The benchmark S&P/ ASX200 index yesterday closed 65.7 points, or 1.37 per cent, higher at 4859 points, while the broader All Ordinaries index was up 65.9 points, or 1.35 per cent, at 4940.2. On the ASX 24, the June share price index futures contract was up 70 points at 4865 points, with 33,749 contracts traded. Australian Stock Report head of research Geoff Saffer said the market reversed Tuesdays rout as investors snapped up material stocks. BHP Billiton and Wesfarmers were the highlights, with the worlds biggest re source company unveiling strong March quarter production levels, he said. BHP is up on a strong third quarter production report, in particular with strong iron ore output, Mr Saffer said. BHP Billiton gained 56 cents to $47.23, while Rio Tinto added $1.02 to $83.12. Wesfarmers is up on its own third quarter sales numbers, in particular the key Coles (supermarkets) business with sales growth beating numbers provided by Woolworths on Monday, Mr Saffer said. Wesfarmers seems to have taken more market share in the recent quarter . . . Shares in Wesfarmers climbed 47 cents to $33.37, while Woolworths found five cents to $26.53. Gold miners fared well after the gold price broke through $US1500 per fine ounce in offshore markets overnight, Mr Saffer said. The gold price in Sydney closed at $US1502.50 per fine ounce, up $US10.33 from $US1492.17 on Tuesday. Gold major Newcrest Mining jumped $1.02, or 2.5 per cent, to $41.82. Oil majors also gained ground, with Oil Search up six cents at $7.13, Woodside Petroleum firming 55 cents to $46.60, and Santos jumping 37 cents to $15.63. Santos yesterday downgraded its full-year production guidance, blaming wild tropical weather for a drop in first quarter production and sales. Banks and financials made gains across the board, with ANZ leading the big four banks higher, gaining 44 cents to $23.84. In other news yesterday, PanAusts copper production at its Laos operation was in line with its production schedule on a better-thanexpected cash cost performance. PanAusts stock firmed three cents to 76.5 cents. Pharmacy group Australian Pharmaceutical Industries reported a half-year net loss but says its full-year profit should be in line with the previous year.
