The following shares were active in the Persian Gulf region. Stock symbols are in parentheses.

Tamweel PJSC (TAMWEEL UH) rose to the highest level since April 17, climbing 0.8 percent to 1.30 dirhams, amid investor speculation the Dubai-based mortgage provider may expand into Saudi Arabia after the kingdom passed a mortgage law.
