Leighton deflects ASX price query

Construction group says it is unaware of reason for $2 spike in stock.

Leighton Holdings (LEI) has responded to an ASX price query, saying that it is unaware of any reason for the recent surge in its share price.

The market operator issued Leighton with the query today after its stock rose more than $2 since Wednesday's close of trade.

The ASX also noted an increase in trading volume over that time.

The construction group confirmed it was in compliance with the terms of its listing.
