Investing in Pakistan ADRs / Pakistan Stocks List
The Pakistan Petroleum Ltd (OTCMKTS: PKKKY) appears to be the only Pakistan ADR trading on a US exchange and it appears to not be actively trading, but American investors could also buy Pakistan GDRs listed in London. Given persistent concerns about stability, many investors may wonder why they would want to buy Pakistan ADRs or GDRs at all, but volatility is not necessarily a bad thing for investors and especially traders who time it right. In fact, the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE) was declared the “Best Performing Stock Market of the World for the year 2002.” Investors interested in investing in Pakistan ADRs should also check our check out our other South Asia investing lists, including our India ADR list and India closed-end fund list as well as our BICK ETF list, BRIC ETF list, China/India ETF list, South Asia ETF list and India ETF list pages.
