(MENAFN - Jordan Times) Despite a substantial fall in third quarter corporate earnings, the Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) closed last week at 2,615.9 points, slightly down by 0.3 per cent. The decline was restrained by higher share prices of Royal Jordanian and Jordan Cement, which recorded higher than expected profits, and Arab Bank whose shares came under a strong demand following a JD46.6 million block deal executed by a Saudi investor.
