Weekly Market Report Karachi stock Market (From 19th May 2014 to 23rd May 2014

KSEKarachi Stock market observed an entirely dull week all along as per the expectations of last week’s trading activity and investors’ sentiments. Karachi Stock Exchange 100 index closed on 28,756 points after an aggregate loss of 127 points or 0.4 per cent of the volume. The main reason for this slide in  Karachi Stock Exchange-100 index was a huge decline in the share price of Pakistan Tobacco Company Limited (PAKT), OGDCL and Nestle Pakistan as a decline of 9.2%, 0.7% and 2.7% loss respectively. The reason of this uncertainty in the Karachi Stock market was the  federal budget announcement.
