Saudi Arabia?s Tadawul All Share stock index (TASI) reached 12,260 on Tuesday, the highest since June 2006 as oil prices extended gains to an over 7-year high on worries about supply disruptions after Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group attacked the UAE, the third-biggest OPEC producer.
TASI's climb to over a 15-year high is a continuation of last year's successful rally ? which saw the index rise by +28.6% ? after a shy 2020 (+3.57%). Year-to-date, the TASI has gained 8.08%, lifted by shares of Saudi Tadawul Group Holdings (+34%), the Saudi British Bank (+26.5%), ACWA Power (+21.43%), and the Saudi Research & Marketing Group (+21.2%).
