Sahem Weekly Trading Report (06-10)-08-2017

Al-Quds Index ended this week with an increase of 0.53% than its previous closing level last week, to record 562.42 points. However, the semi-annual financial data disclosures witnessed a momentum in the latest days of the granted legal disclosure period, whereby, the disclosure announcements accelerated to formulate a clearer vision about the annual yield on one hand, and the investment direction for some traders’ categories on another hand. While the anticipation for the semi-annual financial data of 2017 continues to be the most dominating factor on Palestine Stock Exchange PEX.

Accordingly, PALTEL records Book Value BV of JD4.07 at the end of June 2017 and P/BV of 1.15x.
