Fall Together, Rise Alone!

Date : 18/01/2015 Author: M.R Raghu & Humoud S Al Sabah

This is a strange pair of two markets, Saudi Arabia and India. One is a rich oil producer sitting on huge amount of wealth and is 7 times richer than India on a per capita basis. Another is a growing emerging market three times the size of Saudi Arabia.

Never Scream Sell in GCC!

Date : 13/08/2012 Author: M.R. Raghu & Humoud Al Sabah

Since 2010, analysts scream either a buy or hold nearly 90% of the time. In the 2.5 years of study, only during 2H 2010 the market turned reasonably positive validating the scream. In all the other cases, the market movement was totally in contrast to the scream, especially during 2H 2011 when markets tanked 8.2% while 96% of recommendations were either buy or hold. This applies even at stock specific levels.

Kuwait Top 15 Index

Date : 14/05/2012 Author: M.R. Raghu & Humoud Al Sabah

Kuwait Top 15 Index was introduced to mirror the performance of the market as a whole while making it easier for fund managers to track the index by reducing costs and liquidity concerns. The Kuwait 15 differs from the Kuwait weighted Index and the Price index since it only takes into consideration the top 15 companies according to liquidity and size rather than taking the whole universe which contains hard to invest companies due to minuscule size and low liquidity.

Buy-Always…Hold-Sometimes…Sell..Seldom!

Date : 17/05/2011 Author: M.R. Raghu & Humoud Al Sabah

Since Antwerp Stock exchange Equity markets were always [and still are] flooded more with buy recommendations than sell recommendations it becomes a curious topic to understand the rationale. This is even more true for GCC where more than 90% of the recommendations fall either in buy category or hold category with only few sell recommendations. Obviously with markets not doing that great, most of these buy recommendations should bite the dust.
