Escalating geo political tensions in the region coupled with drop in global crude prices weighed on the performance of the benchmark. For the week, the Financial Index ended lower by 1.32% while the Industrial Index declined by 1.61%. The Services Index ended the week in red by 1.30%. In terms of market activity, a total 71.971 million shares got traded during the week amounting to an aggregate turnover of RO 13.411 million as against RO 14.186 million in previous week. In terms of participation, Foreign Investors emerged as net sellers to an extent of RO 1.675 million. Omani and GCC Investors emerged as net buyers to an extent of RO 1.179 million and RO 435 K respectively. Oman Telecom Data – April 2017 Mobile subscription in the Sultanate reached 7.05 million at the end of April, registering a 2.7% growth over 2016. There was a similar growth in pre-paid subscriptions which reached 6.42 million from 6.25 million. The total number of fixed telephone lines was 457,022 marking an increase by 8.2%. Internet subscribers grew to 306,186. Active mobile broadband subscriptions reached 4.1 million, up 4.2%. International internet bandwidth grew by 18.8% to 404,718 Mbps. (Source: Oman Tribune) Outlook for the upcoming week… During the last trading week, we saw mixed closing among the GCC markets with the underperformance seen in Oman and Qatar. Saudi, Abu Dhabi and Bahrain closed the week almost flat while DFM closed in a positive territory. Owing to enduring regional geopolitical tensions coupled with volatile oil prices we anticipate the MSM and the GCC markets to reveal an increased risk aversion trend among the investors during the week. In addition the ongoing holy month of Ramadan and also holiday’s season may dampen the overall market participation. We recommend investors to stick to the frontline stocks which provide comfort.

National Bank of Oman (NBO), Ahli Bank (ABO), BankDhofar (BD) and Bank Sohar (BS) have also been affirmed at Long-Term IDR BBB-'. The Outlooks on all the Long-Term IDRs are Stable .Fitch has downgraded the Viability Rating (VR) of ABO, reflecting its weaker funding profile relative to peers, particularly its high reliance on wholesale funding and high deposit concentration. Fitch believes Oman has the financial flexibility to support its banking system despite some weakening as a result of lower oil prices. The fiscal policy response to the drop in oil prices has not prevented a significant deterioration in public finances. (Source: Bloomberg) GCC - Weekly News Watch… Emaar Properties has announced plans to offer up to 30% of its UAE real estate development business in an initial public offering (IPO). Subject to market conditions, the funds raised through the sale of equity will be primarily distributed as dividends to Emaar’s shareholders. This will help create significant value for its shareholders, it added.
