The Grand Bazaar is a historical market situated in the capital of Iran, Tehran.

Overview TSE All Share Index (TEDPIX) rose as much as 6.5 percent in the first month of 2012; capping the best performance in ten months. Though non-economic factors once again made the market volatile, the consequences especially in the banking sector eventually pushed the index higher. Furthermore, the improvement in the global financial markets positively affected the large-cap Basic Metals which also helped to offset some effects of psychological factors.

is said that high level of liquidity is likely to be the main reason behind the recent volatility. So the decision was said to be necessary in order to direct liquidity back to the banks’ deposits. On Jan 25, and after the president approved the CMC’s act, the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) notified the banks about the new package of monetary policies of which paved the way to raise interest rates on five years deposits up to 20 percent. Rates on one year deposits raised to 17 percent and the CBI let the banks compete on rates between these two durations.

CBI Fixes Exchange Rate at 12’260 Later this month, the CBI decided to set the official exchange rate of the USD at 12’260 Rials. Now, the exchanges are allowed to make transactions in a band of 3 to 5 percent higher or lower from the official rate. The limit for hard currency is set at 1 percent. All decisions welcomed by the markets as they now expect lower volatility in asset prices.

Non-inflationary Growth in Housing Sector CMC Raises Interest Rate In January, and in response to volatility, the authority took new actions to fully ensure stability and regularity in the local markets. Notably, on Jan 11 the Credit and Money Council (CMC) decided to raise interest rates. The CMC, which is responsible for setting monetary policies, announced that the interest rates should be set above the inflation. It en.emofid.com 

Normal growth in other sectors of the economy also helped investors, especially those with high-risk profile, choose stocks among other asset classes. Private reports from the housing sector show that prices increased by 20 percent from March to September from the same period last year. Nevertheless, the increase has been in line with inflation rate. Housing policies in recent years, of which stimulate the supply side, probably helped reduce speculations

Markets Warmly Welcome Higher Interest Rates

In January, the TEDPIX advanced in every week, touching 26,000 level for the first time in three months. Regardless of the level of uncertainty, the volatility in the other markets prompted actions by the policymakers that some believe it may benefit the economy. Undoubtedly, the most remarkable action was the increase in the interest rates. At first, it may look like a contractionary policy but the headline does not tell the whole story.

Banks Get the Long-Awaited Package As it was expected, the banking sector was the first to attract investors who bet that the higher rates would eventually be reflected in the banks’ revenues. The rate increase was highly anticipated much earlier, mostly because of the inflationary pleasures, though other factors made it unavoidable. On January 4, just after the rate increase announcement by the CMC, investors rushed to buy stocks of the banks and continued to buy in the following days. The index of banks rose 7.0 percent in January to become the third best performing among the main TSE sectors.

In fact, the low interest rates for relatively long period of time resulted in a continuous reduction in the banks’ deposits; making them unable or reluctant to make commercial The index includes ten banks like Pasargad loans.

Basic Metals Take Advantages of Global Prices As it was mentioned earlier, the improvement in the global markets also contributed to the performance of the stock market. In January, copper prices rose 12.2 percent which, combined with the strengthening USD, helped raw material producers experience higherthan-average increase in their share prices.

the strong dollar. On the other hand, cement industry missed profit estimates while they should face more uncertainty from the housing market and infrastructure projects. Vehicles declined as the speculations about any immediate price increase cooled. At the same time auto industry tries to get official support to reduce the costs of imported materials. Earlier this month, the CBI signaled that it may eliminate the role of currency exchanges for the industry as they were accused of charging unreal prices in transactions.

Steel producers also rose as the domestic Pharmaceuticals also declined in January. prices of steel bars passed the 10 Million Rials The industry heavily relies on imported mate(820 USD) per ton on Jan 8. The uncertainty rials, so they are still waiting for help to import still remains high as the steel prices are very their needs at a favorable exchange rate. sensitive to the demand side which looks not in a very good shape. Nevertheless, the index of Basic Metals, which accounts for 17 percent of the TSE market cap, rose as much as 16.1 percent.

Other Sectors TSE listed chemicals meet expectations with 9.3 percent increase in their index. Investors remain optimistic as companies like the Isfahan Oil Ref [PNES1] covered 80 percent of their year-end profit forecasts in just 9 months. However, not all companies in the index of Chemicals were so attractive. There are small producers, like the producers of washing powders, who must wait to get approval for raising prices as they struggle with 10 to 15 increase on imported raw material because of en.emofid.comâ€

Fund | Pishtaz Mutual Fund Commentary January was a relatively good month for the Tehran Stock Exchange. Pishtaz fund advanced 6.2 percent and was ranked the 10th among 61 mutual funds active in Iran capital market for the first month of 2012. Pishtaz has significant positions in Iron Ore companies, copper and steel producers that all did well in January. Many of the natural resource companies, that price there products in hard currencies, have a relatively low P/E ratio of 4 to 5 and we are optimistic about their performance over the next 2 to 5 months.

Fund | Momtaz Mutual Fund Commentary In January the main index (TEDPIX) advanced 6.2 percent and Momtaz fund advanced 9 percent and was the 5th best performer among 61 mutual funds active in the market. Higher prices of commodities and natural resources as well as depreciation of Rial versus US Dollar were the most important factors that fueled higher prices for stocks of natural resource and commodities companies and contributed to the performance of Momtaz fund. Also anticipations of the year-end annual meetings and dividends distributions over the next 2 to 5 months create a safety net that makes buying at current prices relatively attractive. Momtaz has a net cash position of roughly 10 percent of assets that we plan to put to use over the next 2 month.

Fund | Pishro Mutual Fund Commentary With 8.8 percent return in January Pishro fund ranked 6th among all active mutual funds. Pishro has large positions in Chemicals & byproducts sector. Roughly 10 percent of the fund is invested in Pardis Petrochemical Co (the largest producer of Urea in Iran) which had a remarkable performance in the first month of 2012. Although non-economic factors are very important, we think that the market itself can do relatively well because, we believe, many of the natural resource and basic metal companies are still undervalued and are likely to rise because of the expectations of the yearend annual reports and dividends distributions over the next months.
