DJ MARKET TALK: Landsbankis Carnegie Sale Fairly Good

[Dow Jones] Landsbanki's (LAIS.IC) EUR110M capital gain from its EUR237M Carnegie (CAR.SK) divestment is "fairly good," says David Rudolfsson at Kaupthing. "They have a very strong capital base now." Says Landsbanki could see some minimal trading losses in 2Q on the sale though, as Carnegie has previously contributed to the line. "But by selling now they avoid a fluctuation in the Carnegie share price." Has a buy recommendation on stock. Shares trade -4.3% at ISK22.2 on depreciating krona and a selloff in the market. (LON)
