RIYADH: Saudi stocks ended the previous trading week higher, outperforming fellow Middle Eastern bourses despite a drop in oil prices.

In Thursday’s session, the main index TASI was up 0.6 percent to close at 13,621 points and the parallel market Nomu edged 0.4 percent higher to 24,418. 

Elsewhere, Egypt’s index EGX30 extended losses by 1.5 percent after UAE’s First Abu Dhabi Bank withdrew its offer to buy a stake in investment bank EFG Hermes.

Shares in FAB were down, triggering a 1.3 percent drop in Abu Dhabi’s index, which remained intact the next day.

Stock exchanges in Qatar, Bahrain and Oman also ended lower, while the Kuwaiti index advanced by 0.2 percent.

Dubai’s DFMGI rose on Friday, fueled by gains in state utility Dubai Electricity and Water Authority following a strong market debut.

In energy trading, oil prices inched up on Friday, but recorded their second weekly decline. Brent crude settled at $102.78, and US benchmark West Texas Intermediate reached $98.26.
