The FBM KLCI index gained 10.81 points or 0.62% on Thursday. The Finance Index increased 1.33% to 16665.09 points, the Properties Index up 2.38% to 1364.59 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.10% to 8302.08 points. The market traded within a range of 11.06 points between an intra-day high of 1753.76 and a low of 1742.70 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include LUSTER, ETITECH, MAS, SKPETRO, AXIATA, TA, MAYBANK, NICORP, UEMS and CIMB. Trading volume decreased to 1321.70 mil shares worth RM2193.91 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 1439.45 mil shares worth RM2422.18 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+60 sen to RM59.34), HLFG (+48 sen to RM14.22), PETGAS (+18 sen to RM20.30), MAYBANK (+16 sen to RM10.24) and RHBCAP (+13 sen to RM8.60). Lagging Movers were FGV (-4 sen to RM4.47), PETCHEM (-4 sen to RM6.56), MISC (-4 sen to RM5.08), DIGI (-4 sen to RM4.66) and UMW (-2 sen to RM14.28). Market breadth was positive with 503 gainers as compared to 253 losers.

The local bourse extended gains for the second day in a row after ending at 1,751.57 points or an uptick of 10.81 points. The gains, led by Finance Index with major contributors from heavy weights such as Hong Leong Financial, Maybank, RHB Capital, Public Bank and CIMB Group, inched up 218.97 points. The positive sentiment was in tandem with the region as investors’ fears were assuaged by the possibility of the Federal Reserve extending its stimulus measure. However, we reckon that the encouraging tone might not last long as the risk of tapering stimulus has not completely gone away.

Across the region, the bourses rose second day in a row with the exception of China. The world’s second largest economy has made it clear that the People Bank of China (PBOC) will remain as the last resort, preventing a systemic threat, and will try to improve the liquidity situation, but only gradually. The rally across the globe was sparked by speculation that the Federal Reserve may hold back from reducing stimulus.

Shares in Thailand's largest construction firm Italian-Thai Development Pcl climbed as much as 6.7 percent on expectations that the company's water management project would move forward pending an environmental impact assessment (EIA) despite a court order.

Italian-Thai shares were up 2.86 percent at 5.40 baht after earlier touching 5.60 baht, while the broader SET index is up 1.16 percent.

On June 18, the government selected four winners for the water management projects and other infrastructure work that are expected to drive the economy in the next few years. A consortium led by Italian-Thai won five of the nine contracts with a bid of 109 billion baht.

"The market understands that the water management project is still moving forward, even though it may have to go through a public hearing," said Therdsak Thaveeteeratham, head of research at Asia Plus Securities.

He has a "buy" rating on Italian-Thai shares with a target price of 8.6 baht.

On Thursday, a Thai court ordered the suspension of planned flood control project after a group of environmental activists asked the court to delay the projects pending an EIA and a health impact assessment.

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
