In the Market
Today, the trading trend was rather flat. The most important news in the market was the granting of automobile purchase provisions. Although the provisions brought about a powerful start for the Automobile sector listed companies, they have so far not met the expectations.. Iran Khodro Company was traded in a positive zone in the early hours of the session. After 8 million shares traded, Pars Khodro Company experienced growth after the news about the French delegation’s trip to Iran on 16 November, which may end in the signing of contracts between Pars Khodro Company and Renault.
The global economic slowdown has resulted in a declining demand, and, therefore, a price plunge in metals throughout the world. In the Metals sector, the Right of Esfahan Mobarakeh Steel Company dropped 5%, despite being warmly welcomed by individual investors. Esfahan Steel Company, however, faced a price hike and ended with a buy queue.
In the Pharmaceutical sector, Rouz Darou Pharmaceutical Company released its financial reports for one month, stating a 45% return over the period; the company seemingly has plans to raise its capital by 100%, 47% of which will be based on retained earnings and 57% of which will rely on investors’ paid-in capital.
In the Banking sector, except for Bank Sina and Kosar Financial and Credit Institution, other symbols ended in the red such that Bank Karafarin ended with a sell queue. Bank Saderat topped the sector in terms of the highest traded volume. In addition, the 100% capital raise plan by Bank Shahr (City Bank) was approved by the Securities and Exchange Organization (SEO).
Finally, despite the sound financial reports in the Chemicals sector, due to the uncertainties regarding gas feed price, investors seem to act cautiously. Tickers in this sector were mostly traded positively; Khorasan Petrochemical Company and Farabi Petrochemical Company faced a buy queue. In addition, despite being negatively traded, Fars Chemical Industries Company also ended with a buy queue.
