Delta added another 2.98c to hit an all-time high of 122c and remained buyers at the same price in deals worth $378 439. After today's trades Delta's market cap rose to $1.467 billion, which is way above Zfn's target value of $1.2 billion.

Telecoms counter Econet also advanced 10.01 c to 545.01c which is just 1.80% shy of its all-time high of 555c set on October 21, 2009.
