Spurred by foreign buying

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+1.0%) climbed higher for the seventh session on a broad based rally with more than two thirds of the key index components advanced on the back of foreign buying. The lower liners ended mixed, while broader market closed mostly positive, led by the construction sector (+2.7%).

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets ended mostly higher as the Dow recovered all its intraday losses to finish flat, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq rose 0.3% and 0.7% respectively boosted by gains in technology stocks with the US Federal Reserve officials looks to taper the stimulus by end of this year. Both the European and Asia stockmarkets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI closed above the 1,600 psychological level amid persistent buying from foreign funds over the past week and sentiment remained positive on the back of the discussion of international borders reopening going forward. The recovery theme sectors such as construction, building material and financial services sectors saw substantial gains and may remain under the limelight in the near term ahead of Budget 2022. Meanwhile, the plantation counters are gaining traction amid a jump in CPO price; the CPO price has rebounded and surged by 3.4% to close above the RM5,000 level.

Sector focus:. The plantation sector may attract buying interest with the CPO price charging to its all-time-high position. Besides, the recovery theme sector such as banking, consumer and construction may remain attractive under the economic reopening condition and may perform well ahead of the Budget 2022.
