Nomura's Top 12 Buy recommendations for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 12 Malaysia equity strategy: Eight reasons to be positive in 2018 We believe Malaysian equities are likely to continue their bullish momentum in 2018, for eight reasons: 1) solid macro and consumption growth 2) continuing foreign inflows amidst positive revisions 3) better corporate balance sheets with dividend upside 4) possible election rally 5) likely net buying by local institutions 6) Malaysia's laggard performance vs peers 7) key concerns on banks getting addressed 8) an appreciating MY ...
The Star Fund Managers' Stock Pick for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 5 The Star Fund Managers' Stock Pick for Year 2018 https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2018/01/20/from-the-fund-managers/
The Star Writers' Stock Pick 2018 WATCHLIST 5 The year 2017 was in general a great one for Bursa Malaysia. The benchmark FBM KLCI was up 9.5% on a year-to-date basis, and stocks across most sectors powered up. The technology sector continued to outperform, supported by expanding earnings and strong news flow, while oil and gas stocks also inched up as oil prices recovered to the US$60 level. So with stocks now trading at higher valuations, getting that undervalued stock pick is becoming harder. What do we buy under the uncertain environme ...

The Edge Weekly's 10 stocks for a pre-election rally WATCHLIST 10 The Edge Weekly's 10 stocks that are a good bet for a pre-election rally
The Edge Financial Daily's Top 10 Stock Picks for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 10 The Edge Financial Daily's picks are based on some of the investment themes that fund managers are exploring in 2018. These themes include the turnaround of the badly hit oil and gas industry where many companies' share prices have tumbled to all-time lows; better corporate earnings growth amid a synchronised global economy recovery; interest rate hikes globally; and a strengthening ringgit. Meanwhile, the e-commerce boom that leads to stronger demand for logistic services and improved c ...
RHB's Top Picks for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 14 The FBM KLCI's recent underperformance reflects its reversion to the mean, fulfilling its reputation as a low beta market. The market's disconnection to macroeconomic realities from a combination of various structural issues cannot be completely resolved. However, as headwinds dissipate post-election - a stronger MYR, higher oil prices, plus broadening of the spillover from the robust external sector kicking in to lift sentiment and corporate earnings - we expect investors to adopt a m ...
Maybank IB Research's Top Buy Picks for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 9 We expect global growth momentum to be sustained in 2018, expanding at +3.6%, the same pace as 2017, on the back of synchronized expansions of G3 economies, which will fuel world trade growth. This, in turn, is positive for ASEAN economies as we see spillover to domestic demand from export recovery. A key macroeconomic theme is the outlook of "benign normalization and unsynchronized unwinding" in major central banks' monetary policies. Key risks are inflation and financial stability ...
CIMB’s top picks for 2018 (Small Caps) WATCHLIST 7 We expect 2018 to be a more volatile and challenging year compared to 2017. Potential challenges include slower GDP growth, cost pressures, competition from disruptive technologies, election cycle and earnings risks from banks and utilities. We expect these concerns to be priced-in in 1H18, and the market should improve in 2H18 due to stronger foreign fund flows, better corporate earnings, and IPO activities. Our preferred big cap picks for 2018 are Axiata, Dialog and Tenaga. We lower our en ...
CIMB’s top picks for 2018 (Mid Caps) WATCHLIST 8 We expect 2018 to be a more volatile and challenging year compared to 2017. Potential challenges include slower GDP growth, cost pressures, competition from disruptive technologies, election cycle and earnings risks from banks and utilities. We expect these concerns to be priced-in in 1H18, and the market should improve in 2H18 due to stronger foreign fund flows, better corporate earnings, and IPO activities. Our preferred big cap picks for 2018 are Axiata, Dialog and Tenaga. We lower our en ...
CIMB’s top picks for 2018 (Large Caps) WATCHLIST 10 We expect 2018 to be a more volatile and challenging year compared to 2017. Potential challenges include slower GDP growth, cost pressures, competition from disruptive technologies, election cycle and earnings risks from banks and utilities. We expect these concerns to be priced-in in 1H18, and the market should improve in 2H18 due to stronger foreign fund flows, better corporate earnings, and IPO activities. Our preferred big cap picks for 2018 are Axiata, Dialog and Tenaga. We lower our en ...
