TASI starts the week higher on strong earnings reports: Opening bell

Follow-ups -eshrag News:

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s benchmark index TASI ended flat at 12,291 last week, amid a wave of earning reports and declining oil prices.

The UAE and Qatar indexes were down as a drop in oil prices dragged down shares, but other Gulf peers recorded slight gains.

Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Qatar lost 0.3, 0.5, and 0.1 percent, respectively, while Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman advanced between 0.1 percent and 0.2 percent.

Elsewhere in the Middle East, Egypt’s blue-chip index EGX30 gained as much as 5.3 percent.

Oil prices exited the previous week at their lowest level since February, with Brent crude settling at $94.92 a barrel and US West Texas Intermediate at $89.01 a barrel.
