 Sahem Weekly Trading Report (28-01)-(01-02)-2018                                                                

Executing several high-volume transactions in Palestine Stock Exchange PEX on some stocks of the banking and financial services’ sector and others in this week have raised the trading value significantly of this week. Whereby, executing such transactions in this routine period may be related to repositioning reasons on specific stocks and sectors during the dividends distribution announcements period. Nevertheless, Al-Quds Index closed in this week in the red zone at 576.93 points; down by 0.25% than its previous weekly closing level; affected by the instability in the prices of some heavy weighted stocks and medium capitalization stocks in the PEX. On another hand, some of the important news this week is the start of announcing the preliminary annual financial and operational data disclosures by the listed companies.

This mainly followed an increase in the company’s sales by 12.84%. However, based on the disclosed figures, NAPCO records book value BV of JD1.57 and P/BV of 0.55x. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that the board of directors of the company held a meeting last week to discuss the ability of distributing 5% cash dividends to its shareholders for the year 2017, to record dividends yield of 5.81% based on the current market price.
