Pick up your pace: Imports not the only issue denting local car sales
The Express Tribune Blogs - about 3 years
KARACHI:  An argument often put forward for the low volume of car sales on imported ones is proving to be a wrong one. While car imports have declined significantly in the last 12 months, sale of local ones has not picked up as expected. By now, it has become apparent that there exists a problem with the local car industry with their declining sales not just depending on the  ‘heavy’ import of used cars. Import restrictions have dented sales of imported cars as they declined by a massive 62% in the last six months (Jul-Dec 2013). However, contrary to expectations, sales of locally-produced cars jumped by a meager 6.5% during the same period. Sales of locally-produced cars reached 61,252 units in the first six months of fiscal year 2014 (FY14) compared to 57,540 in the same period of last year. On the other hand, car imports declined to 11,263 from 29,576 units in the same period. Analysts believe the sales of locally-produced cars will in ...

Market Watch: Another dull day due to adverse security situation
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI:  Activity was subdued as investors remained cautious because of the deteriorating law and order situation. However, the market still managed to close in black as positive corporate news feeds kept the buying momentum to carry on. The Karachi Stock Exchange’s (KSE) benchmark 100-share index rose 0.11% or 17.81 points to end at 16,251 point level. “The local bourse closed higher led by second-tier stocks in cement, textile and oil sectors on strong valuations and news flows amid concerns for rising circular debt in energy sector,” said Ahsan Mehanti, analyst at Arif Habib Corporation. The textile sector was positive over the news of healthy export figures released by the government. Textile exports were $4.39 billion in the four months of fiscal 2013, growing 4.78% compared to $4.19 billion in the corresponding period last year, data from Pakistan Bureau of Statistics shows. Following the news, Nishat Chunian hit its upper circuit, up ...

Local car sales drop to 15-month low
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI: Local cars sales in September dipped to a 15-month low and stood at just 9,721 units; down 6% if compared to August 2012, monthly car sales data reveals. The continuous decline in car sales has irked local carmakers who believe that this is happening mainly because of a surge in imports of used cars. Leading carmakers say that are compelled to stop factory operations for 10 to 15 days a month owing to low car sales in the country. Indus Motor Company’s (IMC’s) Senior General Manager, Sales and Marketing, Ali Asghar Jamali said that his factory operations were shutdown down for 10 days in September, and that the management has planned to reduce production by at least 50% in October, November and December. IMC is also taking a big hit because the company has discontinued the Diahatsu Cuore, an economy segment car whose market is being taken over by similar imported used cars. During the first quarter of the current fiscal year, Indus Moto ...

The Express Tribune Blogs - almost 5 years
KARACHI:  Car sales continued to ride on the smooth lane as sales increased 7% in March with the lower segment leading the way and Honda making its way back in the market after three months. Sales stood at 14,469 in March against 13,579 units sold in the same period of the preceding year, according to data released by Pakistan Automotive Manufacturers Association. The country’s largest car assembler Pak Suzuki witnessed growth of 16% on a yearly basis amid demand for all models swelling. Suzuki Mehran and Suzuki Bolan posted growth of 34% and 48% respectively, primarily because of timely deliveries to Punjab on account of its yellow cab scheme, said Summit Capital analyst Sarfraz Abbasi. The provincial government aimed to deliver 7,500 cabs to successful applicants in the first half of the financial year. Meanwhile, Swift sales almost doubled to 5,201 units as the car becomes a serious competitor to take over the throne of the top hatchback ...

These somewhat whimsical, far from definitive lists refer to the original-cast recordings of Broadway musicals, not the musicals themselves. Recordings that transcend their station, however fitfully in some cases, are marked with an asterisk. Only recent CD and cassette reissues of Broadway material in print from the 1950s and 1960s are listed,
