Our Thoughts

Wall Street staged a relief rebound following a dreadful performance of US equities last week amid a marginal decline in the US 10-year yield that closed at 3.92%. As such, the DJI Average added 72 points while the Nasdaq was also up by 72 points after a choppy session. Over in Hong Kong, the HSI lost 66 points to below the 20,000 mark or a YTD low as foreign funds continued with their sell-down. Sentiment has turned hesitant as about China’s economic recovery as investors are now looking at the “two sessions” meeting in Beijing, China from March 4 on hopes of more policy stimulus. Back home, the FBM KLCI pared earlier losses to close on a flat note thanks largely to some late buying on banking stocks. For today, we believe some bargain hunting activities to emerge soon as the benchmark index had fallen by 2.7% YTD depicting that local equities are trading at very reasonable valuations. We reckon the Banks, Plantation and Telcos stocks are ripe for accumulation. Reflecting the reverse in sentiment, the Ringgit had also weakened against the greenback currently at RM4.45/USD1.
