KSE-100 Index recovers 23 points amid shaky sentiment
KARACHI, Dec 14: The stock market recovered from the overnight lows on Wednesday on revival of demand on blue chip counters at the lower levels but the underlying sentiment remained shaky owing to continued standoff with the US on political front.
The KSE 100-share index was, however, quoted higher by 22.97 points at 11,300.99 as compared 11,278.02 a day earlier as leading base shares came in for active short-covering under the lead of Attock Petroleum, Shell Pakistan, OGDC, Fauji Fertiliser and some others that finished higher. Analysts said the massive overnight erosion, caused by active selling in the index-heavy OGDC, which shed Rs4 and contributed about a half to the total fall of about 1.7 per cent, was one of the chief reasons behind the massive sell-off.
But a good bit of short-covering in it along with some other pivotals at the decline enabled the market to put on a relatively better show, they said.
“The chief trigger could be the normal ties with US,” believes a leading analyst Ahsan Mehanti “and until it is around as diplomatic efforts indicate there may not be a major breakthrough in the future performance of the bourse.”
He said the Senate freeze on $700m aid and some other such punitive steps may be around in future but investors are still foreseeing a return of normalcy in the political ties with the US. Another leading analyst Ashraf Zakrai said the fall in the benchmark and the rebound the very next day reflects that there is nothing with basic corporate triggers and some of them are still at work as was reflected by the performance of the broader market.
“The market has the capacity to steal a breather in the most trying conditions and the year-end portfolio adjustments and corporate announcements could put it back on the rails before the year is out,” he believes.
Prominent gainers were led by Attock Petroleum and Al-Ghazi Tractors, up by Rs13.12 and 8.43, while major losers included Nestle Pakistan and Unilever Pakistan, off by Rs82.79 and 9.91.
Traded volume fell to 34.960m shares from the previous 41m shares but gainers managed to hold a modest edge over the losers at 106 to 102, with 96 shares remaining pegged at the last levels.The active list was led by Engro Corporation, off Rs1.06 at 104.03 on 3.711m shares followed by Fatima Fertiliser, easy by 30 paisa at 22.10 on 3.256m shares, National Bank, off 87 paisa at 40.49 on 2.281m shares, Nishat Mills, higher by Rs1.34 at 41.43 on 2.116m shares, Fauji Fertiliser sharply higher by Rs4.62 at 156.79 on 2.011m shares, Lotte Pakistan, lower 24 paisa at 9.03 on 1.489m shares.
