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. The Petrochemical sector soared by 5.71% supported by the strong earnings of SABIC.
