On another hand and despite the reinforcement of the investment feasibility in Palestine Stock Exchange PEX- with the expectations’ rise of the returns’ achievement with the increase in dividends’ proposals of the listed companies-, the calmness in the PEX may be justified with the decline in the general incentives. However, with the approaching end of the first quarter of the year 2022, the coming period will witness new anticipation with the start of listed companies to disclose their quarterly financial and operational results, to charge some optimism for that could appear as new liquidity activity. It is good to note that Palestine Stock Exchange PEX has extended the legal period for the listed companies’ quarterly disclosures for Q1 and Q3 from 30 day to 45 days.