AmInvestment Bank's Top Buy Stock Picks 2018 WATCHLIST 10 We maintain our end-2018 FBM KLCI Index target of 1,900pts based on 17.5x 2018F earnings. This is at a 1x multiple premium to the 5-year historical average of about 16.5x, which we believe is justifiable based on the cyclical upturn in corporate earnings, as reflected in an 8.2% growth in FBM KLCI earnings in 2018F (on the heels of a 3.8% growth in 2017F). We are positive on the outlook for the local equity market in 2018. We believe the major underperformance of the local equity market vs. its ...
TA Securities' Top Buy Stock Picks 2018 WATCHLIST 14 2018 is expected to be a mixed bag with the impending 14th GE driving up the FBMKLCI in the 1H18 before ending the year at 1,835, based on 16x CY19 EPS. On the local front, the resilient economy, corporate earnings recovery, crude oil price stability and FBMKLCI’s undemanding valuation vis-à-vis regional peers are valid drivers for the equity market. A BN victory would be another plus factor to hold up market sentiment momentarily on continuity in policy matters. Any rally could fizzle out in th ...
UOB's Top Picks for 2018 WATCHLIST 10 Sieving Out The Gems While Malaysian equities should outperform in 1Q18, prospects would be less shiny post general election which is widely expected to be held in Mar-Apr 18. Domestically, apart from an uncertain political landscape, the firm headline economic indicators are still not translating into strong domestic consumption and corporate earnings growth. We advocate a trading-oriented and mid-to-large cap biased investment strategy for 1Q18, with focus on mega infrastructure, E&E, tou ...
Affin Hwang Capital's Top Calls for Year 2018 WATCHLIST 10 2018 Outlook: Ripe for a re-rating We remain Positive on the FBMKLCI as we believe that there is further room for global equity markets to rally. The FBMKLCI, which has lagged behind, should finally play catch up. Low foreign ownership in the equity market, a still undervalued Ringgit, the return of corporate earnings growth and attractive valuations form the basis of our thesis for stronger returns on the FBMKLCI in 2018. Improving consumer and business sentiment and a pre-election rally could ...
The Edge Financial Daily's Top 10 Stock Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 10 While uncertainties in the market are certain, this has not stopped investors and fund managers from attempting the absurd in order to hit a "home run" in their stock picks. One of the key themes that will come into play in 2017 will be the US President-elect Donald Trump's policies as well as a possible increase in the pace of rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve. This would lead to a stronger US dollar that could benefit some of the export players. Thematic investing continues to ...
Hong Leong Investment Bank's Top Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 10 Focus on earnings certainty. We advocate defensive stance in stocks with earnings certainty and domestic oriented catalysts. Despite expectation of modest growth recovery and firmer commodity prices, there could be sporadic externally-induced volatility could shock the market. Ringgit reversal could spice up sentiment. The recipes for a market rebound are almost here, i.e. growth stabilisation, firmer commodity prices, with the exception of stronger ringgit outlook. Top Picks : Big Caps: Digi, ...
MIDF's Top Buy for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 9 LOOKING FORWARD TO A BRIGHTER 2017 • Malaysia’s GDP is expected to slightly rebound in 2017, based on the prospect of a stronger trade activity. But we are wary danger of the possibility of countries with strong purchasing power to lean more towards imports substitution. • However, at the moment we remain optimistic with the better exports performance and hence economic growth in year 2017. Furthermore, we remain slightly bullish on the expectation that BNM’s measures on Ringgit will give a grad ...
RHB's Top Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 15 Escalating external risks have forced us to reconsider our more positive outlook in the preceding quarter’s strategy report. Uncertainty over US policies and their impact on growth, interest rates, USD strength and direction of portfolio flows are weighing on EM sentiment and creating volatility in the forex markets. Hopes that the US economy would provide a lift to global growth are not assured, while the growing wave of antiestablishment sentiment could put the EU in danger of disintegrati ...
