Masood Textile Mills (MSOT) – the stock needs a breather!


Masood Textile Mills (MSOT) is a large textile composite company encompassing activities from spinning to processing to finishing to ready-made garments. It is located in Faisalabad, the epicenter of the textile industry of Pakistan. The company has a large clientele including brand names like Ralph Lauren, Levi’s, Kohl’s, Walmart, Aeropostale, Puma, Jockey, Dockers, Adidas, Nautica and others.
Recently, Shandong Ruyi Technology Group, a Chinese company has expressed its intention to acquire majority shareholding in Masood Textiles. It is going to be the first such investment by China in the textile industry of Pakistan. Masood Textile Mill is the 7th largest listed textile mill with assets of over PKR19bn. Revenues of the company have exhibited a growth of ~24% (5yr CAGR) over 2008-13 to reach PKR23bn. MSOT posted return on equity (ROE) of 18% and return on assets (ROA) of 4.7% in 2013. Its debt to equity stood at 74:26 as posted on KSE’s website. MSOT recorded a payout of 11% or PKR1.75/share as dividend last year.
Textile exports have grown by 7.5% over the first 4 months of the current fiscal year (July-Oct) compared to last year. Continued growth in the yarn business and rupee depreciation can easily lead to a 10% growth in Masood Textiles’ turnover during 2014 and earnings per share (EPS) of over PKR16.5/share. The recent rally in the stock price (on the acquisition announcement) has led to its forward price-to-earning (PER) ratio to climb to 4.7x from 3.5x a week earlier. News regarding GSP Plus status has further triggered the textile sector at the bourse.
I believe the stock should take a breather here considering that it is currently trading at par with the bigger names based on multiples. Additionally it is also trading at close to its book value (PKR85/share).

How to keep your self motivated?




I have been working since 8.5 years in my professional life and there were times again and again when I wanted to just finish with my dreams .. forget about it and go wander streets..

How ever; I manage to ponder some points for every one out there which can help you keep your self motivated, no matter what the circumstances are!

So Here you go:

1) Get rid of distractions

Block your Facebook account or better temporary close it if that helps.

If you want people in your surroundings to be quite while you work and they are noisy make sure to tell them as most of us don't communicate and just keep hating the other person. Better; ask your manager to allow you to change the place (if you are the lucky one)

There can be many other distractions but all you need to do is to some how true to your JOB!

2) Achievable Goals

Make sure to make achievable goals

Don't think you can achieve all in one day, you cannot work can never be finish; make sure your goals are achievable with in stipulated time

3) Always remain positive

No matter what happens, no matter your manager gave you shit, be proud of your self and always try to be the best with your work. If its healthy criticism just take it and be better. If you think they are wrong then don't react as the time will come when you will proof them wrong!

4) Award yourself

Be Proud, be happy, when ever you achieve your goal, make your self like damm man you are good .. reward your self!

In the end, will say only one thing:

"BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO BE"

Nokia Pakistan Becomes the Top Brand on Facebook with 1 million fans



What is fan page and why creating a facebook fan page for your business?

In today's world facebook page works as a primary level communication with your customer. In the past web page was enough but today two way communication matters most. In addition to 2 way communication facebook page empower your customers to share the new models with their friends and family via their facebook account, so you getting publicity of your product for almost nothing. Expert says and I quote "The biggest advantage of facebook fan page is that it deepens customer relationship".


Nokia Facebook FanPage now have a Million Fans in less 10 months. What does it means? It means, It is now engaging Million Pakistani fans via their facebook and making sure that they getting all the latest information, deals and any other happening with Nokia Pakistan. Interestingly one of my friend says that he updated a feed back via Nokia Pakistan page and he got response immediately. (isn't that we all are looking for?) Currently Pakistan have around 7.5 million facebook users and Nokia is now able to cover 1 Million of them which is a big achievement.

Current trend and statistic in Pakistan:



Haseeb Ihtisham, Head of Marketing - Nokia MENA says:

“We are thoroughly pleased with the growing excitement around Nokia Pakistan on Facebook. For us,
achieving 1 million fans of our Facebook page is a proof that Nokia continues to deliver an exceptional
communications experience to consumers. It also reflects the fact that Nokia has been able to
successfully connect with Nokia fans across Pakistan on a personal level,”

Event started with introduction of djApportunity which is same that empowering our youth to create more and more apps and giving them platform a global exposure and resources, thus helping them in all possible ways to make sure they become successful.

Some facts about this year programme of "App mein kitna hay dum" This year most of the apps were submitted by students from Karachi University. 83 apps were completed and were submitted and all were registered. 1700 plus registrants from 8 universities of Pakistan. I personally think it will cross 140 next year.

After this lot if intro's the guy running the show kept the event interesting on tried his level best to keep event interesting lol.. kher moving forward Panel discussion on "Future of mobile Apps" very interesting questions and answers.

After that a competition to find all the QR codes was there. Scavenger hunt and one of ma buddy won!!!. Moving forward quiz and later gift ceremony to those who were able to sell most of the apps or were able to make quiet interesting apps and then food.

