ABU DHABI 20 June 2017: In yet a new bullish sign of its ability to break new highs over the coming few days and to further stir the market appetite, Emaar broke the Dh8 mark for the second time in two weeks, drawing transactions worth Dh88 million on Monday.
Analysts attributed the upbeat sentiments that prevailed today to Emaar’s outperformance, specially that the largest share of liquidity attracted by the company was secured during the second half of Monday’s session, and particularly when the UAE property giant started to fly high until the end of the trading – an overall positive mood which augurs well for several companies to follow suit and noticeably improve during the latter half of the year, said Wam.
Toward this end, the Dubai Financial Market General Index was up 0.41 percent to close at 3458 points, while Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange edged bit down 0.21 percent at 4491 points.
DFM’s advancing shares in today’s session, included Emaar Malls which increased to AED2.58 and Dubai Investments which closed up at Dh2.18. In ADX, Aldar closed on a high note of Dh2.35, with ADCB eclipsing all at the banking sector, spiking to Dh7.13.
