DK: Danish shares - Vestas rise

Vestas Wind Systems closed 0.75 higher at 172 ahead of next week's results. The consensus is for an operating profit of 51 mln eur for the first six months of the year, a huge improvement from the loss of 78 mln the year earlier, and analysts said they believe the wind turbine maker is likely to raise its guidance for the full-year 2006.