Why you should buy DID numbers from DIDx?




Why should your company buy DID numbers from DIDx and not from tons of other DID seller out there?

One of the most prominent reason is that DIDx is the pioneer when it comes to DID numbers. DIDx was the first one to come up with an idea of one platform for the convenience of buyers and sellers.

The biggest advantage of buying numbers from DIDx is that you just need to sign agreement with DIDx and you will be able to get your hands on numbers from all the Tier1 Telecom Companies out there? Let's now look at the picture if DIDx was not there? shall we?

If DIDx was not there then ABCTel.com who is smb void provider have to go to XO, Level 3, Biggest provider in Germany and other places. Negotiate a better price with them, Interop with them, Signing document with them after which only you will be able to purchase numbers from them. Once you will purchase number its not necessary that you have ready customer waiting for you, so you will keep on paying them wether your numbers are sold or not.

DIDx gave all of us a convenience where by signing just one document with DIDx you will be able to purchase the numbers from all the companies via DIDx. Bonus part is that you will be able to show DIDx numbers on your web site by integrating our API on your website.

So what are you waiting for? welcome to DIDx family in advance!!!

N9 Launch introduction to Bloggers!

I wanted to write this post since 2 weeks now but hell I am a super lazy person :)

The other day I was invited as a blogger to come and witness the N9 launch in Sheraton Karachi by Mr. Henri Mattila, Solution Marketing Manager, Nokia MEA.

N9 the pricing set for N9 is  PKR. 52,000/- with 16GB and is now available in White color. The good part about colors is that now you don't have to worry that much about scratches because even after the scratch the color will remain same as there is no paint job this time

Some of the key features for N9:

MeeGo OS v1.2 Harmattan - Linux based
Gorila Glass  Anti-glare polarizer they say this glass is used in fighter copters
Weight only 135 gm
BuiltIN NFC now this was really cool, touch other device which is NFC enabled and there you go its paired and Henri said its also cross platform enable meaning doesn't matter if other device is not Nokia the nfc technology will still work

Over all, its a good phone and I think one should buy. Pictures below:

HyperStar in Karachi!

I wanted to share this post because I was very excited to see this huge mart in Karachi

The other day me and my friend were passing from Afridi INN in Karachi and we were going towards hotnspicy roll corner and we saw this HyperStar Logo which resembles carrefour logo. I was like what the hell, why I didn't knew about it and then I saw many cars going inn and we decided to go as well.

Kher jee, we parked the car and went inside the mall Dolmen City where HyperStar is opened and then I saw the counters and I was convinced carrefour have to do some thing with him and I asked one of the employee bhai is this carrefour or hyper star? and his replied was yes; its a merger b/w two and I am still not sure wether he was right or wrong

Moving forward, we started from the electronics section and we spent 3 hours surveying store and we were like very nice now we don't need to waste our time in electronics market and ask for discount e.t.c. because the BEST possible pricing with best possible deals was available there so my tension of going to Electronic market was over. I saw the pricing of shaver and LCD and I know there was a difference of 1000 rupees with free delivery by HyperStar to any where in Karachi. Same goes for Spice market, Auto market and I was finally able to see Red Sniper Fish there which I was not able to find any where easily and such huge CRAB for (Crab Lovers) :)

So Guyz what are you waiting for they have outlet now in Karachi and Lahore go check out and now you don't need to go to any other market!

The Beard Poem -

I have not written this poem but I liked it so much that I wanted to share this on my blog:

the Beard Poem
Post by abdulrafiq on Sept 17, 2005, 7:42pm

THIS POEM WAS WRITTEN BY A BROTHER....CARRY ON READING YOU'LL KNOW WHAT I MEAN, ITS ABOUT A BEARD....

Context of poem

I came to eat dinner in my halls of residence one day last year when two sisters started laughing at me;I had some food stuck in my beard. They went on to innocently and honestly mock my beard saying it was messy, unnatural and unhygienic. Little did they know the rage that I felt as a result of this and I channeled this rage byunleashing my anger through my pen and out came this poem.

I performed this poem in the Leicester University/DMU Islamic Societies and Eid Celebration and it was received with much laughter and acclaim - Alhamdulillah. Due to popular demand and many requests I have decided to type my poem up and email it to my friends in Islam. Let me remind you all not to be offended as this is no fatwa or religious statement - just a funny poem that spontaneously was produced as a result of my unfortunate experience...

Tushar (12th March 2001)

Glorified be He who beautifies women with long locks of hair
And Men with long beards
There is beauty in the beard
Aye, there is beauty in the beard!
When the lion roars all the animals submit?
For the lion is the king of the jungle
The lion with its glorious mane
And a Muslim man grows his mane in pride
Showing the rest of humanity that he is to be respected
Can one imagine a lion without its mane?
Nay, thou canst not!
Then imagine a man without his beard

Woe to worldly women who mock the beards so!
Desiring husbands with clean shaven faces
Woe to women who mock the Prophets Sunnah
In the name of hygiene, neatness and smooth texture
Indeed the women of this world cannot like the beard
But she who wants Paradise adores the beard!

