Analysts at Arif Habib Limited said many a measure taken by the Government bode well for the listed entities in general. However, the positivity of buyers met an equally strong selling pressure that moved from Fertilizer Sector to OMCs, Chemical and Cable.

 

The apparent beneficiaries of mini-budget faced an ill-fate in the sense that both PAEL and STCL, which had specific benefits announced in their favour remained red the entire session, barring the initial exuberance.

 

PIBTL led the volume table, hit upper circuit with a total volume of 30M shares, followed by BOP that lagged behind in terms of price performance. ISL received heavy bantering by the end of session and hit lower circuit.
