  Pakistan Stock Market: FY15 Review & Outlook




TODAY, on 29th November. Market still has lot of opportunities to gain, with some good initiatives taken by Government of Pakistan (GoP), along with it has been trading at (P/E = 8.5x).

After impressive movement in term of index gain, and some average movement in term of volume, market looked to wait for some news, and their wait was over, when GoP announced incentive packages to Investors and Traders. So the market except routine or technical correction, and have nothing to lose, this would strength the chance of third tier shares expected to move in coming 15 day.

As per my analysis, market deemed to get initially some slightly negative movement, but will get some good support later on. The market is expected to be on bullish trend and move between -85 points to +316 points.


But today is also a future settlement, so market might not reflect some positivity, as the day end, but all in all, good weeks are coming after few corrections.


BYCO, NCL, PPL, DOL, FFBL, FFC, LOTCHEM, AHCL, KESC etc. (long term hold, at least till Feb 2014).


DFSM, NIB, KOIL, JPGL, etc (some rally expected in upcoming weeks. These all are solely my predictions, so consider your dealers too.)
