Daily Market Commentary (Securities)

21 June 2013

The FBM KLCI index lost 6.49 points or 0.37% on Friday. The Finance Index fell 0.53% to 16644.32 points, the Properties Index dropped 1.46% to 1372.26 points and the Plantation Index down 3.43% to 8098.05 points. The market traded within a range of 24.83 points between an intra-day high of 1762.49 and a low of 1737.66 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include LUSTER, MAEMODE, LUSTER-WB, MAS, ETITECH, AIRASIA, CLIQ-WA, JCY, SUMATEC and HUBLINE-WA. Trading volume increased to 2052.29 mil shares worth RM3787.63 mil as compared to Thursday’s 1638.00 mil shares worth RM2017.00 mil.

Leading Movers were FGV (+17 sen to RM4.68), PETGAS (+12 sen to RM20.76), ARMADA (+6 sen to RM3.81), PETCHEM (+6 sen to RM6.66) and PETDAG (+6 sen to RM25.18). Lagging Movers were BAT (-160 sen to RM59.50), KLK (-20 sen to RM21.30), HLFG (-14 sen to RM13.96), MAYBANK (-10 sen to RM10.26) and GENTING (-10 sen to RM10.06). Market breadth was negative with 306 gainers as compared to 512 losers.

The KLCI ended moderately lower at 1755.85 points despite recorded loss of 15.6 points at the opening bell. Our local bourse took a nosedive in tandem with the weaker overseas bourses amid continued concern about the scaling back of bond purchases by Federal Reserve later this year. The KLCI has sunk to an intra-day low of 1737.66 points by losing a massive 24.68 points. Nevertheless, the KLCI managed to regain some lost ground subsequently, as market jitters faded and attracted bargain-hunting activity. The positive performance of Japan market that was spurred by the weakening Yen also partially helped in supporting investors’ sentiment.

Most Southeast Asian stocks fell on Friday on concerns over the U.S. Federal Reserve's plan to scale back its asset-buying programme, but late bargain-hunting helped the heavily sold emerging region recoup
some losses.  

After a choppy session, Jakarta's Composite Index ended down 2.5 percent after earlier falling 3.5 percent. It closed at 4,515.37, the lowest in more than four months.

It lost 5.2 percent on the week, the biggest since September 2011, and was the worst performer in the region as the potential  impact of higher fuel prices on inflation and the economy
further dented the weak market mood.

 "The fuel price hike is short-term pain but longer-term gain," said Harry Su, head of research at broker Bahana Securities in Jakarta.

"In the short term, inflation and interest rates would rise, but at the same time this should allow for our currency to strengthen, helped also by improved current account deficit due to less oil imports," he said.
Technical indicators also showed Indonesian shares were ripe for a correction after a rally of almost 9 percent from a low of 4,500 level on June 12 to around the 4,900 level in intra-day trading early this week, according to brokers in Jakarta.

Other sharemarkets had a poor week after the Fed's explicit signal on slowing the pace of its bond-buying programme, known  as quantitative easing.

 The Thai SET index   closed down 0.12 percent at 1,400.50, bouncing back after late buying and trimming its losses on the week to 4.4 percent. Philippine shares fell 2.3 percent on the day, losing 0.96 percent in the week.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
