KARACHI, Sept 8: The share market on Thursday maintained its upward thrust on steady inflow of investment buying on selected counters aided by reports of higher corporate earnings and payout under the lead of Hub-Power Company.
The market’s steady posture was also evident from the KSE 100-share index, which though failed to sustain the earlier run-up to 11,416.95 but ended adding another 18.65 points to the overnight total at 11,348.42.
Leading analysts attributed various reasons to the market’s current positive stance but all were united that the prevailing optimism has sound reasons behind it.
Analyst Samar Iqbal said late selling in the index heavy-weight, OGDC, was chipped away 37 points from the benchmark but pre-result buying in Attock group of companies allowed it finish with a modest extended gain.
“The creeping rallies reflect that investors are determined to maintain the rising tempo on the strength of higher corporate earnings,” said a leading analyst Faisal Abbas who added that “the current rally may not be that elusive as it is backed by more
than one positive news.”
Analyst Ahsan Mehanti said the perception of peace in the city and some positive developments on the political front continued to inspire fresh covering purchases and indications are that the current bull-run is expected to be sustained in the
coming sessions also.
