BR Research: All


This thriving progress of Islamic banking industry has inspired many conventional bankers to gradually steer their focus towards Islamic products. Keeping in mind the growing demand for such products, one of SBPs latest publications titled "Knowledge, attitudes and practices of Islamic banking in Pakistan" is an instructive read.
There was nothing too exciting about financial performance of Attock Groups refineries for 1QFY15. Where National Refinery Limited (KSE: NRL) plunged into losses once again, Attock Refinery Limited (KSE: ATRL) slipped by almost 100 percent in earnings.
Attock Petroleum Limited (KSE: APL) has been the largest beneficiary of the increasing petroleum sales of late. Even the September floods did not slow down oil sales, especially for APL. This augmentation in petroleum volumes can be seen in APLs revenue growth of 17 percent year-on-year in its 1QFY15 performance.
Looking at the bottom line, Jubilee General Insurance (KSE: JGICL) is doing alright. But when it comes to core insurance business, the financial picture is not so pleasing. Yet, despite deteriorating underwriting profit, the company concluded nine-months ended September 2014 with a profitability growth of 7 percent.
Its yet another period of declining profitability for Pakistan Reinsurance (KSE: PAKRI). The company closed nine-months ended September 2014 on a lackluster note with its profitability undergoing a decline of 18 percent year-on-year. Exchange losses and falling income from investments are known to be the culprits.
That Pakistan International Airline is making losses isn really news. But that its losses dropped by 21 percent year-on-year in the quarter ended September 2014 should make it to the news - and by some stretch of imagination a good news.
Kudos to Miftah Ismail for pulling off the Board of Investment’s (BOI) International Investment Conference held in Islamabad this week – BOI’s first in recent history. Pakistan needs investment inflows, and it’s a good strategy to also invite prospective investors to the country under one platform than just go about making sales pitches all over the world.
