ATHEX: Stocks drop, on increased turnover too

Investors at Athinon Avenue made no secret on Wednesday of their displeasure at the handouts announced by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras late on Tuesday, sending the benchmark of the bourse more than 2 percent lower on increased turnover - the highest in the last five sessions. Bank stocks took a heavy beating, and especially that of Piraeus.
