BR Research: All


The cliché, "if you don know where you e going, any road will take you there," is as apt for the current economic regime as it was for the clueless Alice in Wonderland. One glaring aspect of the directionless regime is evident in its continuing indifference towards poverty statistics. For over three years now, Pakistan doesn have any official poverty estimates.
Pakistans external balance sheet is not showing a rosy picture. The deterioration of all the accounts of the balance of payments reflects the lack of economic resilience. The BoP which showed a surplus of $88 million in the 1QFY11 stood at negative $759 million in the first quarter of FY12.
A 55 percent year-on-year growth in Pakistan Oilfields 1QFY12 earnings surprised many - as the market was expecting the profits to increase by not more than 30 percent. The surprise factor was that the company decided to hold back writing off the Chak-Naurang South well (impact Rs438 million), which had not been successful despite repeated efforts to get the results out of it.
Holding licenses for all three telecom segments, it is almost unfathomable that PTCL would witness declines in its financial performance. Yet the companys financial results for the first quarter of the current fiscal year failed to impress analysts and investors alike.
Despite operating in a booming consumer goods industry which is thriving on demand for packaged goods, "Packages Limited" looks increasingly fatigued. The packaging market leader declared net loss for the second successive quarter this year. The financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, released yesterday, tell a story about the companys margins similar to that of recent years.
In 1985 the Norwegian music band, "A-ha" released a music video entitled "Take on me" which showed lead singer Morten Harket reminiscing over his love life as he interacts with moving images of his lover on a sheet of paper. While the song became an instant hit; the concept of an interactive multimedia device only received a baffled response of uh huh from viewers.
Driven by higher operating revenues, Habib Bank Limited (HBL), the countrys second largest commercial bank by deposit size; recorded a 28 percent, year-on-year growth in its bottom line during the first nine months of CY11. HBL, the first of the countrys major banks to report third-quarter earnings, is expected to be an indicator for the performance of the rest of the banking industry.
