Emerging Stocks Advance for First Time in 2014 on Economy (Bloomberg)

Emerging-market stocks rose for the first time this year after the International Monetary Fund announced today that it will boost its forecast for world economic growth.

Egypt’s EGX 30 Index rallied to a three-year high as EFG-Hermes Holding SAE, the nation’s largest investment bank, surged.
