Aldar, Sorouh shares will continue trading upward today

Shares of Aldar Properties and Sorouh Real Estate surged in heavy trading yesterday, by 12.9% and 11.7% respectively. This is close to their daily upward limit of 15%, which is higher than in Dubai where the limit is 10%. The both property developers were for many years top performers on ADX and favorite market leaders to local investors and traders.

The two companies are expected to complete their merger in June, which will result in Sorouh being delisted from the bourse. However, change in policy would not be unexpected or unwelcome, given the size of the both property developers portfolios. Property investment analysts do not foresee rents and real estate prices increase in Abu Dhabi in 2013 due to to the tremendous news supply of residential units. However, the long term vision for the emirate suggest that the coming years will see strong performance across all sectors of the economy.
