In the Market
Today, as the result of the newly granted provisions, the Automotive sector started today’s trading session strong; however, it balanced off towards the end.
Being negatively affected by the provisions, the Other Financial Intermediaries sector attracted the attention of investors’ attention due to lower and attractive prices and the listed companies faced a price growth.
In the Oil Products sector, most tickers faced a price hike. Lavan Oil Refining Company gained the attention of investors after releasing sound production and sales statistics.
The symbols in the Chemicals sector enjoy better fundamentals; factors such as gas feed prices, the anticipated gas consumption in the forthcoming winter, the USD-IRR exchange rate, as well as global prices are likely to positively affect companies. In addition, the upcoming exploitation of Pars-e Jonoubi’s phases and gas production growth are other positive factors, which, if accompanied by sanctions lifting, the new technologies and the introduction of new financial instruments for financing, will bring about a bright future for chemical companies.
Finally, the Metals sector companies remained in the green area for the fifth consecutive day, paving the way for the 5.1% growth of the sector’s index. National Iranian Copper Industries Company topped the sector in terms of the highest trade value and volume.
