PSX Closing Bell: The Aftermath…

June 24, 2022 (MLN): Domestic equities witnessed huge selling pressure after the announcement of a 10% super tax imposed on the large-scale industry in a bid to shore up revenues for supporting the country's poor amid rising inflation. The benchmark KSE-100 index lost 1,665.18 points to conclude the day’s trade at 41,051.79, observing an intraday low of 40,555.41.

Investors reacted negatively to the announcement of the imposition of supertax and its impact will continue, Ahsan Mehanti, Director of Arif Habib Group said.

Fahad Rauf, Head of Research at Ismail Iqbal Securities told Mettis, “The tough calls are the need of the hour, however, burdening the existing taxpayers is not the way out.”

Meanwhile, the absence of fresh inflows and fast depleting foreign exchange reserves have further dented the investors’ confidence.