A beard is a gift given to man
Something only he can grow; a woman never can!
When he ponders, he gently strokes it;
When he eats, it stores food;
When he is with kids, they play with it adoringly;
When he is with his wife, she fondles it lovingly;
When the enemy see it, fear is struck in their hearts!

Ah! there is indeed beauty in the beard!
All the Prophets had beards - yes they did!
Muhammad had a beard - so big! so big!
All the companions had beards - o yes! o yes!
All the sages had beards - I know! I know!
All the wise have beards - tis true! tis true!
All the pious have beards - you see! you see!
All the Muslims have beards!? - if only! if only!
Who did not have beards? The kafirun!
Who had clean shaven faces? The kafirun!
Who grew their moustaches? The kafirun!

"And what did our Prophet order?" I here you ask
He ordered us to lengthen the beard and trim the moustache!
Lengthen the beard and trim the moustache!
What greater reason that this can there be
The fact that our Prophet told us to see
That we make ourselves appear to the world
As full bearded men with honour untold
O Muslim brother! Why do you desire to look like a woman
When your blessed facial hair is the differece between you and the opposite gender?

O poor Muslim brother! Why do you imitate the kafir
Instead of following the Prophet of Islam?
O silly Muslim sister! Why are you so blind?
Infatuated with Bollywood actors who have no mind!
O wretched sister! Are you not scared of your choice?
You would rather have a feminine monkey instead of an exalted manly ape!

So indeed I love my beard
And adore the curls and tangles
Which no oil, gel or superglue can ever straighten
My glorious long, curly, messy, fluffy beard!
The playhouse for kids;
The envy of Malaysian people
And the beloved of Allah!
I maybe rejected by worldly women because of this hair on my face
But who care! For my Mum loves it and she puts all such sisters to disgrace!
Be patient Muslim brothers, who shun the trendy look for a Prophetic pose
Paradise with the wide eyed Houris is our final abode!!!!!

Oh ALLAH, I almost sold you for a quarter!

I just got this and I wanted to make sure to share it!

Brothers and sisters in Islam,

Several years ago, an Imam from out-of-state accepted a call to a Mosque in Houston, Texas.

Some weeks after he arrived, he had an occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a quarter too much change.

As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'You'd better give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it.' Then he thought, 'Oh, forget it,
it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never miss it.

Accept it as a 'gift from ALLAH' and keep quiet.' When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and then he handed the quarter to the driver and said, 'Here, you gave me too much change 'The driver, with a smile, replied, 'Aren't you the
new Imam in town?' 'Yes' he replied.
'Well, I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at the mosque.'

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, held on, and said, 'Oh ALLAH, I almost sold you for a quarter.'

Our lives are the only Quran some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Muslims, and will put us to the test! Always be on guard -- and remember -- You carry your IMAN on your shoulders when you call yourself 'Muslim.'

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Important Security tips for linux

1) Use strong Passwords: We can't stress this one enough: Use strong
passwords! One of the first actions many people do when after they install
their PBX, is often to create a phone extension with an easy password. Avoid
using short or weak extension passwords. Please remember to use passwords of
at least 8 characters, including a mix of upper and lower case along with
digits. Remember to change them periodically every 2-3 months at most.

2) Public Internet: Avoid leaving your PBX systems, ATA Adapters and IP
Phones open to the internet. Do not use DMZ mode on your router and do not
forward ports to your equipment, unless you absolutely know what you are
doing. This is only needed on specific cases, and only leave it open to the
internet if you have experience on how to properly manage security on
equipment that is open to the internet.

3) Asterisk Tweak: If you are using an Asterisk based PBX, add the
following line to the sip.conf file under the [general] section and issue a
reload
alwaysauthreject = yes

What this parameter does, is that it will always return an authentication
error instead of a .404 not found:., even when the extension doesn't exist.
This steps-up the difficulty for brute force scanners when they are
attacking your PBX.

4) Trixbox, PBX In a Flash and other web interface based PBX: Change
the default password. Different flavors of PBX installs come with default
administration passwords. Make sure to change the default passwords
immediately after your installation and also make sure the web interface is
not reachable from the internet.

5) PBX Dial Plan: Do you make international calls? If no, do not allow
international calls to be placed from your PBX. In Asterisk, remove ._011..
Or .00_. . Never use ._... If you are only calling a few countries on a
regular basis, enable these countries only. For example: The only country
you're calling is UK? Only configure _01144. In your dialplan.

6) Use additional caution while travelling: Do you plan on using a soft
phone at a random internet cafe? Make sure you remove your login details
after using it, and uninstall the software if possible.

7) Asterisk and Fail2ban: As an additional step you can install an
additional security tool such as fail2ban, which is a free brute force
detection system, it scans the log files of your PBX and then takes action
based on the entries of those logs.
