7 Nov 2013

The FBM KLCI index gained 3.56 points or 0.20% on Thursday. The Finance Index increased 0.25% to 16719.97 points, the Properties Index up 0.16% to 1312.07 points and the Plantation Index down 0.03% to 8623.54 points. The market traded within a range of 8.15 points between an intra-day high of 1806.61 and a low of 1798.46 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include TMS, NETX, CAP, INSAS, TIGER, SERSOL, SONA-WA, SERSOL-WA, INSTACO-WB and TGOFFS. Trading volume decreased to 1976.91 mil shares worth RM1898.14 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 2121.04 mil shares worth RM2127.66 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+54 sen to RM63.84), PETGAS (+28 sen to RM24.28), KLK (+16 sen to RM23.40), GENM (+15 sen to RM4.55) and DIGI (+6 sen to RM4.93). Lagging Movers were PETDAG (-36 sen to RM30.40), PPB (-20 sen to RM14.28), GENTING (-8 sen to RM10.32), RHBCAP (-5 sen to RM7.74) and FGV (-5 sen to RM4.34). Market breadth was positive with 417 gainers as compared to 362 losers.

The FBM KLCI eked out marginal gain to finish at 1806.61 points, taking little cue from the optimistic US market which reached another record high yesterday. However, local investors were probably cautious to jump in ahead of the Bank Negara Malaysia’s monetary policy meeting as well as the release of September external trade data tomorrow.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index lost 0.53 percent to close at 499.86 points on Thursday as investors booked profit from penny stocks and boosted trading volume, analysts said.    

Volume surged to 106.5 million shares, well above the five-day average of 73 million, based on Reuters data. The index had risen in the previous two consecutive sessions.  

The energy sector lost the most, with shares of PetroVietNam Gas, the country's largest listed firm, falling 1.55 percent.

"But interest in real estate is still high, so the index lost a little," said analyst Doan Thi Anh Nguyet at Saigon-Hanoi Securities. She expected the index to further rise after a few adjustments.

Shares of real estate firm Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp were the most traded on Thursday, gaining 1.59 percent on a volume of 9.5 million stocks.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Thai stocks fell on Thursday after two sessions of gains as players locked in quick profits after the Senate brought forward a reading on the political
amnesty bill to Friday, while Indonesian shares rose for a second day and closed at their one-week high.
Bangkok's SET index closed at 1,425.23, slightly off the day's low. Foreign investors sold a net 567 million baht ($18.13 million), marking a sixth session of selling, stock exchange data showed.

Shares in recent outperformers such as Glow Energy and Minor International led the decline on the large-cap SET50 index.
Thailand's senate will begin deliberations on the bill on Friday, earlier than a plan for Monday. Protesters said they would not stop rallying against the government's blanket amnesty bill even if the Senate rejects the draft.  
A university poll showed consumer confidence in Thailand fell for the seventh month in October.  

Indonesia's key index rose 0.8 percent to 4,486.11, the highest close since Oct. 31, led by PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia and PT Astra International, the conglomerate with interests from banking to autos.
Stronger-than-expected private consumption data in the third quarter bolstered sentiment around consumption-related stocks, while a rise in foreign exchange reserves in October was also supportive, brokers said.  

Stocks in Malaysia pared early losses, with the benchmark index inching up 0.2 percent. The Malaysian bourse said domestic institutions bought a net 142 million ringgit ($44.64 million), while foreign and retail investors sold 134 million  ringgit and 7.5 million ringgit, respectively.

Shares in Singapore, the Philippines and Vietnam edged lower, in line with Asian stock markets ahead of U.S. nonfarm payroll data. 
Among weak spots, shares of Bank of the Philippine Islands dropped 4 percent, the biggest percentage loser on the Philippine index.

A local broker said its board has approved the issuance of shares via a rights offer.

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
