2019-09-26

 Sahem Weekly Trading Report (22-26)-09-2019

In this week, Al-Quds Index continued its declining, to be confined to a relatively narrow price range without any noticeable or wide price movements, closing at the level of 517.21 points; down by 0.28% than its previous weekly closing level. While the normal liquidity levels are still weak coinciding with the increase in the investors’ conservatism prior to the start of the financial data disclosures for the first nine months of the year 2019, which will start by the end of September. This came despite executing cross institutional transactions on the stocks of Palestine Real Estate Investment Company PRICO- the investment arm of Palestine Development and Investment Company PADICO in the real estate sector- of 0.62 million shares in the week. In terms of investors' expectations, varied degrees of optimism and pessimism about the financial and operational results of listed companies for the period appear.

According to the substantial news, the Palestinian Ministry of Information and Communication Technology has requested the reduction of prices by 10-20% for internet access line provided by the Palestinian Telecommunications Company (PALTEL), effective on the first of October 2019. The ministry said that it has set new prices for access lines of various speeds, which should also go into effect from October. The ministry added that it is reviewing the work of all internet providers in Palestine to make sure they adhere to the terms of their license agreement. It also added that it has created a joint committee with them to better organize the sector, and to make it more efficient and competitive. Moreover, it urged telecommunications companies and providers to establish a new telecommunication company that can compete against PALTEL, which has a monopoly over all land lines in Palestine.

Regarding the economic news and according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics PCBS and Palestine Monetary Authority PMA, the preliminary results of the Palestinian Balance of Payments (BoP) showed an incessant deficit in the Current Account (goods, services, income, current transfers) which totaled$ 403 million.
