#1 A sudden drop in American aid money, perhaps?

#3 Well if the CEO moves on my suggestions,

(rendition of AQ Khan to US custody, ban Madrassas, kill/capture Taliban and Al-Qaeda, clean-up the ISI, and a number of others)

I might bump my recommendation to Accumulate. But until then, Pakistan's a Sell

#4 I guess the Bush visit had *something* to do with the crash - i.e. Musharraf felt the need to bolster his anti-Taliban credentials by launching an offensive in Waziristan, which became a little more involved than the markets were expecting. If he ever sorts the area out, I expect the markets will rebound. Because he'll be able to re-direct the troops that are currently tied down in the Northwest Frontier Province to prevent the kind of sectarian (inter-ethnic) violence that keeps occurring in the rest of Pakistan.

#5 It is important to note that the government takes credit whenever the market delivers and disassociates it with the economic outlook when it does not. Hmmmm. Right out of the Clintons'
playbook. Take credit when thing go well and place the blame somewhere else when things are rotten.
