Stocks hit 5-month low amid fears of standoff on NRO
KARACHI, Jan 12: The shares market on Thursday hit a five-month low as investors adhered to the sidelines most of the time, fearing a standoff between major government institutions on some national issues after the Supreme Court verdict on NRO issue.The KSE 100-share index suffered a fresh modest fall of 21.37 points at 10,909.12 as compared to 10,930.49 a day earlier, being the session`s high.
Owing to active short-covering on selected counters, notably MCB, Fauji Fertiliser and some leading food shares, notably Nestle Pakistan, the loss was limited to a modest proportion for the second session in a row.
Analysts said the develop-ing situation on the political front, notably Supreme Court ruling on the NRO issue, seemed to have triggered a judicious blend of mixed reaction from various quarters.
But what seemed to have steamed out of the market was the uncertainty that has engulfed the market, driving away investors, both local and foreign one for the time being, they said.Wait and see appears to be the hallmark of entire trading pattern, indicating that no one was inclined to take even a calculated risk at this stage, they added.
They feared that a long recession period appears ahead as investors may not opt for covering purchases even at the falling prices andon blue chip counters ensuring higher capital gains.
However, some of the investors ventured to buy some of the leading fertiliser and bank shares under the lead of MCB and some othersbut they failed to change the market psychology.
Leading gainers were led by Nestle Pakistan and TriPack Films, up by Rs17.38 and 4.96, while top losers included Bata Pakistan and Al-GhaziTractors, off by Rs38.75 and 8.48.
Turnover figures fell further to 21.120m shares from the previous 23.057m shares as losers held a modest lead over gainers at 100 to 81, with117 shares holding on to the last levels.
The active list was led by Fauji Fertiliser, easy by eight paisa at Rs43.29 on 3m shares followed by National Bank, off Rs1.07 at 41.81 on 2m shares, Fatima Fertiliser, steady by 15 paisa at 22.98 also on 2m shares, Fauji Fertiliser, higher by Rs173 at 160.71 on 2m shares, KESC, lower 12 paisa at Rs1.76 on 1.276m shares, Engro Corporation, off Rs1.10 at 94.41 on 0.957m shares, and JS & Co, easy one paisa at Rs4.07 on 0.919m shares.
They were followed by TRG Pakistan, steady by five paisa at 1.20 on 0.717m shares, NIB Bank, unchanged at 1.68 on 0.536m shares and Bank of Punjab, easy by four paisa at 5.51 on 0.465m shares.
