Fund Manager's Comments:
TASI has sustained its gains for the second month in a row, and close at 6,710.56 points, which is 2.25% higher than the previous month. Thus, Market performance YTD has recorded 1.36% positive return. The strong and healthy first quarter results of 2011 for the Saudi banks, petrochemical and retail companies' earnings along with the steadiness of oil prices above the USD 100/barrel level, have led to the upward performance in TASI during this month. Market sectors have witnessed mixed performance during the month where the best performer sectors were the Retail and Insurance which soared by 11.91% and 10.99% respectively while the worst performer sectors were Transport sector and Bank & financial services which declined by 5.55% and 1.57% compare to the previous month. Trading activity rose slightly in April by 3.0% higher value than the previous month.
