After feasting on meat for three days, most Pakistanis are probably looking to cut down on their intake of the food group in coming days. But a recent report by the Worldwatch Institute (WWI) shows, global meat production and consumption are both scaling down; and for different reasons.
The hissing sound that is being heard in the steel world could be ArcelorMittals stock losing air. The share price of the worlds largest steel producer has gone down by more than 20 percent since the beginning of 2012, and around 80 percent since its peak in 2008.
Suzuki, at the close of the nine-month mark has apparently fared worse than what most analysts were predicting. While on the whole, the firms performance during the last three quarters still remains within the green zone, -with margins going up to five percent at the close of the nine-month mark- the last quarter has been hard on the local market leader.
Dangerously caught in the circular debt mesh, the payables and receivables of the largest state-owned OMC continue to present a dreary picture of its cash position. However, the results of the company published on KSE before Eid show a rebound in profitability for the Company compared to FY12.
It seems like the stellar performance of the cement sector in FY12 is being carried along into the new fiscal year. At least that is what the industry dynamics and results of major companies in the sector allude towards.
If putting up with email spamming wasn annoying enough, Pakistanis have also had to endure a rising incidence of SMS spamming in recent years. Thanks to cheap SMS bundles and near-ubiquitous cellular connectivity, SMS traffic has increased manifold, and with it the spamming problem.
A very few commercial banks in Pakistan today have an Advance to Deposit Ratio (ADR) in excess of 50 percent. And the National Bank of Pakistan is amongst the chosen few, doing what banks are supposed to do. NBPs ADR rose remarkably from 57 percent as at December 31, 2011 to a reasonably high 66 percent as at September 30, 2011 - this comes at a time when its peers are merrily parking their assets in government papers.
