Karachi Stocks gains
KARACHI, Oct 12: The stock market on Wednesday consolidated previous gains on renewed covering purchases on the oil and fertilizer counters but floor brokers said the post-interest rate cut buying euphoria is still to manifest itself in a bigger way.
The KSE 100-share index posted fractional rise of 4.25 points at 12,050.07 as leading base shares, notably Engro Corporation, Fauji Fertiliser, Arif Habib Corporation, Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim and leading oil shares came in for fresh support.
Analysts were, however, of the view that the current consolidation moves reflect that battle lines are being drawn for the target areas and there could be many pleasant surprises in the coming sessions.
“Renewed covering purchases in the fertilizer shares at the current levels could well give the needed push to big market players on the other counters, paving the way for the benchmark to maintain its onward thrust beyond the level of 12,000, they added.
They said investors appear to be in the process of adding new portfolios to the existing ones in the light of interest cut and the leveraged stocks could lead the rally in the coming sessions.
Market sources said that fears of political instability keep some of the leading foreign investors operating in the oil sector a bit shy as far as other blue chips are concerned in which they had a big stake previously.
Leading gainers were led by Attock Petroleum, and Bhanero Textiles, up Rs14.14 and 12.21, while among the top losers Siemens Pakistan and Wyeth Pakistan were leading, off by Rs25.81 and 12.86, respectively.
Traded volume declined further to 117.813m shares from the previous 142m shares but gainers held a strong lead over the losers at 151 to 96, with 96 shares holding to the last levels.

The active list was led by Lotte Pakistan on reports of higher payout, up 71 paisa at Rs12.89 on 32m shares followed by Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim, steady by 86 paisa at 62.14 on 10m shares, Hub-Power, firm by 33 paisa at Rs42 on 9m shares, Fatima Fertiliser, easy by 26 paisa at Rs21 on 7m shares, Arif Habib Corporation, higher by Rs1.27 at 34.33 on 7m shares, D. G. Khan Cement, lower by 57 paisa at 22.56 also on 7m shares, and J.S. & Co, firm by 11 paisa at 5.66 on 4m shares, Fauji Fertiliser, up Rs3.86 at Rs184.10 on 4m shares and PTCL, steady by one paisa at 12.60 on 3m shares.
