Share prices take a plunge at Pakistan Stock Exchange

The Pakistan Stock Exchange on Thursday recovered some of the losses suffered this week as the KSE-100 Index closed at 40,676.92 after gaining 105.44 points.

However, 204 companies, the majority of those available for trading, saw their share prices going down further. But the value of 135 entities was up with no change for the remaining 17.

Amid the uncertainty in the market and the resultant selloff, the volume stood at 371,732,175 shares.

That’s why Hascol Petroleum Limited, which was again the most active stock with 67,646,000 shares traded, had its share price further reduced by 7.48 percent. The same was the case with six other companies which were among the top 10 most active stocks.
