A Quick Recovery Seen

  • The FBM KLCI slid into the red, weighed down by the weakness in selected banking heavyweights despite the positive sentiment in offshore markets. The majority of the lower liners also retreated, with the exception of the FBM Fledging (+0.2%), while seven-of-twelve sectors in broader market were also in the red.
  • Market breadth was negative as losers edged the winners on a ratio of 453-to- 401 stocks, while 412 stocks traded unchanged. Traded volumes fell 7.7% to 2.94 bln shares amid the profit-taking activities.
  • Significant Main Board decliners were Nestle (-90.0 sen), Hong Leong Bank (- 38.0 sen), CIMB (-14.0 sen), Maxis (-12.0 sen) and Petronas Dagangan (-10.0 sen). Other underperforming stocks, meanwhile, include Malaysian Pacific Industries (-16.0 sen), BAT (-10.0 sen), Telekom Malaysia (-10.0 sen), United Plantations (-10.0 sen), Khind (-7.0 sen) and KLCC (-7.0 sen).
  • On the opposite side of the trade, BLD Plantations (+32.0 sen) led the broader market gainers, alongside Panasonic Manufacturing (+28.0 sen), Magni-Tech Industries (+14.0 sen), Atlan (+12.0 sen) and Magna Prima (+9.0 sen), following news of its collaboration with PowerChina Construction Group Ltd for local EPCC tenders. Meanwhile, the only three key-index gainers were Kuala Lumpur Kepong (+8.0 sen), Petronas Chemicals (+2.0 sen) and MISC (+1.0 sen).
  • Key regional stockmarkets ended mostly higher, following the strong rally on Wall Street on expectations of lower interest rates. The Nikkei closed higher, although gains were capped by losses in machinery-related heavyweights ahead of a public holiday on Monday. Similarly, the Hang Seng Index (+0.1%) and the Shanghai Composite (+0.4%) also advanced, albeit the majority of the ASEAN stockmarkets finished mostly lower.
  • Wall Street - the Dow (+0.9%), the S&P 500 (+0.5%) and the Nasdaq (+0.6%) all hit fresh record highs on expectations of lower borrowing rates ahead of the second quarter earnings reporting season.
  • However, key European benchmark indices continued their losing streak, albeit marginally, as investors digested another bout of profit warning from German car manufacturer, Daimler. The FTSE (-0.1%) slipped in the eleventh hour, weighed down by healthcare and energy stocks, alongside the DAX (-0.1%). The CAC, however, bucked the downtrend in its peers and closed 0.4% higher last Friday.

THE DAY AHEAD

  • Friday’s pullback was already on the cards amid the toppish conditions that has lingered after the key index made a near 7.0% gain over a six-week span. Although the technical indicators are still on the retreat, there could be some bouts of bargain hunting activities over the near term in tandem with the strong gains on Wall Street at the end of last week.
  • As it is, global markets are still buoyed by expectations of a U.S. interest rate cut as a pre-emptive move against the slowing economy and this could also allow stocks on Bursa Malaysia to stage a near term turnaround, although we think that the rebound may still be tentative for now amid the lingering overbought conditions. The near term recovery could send the key index to the 1,676 level, before making a pass at the 1,680 level. The supports, meanwhile, are at the 1,660 and 1,657 levels respectively.
  • By and large, the lower liners and broader market shares are still holding firm, sustaining the FBM KLCI’s overbought streak. While we still see a consolidation among the lower liners amid their overbought conditions, the extended overbought streak looks to continue for now with rotational interest set to continue providing the impetus.
