S&P/ASX 200 rallies to 11.5 year high

Proactive Investors Monday, 20 May 2019
S&P/ASX 200 (INDEXASX:XJO) closed 1.7% higher at 6476, its highest level since December 14, 2007. The market gained as the coalition’s surprise re-election stamped out the threat of dividend imputation changes and capped health insurance premiums. The banks provided the market with the biggest boost, as the financial sector surged 5.9%. Westpac Bank (ASX:WBC) jumped 9.2% to $27.75, while ANZ Bank (ASX:ANZ) climbed 7.8% to $27.86. Without gains in the finance sector the market would have been down. Big drop for Webjet The biggest decline was Webjet (ASX:WEB) falling 7.7% to $15.50, nearmap (ASX:NEA) closing 5.7% lower at $3.61 and Altium (ASX:ALU) which closed 4.6% lower at $31.10.
