The main index on the ZSE, CROBEX, increased by 4.94% MoM and ended the month at 2,098.47 points. On a YoY basis, this is an increase of 12.08%. At the same time, CROBEX10 increased by 4.35% MoM, showing that both indices somewhat recovered from the loss they experienced during February.
Looking at the CROBEX10 constituents themselves, AD Plastik was hit the hardest again with a decline of 16.13%, continuing the negative trend that started after the beginning of the Russian invasion. As a reminder, AD Plastik has 27% of revenue generated in Russia, which contributed significantly to this decrease in share price. This is 2nd consecutive worst-performing month for AD Plastik since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which should not come as a surprise, due to AD Plastik operating in Russia. Besides them, all other CROBEX10 constituents experienced a month of growth. Atlantska Plovidba increased the most, growing by 15.4%, followed by Atlantic Grupa with 7.6%, Adris with 6.3%, and Podravka, with 5.4%. On the flip side, Arena Hospitality Group and Valamar Riviera increased by 0.7% and 1.9%, respectively, showing that the uncertainty around the effects of the Russian invasion on the tourism industry has a higher impact. Adris, which also partly operates in this sector experienced a stronger recovery due to their presence in the insurance and food production industries.
