Daily Market Commentary (Securities)

26 June 2013

The FBM KLCI index gained 12.12 points or 0.70% on Wednesday. The Finance Index increased 0.77% to 16446.12 points, the Properties Index up 1.45% to 1332.83 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.76% to 8293.77 points. The market traded within a range of 19.82 points between an intra-day high of 1744.64 and a low of 1724.82 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include LUSTER, MAS, SKPETRO, TA, LUSTER-WA, LUSTER-WB, TAGB, IRIS, MAYBANK and TMS. Trading volume decreased to 1439.45 mil shares worth RM2422.18 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 1599.07 mil shares worth RM2851.64 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+44 sen to RM58.74), GENTING (+43 sen to RM10.30), HLFG (+24 sen to RM13.74), MISC (+20 sen to RM5.12) and PETDAG (+12 sen to RM25.10). Lagging Movers were TM (-1 sen to RM5.43), IHH (-1 sen to RM3.88) and ASTRO (-1 sen to RM2.99). Market breadth was positive with 577 gainers as compared to 195 losers.

The local bourse shaved yesterday’s losses by inching up 12.12 points to close at 1,740.76 in tandem with the regional positive tone with the exception of Japanese bourse. The Finance and Plantation Indexes were the major gainers among others, edging up 125.41 and 62.34 points respectively predominantly led by Hong Leong Financial, AMMB, Maybank and IOI Corp. We opine that certain investors took this chance to do some bargain hunting while fears have allayed on news from China’s central bank to continue offer short-term funds to banks if needed.

Across the region, the bourses recovered from yesterday’s losses except Japanese market which continued to hinge on China’s cash crunch while pending for direction from the upper house elections next month. The region’s recovery were also aided by a late recovery in Chinese stocks from recent hefty losses and comments by top Federal Reserve officials that alleviated fears of an imminent end to its stimulus.

Most Southeast Asian stocks rebounded on Wednesday from their multi-month lows, led by the Philippines, as the Chinese central bank's assurance of more funds to banks facing a credit squeeze and optimistic U.S. economic data boosted market sentiment.

The Philippines' main index, which has plummeted 17.6  percent in June alone, jumped 5.7 percent to recover from more than a six-month low hit in the previous session. The index recorded its highest percentage gain since Nov. 25, 2008.  

The People's Bank of China said late on Tuesday it had provided cash to some institutions facing temporary shortages and would continue to do so if needed, seeking to tame investor jitters amid spiking money market rates that raised fears of a banking crisis.

The region's markets have been on a falling trend with foreign investors exiting ever since the U.S. Federal Reserve hinted at plans to scale back its bond repurchases.
"There has been a misinterpretation on what (Fed chief) Ben Bernanke has said on scaling back its stimulus. That, along with strong economic fundamentals of the Philippines economy, helped for a healthy recovery," a Manila-based senior analyst said on condition of anonymity.  

Manila saw net foreign outflows of $43 million in shares despite the strong gains.

The Thai SET index gained for a second session, rising 2.9 percent to a one-week closing high, led by financials, while Indonesia's broader index jumped 3.8 percent despite $15.7 million in foreign outflows on Wednesday.  

Singapore's Straits Times Index edged up 0.5 percent, led by property stocks after some brokers issued positive reports on companies in the sector.  
Vietnam edged up 0.1 percent, snapping a four-session losing streak despite $6.3 million in foreign outflows and an unstable investor sentiment, while Malaysia gained 0.7 percent.

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
