Index gains 67 points on selective buying
KARACHI, Aug 16: The share market on Tuesday showed an improved trend on active short-covering in the oil sector and other blue chips at the lower levels followed by reports that the government has approved the margins of oil marketing companies.
The share values of PSO, Shell Pakistan, Attock Petroleum, OGDC and Pakistan Oilfields surged from the current lows on the judicious blend of both local and foreign buying.
But the broader market did not follow the lead of the blue chip counters as investors played safe and were not carried away by lone positive news as was reflected by a light volume figure, some analysts said.
The benchmark KSE 100-index, however, managed to post a good gain of 67.65 points at 11,233.75 on the strength of leading base shares, notably OGDC, PSO, Shell Pakistan, Fauji Fertiliser and Pakistan Oilfields.
“I don’t think flash rallies essentially reflect the mood of the prospective investor,” said a leading analyst.
Most analysts believe that during the holy month there could hardly be any change in the status quo as some of the best corporate announcements may not put the market on a stable course.
They said investors are worried over the other positive factors, notably ties with the US, which investors need as a supporting wall on the aid front and added to it law and order situation in the city and worries over personal security.
It was in this background instant flashes were visible on a number of counters under the lead of Unilever Pakistan and Rafhan Maize, up Rs250.11 and Rs133.33, while Wyeth Pakistan and Nestle Pakistan fell by Rs40 and Rs33.66 respectively.
Traded volume was maintained slightly above the overnight level at 26.768m shares but losers maintained a slight edge over the gainers at 104 to 101, with 89 shares holding on to the last levels.
The active list was topped by Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim, firm by 91 paisa at Rs47.73 on 3m shares followed by PTCL, easy by four paisa at Rs11.47 on 1.827m shares, National Bank, steady by one paisa at Rs45.57 on 1.775m shares, JS & Co, easy three paisa at Rs5.89 on 1.318m shares, Lotte Pakistan, easy by one paisa at Rs10.67 on 1.237m shares, Pakistan Oilfields, higher by Rs3.26 at Rs348.44 on 0.954m shares and Pakgen Power, lower two paisa at Rs20.37 on 0.909m shares.
They were followed by Fauji Fertiliser, higher by Rs1.98 at Rs155.53 on 0.843m shares, PSO, sharply higher by Rs7.80 at Rs237.16 on 0.823m shares, and Attock Refinery, up Rs1.86 at Rs114.79 on 0.821m shares.
FUTURE CONTRACTS: Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim led the list of actives on this counter and quoted higher by 89 paisa at Rs47.88 on 0.695m shares followed by Engro Corporation, off Rs1.34 at Rs127.31 on 0.535m shares and Pakistan Oilfields, sharply higher by Rs4.18 at Rs349.34 on 0.418m shares.
