Still Wary

  • The FBM KLCI (-0.8%) snapped a fourday winning streak as the key index started off the week on a dour tone alongside with the weakness across its regional peers. The lower liners - the FBM Small Cap (-0.6%), FBM Fledgling (- 0.8%) and FBM Ace (-0.1%), while only the REIT and healthcare sector outperformed the negative broader market, rising 0.7% each.
  • Market breadth stayed negative as losers outpaced the gainers on a ratio of 597-to-285 stocks. Traded volumes declined 11.9% to 2.42 bln shares amid the negative market sentiment.
  • More than two third of the key index components fell, dragged down by Hong Leong Financial Group (-96.0 sen), followed by Tenaga (-24.0 sen), Malaysia Airport Holdings (-10.0 sen), MISC (-10.0 sen) and CIMB (-8.0 sen). Amongst the biggest decliners on the broader market were Heineken (-70.0 sen), KESM Industries (-66.0 sen), MPI (- 44.0 sen), Carlsberg (-42.0 sen) and Panasonic (-30.0 sen).
  • In contrast, Allianz (+50.0 sen), BAT (+54.0 sen), Shangri-La (+31.0 sen), Fraser & Neave (+30.0 sen) and UWC Holdings (+22.0 sen) led the broader market winner list. Willowglen added 0.5 sen after bagging a three-year contract in Singapore. Meanwhile, Nestle (+70.0 sen), Hartalega (+13.0 sen), Petronas Dagangan (+8.0 sen), Top Glove (+8.0 sen) and Hong Leong Bank (+6.0 sen) advanced on the local bourse.
  • Major Asian equities finished lower on Monday as the Nikkei and Hang Seng Index extended their losses by 0.6% each on the back of the growing concern over the coronavirus impact on global economic growth. The Shanghai Composite (+0.5%), however, extended its’ gains on the back of the strongerthan-expected inflation data. ASEAN stockmarkets, meanwhile, finished mostly lower yesterday.
  • U.S. stockmarkets staged a quick recovery as investors as the Dow climbed 0.6% on the back of a solid set of corporate earnings. On the broader market, the S&P 500 rose 0.7% to close at fresh record high level with only the energy sector (-0.8%) underperformed, while the Nasdaq jumped 1.1% – also scaled to record level.
  • Earlier, major European indices – the FTSE (-0.3%), CAC (-0.2%) and DAX (- 0.2%), all extended their losses, mirroring the weakness in Asia equities. Market sentiment remains downbeat on the back of the developments over coronavirus outbreak that saw death tolls surpassed the SARS virus outbreak over a decade ago.

THE DAY AHEAD

  • Following the string of recovery, the FBM KLCI staged a pullback yesterday as concern over the coronavirus outbreak and the impact towards the global economy returned to the fore. Factories in China are expected to remain shut for a longer period and this may cause disruption to the supply manufacturing supply chain, particularly to ASEAN countries.
  • The insipid market environment is expected to prolong and the key index may continue to remain under pressure with key support pegged at the 1,535 level. On the upside, gains is expected to be choppy with key resistance located at the 1,570 level.
  • Profit taking activities ruled among the lower liners and broader market shares yesterday and we think the process could be still be in the cards after the FBM Small Cap’s 6.9% recovery over the past week. Hence, the negative sentiment on the lower liners is still intact for now and we think the upsides are difficult to come by over the near term.
