What are the key conclusions from the different exchange rate scenarios that the market can possibly think of and their impact on FVs? 

  • ORHD, EKHOA, AMOC, ESRS, ORAS, SUGR, and SWDY's current market prices do not reflect the expected movements in the exchange rate as much as other stocks have demonstrated. They still possess an upside from the current prices, even if we are talking about an exchange rate of EGP40-45/USD in 2024.
  • MFPC, EGCH, EGAL, ALCN, DSCW, and ABUK are overplayed at current prices.
  • Banks still offer a great opportunity, with a high focus on ADIB, QNBA, and HDBK.
  • ORHD and PHDC are more attractive than their peers at current prices.
