KSE 100-share index loses 63 points
KARACHI, Oct 18: The stock market on Tuesday remained under pressure as a section of investors indulged in renewed profit-selling on a number of counters under the lead of some blue chips, notably Engro Corporation and some others.
On the corporate front, the board of directors of Habib Bank (consolidated) announced an interim dividend at the rate of 30 per cent for the nine month ended on Sept 30, 2011. It was well-received in the market as its share value rose by one rupee at Rs117.12 on 46,899 shares. But on the other hand, Quice Foods omitted payout for the last year ended June 30, 2011.

Analysts said the market appears to be in a consolidation phase in the absence of strong buying from leading investors, notably the foreign ones.
But some others said profit-selling by the institutional traders on the blue chip counters seemed to have changed the investor perceptions about the future share business outlook though short-term basis.
The heating up of the political scenario followed by counter blame-game also took its toll as an active section of investors awaited further developments on this count, they added.
Howerver, barring Engro Corporation some of the leading shares in the fertiliser sector came in for fresh active short-covering despite reports of some problems on the gas supply front, floor brokers said.
Attock Refinery, among the Attock group of companies, also performed credibly well, ending with higher gains for the last two sessions on reports of higher earnings.Fauji Fertiliser, however, maintained its upward drive on strong follow-up support on
reports of higher interim earning and is steadily heading towards its new chart point of Rs200 per share. Fatima Fertiliser and Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim were also actively traded on the higher side, they added.
