    Misleading headline. The bloggers at Pakwheels should undergo a crash course on English (report writing) and meaning of 'plummet' should be explained in detail!

    A 7% month on month change can be called sales 'reduced', 'decreased', 'trimmed', 'stagnated', 'declined', 'lowered' or 'tapered'. Hardly qualifies for a sales 'drop' or 'fall' let alone 'plummeted' which is even worse.

    P.S. or perhaps PW wants to increase clicks on useless articles with these clickbait titles?
