The good news about Malaysia Airports' resolution of its new terminal uncertainty has faded slightly as speculators took profits from the recent rise. Hochtief also suffered a similar reduction, it too losing 9.3% of value.
Meanwhile, Ferrovial, which last week reported a 2008 loss, has also been under pressure, despite maintaining a positive outlook for 2009. Shares fell 5.6% on the day.
Macquarie Airports, recently coming under some media fire over its debt levels, regained some of the recent losses, gaining 6.2%.
