2019-04-11

 Sahem Weekly Trading Report (07-11)-04-2019

In this week, Palestine Stock Exchange PEX’s transactions were characterized by slowness and conservatism amid growing momentum of general assemblies’ meetings and a steady flow of dividends decisions. Whereby, the PEX witnessed a calm pace in terms of liquidity on one hand, and price movements in the PEX on another hand if we exclude executing the institutional transactions on the listed companies from time to time, where, in this week several transactions were executed on the stock of Palestine Islamic Bank ISBK of 0.88 million shares, to top the PEX trading by 43.84%, and increase by 1.01% than the previous week, to close at the level of $2.01. On another hand, Al-Quds Index declined by 0.51% than the previous week, to close at the level of 535.62 points. With the mid of this month, the other half of April is on the radar to start reporting first quarterly financial data disclosures, thereby, the conservative behavior of investors in the market was reinforced due to the overlapping of the elements causing the anticipation and driving the prudence prior to taking any investment or liquidation decision. Where the PEX grants the listed companies a period of one month since the end of March to disclose its financial and operational financial data for Q1 2019.
