Cement shares help index recover 36 points
KARACHI, Oct 9: Stocks curtailed its losses and ended higher on Tuesday as investors bought cement shares towards the end of the session on hopes of strong corporate earnings for quarter ended Sept 30 and better dispatches for the previous month, dealers said.
The KSE 100-index rose 0.23 per cent, or 36.23 points, to close at 15,688.24 points and recovered from its early losses when it hit its intra-day low at 15,587.83 points.
Volume fell again to 110.96 million shares, compared with 118.93 million shares traded on Monday. Trading value however increased to Rs4.26 billion from Rs3.98 billion the previous day and market capitalisation marginally increased to Rs3.96 trillion, compared with Rs3.95 trillion on Monday.
Investors remained cautious and were unlikely to take fresh position, which was reflected by a drop in the turnover as the market was hovering around its all-time high of 15,789 points hit last week. They will wait for the index consolidates around current levels, dealers said.
“Market started the day under pressure, however, there was a subsequent recovery in the index towards the end of the trading session with recovery led by the cement sector on expectation of healthy offtake numbers for September as one of the factors behind the rally,” said Ayub Ansari, analyst at AKD Securities Limited.
Most of the big cement companies attracted investor interest as DG Khan Cement was the volume leader and ended 4.8 per cent higher, Lucky Cement which was fourth in terms of number of shares traded closed up 3.9 per cent.The heavyweights from the energy sector also showed modest gains which helped the market to end in the green zone. Oil exploration and production companies were up mainly due to a rise in international crude oil futures amid growing tensions between Syria and Turkey and reduced North Sea oil output.
