On the opposite side, Logista has experienced a fall of 1.60%, although the discount on its share of the dividend that will be paid on August 28 has weighed on its price. Excluding this effect, the company has appreciated by 0.41%.

Therefore, the biggest falls were registered by Indra (-1.30%), Grifols (-1.29%), Meliá (-1.23%), Amadeus (-1.23%), Fluidra (-1 08%), IAG (-1.00%) and ArcelorMittal (-0.96%).
