Saudi Arabia stocks were higher after the close on Sunday, as gains in the Media & Publishing, Cement and Financial Services sectors led shares higher.
At the close, the stock benchmark Tadawul All Share Index gained 0.82% to hit a new 52-week high.
The best performers of the session on the Tadawul All Share were Saudi Research and Marketing Group, which rose 10.68% or 3.15 points to trade at 32.65 at the close. Meanwhile, Saudi Printing & Packaging Company added 9.79% or 1.42 points to end at 15.92 and Saudi Arabian Mining Company was up 8.15% or 4.00 points to 53.10 in late trade.

Rising stocks outnumbered declining ones on the Saudi Arabia Stock Exchange by 114 to 50 and 15 ended unchanged.

Meanwhile, the Qatari stock index sank as much as 3.1% on Sunday, bringing its losses to 11.9% since June 5, when Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and trade ties, accusing Doha of backing terrorism.
Oil rose for a seventh straight session on Friday on a declining US rig count and stronger demand data from China, while US equities mostly rebounded to end a volatile week on an up-beat, helped by a double-digit jump in Nike shares.
US crude futures settled up $1.11 at $46.04 a barrel, the first close above $46 in two weeks. Benchmark Brent crude futures rose 50 cents to settle at $47.92 a barrel.
