Major Gulf stocks slump over spreading coronavirus fears
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 26 - 01 - 2020

All major stock markets in the Gulf opened lower on Sunday following a fall in crude prices over concerns that a coronavirus will spread farther in China, curbing travel and oil demand.
On Friday, Brent crude settled at $60.69 a barrel, down $1.35, or 2.2%.
More than 2,000 people globally have been infected with a new coronavirus, the vast majority of them in China, where 56 people have died from the disease, according to figures released on Sunday.
In Saudi Arabia, the index fell 0.6% with Saudi Aramco declining 0.9% and Al Rajhi Bank shedding 0.6%.
The Saudi index sustained additional damage from a couple of poor corporate earnings.
Saudi Kayan Petrochemical, where the fourth quarter loss widened to 167.4 million riyals ($44.63 million), and Saudi Arabian Fertilizer, which reported a 40.5% decline in the profit for the same period, dropped 4.3% and 2.2% respectively.
The Dubai index was down 0.1% as Dubai Islamic Bank eased 0.7% and Emaar Malls lost 1.1%.
Abu Dhabi's index edged down 0.1% with Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank both shedding 0.5%.
The lender ADCB postponed a meeting of its board of directors that was scheduled on Sunday to discuss the annual financial results.
