Equities maintain creeping rally
KARACHI, Jan 17: The shares market on Tuesday maintained its creeping rally on renewed support, aided partly by reports of higher corporate earnings and partly to some positive developments on the political front after the prime minister announced to appear before the apex court in the contempt case.
“The epic constitutional battle may not be nearing an end but has showed signs of first blinking on the part of one of the contenders,” said a leading analyst Ahsan Mehanti, commenting on prime minister’s willingness to appear before the apex court bench.
He said some of the leading investors who could peep through the future political trends were among the trend-setters and were actively followed by the others.
The KSE 100-share index posted a fresh sharp rise of 192.51 points or 1.7 per cent at 11,305.16 as compared to overnight’s 11,112.65 as aided by fresh increase in OGDC followed by active follow-up support.
Index-heavy OGDC and Engro Corporation were among the star performers on the strength of higher earnings and lower rates and sent a wave of optimism in the market evoking sympathetic buying on the other sectors.
But some others think that the market has decided to go alone following its basic fundamentals as ‘tired bulls’ were not inclined to sit on the sidelines for an indefinite period as spectators.
Bulk of the fresh covering purchases again remained confined to fertiliser and leading oil shares, which ensure higher capital gains in normal trading sessions.
“It was a judicious blend of both local and foreign buying,” another analyst Samar Iqbal said and added “the pent-up demand dominating the market for the last four sessions is based on some sound reasoning and not guided by speculative norms.”
Leading gainers were led by Nestle Pakistan and Rafhan Maize, up by Rs138.80 and Rs110.60, while losses on the other hand were modest, prominent losers being Shell Pakistan and Gillette Pakistan, off by Rs2.98 and Rs1.99 respectively.
Turnover figures also showed a modest expansion at 53.112m shares as compared to 27m shares a day earlier as gainers held an active lead over losers at 141 to 90, with 90 shares holding on to the last levels.
The active list was topped by Engro Corporation, sharply higher by Rs4.56 at Rs100.45 on 6m shares followed by Lotte Pakistan, steady 25 paisa at Rs10.02 on 5m shares, SilkBank, easy five paisa at Rs1.63 also on 5m shares, Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim, firm by 52 paisa at Rs44.57 on 4m shares, Fatima Fertiliser up 27 paisa at Rs23.22,also on 4m shares, JS & Co, steady 17 paisa at Rs4.46 on 3m shares and National Bank, up 31 paisa at Rs42.50 also on 3m shares.
They were followed by Hub-Power, firm by 20 paisa at Rs33.89 on 2m shares, Fauji Fertiliser, steady 86 paisa at Rs166.03 on 2m shares and OGDC, sharply higher by Rs4.25 at Rs144.43 also on 2m shares.
