KSE-100 Index stages smart recovery of 256 points
KARACHI, Dec 20: The shares market on Tuesday staged a smart recovery on active covering purchases at attractively lower levels in fertiliser and oil sectors, aided by strong rumours about early positive changes in the CAPITAL GAINS TAX regime.
Although many were not clear or fathom about the possible changes in the CGT that too at the end of the year, as rumours
have it, everyone tried to ride the bandwagon, putting the market back on the rails just in one go.

A massive increase of 2.30 per cent or 255.91 points at 11,338.04 in the benchmark reflects some may have the information about the changes in the CGT, but others just followed the trend of a highly oversold market.
Fauji Fertiliser whose board meets tomorrow to approve business plan for the next year led the market advance closely followed by Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim; even the Engro Corporation, which has dropped to a new low owing to reported closure of its new urea plant, and MCB were the star performer.
But the index heavy OGDC, which rose by Rs5.58 at 159.41 alone contributed about a half of the total rise, floor brokers said.
“The market has been in a highly oversold position and needed a technical correction at the lower levels,” said a leading analyst Ahsan Mehanti, adding “the rumour-mongers made it successfully look so.”
He said in part the covering purchases may well be a part of year-end portfolio dressing but whether the snap rally extends itself or not, would show the reasons behind the speculative rise.
Analyst Samar Iqbal said the market has been in a highly oversold position because of negative political developments and needed correction alone on technical grounds and that came in from short-covering in selected shares having potential of
quick capital gains.

Top gainers included Nestle Pakistan and Siemens Pakistan, up by Rs116.46 and 36.67, while losers were led by Unilever Foods and Indus Motors, off Rs7.69 and 3.56.
Traded volume rose to 77.801m shares as gainers held a strong lead over losers at 150 to 79, with 81 shares holding on to the last levels.
The actives list was led by WorldCall Telecom, easy by three paisa at 0.81 on 12m shares followed by JS & Co, lower by eight paisa at 4.19 on 11m shares, Engro Corporation, up Rs4.59 at 96.56 on 6m shares, Lotte Pakistan, steady by 45 paisa at 9.52 also on 6m shares, Fauji Fertiliser Bin Qasim, up Rs2.16 at 48.03 on 4m shares, Fatima Fertiliser, higher by Rs1.07 at 22.49 on 4m shares and DG Khan Cement, higher 90 paisa at 19.00 on 4m shares.
Azgard Nine followed them, up 36 paisa at 3.46 on 3m shares, Fauji Fertiliser, sharply higher by Rs4.88 at 154.86 also on 3m shares and MCB, up Rs3.44 at 140.70 on 3m shares.