PublicInvest Research's Top Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 9 The one major push factor to drive market participants out in droves at this point or even in the foreseeable future is the further weakening of the Ringgit, but which would only affect foreign investors specifically. Domestic investors flush with cash should be primed for re-entry. While still early days in assessing the potential impact of President-elect Trump’s action plans and ramifications on the rest of the world, we are cautiously optimistic that level heads will prevail. Our year-end t ...
Maybank IB Research's Top Buy Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 10 We expect a mild pick-up in Malaysia’s growth as real GDP is expected to be at +4.4% in 2017 (2016E: +4.2%), underpinned by sustained consumer spending growth momentum, stronger growth in investments on progress of existing and rollout of new major infrastructure and investment projects, and the rebound in government consumption expenditure. The wild card is external trade due to the risk on US-China trade relation, although the rise in crude oil price in particular and the firming of commodity ...
Affin Hwang Capital's Top Calls for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 18 Major financial markets in Malaysia have been affected by global portfolio rebalancing in the aftermath of the US Presidential Election. The fear of capital controls resurfacing has caused the Ringgit to be hit particularly hard, despite the BNM and government authorities repeatedly quelling the rumours. We believe with good reason that capital controls will not happen. Unlike in 1998, Malaysia runs a current-account surplus, has ample excess liquidity residing at the BNM, is on an improving fi ...
Kenanga's Top Picks for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 15 In a nutshell, we believe the market will likely to be volatile in view of the more aggressive rate hike decision in the US. Besides, policy and direction of the Trump’s presidency could spark more uncertainties. The underlying market conditions seem mixed and the relatively low excess liquidity in the domestic banking system remains a concern. Coupled with the underlying weak tone in ringgit, we have yet to see a strong reversal in foreign fund flows. The good news, however, could be the emerge ...
The Star Fund Managers' Stock Pick for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 4 [1] GENTING Malaysia Bhd (GenM) embarked on its RM10.4bil Genting Integrated Tourism Plan (GITP) two years ago, which will see the hilltop location getting a facelift with a new 20th Century Fox theme park, refurbished hotel rooms, a new 250-suite premium hotel, a shopping centre (Sky Avenue) and a high-speed cable car system. Previously, many had regarded GenM’s assets as being on the matured side, with a jaded theme park and rather old hotel rooms. TA Investment, however, opines that GenM dese ...
The Star Writers' Stock Pick for Year 2017 WATCHLIST 4 [1] POHUAT is an export-based furniture maker will likely deliver robust earnings growth again in 2017 after an impressive performance in 2016. For one thing, the expected further strengthening of the US dollar will be a boon for the company. [2] VS Industry is poised for a record performance on production volume growth, supported by the strong US dollar. The largest electronics manufacturing services provider in Malaysia is set to achieve this on the back of significant sales volume growth exp ...

MIDF’s Top 20 Under a Billion Year 2016 WATCHLIST 20 The "20 under a billion stocks" were selected largely based on bottom-up screenings and each of the 20 companies possesses its own unique company-specific factors. MIDF Research selected these small cap stocks because they exhibited markedly higher beta since mid-2013, and that investors can profit from the small cap swings. The continuation of small cap swings may be dependent on liquidity dynamics. We reckon continued net purchases among local investors are necessary to support the ...

Kenanga's Top Picks for 2016 WATCHLIST 10 Our view remains unchanged. We firmly believe that the expectations of US Fed further raising its benchmark discount rate will continue to cause high volatility in capital flows across global capital markets. Nevertheless, our decent index target of 1,755 still implies >6% potential gains from the current level. In addition, as we see no immediate earnings and price re-rating catalysts amid relatively high valuations as per the historical PER band, the local equity market is likely to be tra ...

The Edge Financial Daily's Stock Picks for 2016 WATCHLIST 10 AFTER a volatile year when the FBM KLCI fell 3.44% and the ringgit erased 23% of its value against the US dollar, investors may hard-pressed to invest in Bursa Malaysia counters.
