BR Research: All


The Overseas Investors Chamber of Commerce and Industry has recently released the findings of its Perception and Investment Survey 2011. The survey which represents the collective voice of foreign investors in the country reiterates what many already know: that the law-and-order situation in the country and the energy deficit continue to be the biggest challenges facing the economy.
Breaking away from the usual trend, the Treasury bill auction held on Wednesday failed to garner adequate funds. With investors eyeing higher yields, there seems to be a strong disagreement between the borrower and the lenders.
The countrys largest E&P Company OGDCL said its 1HFY12 earnings improved by 32 percent versus the corresponding period of last year. Yet, the scrip price dipped by Rs.3.5/share as the earnings were below the market consensus estimates.
In the recent result season almost all the FMCGs have shown healthy top line growth. Same is the case for National Foods.
PTCL, the telecom giant of Pakistan, is a company in transition. If the preceding five years were the years of transforming the formerly state-run organisation from within, the coming years would have been dubbed by the management as years of consolidation and diversification of revenue streams.
Corporate results are pouring in. Largely in line with market expectations, United Bank Ltd (UBL), the countrys third largest commercial bank, managed to record outstanding growth in its bottom line in CY11 compared to the last year.
FY12 commenced on a good note for local car manufacturers, as from the very start a strong demand for cars is being seen, primarily due to the reduction in levies like GST and SED. The spike in demand stayed throughout 1HFY12, and local car makers were able to sell 72,000 cars in the period, 21 percent higher than the same period in the corresponding year.
