Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-0.8%) recorded its fourth session of decline, dragged down by potential delay in Phase 3 of Covid-19 vaccination programme, coupled with rising Covid-19 cases. The lower liners were downbeat, while the Energy sector (+1.1%) outperformed the negative broader market.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets ended mostly higher as the Dow and S&P 500 climbed 0.3% and 0.1% respectively, boosted by a flurry of stronger-thanexpected corporate earnings. European stockmarkets were buoyed by Eurozone’s IHS Markit Composite PMI that rose to 53.8 in April 2021, while Asia stockmarkets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI declined for the fourth consecutive session due to persistent selling pressure from the foreigners and the broader market may further consolidate as concerns over the expansion of MCO 3.0 to several districts in Johor, Perak and Terengganu, which may dampen the buying interest today. Investors will keep an eye on the overnight policy rate (OPR) announcement by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM). On a side note, the government has launched a RM3.5bn Jaringan Prihatin stimulus package to subsidise data plan subscriptions and mobile device purchases. Commodities wise, oil prices have been rising, boosted by higher fuel demand amid easing of lockdowns in the US and parts of Europe during summer.

Sector focus: We expect the launch of Jaringan Prihatin may shine a light on the telecommunication sector. Besides, we continue to like sectors with high earning certainties amid the pandemic, including essential consumer, packaging and lumber related stocks.

The FBM KLCI saw a fourth consecutive session decline with the EMA20 line tipping downwards. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI was hovering below the 50 level; MACD line is still below the zero level. The resistance is pegged along 1,600-1,620, while the support is set around 1,565, followed by 1,555.
