Most Gulf stock markets sustain losses in 2006

Despite last year's predominant disparity of Gulf bourses' performance, all shared the headache of nose-diving after years of prosperity, an economic report said Sunday.

Bayan Investment Company said that the multiple factors played an important role in the reinvigoration of these stock markets, namely the economic growth, rise of oil prices and surge of revenues and surplus funds.

The report noted that intertwined pressures pushed these markets to the dip ranging from minor to major. Top of these pressures is the inflationary trend of most share values that hit sometime back unjustified levels.

Consequently it was natural for the demand and supply pressures to allow the shares and consequently the markets to regain the required equilibrium after absorbing the unjustified rises.

Most share were denominated for values that outstrip the real ones that balance risks with the required returns and in the end result they had no other choice but to retreat. However the dip took a more serious trend and it was interpreted as collapse of some markets. This created panic and willingness of holders to shed out their holdings for any amount. In the end result supply hiked against dropping demand or even very scarce demand.

As a result of the markets' fluctuations over the year the performance was well noted, Muscat stock exchange came first, Bahrain' stock market performance was modest while the losses sustained by the other markets ranged from 12 percent for Kuwait or the least and 52.5 percent for Saudi Arabia that sustained the highest loss.
