Index attains fresh peak

A bullish trend prevailed on Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) Tuesday supported by reports the Ministry of Finance holding roadshows for $500m foreign inflows through Eurobonds and MSCI Frontier Index re-composition. The benchmark 100-share index rose by 405.59 points or 1.49 percent to close at all-time high of 27,565.5 points, up from 27,159.91 points Monday.

Analysts said stocks closed all-time high on renewed foreign interest in blue-chip oil and banking stocks ahead of the Ministry of Finance''s planned road-shows for $500m foreign inflows through Eurobonds and recomposition of the MSCI Frontier Index. They said that favourable CPI inflation data for Mar''14, which stood at 8.53 percent Year on Year basis, speculations ahead of quarter-end earning announcements and institutional interest in cement and textile stocks on strong valuations played a catalyst role in bullish sentiments at KSE.
