Beshom Holdings Bhd is expected to post stronger earnings in the second half (2H) FY23 on increased contributions from its retail and wholesale segments due to major festive sales and higher footfall, CGS-CIMB Research said.

NTPM Holdings Bhd is expected to book sequentially higher earnings, potentially leading to a core net profit in the third quarter of financial year 2023 (3Q23), says CGS-CIMB Research.
