In the Market
At the end of today’s trading session, low volume trades were observed in the Construction sector; the recently released financial reports were not satisfactory and the housing sector market is still dominated by a deep recession.
Tickers in the Sugar sector ended in the red; as has been mentioned, many analysts had warned about the speculative pressures as the main reason for the earlier surges in the share prices of the sugar companies.
The Insurance and Civil Pension Fund sector, positive fluctuations were seen, despite the low level volume trades. Ma Insurance Company continued its price hike which has been due the company’s capital raise plan by 300%. According to the latest news, the company is going to raise its capital in two phases such that in the first phase, the capital will be raised up to 100%. Generally speaking, the sector enjoys fine fundamental conditions, regarding the released financial statements. It has also been heard that Kosar Insurance Company is about to start the second phase of its capital raise plan in order to increase the company’s capacity to take risk and to meet the requirements obliged by the regulations to spread its activities, based on its investors’ paid in capital.
In the Transportation sector, investors were more tended towards selling their shares; most tickers, except from symbols such as Tidewater Middle East Company were negatively traded. This company has positively adjusted its EPS due to the profit gained by selling one of its fixed assets. In addition, Tuka Rail Company seems to enjoy good fundamentals and taking the government’s approach towards developments in rail transportation services into account, it appears to have a bright future ahead.
Finally, in the Chemicals sector, gas feed price, oil price and exchange rate are the three factors influencing symbols in this sector; exchange rate tends to increase while oil price seems to continue its plunge; besides, the issue of gas feed price has not been yet resolved. However, the effect of exchange rate increase on companies’ profitability is undeniable. As a result of such ambiguities, investors do not seem to be capable of making proper decisions and are awaiting the right time to invest.
