.] AUCKLAND, June 2. Strong and active conditions ruled in the investment market on the Auckland Stock Exchange during the last week. Taking a lead from the buoyancy on the Australian exchanges, investors operated much more freely, with inquiries covering a still wider range. Generally, brokers experienced a very busy week, and transactions in the market were easily the highest number recorded since the beginning of the year. Advices from overseas were largely responsible for the return of confidence, which was not disturbed until the difficulty in the Russian negotiations was reported. Bank shares were moderately active, with New Zealands selling freely. Levels were steadier than those of the previous week, the market closing at 40s a loss of 3d over the period. National Bank of New Zealand firmed to 46s fid, while the Australian group showed little alteration. Insurances were very active at late rates, the turnover being the largest for some weeks. Nationals moved up to the peak price for the year at 16s 2d. Recovery by Auckland Gas was a feature of the classified section. Dealings in Australian industrials dominated the miscellaneous section, but there was also a steady turnover in leading New Zealand issues. Australian Consolidated Industries advanced to a new high level, reacting slightly at the close of the week. Other leaders of the Australian group were very firm. Among New Zealand stocks, a very firm market ruled for Bycroft rights, Farmers’ Fertilisers, and Wilson’s Cement. Mining business was better. Waihi investments attracted more attention, and several parcels changed hands at 7s 4d and 7s 3d. Mount Morgans were firm, but Mount Lyells and other metal shares were steady and quiet. DUNEDIN [THE PRESS Special Service.] DUNEDIN, June 2. Though it was not anticipated when the Government loan was offered in the middle of May that it would adversely affect the market fop already existing loans, it is significant that this week dealing in these has been restricted. The Government loan section has been almost neglected so far as the Dunedin Stock Exchange is concerned. Buyers have maintained a quiet but steady inquiry for certain issues, and in some cases sellers have appeared, but quotations reveal little animation in the nisrkst The banking section from time to time has displayed some activity, but the eager inquiry for New Zealand bank shares, which existed in the previous week, fell away, and the tendency has been for values to ease. Nationals have shown no sign of weakening. English. Scottish, and Australian and Union Banks are the only Australian banks to attract attention No movements of note were recorded in insurance, shipping, or loan and agency sections, though in each case some shares appreciated in value. There was a sporadic inquiry for meat preserving shares during the week, and Southlands entered the sales list. Coal and oil shares found a good market, with Kaitangatas and Westports changing hands at firm values. Moturoa Oils were turned over and Taranakis experienced a sudden sharp rise, which was not maintained. Broken Hill Proprietaries sold firmly at the beginning of the week. Woolworths Properties (rights) attracted a good deal of attention, but here again the market tended to ease slightly. Among the local trading concerns D.I.C. preferred shares. New Zealand Paper Mills, and Dunedin-Kaikorai Trams were prominent. Australian mining shares never lacked attention, and Mount Morgans firmed to have,sales at 11s fid. Mount Lyells were also turned over, but there was no change in value. The New Zealand mining seebon had intermittent inquiries, but J alters found the market unfavourably '

COMPANY NEWS * TRUSTEES, EXECUTORS, AND AGENCY CO. [THE PRESS Special Service.] DUNEDIN, June 2. "For the last, three or four years expenses have increased rapidly, and on top of this heavier taxation has had to be borne, and it was only by increasing the volume of business transacted that it has been possible to keep step on the revenue side with risipg expenditure," said Mr R. J. Hudson, acting-chairman of directors of the Trustees, Executors, and Agency Company of New Zealand, Ltd., at the fifty-sixth annual meeting. The profit for the year (before providing for depreciation) was £3053, as compared with £3803 last year, a decrease of £750. This was due mainly to an increase of £572 in expenses, but it was also contributed to by a drop of £l7B in the gross earnings, said the chairman in moving the adoption of the report and balance-sheet. The directors in the last year or two had been paying some attention to the extension of the company’s business, and this had entailed additional expense, which they were confident would prove ultimately to be justified by results. The building up of a better service was receiving constant consideration. The board now was just on the point of opening a branch office in Invercargill. They had a considerable connexion in Southland to commence with. The record of new business secured in Dunedin and in other parts of the South Island, where the company ’as represented, augured well for the future of the company NATIONAL BANK OF AUSTRALASIA (P»EM ASSOCIATION TKLEOBAU.) WELLINGTON, June 2. The National Bank of Australasia reports that at the annual meeting, Mr Clive McPherson's appointment to the board was confirmed. The retiring directors. Sir James Elder and Mr Clive McPherson, were re-elected. The board of directors of the bank, at a meeting yesterday in Melbourne, re-elected Sir James A. M. Elder and the Hon. Sir Frank Clarke as chairman and vice-chairman respectively for the ensuing, year. ROBINSON ICE CREAM DIVIDEND [THE PRESS Special Service.] AUCKLAND, June 2. The accounts of the Robinson Ice Cream Company, Ltd., for the year ended April 30, show a net profit of £3329, compared with £5480 in the previous year and £3559 in 1936-37. The directors recommend a dividend of 7 per cent, per annum, as against 8 per cent, in the previous year. SMITHFIELD MARKET FURTHER ADVANCE IN LAMB MUTTON IN BETTER DEMAND cpekss association . txx.gqb.au.) WELLINGTON, June 2. The New Zealand Meat Producers’ Board's report on the Smithfield market for the period ended June 1 states that prices for lamb have further advanced, with the tone of the market strong. Wethers and ewes are meeting with irnoroved demand at better prices. There is fair trade at unchanged prices for frozen beef, while chilled is firmer on lighter supplies. Light-weight New Zealand porker pigs are firmer, but trade generally is slow. Baconer pigs are quiet and prices unchanged. Boneless bobby veal is firm on lighter supplies.
