- Going up 379 units, the TEDPIX reached the 78,704 point level in the previous session, benefiting investors with an average 5.62% return in the 11 working days during Mordad month (Started 29 July). The most profitable sectors have been Iron Ore, Metals, Chemicals and Oil Products, mainly after their positive Q1 financial statements, caused by global commodity price growth, were released. In the past few sessions, the All-Share index has grown between 0.5%- 1%, mainly owing to high market cap companies activities, those which had disappointed their shareholders in the recent months. Since Tuesday in the previous week, however, shares worth more than $9.90 mn have been transferred from institutional to individual shareholders, moving the Overall index by 2.7% upwards. Besides, shares worth more than $1.41 mn in symbols such as Tamin Petroleum and Petrochemical Investment (Tappico), Omid Investment Management Group (Va-omid) and Tose’e Melli Investment Group (Vabank) also changed hands from institutional to individual shareholders in the session before. Despite the trend seen in previous actions, individual shareholders constituted the major buyers and block trades did not play a significant role in this growth. Purchases by institutional investors can be interpreted as a share-supporting signal and hinder stock price fall; since the share price trend is usually determined by individual investors’ liquidity, such a signal can also motivate individual investors to more participate in the market in the upcoming sessions. Under the current situation, it seems that we should wait and see whether such kinds of support will have the potential to attract retail investors’ trust or not and lead to more growth in the TEDPIX.
- According to a well-informed market practitioner, the required permissions have been obtained to launch a Gold Fund within the next month in the country. Referring to the constraints set by the Securities and Exchange Organization of Iran regarding physical gold trades, using gold certificate of deposit has been introduced as a solution. Considering the establishment of the foreign exchange fund, he also stated that the Central Bank’s policy of foreign exchange rate unification will accelerate the process.
