Meanwhile, Deyaar Development will also be in focus after reporting a 2.8 percent rise in second-quarter net profit, despite a 57.1 percent fall in revenue during the three months to June 30. More»

Qatar stocks have been overlooked this year during a boom in some neighbouring Gulf markets, but new financial reforms and attractive valuations could pave the way for a rebound. Concerns about the slow pace of Qatar's massive infrastructure building programme has weighed on the Doha stock market this year. Trading volumes have also dropped significantly since mid-June with the summer lull kicking in and initial earnings reports presenting a mixed picture for investors. Qatar National Bank, the Gulf Arab state's largest lender by market value, this month posted a 16.7 percent jump in second-quarter profits, matching forecasts. Qatar Islamic Bank missed estimates, reporting a drop in net profit. More»

Shares in Zain Saudi slumped to a record low on Monday amid a slow initial take-up of its rights issue, while Saudi Arabia's index fell to a near three-week low. But Emaar Properties lifted Dubai's bourse. Shares in Zain Saudi sank 4.4 percent to 11.90 riyals. The telecom operator's $1.6 billion rights issue, which closes on Tuesday, has sold only 54 percent of shares available, lead underwriter Banque Saudi Fransi (BSF) said. Parent firm Zain and underwriting banks are set to meet any shortfall. "People are playing it as an arbitrage opportunity, selling it at the current price and buying it at 10 riyals (the rights issue price)," said Ahmed Raza Khan, head of research for asset management at Riyadh-based MEFIC Capital.
