The article discusses the outcome of "MEED: Middle East Economic Digest" analysis of the Middle East's top 100 publicly quoted companies by capitalization. It shows that the 8-month-long correction in the Gulfs capital markets, which began in February 2006, has created some good opportunities for investors, if the authorities can restore confidence in the bourses. But the optimism must be tempered with the knowledge that the authorities still have to implement many of the lessons from the 2006 crash.
