Stocks extend overnight gains on selective buying
KARACHI, Sept 14: The share market on Wednesday extended the creeping rally aided by fresh active short-covering in the fertiliser and oil sectors by both the local and foreign investors in an expanded activity.
The benchmark KSE 100-index though ended well below the session`s high of 11,331.03 points but managed to close with a clipped gain of 32.59 points at 11,297.02.
“The chief driving force behind the current rally was performance of the oil and the fertiliser sectors,” said a leading analyst Ahsan Mehanti. “The market talk that Pakistan Petroleum will start oil exploration in Iran with an Iranian company was another supporting factor”.
He hoped that higher corporate payouts by some of the other leading oil companies and market talk of robust interim earnings by the fertiliser sector owing to higher urea prices would continue to contribute to underlying strength of the market in the coming sessions also.
Active buying in Lotte Pakistan, which of late assumed the role of active scrip on reports of higher exports, along with fertiliser shares also added to the underlying strength of the market, analyst Samar Iqbal said.
He said anticipatory buying ahead of corporate board meetings due during the next couple of weeks also played its role in keeping the market in a good shape.
Although higher dividend by some of the leading oil companies under the lead of Attock group contributed modestly to the relative strength of the KSE 100-share index, it derived its main strength from the fertiliser shares, notably Fauji Fertiliser and its sister company followed by Attock Refinery and some others.
The weakness of some other leading base shares, notably National Bank and Engro Corporation was, however, clipped the mid-session gains in it.Prominent gainers were led by Nestle Pakistan and Unilever Pakistan, up by Rs33.53 and Rs35.87, while top losers included Millat Tractors and Island Textiles, off Rs13.40 and Rs10.14.
Turnover figure showed a sharp rise at 75.725m shares from the previous 26m shares but losers held a modest lead over the gainers at 123 to 114, with 99 shares holding onto the last levels.
The active list was led by Lotte Pakistan, up 50 paisa at Rs12.78 on 15m shares followed by Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim, higher Rs2.00 at Rs51.67 on 9m shares, F. Credit and Investment, up Re1 at Rs5.15 on 6m shares, Sui Southern Gas, lower 72 paisa at Rs24.36 also on 36m shares, Arif Habib Corporation, steady by 46 paisa at Rs26.78 on 4m shares, National Bank, lower 43 paisa at Rs44.37 also on 4m shares.
They were followed by Attock Refinery, higher by Rs2.35 at Rs112.41 on 3m shares, followed by Fauji Fertiliser, up Rs2.28 at Rs156.86 on 3m shares and Fatima Fertiliser, firm by 15 paisa at Rs17.17 on 2m shares.
Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim led the actives on this counter, up Rs2.07 at Rs52.07 on 2.170m shares followed by Bank Alfalah lower 10 paisa at Rs10.08 on 1.50m shares, and National Bank, easy by 28 paisa at Rs44.64 on 1.150m shares.
