Karachi Stocks gain 52 points, volume falls
KARACHI, Oct 15: Stocks ended higher on Monday despite selling in the energy sector as investors accumulated cement shares in anticipation of healthy corporate results due to be announced in the coming days.
The KSE 100-share index rose 0.34pc, or 52.69 points, to 15,746.90 points. Volume fell to 81.89 million shares, compared with 113.12 million shares traded on Friday.
Analysts attributed the fall in turnover due to the commencement of re-composition of the index into free-float methodology as it truly reflected the activity.
The free-float methodology is regarded as a better way of calculating market capitalisation as it provides a more accurate reflection of market movements.
Trading value stood at Rs3.03 billion, compared with Rs4.59 billion in the previous trading session but market capitalisation increased to
Rs3.96 trillion from Friday’s Rs3.94 trillion.

“Some recovery was seen at the local bourse mainly led by cement stocks. With free float index in place the overall volatility declined due to new weightages,” said Samar Iqbal, a dealer at Topline Securities.
Maple Leaf Cement and DG Khan Cement dominated Monday’s turnover and ended 63 paisa higher at Rs9.32 and 59 paisa higher at Rs50.98 respectively.
Topline Securities expect DGKC to post a profit of Rs1.1bn (EPS of Rs2.5) in the first quarter of 2012-13, compared to net earnings of Rs318m (EPS of Rs0.7) during same period last year. The estimates do not include any deferred tax impact and hence any change in tax may deviate earnings. EPS is expected to increase mainly due to a rise in cement prices.
“Exploration and Production sector did face some off-loading but presence of buyers at intervals restricted any major fall,” said Hasnain Asghar Ali, COO at Escorts Capital.
There was selling in the E&P sector following a fall in international oil prices on worries over weak global oil demand tempered positive Chinese and US data.
Oil and Gas Development Co Ltd ended 70 paisa lower at Rs175.89, Pakistan Oilfield fell Rs1.17 to Rs415.23 and Pakistan Petroleum Ltd shed 49 paisa to Rs174.49.Foreign investors bought shares worth a net $1.39 million, compared with $1.02 million on Friday, bringing the total net buying for this month to $23.09 million. Banks were the major sellers of equity with $2.44 million.
The market capitalisation based KSE 30-index gained 0.18 per cent, or 23.84 points, to close at 12,927.22 points.
