South Africa stocks book worst quarter

imesJOHANNESBURG: South African blue-chip stocks booked their worst quarterly performance since the second quarter of 2010 on Friday, as concerns about the euro zone debt crisis sent shares down 7.6 in the July-September period.

The Top-40 index of blue-chips finished the day down 0.11 percent at 26,375.82, as steep losses in luxury goods maker Richemont and other heavyweights outweighed a rise in gold miners.

The broader All-Share index finished the day down 0.05 percent at 29,674.20.
