Following the brief rebellion by the Russian private military group Wagner, the S&P/NZX 50 Index fell at the opening and closed on 11,638.68, down 98.86 points or 0.84%. The index has now increased almost 1.5% so far this year.

Trading was light with 22.23 million shares worth $81.57m changing hands, and there were 38 gainers and 90 decliners over the whole market. The healthcare and industrial sectors were down 1.86% and 1.22% respectively.

Jeremy Sullivan, investment advisor with Hamilton Hindin Greene, said offshore markets were weaker in their last trading session and the geopolitical uncertainty – which affects commodity prices – made investors wary.

“The Wagner Group must have had the quickest attempted coup in history. Over the weekend it shows how quickly things can change. What we were concerned about six to 12 months ago – getting on top of inflation and rising interest rates – is now less of a worry,” Sullivan said.

The United States market rally stalled at the weekend. The Nasdaq Composite, down 1.01% to 13,492.52 points, broke an eight-week winning streak, though it is still up nearly 29% so far this year. 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.65% to 33,727.43 points and S&P 500 decreased 0.27% to 4348.33, ending three and five-week winning streaks.

Across the Tasman, the S&P/ASX 200 Index was down 0.4% to 7070.5 points at 6pm NZ time, and the index was sitting at an increase of 0.5% for the year.

At home, Ebos Group – still reeling from losing its Chemist Warehouse Australian contract – led the market down with a fall of $1.31 or 3.56% to $35.49.

Fisher and Paykel Healthcare was down 29c to $23.48; Auckland International Airport declined 11c to $8.35; Freightways shed 16c, or 1.89%, to $8.30; Mainfreight was down $1.05 to $71.95; Fletcher Building retreated 8c to $5.18; and Skellerup Holdings decreased 10c or 2.14% to $4.58.

Retirement village operators Summerset Group declined 11c to $9.45, and Ryman Healthcare was up 3c to $6.53.

In the energy sector, Meridian was down 9c to $5.31; Contact declined 13c to $7.87; Mercury decreased 7c to $6.34; and Manawa shed 4c to $4.71.

Carbon Fund fell 12c, or 8.45%, to $1.30. Sullivan said the fund was trading at “a large 20c disconnect” to its net tangible assets ($1.53) because of the failure of the last two carbon auctions.

Infratil gained 16c to $9.835; Napier Port collected 4c to $2.44; Serko increased 8c, or 2.31%, to $3.55; and Steel & Tube was up 2c, or 1.85%, to $1.10.

Air NZ picked up 0.005c to 78c after telling the market it carried 1.168m passengers in May, just shy of 1.281m for the same month in pre-covid 2019. Long haul passengers totalled 137,000 compared with 165,000 in 2019.

Genesis Energy, down 2c to $2.705, has opened its $240m 30-year green bonds offer which is expected to close on Thursday. Genesis is in effect rolling over long-term capital.

Ventia Services, unchanged at $3.13, has secured a five-year maintenance contract with the Australian Department of Defence and will deliver more than $390m in revenue over that period, with a possible extension of another five years.

Software firm Blackpearl Group, unchanged at 45c, raised $2.2m through a private placement at 42c a share.

Rua Bioscience was down 0.006c or 3.85% to 15c after receiving licences to trade in Australia. Rua will launch a range of medicinal cannabis products across the ditch in the third quarter of this year.

Embark Education Group was up 2c or 3.45% to 60c on its last day of trading on the NZX before it delists and maintains its primary listing on the Australian exchange.
