Palestine Stock Exchange PEX’s trading were active in the penultimate week of the year 2013, amid an acceleration in the indicators that may stem from the principle of confidence in investments feasibility of the Palestinian equities from one hand, and the related periodic optimism from another hand.  Over the years, the intrinsic value of the listed shares maximized following accumulating and retaining profits in growing rates in addition to the gradual cash dividends distribution in parallel. This yielded very attractive market indicators, especially with the record stability in shares’ prices that resulted from the limited correlation to the regional markets and its compelling investment entity, therefore rising the ability to price correction and growth towards book and fair values through smooth transactions and prices movement.
