On the other hand ,in spite of the market capitalization for the listed companies has increased in 2003 to reach LE 171.9 billion or 42.4% of GDP compared with LE 112.3 billion in 1999 or 34.4% GDP ,the picture become clear if we know that the number of public joint stock companies, which reflects the real performance of the market, constitute 17.5% of total companies listed in 2002 and it's market capitalization constitute 27% of total market capitalization, has increased in 2003 reached 37.4% of total market capitalization.
