On a macro level, the country has been buoyed by a resurgence in the price of oil , coupled with the "Risk On" feel supporting the markets since January 2019.
More interestingly, on a domestic level, the country has been support by global index makers, such as MSCI , promoting Saudi Arabian shares for inclusion into global benchmark indices, such as the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. This has been a boon for Saudia Arabian stocks, as Saudi shares have received billions in fund flows from global investors, and great exposure to global investors as this asset class opens up further.
Lastly, on a technical basis, the market technicals for Saudi shares ($KSA as a proxy) are quite strong, with the price being supported by the 10-day since December 2018. Furthermore, the Smart Money Index for the $KSA has risen steadily since January 2019, indicating strong flows into Saudia Arabian stocks.
We believe that this trend will continue for 2019 and recommend investors to have exposure to have exposure to Saudia Arabia. For investors who are interested in profiting from this trend, the $KSA provides a great opportunity for investors.
