Our Thoughts

Wall Street ended mixed as concerns over Jerome Powell’s comment of a prolonged high interest rates environment continue to spook traders. As such, the DJI Average declined by 58 points while the Nasdaq rebounded by 46 points as the US 10-year yield inched higher at almost the 4.0% mark. In Hong Kong, the selldown on Hong Kong equities gathered pace on fresh concerns over China’s latest overhaul on regulation over the financial sectors. As a result, the index lost a massive 483 points to end at just above the 20,000 level. On the domestic front, the FBM KLCI maintained its lackluster performance as the index fell 4 points amid a weak regional performance. For today, we reckon the index to remain stuck within a tight range of between 1,450- 1,460. Meanwhile, reports that the RM50-55bn High Speed Rail (HSR) project could be revived provided it is funded by the private sector should inject some excitement into the Construction sector. Amongst others, we believe contractors namely Gamuda, YTL Corp, MRCB and IJM Corp could be the frontrunners for the project.
